Re: RLM finally did it / Plinkett reviews Star Trek

It was alright, but he was far too kind to the film.

Re: RLM finally did it / Plinkett reviews Star Trek

Bones ... I would love to read your take on Trek 2009. Could you please link to it? And if you haven't, consider this a fan request for one of your Doctor Who style reviews.

The pleasant thing about his approach is that, in addition to his gimmick, he's put serious thought into his reviews and he's often shed new light on old films. He's a clever fellow.
Is it just one guy? I was under the impression that Harvey Plinkett was a nom de internet for a team of people behind these reviews.

Well, there is probably just one dude who actually does the voiceovers for these reviews, so he's Plinkett, and RedLetterMedia is the team that does the research and production for the reviews.

Re: RLM finally did it / Plinkett reviews Star Trek

Is this the first time he's ever liked a movie? I haven't seen all of them, but I don't remember him ever liking a movie before. And yes, they're more entertaining when he hates the movie. If only the TNG cast had made one more for him to eviscerate.

He was ok with Avatar. I don't think he thought it was the masterpiece everyone else thought it was.

I liked the review. I had the same problem with the convenience of Kirk being on the same ice planet as Scotty & Old Spock.

But Chris Pine is so hot, the movie could be about nothing and I would still watch.

Next puke moment is his pregant wife, who looks about 40 years old....yet Kirk looks like he is maybe 22 years old? It's not impossible, but...uck. Worst of all, of course, the actress su*ks donkey b*lls. Just horrible
Too bad Jennifer Morrison is actually a beautiful young woman. It's not Kirk's wife that's the problem here, it's bearcat`s taste in women. I'm younger than George Kirk, and I still wouldn't mind to take his place next to her.

Jennifer did look a bit rough in her scenes, though. The harsh make-up and lighting probably added to that (and I don't think she looks good as a blonde) and, well, then there's the whole "she was giving birth at the time" thing.

I agree!.... in a movie about which we have complaints about how the Enterprise could not have escaped from a black hole by ejecting and detonating her warp core(s!), in which Spock Prime should not have been able to see Vulcan explode from Delta Vega, in which we find a huge, bright red creature on an ice planet... the film makers actually get it right in that a woman in labor is not going to look like she just walked off the set of a shampoo commercial!

(Of course, if you are from Capella IV and your name is Eleen, you may come through the experience without even working up much of a sweat)(What else would you expect, though, from a Catwoman?)

Thatís only a problem if you assume the creature was indigenous to the area. Maybe it was exiled there because it scared Admiral Archerís dog.

Congratulations! Yours is the third thread posted so far about the Red Letter Media review of Star Trek (2009). Hold on a sec while I merge it with the other two.
