Really fun and charming no-budget serial tribute
5 November 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of classic serials or vintage no-budget film making, than you really owe it to yourself to track down this tribute to the old Republic serials. Its both hilarious and lots of fun for classic cinema buffs, and manages to be completely charming during its short running length of an hour. The film tells a story about how Captain Celluloid of the Film Institute has to track down the nefarious Master Duper, whose been bootlegging negatives of classic films such as "The Big Parade" and "Greed" and selling them to film societies and private collectors. The fact that the film was made on absolutely zero budget by earnest and enthusiastic film fans makes it all the more impressive. They were obviously making this for the entertainment of themselves and friends, and thats what makes it a rather unique viewing. Its difficult to find, but if you're interested, I fully recommend this one. (7/10)
