If YouTube had a greatest hits album, “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Review” would have to be on it, sandwiched in-between “The REAL Energizer Bunny” and “Lawrence Welk Meets Velvet Underground.” In case you haven’t seen the RedLetterMedia production, all you need to know is that it involves “Harry S. Plinkett,” a.k.a. Minnesota-based filmmaker Mike Stoklasa, ripping apart the goofiest film in the Star Wars series, exposing all its innumerable plot holes and dumb decisions and Gungan bullsh*t. (He later did the same for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, too.) Also, you should watch all seven parts of it right now.
Anyway, Plinkett’s review is also a helpful delight because instead of merely trashing the film, he also describes how it could have been better. Fibr3Optix’s did the same thing this week, but with the immeasurably awful season eight of Dexter. He lays out how the show’s final season SHOULD have gone. Needless to say, no treadmills are involved (though the way he pronounces “LaGuerta” is maddening). Unfortunately, the clip’s not embeddable, so you’ll have to watch it here, and then come back and watch the Trinity Killer dance until season eight is over.
