Harry Plinkett Releases His Long-Awaited Force Awakens Review
If you (like us) are huge Star Wars nerds, you know the name Harry Plinkett.

If you don't, Plinkett is kind of hard to explain. The short version is that he's a fictional armchair film critic on YouTube with a comically droning, annoying voice who is obsessed with three things: Star Wars, pizza rolls, and being a serial killer. Think of it as Mystery Science Theater 3000 with a murderer. His hour-long, multi-part reviews of the Star Wars prequels made him a legend by proving once and for all that they were towering failures, but over time the reviews evolved into mini-movies of their own, with their own canon and in-jokes, and the dysfunctional, psychopathic Plinkett as the main character.

Plinkett's reviews are known to be part in-depth, humorous criticism, part DIY horror film, and sometimes even end with poignant recitations of classic poetry. No matter how weird or offensive he gets, though, Plinkett never loses sight of the goal: reminding people what make movies (especially Star Wars) special. More than anyone else, he sums up with clarity and honesty what a lot of Star Wars fans feel about the franchise they love most. The fact that all of this comes from the mouth of a wheelchair-bound serial killer who never leaves his house only adds to the charm.

So naturally Star Wars fans from across the internet got wide-eyed with excitement and trepidation last night when they found out Plinkett had released his new review of The Force Awakens, something he's ostensibly been preparing for since November 2014. In the less than 24 hours since its release, the video has almost half a million views, and now you can watch it below.

In it, Plinkett covers more than just The Force Awakens—he talks about Star Wars' purchase by Disney, the Star Wars Ring Theory, and the recent surge of people trying to argue the prequels weren't all bad. So strap in and heat up those pizza rolls.



Harry Plinkett has already completed his reviews for The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. If you haven't watched them, now's the time.
