I sort of agree with both of the others... though they did actually make the thing.
12 May 2006 | by lorien-7See all my reviews

You know, in one sense anyone may have, and share, their opinion about anything they want, even their own work... but Mike. Oh, Mike.

Now let's be clear - he isn't trying to boost sales (it isn't presently for sale), and his name is clearly emblazoned above the review, so he's not being deceptive or anything, but Mike...

Reviewer "Obliv", who stars as the lead villain, is spot on about the movie. It is quite ambitious. Most Local Filmmakers follow the rule that says to only write what you can shoot. Mike wrote what James Cameron could shoot, and then set out to do it himself on his own hard work, and the goodwill of friends. He edited it on a linear editing system (which means that you're essentially re-recording the shots one after the other. If you realize, 20 minutes in, that you want to fix something at the beginning, your only option is to start over). Much of the acting is wooden (happens in Hollywood occasionally), but not all of it. Much of the story is derivative (Hollywood!), but the mix is int'resting. One scene just works - it involves a guy hunting through wreckage as an alien onslaught continues around him. Its placement in the film, the camera-work, and Mike's use of sound effects made it convincing.

It is unlikely that anyone reading this who does not personally know these reviewers will ever see this film, because it was scored with the music of Jerry Goldsmith. You could call it a "temp track", but it's really probably stuck there, unless the picture undergoes a whole re- edit. But if Mike becomes more popularly known, this might give you a glimpse into his work as a young adult.
