I would like to see a reimagining of his original star wars prequel reviews. Maybe something happens that changes the whole timeline and he likes them. Hahahaha. No the matrix trilogy. It has everything from character development in the first movie to just filling the movie with less plot more action towards the end. And stupid inconsistencies. Oh the Matrix should be next.
PLease do Matrix reviews!
For what purpose? So you can be all like “yeah they sucked!” and shit? Why not review them yourself?
I personally wanna see the Matrix reviews so i can pinpoint EXACTLY why the 2 & 3 sucked ^^
But you won’t get that – you’ll only get the author’s opinion and perspective, with some points you probably hadn’t thought of, and some you already had.
You may not agree with the reasons HE thinks they sucked.
I personally rather like the Matrix sequels, there moments in there that I find absolutely awesome and some scenes that are atrocious.
There are tons of all kinds of flaws there that I’m aware of, but either like that way, don’t mind them, or actually loathe. It’s quite easy to pinpoint certain aspects (the “stoic” acting and decrease in personality, overly gratuitous action and dialogue, reduced grit, missed plot opportunities etc.) that contribute to this whole “Matrix sequels were meh” thing.
I already know MY reasons for having these views, and there’s tons of things more I could learn from sitting down and analyzing some stuff or reading other reviews, and if Plinkett did it there sure would be lots of points in it that would be enlightning, but there might be things I’ll disagree with – because what sucks for him wouldn’t necessarily suck for me.
I thought that they were decent sequels, don’t really see what’s wrong with them
try confusedmatthew.com – he has some good points of why the matrix sequels sucked.
also his star wars prequel reviews are quite informative – though not as entertaining as mr Plinketts of course
I liked confused matthew for a little while, but tired of him. Sometimes he makes a point of not getting it. His matrix reviews are solid, even funny at times, but I couldn’t even make it through the first part of his No Country For Old Men review, and I didn’t even like that film when I first saw it.
Because if he did it, the reviews might suck
There are tons of Matrix reviews out there, you might as well ask “why not watch one of those other countless reviews?”.
That’s a terrible reason to not do something. ANYTHING you do in life “might suck.”
Just ask the Wachowskis. [smiley face]
Maybe some people just want to be validated.
I love the Matrix as a whole, but so much of Reloaded and Revolutions were just mind numbingly horrible. Hearing another perspective would just thrill me~! And that’s after listening to the philosophers that loved the movies and the critics that hated them in the ultimate collection. People dissecting things you love doesn’t get old if your heart is in it.
Please review the Transformers films! Please! They would be perfect for your format. They are big-budget “popcorn films” that fail on every level and shit on a beloved franchise, and some reason or another became big hits
I disagree. They’re pretty decent schlock. The 2nd one is terrible, but the 1st and the 3rd are pretty exciting bombastic, popcorn movies that are so big and grandiose the the excitement of spectacle makes up for the other failings.
Need more Half in the Bag! Huge fan of all of your work, even the movies! Why didn’t you mention that the ONLY autobot to die in the first Transformers movie was the black guy That is really the only thing I remember about the movie….
Superman Returns. Review it and I will post naked photos of my big breasted fiance. I expect the review within a week. K thanx.txt
I’ll throw in a picture of my balls
There’s no reason to do Twilight, that movie is trash without question. Also you would have to watch twilight to do it, which is an absurd idea. Watch the HBN twilight review if you really want to
it is like 5 minutes long and very effective, basically all that Twilight deserves.
It needs to be something that people have actually seen with some relevance, but also something that essentially ‘forced’ people to see shit because the earlier stuff was good. I’m guessing Terminator will be next, since the first two have merit but after that it’s pretty weak.
Boo hoo for you. Nobody will miss you.
We really need some more reviews you fat fuck. I’m thinking Roadhouse.
hey! where the fuck are you! make more reviews
Half in the bag’s worth giving a chance. I wasn’t overly keen at first, but I’m starting to think it’ll have more mileage than the plinkett reviews in the end. Plinkett is funny, but like all jokes, it’ll be hilarious right up to the point it isn’t.
I was reluctant to watch half in the bag for a while, but once you stray from the mr.plinkette stuff and get used to it it can actually be very entertaining and they still make some brilliant observations about movies.
I personally love half in the bag now
Exactly. At first I too wasn’t a big fan but I enjoy it now. I don’t always agree with their opinions (Looper was awful) but they’re good reviews.
Same actually, I enjoy Plinkett but Half in the Bag offers ‘characters’ that aren’t psychotic which is nice. Plus things like their Jack & Jill review were in depth and hilarious, simply in a different tone.
when i first started watching the plinkett reviews i didn’t like half in the bag, but after a few months they sorta grew on me and i ended up subscribing
You should do Prometheues, the avengers (not that that was bad) and when it comes out, the hobbit. Also if you can slip in some more micheal bay is a cock references that would be good.
Prometheus, The avengers (not that, that was bad) And when it comes out, the hobbit no matter how good it is.
Do you still make plinkett reviews?
I would love to see Plinkett destroy the Clone Wars movie.
Everyone keeps raving about the Matrix sequels, it’d be almost surreal if the upcoming “two reviews” were something else… lol.
I really lke the Plinkett reviews, but I guess the reason he can’t really do anymore is lbecause, the implication is, that if Mr. Plinkett reviews the movie, it sucked.
The Star Wars prequels, the TNG Star Wars movies, and the last Indiana Jones movie DID all suck, so it was legitimate to slam them, but pretty soon the crappy ass movies will all be reviewed, and he’ll have to move on to good movies, which will just piss people off. I’d like to see more reviews, but not if he’s picking apart awesome movies just to do a review, and possibly ruining my enjoyment of a previously enjoyed film. Cynicism has it’s limits.
Someone here hasn’t done their homework, it seems.
-Star Trek 8 *didn’t* suck, it was a very good movie overall – Plinkett introduced the “cynicism” by generally ignoring its other qualities and focusing on the character inconsistencies and how they betrayed the show. Not too much cynicism for you, apparently…
-He did Star Trek 11, and that wasn’t overly cynical and at the same time entertaining, right?
-Boy, there are so many more disappointing movies out there… even if you only count the 3-4 “major” ones, with a release rate like this it’ll be at least a few years until he’d have to consider running out of the material.
-A new review, or two of them, are going to be released pretty soon.
-If your “enjoyment” of a film is “ruined” by a negative review, that makes you kind of malleable doesn’t it?
Love Half in the Bag though it did take a while to get used to it.Love the story arc and the equally black humour tone to Plinketts reviews(personally id like it if they uploaded the Resident Evil Movies Commentary in its entirity as seen briefly in the first part of that review) and the fact that we get geet the perspective of both of them on newer movies but also like getting “Plinkets” view on older flawed movies to compliment them when they have the time to produce them.
Half in the bag is hit or miss and everyone knows it, while Mr. Plinkett is solid gold.
Im still waiting for The last Airbender review.
You don’t have to get all worked up on their behalf, I doubt they care.
I was watching The Final Frontier when you posted the link to Titanic. Not just watching it but a scene with David Warner.
Plinkett. YOU FUCK!
I knew you were hacking into my computer activity! You creepy motherfucker.
On that note, I’m a gigantic fan of Plinkett reviews. You used the same trick as I did, replace the drawings, except I did it when Leo is drawing Rose McGowan naked. Replaced her with a male genitals and lots of male nudeness.
But Plinkett has the best reviews (psychotic alter ego that he is). Best humor and best criticisms. I’d love to see the rest of Star Trek reviewed and also the Matrix series. I wanna see how much you really fucking hate the sequels.
REVIEW THE MATRIX SEQUELS!!! I’M SAYING THIS BLOCK CAPITALS!!! RAAAAAAA!!!!!
Matrix 2 and 3 would be great material for Plinkett. I assume that Mike felt about them the way most of us did.
Do The Hobbit and how it raped my life
watch half in the bag
Even months ago when you typed this they were putting out new material???
I really do love the Plinkett reviews (and I’m totally not the “fanboy” demographic lol) mainly because, while funny, it’s so rare to find such wonderful, analytical, in depth reviews of films. Again, it may be wrapped up in brilliant humor, but it’s like having a film studies seminar. I totally understand how much time and effort goes into such a lengthy review – but I get so much out of them, besides great entertainment.
Some of these ads that come up with the video are…well, for lack of a better term, weird.
Psh, come on people half in the bag is great.
We definitely needhim to review Prometheus. I don’t know why he won’t Given that it’s supposed to be part 1 of 3 equally appalling cinematic abortions, I’m seriously confused as to why this low-hanging fruit hasn’t been so thoroughly shat on.
There’s already a special half-in-the-bag for prometheus. It’s really funny.
Half in the bag is a cheap renewable idea, which means it keeps RLM in funds. Plinkett is great and personally I like it just once or twice a year. It gives me something to look forward to at christmas and it makes me feel grateful that RLM keeps going. I think the games review they did…. didnt quite work, however I appreciate that they keep trying new things to impress their loyal and ever growing fanbase. 1 day, sometime soon i reckon, they are gonna hit on something and its going to be as big south park.
Please dear Mr. Plinkett, review Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows (and research the original)
My soul still hurts from the deep layers of evil coating this cinematic mind fuck. I need the therapy that only your devine ravings can provide.
I want to see him cover Matrix and Twilight one day just because Plinkett reviews are awesome and those would be great material.
REVIEW THE ROOM! It is the worst movie ever made and the reason for its existence is purely to be made fun of for the rest of time.
Come on review those awful Twilight movies and I will name all my non-ugly children after you! I swear it!
why would you want to see him do a GOOD movie?
More Plinkett! That character is saving lives!
It’s not just bad movies, it’s bad movies that ruin good franchises. Like terminator 3&4, alien 4, alien vs predator anything. There’s tons of bad bond movies to pick from and good ones to compare them to (though I don’t think redletter like bond at all). That’s the point, you compare the new crap to the old gold.
I DEMAND more Mr. Plinkett reviews! Especially the Matrix sequels, Twilight and Michael Bay’s Transformers.
If you fail to comply, Lord Plinkett, I shall write a strongly worded letter to you.
These reviews are really funny and smart, but for the love of christ please stop with the “jokes” about raping and murdering women. I assure you that whatever line you think you’re toeing, you’re not succeeding.
In addition to being utterly opprobrious and not particularly funny, I think they are probably standing in the way of attracting more people to these reviews and your material more generally. And what is the upside? Only the pathetic loser fanboy segment of your fanbase really like these. They’re typically bereft of subtlety and they stop the review dead.
And what makes you think you can get away with this? Think about it: you wouldn’t do a review where Plinkett raises a lynch mob and kills random black people, would you? But is joking about raping women really all that different? If anything, it’s WORSE, since lynch mobs are more or less a thing of the past, whereas something like one in three women in America are sexually assaulted at some point in their lifetime.
Anyway, time to leave the juvenile bits of these things in the past. You won’t lose your the poorly-adjusted, women-resenting portion of your fanbase, and you’ll make it possible to attract new fans. It’s a can’t-miss.
Les Habitants, these reviews are more about Plinkett than the review itself. If you want normal sane reviews watch Half In The Bag, the fact is that the character Plinkett is a horrible and sick human being. Also I think you might have some sort of pent up anger deep down inside for a segment of redlettermedia fanbase that welcome to anti PC bullshit you get from people like you whining about what kind of jokes are “apropiate”… get over it. I kinda like the ludicrous humor of how much lower can Plinkett get, and it’s specifically these snippets of sick humor that is the charm of Plinkett…. otherwise go watch The Nostalgia Critic or something. I appreciate subtlety in humor as well, but that’s not what I watch Plinkett. If suddenly Plinkett was all PC and didn’t make jokes about keeping women in his basement, then what’s the fucking point to Plinkett reviews. Also I find it funny that it’s the rape thing that gets to you, but whatever…. jacking off to 9 year old Olson twins movies until your TV set breaks from all the pressure your stream of cum is exerting against it is totally fine (and more hilarious than rape jokes).
First of, re: your olson twins comment, since when is it legitimate to assume that someone is fine with something just because they didn’t expressly say they weren’t fine with it? I mean, should I assume you’re fine with hunting men for sport just because you didn’t say you weren’t fine with it?
Second, I certainly don’t agree that there would be no point to these reviews if the abduction/rape/murder jokes were dropped all of a sudden. In fact, it strikes me as downright weird that you seem to think that these are THE point. If they’re the point, why talk about movies at all?
See, I like these reviews because they’re acerbic and edifying. And I certainly like quite a bit of crassness in the humor–to me, that’s part of their charm. But what makes them funny is what typically makes things funny, namely, the acid-tongued phrasing and the timing and tone of the delivery. That’s whats going to keep people coming back, not tone-deaf and creepy asides about raping people.
You also avoided my point about how it is unlikely we’ll see any lynch mobs in future reviews. There had better be an answer as to why that wouldn’t be fine, but the rape jokes would be.
There had better?
What’re you going to do if there’s not?
Sit in front of an episode of Melissa and Joe with a big drum of ice cream?
