Mr. Plinkett is a character created by Mike Stoklasa and Rich Evans of Red Letter Media. Mr. Plinkett is an old man (claiming to be born in 1906) suffering from polio and bordering on senility and psychosis.
Plinkett was originally played by Rich Evens in the Red Letter Media Short film The Cleaning Lady, in which Evans played dual roles as Plinkett and a deranged escaped mental patient who thinks he’s a janitor.
In 2008, Stoklasa made a review video for the 1994 film Star Trek Generations. He noted that he thought it was a “shitty movie” and “completely messed up the transition to the big screen from what was a really great TV show”, inspiring him to share this view with others. toklasa found his own voice to be too boring for the review and adopted the persona of Harry S. Plinkett, a character he had previously used in several short films and since further developed within the reviews.
The Phantom Menace Review
Stoklasa’s review of The Phantom Menace was published to YouTube on December 10, 2009, and quickly became popular, receiving over 4 million views since its release. In comparison to his earlier Star Trek movie reviews which lasted from 30 to 40 minutes, the Phantom Menace review was a 70-minute creation and was uploaded to YouTube in 7 parts. The review took between seven and ten days to complete.
Half in the Bag
In 2011, Stoklasa and his friend Jay Bauman started a movie review show on their website called Half in the Bag, in which they both play VCR repairmen sitting in Plinkett’s (played again by Rich Evans) living room as they discuss newly released movies, as well as some cult classics, comic book conventions, and other film projects they engage in. The first episode was a review of Drive Angry and The Adjustment Bureau, it was released on March 12th, 2011.
