Movie fans; me and reviewreviewer1's masterpiece is FINALLY here

(1/5) > >>

I was just hoping that maybe my fellow Bucs fans will support me and my friend reviewreviewer1 with our master review of The Wolfman. We spent weeks working on it, and this will probably get ZERO views, but I really want people to see this. Basically, we worked on the script together, I did about 52% of the script and he did around 48%, and he is the one who recorded himself as he has a less restrained schedule. Again, please watch as I really spent a long time on this and really would appreciate support and response. Thank you!

NOTE: The guy in the video is a character. The crazy things he says are simply to add to the comedy, he is actually nothing like that in real life and a really nice guy.

That was painful.  I'm sorry, but that's really all I can say about it.  You should probably rethink your approach.

What about it did you hate?

3rd String Kicker:
MSU Fan,

Looks like you put a lot of time and effort into this. I am a fan of horror movies in general, but I wasn't the biggest fan of the Wolfman remake. I think Anthony and Benicio are great actors, but the movie just dragged to me a little bit. I don't see too many remakes turning out though, perhaps I was fond of Hills Have Eyes and Zombie's interpretations of Halloween. I remember seeing Walker in Fight Club as an actor, but I'm fairly certain that was exclusively Chuck Palahniuk's work, with Fincher's interpretation. I like how the film looks, the scenery, the special effects, but I'm just not hooked into the story line. To be fair, I wasn't the biggest fan of the original either though. I liked American Werewolf in London and the Howling series, as far as Werewolf flicks go. I liked Silver Bullet as a kid as well, but I probably wouldn't be able to sit through it today.

As far as the reviews go, I think you could increase your audience by shortening the length drastically, it was a 4 part at about an hour. I feel like some of the strongest audience channels started off with shorter teasers and eventually may have led into more detailed analysis of films and whatnot. Like fishing, you have hook before you can reel. I feel like the review was scripted a bit at times, I think with a shorter review you won't have to worry so much about scripts and you can let your ideas flow. I have found in the past when doing video reviews and presentations, that when you run a script sometimes you'll have pace issues, where you'll either speak too quickly or too slowly. You begin to focus on the words and you slip with your inflection and emotion, which can go a long way into keeping your audience interested.

I feel it would be cool to have trademark segments, where when you review future films it is consistent with previous films. For example, when Talking with the Dead responds to Twitter questions and what not. Again, you would have to build your audience and get the feedback first, but it's just a thought. Maybe at the end of each review, you could throw recommendations out there ie; If you liked Wolfman, you might like Dune. (Sorry, I felt Wolfman dragged).

Let me sum up 3SK's post: It sucked.

But, keep at it, dude. Criticism should only motivate you to do better.
