Mad - Episode 1
Directed by: Martyn Breed
Released: November 2000
Preview Crazy crazy stuff. Indeed, you may describe it as 'Mad'. I'm not sure whether it is molded on MAD Magazine but features a bunch of silly things not to do under any circumstances. Animation is simple stuff and it's not a laugh riot of a movie. But if you want a couple of little chuckles perhaps, this movie fits the bill. The MIDIs weren't too obtrusive either but WAV music would have lifted it as would some more voices. Future episodes should hopefully be more entertaining.

Magic
Directed by: Brad Ross
Released: November 2002
Preview Oh ye classic Magic. A short and highly eventful tale of Australian accents, dwarves and magical beings of all shape, size and stature. It's hardly a powerful tale of the planet's essence and how to control it, but it's definitely some funny tosh indeed. There's quite a few dull parts, but it'll be enough to sit through that and enjoy the loud, over-exaggerated voices breezing through your speakers and filling your ears with humor. Good stuff.

Manhunt Part 1
Directed by: Oliver Wigdor
Released: October 2004
Preview A decent peice of work here by my old friend Ollie. This short unfinished movie shows that Ollie is indeed capable of creating some beautiful scenery and handmade characters. Almost everything in this movie is made out of the expansion textures, it's obvious that this was Ollies first time using them and so he... well... went nuts. Because this movie is unfinished you don't really get the hang of the story, but some of it reminded me of Ninja Gaiden, not to mention that there are voices taken from it aswell. I also felt that the movie heavily 'borrowed' ideas from a number of other movies. Don't get me wrong though, I'm the only person (apart from Ollie himself) who knows how long the director spent on making this movie. I know because I was there. I sat right next to him helping him make the movie. However when it comes to voice acting, Ollie and myself aren't ideal choices. Although the lines were edited with echoes etc., they were still not right for the movie. This seemed alot more like an animation test then a movie but it does show what my old friend is really has talent at scenery. It's a shame he's gone. Review by Ben Rice.

Man on the Edge
Directed by: Dave Smith, Andrew Murphy
Released: November 2004
Preview Dave Smith brings us another very dark film about teenagers attending a juvenile school. The dialogue in this film has it's ups and downs, and the voice acting is the same way. At times, good, at other times, brutally bad. Characters are quite original, and I think this is what will keep your interest. The animation and scenery are brutally bad, even for the time this movie was made. Only watch this movie if you liked other Dave Smith films.

Mario Goes Crazy
Directed by: James Cadden

Preview Hehe - the title says it all. Mario goes crazy. Short and sweet, Mario finally see's sense and finishes off all his Mushroom Kingdom buddies. All the hand-made characters look true to their 'real' counterparts and the death sequences are nice and messy. Lacks and real content, but works well as a pointless action movie with some of your favorite Nintendo characters thrown in.

Directed by: Hand Made Character

Preview A short but wonderfully sweet movie from the newbie Hand Made Character. Based on the Nintendo Mario games (I swear I recognised a few of the references from Yoshi's Island on the SNES!), Hand Made Character has been extremely bold and re-created your favorite characters in 3dmm. The animation is second to none, and absolutely stunning. I can't believe newbie's are creating movies like these, the standards are getting stupidly high. And the filesize is tiny for the length (admittedly; the movie does use midis). Just... just watch, you'll see something you like if not love.

The scenery is stunning and for the most part the animation is smooth and excellent. It also gives us enough of the plot to get us excited, but not enough to spoil it. This does a great job at hyping the movie and I believe that The Mario Saga 2 will be one of the best movies of 2005. Great job! Review by Tom Bown.

Mask of Rage, The
Directed by: Andres De La Hoz
Released: September 2000
Preview A very old movie by Andres de la Hoz, 'The Mask of Rage' is a long and sometimes frustrating movie that follows the story of a troubled detective as he fights off an elusive killer. The story mixes together a blend of mystery, action, suspense, and emotion to get its point across. This blending works fairly well, but the whole movie is cursed with sup-par screenwriting. If one were to run a wordcount on the script, 'fuck' would be the most frequently occurring word. While this may have been adlibbing, or a way to make the movie seem more hardcore than it really is, it betrays the movie's age as being an early work. Thankfully de la Hoz' scripts have since become more well rounded and much better written. The presentation is trademark (albeit early) de la Hoz, with well composed shots and cameras that only move when they have to, and then in sensible manners. This is the strongest aspect of the film, as the director is very conscious of his camera and his artistic motivations. Visually, this is a film from before the expansion pack days. But trademark of Andres' works, most of the scenery is composed from squares and spheres rather than text. This makes for a consistent visual style that is better off than having partially textured scenes. The voice acting is mixed. This is one of the few films where de la Hoz uses his own voice. The problem is, it's often hard to hear the dialogue with the mismatched volumes of music drowning it out. Another problem is Jeff Ching's voice acting. It's hard to take the part seriously when some of the dialogue is delivered in such a hokey fashion. Some parts are downright laughable, including the "Noooo" yell. He's balanced out by some good quality voice acting by the other parts, though. Overall, the Mask of Rage is a worthwhile download for those who are looking to collect The Complete Works of Andres de la Hoz (which would make a wicked DVD release). Review by Andrew Salter.

Massacre
Directed by: Jeremy Dick
Released: August 2004
Preview Okay, here's a remake of a remake of an old crappy movie that Jeremy created back in the day when he was a mere n00by. It's still crappy, but granted, it's better. Nothing really wonderful in it... some simple custom scenery to replace the stock ones he used from the first two. Because like... we all know you're uber 1337 if you use custom scenery, right? So yeah, animation and scenery was barely tolerable. Voice and music was barely tolerable. Story was barely tolerable. And up here in Canada, the term is "HOSER". Unless you meant to say poser. In which case, that makes no sense whatsoever, and you suck monkey balls. Anyways, the first movie made in 1998, and the remake made in 1999 are both also included, as well as an excus- I mean a readme from the director. Personally, I like the 1999 version better... So yeah, I've seen worse, but it's still pretty crappy.

When it became clear to me that this movie didn't have any voices, good scenery or good animation I almost stopped watching... I didn't though and persevered hoping that it may get better. Unfortunately, it didn't and the only part I couldn't help liking was the car chase; bizarrely, I quite enjoyed it. Overall though it was poo, and even though the director is a newbie I think he could at least taken some tips from a few other movies beforehand - watching them closely and getting into custom scenery and animation. Better luck next time

Matrix Revelation Trailer
Directed by: Greg Peck
Released: March 2003
Preview The Matrix. If its been done once in 3dmm, it's been done a thousand times - but never has it been any good. Until now. Large amounts of skill are required to make it at all convincing, and it looks like the director, Greg Peck, might be able to pull some thing decent off - I'd never even heard of the director before. OK, so the animation and scenery isn't AMAZING, but it works well. Greg has obviously tired to re-create the look and feel of a real Matrix movie, he has even managed to re-create a few scenes in 3dmm with great accuracy. One thing that did spoil this trailer is the god-awful voice acing - it was atrocious! Whether this will be a hindrance in the final movie, and indeed whether the actual movie will be any good, I don't know. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

McBain
Directed by: Tom Simpson
Released: September 2001
Preview Last update, I reviewed two appalling movies from Tom (Noo Noo and Doo Doo 1 & 2), and another preview for his upcoming movie McBain, which look a lot more promising. The slapstick featuring the comical Austrian hero from the Simpson's - Mcbain, stars in his very own 3D movie. The jokes weren't bad, and I liked the way how it closely reassembled the actual humor of McBain in the Simpsons. The scenery was custom made throughout, some of which was very nice. It appears that Tom is getting better at making 'funny' movies in 3dmm...

However, none of them are really that good (have a look at the horrors of the Noo Noo + Doo Doo series). There may be a little light at the end of the tunnel though. Enter McBain. Yes you've got it, the comical Austrian hero from the Simpson's stars in his very own 3D movie. This trailer does very little, other than to let us know that such a movie exists, and is in production. Therefore I can't really tell you what it is about... just expect a comedy rather than a high octane action romp. If Tom can get the humor right, this could be a winner.

Preview Back in the day, this was a bloody amazing movie. I remember it being very funny and well paced. Movies rarely make me laugh out loud, but this one really did. This is definitely, in my opinion, one of the greatest comedy movies ever created in 3dmm. There are just a few little niggles which stop it from being brilliant. By today's standards though it really doesn't cut it - but for anyone who can appreciate this, it'll bring a nostalgic tear to your eye. Review by Will Cheyney.

Mean Bread
Directed by: Demented Ferret, Russ Stepan
Released: August 2005
Preview This FF has really started with a bang! The third movie of the Festival is this wonderfully hilarious movie from Ferret and Russ, about a hard-ass piece of bread and the struggles he faces through life. The comedy aspects are very funny, especially all the YTMND references. The use of v3dmm is fucking excellent, all the characters are textures and this leads to a 3dmm movie that actually looks like an animated cartoon. The scenery is bland in most places but works towards the style of the movie, the animation was great, and the voices were damn funny, Russ as Mean Bread truly shining. Overall, this is the best short of 2005 so far, a hilarious cartoon that shows off not only the wonders of v3dmm, but of Ferret and Russ when they collabarate. Let's hope the Mean Bread full-length gets released some time. Review by Tom Bown.

A thoroughly funny comedy, Mean Bread’s Totally Bitchin’ Adventure of stinky doom is both a demonstration of v3dmm skills and the comedy of Russ Stepan and Demented Ferret, which is apparently his real name. Though it tends to look more like a Flash cartoon than 3dmm at times, the fact that it is funny in a comedic rather than a slapstick sense is refreshing and welcome. The story involves a piece of toast who has an anger management problem. He breaks his alarm clock and is forced to go to the store to get another one, which sets off a chain of events that set the plot in motion. Though a little unclear in the middle, the plot contains many opportunities for comedy, which it never fails to exploit. The presentation is smooth and clean, with a cinematic camera that better fits the mood than the handheld look would have. Camera work is done in moderation, making it a pleasing experience to watch. The visuals have much of the appeal and almost all of the problems with the film. V3dmm is the name of the game here, and Ferret and Stepan have poured many resources into giving it a fresh, original look. The main characters are custom textures on flat tiles, which has mixed benefit. In one way it is thoroughly original, allowing hand-drawn characters into 3dmm for the first time. However, these characters tend to look more like simple sprites than actual 3d characters. The cell-shaded look of the film benefits from this style, but at times these sprites became distorted, muddying up the look a bit. The sound is very well done. The voices were excellent. Many were done by Stepan (Mean Bread did sound quite Colombian at times…) as well as other members of the community to great effect. The music also augmented the film, with tracks ranging from the Beatles to one very exaggerated scream. It all pulls together to bring a fresh and honestly comedic film into the community with a fiercely new style and great energy. This is a highly recommended download. Review by Andrew Salter.

The highly anticipated movie by Russ and Ferret is here, and the wait was worth it. This movie was fabulous! It has an original and hilarious plot about a piece of flying toast with an anger problem who lost his eyebrow and means of dexterity; he sets forth upon a 'truly bitchin' adventure' to get it back. For many reasons I kept thinking this was a Flash movie because of it's 'flat' 2D look - even the animation looks like something you'd expect to see in Flash. The reason it's like this? Because of v3dmm - it really does make the movie. This movie is pure gold and truely shows what you can do with v3dmm. Here's to a sequal! A must download. Review by Ben Rice.

It'd be good if Steven did a full mech movie, I reckon it'd be sweet. Steven Astill displays his animating talents with his little mech warrior. Marvelous background scenes, but doesn't last long enough (a fact he is well aware of).

Medieval Travels with Gety and Buz Episode 1
Directed by: Chris Burrage
Released: June 2005
Preview Getysburg and Buzvonlurt have pulled together this entertaining fare in a fairly short time. The story involves two medieval men trying to flee the plague, settle, and raise their families. Of course, it wouldn't be a comedy if it went smoothly, and it doesn't. What ensues is a funny mix of bizzarre circumstances and lots of trouble. The presentation is where the movie suffers the most. The camera angles are mostly stagnant and generally poorly composed. A lot of times the foreground gets confused with the background, and some weird perspectives cause some head scratching. The visuals themselves boast custom modelling and texturing. These are generally good, though it would be nice to see some of the atrocious wood textures replaced using v3dmm too. Voicing was good throughout. The story demands rapid British dialogue, and the voice actors fit wonderfully into their part. The music was also well done. The light and happy tudor music juxtaposed with zombie fare really set the mood for this comical tale. You can't go wrong with watching some wacky humor and decent texturing, so give this a download for a good laugh. Review by Andrew Salter.

Medieval Travels with Gety and Buz Episode 2
Directed by: Chris Burrage

Preview The next chapter in Getysburg and Buzvonlurt's comedy series, Episode 2 is shorter and less funny than the first episode. The story is moving along as the two are still looking for a way to beat the plague (or at least outrun it) but the story doesn't progress much over the movie's short length. The only major development is the duo arrives in Ireland. The movie is still good to look at. This directing duo does some nice environmental work, lending some life to things not often achieved in 3DMM. The voices are still top-notch, with Gety and Buz making good use of comic silences, as well as humerous dialogue. The problem with this installment is it's too short for anything worthwhile to happen. The episode ends before it begins, which makes for a less satisfying experience. Still, Episode 2 is the most worthwhile series to watch since Community Clash. Review by Andrew Salter.

This is an epic action/mafia movie and undoubtedly still a benchmark for all movies of this genre. It is hugely sophisticated, and certainly has one of the strongest plots of any 3dmm movie. The end is also surprisingly moving considering it's just a 3dmm movie. The voice talent is superb and the dynamic camera work added mountains of atmosphere. As with most of Dustin's movies however, it isn't very well optimised - hence the HUGE file size. Overall: superb.

Preview Sadly unfinished, Dustin has released MOS 2 to the community. In my opinion, it stands as one of the greatest 3dmm movies ever. The story and character development is superb - never before have characters been so well depicted that they could almost be real. The drama bits worked really well, and the voice acting was second to none. People who say that all the characters sounded too samey should listen to Hollywood mafia gangsters - they DO all sound pretty similar (yes I know they aren't real, but MOS is also fictional). Animation wise, again, this movie is fantastic. I noticed that very little camera movement was used, most of the atmosphere is created through dynamic camera angles. The scenery was above average throughout, but never really had any 'WOW' factor. Even if it is unfinished it still ends very well. Everyone should download this instant classic - the download is worth it. I just wish Dustin wasn't leaving the community...

Mental Cases
Directed by: Ben Williams
Released: November 2000
Preview Very moody and effectively directed drama inspired from a Wilfred Owen poem. The poem is displayed at the start and then a narrator speaks it throughout the film which is set in 1916 at the Battle of the Somme. It is about the futility of war and what it does to those who fight in it. The narration was powerfully voiced and the direction slick. The only thing that could have been done to make it better was not display the poem at the start, really. A very in-depth view into war (and into a soldier's head). Ben's latest movie contains a great story, animation and also has to be the most 'real movie-like' 3DMM movie I've seen. Final Verdict: Straightforwardly brilliant.

Preview Many people have been divided over this movie. Was it a solid entertaining action movie, or just another stupid PAM? It's obvious that Kim doesn't want this movie to be anything other then brainless, but what it does it does very well. This movie has been about 5 years in the making, being remade from the unfinished version back in 1998, and it shows. Some of the scenery is very poor, and some is excellent. The hand-made guns are simply excellent, the best ever made in 3dmm. There are also some original ideas and camera work. Unfortunately, the movie is let down by its slow pacing, and it also went on for a bit too long. Still, it's a recommended download for action lovers, although I would take 2 points off the score if you hate PAM's.

Preview Well after much advertising on the BB the preview is here. It's not bad - but its not great. Not in the same league as 'The French Teacher' or anything. Most previews we see have sparse amounts of action and boorish lengthy scripts to read. But here we see a bit of the action involved. However, the animation is jumpy and not that smooth, throughout the movie. Overall I would say the preview has lacked in scenery. I think that this movie may suffer from the same problem that UNO did - being over-hyped, and unless the action you see here now becomes 5 times better on the full release, it will be a huge disappointment.

Missing
Directed by: Mike Storch
Released: April 2005
Preview The last piece of work we saw from Mike was 'Gnomes' which had brilliant cinematography and was in all honesty, an excellent 3dmm horror. Mike also knows how to add drama to a 3dmm film. It's the combination of drama plot twists that make this movie alot better than Gnomes. It depicts the story of a man being held captive and tortured in someone's basement; Meanwhile his wife is searching for him. That's all I'm going to say for now so that I don't ruin anything for you. The 'twist' I keep going on about is an under-current running beneath the story - it's brilliant and something you genuinely won't suspect. Down to the technical details now. As with most of Mike's movies the scenery is beautiful and animation is smooth and fluid. The voices are perfectly matched to the characters and fitted well with the movies atmosphere. There really isn't anything I can fault. This is a must download for anyone in the community, especially for fans of Andres' scripts (he wrote the story) and/or of Mike's previous filography. Definitely something not to miss! Review by Ben Rice.

Missing is an atmospheric thriller backed by a compelling story and chilling dialogue. Mike Storch both borrows from and departs from the style of his previous thriller, Gnomes. Like Gnomes, Missing relies less on flashy animation and more on music and dialogue to propel the story forward. Missing employs a strong story penned by Andres de la Hoz, that follows two parallel stories that seemingly go together. The main story is of a prisoner, and a sadistic kidnapper, who establishes atmosphere early on with a chilling monologue about what kinds of torture he will inflict on his victim. The second story involves a wife searching for her missing husband, presumably one of the two characters involved in the first plot. These stories flash back and forth, building tension as we discover that the outcome of one story will ultimately determine the end for the other story. There are some holes, or unclear moments. Why has the man been kidnapped? What are the motivations? While these may have been purposefully left out to allow for interpretation, they leave the viewer slightly confused at the end. This is Mike Storch's strong point. Every camera angle was added for a reason. Storch doesn't resort to frivolous camera moves, or splashy scenery, because he doesn't need it. His camera work is atmospheric, evoking a claustrophobic, doomed feeling that serves the film wonderfully. I'd also like to note the chilling montage of torture tools shown near the beginning. This caused my stomach to drop, and set me up for the entire rest of the film. I've already mentioned that Storch doesn't indulge in splashy effects. His scenery is believable, consistent, and solid. Some effects are a little out-dated, such as the explosion-based rain, and some lacking textures. Otherwise, Storch's visual style of Gnomes returns in many of the outdoor scenes. The inclusion of suburban and domestic scenery does allow some departure from the constant rural setting of Gnomes. Andrew James Thomas has once again come through to arrange and produce (correct me if I'm wrong, please) a suspenseful, atmospheric score. Thomas is a fan of Silvestri, but it doesn't get boring. The score is one of the strongest aspects of the film, so strong that when I had to pause the movie, I rewound back to the music cue to experience it fully. Voices were well done. The torturer's speech stood out as a delightfully terrifying bit of dialogue. All the voice actors did Andres' script justice. Though the payoff at the ending was not as satisfying as one may have liked, Missing is a strong outing from Dark Gnome Productions. From the suspenseful story, to the atmospheric staging, Missing was well worth the download, and a movie that fans of Storch's work and thrillers should definitely take the time to see. Did I mention it's atmospheric? Review by Andrew Salter.

Mission Impossible: Termination (unfinished)
Directed by: Stanley Pennant
Released: January 2001
Preview This was Stan's very first movie but will definitely not be finished. Normally, widescreen is okay but this is ridiculous. Animation otherwise ok. The Limp Bizkit MI Theme - very cool. Looks like it could have been good judging from the stuff in the intro.

Mistake
Directed by: Mike Storch
Released: October 2003
Preview "Mistake" is a very short (about one minute long) film about a man who apparently kills his wife and newborn son. It is presented in a very unusual, almost preview-like format. No background is given regarding the story, and the film plays in a very slow and eerie tone. The music adds to the film well, and the few sound effects are well placed. About half of the movie consists of plain text, showing the man's thoughts, and in the few places where custom scenery is shown, it is merely average, but generally goes by too quickly to really be seen well anyway. There really is no animation in the movie, most of it is just quick cuts. While the idea behind "Mistake" is interesting, the format really just doesn't work very well in 3DMM. Up until the final scene, I was unsure whether this was a full movie or only a preview. This may be worth a download, but isn't something you're going to want to keep.

Directed by: James Burgon
Released: August 2002
Preview A very fast-paced, cartoony animation. It's all over very quickly, and I must confess that I found the introduction to the movie better and more enjoyable than what comes after... I found the lack of sound effects in places kind of annoying and it kind of ruined the movie. Anyways, James never intended it to be taken seriously - I think he made purely out of his love with Sega and Sonic.

Moderately Confused
Directed by: James Quicksell
Released: November 2004
Preview The sequel to the enjoyable Simpson-esque, 'Slightly Confused'. The pleasantly enjoyable 'Moderately Confused' picks up where the last movie left off, with a sackful of laughs and a fine hour-and-a-half story about a bag-headed man and his exciting adventures with his 'team' of computer geek's, narcoleptics, drug dealers and various other hilarious characters. The movie itself is a fine afternoon rumpus, and the brilliant (albeit a bit hit-and-miss) comedy adds to this little gem. However, before you click that link and download this gigantic-sized movie, be prepared that you're not going to split your sides in hysterics and fall down into a bawling, crumpled heap on the floor. This isn't a stand up show. You're not supposed to go into theatre over this movie bursting your lungs with laughter. A giggle here and there, a good chuckle and a few bursts of 'Ha's over the ending is as much as you can expect from this comedy. And you know what? It doesn't matter. Not one bit. Because while you're watching this movie you can't help but get attached to it. The characters, the storyline itself, and all the little gags in between. It's ENJOYABLE. Isn't that what movies are all about? If you liked 'Slightly Confused', you'll immediately fall in love with this long-awaited sequel. A wonderful performance by Mr. Quicksell. Marvelous. Review by Will Cheyney.

Moderately Confused is an enjoyable feature-length caper comedy following on the heels of Slightly Confused. It's clear that Quicksell has gone through much improvement since Slightly Confused, as this sequel expands and betters the first several times over. With well developed characters, a good, sometimes suspenseful, plot, and plenty of outstanding voice acting, Moderately Confused was for the most part an hour and a half well spent. The story of Moderately Confused is a familiar enough premise to anyone who has seen any of the great caper comedies of the past 50 years. Moderately Confused takes its inspiration from Ocean's Eleven, but adapts the formula to create a unique experience for anyone whose seen these movies. The plot is straightforward: thief gets out (read: escapes) from jail, meets up with fellow organiser, hatches scheme, finds partners/fiancee, and the plot rolls forward from there. It's not all straightforward, I must add. There are several plot twists and interesting devices that Quicksell uses to complicate his story, with the plot picking up steam when the thief's crush turns out to be the museum curator. This sets a whole lot of actions in motion that propel us through the end of the movie. There are several plot points that didn't work out. The Taxi-scene ran on a whole 5 minutes, but nothing came of it except a drive across town. The sodomy scene also didn't click. Basically, it didn't make sense to be thrown in to these otherwise well developed characters. It just seemed... out of place. Part of the fun of this film was the use of creative camera moves. I'd like to highlight the incredibly cool opening titles as particularly representative of this skill. The camera, for the most part, behaves as a real camera would, and Quicksell's use of zooms and pans is effective, but never distracting. The robbery sequence, particularly, is backed up by smart, smooth camera movements that closely mirror the atmosphere of the scene. Incidentally, that's what a camera is... supposed to do... moving on. Moderately Confused boasts some impressive examples of expansion textures, text-based scenery, and clever use of the built-in 3dmm props cabinet. The scenery isn't perfect. There are several examples of blank land and bland-looking locations, but not enough to be truly distracting. Overall, the visuals were well thought-out, and skilfully implemented. There are some areas that could have done with a bit of polishing, but in the grand (1 1/2 hour) scheme of things, those moments don't stick out. Plot and sound are the highlights of the movie. Quicksell has compiled a worthy score to back up his movie. From the smooth jazz rifts of Ocean's Eleven to the classic Mission Impossible theme, to Queen's legendary, and still kicking after all these times played in football stadiums classic "We are the Champions," Moderately Confused' music design matches the action spot-on. As far as effects go, Moderately Confused uses a good, though far from perfect implementation of sound effects. There are many scenes where lack of sound is sorely apparent, one occurring at the very beginning (helicopters are pretty loud, right?) The voice acting makes up entirely for this lacking. All the voice actors, and James, knew their parts well and pulled them off to flatter the comedic script. Most notable is Klaymen as the terret's affected insider, providing some very funny moments, and Quicksell himself, as the bank robber. His use of comedic timing, especially in the closing monologue, are hi-lights of the movie. Some of Quicksell's characters do begin to sound alike, a discrepancy that could have been remedied. Though slightly confusing (haha, I'm so witty) at first, these characters don't last very long in the story. Also of note are several throwaway lines from 3DMM's line of default dialogue. Moderately Confused runs at a hefty hour and a half, so expect to spend some quality time with your computer screen. Though the length is a triumph, it can be daunting and could have been cut down with the elimination of scenes that just didn't flow with the film. Overall, Moderately Confused is a great character-driven comedy. The movie's character development should be studied by aspiring directors looking for ways to connect the audience to the characters in ways that are extremely difficult to do in 3d Movie Maker. A worthwhile download, for a nice comedic experience. Review by Andres Salter.

Moderately Confused 2nd Teaser
Directed by: James Quicksell
Released: February 2004
Preview This is a teaser for the the cleverly titled sequel to 'Slightly Confused' (which can be found in the movie archive), although this should really be classed as a trailer. The original was fairly mediocre, but we have been promised bigger and better things this time round. This teaser looks set to anything but disappoint. The character introductions were very nicely done and everything looked solidly constructed.

Preview This is the teaser for the sequel to 'Slightly Confused'. After breaking out of jail, the Bank Robber decides to drop by his old friend Shady's apartment where the two of them devise a plan to steal an extremely expensive gem from the city museum with a team of mismatched "professionals". It's very short, very cliché, and everything looks a little on the bland side, with very little detail or effort apparent. Still, you never know, the final movie may surprise us.

Released: September 2001
Preview This preview is simply stunning! The scenes are some of the best 3dmm has ever seen (reflection techniques). The animation is good, although the slow motion card has probably been a bit over used in 3dmm now. One animation technique which it utterly amazing, is Adams animated liquid. It is done so well, it actually looks like it's flowing! All the camera angles used are great too. One room I know for sure has been modeled on an actual room in Adams house. This is movie that will be worth downloading even if you have a 14k modem. You wont to miss this movie.

Altogether, a very funny, yet slightly depressing movie from Tuna and Pearch. I was very impressed when I first saw this, good story. Final Verdict: Marvelous. When's the next one coming out, Tuna?

Preview This is the sequel to Mom's Drunk and Dad's in Jail by Tuna Hematoma. After having seen the first two 'episodes' and found them thorally entertaining, I found this not as funny. The movies is a bit short, and I didn't find myself laughing like I did with the previous ones. I also thought the ending was a little rushed too, which spoilt an already average movie. However, the movie contains some nice scenery. Nicely detailed and nicely composed. Not a terrible movie, but not great. Worth a look though.

Mortis Motel
Directed by: Richard Bevis
Released: April 2005
Preview I am going to say exactly what I said in Richard's 'Dark Forest Trailer' review. "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." Yep. My feelings towards this movie are precisely the same. It's not very good, but it isn't a total abomination. Scenery is simple, but adequate, and the plot was fairly cliche. Don't loose your motivation Richard, I'm not here to put you off. Take what I'm saying on-board and use it to your advantage! Review by Will Cheyney.

Directed by: Tuffe John
Released: October 2000
Preview Very weird this and nothing really all that marvelous. A bit too much reliance on the 3dmm-included scenes though he does admit how crap things are in the name. One thing I did like though was the handmade boxer but this was too short and if he had been actually fighting someone it would have been much cooler. John makes an exceptional amount of fun of himself at the beginning of this set of clips. Rather good. Can be summed up in my Final Verdict: Mediocre stuff. Not overly extraordinary.

Myth (unfinished)

Preview This would be been one of Adrian's 'big' movie's if had he actually finished it. As it stands though, it's pretty good anyway. The animation is a little sketchy in some places - basic and quirky; however, the plot, pace and action help it all along and make this a very enjoyable movie. The movies action scenes are great, and there are references to some Hollywood movies, all sci-fi, such as, Star Wars and Starship Troopers (just the one's I picked up on). This would be an all time classic if it was completed, and I sequel wouldn't go amiss either. The animation today does seem a little outdated, but the movie is host to a couple of fairly impressive scenes (see screenshot). A definite download.
