“Attack of the clones is the worst thing ever made by a human”

In the field of criticism, there are a few works that are noted for completely and utterly destroying their subjects. Take, for example, Leszek Kolakowski’s massive three-volume Main Currents of Marxism, which dismantled all of the philosophical underpinnings of Marxism, or Whittaker Chamber’s review of Atlas Shrugged. (For the rest of her life following the review, Ayn Rand would reportedly storm out of a room if William F. Buckley, who published Chamber’s review, entered it.)

To the list, I propose to add this 9-part evisceration of Star Wars: Episode Two. Clocking in at nearly 90 minutes total, the review makes a compelling case for Attack of the Clones being one of the worst, most incoherent pieces of trash, especially relative to the original trilogy, ever foisted on the movie-going public. I was going to post part one here, but it’s already been removed for some copyright issue. Here’s part two:

This guy also did a similar 7-part review of Episode One, which, taken together, is probably one of the most devastating, thorough and hilarious critiques of a film director I’ve ever seen.

    I like that this video sounds like it’s narrated by Richard Nixon.
