I'm not trying to be an ass, I'm honestly curious (I like lots of nerdy stuff, just not this). What do you guys think is so funny about his reviews? Do you need to love shows like How I Met Your Mother, and that sort of geek humor, to like this?
I think the problem (or just something you have to get used to) is the guy's use of a funny voice. I had a buddy watch the first part and he just couldn't get past his pseudo-retarded slow voice. When I watched the Ep1 review, I was like WTF? at first but if you just give it a chance, you can tell the guy definitely knows what he's talking about.
If you watch any of the 3 parts, watch the third one. To me, that is the most damning and well made. Say what you want about the story line, plot holes, and use of special effects.....the part that really hits home, IMO, is when he points out just how poorly the lazily the movies are FILMED and WRITTEN. When he points out just how often people are talking while walking or sitting on a couch, it becomes so blatantly obvious how LAZY George Lucas was throughout the process.
Like he said, the prequels could definitely have worked as a character piece if George Lucas had any clue how to write a character piece.
