«hmmm, I must have hit the wrong key. Oops! Anyway, as I was saying... I had to go back and watch the 1st part after watching the 2nd. Very enjoyable! Cool story. Nice eye candy, too!»
ENIGMA III - ep07 - Shadows
«Sorry it took me so long to get round to reviewing this. I watched it a few minutes after you released it lol but figured I'd leave the review when I was reviewing all the others this week
Well this was one of the best episodes so far, great writing by Killian and great direction to create the suspense needed for this story. The pacing was absolutely perfect. I felt the last couple of episodes were a little fast in terms of pacing and seemed rushed as a result but with this one you took your time and allowed the tension to really soak in, which was really effective in engaging the viewer. I loved your use of mods as always. It's almost taken for granted now that every movie you make has so many new mods created for it that it doesn't even seem like you're using the Movies software anymore. Great novelty value to keep things fresh. It's what makes the Enigma series different from anything else on TMU as you are always on the cutting edge as it were.
As a small negative I thought my VOs were a little loud lol, though it was probably my fault for shouting so loud haha. I just found it a little jarring every time my character spoke. You should have reminded me to redo them lol. Also, although the "creature" looked awesome and really creepy, I think perhaps it would have been better to retain a little of the mystery and not show it so explicitly and for so long. Now a lot of the suspense will be missing from the next part in my opinion because we already know what the creature looks like. That's just my opinion though and doesn't impact on the episode as a whole.
Like I said, this was one of my favourite episodes and I'm really looking forward to Series 4 now lol. Awesome job Uber
***** - 5 stars»
«So as usual my boy Uber sent me a personal PM, reminding me of my Enigma fix...(god knows I pay him an arm and a leg for that good genuine stuff )...anywho I sat down and watched it and gee was it a goody...
*The modding was nothing less to be expected from an Uber film. From the research station to the cadaver in the morgue (sickbay), top notch as usual.
*Good story writing, that flowed well spurting a new twist on a common idea. Though some may see this as a let down, I feel its refreshing and a nice homage to those before.
*Loved the nebula effect and the opening shot, detailing the distress call. YUMMMY!!
*Great VOs from the cast as usual...I found some parts entertaining at most including the crewman's response to that weird one in the corner heh!
*There were a few GFX glitches like the greenscreen would be momentarily visible or a scene pop. Nothing THAT major, but a nuisance after rendering
*Um cliffhanger?! Really?! Geez make me pissed will you! >;l
*Those creatures....nuff said...
All in all, a great finale to a long standing Sci-Fi machinima series. Now I cant wait for the season premiere of the next....whats up with the scientist? will the SD, be deactivated? I guess I can only stay tuned for the next ep!
«Wow, I mean wow. But the....and that was....
OK, so lets start with the basics: modding work of course was awesome - the hallmark of an Uber film. Plus the seemless combination of multiple programs led to this being as visualally stunning as ever. What really stood out with this episode was the use of shadow actaully. We saw a lot of that in Ep6 and you brought it back tactfully and effectivly here.
Sound, what do I really need to say? Same goes for your stellar cast.
OK, the story. Well I want to say - that's not fair. With the amount of time it will take you to make the next one with the exceptioanl quality you always make Enigma, my brain will melt in anticipation. I'm going to have to write a letter and complain. You and your mysterious cliffhangers!
In all seriousness though this was a crakin' thrill ride and proves that you can do even better when we thought that a peek might have been reached with the stunning opening of this season.
Can't wait for Season 4!»
«Excellent work, mate! Almost exactly how I envisaged it in my own mind!
The only downside is we've gotta wait til Season 4 to see how it all turns out!
Corking mod work as we've come to expect, some great performances and the tension came out really well... can't wait for the next season!
...is it not done yet??? »
