Why I can't watch movies with my friends....
4 December 2010 | by (Raleigh, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

I sit through movies like this making the following types of comments: "Why are the cheerleaders' outfits Carolina blue and white while the players' uniforms are solid burgundy? Can't they agree on their school colors?" and "Why is the store clerk giving the girl her change in bills and coins when the purchase price was an even $16.00?" and "How can the 'best place' to watch a meteor shower be 12.5 miles outside of town? Don't they pretty much cover the sky throughout an area?"

Perhaps I should get a job sitting around the shooting sets pointing these things out to the directors.

One nice aspect of the film is that the story is open to some interpretation, especially the purpose/role of the titular "lights." Odd things happen and you are given very little clue as to why.

This is strictly an amateur production, but it's very watchable. The score is mixed a little too loud, but technically everything is within reasonable limits. The FX are decent for an independent film, too. And, after all, Charlie and Emilio aren't going to support Joe forever.
