Joseph was evil!

«Well, finally I had an opportunity to watch this, and I have to say right off the bat... damn, that ending was hilarious! Is was great how you were able to build up such an epic, 'feel-good' kind of climatic ending and then deflate it in a split second. That twist was unexpected, timed perfectly, and perfectly rounds out this comic corker.
You assembled a golden cast that all played themselves perfectly (expected, since they were playing themselves, LOL), but, ultimately, the person that takes the top honors is JosephKW, who plays a delightfully wicked, evil mirror of himself. Everyone is great for their roles, though, of course. The storyline is an intriguing one, hailing back to the old days of TMO (Chart wars, one-star ninjas, hobos, oh my!), and you pull this all off with some strong writing and great one-liners. (Rate my movies... tee hee hee!) When JosephKW said "Do you know who I am?" in the beginning, I wasn't sure why but I laughed pretty hard. And before I forget to mention this, when that dude near the beginning (still trying to figure out who's who) flys away in that high tech ship, it was so oddball and unexpected that I laughed out as well. (And everyone apologizing after they hurt the stunt double... priceless!) You wrote a script that was funny, intriguing, and yet completely true (not about Joseph, of course, but about the old days of TMO). Camera angles were good, but the angles in the finale were excellent, adding a sweeping, epic feeling. (Especially in the ending!)
It took me about five minutes to figure out that the JosephKW going down the stairs was the real one, but that was just me. A differently colored bow tie would work nicely, but as I said, I figured it out in the end, and wow, what a twist it was!
Great music choice, it really lends itself to the quirky-then-epic feel of the comedy. Lower the volume so that some of the lines can be better heard, and I would have a few suggestions about music placement in the very end, but overall it is excellent music that accentuates the quirky atmosphere of the film. There were some small editing hiccups here and there, (for example, the staircase slow-motion: Loved the slow motion, but cutting to the facial shots of the other characters rather than group it all at the end would work nicely), but the finale had some really nice, tight editing. . The film overall was pretty long, and you could shave off a good couple minutes with some really careful editing, but to be honest, I didn't really notice the length that much.
Overall, I would give it a 4.85 (Round to a 5). It's an incredibly fun movie, serving both as a well-written action/comedy/mystery bonanza and a great tribute to the films of JosephKW and others. Sorry if I put so many suggestions in one review, there were a few minor technical hiccups that stuck out to me, but aside from that, it's incredibly entertaining, wonderfully quirky, and features one of my favorite endings ever! I commend you for this great effort, and good luck in the Ollies!

«An amusing and epic comedy that kinda of brought me back to the old chart wars days on TMO. Some really funny bits here and a well written script.
I found it a bit long, some of the music was distracting and overly loud, and the mumbling should always be turned off in my book.
I love the slo mo with the music at 18:13.
Some very nice voice performances in this as well.
«Very funny, very well written. I like how you associated Howie's EZ Munnie into his opening scene. I think there should have been one line to justify having 2 AsaOLeary's on the set, besides that I have enjoyed the movie a great deal.
Very well done, I am pleased that someone that can direct and write like that is now apart of Baskit.»
«I'm going to agree with the other reviews. That camera shots were really very nice, and the acting was very well done. A movie that successfully grabbed and kept my attention for a full 25 minutes is one that certainly something good can be said for, and I really enjoyed watching this. The only thing that I found a bit annoying was the transitions between scenes; I'm rather unfamiliar with the programs, so I don't know if a fade would've been possible; but sometimes the screen seemed to go black for a bit too long, making the movie seem kind of jerky. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but it was really the only thing I have bad to say about this.
In anycase, this was very enjoyable to watch; and you did an excellent job with it. :] Keep it up!»
«That was an epic film, Mac Attack!
This move had a ton of great moments, some being funny, some being totally surprising, and some being unpredictable.
The cast was phenomenal! Everybody did really well, and I like how they played themselves. That was cool. The music choices were awesome, and really set the mood of the film. The script was great, really good storyline, and dialogue.
"He's your brother!"
"Well, not really. I wanted to stop you from shooting him, Joseph!"
LOL. Oh, and when Ben took the stairs, and the others took the elevator, that made me chuckle.
Great special effects in this film as well, I liked the slow walking effect on the stairs, and all that cool stuff. Must of took some time to get it right.
To sum it all up, this was a classic, and zany film. And, I'm glad I watched it.
«This wasn't a tribute, it was a slander of Joseph...but great work Mac, you've nailed that SOB!...This was brilliant Mac, I really loved the ending as well, everything looks like it is going to be alright and nice and then Ben comes and ruins it...fantastic ending!...Best ending to a TMU movie in my books!
***** - 5 Stars!»
«I always knew JKW had a more sinister plan for the world and it's great to see you rat him out :-)
Seriously though, this is one great tribute full of surrealistic humour and wit. The time flew by and some of the sequences were really memorable (particularly the abrupt demise of "x" and the zombie battle)
Enjoyable from start to finish. The wait's been worth it.»
«This had some truly inspired comic bits in it. The direction and camera shots on the end bit just went along wonderfully with the soundtrack. It was really well done. The actor playing JosephKw just nailed the part. He was truly believable. Dulci and the rest of the cast were awesome as well. »
«This was not only hilarious, but it was wrapped around an engaging story with great action sequences to boot. I was actually cheering for myself during this movie (but then again, I usually do that). Add to it a cast of some of TMU's top directors and you have a memorable must-see film! »
«This has to be Comedy of the month.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tongue in cheek adventure with some great jokes, nice OTT effects at times (the JKW zombie horde battle was superb) and some perfect timing (a hell of a perfectly timed ending!!)!
I was laughing out loud the whole time (that dog cracked me up!).
It was great that you got all the directors to play themselves, it really added to the story.

«Nice job, Mac - funny, surrealistic, and inspiring...well, okay, scratch inspiring.
After watching, though, I have to ask - exactly how much truth is there in this? Is this JKW disinformation, getting the audience laughing while subtly directing them to check out a JosephKW movie? Is this film a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma?
I don't know the answers, but I enjoyed the film.»
