Did You Know?

Quotes:
Harkness:Lexi, what did you do to Murnau?
Lexi:I used an atomic decelerator on him!
Harkness:And why did you choose such a weapon?
Lexi:Potential energy weapons are banned on Altair IV.
Harkness:So you etherized his entire corporeal being? We have expended much, including the life of Fiona in order to make Klaaghu who is a Lazerene like myself into Kluduthu. Now, his entire corporeal being has been dissolved by an ancient and impractical weapon, and do you think you killed him?
Lexi:No.
Harkness:No.
Lucretia:He may yet be Kluduthu.
Lexi:Well then it's alright?

Surprisingly well made celebration of olden SF values. for CGI haters., 8 June 2009
Author: huh_oh_i_c from Earth, Solar system

I must deduct a point or two, because the storyline is very complicated, and not in a good way. This might also have to with the fact that the audio is not always clearly audible. And the only thing I knew about this movie was the genre and the title, not even the tag-line.

But otherwise ... This is a superior made movie, especially if you consider the limited budget. What makes this one special, is that by using less CGI, only at moments when they really have to, they manage to make it look more real than the current big studio-crap out there. For example, NBC's web-series IQ-145 and Gemini Division with big stars like Thomas Dekker and Rosario Dawson, are completely acted in front of a blue screen, and while their CGI doesn't look bad, it gives a really cartoonish taste to their webisodes.

Millennium Crisis, on the other hand, embraces their special effects, which might be a bit outdated, but that gives it its charm.

What's also quite refreshing is that they tried to make aliens as alien as possible, with a decidedly alien-sounding hiss-and-click language, breather masks, and they didn't follow the unholy Battlestar Galactica trend.

Because these days the biggest sinner against Sci-Fi rules is the new Battlestar Galactica, of course! The rule is: When using aliens and alien cultures and customs, the CHALLENGE is to make them as unhuman-like as possible of course. Make the non-Earth beings as Earth-like as possible, especially in their motivations.

It's not a challenge AT ALL to make people or beings in scifi look and act like badly disguised present day Texans, Chinese or Pennsylvanians! That's just insulting the viewers intelligence.

The new Battlestar Galactica makers claim that they wanted to focus "on the drama" as the reason for all this, so they made the cinematography look like the thirties, and the new series "Caprica", look like Canada in the nineties!

By huge contrast, this film really tries to be really alien in the art direction and cinematography at least. In the storyline, they fail a bit, a vampire angle is rather human, and what's more, they don't explain that it IS a vampire until the last quarter of the film. So, the story can be quite hard to follow. Nevertheless, all in all a good film, with adequate acting, strong female roles, which is what probably pissd off the other commenters, since the chances are that they're white males. There aren't any strong roles for them in this film.

As a fan and avid low budget movie watcher, I can say that in comparison with other low-budget sci-fis, like the Asylum ones, the BSG webisodes and the Webserials, this one surpasses them in quality by far.
