«I can't believe Galaxy At War is for the most part canceled, but after seeing this again, The Hunter has given me a hope that'll you'll make a new series capable of lasting many episodes, storywise, and succeeding the wits and charm of your other series.
There's one objective error that I noticed. When that contact was injected with the transponder, why didn't he warn Tinman in his spare time that there'll be a trap for him, so that he not only gets caught, but also he can get those hunters killed in the process. Plus, why did Hunter 08 let him go. Couldn't she had taken him in, allowing him to make the proper calls and appearances that he needed in the meantime to tide Tinman off? Call it a plot hole or not, but maybe you can explain this discrepancy in the next episode. Other than that, it was thrilling to rewatch it without bias. But, that error came at me out of nowhere. Didn't catch it the first time, but now that I did, consider it constructive criticism. If I could rerate this I would, but I now give it my rating of 5/5.»
«A new scifi series from chris62 called the hunter... The Hunter, Ok, lets start out with the fact that this is a scifi world that is like so many others in that its only living inhabitants are Men and Aliens... No deer, no ducks.. .no Space Bunnie for the universe's only gainfully employed hunter... He is THE hunter.. but in these strained financial times, you know he's going to get that call from the front office... Hunter... come in and sit down... we have been going over your records, and... well it seems your numbers have been off of late, and we are just going to have to let you go...
Let me go... Im the best alien hunter you've got! I cant help it if the aliens baddies are getting fewer and are moving further and further away... It just means I'm doing my job!
Well, the corperate manangment has decided to go in a new direction... You are being replace.. You ever hear of that martian Jon Jonnzz... I hear he is a terriffic hunter!
But He's a MAN Hunter... it says so on his business cards Martian MAN Hunter...
Exactly, we feel you just wouldnt be up to the transition... And besides have you seen this guy... tall muscular... Green.. and the way he fills out a pair of tights.. oh yes He's our man..
He isnt even Human.. He's a Martian for god's sake...
And he wears a cape... Now go clean out your desk, security will escort you to the door... Jon wants to get moved in as soon as possible...
So.. as you can see, Im not really sure where Chris is going to go with this... but Stay Tuned for The Hunter, episode 2
I enjoyed this episode, for the most part. You have a great imagination and are a prolific machinima producer. The story picks you up and takes you along for the ride, the acting was good, although at times the delivery of the actors seemed a bit slow, as if the pauses between lines were too long. That might just be down to personal prefference.
The images are rich and creative and your ability to add visual FX and cool music always spices up your movies a lot. However, some of the character animations looked a bit stiff to me, like you might have spent more time
making them look more natural.
Finally, my pet peeve, typos in the subtitles.. it's like making a gourmet meal and then setting the table on fire when you serve it..it only takes 5 extra minutes to check the spelling right??
Overall,l I really enjoyed "The Hunter", Tinman rocks as Tinman can, and the cast carried it well. Nice alien work too.
I'll be watching the next episode.
«I'm sorry...again, Chris, but I just cannot get into this as much as I'd like to. Here are the pros of this pilot:
.Nice hommage to the Star Wars/Star Trek aura from 30 years ago
.Nice set up of introducing the characters that we know we'll see again in the next episode
.Nice production design all around
However, there were some troubling cons (some of which aren't your fault, but for anyone reading this, I'd strongly recommend you follow this advice for future filmmaking):
.The aliens. Now, even though I don't believe in it, from an macro-evolutionary point of view, humanoid aliens would serve to annul the theory as even viable. We humans evolved in our environment into the form we are now to suit are needs. It'd be a mathematical impossibility for other lifeforms to have even a similar form to us. Plus, aliens probably wouldn't talk with their mouths (maybe telepathically, or by other forms of communication). It's okay how you went with the norm, but this method of differentiating the species from other planets would make a series like this much more realistic to a macro-evolutionary point of view.
."In space, no one can hear you scream." This is my biggest pet peeve. You can't hear any sound in space - it's just too vast for any sound to travel and ricochet back to you in a form that you can hear it in. All these ships traveling and the sound FX of the wormwholes they travel thru wouldn't be heard by anyone. Like the Star Wars films, it's nice to hear it, but once virgin ears hear this (as did mine), it's better to go with the course taking by Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
.And here's something that you can really, really work on. The lines. Of course, the delivery of the lines were good, but the lines themselves were kinda out there. Like with the scene with the ambassador dude and with the fight with Tinman (which is kinda nice to watch), the exposition is like too obvious. Repetitions of terms like Andromeda galaxy could've been replaced with, "You really want me to go there.", etc, etc. I know I have my flaws (as do every screenwriter), but something like the conveyance of exposition is something that I can really help you with. As Hitchcock once said, "Exposition is a pill that MUST BE sugar-coated." That doesn't mean to give us a lot of it. It simply means to give it to us like a trying to give a dog it's medicine by coating it in peanut butter.
Otherwise, this is a fine-good series. Since many of my pet peeves have been established as nature in this, there isn't much you can do (except with the sound in space issue). Other than that, please work on the exposition, and please don't be afraid to call/skype me on there if you need help with it (because I'm really good with stuff like that). Thanks again for a thoroughly enjoyable video. A 4...out of 5!»
«This will be a really good series. Keep up the timing. The idea is really good and has am immediate payoff of intrigue and action... with eye cansy to boot in the FX department. The music choices reminded me a little of the latest incarnation of the Dr. Who series. For a first episode, it was well done! Bring on THE HUNTER!
