    You know you're my McDreamy, but...

    Uh, uh. The girl talking on the phone, I know, I know, you're a one-man-band. I could feel that in this short-short. The blah-blah chatter on the other end of the phone reminded me of Charlie Brown how the grown-ups talk. Wasn't necessary. Also, you left a lot of clues, but it really didn't sink in as it should until the end.

    The fake-crying wasn't that great. I also agree she could have gone to a night club, somewhere other than just a mall. Despite the subject matter, this fell short, not just time wise, but overall. Not your best work.

    Sigh. You know that's hard for me to say, buddy.

    Thanks for the awesome review Charli... I just wish you were up on current events, then I feel you would have understood it.
    Sometimes these things go over the heads of the viewer (as in this case). Reality will always be stranger then fiction.

    Fake crying... didn't have the heart to make a child cry for a short film.
    Night club... one of the largest dance clubs in this area is in that mall.
    Short film... didn't know you had to fill time for no reason, it's a visual definition of psychopathy.

    Sorry it fell short for you.

    Zaza! You get my first review so rejoice! Great little story you told there. It was complete from start to finish and very well told, so kudos to you and your actors. Nice use of Day-For-Night. It surprised me that it was so short, but I'm glad you cut it where you did: perfect length and with the perfect beat. Next time, don;t feel too bad about making a kid cry though: they'll stop eventually and you'll have a great recording! (I kid! I kid!) Great job man. Next time you gotta haul my ass outta Toronto to come shoot with you.

    The animation was short but it fulfilled the story itself. On this mall, how was I suppose to know there was a club here? Also, keeping up with current events does not make your story any better, just because it's based on one. Lighting was off. She had no one to act off of. It was a rush of a short. You took a tough subject matter to make the audience care for your short. That to me is a cheat. Sorry, no go here.

    Charli is just never satisfied, poor girl. But I think this is great and probably one of your best DVX entries. I know that my acknowledgment of your greatness was all that you were ever dreaming of.

    @ Chris - did you not read my reviews on the animation, the doll and the water's edge? I think that is an unfair poke at me personally, Chris. My reviews are unbiased. I happen to adore Joe here. He's one sweet dude. But unlike many here who are so happy to pat each other on the back and whisper things unsaid how they really feel, I don't go that route. If filmmakers were more willing to really state the "truth" about a project, maybe we would see better flicks after all of these years.

    @ Rogan - I didn't go in detail with your flick because there wasn't much to say. It wasn't much of a story.

    @ ZaZa - right on back at you

    An oppinion by its nature is biased. You are not a special type of nuetral person. Your reviews are honest as you see them and I'm sure everyone appreciates that. I do think there is maybe a better way to express your oppinion, but to each their own. Seriously cheer up.
