Many people believe that this is indeed the greatest movie ever made. Took ages to produce, special effects are totally amazing. The message is hard hitting and has brought grown men to tears. Grap your popcorn, sit back and enjoy.

My 2 cents :

Don't you think you should spend your spare time doing stuff for the movie you're talking to us since ages instead of loosing time with that kind of tests...?!?

No ?

Well, the light ball start to shrink too fast before you try to eat it.

Should I spend my spare time doing stuff for Obliteration? Yeah, but I dont have the software right now to do it (it got deleted too) and when i re-download premiere im getting corrupt zip file errors. mad But enough talk about that!

Test!? evil That isnt a test! Its the greatest movie ever made! lol Everyone else with tase thinks so!! I sense much jealousy in you my Anonymous companion! razz Even Sollthar has ADMITTED personally to me that "The Greatest Movie Ever Made" is better than the current Alam Dv cinema number 1 film "The Test". Go ahead! Ask him! biggrin

And regarding the light ball shrinking too fast, I wanted it to schrink at that speed so that what was about to happen wasnt obvious! If i had wanted it slower - i would have made it slower!!!!! biggrin

I haven't seen it yet, however any film called "The greatest movie ever made" can't be that good.

I figured it out!
I know how he did that "light" effect, that looked so good!...

First he took a flashlight and pulled it under a pillow so it get's diffused.
Then he captured a motion infront of a blue screen with a fish wire!

Then he recorded the "actual film" AND IT WASENT EVEN A LIGHT THERE FROM THE BIGINING!
Then he used After Effects and keyed out the blue screen... and Viaola!

There you got it!

WouldntYouLikeToKnow Posted: 09 Sep 2002 22:24
This has got to be "The Stupidiest Movie Ever Made!"
which refers to "The Greatest Movie Ever Made"

"Wouldn'tYouLikeToKnow" can you please make up your mind!?!?! razz

PS! I think in 14 hours, 116 downloads is a not bad achievement for a few minutes work! Told ya it was "The Greatest Movie Ever Made!" biggrin

It's ok, i had my first video lesson at college. I made the worst film i've ever made. I've been making films for 2 years. My good films are only seen by about 3 people. I made an unbelieveably bad film which 20 people saw. They told me to make a film about a murder, with only 3 shots, I wasn't allowed to take the cam of the tripod, so there was almost no movement, worst of all I had to start recording at the same time as the action started, I wasn't allowed to use pre-roll and the camera started too late, so you missed what happened. and the point of all this inane drivel. everyone makes bad films. no matter how good they really are.

Oh and "Two_Gunned saint", I hope you were not hinting that any of my films were bad by that wee comment!!!!

Cheers Sollthar for the kind words smile

The initial large number of downloads shocked me a bit. I (obviously) put very little effort into this film and although most people think its quite funny, I wonder what was the real reason for the popularity. confused

The intention was to create a film that is so ludicrusly rubbish, that it was humourous - a combination usually achieved unintentionally in the cinema! razz

Mayabe its the title?! cause its such a small file?! cause I made it? cause its ludicrus comedy?....or maybe cause it is has indeed gained a reputation as "The Greatest Movie Ever Made". lol Or maybe its cause of some other reason that I have missed.

Now that the orijinal Jeenious has Alam Dv 2, all I need is webspace and there could be plenty more of Jeenious Style nonsense coming your way! twisted

Anyway - Im glad you like my first insane film and I hope you all enjoy the sequel. wink

Who the hell is this Donny Darko???? Over the course of about 5 minutes I've found two rather unpleasent comments he's posted. I hope he's a mate of yours just mucking around and not being serious. Otherwise he's a Dickhead.
