- Crazy Awesome: Despite sounding like a stroke victim with a mouthful of Big League Chew, Plinkett still manages to formulate brilliant, coherent, and often flawless arguments against the movies he reviews. He has an unerring eye for plot holes, Out of Character moments, character flaws, and deducing the overall coherence of a movie's plot. He's also killed at least a dozen women and several Koreans through various methods, including meat cleaver, slit wrists, pushing them down a well, vehicular manslaughter, and Raid (six cans of the fast kill low irritant kind; it's in the blue bottle, it works the best). He also has yet to deliver me my Pizza Roll for editing this page!
- He also can put out some good vocal imitations, including an unnervingly close impression of Darth Sidious's voice.
"I don't jump sharks. I fuck them for breakfast."
- Complete Monster: What Harry would be if he were real, especially taking the following into consideration:
(to Nadine the Hooker in Attack of the Clones review) "Baby? Well, it's been three days now. (Scary Voice) I'm afraid your baby's with the angels."
(to Nadine the Hooker in Baby's Day Out review) "Say... How's that baby of yours?"
- Crosses the Line Twice: Pretty much every single thing Plinkett says that is not Star Wars, Star Trek, or Avatar related falls directly under this category.
- Plinkett destroying his TV while watching an Olsen Twins movie deserves special mention. The specifics of that incident will give you nightmares.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Tell me you don't nod your head to the hip-hop song at the end of his reviews.
"I squeeze gats till my clips is spent . . ."
- Dude, Not Funny: The masturbation scene near the beginning of the "Crystal Skull" review; the main problem was that it showed actual footage of the (then-preadolescent) Olsen twins while Plinkett (graphically) jacked off to them.
- Crosses the Line Twice. And it happens. Often.
- Fridge Horror: In the Star Trek: 2009 review, it is heavily implied that his "cat" is really one of Plinkett's former wives whom he killed. Rewind to the Episode 2 review. "Wanna help me milk my cat? It's time to make breakfast." *shudder*
- We see it in the episode 3 review, it is just a cat. A cat that's been dead a while, via him shoving it into a Microwave during Thanksgiving, but a cat nonetheless. Though it's possible that we're seeing the cat from Plinkett's eyes...
- Fridge Logic: Plinkett's biggest issue with the prequels.
- Danes Love Mr. Plinkett: Mike Stoklasa was invited to a Danish film festival, where the famous 70-minute Phantom Menace review was shown in full (along with the Cop Dog review as a warm-up). This was his first convention appearance outside of North America. The showing was sold out, and mostly attended by those who had already seen the review; this is in contrast to showings at American conventions, where only a handful of people attend.
- Growing the Beard: Take a look at Mr. Plinkett's TNG movie reviews, and you'll find that they weren't all the crisp, rapidfire, colorful comedic potpourri that we recognize today. The initial reviews contain less music, less outside sources, less visual humor, and less glances into Mr. Plinkett's life. As the reviews increased in size, they became more crisply coordinated and colorful; the Nemesis review was very near to the recognizable style of the present. It was the Phantom Menace review that firmly established Plinkett's style as a strangely beautiful arrangement of comedy, photo, and film that is efficiently delivered in a neat package of absurdity.
- Ham and Cheese: The one thing in Revenge of the Sith that Plinkett says he likes is Ian McDiarmid's Palpatine -- just because Ian is clearly having the time of his life.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: It was revealed that Lucas did want a young Han Solo scene in Revenge of the Sith.
- Hypocritical Humor: In their review of Jack And Jill, Mike and Jay criticize Adam Sandler's reliance on "people falling down" humor. Rather hypocritical, considering that gratuitous slapstick has been something of a running gag in their work...
- Idiot Plot: A major part of why Plinkett becomes angry to the point of murderous rage - and arguably why he has a penchant for butchering hookers - is that not only are the characters in the Star Wars Prequels "flat and uninteresting" but they're also Too Dumb to Live on a galactic scale. A grand hall, full of thousands of delegates listen to a megalomaniacal speech from Palpatine, an obvious despot, yet no-one seems to notice even when he starts ranting about genocide of the Jedis? Not even Anakin (supposedly full of midichlorians which presumably enhance his perception) during a private meeting, where Palpatine mentions that the Sith and the Jedi are quite alike while a klaxon Red Alert blares out in the background.
- PALPATINE'S BEHIND IT ALL!
- It's Not Supposed to Win Oscars: Plinkett argues (pretty convincingly) that 2009's Star Trek, despite its somewhat-dodgy plot and its loose adherance to the Star Trek ethos, works brilliantly at exactly what it set out to be: a compelling action-adventure film precisely calculated to make as much money as possible. And saving the franchise.
- Memetic Mutation: "What's wrong with your FAAAACE?!" Catch Phrase has been referenced in Atop the Fourth Wall and The Spoony Experiment among others.
- "[Insert work here] was the most disappointing thing since my son" seems to be making this headway as well.
- Nightmare Fuel:
- Special Effect Failure:
- Plinkett argues that the original Star Wars trilogy benefited from the limitations faced with practical special effects, which includes the problems Lucas faced during production because of using practical effects. He has a particular hatred for the overuse of the lightsaber effects in the prequel movies, seeing as how they were much easier to produce than they were during the production of the original trilogy.
"Like anything that's cool, if it's used too much it becomes boring. 'Cept for cocaine. [Inhales deeply] "
- Parodied near the end of the Episode III review when he claims that the CGI took a drop in quality for the climatic fight, when he's showing the basic CGI outlines/paths.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks:
- Played for Laughs "Cuz I don't like things that are different".
- Sadly, played straight with the comments for the Revenge of Nadine video, which were particularly brutal towards Rich Evans as Mr. Plinkett for not "sounding right" (despite Evans being the one who originated the character in the first place).
- What Do You Mean It's Not Didactic?: The infamous 107 page response to Plinkett's Phantom Menace review by a Prequel fan.
