Half Life
Directed by: Rob
Released: April 1999
Preview Having never played the PC game, I can't tell you whether or not if this movie follows the original story closely or not. It must follow it somewhat, as all the voices used are obviously samples from the game - something that has been done before but has never sounded as professional as this. I believe this movie was release around 3 years ago now, and it's stood the test of time incredibly well. Animation and scenery isn't fantastic by today's standards but the important thing is that it works. Back in it's day I can imagine this being one hell of a flick. It's a shame that the concluding part never materialised. Defiantly worth a watch.

Halloween Sniper, The
Directed by: Will BR
Released: October 2001
Preview A nice, concise, and slick Halloween movie from Will here. I like the fast paced intro scenes followed by the equally swift execution of the short movie itself. Not much happens, but then this is a sniper movie so what do you expect? Review by Will Cheyney.

Handmade Character, The
Directed by: Ben Rice
Released: May 2005
Preview This movie is definitely Benís best movie to-date. The scenery is much better than in previous Ben Rice movies. Handmade-character-land was generally very well constructed, making good use of the expansions textures. Several members of the community assisted Ben with scenery creation including; Handmade Character, Mousenator and Jon Steele. The voice acting wasnít bad but wasnít that good either - some parts were fine, but other bits were very quiet making it a struggle to hear anything the characters were saying. I thought the plot was pretty solid, but perhaps not at all what you might be expecting. It also had a shorter runtime than I had envisaged. Even if you haven't liked any of Ben's previous work I believe this movie is still worth a look. Overall, a decent movie with a fairly good plot and some nice animation. Review by Matt Allen.

The Handmade Character has been hyped quite a bit, that's for sure. The danger in that, as everyone knows, is it can wreck a movie. It comes pretty close, but it seems Ben has skirted most of it. This is the first Ben Rice flick I've seen. Sorry Ben, haven't quite been able to finish Deputy. I'm working on it, but... In the meantime, this should help you out. The Handmade Character is a solid effort by Ben, at least as far as visuals go. HMC suffers from the lack of a solid plot and uneven emotions, while still being visually compelling. If there is one, I didn't get it. I'd like to think, though, that it was because there wasn't much of a solid plot to begin with. HMC is based on the sudden appearance of an HMC in the pre-made character world. For some reason, he is a god. Maybe because he can change, maybe because he's different, but whatever it is, it just so happens that he becomes... famous? So the HMC goes out into the world and is asked to do all sorts of things and is stared at, and stuff. Then he gets fed up with it and decides to go home. I missed what was wrong with the other world, and why everyone wanted him there in the first place. This rendered the closing monologue pointless and out of nowhere. Something I'd like to see in Ben's future is a well fleshed out script and plot. I'd like to see what he does with it. Ben's getting better here, from what I've seen of his last efforts. HMC doesn't have too many panning scenes in comparison with still shots. The action all happens in still shots. Ben does show a lot of promise with the cinematic effects he uses. Many panned scenes are well executed, and done properly. Some were done by people other than Ben, but they didn't completely stick out. The great reviews have been from people putting so much emphasis on visuals and improvement. I, as you can tell, do not focus on visuals nearly as much as others, but they still are a great thing to have. It's the visuals on this movie that are the star of the show. Sure, the HMC itself is not as smoothly composed as it might have been, and his animations don't stand up to character animators like Goro (ahh! Haven't reviewed one of Goro's yet!), but he shows remarkable progress and promise. Ben has taken into his young hands an ambitious project of making a movie with a HMC star, and come out mostly scathe free. To be fair, some of the scenery was created by other directors, but Ben has managed to make it so it's hard to tell the difference, so I applaud him. The dialogue was, in a word, uneven. There were some quiet parts, some loud parts, but far less popping than Deputy. Ben's use of voice actors was good, though there probably could have been some better acting from some of them. I'm not going to name them, because I didn't keep score. The music had me scratching my head a bit. It seemed a bit overblown for the plot that was in place. Lord of the Rings definitely didn't fit in. I think Ben could have done with some more subtle, appropriate music to back up the lacklustre plot. The Hand Made Character is a great improvement from Ben Rice's previous efforts. He shows great potential, and I'm looking forward to seeing him mature. HMC is not without some big faults, especially in the story-aspect. This movie could have been much better, but I look forward to what's to come. Review by Andrew Salter.

Hangman (with Unleash the Dragon Preview)
Directed by: Frogman
Released: January 2002
Preview From nowhere, Frogman released this cool title. It contains a preview for Frogman's forthcoming '007: Unleash the Dragon' movie, which looks to be very promising, and the main title, 'Hangman'. Hangman is a nice little drama with a decent original story. I really enjoyed it, and it was nice to have something a little different crop up. The music fitted well, and the voice acting was great. As for the preview, well, it was fantastic! There was some highly detailed explosions and scenery - all animated, fitting well with the classic James Bond theme. I just hope that is manages to achieve a James Bond "feel" and not turn out to be just another action flick with a James Bond badge stuck on it. Definitely a movie to keep an eye on.

Hard to Kill
Directed by: Spencer Crabb
Released: July 2001
Preview Very enjoyable and neatly animated film by Crabb. This movie wasn't continued (or so I've heard) and I want it to due to the fact that I enjoyed watching it and the action was great and it still sustained a plot at the same time. It's also pretty old and I think it's still very cool and I've watched it almost 10 times.

Directed by: Joe Douglas, Mr. Mong
Released: September 2004
Preview I've been meaning to add this movie to the Movie Archive for ABSOLUTELY ages! A chain movie by Jpro and Mr. Mong, both newbies at the time, this showed great skill and showed their potential. The scenery in the movie is great, making good use of the expansion and other techniques. The animation is great, and the voices and plot are funny. I would recommend you download this movie and that Jpro and Mr. Mong chronicle further adventures of Hatboy. PS. I'm in this movie, so it HAS to be good. Review by Tom Bown.

Hatred
Directed by: Oliver Bacon
Released: May 2001
Preview Here is the latest movie from Oliver Bacon. It is his next action project after 9mm, and very good it is! As you can see from the pictures the scenes are very visually stimulating, and are very interesting to watch. This movie impressed me alot because Oli went for the drama aspect of movie making more than action this time, and I think it paid off! The movie is first class, showing many quality hand-made scenes. Only a couple of criticisms, that the plot was sometimes quite hard to follow, and then movie ended rather abruptly. Still, it shines as an extremely good action short.

This clip is just a couple of scenes from his next movie, 'Haunted House' that looks pretty damn cool. The animation, as always, is smooth and fastly-paced. A definite download, even if it is only a scene or two, and look out for the movie when it is released!

Heavy Fatality (unfinished)
Directed by: Leslie Wai
Released: January 2004
Preview Another unfinished movie by Mr. Wai, and supposedly marking the end to his pretty short-lived 3dmm career. Border-lining on Pointless Action Movie (PAM) status, Heavy Fatality is a non-stop action romp. The combination of Leslie's stylised sphere-built characters and Maltby-esq animation are all the makings necessary for a great futuristic war type movie. There's something about the action that adds a bizarre sense of realism. A fantastic start - just a shame it wont get finished!

High Noon
Directed by: Josh Rosenbohm
Released: December 2002
Preview Hnyuk Nyuk. This was pretty funny. It's basically a cowboy movie that's pretty 'serious' until the ending. The cowboys are hand made, and the director did a pretty good job on them. Custom guns too, that also looked good. But the animating of them wasn't very good at all. The whole movie is basically just to make a little joke, and is worth a download.

Highway 57
Directed by: Rhys Halliwell
Released: November 1999
Preview This film lives up to the hype and is a nice concise horror movie. It's a serious movie and does very well considering the limitations of 3D movie maker. I think the preview gave too much away though which spoilt the movie a little. It still stands as one of the best examples of 'horror' in 3D Movie Maker.

Preview The best part of this job is being able to rip apart people's movies. However, in a movie such as this, I don't have to, let me just go over the facts of this movie for you. One, it's not funny, not even at all. Two, the credits go for over 75% of the movie. Three, the producers claim to be 14 and have deep voices. From this I believe you can make your own judgment, here's mine however:

Hobo Talk 2
Directed by: Russel Stepan
Released: April 2004
Preview The sequel to Russel's short, 'Hobo Talk'. This one is alot more funny and has a slight storyline to it. Obviously, as the title suggests, there are loads of jokes in it that take the piss out of tramps/hobos - much like Will Cheyney's 'Bobz Bar' movies. Jokes such as drinking piss instead of for lemonade, stealing peoples wallets and using their money as toilet paper (why they don't just keep the money I really don't know), celebrating over a whole used condom etc. etc. - the list goes on. There's a funny ending leaving us with a small cliffhanger at the end. A enjoyable movie with jokes, gore and some average hand made scenery, and like the first Hobo Talk, it takes place in the alleyway in 3dmm's very own Misty City. A recommended download if you want a good laugh!

Holy Poop it's Christmas
Directed by: Tuna Hematoma, Qaz Askew
Released: December 2000
Preview A short, old and random Christmas movie by Tuna and Qaz (normal Tuna style then!). Despite it being utterly pointless, I couldn't help but laugh at it - Tuna's sense of humour is an acquired taste, mind. Again, as-per-usual in a Tuna flick, the voice acting is what generally drives and fuels the humour. This is quite a funny movie, but you may find that you have trouble keeping up with what everyone is talking about. It's a worthy download if you like Tunas work, or if you just want a short laugh.

Preview What the funk. I... just... it... what the funk?? Very silly, a little on the humorous side too, but it's not exactly a masterpiece. It's basically about a particularly obese guy called Bob who lets himself into some family's house and eventually takes it over. After it started out pretty good, it got kinda stupid eventually, especially the ending. An adequate watch. Review by Will Bamber.

Preview With the previous Homeland movies in the Homeland series being well below par, I wasn't expecting much from the third installment. However, after hearing that the movie was directed by Matt McGowan, maybe, just maybe, the movie may be something a bit more special. And by'gum it is better... The story takes place before the other two Homelands and is streets ahead in terms of character development. The scenery ain't bad, but is more than adequate. The music was also well selected, and suited the movies style. A pretty decent movie, which is worth the download if your looking for something new.

Honochio 1
Directed by: Mickazee
Released: March 1998
Preview The first episode of the classic 3dmm series by Mickazee, which unfortunately has not stood the test of time very well. The hand made character design is ok, but the scenery and sounds are horribly out of date. Add that to the fact that the off-beat humor is often hard to grasp, and you have yourself a movie that may have been considered good back in 1998, but nowadays, it just can't stand up to the big boys. Back in it's day, Mickazee was pioneering animation innovation in 3dmm with such a movie, so in that respect this review is a little unfair. Something you may want to keep in mind.

Preview Then adventures of our character continue. Slightly better than the original, an attempt has been made at some sort of plot this time around, as opposed to random skits. Well, technically that's the case, you can't really tell. Scenery was slightly better; music ok, (except for 'Song 2'), and there was some nice animation in places. Still doesn't really stand the test of time, but it is bearable.

Preview This movie was AWESOME. Mickazee redeems himself from the last two efforts to make a true 3dmm classic. The plot involves Big-nose trying to take over the world using a brain controlling device. The scenery still sucks, but the animation was good. The voices were funny too, featuring Mickazee himself and a younger Dean Francis. It's a very entertaining movie, with a much more interesting story, improved animation and better use of sound (both FX and voicing). A classic and another definite download.

Horny and the Dead Remake
Directed by: Kim Turley
Released: January 2004
Preview Here we have Jeff Ching's "Horny and the Dead", redone by Kim Turley. I didn't care much for the original, nor did many others. But I must say Turley did a great job on giving it some life. I mean he didn't go and revamp the WHOLE thing, basically he just saw the obvious flaws and went "Damn...that sucks..." then fixed it. Most noticable are the scenes. Where stock scenes are used, he changed camera angles every so often. Doesn't sound like much, I know, but in a movie like this, it makes a huge difference. In other stock scenes, he covered some things to make it semi-hand-made. For instance, in the city scene, he covered everything but the park bench with polygons - just to make it not quite so n00bish-looking. Other tweaks include more detailed props, smoother animations (i.e, slightly better fight scenes), dicks suddenly popping in and out of zipperes....*kaff*....etc. I couldn't pick up any changes with audio, but he did add this nifty soundtrack gizmo thingimabobber (yes, thats the professional term) so you can browse the music. Well... I thought it was neat... Anyways, a readme would've been nice to point out all the changes, but whether you've seen the original Horny and the Dead or not, this is a good thing to download.

Personally, I suggest you do just so you can feel what I am feeling right now. From what I can tell this is a Kirby movie, but I have absolutely no idea what's going on, so that's just an educated guess. The cheesey music is the saving grace of this film.

How to Save the World
Directed by: Thomas Saville
Released: November 2004
Preview A very 'cute' fairwell movie from Thomas. It's tragic to see such a brilliant writer, voice actor and director leave the community. We're assured that this isn't a direct sequel to 'The Knights of Camelot', but instead, a 7-minute short including the same characters, etc etc. One quiet night after completing all their kitchen chores, the sink starts talking to Sir Bugger and Sir Flodbottom. Guessing that the noise is coming from the dungeons they go and investigate. OK actually, I'm gonna stop there - I wont say anymore than that so I do not to ruin it for you. Rest assured though, it is an extremely good watch :o) It is humorous throughout and it never became a bore - I particularly liked the continuation of the correction joke, 'Time of Old' to 'Times of Now'. The voice acting/dialogue was spot-on and Tom's stylised HMCs and glorious scenery will never grow old. The only niggle I have with is that because I waned to enjoy it so much, the first time I watched I missed a lot of the lines! A definite download.

Preview A very old movie, that seems to have been lost over time. I believe this is the only site with this series starter on - but that may be purposeful... It feels like someones first movie - someone's really rubbish first movie. To put a mark on the movies visuals would be unfair, simply because of it's age. Let's just say that it isn't the best you've ever seen. I didn't find any of the jokes funny and I don't like movies that use soundbites from real movies. If you are a genuine fan of the series then this might be for you, but I really can't recommend it to anyone else.
