If only we'd gotten that time travel plot with the Palpatine worshipping instead of the movie we actually got.A man can dream though. A man can dream.
JJ Abrams "very good at pacing" didn''t pan out, did it?
15:24 Lol no
that stupid fucking time travel plot would have unironically been better than what we got
7:03 and Rich was a 100% right
Sigh...these ideas are all 100x better than what Disney put into this movie!
Ewok death cult would have been amazing!

Star Wars is dead to me..... Red Letter Media killed it
And somehow the time travel plot would have made more sense....
7:17 This was the most accurate prediction about the movie.
Honestly with better writing star wars could be amazing with new movies
What's the end song?
Damn you for pitching a far superior film about Palpatine's Ewok death cult.
They were so innocent. They didnt even predict the 10,000 star destroys coming out of the ground from a mystery red plasma planet universe with snokes bros in an aquarium hidden in a lightning giant statue land with palpy on strings
I can't believe Mike's terrible awful theory had fewer plot holes than the actual movie.
Rey's story arc was with Kylo. They could have fought at the end. Luke's story arc involved The Emporer, and they could have fought at the end. That wouldn't have taken away from Rey. The movie actually takes away from Luke.
Mike's impression of Palpatine is fucking great.
Holy shit did Rich's laugh turn into the Emperor's cackle at 19:24 or is that just a subversion of my expectations
Mike's time theory would've been so much more exciting.
It's sad because the predictions about Luke coming back and beating Palpatine is better than what actually happened
but how would Rey, the most adored and cared-about protagonist in all of cinematic history, not save the day?
so in retrospective, ANY of your theorires turned out to be way too smart for disney. Sorry guys but if you want to think like JJ, you have to be really shitfaced when you do these prediction videos.
I come back to this video for that moment at 7.15Should be required watching for actors who want to know how to portray that moment when someone realises, and must come to terms, with a great and horrible truth.The zoom in. The dramatic paper fold. The sheer range of emotions processed and portrayed in those two short lines."This movie is going to be awful!"
It is amazing that Mike points out all of the things that are back from the past for no reason therefore it must be time travel. But no... it was a force even greater than Time Travel.... Nostalgic Marketing...
What happened to c3po's red arm?
It still BLOWS my mind that there was no plan. How do you spend 4 billion dollars and then just wing it?
The sad part is the fan base STILL WATCHES! Rise of Skywalker is close to breaking 1 billion world wide after less than a month. Why bother having a plan when you can make billions winging it? Fans still see these things four or five times because "ma childhood!". Disney isn't looking to create art or a lasting legacy, they are looking to recoup that 4 billions as quickly as possible. Frankly, I would have much rather seen the time travel idea Mike had.
I think there gona' take you back to the past to re-play some shitty Star Wars fanfic that sucks ass.
Rich is wearing the same shirt here as in his Half in the Bag review of RoS. Continuity expert? Or Lazy fuck?
17:09 Holy shit. RLM called it: They brought Palpatine back.
32:09 Never tell me the odds
paraphrased: "What would be fun but you don't have to thin about the ramifications later?" Nailed.
How it is possible that the actual plot was worse than the time travel theory?
You underestimate the power of the Dark Side.
„I dont like it... I dont like any of this“
It's sad that this would have been better..
Its almost sad that the 'lets just make up random garbage' bit at the end turns out to be the most accurate to what happened.
At this point i wish the could have gone with the time travel
That mock story you came up with is actually better than what they actually made!
I like how the time travel theory made relatively better sense then what they actually did
No proof of course, but I feel Red Letter Media did have a large influence on the whole Sequel Trilogy. Mike Stocklasa recommended JJ Abrams in his viral Plinkett videos, which would have caught the attention of Disney executives at Lucas Film, convincing them to hire JJ Abrams for the the Force awakens. We know that Rian Johnson watched Red Letter Media, and very likely saw the subsequent Plinkett material and RLM content about The Force Awakens. Red Letter Media’s criticism of The Force Awakens as a fan-serviced, soft reboot must have influenced Rian Johnson’s decision to subvert expectations. In the Plinkett review of the Last Jedi, Plinkett refers to Rian as his son. Finally with the Rise of Skywalker JJ Abrams attempts to correct the wrongs of Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi by any means necessary or possible. JayBauman’s observation that the Last Jedi disregards all that proceeds it in the previous movie and that the Rise of Skywalker largely does the same highlights the lack of cohesion of the sequel trilogy. I’m sure some people love the Sequel Trilogy and I think those people have a lot to thank Red Letter Media for. Having said that Mike Stocklasa and Red Letter Media had no direct influence over Lucas Film or Disney whatsoever. Disney and Lucas Film made those creative decisions by themselves.
So what I got from all this since 2015 is a recommendation to watch “The Good Marriage”. I’ll watch it. I guess this is some irony or poetic justice like the end of End Game intended.
I went in with my expectations on the floor and managed to have a pretty good time.
I only come back here for 31:38
Wait they put the fucking chewie medallion in the teaser
Just hire the hack frauds to put together the next trilogy.Help us, RLM. You're Disney's only hope.
They definitely time traveled back to Return of the Jedi
Watching this after ROS's release, reveals that Rich "Nostradamus" Evans was dead-on with his prediction: "This is going to be terrible."
It was worse than all their predictions.
7:13 He called it.
nothing in these predictions was nearly as stupid as the actual movie, even all the time travel bs
20:43 Rich the secret owner of Disney stealing ideas from better minds cought of film.
RoS filming ended in February 2019. Then this video comes out. Then we hear they are doing reshoots....
Rich’s laugh is fucking ethereal
I've heard Rich's laugh described by many people, but that's the best most accurate way I've heard it described lol.
Wait, so did JJ write a Spiderman comic or what?
Time travel would honestly have been better, because none of the hints, none of them, were paid off. Deflector dish, etc. :(
Consistent plot twist: Every one of their terrible predictions that ISN'T true, for the whole trilogy, is still better than what actually happens. They really ought to hire them to write a screenplay. Not even kidding.
Rich did not predict that he would be wearing the same shirt 5 months later.
Everybody else did though.
Who knew that that bottomless shaft Vader threw Palpatine into had a massive trampoline at the bottom of it?
10:01 - Accurate prediction!! Points!13:16 - ... if only! 😢14:45 - That’s better than what we got.We got Death Star #4, the fleet of Death Stars! 🤦🏻♂️30:45 - There can be only the one!32:07 - Spot-on again!“Rey, I am your grand father!”“Search your feelings! You know it to be true!”
