Film Description
This is the story of the Hollywood Horse that stole a million hearts.

Relive the highs and lows of the Horse that took Hollywood by storm.

I know it's long, but anyone who's seen Fighting Blind will know I don't disappoint.

And FYI, only 3 fades in this one ;)

Mega thanks to Buccura for voicing Charlie Smiles, everything else is done by me.

Hovis Hollywood Legend is a brilliantly funny parody of movie stars and the media. This film deserves to win the Golden Kumquat! Great editing, voice work throughout the film. Speaking for all of us in Hollywood, Hovis will be missed. By the way I am spearheading the campaign for all the studio heads to come together and get Hovis his much deserved star on Hollywood Blvd.

Well, I can't say that I particullary liked your movie at all. In fact, it made me want to vomit; then again, so does Entertainment Tonight. So I'm guessing, you did a damn good job.

Excellent. I think you owe 'Buccura' one for telling everyone about your movie. Those first two idiots who gave you 1-star should be shot. I would do it perosnally but I dont know who they are. Damn! Anyway, excellent voice-overs and story. Made me chuckle. I think this is a tip to any one thinking for an idea for a movie. These 'This Is Your Life/Inside the Actors' Studio/... Hollywood Legend' etc. films ALWAYS go down really, really well. The Hovis Facts were hilarious and random. I'm going to bookmark this movie if you don't mind. You dont mind? Great!
Excellent work. Keep it up!

May we never forget his amazing acting abilities... standing so still... and those amazing nays... and wat a hotty!!!

Its such a shame the he had to die the way he did... shot down... such a tragedy... i hope they shot him down with a good gun... not some old dusty 22... im sure he would have wanted to be gunned down by a machine gun or rocket luancher like everyone else in the world.

Even if he was shamed in some nuaghty and sticky films... he was still a good horse...

Actually that was a pretty well made movie.
It was quite funny at points and totally failed at others, but all throughout the movie you could tell effort had been put into it.

The satire maybe it's too long, but it's really hilarios, it have great voices, good script, nice editing, a lot of work, it's a great comedy. 5 over 5.

Posted on January 1, 2006
- Mailer

Production and Direction top notch. Idea excellent. Problem was that the jokes were okay, but not quite funny enough--several opportunities missed to satarize the parody movies you did. Most of the jokes during the movie clips revolved around Hovis facts--which were hit and miss in the comedy department. It really deserves four stars, except that the length of the film versus the pay off forced me to give a reluctant three stars.

I was going to give 5 stars... until it went past the 5 minute mark. That was just a little long for a parody. On the plus side though the VOs, editing, and story where great.

Great editing, sound, vo, and of course original idea. The joke goes on a little bit to long but 5 star all the same.

I went to school with Hovis. I never knew he had such a sorted past. Excellent work. Very original idea. Only downside was the length. It seemed to bog down in the middle. Really good job though.

Tjis movie had me laughing a lot and was a very creative idea. The editing was done very well. It was some of the best I've seen on this site! The story was quite enjoyable and most of the time I was laughing. It could have been cut down a little having only funny parts. The scenes were very welll thought out before they were put in. All of them added something to the story. The dialouge was the best part of this movie. It was enjoyable to listen to and the Hovis Fact's were extremmely fun to read. The VOs were well done and had a real good feel to it. The music really fit this movie well. The sound effects added were some of the best I've seen added. They were well made and had a great feel to them.
Editing: 5
Story: 4
Originallity: 5
Scene Fit: 5
Dialouge: 5
Sound: 5

Overall: 4.8

This movie was just very long and drawn out for me. YOu get 1 star for the time you put into it, and 1 star for voice-over.

Well edited, but the film was boring. The comedy was like going to the dentist to have teeth pulled. The length also is of concern if you are going to make a film over 5 min long then it has to exceptional. This was just dull.

Posted on December 20, 2005
- HairRaiser71

Excellent across the board. I particularly liked the Crypt Raider scenes.

Posted on December 20, 2005

The was extremely well done. Well thought out. Editing, VO, everything was great. But.... You did so well it really felt like I was watching Entertainment Tonight or something. I HATE Entertainment Tonight and something. So beings the rate is partially based upon how the viewer felt, I gotta put a 4 on this. This was a hard one to review for me.

This had a lot of work put into it. Very good editing. The VO over was good but you could hear little "bumps". I think the mic was just a bit too close to your mouth. While I liked the idea of this movie, it started to drag for me. I can only take so much of hovis. If you made this style as a community update on the movies here.... man that would be awesome and would get hundreds of hits each week I imagine. The custom sounds and backdrops were very nice and well done. Knowing how much work this took, I almost give it 4 stars. But it really just got boring for me. 3 stars. I hope to see more of your movies because the attention to detail and work you put in to it will pay. Good luck.

Extremely inventive, and pretty consistently funny. It perhaps went on for one gag too long, but it kept my interest. I think my favorite Hovis movie is the zombie one....

A Global Film Company Review

The film Hovis Hollywood Legend was everything that jlhuddl said: "Kind of boring. It was funny, but not funny enough to make me laugh. It was cute, but not very interesting overall. What I thought, plot, special parts, things that stuck out." Although, it had some good scenes, and had some funny parts, the movie did not "wow" me. It was very bland, and although you did have some nice backdrops, it still didnt make it impressive.

The special effects, music, and editing were allright. Nothing bad, nothing extravagant, very bland if you ask me. I liked the cutscenes and I liked the backdrops. What I would improve is the runtime, make it shorter. That movie did drag on an awful lot. I enjoyed it, but it was nothing special. Global Film Company gives this film a 3/5.

Plot/Story: 3
Editing: 5
Audio: 4
Dialogue: 3
Originality: 3

Script - Great - Grade A+ quality script, so many little jokes you feel compelled to watch it again to see if you missed any 5*
Music - Great - Used well in every scene 5*
Editing - Great - Perfection 5*

The Good:
Parody title!! Better than bad porn movie titles (which always make me laugh)... they were great!
*Hovis Facts*! Hilarious!

The Bad:
Ran a little long on the gag, interest dwindled just a bit, and that cost you a star from me

But Seeing Hovis climb the drain pipe got it back!!

Funny stuff!
-Keep it Up!

The Good: Excellent Editing, and Post-Production additions were tight. Everything was placed together well. ON the technical side, you did extremely well.

The Bad: Kind of boring. It was funny, but not funny enough to make me laugh. It was cute, but not very interesting overall.

Ok the use of outside music was a downer.....However wiped freakin clean with the hilarious true hollywood story of Hovis. I loved the running gag of him never acting one bit in any part of any movie. Also the voices were done very well. Also I loved the factoids of Hovis, favorite ws the NRA one.

I really dig your voice acting. a couple blows into the mic kinda shot it a bit, but nothing I couln't ignore.

Though the theme song for the E! show fits, It would have been nice to hear some of the music the game provides. I thought you might had used other programs to make this, but then thought about the possibility of custom backdrops. Awesome job on those, if that is the case.

Posted on December 16, 2005
- Lefthander

Excellent! great use of custom backdrops, excellent VO's, just superb work all the way through. I would usually only give 4 stars for this kind of movie because it is not a 'real' movie, but with all the 1 star attacks, you deserve the 5th star aswell. great stuff!

A fitting obituary. I never knew Hovis was THAT famous.

Pretty funny, good editing, and solid voice acting. My only complaint would be that it might have worked well shorter. After five minutes the gag of Hovis just being in the background of a normal movie got old. Still, there were plenty of gags to keep me watching the whole way through. ("We're not allowed to show you the part where Hovis joined in.")

Good work :)

I see aload of people reviewd it with 1 star because you reviewd their friends as 1 star. Thats lame.
you film earned 5 stars. If i could give you more to make up the 1 stars I would

You not only worked hard and your effort shows.
the voice acting was great
It made me laugh.

Haha, that was funny. Showed a lot of effort that pulled off. Great origional music too! And I also, really like the... voice of... Charlie Smiles.... ;). Anyway, great film!

And to all those 12 year olds who posted one, get over it. If your friend's film sucked, then it deserves a 1 star. Get over it. Pansys.
