Film Description
Pwned:

a common typo of "owned" that is used in the same way and became a staple in online gaming terminology, or more sarcastically to mock 1337 speak. The past tense of the word "pwn," which means "to kick the ass of (an opponent)."

In the universe of gaming, who is really playing?

**Note: Bless all of you for pointing out the door sequence problem. I actually did catch it as it was running through uploading. How irritating! While I was working on that segment I was on the phone a lot so my attention was divided. (must turn off ringer from now on) Maybe she was zoning and had a little rubberbanding? ;-)

That was good. Made me laugh, I liked that ending. Except for that whole "door thing" the movie was great. Defenite points for originality. Besides, who cares about the few flaws in this movie? If not for me reading the reviews, I wouldn't even have noticed. Thanks for the laughs.

Pretty fun ending, one of the worst cuts ive seen when she walked out the door, then a cameradown over the house, then she walked out the house again... Cuts like that should be forbidden. Otherwise pretty good, The beginning sequence could be faster, its a videogame so it should go quick as one too.

That was a very original movie. The ending was a surprise too. I'm not gonna say anything about the door, you already know about that. All I can say is keep up the good work!

This was a fun movie! Loved the twist at the end! Just a few technical flaws, but nothing that distracted too much from the movie.

Great movie! Very original, which is hard to say about a good chunk of the movies posted on this site (ahem... KING (%#@!)'ing KONG!!) You had an original idea and you went with it... BRAVO!! With a little more publicity, this movie could hit the charts. Keep it up, phredcetera!

Posted on January 3, 2006
- StudProductions

Funny take at the end, but one star off saying that pwned is a typo.

It means..."I owned" just the I fell down.

Used most commonly when you just hs a guy without him even knowing what happened...short for I owned you.. or I owned that ass.

Awesome. Loved the running over bit and how it was done.

Posted on December 23, 2005
- jamespetts

That's quite funny. Problems with the editing when the girl leaves the house (we see her inside opening the door, then two establishing shots outside, then we see her opening the door outside: it doesn't flow properly), but a very funny idea.

Have you ever seen the television series, "Red Dwarf"? There's an episode of that called "back to reality" that has a similar idea. Very good, anyway.

At first I didn't think it was too funny until the scene changed after she was hit from the taxicab. Was a good punchline at least.

It shows the quality of a short movie, which often has to be all the more clever!

- Fratt38

Heehee!!! Very clever movie! And you beat me to it!!
I actually have a very similar movie in the works.
Text as you go, sort of a "make your own adventure" type thing.
Sorry, not a plug, but a warning! Mwuhaahaahaa!
Good stuff though, I like the fight editing, it works so much better when put in an artificial setting. Trying to make a real fight scene look good is hard to pull off. Nice ending too. Keep 'em coming!!

I loved your movie and I will tell you why. It looks like you took time to put it all togehter in a neat little package and presented in a way that everyone could grasp. I especially loved the ending which I was not expecting. You did have a little hiccup with the protagonist leaving the house twice but other than that you have yourself a great little gem. I will make sure to look for other films you realease.

Laugh out loud funny for any MMORPGer. The Game over screen pused it over the top. Good stuff and great twist at the end.

Hate to plug my own movie in a review, but I will because it deals with the exact same subject matter. Click my name to zoom to my studio and view Gangwars - The Duel

You roXXor, mate^^ Great story, would have loved the 'real' game to be The Sims, 'cause she looked a lot like that.

Cool movie but i would have gave it a 5 star if you didn't put the women in the game. She should have been the player and got owned by some boss or something.

Liked it all except for when she opened the front door twice. Just cut out the crane and transition between the two door shots. Nice idea, but I have to say that if you are going to create a movie called "pwned" it should be hilarious. I did like it though, don't get me wrong!!!

- PenwithPictures

LOL. There's a series of books with this same theme, but it still makes for a good movie.

My only real gripe with this is that you have the girl exit the same door twice instead of cutting to her exiting once she opens the door from the interior.

Posted on December 3, 2005
- STEVOSTANLEY

this was a nice idea m8 - omg wtf bbq

erm

yes, nice idea indeed - you could have gone a bit further with the idea though and created custom backdrops with the score on etc ,,,, shame really :(

it was a nice twist at the end also -

i dont think you could have gotten away with the film being any longer , so you showed nice control of the idea rather than making it drag on and on

i expected to see alot of l33t speak ( j00 f00) but i was releaved that there wasnt any...

and a VO also - yay - even after 4 weeks of TMO we dont get to hear many VO's which is a shame.

liked the idea - but it was kinda like a nicelty record - i only want to see it once and im sure it'll be repeated again and again (please dont though as you'll ruin it)

thanks m8 - i liked that

Pretty funny at times, especcially liked the text when the taxi hit the girl.

Being an avid gamer and internet surfer, the title gave cause for a chuckle (O, Rly? Ya Rly!). The movie itself is excellent work! I had an idea where it was going when she walked out the door, but I didn't expect what was coming afterward. All in all, this is a great short film!
