Red Letter Media Finally Takes Down STAR WARS: EPISODE III – REVENGE OF THE SITH

     December 31, 2010


Last December, Red Letter Media delivered a scathing 70-minute review of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.  The epic review, which at times veered into odd obsessions over pizza rolls and dead hookers but mostly made astute and intelligent points about the reviled prequel, was greeted with cheers.  This past April, RLM delivered a 90-minute dissertation on the many failings of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.  Now, on the last day of 2010, RLM has a whopping 110 minute review of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.  I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but if the previous installments are any indication of quality, I’m in for a hilarious and insightful review that’s almost as long as the movie it’s reviewing.

Hit the jump to check out the epic review.

    It was worth the wait.

    I fail to see to point of these “reviews” sure the films were bad but ROTS was released in 2005.
    That’s 5 years ago and I got over the fact these films were bad and moved on with my life, after all, they were only films.

    So much better than the actual movies.

      Anyone who likes these can eat a cock.

    Voice: annoying
    Humor: not very funny

    But his review is pretty accurate. I’ll give him that.

  • Alex–

    Very hilarious great reviews. Better than the films. Can’t believe George Lucas wrote the script after starting the film. What an asswipe.

    When you are finished focusing on RedLetterMedia’s Plinkett review of the Revenge of the Sith movie, how about spending some time focusing on how the media landscape from that time period was equally as troubling. From Star Wars’ fan attacks on subcultures to FBI/ICE joint operations sending people to jail, the months around the release of Revenge of the Sith were interesting times, not just for Star Wars fandom but for issues like freer internets, the mispronunciation of Sith, intercultural and cross international boarder expression and much much more. %20’s, THEE BACKSLACPKPING WITH MEDIA, condenses the hundreds of hours of individual to corporate media into a 3.5 hour documediamentary which you can choose to spend as little or as much time as you want.

    Think you got it? then watch some:

    Confused? Then here’s a piece of a review:

    Quote: “As you probably have guessed, this is not your typical fanedit. It’s a documentary about Star Wars, yet that is not its mission. It’s a mashup yet its goal is not necessarely the entertainment value usually associated with such edits. The best way I could describe this thing is that it’s a commentary on the current state of the media. No wait – it’s a mockumentary on the way we perceive media. No, that’s not exactly it. It’s an extrapolation on how media will be fed to us somewhere down the line in 20, 30 years. Actually, it is all these things.

    Thee Backslacpkping With Media is a meticulously assembled piece of art which has so many levels of depths that it is almost impossible to review in a conventional way. It is rather meant to be analyzed, deconstructed and talked about endlessly. It is meant to make us simultaneously examine the impact Star Wars has had on the way movies are marketed; the way the media has handled the hype surrounding the prequels; the way we assimilate information; the current state of the internet and where it’s headed; how corporations are shaping modern copyright laws; how we perceive art and what is “stealing” and what is “hommage” and what is derivative work and… too many questions that I will not go into here, because that is not the purpose of this review.”

    FAQ: (now with more FBI/ICE FOIA Documentation!)


    While watching the movie, I sat there continually wondering WHY I was supposed to care about what was happening to these characters. The review was dead on. While the flick could be visually arresting (if sterile), it is clear that Mr. Lucas is totally surrounded by “Yes” Men (and Women) who are unwilling to tell the Emperor that he was stark naked. However I do admire his ability to get a whole lot of people so lathered up that they’ll gobble up anything he produces. Cameron is pretty good at that too.
