RedLetterMedia's Revenge of Nadine [TPM 108 pg Resp. [RotS Review+RotS Preview+ST'09 Reveiw+Next Review Teaser+2002 Interview+AotC OutTakes+Noooooo! Doc.+SW Examiner Rebuttal+AotC Review+TPM Review]

Oh god do I really have to read through 108 pages of prequel apologist mumbo jumbo?

There's two main things I got from RLM's reviews:

1. He's a comedic reviewer. As such, he exaggerates his viewpoints for comedic effect. This is to be expected, guys like Nostalgia Critic do this too.

2. None of his nitpicks would matter at all if the story was better written, the films better directed, and if the characters were better acted and more compelling. This was made pretty clear by the end of his Ep3 review.

Maybe I'd have them watch some PT fan edits instead...

This is probably the route I'll take, although the concern is that the PT is so "pretty" and the OT so "ugly" that they'll hate the OT even if they see it first - unless they avoid the PT for at least a few years.

Well then obviously we need a fan edit that makes the PT look uglier.

 

...has that been done?
