Two thumbs up! The monkey song rules, and as you can see the movie is quoted in my signature! So that basically means 5. smile

dear god, I just watched this again, and I hurt from laughing.

Seriously Klut, you are a comedic genious. When I had to record the TV voice, I almost couldn't because of how effing funny it is. Phew.

5/5

I am totally obsessed with this movie. Klut you're a genius (and a deranged psychopath razz). Words cannot describe how funny and brilliant this is.

Hah, awesome. The monkey sex line was my personal favorite, delivered perfectly. Only complaint is on the technical side, some of the editing at the purposefully weird parts had background audio or something weird, but I liked the overall editing style. Cool visuals as well and you really pulled this off well. That was a pretty good British accent for not speaking English at all. I could never speak Norweigan or whatever the hell that was and pull off a good accent, impressive. smile 5/5 and congrats. Did you use the FXH from Archive.org's wayback machine? Reminded me of FSX. The dog idea was genius. The hair, when seeing it in motion was even better than the scitures you posted as previews. Didn't think it was possible, it was even somewhat arousing.

Oh, I must have pressed the wrong button when I rated the movie, I meant to rate it 5 but in some way I gave it 4. Can this be fixed?

Klut -

Well, I watched this movie a while ago and never got around to commenting about it. The first time I watched it I kinda got bored and didn't get it. After seeing such great reviews here, I rewatched it a few minutes ago and loved it.

I have no idea why.

You perfectly illustrated the point that you have no point. Perfect example of why movies don't have to have a message or a point. They can clearly state that they don't contain any form of intellectual viewpoint on society. I found myself laughing through mostly all of it.

Your homages to Fxhome in general were clever. The many Waser parodies and the afterward with the Fxhome team were fantastic. I knew that your title looked familiar! It's the same font as the American Idiots logos! Stealer. W/e, I don't care. I'm actually privleged to have my movies in someway related to your's.

So, to quote you about AI2... the same goes for Monkey Madness, (They do after all share a title font!)

"It would be idiotic of me to rate it less then 5/5… And I’m not any idioter then before, so there you go."

Bravo good sir, I'll be looking for more of your stuff

As I've stated before, in messaging you and in the fanfilm competition thread, this wasn't exactly my cup of tea. The humor didn't really stick for me (too fast and slapstick, or something-I'm more of a britcom-style-comedy fan), and meh, it wasn't technically that great, but it shows an awful ammount of enthusiasm, and for that I applaud you. Being an editor before anything else, I'm a big stickler for editing, so I subconsciously immediately pull a video down for loose or sloppy editing, and the editing on 'MM' was pretty loose, so..........meh.

However, this shows quite a dedication to an idea, and that you executed it in the way you probably imagined deserves praise.

It's all inside jokes which may be good for friends who watch the film. But other people (who make up the majority) is really what counts if you want to go somewhere with cinematography.

I have never met Klut.

He doesn't necesarily want to go anywhere with cinematography... he want's to go somewhere in film.

In the context I used it, I meant the same thing. Strange response.
