Red Letter Media has become an Internet sensation with their lengthy detailed (and scathing) “Harry Plinkett” video reviews of the Star Wars prequels and the TNG era movies. Today they released their review of the 2009 Star Trek movie and so you would expect it got ripped to shreds right? Wrong. Watch how it works out below.
Red Letter Media takes on Star Trek 2009
Red Letter Media’s past reviews of the Star Wars prequels and the TNG movies have been brutally entertaining – all voiced by the curmudgeon persona of “Harry S. Plinkett” who seems to hate everything. Their 70-minute takedown of the Phantom Menace released last December was trumpeted by Star Trek’s Damon Lindelof and Simon Pegg, appeared on dozens of movie sites and has over 2 million views on YouTube. So the review of the 2009 Star Trek movie was expected to be another flame fest, however that isn’t what happened. The 67-minute review does some good nitpicking and points out how the film was made to appeal to the "stupid masses", but the entertaining review is probably the most positive of the Red Letter Media series.
Here it is in two parts (via: www.redlettermedia.com).
