Half in the Bag

Episode 3 is up: http://redlettermedia.com/half-in-the-bag/episode-3/

Great episode and some great footage of RLM's trip to Toronto Comic Con with a bonus Jake Lloyd video bomb.

I don't get it. I couldn't get through the first two minutes.

It was supposed to be comedy, right?

No, it's supposed to be the chronological first installment of the six-movie Star Wars series... but I already asked for no PT debates here!




Edit: Okay, that was really funny. The Paul review ran too long, and should have been edited down, but the Con stuff was great. Poor Jake... And it was fun not seeing Plinkett B, and the ending... I appreciate how they're making an effort to keep the audience guessing.

Re: Half in the Bag

It is mundane but it is also just a review show meant to be easily produced and put out weekly.

Though the Paul review was a bit too long, the comic con stuff was great.

Re: Half in the Bag

Meh ... The gushing Paul review was awkward at best, but the Comic Con footage was really no different or better than any other Comic Con footage/coverage I've seen. The clip, though quite long, was certainly nowhere near as entertaining as the reviews. Which, admittedly, at least have some entertainment value to them.

I will say this much for it, though - I was ready to dismiss Paul entirely and now I'm actually considering going to see it based on this review.

Re: Half in the Bag

Well, if you put stock into Stoklasa's opinions -- regardless of how they are delivered -- then I can certainly understand how your opinion of Paul could be altered by the commentary. No issues there. But as a video clip, "Episode 3" is rather underwhelming ... particularly by RLM standards.

Aside from the obvious fact that I generally agree with Stoklasa (still not sure what the hell he was thinking on that Battle: LA review), it was more that I thought Paul was going to be a stupid stoner comedy and I'm happy to hear it is still in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

The new episode is up. They review Sucker Punch.

http://redlettermedia.com/half-in-the-bag/sucker-punch/

I haven't seen the movie yet, but the episode was decent. I wonder if they will be reviewing Day of the Dead in the future after that opening.

Meh. I started skipping through Episode 3, as it was kinda boring. Thought it was funny when the guy was talking about relying on dumb vulgarity. How does Episode 3 start? A bunch of vulgarity.
