The STAR TREK Review To End All STAR TREK Reviews

We already know that JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot from last year is pretty darn good, so no big shock there, but what is a surprise is that Harry Plinkett, the sociopathic movie critic alter ego of filmmaker Mike Stoklasa, enjoyed it quite a bit as well.  Stoklasa, you'll recall, built Plinkett's web rep with feature-length smackdowns of the first two Star Wars prequels that went viral pretty much the instant they went online.  While his disgust for those flicks was pretty tough to miss, it turns out that a Plinkett review can be just as funny, cogent, and thought-provoking when it's a movie he didn't hate.  Whether you liked or disliked (I know there's a few of you out there...) Abrams' Trek, this will make you look on it in a new way.  As is usual with these things though, be prepared to set aside a decent chunk of time to watch, as this one clocks in at over an hour.  Check 'em out after the jump.

Loved it. This guy's a lunatic, but, wow, his reviews are fascinating.
