    This piece was a lot of fun.
    Craig's list good.
    the heros trying to sit was really funny
    Nice coverage and lighting.
    Also nice little touches like the people making out behind them!

    The comic book style for the opening was nice ...loved the music that went with it .

    The compression threw me off a little but was live-able .

    Thought the Evil ones were great ...especially the waiter..."Jack Nicholson on crack" lmao .. loved his laugh!!!
    Thought everyone did a nice job of acting ..not easy as I found out doing mine .

    The only nit picking I have was the dinner scene .
    I thought this may have went on a little too long but like I said ..I maybe nit picking.

    Great short .. hope you re submit another re-compressed version .

    The opening was a cool idea, but I had trouble reading the credits. Fave line: "You smell so good!" This alternately reminded me of Annie Hall (the patio scene between Woody Allen and Diane Keaton) and Sex and the City (Carrie's voiceover commentary). Would've enjoyed seeing the fight scene...

    This was a good ride.
    I was with it to the end, but wanted something more when the end came. I hate to say it, but a fight scene would have put a nice cap on this one.
    With that said, you really couldn't trade much of the charater developement. That is what gives this film it's charm. Maybe more time.
    Thanks for the entertainment.

    Loved the opening title work with the comic book pages .. nicely done.

    The compression was REALLY bad on the file I've got, so at times it's hard to see the images.

    Some good lighting, and camera work, and a nice location too.

    Love the crazy guy who came up asking if they'd like more water ... fun character.

    REALLY needed a fight scene or some kind of confrontation/resolution in the end ... it's what I feel we've been building up to and then nadda ... nothing. Or more like, to be continued.

    Did we get a new compression of this uploaded? I know it was discussed earlier. I'd love to see it.

    First time I watched it I was like what the hell is that distracting beep there for? Like when he was diong the partial mind read etc. Then when my laptop shut off I realized I had forgotten to plug in the power cord and my battery had run down. That aside, liked the opening. The compression affected the video but for the most part I liked the look and the lighting. The sound was done very well also. Thanks.

    This film was well-scripted and had a really good opening conceit - superheroes on a blind date. Now that's an idea I can get behind.
    I think the number-one problem with the film was the pacing of the edits. "what am I thinking" voice-overs came WAAAAY too slowly. You should trust your audience more - we've seen a lot of movies, we know what you're trying to do, and we can read the frame as quickly as you can give it to us. Holding those shots just gives us lots of opportunity to look for problems in the frame/performance.
    A good movie should carry its audience, guide it to a reaction. This film sort of lets the viewer think about its 'movie-ness'. Good for Godard, but not for romantic comedy.
    All in all, though, not a bad effort at all, especially in the time frame.
    See you next fest -
