RED LETTER MEDIA RUNDOWN RECENT COMIC-CON TRAILERS SO YOU WON’T HAVE TO! As always: see the original and best viral YouTube content critics at work..

by James Murphy

RED LETTER MEDIA are STILL the Masters of Online Film Criticism with a Comedic Twist.

 

 

A potted Film-School Class, via some edgy, post-modern satire and character comedy. They practically invented the art of the YouTube Video Essay. Despite occasional setbacks (Plinkett out of action too long; tendency to troll their own fans as with the Last Jedi review; overdoing the Nerd Crew anti-fan boy agenda); these guys are still the gold standard. Relentlessly copied but never truly equalled or bettered in balancing genuine insight with an anarchic take-down of the over-earnest corporate branding empires. 

Anyway: Turns out Red Letter Media have been getting a LOT of setbacks this past week with YouTube algorithmic blocks of all sorts. YouTube: SORT THIS OUT~! Pronto. Yesterday. You owe Plinkett and co a GREAT deal, given that their viral videos such as THOSE prequel reviews launched the whole sub-culture of YouTube essayists /satirists etc. Revenue for them is by extension, in the bigger picture: consolidation of power for YOU. 

We hope the problem is resolved. Because the boys are back to their best and this rundown of the recent Comic Con trailers is a case in point. Star Trek:Discovery, TITANS (‘FUCK BATMAN’), Aquaman, Godzilla:King of Monsters etc. 

So: sit back / download / listen/watch and get the best digest of the recent trailers..
