Film Description
Hello, and welocome. This is my response to the insanely high prices of the prop shop. It is a movie about absolutely nothing. One scene from each set with no editing. No voiceover. No anything. It just shows the kind of movies that this site will be flooded with. Some players will NEVER have a top 10 movie. Some players are casual players. Some players have limited time to play. Some of us don't have a bunch of friends willing to sit around a computer and talk into a mic. I suggest, start the movie let it run in the background while you do something else. When it has completed.... rate it and send it to the top of the charts to show LH the kind of movies they will have with this system in place. It is a complete waste of 13mb with no logical thought. So, Drake Studio's Inc. sadly presents..... The VC Grab!


And as Jamie Durrant says..... Very boring..... my point excatly!!!!!!!! This is what will come of this site.

Birdman.... was that a hint of sarcasm? :D

Being a casual player I do have grave concerns over the propshop idea and the incentive approach.

The film succeeds in its stated goals... its a 5 star time waster... Looking forward to alternative rating systems/reward systems. There has got to be a better way.

The use of lighing was unique. The acting was unpresidented. I can honestly say I have never seen a film of this quality before. I am speachless. I don't think words can describe this film.

LH are about to find out that their propshop system is going to make TMO a joke. I happen to be one of the luckier ones, with 41,000 VC, most of which I got from a couple of fairly successful films, but even I can't buy anything that I could use. The propshop is poorly implemented and the prices are a kick in the teeth for all serious filmmakers. We are about to be awash in a sea of AI-directed garbage aimed at getting the most VC for the smallest amount of effort.

True. i thought i had quite a lot of VCs (15,000) and one of my films got to number 52 and 12 in the genre charts. What am i going to buy with 15,000, a chair a dog and another dog.Yay just think what i could do with that.

some quite funny scenes but a mild lack of continuity. a part of me really wants the challenge of fitting a story to it. the other part remembers the pain of making my own movie.

Something needs to be done that's for sure. Equal rights for all.

Well although i don't entirelly disagree with your opinion, i am obligated to review the movie. As you say it serves no real purpose and the movie has nothing going on. So the movie can't really get more than 1 star, even though i understand you did it on purpose.

As for your opinion, yes unfornatly we're going to be flooded with crap movies but then again.....whats new?

sorry, I just don't agree, I simply which they would consider lowering the VCs and trust me this is not going to help anyone but the actual director. I don't feel like give VC to someone who just isn't following the rules.

I do agree with the fact that sh*t movies are going to flood LH but this isn't the right way to get your messeage out. If you can't help the problem then don't help feed it. Plus I feel you are taking advantage of everyone obvious anger and using it to your advantage...

because you're being childish and I don't think pseudo-protest stuff like this should get into the charts.
