Epside 1- Pilot
«Listen, if you think you're too good for constructive criticism I can think of a hundred and one other things I'd rather be doing than watching your movies. Chris and I took the time to review your movie and to try to give you tips on improving, and we also featured the film on our show last Saturday. We didn't do this because we enjoy watching badly made movies, we did it so we could try and help you to improve. If you don't want our help, that's fine. Like I say, I am not going to lose sleep over not watching your movies if this is the way you respond to a bit of negative feedback.
Everyone has room to improve. In regards to your comment, I actually DID read your description. I read it several times, wondering how the hell this was in any way supposed to resemble what was happening onscreen. Insulting our intelligence because we didn't get it was a bad move methinks. You're beginning to get a reputation man, and if you want to avoid being alienated by the members of this site you need to show them some respect.
I personally am going to continue reviewing your movies complete with constructive criticism in the hope that eventually you might try and take some advice. Obviously you don't have to take it, as it's just my opinion, but you would think that after 5 people have said the same thing about your film you might begin to realise that perhaps they could be right.
Or you could call them stupid... Your choice...»
«We all understand what's supposed to be going on The plot isn't the problem; it's the presentation that is confusing us.
Many times you blatantly had camera angles showing off the set which made the whole thing look amateur. The music also drowned out a lot of the voices so I couldn't understand much of what was going on. The commercial break was also a very odd decision considering you could have chosen to just show us the full show without doing that. I was also dissapointed with the use of a laugh track because it never aided the story once, and was never really added at appropriate times. Often the laughter overlapped possibly crucial lines of dialogue which hindered my ability to understand just what it was I was watching.
I had a very hard time getting into this "show". Like I said, it was poorly constructed and edited with very odd choices in voices, music, and camera angles. If you're going to continue this, I would suggest a serious reworking, because it currently seems very disjointed and shoddily put together.»
«What the heck? Why was the sound so random? I didn't understand anything that was going on here at all. The VOs were overpowered by weird music and the dreaded canned laughter, then suddenly the volume would go way up and almost deafen me. The visual aspect did have promise though, some nice camerawork and cool titles at the start (although I couldn't read them properly). Overall I think you need to make it less random, the sound was really a bit of a mess, it made it impossible to understand the story. Good luck with your next production

«The Phantom Says:
Badly colored subtitles against the background; I couldn't tell what half of them were supposed to say.
Random laugh tracks and inappropriate music scattered here and there, completely overwhelming the VOs, random scenes, subtitles suddenly appearing here and there just made the whole thing a mess, I'm afraid.
There was some OK camera work here and there, but the majority of the scenes were badly constructed; the backdrop for the main introduction of the characters had absolutely nothing to do with the scene itself, for example, and the very first shot focussing straight at the edge of the city set, where there was nothing but blue sky.
The sound levels were very poorly balanced and nearly made me turn off more than once; I was nearly deafened in the last few seconds.
Some potential, but comedy doesn't come from laugh tracks that drown out whatever amusing line the character says.
The Phantom says: a 3. Must try harder.»
