Cool Videos: A 90-minute review of Attack of the Clones

04.05.2010

You may have caught the epic PHANTOM MENACE review posted over seven videos on YouTube. It was originally though to be the work of an overly-obsessive fan, then perhaps just a comedian playing a part but eventually it turned out to be a little mix of the two. The PHANTOM MENACE review went on to almost 2 million views and many fanboys anxiously awaited when the so-called Mr. Plinkett would release his review of ATTACK OF THE CLONES. Well wait no longer. The CLONES review is even longer (spanning nine YouTube videos) and is pretty much what you'd expect. I'll embed the first part of the review below (for some reason, part 1 was removed by YouTube, so we updated to Part 2) and then you can check the related videos to watch the remaining eight segments.

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Just giving it some more green to balance out the Lucas-tards.

That said, the serial killer framing device is really lame and devalues the review, but it's still fantastic.

Some motherless cunts at the Cartoon Network had part 1 pulled for no apparent fucking reason. Here's a link to another upload of it: [link]

Or Youtube search "RedLetterMedia - Ep II Part 1.flv" if this link shit doesn't work.

FURTHER proof that no matter how stupid something is, it's still bound have lots of fanatical supporters. It's a freakin' child-friendly sci-fi/fantasy, FFS. He should go find logical faults in comic books sometime. All this (most likely virgin-at-35 & obese) person does is shit all over movies that are actually fun to watch if you get your head out of your ass. And Terminal83 needs to stop trolling everyone who doesn't like it!

Pfft! Right, I'm trolling because people are too close minded to see the video. Sad, man.

I tried to give it a fair chance. I got up to the point where he mentioned Obi-wan's and Anakin's friendship, and realized that this could apply to any movie. Obi-wan and Anakin talk about things the did in the past that weren't scene on screen! Wow, every movie from Lord of the Rings to Iron Man does that also. What a joke, if I can pick out a flaw like that in the first 5 minutes you can bet I won't watch the other 85, and I feel nothing but pity for those actually entertained by this.

Sure, the prequels had its share of flaws, but there are even more in this review. FACT.

I'm not a Star Wars fanboy or anything but I dunno how you can't see the criticism with that comment. All we've known from the original series is that Obi-Wan and Anakin were good friends, jedi partners and Obi-Wan trained Anakin. We get this built-up matchup between them in Episode IV as they hint at feeling each other's prescence almost the entire movie. What Episode II does is fast forward past ALL OF THAT so we have absolutely no connection to this fundamentally crucial relationship

You should probably pay more attention to the nitpicking. We can see characters reference each other's past events (like Frodo and Sam) in LOTR because we actually SEE MOST OF IT in the movie and draw a connection.

You're missing my point, John Locke. Basically, these same compaints can be aimed at any movie if you put enough thought into it. The prequels get a lot of blame because fans put more expectations into star wars than your average film. Sure, the prequels could have been better and I would have liked some things to have been different, but this review just comes off like someone whining that Lucas didn't make the movie they wanted.

ah, I understand what you meant now.. and I see where you're coming from. It's also true to a point. We really could rip apart any movie if we tried hard enough.

Terminal_83, Your prerequisite for an open mind is watching someone over analyze a bad Star Wars movie?

The few of us who've spoken against it, have seen either enough (it really doesn't take much) or a previous "review" (which I have, including this first part).

And what's it to you? You've gone after almost everyone who has said something against it. Are you the guy that made these? Are you personally insulted by our lack of enjoyment? (If so please make something more constructive next

The review honestly (as a Star Wars fan this is sad to say) is spot on. Except.. he went about it wrong..the fact that he talks like a moron and throws in stupid creepy rape victim comedy turns the haters into "Oh! HE made a joke about bagpipes! Stop bashing!"

but if you find the time of day to actually listen to what he says you'll realize that it's entirely true. These movies are horrible and were one huge marketing machine for George Lucas. Don't believe me? Just listen to part 6 about

I'm surprised so many of you are turning your head to this... it really uncovered these prequels and showed how many god damn plot holes they're filled with.

Wow

I'm really surprised that people love this so much. It's a sad day when a "review" like this is championed. I mean the first joke he makes is against bag pipes. Really? That's your start? Very clever.

I dunno. I guess it's just to easy to make fun of those movies and that voice gives me a headache. How can people take 90 minutes of that? I'll tune in for the review of the review. You know that's gotta be next. This guy will probably do his own commentary track and release the DVD's.

The guy is a genius. I hope George Lucas watches all of these before he does ANYTHING with Star Wars in the future. However, his whole rapist, kidnapper, torturer thing is not funny at all, and doesn't mesh with his personality or opinions.

They're going to do Revenge of the Sith! Man, can't wait to see that one. This series was as funny as The Phantom Menace review. He really does open up the floor for discussion and reveals the flaws of the films that not even the most observant viewers would have noticed. It's great.

Terminal_83,

And what film doesn't have flaws? Do you just like having the obvious pointed & spelled out to you? That's what this guy does. Nothing he says is new. It has all been said before, hundreds of times over.

I agree with Moe and Skellington. I hate this guys attempts to repeat the same shit we know about the films and want to get his points across when he could get them pretty well from watching the film itself. Just another guy wanting itself. Ok so the movie was by the far the worst of the series, I'm not gonna waste 90 minutes of my life getting explained why...

Some juvenile humour aside, this guy knows his stuff. If you actually listen to his points (especially in the Phantom Menace review) you will see how well he knows films.

Proof that reviews can actually be worse than the movies they shit on.

I don't like the prequels as much as the next fanboy, but this dude's reviews are just pathetic.
