This has already been brought up and linked to.

Forty minutes of fanboys talking to a video camera thinking that they're clever. Fuck that noise.

I usually like their reviews and input, even when I disagree.

But this was just awful.

Re: RLM - Half in the Bag does STID [SPOILERS]

Yeah, this "Half in the Bag" was just half assed. Poor showing from RLM.

Yeah, it's not like they ever displayed a lack of critical thinking before.

Re: RLM - Half in the Bag does STID [SPOILERS]

I didn't agree with them completely, but I thought they made some good points about the plot/logic. It is what it is.

Reviews should be 5 minutes or less. I honestly don't know what you can talk about for 45 minutes unless you are recapping or reciting almost the entire movie.

I didn't know Red Letter Media had expanded beyond their original format, except for commentaries, which I never bothered with. Judging from the five minutes of this I sat through, they should probably stick to what they're good at.

Re: RLM - Half in the Bag does STID [SPOILERS]

Watching someone criticise every aspect of a movie destroys my enjoyment of the movie.
The movie and I are in the honeymoon stage now.
I'll watch the 'review' when I'm in the 'married for 10 years' stage.

Re: RLM - Half in the Bag does STID [SPOILERS]

6 months from now most of you guys will be agreeing with almost everything these guys are saying. This movie is well directed and excellent visually... but the script and story logic is about as well written as if you took a room full of 3rd graders and asked them what they wanted to see in a star trek movie.
It IS Star Trek: Fast and Furious. The plot made no sense and has as much substance as the Transformer movies. Which is none.
I do like the movie. And I am resigned to the fact that this is the type of Star Trek we will be getting from now on. But man, I am tired of seeing people defend this movie as if its a great movie and a real thriller brain teaser of a movie. Take Mission Impossible and Fast and Furious and mash them together and add some Star Trek and you have Star Trek Into Darkness

This episode of Half in the Bag was lame. Though I am looking forward to the Plinkett review of Into Darkness.
