*This is a re-issue of a movie that was in the cinema a while ago. The server was down before and now I can do my own. So there we go.*

A short about a simple trip to the local cafe gone terribly wrong... but so right!

That movie (or should I say 'one click of the record button') was pointless. The camera work almost made me throw up and the acting made me feel sorry for you. I don't know, maybe try more than one take?
2 stars from me just because you obviously did that scene in front of people you didn't know and that takes guts. No hard feelings biggrin

Not at all, Mark. I understand that the movie is pointless. That's it's intent. I just hope you're not saying these things in retaliation for comments I made about a certain movie of yours...

And we did do more than one take. 3 actually.

I had never seen this movie before...I laughed out loud twice watching. it and that is an achievement...The audio was crap for the most part...and the shot of the 2 cafe employees would have been better if the guy wasn't a bad actor and didn't sound so matter of fact...Well shot and extremely funny 4 stars...

Don't even call that guy an actor. He's a moron and I hate him. Those two were employees there at the time, and they were the only ones who'd do it. Actor... PSH!

I didn't say those because of what you said.

You obviously put submitted your film so people could review it. I reviewed it. If it was meant to be pointless you could of named it, oh I don't know...maybe 'What a pointless mess'.

My name's not Mark. I hate my login name. It was some guy I worked with that let me use his credit card to buy Alam. Maybe I should look into changing it....hmmmm

anyways. later!

I appreciate your review, Not Mark. And I'm glad you're not just retaliating. If a film's name always described what the film is like, we'd have movies called "Action Movie With Cheesy Dialogue!". I think the title is fine. Sorry you didn't enjoy it. I'll try harder to please you next time. wink

Nice! Great video quality. Liked the out of no-wear gun shot. Ending could have been a little more humourous. Overall good job. 4 1/2

It looked like a bit a fun and not seemingly didn't look like too much planning went into it. You coulda put more thought into and actually made a decent script/plot out of the random gun firing.

Just an excuse to fire a gun?
Look forward to what you do next though. Potential is there smile

We dreamed it up about 2 hours before shooting. It was a spur of the moment thing.

I think thats the first time a film here has genuinely made me laugh out loud. The over dramatic music as he drops the gun and stumbles away before being scratched out as he comes back to pick it up again...wonderful.

Why thank you, fight. I'm glad everyone's liking it for the most part. And I'm glad I'm making y'all laugh. That's the intent. We always figure no one else thinks our senses of humour are funny because they're downright wierd... But I guess we've been wrong all along.

haha wtf? watch 90% of the rest of the movies on here and see all the gunplay. Not all of my movies have guns in them, just the ones I post here, and I post them here for that reason. That's what people use the software for. Get over it.

If you look in my profile, it'll tell you what kind of camera I use.
