Film Description
WINNER OF THE JANUARY 11th 2006 CULT INC. MOVIE OF THE DAY AWARD!

Think Twilight Zone meets War of the Worlds...

Watch as 200 million years of history and the human race come under attack from the unknown. How will humanity survive... or does it?

This movie has voice overs, narration, custom music from freeplaymusic.com, and special effects.

***NOTE: The Narrator is one of the characters told from his perspective ***

***SIDE NOTE*** LostWolfNesbit points out "Anyway, don't you think it's funny how aliens are able to speak english so well?" - I agree... it does seem pretty far fetched that 'English' is spoken Universe-wide. LOL

Epic, Masterful, Magnificent! �?? Change Of Fortune �?? is a science fiction film of grand design and sweeping splendor. At the heart of the film is a finely crafted screenplay that hits all the notes of good screenwriting. With a breathtaking opening that encompasses the entire Earth the film sweeps the viewer along into a tale of horror and sci-fi delight.
A wonderful score highlights this film and adds to its dimension with symphonic overtones. The special effects are nothing short of stunning as we see the destruction of the Earth. What survives is more chilling and horrible than can be imagined and thus begins Earth�??s revenge from the darkest legends of man.
I was swept away on the wings of élan by this film and thrilled at its incredible production values. �?? Change Of Fortune �?? is indeed a change for the better in the science fiction genre that earns it the MGM platinum seal of approval.

A great effort of placing custom backdrops. The destruction of the planet must have been a heel of work to do, but it is very well done!

Also, great pacing of the scenes. The story proceeded very fluent and never got boring.

Good voice overs round the whole melange up to a incredibly well made SciFi-flic, which definatly deserves a high rank in the charts and a high view-rate.

Gratulations!

It's not very often that I leave a review that attempts to stroke the ego of any director....but this has got to be one of the most entertaining items i have found on TMO to date.

The story was solid from the get go and and everything fell into place very nicely. During it's run I was trying to figure out how it was going to end....but to no avail....fantastic job keeping the audience entertained!

Just found me another studio and a film to bookmark!

Absolutely AMAZING!!! The story grabbed my interest right away, and it felt like a real movie from start to finish. Everything from VO to choice of scenes and special effects was perfect! (I was particularly impressed by the use of custom backdrops for the planet explosion! Wow!) I would give it 10 stars on all counts if I could!

This movie definitely deserves to climb to the Top 25 Chart, and is a must-see for any sci-fi fans!

Script: 5; Very original view of an old theme. You had real good cues, and the story developped smoothly and easily, still mantaining its dept. Very well done. As other reported, the voice sometimes was hars to understand, mostly that of the narrator.

Editing: 5 stars; Very well done with the backdrops, and the scene editing. Good choices and well put together.

Music: 4; The music was good in most parts, but there was nothing really up to the task of incrementing (italian word for enlarging, but I can't find a better word in english) the theme of the script. Well put together and the cuts were nicely done.

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
Valtharius we can't help it, but we you're biggest fans. These are some good quality movies with no real mistakes in them. Valtharius is one of the more great filmmakers using his high budgeted special F/X. He is our favorite sci-fi filmmaker so far. With Starforce and this one it only adds to the resume. This one had some good voices especially the deep one. Like the characters and the matchup between the two characters. It lived up to it's billing. What a great ender. The 9 minutes was time well spent. It didn't bore us at. Nice storylines accomadate a studio that is already one of the more succlessive powerhouses on TMO. It had a lesson like Twilight ZONE always has. Change of Fortune was a title that keeps you intrested. An A+ on the mod work. This classic sci-fi film is going to go on and get our prestigious five star golden performace. Nice job Valtharius The Mad no mistakes as we repeat again. This is a must see for all sci-fi fans because if you liked Carpe Diem you'll like this one.

Absolutly entertaining... superb. 8 mins 56 secs of my time well spent. Loved the intro credits. I gotta learn how to do that. Keep these masterpieces coming. Hope to see you in the charts. It would be great to see this one there with my Outlaws.

AWESOME ENDING! That was so cool I was ready for some corny we escape against all odds but then BAM! There it was a real ending. It had some awesmoe special effects and the backdrops were really coll. Loved it and can't wait for more from you! It really lived up to the trailers climax. One of the few over 5 min. movies I didn't stop watching. A real edge of your seat sci-fi movie!

Nice work! One of the first I've seen using such special effects. The music and voice work are top notch and there is nothing else that can be said for such another TMO classic! Mad props my friend! HOT PICK! *****

Hm... excellent story, very creative, though I was a bit put off by the ending, that's just personal prejudice against vampires.

Music - 8/10 - didn't notice it much over the voiceovers, but when I did, I like it

Voiceovers - 9/10 - I have a lot of family over so it was sort of hard to hear some of the vo's, but most of the narration was excellent... lemme guess, Audacity?

Use of scenes - 7/10 Excellent, I was wondering how you would go about creating a devastated earth, but you handled it quite well... especially the custom sets... but how on earth did you do the scene where the earth gets pwned? You simply must PM me in the forums and explain

Presentation - 9/10 - A bit on the longish side, but the only parts that didn't really interest me were the opening credits, though I do always give an extra star to people who actually know how to utilize those... otherwise, excellent makeup, i liked the red-eyed guy at the end...:p

Overall - 9/10 - You could've pushed the envelope with some more dialogue... I don't wanna hear that they found links between eachother, i wanna HEAR the links they find between each-other... that's where the narration seemed over-used, but I'll cut you some slack. Well done, definitely don't regret watching it.

A Movie to be seen by all. Every aspect of this movie shouted experience and enjoyment
Your talent for story telling is exceptional and you kept us guessing the whole time about the survivors until the very end. The effects were perfectly executed and a treat for the eyes. The VO�??s were clear and matched the characters very well
I enjoyed everything about this movie

I really liked that twist ending. Note to the people clamoring for more action:have you seen the old black and white Twilight Zones? they were NOT noted for their action. Several were actually almost entirely narration with NO action.
And yes I've seen EVERY Twilight Zone EVER made (I'm also aware of how big a geek that makes)

Originality : 8/10
I can't say this was the usual alien invasion film because this one was pretty original.I keep saying this but originality counts.

Plot/Story : 8/10
This was a well thoughtout story with some minor points and some better points.
It could have been better if you ask me.

Subtitles/Vos : 8/10
Again an 8...It thought it was hard to understand what the narrator was saying sometimes and you had to listen very carefully to follow the story.

Editing : 9/10
Problably the best part of the movie. The movie has some good custom credits and the custom music was cool. Kee up the good work.

Wow ME Effect : 7/10
I expected more from this film. Im not saying I was disappointed but the story could have developped a bit more. This is just how I feel about the movie.

OVERALL : 40/50. A good 4-star movie.

Very solid story with good, understated use of mods and custom backdrops and nicely done editing with particularly smooth transition scenes. Narrators VO was hypnotic and pulled you along with the story.
As someone else commented, I would have liked a little more action over narration. Liked the revelation at the end but I am not sure this simple though dramatic ending warranted almost 9 minutes of film to precede it.
Good movie.

Excellent plot and special effects. Rather too much narration and not enough dialogue for my taste. It made me feel like I was watching a history channel documentary, rather than a movie (or a Twilight Zone spisode). If that was your intent, then "good show!" The contrast between the loud character voices and the soft narration was a bit jarring to me, and in a few places, hard to understand. Otherwise, outstanding!

That was fricking awesome!!!! The VO fades out a little toward the end but that did not detract much from an excellent movie. I definitely did not see the end comming... I was thinking telepaths or something... wow! 95/100

Brilliant! Must have taken an age! Great care was taken with the voice-overs, this was very well directed. The custom scenes were well executed, and you did an excellent job of making earth feel heavily populated in the early scenes. Loved the twist at the end too, although I think a scene involving the main survivor "taking" the alien leader would have polished it off to perfection. Despite that, it's still worthy of five. Looking forward to your next project. :)

Wow, very nice, very nice indeed. Great use of backdrops, sets, and costumes. I am a big fan of Sci-fi movies and this is one i would actually love to see as a real movie.

Your story was exellent and well thought out. I also love that you added Vampires lol. Very cool twist. If i could give more then 5 stars i would have. Keep up the great work.

Content: 5 out of 5 - The custom backgrounds were excellent and some of the best that I have seen so far. Great effects using the custom backgrounds.
Voice Acting: 4 out of 5 - Good narration, nice and clear voicing, some minor static from microphone otherwise great.
Storyline: 5 out of 5 - Great plot twist on an otherwise limited Genre. Solid story through out.
Overall: 5 out of 5
Comments: One of the Great films to be found on the movies online site. Great film. Great engaging story.

OH WOW! This has got to be my favorite movie yet! I was going to give it 4 stars, because the beginning was a bit drawn out (too many locations seen), but as it got going, it picked up speed and by the end I was blown away. I can't wait to see the lead earth actor in another role.

Posted on January 15, 2006
- Dylen

Pretty awesome! Great work Valtharius!!

Hard to find much error in this one, so I gotta nitpick. Towards the end the VO got hard to hear (I think the sound effects kinda drowned it out a little). Also I think it is a little unrealistic to travel from earth to the zytherion frontier in the time you claim. EVERYONE knows that would take 2 days longer then you portrayed. Hehehe

It's a lot better than my 'film', even if mine had voiceovers, yours would still beat it by several billion acres.

This might just be me though. But I can't fault the editing, pacing, etc. Everything is top notch. There was just 'something' missing to kick it up to 5 for me, despite an admittedly flawless job.

I watched this a while ago and was surprised to find I hadn't rated it yet, but it came up on review trader soo... The effects and editing were excellent. My main suggestion is a plot issue. It seems they only realize what they are at the end of the movie, but then why were they so happy and laughing before the scene where they compared lives? But in general great work!

Very well Acted and edited and much better than any "star-trek" episode i have ever seen but i felt some parts were slightly cliched and the music could have been used better. The narrators voice was very low and made it sound like a Film advert but otherwise this film was superb, and this coming from someone who is not a fan of most sci-fi is a remarkable achievment, well done.

Great twist at the end and an overall superior production. My ONLY reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because you did TOO MUCH NARRATION! Don't tell me the story, let the story tell itself. That's what movies are for. Otherwise, you could just as easily have posted a long forum entry or submitted a short story instead.

Brilliant movie well done, I only came across this in passing and was blown away. Everything that has already been said positively I agree with.

Technically extraordinary, fantastic voice over and great story. Perhaps some more variation in the exterior shots of the ship (simply mirroring the image might have worked). The exploding planet must have been a pain to make. I'm not to keen on the characters and costumes, though, surely there is better sci fi gear around. And some less dark scenes would have made this pefect. Great job.

Wow - my only critique - a cell phone for the vice-commander? Come on.. (no pun intended)

God, that was excellent - a fantastic twist at the end a la War of the Worlds. Was that in mind? Even if it was, completely unforeseen. I don't even have to mention the excellent editing or superb script.

The music was a bit loud and bassy, though. A minor flaw.

Fantastic.

Very nicely done - how DID you bypass the opening credits? Good production values - sound, editing, and writing.

Yet again, brilliant voice overs! And the story/pacing/editting was just brilliant. Enjoyed the end (won't give it away). Interesting take on an old legend, mixed with good old end-of-world sci-fi (one of my faves btw).

Keep up the great work! See you at the top of the charts! (or at least with enough VC's to bye that damned wagon... lol)

Movies like this is why I want to buy this game ASAP! I really liked the flow of the movie and how you made the planet explode!

This has to be one of the best movies I have ever seen. The voice acting was incredible and the story was rather captivating. I especially love the ending. As one would say ... an eye for an eye; you kill a planet, I kill you back. Interesting twist! It definitely deserves five stars.

Absolutely AMAZING!!! The story grabbed my interest right away, and it felt like a real movie from start to finish. Everything from VO to choice of scenes and special effects was perfect! (I was particularly impressed by the use of custom backdrops for the planet explosion! Wow!) I would give it 10 stars on all counts if I could!

This movie definitely deserves to climb to the Top 25 Chart, and is a must-see for any sci-fi fans!

Script: 5; Very original view of an old theme. You had real good cues, and the story developped smoothly and easily, still mantaining its dept. Very well done. As other reported, the voice sometimes was hars to understand, mostly that of the narrator.

Editing: 5 stars; Very well done with the backdrops, and the scene editing. Good choices and well put together.

Music: 4; The music was good in most parts, but there was nothing really up to the task of incrementing (italian word for enlarging, but I can't find a better word in english) the theme of the script. Well put together and the cuts were nicely done.

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
Valtharius we can't help it, but we you're biggest fans. These are some good quality movies with no real mistakes in them. Valtharius is one of the more great filmmakers using his high budgeted special F/X. He is our favorite sci-fi filmmaker so far. With Starforce and this one it only adds to the resume. This one had some good voices especially the deep one. Like the characters and the matchup between the two characters. It lived up to it's billing. What a great ender. The 9 minutes was time well spent. It didn't bore us at. Nice storylines accomadate a studio that is already one of the more succlessive powerhouses on TMO. It had a lesson like Twilight ZONE always has. Change of Fortune was a title that keeps you intrested. An A+ on the mod work. This classic sci-fi film is going to go on and get our prestigious five star golden performace. Nice job Valtharius The Mad no mistakes as we repeat again. This is a must see for all sci-fi fans because if you liked Carpe Diem you'll like this one.

Captivating, intelligent, a classic no-doubt about it.

This one was really good. The music was well chosen. The dialogue was sometimes hard to understand and your old problem with the distorted title backgrounds was still present. But you did a great job on story and editing!

Your use of custom titles captured my attention, your excellent voice over and custom backdrops held it and the twist at the end cinched it. A most enjoyable film. Well done @->--------

Absolutly entertaining... superb. 8 mins 56 secs of my time well spent. Loved the intro credits. I gotta learn how to do that. Keep these masterpieces coming. Hope to see you in the charts. It would be great to see this one there with my Outlaws.

AWESOME ENDING! That was so cool I was ready for some corny we escape against all odds but then BAM! There it was a real ending. It had some awesmoe special effects and the backdrops were really coll. Loved it and can't wait for more from you! It really lived up to the trailers climax. One of the few over 5 min. movies I didn't stop watching. A real edge of your seat sci-fi movie!

Your movies never cease to surprise me. All I can say without spoiling it for others is that the twist in this movie is completely unexpected. Great job Val!

Nice work! One of the first I've seen using such special effects. The music and voice work are top notch and there is nothing else that can be said for such another TMO classic! Mad props my friend! HOT PICK! *****

Ver y very good: five stars of course. Nice editing and a real good plot. But I don't like how looks like th main character! Just a personal point of view!

F'ing awesome! This movie is like Twilight Zone material! Are you going to do anymore of these type of movies?

Hm... excellent story, very creative, though I was a bit put off by the ending, that's just personal prejudice against vampires.

Music - 8/10 - didn't notice it much over the voiceovers, but when I did, I like it

Voiceovers - 9/10 - I have a lot of family over so it was sort of hard to hear some of the vo's, but most of the narration was excellent... lemme guess, Audacity?

Use of scenes - 7/10 Excellent, I was wondering how you would go about creating a devastated earth, but you handled it quite well... especially the custom sets... but how on earth did you do the scene where the earth gets pwned? You simply must PM me in the forums and explain

Presentation - 9/10 - A bit on the longish side, but the only parts that didn't really interest me were the opening credits, though I do always give an extra star to people who actually know how to utilize those... otherwise, excellent makeup, i liked the red-eyed guy at the end...:p

Overall - 9/10 - You could've pushed the envelope with some more dialogue... I don't wanna hear that they found links between eachother, i wanna HEAR the links they find between each-other... that's where the narration seemed over-used, but I'll cut you some slack. Well done, definitely don't regret watching it.
