Mike Stoklasa is a director, actor, and creator of RedLetterMedia. He is best known for The Phantom Menace Review (2009), Attack of the Clones Review (2010) and Revenge of the Sith Review (2010).

RedLetterMedia is a film/video production company operated by independent filmmakers Mike Stoklasa and Jay Bauman.

Stoklasa has produced other works under the RedLetterMedia banner, including short comedies and web series like The Grabowskis (2007) and several review-based web series including Half in the Bag (2011), Best of the Worst (2013) and re: View (2016).

Stoklasa created his first video review for Star Trek Generations after watching the film again some time in 2008. 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. Stoklasa 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 (originally played by Rich Evans and since further developed within the reviews.
