Revenge of the Movie Buffs

Matt and Owen are best friends at the same high school. They are sort of geeky and as such are continually being picked on and bullied by their class mates - who are obviously a bunch of cowards as all bullies are. They are doing a class project in which they have to make a film. This is right up their street as they are both mad movie buffs. So they decide to make a film about how they take revenge on the bullies - as they call them 'the dirties' - and use as many filmic references as possible.

This all seems well and good, only one of them is slightly more serious than the other - cue the mayhem.

Well this is a rather well made indie and you can tell a lot of heart and soul has gone into the production. There are some really good lines and some well observed pieces too especially regarding relationships and movie making. The acting is all surprisingly good too. The only issue may be the way some of the action pans out but that will be a matter of taste for the viewer. All in all they pack an awful lot into the 80 minute run time. I would rate as 7/10 as I always appreciate a good and original indie production.
