Star Wars YouTube Battle


A 70-minute-long, manic, brutally critical review of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace has become an improbable YouTube sensation. Benjamin Sarlin talks to the film's creator.

While Avatar may represent the future of filmmaking, a current Star Wars-related Internet phenomenon signifies how the Aughts DIY mashup approach has changed popular culture.

On paper, the viral video making the rounds recently is bizarre even by Internet standards: a 70-minute review of 1999's Star Wars: The Phantom Menace delivered by an elderly schizophrenic who talks like a cross between Dan Aykroyd in The Blues Brothers and The Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill.

1. The review is by RedLetterMedia, and he does reviews of the recent Star Trek movies too.
He rips apart Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis. All his videos are on YouTube.

I'm not a fan of his serial killer jokes, but he does make valid points about all of these movies.
