Trivia

Although the title is a play on words of the Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, the film itself is not a spoof of the Spielberg classic. See more »

amusing sci fi spoof
11 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This short is pretty neat. It's far more than a one joke film asthe other comment says. It's well made, well produced, it's just a shame it didn't get more of a playing.

Interesting to note that the director has actually remade this short as part of his first feature film. The remake sets a different tone and is more polished, but I have to say I prefer this version. It's like when Wes Anderson did a short version of bottle rocket that wasn't the most well made film, but was really funny and had a great tone to it, then he makes the feature length version and then cuts out a load of really funny dialogue...I'm not sure why he did that, or why the director of this film would remake a perfectly good film not so well.

As always, the original is always the best:)
