Funny??!!? Funny?!?!?! What are you high or something!?? To put it bluntly and plainly, that was retarded. I don't mean to be mean or hurt anyone's feelings, I'm just being honest. You could have at least put Half-life music in it.

Framen, you obviously don't get Aculag's humor. If he put in HL style music it would've ruined the comedy.

Now THIS is funny. I love how easy it is to spot new people, not by their reg dates, but by how they react to certain people's movies. Stick around for a while, Framen, maybe you'll understand one day. Maybe not though. And yes, I am high.

*inspired to make an HL2 movie that mainly consists of 1st person view much like DOOM did*

Hilarious, Aculag.

I do now see what you mean. I seems to have an honest opinon, you get negaitive ratings. So thank you for not rating me down for that. I was definetly over-reacting just mainly for laughs. biggrin I'm sorry I really didn't think it was funny, I mean you hitting a tree with a wrench...it just didn't do for me. Good luck with future films and all. biggrin

Framen, I'd suggest you watch Aculag's "Hannigan Road", it's well filmed, well edited, and HILARIOUS.

Lol, it wasn't. God, I must say that was pretty freaking funny.

Um....

I guess I didn't understand the joke of the movie, and thus, my opinion of the movie (dumb) will brand me as a new user, who obviously doesn't get the inside jokes or.... um... whatever that was. Cool effect when you hit the tree.....

....but um....

....otherwise, I'd have to say that the zealous nature of the replies is... er... at first glance, drug-induced. But that's just my honest opinion. I must clearly be a new user who fails to grasp the intimate and underlying sophisticated humor in this thirty-nine second invasion of my hard disk platter.

Well it was a cool effect to be an FPS. But if you made it into a film, doesnt matter what subject or setting, it would be pretty good! Just dont get the actors shoulder or head in the view!

It seems like the actor didnt know what to do with his hand really...

Actually, he meant to do this. In most FPS's, if you dont use your weapon, the player starts to twist/twirl with his gadget. This is still one of my favorites.

Actually, the actor was just mimicking the hand movements from Blue Shift, I think it was. Whichever one the guy used a wrench in.

I can't believe people are still watching this movie. smile

There are better methods of doing first person view that aren't that expensive. It started out good but began to slip.

Personally I would have had a crowbar.

This is a movie that needs to be made both low budget and Hollywood.

Overall: Good

What are you talking about? We spent SO MUCH money on this movie, OH MY GOD. wink

Actually, I think in the first post, I let people in on the fact that in real life, Gordon used a wrench.
