Although i admire your stubborn refusal to see your films for what they are, i feel compelled to say *something* deconstructive about this, if simply to satiate the burning rage that fills me as a result of this clip.

This post used to be about 57 times worse than this new version, but i've toned it down.

"Why?!" Thats all i have to say. (now.)

I'm giving it 1 star, because it isn't bad enough to go into Hutchinson's under the entry for "dire", but it isn't exactly great either. It doesn't achieve anything, break any new ground, show any good film-making ability or even that great a use of AlamDV. At least i'm explaining why i'm rating it so.

Before I watch it I just want to say change the thumbnail pic. It has nothing to do with your movie. If all of yours are going to have that pic, it gets confusing.

EDIT: Just saw the "movie" and all I saw was a guy swinging a saber like a maniac. wink I give it a one, because lightsbers are pretty time consuming.

Are you serious. You acually wanted people to see this nonsense? Sorry but I think you are aiming to get a lower rating than that old resident evil movie that was posted here forever ago. And you may very well succeed thanx to this zero I'm giving you. You earned it becuase of the horrible compression, sad excuses for swinging a saber, only one shot of this attack on a kid with a sword, and the ordacity to say thank you at the end. What are you thanking us for, trashing this thing? I tried not to stop doing things like this to people, but this belongs in the Alam DV vault of stupidity.

PEACE OUT

I'm sorry but that was even more retarded than star wars kid. And twice as terrible. I dont want to tell you to stop making movies. Never let anyone tell you that. But next time, include a plot (for all our sakes), use a different thumbnail (one that actually remotely has something to do with the film), include more than one angle, tween your laser blasts, and dont say thankyou, because you should be saying "you are stupid for watching this".

Heh, Marek.

Darth Paul is still living in AlamDV 1 days. I am so bad at stuff frame by frame. Its easier and better through tweening.

I forgot you were the person who made that Bio Hazard Trailer... anyways, this was.. well.. i dont really get why you would post it. Maybe your cousins like reading the posts of people making fun of this movie? Cuz other than that, I dont really understand why they wanted u to post this. Im not saying this to be mean.. but.. it seems like maybe this film thing is all a joke to you. You post movies that have been made fun of before again and you post movies that arent that much progress from your other ones. Im starting to think that your posting weak movies for fun. If not then I just understand why you post some of this stuff you do... Like i said, im not trying to be mean, im just trying to figure out why... Anyways, im done *leaves the computer and waits for the -1's that he'll probaly get confused *

Yes... I am really thinking now that the only reason you post anything on here is as a joke and that you're meaning these to be bad and you don't care what people say.... Although... maybe not.

Aight, well i was gearing up to say "dude please no more nonsense" However i thought i would watch it first, don't ask me why because firstly that bio hazard thing was discraceful, however it was not half bad, i would at least give you a 3 for it. I mean it was quite manic, But i think for a good reason, i mean it was quite well animated and i mean compared to that thing you call a trailer (short and dumbing movie) i could say as a test youre skills are improving.

Im not quiet sure why people would class this worse then bio, becasue frankly it isnt! A: its shorter and B: the effects are smoother and don't look to bad.

It just might be, that there used to saying you stink so its a reaction thing, but i think they should take another look at this and make an opinion from you're last posts and i think they can tell you are getting better, so pleaaassseeeee do more stuff like this, to gain some skill level!

Duel saber stunt test??? Do you even know what that makes the viewer think? And I agree that the thumbnail has nothing to do with the actual movies. What am I saying? Movies?
