thoroughly enjoyed both
wow, the commentary for a new hope was awesome, now I have to decide if its worth it to have episode one playing in my house.
Good Lord!, Are there only 2 previous comments for these commentaries!! Surely more people have listened to them.
Wow kinda wasted 2 hours of my life, Had listened to “A New Hope commentary” before and its rly great and funny.
However The Phantom Menace commentary was a real waste of time, one of the worst things on the RLM website i would say, About 75% of the commentary is just random Plinkett talk about his cats, his dead wife or just random stuff, it could be fun here and there but when the majority of the time is devoted to just random talk it just gets boring.
The actual things said about Phantom Menace was kinda ‘meh’ aswell, nothing really new and funny, some complaints about lack of motivation for the characters, some rants about Jar Jar and the Gungans leader but then back to talking about his cats.
What able-minded RLM fan would complain about Plinkett talking about his cats?
Agreed. I think the point was: Even though he was talking about his cats, it was still about, or more, interesting than the Phantom Menace.
Although I would have preferred a rehash of the original review. They could have even used 90% of the same dialog (which is what I was expecting) and I would have been happier.
i have been listening to the ep4 commentary like a podcast, just at work, listened to it about 5 times. each time i notice something new.
the problem when i try to listen to the ep1 commentary is that i can’t actually remember any of the movie, so i have no idea what he’s talking about. and some of the jokes fall dead flat, like the ‘dart board’ thing.
i guess thats kind of wierd to judge the commentary tracks when im not listening to them properly (while the movie is playing) but its kind of strange how it worked out. also some people say the best reviews are where the reviewer trashes a film they dont like – but with these its almost the opposite, id rather listen to his ep5 review than an ep2 review.
I was shocked at the ep 1 track. An unfunny, unclever waste of time. Hard to believe it’s the same talent that produced the reviews. I was happy to toss them a few bucks to show my support, but I hope they dont take it as a vote for drivel like that.’
How about one for Indiana Jones and The Policy of No Refunds?
Yesterday I listened to both commentaries accompanied by the movies (well, not at the same time) and I decided, Mike, you’re my favorite Red Letter Medium for reasons of wit, ideas, voice talent, (physical comedy), calm and to the point lecture style, jokes and sense of reality. Please keep up your outstanding work!
I think both tracks are great, and also believe the point of the phantom menace being almost about everything but, was in itself genius work.
For what it’s worth, George Carlin is for me one of the highest forms of comedy, especially his latter work.
Mr. Plinkett is right up there. No kidding.
Thank you, Mike Stoklasa, and everyone else involved.
This is great, hahahah, only critique for future ones: don’t have music looping in the background. I like to play the movie’s volume at about 35% so I can still hear the movie but get the commentary track upfront.
Great stuff, all the commentaries are hilarious. My favorite RLM stuff next to the Trek reviews. Keep up all the swell work!
Mike, the Final Frontier commentary is fucking fantastic! (So are your Star Trek reviews).
I would pay real money for a commentary or review of Dark Knight Rises.
I would love to see a review or commentary track for Star Trek : The Motion Picture !
