...this isn’t your usual fanboy rant, this is an epic, well-edited well-constructed piece of geek film criticism. In fact, the way I learned about the video was from Lost co-creator and Star Trek producer Damon Lindelof, who said “Your life is about to change. This is astounding film making. Watch ALL of it.”
Whole review available on YouTube and the above article.

Yeah, even if you don't have the time, it's worth the first 10mins.  From there most should be sold on watching the rest.  And congrats to the dude who made it cuz it just passed 1M views.

Can't believe I didn't embed Part 1:

All of this guys reviews are hilarious, love his Star Trek TNG movie reviews too.  Oh, and yesterday he put up a trailer for his review of Attack of the Clones, good times.

Can't wait for the Episode 2 review. I wonder if he can reach the bar he set with Episode 1.

I watched the Star Trek reviews. I didn't find them quite as funny as the Stars Wars stuff, but definitely worth watching and chocked full of hilarity. He really nails it with the character difference between TV Picard and movie Picard, and the part where Picard tosses the precious artifact is classic.

I wonder if he'll go after the new Star Trek!

Anyway, thanks for posting.

Some of my favorite parts of the TNG reviews is pointing out the direct contradictions.

"We are not in the business of carrying out revenge"
"And -I- will make them pay for what they've done!"

I can't believe I never noticed movie/TV Picard before either.  I don't think "First Contact" is a good example tho cuz it's such a great, reasonable character flaw... except for, um, all those Borg episodes post-"Best of Both Worlds".  ::nervous laughter::

Yeah, the Insurrection comparison was funnier.  Land now Picard is willing to risk it all to help white people...I mean..."

Mike you need to get 'Plinckett' to do some Riff Traxs with you! :) Just make sure he's tied up like Hannibal Lecter! heh

It's interesting.  Even though I hate "The Phantom Menace" for many reasons, other people manage to find even more stupid things in the movie that I completely missed.  This review did a pretty good job of that.

Yeah, I'd never thought too much about how stupid Qui Gon's decision making really was, though I did pick up pretty quick that it made no sense for the droid army to land on the opposite side of the freaking planet to attack the city...which apparently was the only city on the land on the entire planet.

It would be an excellent idea if the guy who made the 70 min review was invited to riff with Mike and Bill.

oh boy an entire riff filled with jokes about a dead wife he killed and pizza rolls.

I posted this on another forum I'm a part of... almost everyone hated it. They thought the voice was annoying. One person liked it.

Trust me there are more than plenty of fans of this guy. His collection of "what's wrong with your face " t-shirts sold out. His youtube channel has several several raving positive comments and is the 37th most viewed comedy tube this month. You're missing the big picture that this guy is hilarious and popular.

He's funny, but I don't know why he talks like that.

That was my impression. He's trying sound a lot older than he actually is. The voice bugged me at first but after a while, I didn't even think about it. The dude is too damn funny.
