Red Letter Media Reviews (Plinkett & Half in the Bag)

There are faint hints of a Rey/Finn romance that could work out, and why not? Interracial relationships, bisexual relationships between Finn/Poe, it could work wonders with Disney's plans for diversification!

I thought RLM might have "enhanced" footage from the film to make it look utterly putrid, dialing the saturation and exposure WAY beyond acceptable levels for any competent DI artist.

 

Incredibly enough, no, they actually graded the film to look that fucking awful. Yikes!

 

Legitimate incompetence by the colour gradist? Or have Sony staff reached the point where they're sabotaging their own movies as a middle finger to clueless, meddling executives who don't understand the basics of film or photography? I'm leaning towards the latter.

There's going to be widespread internet uproar when certain sections realise Rose is going to be Finn's love interest and there's nothing going on between him and Poe. I don't know if I'll be able for the twitter drama.

I think his best criticism of TFA in his Plinkett review was how it lacked any sexuality, as in none of the characters seem attracted to one another, which would otherwise create drama. Maybe it didn't need it because it was an introductory film, but Rogue One lacked any romance either! Which suggests a pattern in these movies that the studio wants them to be as sterile and sexless and possible to reach as many demographics as desired.

 

Right on!

Probably did it more out of obligation than anything.

What obligation? There are films more deserving of Plinkett's anal-ysis than TFA!

Yeah like Independence Day Resurgence. But there's just one problem, Mike Stoklasa claims to like that movie, which struck me as bizarre.

For the sheer fact that he did the prequels, fans were expecting him to do TFA simply because it's a new Star Wars film, regardless of the fact that it didn't fit the mold for those types of reviews.

And that's why TFA itself wasn't even the focus of the review, it just didn't lend itself to the type of harsh criticism that could fulfill the requirements of the previous treatments in the series.  It was just an excuse to poke the various branches of the franchise and its fan base.

I get the feeling his TFA review was more like a general discussion on the positive and negative and the renaissance TFA has inspired in the Star Wars franchise. Also Mike Stoklasa liked the film and said as much in the Half in the Bag episode. TFA didn't seem like a film I thought he would Plinkettize at all.

The TFA review pre-empted a lot of the problems with Rogue One, funnily enough (and soon, the Han Solo spinoff).

 

The Disney-fication of Star Wars.
