Daddy
Directed by: Domicile Destructo
Released: March 2003
Preview A boy lives a dramatical life where his dad beats him up. It sounds like a solid story that could change into something beautiful. Sadly this movie lacks the aspect of bringing true drama to the scene. Although it supposed to be a short movie, the director could have done more on the relationship between father and son. The movie is fast, too fast for me actually. The scenery and animation is good. In some cases a bit average but still effective. The ending made me almost laugh. I mean hating your dad is one thing but killing your dad is something else. All in all this is an average movie. Good to watch once, too bad to watch twice.

Daddy's House
Directed by: Jeremy Dick, Spencer Crabb
Released: August 2003
Preview Forget high quality scenery! Forget interesting characters! Forget a good soundtrack! This movie hasn't any of the above but still it made me laugh out loud! This is your typical light-hearted, old school, chain movie directed by Jeremy Dick and Spencer Crabb - when they were bored. Annoyingly, there is no ending cause they hadn't time to finish it, and perhaps it doesn't really belong in a Film Festival, but it's a nice change from the more serious movies.

Dark Forest Trailer
Directed by: Richard Bevis
Released: May 2005
Preview Richard the director has been asking me for weeks to add these movies to the site. I don't know how he found me, but he managed to get in contact with me through MSN. I honestly didnít know what to expect when receiving this - so many times similar situations have arisen and the director has turned out to be, one, annoying, and two, complete rubbish. This is only a trailer, and I have no idea whether or not the movie will ever actually see a release, but for a very new newbie this isn't actually a bad effort. The hard thing when reviewing a movie is to analyse it in such a way that it draws together constructive criticism so that it doesn't scare and discourage a promising director. I just thought I'd make this comment here before I get stuck in with the review. Now, the movie... Purely and simply, this movie has a long way to go. Richard has had a very good go at creating an atmospheric and involving horror flick. Despite the 'amatuer' feeling of the trailer, I thought that the overall feeling of 'darkness' was great - something that's not easy to 'fake'. The scenery is fairly basic and the animation is at best, jumpy. The character movements are pretty much sorted, but as soon as any moving camera work or 'panning' was attempted, everything just fell flat on it's face. Sound wise, this movie is a hard one to fault. I thought that the choice of music fitted in very well with the apparent 'horror' theme of the title. Even the voicing was very well done. Everything was actually in the right place, the director just needs a bit more practice and direction. I have a strong feeling that this trailer was made as a standalone movie before the actually movie has started production. Overall this is a great start for a new and emerging 3dmm director. Keep working at it Richard! Review by Will Cheyney.

Darkness Within
Directed by: Dave Smith, Andrew Murphy
Released: June 2001
Preview Well I wasn't too impressed. I think this is the worst of the trilogy. The scenery was still very good and the overall look of the film was pleasing. However, the voice acting was sub-standard and the plot was luke-warm. Aside the dodgy erotic scenes, cheap voicing and lacking plot,. this wasn't a complete bomb, it had its good points. Download for a structured crime drama with some flaws. Review by Richard Bevis.

Darkness Within 3
Directed by: Andrew Murphy, Dave Smith
Released: May 2005
Preview Hmm I didn't enjoy this as much as the 2nd 'Darkness Within.' It seemed like it was made simply as a sequel, forced to be made, it didn't have the same feel as the 2nd. The voice acting remains very good and the plot still as twisted but the scenery has gone downhill slightly, and it didn't have that 'Darkness Within' involvement. Still in saying that it was pretty good and is a reasonable sequel to this action, crime drama series. Review by Richard Bevis.

Dark Side of the Force Part I
Directed by: Jason Woolford
Released: January 2002
Preview Jason Woolford's attempt at the Star Wars universe in 3dmm comes off as wonderfully composed and remarkably clever. The story is fairly basic for a Star Wars movie, involving two Jedi who eventually come to a daunting task involving the ever present enemies, the Sith. Unfortunately, that's about as far as the story gets before the movie ends, which is a shame, because the look of the movie is so secure. Woolford's camera isn't the most movement-filled camera, but it does its job to capture the scene without frills. It would have been nice to see more panning shots as are often seen in Star Wars films, but it doesn't detract too much. The movie is just composed so well. All of the default actors have been clothed in text based custom clothing to give it the look of the movies. This is an impressive touch that lends some extra creativity to the film. Also impressive are the hand made characters, especially in the Jedi council. Great care was put into recreating Yoda, and he comes off as both expressive and well-composed. The music is MIDI-based, which detracts from the film a bit. The movie is also filled with a lot of default sounds for lightsaber battles, which lowers the feeling of being in the Star Wars universe a bit. The dialogue is top notch, with all the characters being portreyed well by Woolford and his friends. Dark Side of the Force ends before it really begins, however, which is a shame, since it carries on quite well while it lasts. Woolford recently returned to the community and hopefully will follow up on this tantilizing episode with something fuller. Review by Andrew Salter.

Dark Sun Story
Directed by: Charles DeVillier
Released: November 2002
Preview I have no idea where this movie appeared from as it is a couple of years old now. It is a movie Sammy directed, inspired by the rivaly that was apparent between Cal Flavell and 'Dark Sun' on the 3D Movie Maker Bulletin board back in 2002. Fairly meaningless if you missed everything that happened between the two over the Internet. It's not the best 'hate' movie 3dmm has seen but nevertheless, it has been well done. The camerawork wasn't bad in this movie, and scenery, which did leave something to be desired, was well constructed. The characters were good too, showing some signs of a good hand-made character director. Sammy has made an interesting film quite well, but with a slightly poor yet poignant plot.

Preview Holy shiat! This looks awesome. From the director of 'Resident Evil: Ground Zero', Jeremy Madzelan is giving us a sneaky-peak of his forthcoming title, Dead or Alive (nothing to do with the videogame). The scenery is fanatically detailed - which will more than likely slow down older machines. The camera angles look pretty swish too! The music seemed a little miss-fitting and there were a few of the rubbishy default sound effects thrown in, other than that, this looks top!

Death and Guns
Directed by: Jalal
Released: September 2003
Preview This movie is quite weird actually. It immediately starts off somewhere with a guy infiltrating a compound. We get no introduction or whatever. The main character is a 60 year old guy who for some reason is a highly skilled killer, with all the types of weaponry under the sun and a passion for killing to boot. I think this immediately explains the very thin plot, cause I really couldn't find any other connections with the story. The scenery is alright - extremely colourful in places which I don't find very fitting. The animation is a tad bit sloppy. The characters move too fast sometimes and the camera angels could be made more diverse. However, the worst is still yet to come! The voice acting was very poor, they were so... dull. It's obvious that they're reading off a piece of paper. Although this is the first time I've seen a movie by Jalal, I must admit that I found this movie to be more boring than entertaining. The movie tries to be serious but fails in the process. I hope Jalal will surprise us with a better movie in the future.

Preview A movie inspired by Owtzain's "The Wish", The Death Wish is about Marc's life and his depression. It's quite predictable at the end but I can understand where he is coming from. It's also fairly short, which is good for a self expressionistic movie such as this. The animation wasn't bad, although strange in a few places. The music, Porcelain by Moby, fit pretty well. The desired mood was achieved and the direction worked in alot of places. Not as good as The Wish but not bad.

Preview This is a strange movie...It's a good thing Ben told us what it's supposed to be about, or I probably wouldn't have understood any of it. Frankly, I still don't. It's a movie about death, and the whole thing is kind of abstract - that fits the movie well and gives a sense of feeling that not many people can create in 3dmm. Ben himself admits that's it not the most marvelous movie as far effects, but It gets the point across, and is a worthwhile download.

Deck the Hacks
Directed by: Ned Carlson
Released: July 2004
Preview Thousand frame scenes (mostly default) filled with nothing but mediocre dialogue and poor animation is not my cup of tea, and it's probably not yours. This movie, being a comedy, was not very funny. The only jokes, and I use that word loosely, have been done before, in many films. On top of that, the directing was non-existent. All characters were a stereotypical protagonist team, except Gramps. Gramps, unlike the others, was well developed by the end of the movie, but I can't say anymore without spoiling it. The few hand made scenes that were in the movie, had straight-on ground level angles. The voices however, were well done and definitely the best aspect of this movie. Overall, this movie was hard, no, painful to sit through.

Deep Under: Community Chain Movie
Directed by: BR, others
Released: December 2001
Preview This was pretty cool. I don't think I've seen a chain movie so well put together. Despite having been made by at least 6 different people, the movie still succeeds to be a really good, understandable watch. Often with chain movies, the general focus of the plot is lost somewhere along the way as everyone ends up looking at the story in a slightly different perspective. The scenery is good, perhaps a bit average at times. It's the same case with the animation and voice acting. Overall this is a fine example of how to do a chain movie - something that could be great inspiration for others in the future.

Preview Being the perfectionist that I am, I just happened to pick up on the small details which were out of place in this movie, and there were quite a few. The titles were not in line and the camera work was pretty lousy. The one other thing which really killed this movie for me, was the horrendously bad character movements used. The scenery was also extremely basic, nothing much used even though it was hand-made. The plot of this movie would be ruined if I spoke too much about it, but basically it's a man hunting down a delivery boy, which isn't too bad a plot and could have been extended further. Generally the movie wasn't bad but was let down by surreal motions and scenery which posed buildings as large colourful blocks. Review by Richard Bevis.

Deputy
Directed by: Ben Rice
Released: November 2004
Preview This movie had some major flaws and yet some fairly good points. One of the first things I noticed about it was the extreme apparance of poor sound use. Not only are many default 3dmm sounds used, but they're often badly applied. The music and speech overlaps so much this film would be better suited using subtitles! All voice acting is done by Ben himself and everything is a bit messed up; everyone sounds pretty much the same. As for the animation, it had some very good sequences in contrast to some rather creaky "90's" style bits - aka slow and blocky. Overall, not a bad attempt at a first movie - just keep trying Ben and you'll get there very soon.

Deputy: DVD Edition
Directed by: Ben Rice
Released: December 2004
Preview What can I say? I only reviewed the original, non-dvd version last update! Pretty much the same as before, except with more bells and whistles. It includes a widescreen and non-widescreen version of the film, a director's commentary, trailers for upcoming movies, and other random things. I don't think the widescreen edition of the movie worked too well, however. At times it was obvious that the movie had never been intended for such an aspect ratio, and at several points during the film scenery, props and characters were wrongly cropped or obscured. Every DVD menu was also messed up; the scene numbers given were completely wrong - something that Ben should have noticed and remedied before it's release. If you haven't seen the original version of Deputy, or if you were a huge fan of it, this is defiantly worth checking out. It's early days for Mr. Rice, and things look quite promising.

Derelict
Directed by: Andrew Johnson
Released: August 2005
Preview No one will want to make a 3dmm movie ever again after watching this. In true Hollywood style, Mousenator has presented us with what is in my opinion, not only the best movie of '05, but the best movie ever created in 3D Movie Maker. Every new scene is eyepleasing, the camerawork is stunning and the whole feel to the movie is very professional. The storyline of this epic space exploration follows a crew of people who venture into a derelict space craft and get more than they had bargained for. There are so many amazing twists in this movie, I question whether the director gained professional help. The scripting is beautiful, the plot is superb, and it is carried off serenely, by a score of magnificant music and well used sound effects. Mousenator has slowly made his way into the realms of being one of the best 3dmm director's around. Everyone must see this masterpiece. Review by Richard Bevis - 10/10.

Andrew Johnsonís sophomore film, Derelict, is a deliciously tense science fiction thriller filled with startling moments and intriguing plotlines. Though not without its flaws, Derelict is a fantastic film in a genre that until now was missing from 3dmm. The story involves an independent squad of space heroes of sorts. They appeared to be mercenaries along the line of Star Fox, except for the fact that they didnít all like each other. These people are drawn to a downed military spacecraft on a remote planet to investigate a distress call, but before long it becomes apparent that they are in fact fighting for their lives. The presentation is easily the best part of the film, with some complex camera rotations lots of tense, tight shots, and a lot of atmospheric footage. That said, the film does seem to have itís share of overlong scenes. Too many times, the viewer is kept waiting for what to happen next. It works when the intensity is building, but other times it drags the mood down. The visuals are very good, despite some unclear scenery and a few crosshatching problems. Johnson and co.ís use of v3dmm is impressive, not saturating the film with models, rather using only what is necessary. Johnson uses v3dmm and solid colours to create some good lighting effects, which compliment the mood of the film tremendously. The sound is the low point of the movie. Too many scenes lacked sound or proper mixing of the sound, which at times contributed to the overlong scenesí noticeability. The voice acting was right on for the most part, though some characters appeared to have mic problems. Overall the film is the best horror/thriller achievement in 3dmm yet, much due to its focus on those aspects. Though the story had its fair share of tangled plot points, Johnsonís captivating style and great eye for tension power the movie past those problems, leading to a wonderful result.

Desert Eagle
Directed by: Kyle Magocs
Released: August 2005
Preview A very pretty, soundtrack driven movie from Kyle which rightly or wrongly reminded me of Tim Burton's 'dark' style. This movie was inspired by the movies soundtrack according to Kyle, as a result a bizarre and twisted collection of animations depicting how an island is very different during the day than it is at night has been conceived... Once the sun goes down, the landscape becomes bent, the ground opens up and the dead walk the earth once more. Kyle has obviously used this as an exercise to test out the capabilities of Superdings, but that doesn't stop it from being a great opening movie for the 2005 Summer Film Festival and quite a nice 'lil watch. Review by Will Cheyney - 7/10.

A concept piece by Kyle Magocs, 'Desert Eagle' is a surreal fantasy adventure that focuses on imagery to pull the viewer in. It works, for the most part, but starts off a bit vague, leaving the viewer to wonder what exactly is happening. As far as story goes, the concept is simple, the character is shipwrecked on an island that comes alive at night. Well, the dead come alive, and other mysterious events happen. The problem is, the introduction to the night sequence isnít all that clear, which puts the movie off on a shaky foot. The presentation is clean and fitting for this sort of film. Magocsí camera moves almost every scene, giving it a more music video-like feel to it, rather than a cinematic feel. Some camera moves are a bit fast to see whatís going on, but given the nature of the film, it seems to fit better than it might have been intended to. Visually, the movie is solid, with the fantasy imagery being the main draw of the visuals. Magocs was aiming for a stylistic rather than realistic look, and that he achieves. Several effects, such as fire daemons, attacking trees and water effects are quite well done. There are some visual flaws, such as nasty crosshatching on a long establishing shot, but the overall strength outweighs the problems. Sound is a mixed bag. On one hand, it is a music video-type film, which dictates the sound should be just music, but at times the lack of dramatic sound effects did bring the experience down. No footsteps, crashes, or explosions to emphasize the action fit the style of the film, but I felt it could have done well if Magocs had included some bit of sound along with the soundtrack. Although practically lacking storytelling elements, the conceptual feel of this film is fresh and new. If youíre looking for a narrative and engrossing story, this isnít the film to watch. For a neat concept with well enough execution, Magocs has brought together this pleasant little film. Review by Andrew Salter - 7/10.

A great opener to the Film Fest, this is Kyle's surreal tale of an island that seems peaceful at first, but grows darker during the night. It's a pretty original idea for a story, and Kyle made it work well. The animation is really good, possibly the best part of the flick, although the scenery, with excellent uses of v3dmm and mainly Superdings, almost bests it. The special effects in the movie are great, such as the face in the fire, and the music fit very well, changing at just the right time. Overall, Kyle Magocs does it again, creating another short but sweet film that will hopefully put an end to the pattern of his movies being largely ignored. A recommended download. Review by Tom Bown - 8/10.

There is going to have to be a very convincing movie to follow this superb Film Fest opener. 'Desert Eagle' is a fantastical twist of awe-inspiring visual graphics and a wondrous theme of a mystical island-turned-land-of-the-dead. The music, although slightly dated and monotanous, fits the film very well, and the scenery, although lacking a lot of texture is well constructed, mainly out of Superdings. The panning and camerawork slots nicely into the film, if used a little too much, and this shows strongest when parts of the scenery break up and look 'amateurish'. v3dmm is used well throughout, and is also used greatly in context. Overall, Desert Eagle is a wonderous little film to watch, and was selected as the perfect movie to open the Film Fest with. A Recommended Download. Review by Richard Bevis - 8/10.

Kyle seems to have the gift of creating short and sweet movies to start up Film Festivals. In the Winter of 2004, he brought us 'Peak', a short movie which showed how dedicated he is to 3dmm. 'Desert Eagle' continues this knack of his for making movies that are nothing over a couple of minute in runtime, but either leave you with a dropped-jaw with a finger eager to click play again. The use of Aaron Haynes's Superdings expansion for v3dmm is put to great use, and a great example of such a tool can be used well. Like Peak there is no dialogue, just a journey involving a Doreamon character accompanied by music. This time the idea starts off a little bit like 'Cast Away', before turning into a supernatural adventure. I won't reveal anymore about it, but it must be said that Kyle has indeed given us some very nice eye candy to feast upon, coupled with some nice decent animations and scenery. Decent and original. Lets see whats up next... Review by Ben Rice - 7/10.

Diabolical Delightment
Directed by: Will Maltby
Released: August 2001
Preview When I first saw the prequel to this, EE, it was like the first time I saw a 3D movie made in 3dmm all over again - amazing! And when I heard that a the sequel DD was coming out, I got quite excited.... but had doubts to whether it could match EE in terms of quality. However, when the movie was finally released, after a years work, I was amazed to find out that it was actually infinitely better than EE. From the very start, the movie is well paced and crafted. The animation is nothing short of spellbinding, its probably the best ever, infact, the first time I saw DD, I fell of my chair in awe. The camera movements are fast, fluid and consistent. Will also wonderfully makes use of cinematic techniques such as slow motion, camera shake and matrix style camera swoops. The scenery was also excellent - never sparse and never over-the-top. Music and sound effects were chosen as if they were made just for this film. There was nothing that seemed out of place or distorted at any time. It all just fits - wonderfully. Again, like with EE, its major letdown is the problems with voices. At times of high octane, character voices are simple drowned out and lost, and you may find yourself either struggling to hear what they or saying, or simply stopping the scene and then starting it again, simply to get rid of the music temporarily - which you must admit, just isn't cricket. The movie has no proper storyline whatsoever, just Gustave mindlessly killing anyone in his way - but hey, who cares, when animation is this good it doesn't matter. Saying that, after 20mins or so, the killing does start to become a little tiresome. All in all, this is an instant classic, which no movie collection should be without. Download now, put your feet up, and be prepared for 20 or so minutes of mindless action.

Diabolical Delightment Hoax Trailer
Directed by: Will Maltby, Chris Ward
Released: April 2000
Preview On an April Fools Day 2001 Chris and Will released this as a prank on the 3dmm community. As we all know DD has now gained somewhat of a 'legendary' film status, and was heavily anticipated by many back in the day. When Adrian Pikios saw this it inspired him the make 'The Demon At Chris And Wills HQ'. A pretty funny thing here and it fooled/angered people in the masses. Download for a laugh. Review by Ben Rice.

Dialogue 2 Teaser
Directed by: Rick Trimble
Released: August 2002
Preview Don't let the title put you off! This is a brilliant little teaser. It's yet another spin-off of the default 3dmm movie 'Dialogue' - however, unlike all the others, this one actually looks as if it will be a worthwhile watch. The duel like scene shown works incredibly well and I really liked the dynamic camera angles used. I just hope that the movie doesn't turn out as pointless as all the other movies in the Dialogue series.

Dick Face
Directed by: BR
Released: September 2002
Preview A very funny and well animated movie from BR here. BR has amazing animating skills but always lacks in the plot part of a film. I know that this is a comedy short however so i'll let him off. I would really like to see a longer movie from BR as he has the potential. This made me laugh alot though.

Die Die Die
Directed by: Tuffe John
Released: January 2001
Preview Nice blood, gunfire fx, glasses, simple backdrop. It is someone's death. We don't find out why. Short and simple. A gunshot. That's it. He could have added more for atmosphere. No voices. Hearing the killer talk and the victim's deathcry would've been good. Gives a surreal and tragic feel - perfect. Too short but overall quite effective.

Die Hard 4
Directed by: Darin Van Thournout
Released: December 1998
Preview The director obviously thinks that a movie with good animation and scenes will go far. If you're a fan of these two aspects, download the movie. Die Hard 4 however lacks good acting and a reasonable soundtrack. It also features some pointless dialogue. Yes, the acting's bad and the story is heavily inspired by the first Die Hard movie. As a result, it is a paint-by-numbers clone but an entertaining one in the main but the lack of an ending with him being hailed hero just seems really odd for this genre.

Digital Combat
Directed by: Joshua Anger
Released: May 2001
Preview A short movie kind of like 'Eradication'. It has some very nice special effects, but there seems to be something missing from the movie - something which stops this movies from being really good. Anyhow, apparently a feature length movie of it will be coming out soon. UPDATE: It never did. Review by Will Cheyney.

Digouts

Preview W00T!! Funny stuff here. Very strange and weird and - but hilariously funny! It's a bit fast paced and it takes a while to get some of the jokes (or maybe that's just my puny mind) but its quite good otherwise. Download this if you like fast-paced funny movies.

Discontented
Directed by: Ben Williams
Released: March 2001
Preview I have come to love all of Ben Williams' films. Everyone of them are stunning - and this one is no exception. This is Ben Williams' 5th movie, and has the same look and feel to his others, which is by no means bad. Technically, the movie is great. With great scenery, music, sfx, camera movement and angles, the movie becomes instantly pleasing. The movie has quite a nice storyline too, and after a few minutes of watching, you really feel 'involved' with the characters and the plot - a classic sign of a well crafted movie. The storyline could have been developed more perhaps, but this doesn't stop me from highly recommending this movie. A definite download.

Disturbed
Directed by: Mike Kash
Released: August 2001
Preview To my knowledge, this is Mike Kash's first and only movie, at least that he's submitted. It's one of those 'flashback' movies, where you see the ending first, and the movie proceeds to tell the events leading up to it. A bit cliche, yes, but it works nonetheless. I applaud some of his unique effects ideas, such as the sunrise, which, mind you, didn't look the greatest, but is probably as close as you'll come in 3dmm. He seemed to have paid attention to detail on some parts of the scenery, but then completely neglected others. For instance a room might be very plain and boring, with only a few props. Yet those few props, he'd put great detail into. He just needs to find the balance between quantity and quality. The few times that he used a moving camera, he did so quite smoothly, and most of the camera angles had some thought put into them. I really must complain about the voice acting though... I mean its okay to do one or two voices yourself, but it gets annoying to have all the characters with pretty much the exact same voice. Music wise, the only song that really suited the atmosphere was the last one. He kind of ruined the feeling with the lets-kill-random-people-to-rap-music thing, but meh. Only other good point is his titles and credits. No I'm not mocking him... well okay maybe a little bit, but he did do a good job with the 3d words and such. So yes, this movie started out pretty good, then got lax. Then recovered, then got lax again, etc. So if you're looking for a little bit of drama, you may want to check this out, but it's by no means a substitute for movies like a Second Chance. But drama IS hard to do in 3dmm, so kudos goes out to the director for making an okay attempt.

Dog Shit
Directed by: Brad Ross
Released: July 2000
Preview An old film from Brad Ross here which shows that even though you can gloat about not stepping in dog poo, it's proving you didn't that makes things a bit crazy. Although the film's looks are pretty basic, it's the way the movie turned out that made me laugh. So this just goes to show that even though the film itself might look pretty bad, it's one of those of films that really makes you laugh at sheer stupidity. Review by Jonny Anson.

Domicile Destructo's Nightmare
Directed by: Apfigur
Released: May 2005
Preview It's odd to think that Swedes use programs hosted by blue Scots with pointy noses. Maybe they don't. Maybe Apfigur's copy of 3dmm is hosted by a husky blonde. Whatever the reason, he was drawn to make this small gem. Domicile Destructo has a nightmare. That's as much as I can give you without giving anything away. The brief story is enjoyably told, with scenes flashing by quickly, giving it a music video feel. The piece is well animated with smooth graphics and a sound track from The Mars Volta. The only qualm is the use of text boxes, but in a way they add to the charm. Actual vocals or, indeed, any sound outside of the music would change the movie's feel. A well constructed short, not to be missed! Review by Kayl.

Dominos (unfinished)
Directed by: Travis Wells
Released: October 2003
Preview Short, stupid, and confusing. Three words that best describe this movie. The main jist of the story is basically some guy getting mad at Dominos pizza so he gets a coupon for a free pizza. After this part though I got completely lost because the movie moved way too fast and just ended in the middle of nowhere. Not many sounds, no music, jerky animation, bad directing and horrid scenery. What's worse though is that there are word boxes instead of actual voices, not like that would have mattered though cause the movie moved too quick that even voices couldn't have saved the plot. I'm assuming this guys a newbie though so I don't wanna go all out. Better luck next time.

Doom
Directed by: JP
Released: April 2002
Preview When 'Doom' is mentioned, I think most people will understand what movie I'm talking about. Let's be honest, this movie has indeed been a great inspiration for others. JP was a new guy in the community when he shocked everyone with the release of this movie. Although the scenery and animation are great in this movie, there are no voices - something I kinda hate. Apart from this, the movie features a great soundtrack and good sound effects. Plot wise this movie is amazing too. It was something totally original that the community hadn't seen before. People that haven't seen this movie yet should download it immediately! A classic in 3dmm history.

It has a very real, very dark, beautiful feel to it showing off some excellent camera techniques and stunning scenery. JP has obviosuly given the movie a lot of thought and a very good plot starts to emerge. If you didn't download this during the Flim Festival the I can only suggest that you do. Right now.

Doom: Platinum Edition
Directed by: JP
Released: December 2002
Preview After the release of the original Doom, it came to light that a few of the plot details were a little hazy for the majority of people. I think this was the reason JP released this special edition of the movie to clear some things up. The platinum edition features a new intro and extra scenes. It also features voices and everything is explained in greater detail. Doom fans will defiantly like this and I recommend that everybody who had difficulties with the original to download this. It will add extra beauty to JP's masterpiece.

Doughboy's Hair-Raising Tale of General Enthusiasm
Directed by: Doughboy
Released: October 2004
Preview A modern twist on the classic tale of a man who was told he was going to die. Doughboy has spent quite a lot of time on this, and it shows. We get a very polished and professional film. From start to finish, I was glued to the screen. The characters are made to be superbly believable through brilliant voice acting and breathtaking animation. The only negative aspects I could find in this film were the volume of several voices, and actions that seemed out of place. Congrats Doughboy.

Preview Possibly the greatest 3D movie of all time. This classic has lasted the test of time for more than 5 years and still has top notch animation and scenery. This movie is pure genius because the plot is well thought out and clever. Although slightly predictable in places this could easily be a real film. If you haven't seen this movie, then download it now as there is nothing like it. By the way, this movie is so good afterwards you'll not want to make 3D movies as you think your stuff looks rubbish in comparison. Way ahead of it's time; GET IT NOW!

Drugheads
Directed by: Robert Domke
Released: January 1999
Preview A really good action movie here with some impressive animation. The movie follows two drug taking idiots with a van full of drugs, when they hit the road for Mexico. Drugheads has been dubbed many-a-time as the greatest 3dmm action movie ever created. Whatever your opinion on the movie though, there is no doubting that this is a 3dmm classic. Made WAY back in 1999, this movie boasts animation and scenery way ahead of its time. If you haven't seen this movie yet, now is the perfect opportunity - this shouldn't be missed.

Dunde #1
Directed by: Ben Wheele
Released: June 2001
Preview This is an original and great movie, which is also enjoyable to watch. About a really dumb man, trying to be taught the basics of the game 'know and run'. It has a very nice feel to it with it's 'Nutcracker suite' sound track, smooth animation, and it's 3d text popups for the dialogue. A very good movie that is nice and different to other 3D movies around at the moment, although, perhaps the ending isn't as good as it could have been. A recommend download.
