  • A review of Snitches Get Bullets
    by JustinDec on 02/19/2014
    "Snitches Get Bullets" feels like it merely exists to mimic the works of filmmakers Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino. Because of this, it desperately lacks it's own voice. Each scene feels disconnected from the next, forming a series of vignettes about a character we know nothing about except for what we're given in the synopsis. By the time the end credits roll, you realize... read
  • A review of Still Falls the Rain
    by JustinDec on 02/19/2014
    "Still Falls the Rain" serves as a great showreel for director Miguel Santana's talent as a VFX artist, but it lacks the emotional punch that it desperately wants you to feel as both the story and performances suffer under the film's one note premise. Mr. Santana shows a great talent for his VFX work, but without a compelling story, they are merely polished images peppered... read

    Open mike and out comes a story of a real antihero. The story is dark, modern and sad. The speaker saves the day by giving a ODing druggie mouth-to-mouth. The speaker has many reservations about giving mouth-to-mouth but gives in because that is who he is, the guy who has saved this guy before. The speaker gives his mouth to mouth and the medics get there and totally revive... read
  • A review of Scene from Macbeth
    by EugyBizzaro on 02/19/2014
    This internet post version of Macbeth is dark and haunting. The acting is superb. Macbeth plots and mulls over his tactics and dark visions of his plans. This is an actors piece and Max Hunt is great in this piece. He has a good flow of diction in his plans of horror. As he handles the knife in the stark minimal set, the candles flicker as he sharpens his blade with a stone... read

    by Frankvespe on 02/19/2014
    This short was a well acted piece, although too may editors and directors for some unknown reason believe a lot of nonsensical cuts makes for a better film eludes me, just makes for a more nonsensical amateurish film. Black and white was a wise choice, and it reminds me of the pathos of a homeless person in the bowls of New York City who was once a great actor, but his life... read
  • A review of April Dreams
    by BUNKER on 02/18/2014
    I really liked the concept of this story. For the most part I thought it was well shot, the acting was a little iffy at times, but all and all this was a good piece. My only real issue is that I would have rather of had to discover the story and not have it spelt out for me. I like the question of who's actually dreaming of who, or are these two sharing a dream, but it lost... read
  • A review of Off Limits

    A somewhat implausible plot - would a waiter really have a fling with a mobster's girl? They're jealous by nature, so it seems kinda stupid to me. The dialogue and acting were quite stilted in places. The characters were straight out of Casting Central. There weren't any lines that really stuck me as unexpected or impactful. There have been so many mob feature movies with a... read

    I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and Max did a nice read. He was suitably wild-looking for an ancient Scottish king, but honest, could you nae find him a proper kilt, man? The beige skirtey thing looked a little odd. Unusual setting with all the peeling paint and graffiti, but quite effective. Not really enough in it though to get a vote for festival submission from me.
  • A review of Finding the Words
    by BUNKER on 02/18/2014
    I really liked this, very well shot, nice and short, the perfect length for the internet. I really enjoyed watching the build up. If anything I would have liked to have seen it end with the same results minus any dialog. It kind of felt like the dialog made it a little too on the nose and could have been expressed through actions. It would be a little different if maybe the... read
  • A review of Noir
    by BUNKER on 02/18/2014
    I'm having a hard time coming up with anything to say about this one. I liked it. I thought it was well shot, good pacing and pretty fun. It was interesting to see that old school humor performed by such young actors. Good luck with this and any of your future projects.

    Let me start by saying that I found this interesting. One of my good friends is a vet tech so I found this to be a cool way to see a visual example of what she does in a day. I feel this is a good piece of marketing or a great tool to share with new clients. When I review shorts I think to myself whether or not I would accept them into a festival, and even though I thought... read

    by JITofe on 02/18/2014
    A bag full of… past, fear, mistakes, nothing? Who knows. Everyone carry whith one of them. Everyone try to go along the life trying to maintain this bag under control. Sometimes you can’t bear the bag’s weight but you’re not able to open the bag, look inside, and throw away some things. The past, the fear, the thoughts, everything is in this bag. You need the bag, or maybe... read

    VAMPZ! Episode 1: I Am a Vampire, Duh! is a short film that makes more fun out of itself than the (comedy, mystery/suspense) genre that it pretends to be. Spoofs can be really good and they can be extremely bad, but this one has a charm that puts it in-between. The script itself doesn't give the actors enough structure to create proper comical timing and the actors are slightly... read
  • A review of A Random Chase
    by Daniel Broadhurst on 02/17/2014
    I love art pieces. I love visuals that capture moments. I love the way anyone today can pick up a camera and shoot. But in 'A Random Chase' there are a few things I do not love. For example: I consider lighting and sound to be as, if not more important to the film than just a simple narrative. A better and more suitable location could have help this piece to be a little more... read
  • A review of The Blind
    by BUNKER on 02/17/2014
    I'm not sure if I get it, but I did like it. I found myself laughing out loud when he seemed to be taunting himself. There was a parallel universe thing going on right? Well done. It's always fun to see content that's actually entertaining that was made with limited resources.
