http://www.redlettermedia.com/sith.html This is from Mr. Plinkett's own site. All three parts are here and each part is over 30 minutes long.
His prologue resonates with me. :cry:

Actually it's well over an hour.

He's got an interesting point about how the whole thing is disjointed and just doesn't seem to know what it wants to do... and how fucking obvious it was that Anakin was seriously messed up that even a non-force user could notice it.

I saw a review, can't remember if it was this one, that zeroed in on Padme's "Oh Annakin, you've changed!" line. Changed how, exactly? In Episode 2 he TOLD her that everybody should be forced to live under one strong leader. In episode 2 he TOLD her that he'd just slaughtered a bunch of helpless women and children. In Episode 2 he constantly complained that everyone was trying to keep him down and he wanted more power. Annakin was absolutely consistent in the type of person he was throughout Ep 2 and 3, it's just that it was convenient for the plot for everybody to ignore it or make excuses for it up until now.

That sounds like Confused Matthew.

There's only so many ways to point out the same gaping plot holes and errors in logic, to be fair.

Could well have been, I rather like CM.

As do I, I personally like Confused Matthew, not so much Red Letter Media, his voice puts me to sleep.

I gotta say though, I thought CM's 2001 review was utter tripe. And the fact that he kept on dissing 2001 through most of his 2010 review annoyed me, too.
