WEBMASTER’S REVIEW :: WARNING — POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Well, it’s about time..I finally watched the movie!

In short, I can find no reason in the world that this movie didn’t find a major distributor. The plot was intriguing, fun and even a little thought-provoking; the acting was top-notch and the directing was adequate, if a little bland. Hollywood..who can figure what these guys are thinking?

Because of the non-release of this film to theaters, I find the DVD quite disappointing. The extra features are very lean. The few that are there are interesting, but I would have loved to have seen more about the making of this movie, more (in depth) interviews with the cast and crew. If the DVD had more features, it would be more appealing and I honestly think it’s good enough to have gained a cult following, if SOMEthing special had been done with this release.

I know, I shouldn’t complain. At least it’s finally available to those of us who can’t travel the film festival circuit.

Previous ‘review’:
I just bought this movie, so I can’t really say if I like it or not.

However, it is just good to finally be able to see it. It’s been a film in production hell, failing to be picked up for theater distribution. From what little I’ve seen and from all that I have heard, I really can’t figure out why. The cast was good, the look of the film is professional and the plot is quite intriguing.

There’s no explaining the mechanisms of Hollywood. Especially when pieces of crap like the live action Cat in the Hat can be made, wasting millions of dollars, when small maturely made films like this get passed over everyday.

I hope to have more of a review once I have seen the film and had time to view some of the bonus materials.
