Raimi Matthews: The throat tightens, the heart races, the pupils dilate, I love that moment of giddy anticipation before you get what you want. Soon I'll a sore throat, stained fingers, and a benzene headache, but right now, at this moment, my whole existence rests on the tip of this cigarette. God bless the cancer merchants. I'm getting what I want.

Word Is Bond!

What can I first say? It's fantastic? It's amazing? It is the one of the most spectacular stories I have ever seen? This would all be suitable, except seeing is always better than hearing the gossip. I have not said enough about how truly great Broken Saints is. True, I could be making it sound greater than it really is, but that is different for each person. Some people may think I'm full of crap, some people may completely agree, and hopefully some think I bought the DVD, and anyone who enjoys comics, epics, anime,or just plain good story telling ... this is definitely a keeper in your DVD collection. Broken Saints has got it all: A genuinely new style, an epic storyline, good memorable quotes and scenes, one of the best scores to a film I have ever heard, great artwork and technical direction, great writing, good moral to the story, and great characters.

Also when watching Broken Saints it will just give you goosebumps all over. You get that deep awesome (awesome as in awe inspiring, not simply meaning cool) feeling when watching the "freak out" scenes. "Freak out" moments, as I call them, is when one of the characters starts seeing weird and bizarre things. Wheather they are hallucinating or dreaming or just being attacked by someone (that happens a couple of times).

Broken Saints is also good for its creator. Brooke Burgess, writer and director of Broken Saints, is a definitely a good role model. He made the site completely free for anyone to watch, he did not resort to using advertisers and pop-ups to get money for his site (since it would ruin the mood that Broken Saints conveys). After Broken Saints was made big by many awards and made for DVD Brooke had many offers from Warner Bros., Universal, and Fox to convert Broken Saints into a feature film, but one of his characters would have to be changed. An Iraqi mercenary, who is very Muslim and hates Americans. This of course, many big American producers will not like, but they have a load of money. Still, their bribes could not break Brooke's integrity. Also I have e-mailed Brooke once, giving him my thanks and appreciation (since, you can already tell, I am a huge Broken Saints fan). He replied to the email personally a couple of days later and was really nice. Now come on, is there anything wrong here? NO!

Broken Saints: A great story, with a creator who is not an a-hole! Hurray! So go to

Go to BrokenSaints.com ... so weep and bare witness, for the end is nigh!
