He fucks up and says "protagonist" correctly at 6:11.

IrishWhiskey - 2009-12-11

From the beginning, "Stroke Guy" had been a character. But damned if he isn't a good one. Unlike certain characters in... well...
you know.

Syd Midnight - 2009-12-11

"stroke guy" is a character, but his performance is perfect. He;s one of the best narrators ever.

fluffy - 2009-12-21

He also uses his actual voice when interviewing people about the old vs. new character traits.

The Mothership - 2009-12-10

Magisterial, it will stand the test of time.

Camonk - 2009-12-10

Listing Tarantino amongst actual, talented directors is like comparing a turd to creme brule. In this analogy, Tarantino is a turd. Also not in any analogies.

It almost invalidated this guy's opinions. ALMOST.

oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2009-12-11

Need a hug? I'm here.

BaconAficionado - 2009-12-11

C'mon, Tarantino is on there so Bruckheimer and Michael Bay don't have to be.

joelkazoo - 2009-12-11

Stars for Bacon!

boner - 2009-12-11

I hate popular things too! Let's be friends!

erection reset by queer - 2009-12-11

It seems more like a list of auteurs who make unconventional narratives than a value judgment. And if it was a value judgment, why didn't you have any problem with Wes Anderson's inclusion?

Also, don't you pretty much hate everything, Camonk?

Hooker - 2009-12-11

My opinions on art are STRONG.

poorwill - 2009-12-11

Real talk, poeTV: Wes Anderson is actually a good director (though I don't think he or Lynch belong on that list because they both are all about making relateable characters and throwing them into weird worlds). For all the rubber-stamp criticisms Anderson gets about being quirky and focussing on set design or whatever, his characters have pathos and he isn't disrespectful to them or anything like that. Save that type of shittalk for people like Tim Burton, Guillermo Del Toro, Spike Jonze or DUN DUN Terry Gilliam.

CornOnTheCabre - 2009-12-11

I think Anderson fell more into the "lack of single protagonist" camp than the "lack of relatable characters" camp.

Hooker - 2009-12-11

Leave Wes Anderson ALOOOOOONNEE!

poorwill - 2009-12-11


APE_GOD - 2010-01-26

Pay attention.

Those directors weren't grouped together because they are 'brilliant'.

They are all directors who either reject structuring their stories around a protagonist or build their protagonist in such a way that they do not play out as down on their luck underdogs that the audience can identify with.

That's all.

Chancho - 2009-12-11

People know better than to tell George Lucas he sucks. He doesn't take criticism well.

IrishWhiskey - 2009-12-11

"They'll get the girl in the end."

Wonka hugs Charlie.

Tuan Jim - 2009-12-11

I missed that.

Man, this is the greatest thing.

wtf japan - 2009-12-11

Yeah, that's what made this a five for me too.

Walker - 2009-12-12

5 stars just for that

Magical Man from Happy-Land - 2010-01-09

holy fucking shit wonka hugging charlie I just noticed that. fucking brilliant.

Hugo Gorilla - 2009-12-11

His basement tour in part two.

duck&cover - 2009-12-11

Jame Gumb at the movies.

Redlof - 2009-12-11

Oh god the slow build up in the basement

dododge - 2010-01-10

Yeah, if you stick with it at least up to the basement tour you _will_ end up watching all 7 parts. And remember, the blue can is the best one.

StanleyPain - 2009-12-11

This whole thing is fucking awesome. It's staggering what some people are doing on the internet for free.

Mister Yuck - 2009-12-11

Why are there seven parts?

Rape Van Winkle - 2009-12-11

Because that's how long it is, you dumb cunt.

CornOnTheCabre - 2009-12-11

I think I've excitedly waited for this more than any other video on the internet, and it somehow exceeded my astronomical expectations.

this review is now officially what I consider the first three episodes of Star Wars

glendower - 2009-12-11

Wow, this guy is great.

erection reset by queer - 2009-12-11

He put a lot of work into this one. Damn.

Ponasty - 2009-12-11

its sad that Lego StarWars 1-3 was better than the actual movies it is based on.

Mancakes - 2009-12-11

The fact that nobody could describe the characters really is this movie's second-greatest failing. That everybody can describe Jar-Jar is its greatest.

Mancakes - 2009-12-11

Oh, and what IS it with Ricks?

kennydra - 2009-12-11

Here I was thinking I had the perfect amount of time to watch this before getting ready to go to class, and come to find out it's in SEVEN PARTS?? And this is a REALLY WELL DONE REVIEW?!?! Oh no what am I going to do.

phalsebob - 2009-12-11

Part 2 is even better. I don't have time to watch all 7 now, but I'm sure as hell going to.

punch drunk babies - 2009-12-12

I'm at work! Night audit at a hotel! 7 parts is PERFECT

memedumpster - 2009-12-11

The lack of parts six and seven are torture. I watched this guys videos for four hours the last time I encountered them.

Tuan Jim - 2009-12-11

fuck, do they come out every week or something?

memedumpster - 2009-12-11

I don't know, man, I don't know! What are we gonna' do!? I'm itching and OH GOD THESE SPIDERS!!!

punch drunk babies - 2009-12-12

Here's 6

stage - 2009-12-12

Honestly, I've always believed that Jar Jar was the best character in Part One, its gay that morons always pick him as the scape goat for why Phantom Menace sucks.

memedumpster - 2009-12-12

George Lucas is why that movie sucked.

joelkazoo - 2009-12-12

Surrogate stars, meme!


Cleaner82 - 2009-12-12

I've never seen such a well-constructed and airtight case for the suckiness of this film.

longwinded - 2009-12-12

i'm not sure why i didn't watch this at first

Aubrey McFate - 2009-12-12

Part 7 is up. The ending is awesome.

punch drunk babies - 2009-12-13

why are the newer ones such a bitch to find?

erection reset by queer - 2009-12-13

Part 7 won't play for me. I am sad.

Jimmy Labatt - 2009-12-13

This is fucking brilliant

cognitivedissonance - 2009-12-13

Amazing. In every conceivable way.

Man Who Fights Like Woman - 2009-12-13

The ending of part six is downright eerie.

GlennFinito - 2009-12-14

I knew this was going to be special when he compared his disappointment over his son with his disappointment over this movie and concluded the movie was more so.

Man Who Fights Like Woman - 2009-12-16

I was reluctant to spend ten minutes watching this until I heard that line. The guy knows how to hook an audience.

Glenn or Glennda - 2009-12-15

From now on, NO ONE gets to write a screenplay without watching this.

craptacular - 2009-12-15

these are indeed awesome.
if anyone has trouble playing part 7 like i did, add this to the end of that video's url: "&fmt=18"

Dicknuts - 2009-12-17


RomancingTrain - 2009-12-17

He gave this movie far, far, far too much thought than it deserves.

chumbucket - 2009-12-18

I screw up mashed potatoes all the time

Tomas - 2009-12-30


Evilhead - 2010-01-04

LOL at 4:30 lower right.

RockBolt - 2010-01-18

Stars for everything, but especially all the behind the scenes footage of Lucas

RockBolt - 2010-02-16

Also, part 5 - 6:11

Nikon - 2010-04-05

I really liked that even though Phantom Menace is my favorite Star Wars live-action movie.

Xero - 2010-04-09

And another five stars to the one who can have George watch this entire review. I know it won't fix anything I just want to bring him pain.

badideasinaction - 2011-01-01

Coming in after the Episode 3 review went up. Apparently I forgot to 5 star this before. Correcting this oversight right now.

TheInternetisFullofGenitals - 2019-04-11

This video made me an RLM fan for life.
