Oh, happy day! Everyone’s favorite movie reviewer/serial killer Mr. Plinkett is back, this time reviewing Attack of the Clones in a massive but scathingly brilliant 9-part, 90 minute review. The first part starts here, but if you don’t have time to watch the entire opus, you should still definitely check out the final section, posted above — if there’s a better, more accurate, more bitter summary of the prequels than cutting Empire Strikes Back‘s Yoda with the prequel Yoda’s actions and dialogue, I don’t have the faintest clue what it would be. Thanks to all 800 bajillion of you who sent this in.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
