Hey all, sorry the updates have been few and far between lately. I’ve been working on a couple of different projects, one of which I’m proud to share with you today!! About a month ago, a group of friends and I participated in the Guerrilla Film Challenge, where we wrote, shot, and edited a short film in 48 hours. Our genre was “mockbuster,” the proud tradition of low-budget B-movies pioneered by The Asylum. We selected summer blockbuster The Avengers. Thus, THE REVENGERS!!
To help us have at shot at winning the $1000 People’s Choice prize, please click on the video’s “like” button on the YouTube page. I’m not entirely sure whether they’re tallying “likes” or views or both, so doing both is the best way to help us out. Thanks so much!!
P.S. While you’re there, why not check outMiddleman: The Don DeFalski Story, another short film by a bunch of my friends? Voting isn’t a zero-sum game, so “liking” them doesn’t hurt us. Support good movies!!
As of right now, The Avengers has had the largest opening weekend of any film in history. It’s received rave reviews, and generated its share of controversy. You probably have an idea of whether or not you’re going to see it, if you haven’t seen it already. But in case you need my take on it to convince you, here it is: The Avengers is really, really good. Not perfect, not the best movie I have ever seen in my life, but a genuinely enjoyable, funny, well-written and acted summer blockbuster which is definitely worth seeing.
