Film reviews - Red Letter Media

Postby Gramsci on Wed Aug 20, 2014 7:20 pm

The comedy value of the Star Wars prequels reviews almost made up for the horror of the films.

The Half in the Bag reviews, despite the doughiness, are pretty good. If you ignore the "set" and focus on two guys drinking beer and talking about films.

Not crap.

I'm still waiting on the big reveal that the real purpose of those Plinkett reviews is to trick people into seeing clips of a movie that they(I) had previously sworn never to see.

Not Crap.

I have been an extra on Half in the bag a few times. Jay directed our video for Success, and Jack directed pretty much all of our other videos (except 2) and as stated Choppy is on BotW. They operate on what can only be called a micro-shoe-string budget and their revues are pretty spot on, funny and well thought out. Also they are all great people. Not crap, often better than the movies they are reviewing.

Yeah, a pretty biased NOT CRAP, but a NOT CRAP nonetheless. Mike and Jay have always cracked me the fuck up.

NOT CRAP. I've watched their reviews of the Star Wars prequels more than the films themselves.

NC. I like all of RLM's shows.

It's insane how well their videos are edited.

Exactly, it seems like it's most likely them, a mate on camera and a laptop. I really like it when people bypass the "media world" and put out great content. I'll start clicking on the ads to help the cause.

The Hifi folks would obviously know more than me, but I think these guys have their own studio, and more than decent equipment and film skillzzz. They've been at it for over a decade.

Really not crap. One of my favourite things on the internet.

Yes they have a small, ware house that they film/edit in, the crew is really just Jay and Mike though, they may pull Jack in for editing from time to time, along with a few other people for construction. But I must stress this is a extremely low budget affair, I mean both of them make a modest living off of these + some cushy corporate/university editing gigs. Until about 2-3 years ago they were still doing wedding videos to make the rent.

So great. I dig the humour/skits/silliness. It's not out of place with their personalities displayed during the reviews, so I enjoy it, plus they're funny people. I don't see many movies, and I find it difficult to always articulate what I like or don't like about a movie, so I appreciate really insightful criticism that is back by experience. It's also just fun as shit. The take-down of Adam Sandler is beautiful.

Yeah, this. Absolutely love it. The only thing not great about them is the generic name. And I don't really dislike that, it just reminds me of Red Letter Days and, in turn, Theo Paphitis. The absolute bellend.

I'm not super savvy how the internets work. I assume clicking on the ad link helps them?

It doesn't matter where you put them -- those photos are too small to legible.

RLM is not crap. I dig it all.

They have a Patreon campaign if you want to help 'em out, as well.

I'm sure choppy could expand upon it if he cared to, but suffice to say that there are some REALLY sad weirdos out there obsessed with the RLM gang, to the point where i really hope they're being safe. Fuck 4chan. Should probably leave it at that.

It's a dynamic you see played out over and over again. Random dudes get some attention on the internet, become "internet personalities," draw a dedicated crowd and frustrated nerds eventually are all THAT SHOULD BE ME UP THERE WHERE'S MY YOUTUBE DOLLARS and close in for the kill. Fans become superfans become haters become hater/stalkers. Much internet ink is spilled. Hell, you even see it happen here.

Meanwhile, people who actually get shit done continue to get shit done, and fucked up internet people continue to roll around in their own shit, wondering when their chance at fame will arrive.


TL;DR: It's the internet, man.

I have personally hung out with the members of rlm for hours on end, at parties where very crass things were discussed and many a booze bottle was cleared of all of its liquid and I have never ever heard any of them say anything remotely racist. Also for two people who "hate" each other, Jay and Mike willingly spend a CRAZY amount of time together, I have seen their editing room, it is not a large space.


PS: Jay is looking pretty damn trim these days if I do say so myself.
