The Purpose of a Film
15 July 2011 | by jbum5See all my reviews

First of all, let me say that the purpose of watching a film is for entertainment. If the majority of viewers are not entertained then the film missed it's mark. Chris Forbes - your comments in the above mentioned "review" were as poorly written as your film. You can't rebuke other reviews of western fans because they don't like your movie. There is no personal attack here. It is simply a judgment passed on the work itself. To call names and insult your audience is amateur, at best. If you had done your job as a director you would be reading reviews that I am sure you would be more proud of. Do what professionals do; read the reviews and learn what you need to do different next time around. The "whining" you are referring to seems to be coming from ForbesFilm.

Now, for my opinion of the film - Chris Forbes needs to be a director and nothing more. There are many things done right here. A recognizable name is cast in the film, some shooting was done well. However, you need to bring a real camera man on board with you. You need to let a professional musician do the music. You need to get a real screenplay and tell that story. You can't do it all. For a one man show I'd have to rate it 2 stars.
