Film Description
HOTPICK !

This is an epic story about pirates chasing a king's corsair that betrayed them.
They are heading for an island with dangerous natives.
Now imagine the sea is the universe, the pirate ships are sailing between the stars, and that island.. is our planet.
It's a story about love, also. Wherever you may be in the universe, there is love, there is war, hope and despair...


5 custom music tracks composed by me :)

Now, I had a lot of problems exporting this video, and even if I had to retry it for 4 time, still, there are some little "funny" things happening, like some sounds not being at the very right place. But anyway I had fun making it and next one can only be better...

Hope you enjoy it!:)

A masterpiece! Excellent in every way! The music was wonderful and the story... omg... as I say: a masterpiece!

I think this is the best movie I've seen yet. The comparisons of the humans and aliens was stunning.

Originality-10 The best of all genres, in ONE movie. The action was laid out in a perfect time limit, the fifteen minutes used perfectly.

Music-10 Blew me away. The music was something I would definetely pay money for.

Subtitles-10 I didn't see any problem with the time they were left on, and the dialogue was excellent.

Editing-9 It was extraordinary, except I think you overdid the fades.

Use of scenes-10

Beginning-10 Riveting. I was glued. Nothing better

Middle-9.5 It got a little confusing, but it got sorted out, so I'm not complaining.

Ending-10 Perfect. I would've thought completely differently.

Credits-10 Pleasing to the eye is an understatement. Perfect is an understatement.

Character Developement-9 We got to know a lot about the characters, but I think a little bit more time could've been spent developing them, especially the second alien leader.

Overall Quality-97.5/100

actually....99.999999999999999999999/100

You are the Steven Spielberg of The Movies.

I'm...stunned. This movie is great! Is it really 15 minutes long? Wow, I don't regret watching every single second of it...

Originality: 10/10 Great idea - I liked the various story lines being intervoven into one...

Plot/Story: 8/10 Well, it is original, no doubt, but I don't feel like I could give you a 10 here - some parts are a little bit trivial...

Dialogue (VOs/Subt.): 9/10 You definitely did a great job here. Partly they are only quite convincing, not entirely convincing, as the rest. ;-) The subs were not too fast, in my opinion.

Editing: 10/10 The backflashes at the end...wow! The intercuts between different places and people were awesome - I hope I'll ever reach that level!You'd already deserve 10 for only the credits ;-)

Music: 10/10 Fits the movie really well and supports the story in every aspect one could imagine.

Overall impression: 47/50 I'm impressed, really impressed. You can be considered a role model for all the others who have not yet achieved such a high level as you! (PS: The line "Thrust me" is so funny - I wouldn't correct it...even the best movies in the world have some flaws...)

Cheers and good luck for any further projects!

Wow...well...WOW!!

Originality : 10/10. This movie has everything to be considered one of the most original movies on TMO ! Even to the world, this story is something never seen before !

Plot/Story : 10/10. It's almost like it's perfect ! The story is amazing and all the pieces come together as they should and make one Masterpiece ! I've never seen a movie movie on TMO with a story this well thoughtout ! You really raised the bar with this film. I can't wait to see your next films !

Subtitles/VO's : 8/10. The subtitles made me understand the whole story so bravo to that because you need to be able to do something like that ! The subtitles were more like a book, they absorbed me into the story and that's a gift when people can do that ! The lack of VO's cost you 2 points.

Editing : 10/10. I guess I could already give you 10 points just for the credits. So if you ask me I'd be giving you something like "Editing : 15/10" but i'm afraid I can't do that ! The editing was just perfect ! No seriously...It was. And the music was going in perfect harmony with the story ! Great job man !

"Wow ME Effect" : 10/10. Well, I guess you get that this movie blasted me away. It contains every element a film needs ! You might be the next Steven Spielberg !

OVERALL : 48/50. Ok, I admit it : This IS the best movie I've seen at TMO so far ! And I don't think it gets a lot better than this one ! The movie is definately worth those short 15 minutes (yes... times flyes when you're having fun).

Cheers,
Floyd_31.

Oh god ... Oh GOD!!!! ... I think i might quit making movies because of this!! How can i compete against this?!! It's like Vinnie Jones trying to make a better movie than Steven Spielberg ... Damn that was amazing ...

Originality - 10 - not seen any other movie quite like it
Plot/Story - 10 - riveting
Dialogue - 9.5 - I invented the half mark just for this movie ... There were some fast subs at the begining basically (nit picking i know) but the rest was phenominal!
Editing - 9.5 - the fast subs and one minor thing when she is on the floor of the shack, the glass is too close to her body so it actually is INSIDE her ... but other than that that was absolutely imense! Perfection (almost)
"wow factor" - 10

Overall - 49 = 5* - Ok well when you get this good i start to get really really picky ... obviously what i picked out are really minor things and so it only took .5 for each... as a perfect 50 is just that it has to be Perfect ... so damn close ... so close i feel bad not giving you the 50 ... Just one question concerning the music ... Can I please know the name of that song at the end ... OMG i loved it! It was one of the best pieces of music i have heard! So please PM me with a name, or if it was done by you is there anywhere i can get it?!!!

Wow! What a great film! The editing was great. Good story too. Didn't seem like 15 minutes at all, the time flew by because I was drawn into the story.
Great music also. Wish I had that kind of music for my film I am working on.

Not bad, kind of lost interest in the end but a very good effort. The music was brilliant and the use of sets was very good with the swooping camera takes, you do like your fade outs don't you :).
It says above that you got Voice Actors, i didn't hear any talk but it was good story and the subtitles gave the film its momentum.
Keep it up and i look forward to your next film. Don't think i said this already but that music was cool.

Well, this is two for two. Epic really is the word. If I thought your last movie was good, then this is just fantastic. The fifteen minutes flew past. The only problem was that it was sometimes too dark to see what was going on, but that's a problem with 'The Movies', NOT with your movie! Once again, I was very impressed with the cutting, atmosphere, pacing and music. It's a fine example of the professional standards one can attain with this game (game?)and although I agree with some people about the shortcomings of the scenes and sets available, it just goes to show how much can be achieved with imagination and a will to see something through. I'm now beginning to regret some of the high scores I've given other movies, because in comparison, five stars for this is just not high enough. What it really comes down to is that I was truly entertained and after seeing most of those scenes in other movies (my own included) time and time again, that's a pretty mean feat to achieve! All I can say is that I want to see more of your movies. Oh, and it goes without saying that I'm giving this a measly five stars, but it should be at least twice that!

This movie really left me gasping for air! The movie seems like Crash! All these different races are colliding, and putting big impacts on each others lives! I would love to have your soundtrack! The soundtrack was incredible, excpecially at the beggining and the end! The end music really kept me involved. The movie was incredible! Why is it not at #1! This movie is much better then any movie on the charts! It is incredible! There is no way anyone can top this movie! Incredible! Fantastic! Left me breathless! Every word in the book that would say this movie is good belongs in this review! Nothing was wrong about it! Loved it!

Oh wow, that's a great thrilling story with a lot of fantastic music!
Although my english knowledge isn't so good I've understood the most of this story. Sometimes subtitles were a little bit too fast, unfortunately.
But you get a really big talent to make entertaining movies.

P.S.: Many thanks for your friendly vote.

I had previously called one of my movies, "the best non-VO movie I've seen" and I honestly felt that way about my movie, but this surpasses it in everyway possible, the music, the story, the editing, it all meshes together so well it's hard to believe I just spent 15 minutes watching it. I love this movie, quite possible the best I've seen so far, VO's or no VO's, very well done!
I hate when people do this, but I already mentioned the film so...

Outstanding editing, outstanding use of scenes, excellent story, excellent original music, interesting, original storyline, characters that develop with time...what can I say. This movie is in the top 1% of all movies on TMO. Rik, you're a natural born filmmaker. One typo: 'Thrust me' marred a perfect 100% job. Wow.

It seemed like one of those really cool music videos, that has a story arc.

Wasnt perfect, lot of typos and misplaced subs, very confusing as to who was the movies hero, who we root for.
Nontheless, everything else about the movie soooo compensates for the flaws I give 5 stars anyway, and I dont really do '5 star' reviews.
Great soundtrack and intro, great mood and pace, great editing and cutting.
You could retire tomorrow and be satisfied with your achievement here.
Classic Movie!

This movies is amazing, if it had been Voice-Over'd it would have been even better. The shifting in scenes is great and the storyline keeps the watcher watching right till the end. The flashback scene is superb. Well orcherstrated and the soundtrack worked perfectly for the movie. Except for a few sound effects a little early or late the movie shines bright!

*SPOILER* Nice one. You put the two plots together very smoothly. The editing is really good and you showed that subtitles can be a proper instrument when correctly used. The music follows the plot perfectly as well and the overall ambientation is perfectly accomplished. Though I didn't like the story much, that's just my personal taste and doesn't affect my rating because, after all, you found a great way to tell it. By the way, I don't know where that guy can get a bomb from... but.. oh well... who cares if he saves the day and get his revenge? (let's just call it poethical license) ;)

I felt a bit unclear as to what was happening at the very beginning of the film, the subbing was a bit too quick and the relationship between the two main characters at the beginning could have been established better. However, once the film became earth bound, these issues cleared up and overall I think it's a great film. Music's good too, btw :)

L'histoire est très belle, elle m'a agréablement surpris! Le montage est également excellent! 5 étoiles méritées!
Mais le film n'est pas sans défauts, je les signale pour que tu puisses te surpasser la prochaine fois:
-Bon ça c'est les goûts et les couleurs, mais je n'ai pas beaucoup apprécié les musiques d'action (de style techno) sinon bravo pour les autres
-Il y a quelques invraisemblances dans le scénario (là encore ça peut rester subjectif) Ainsi je trouve bizarre qu'une nana qui vient juste de s'engager dans l'armée et qui mangeait des hamburgers dans un snack se retrouve le même soir en opération dans la forêt!..
-Sinon on peut aussi se demander d'où le terrien dépressif a sorti une bombe à retardement. Ca se trouve pas à tous les coins de rue!
Voilà, bonne continuation!

Good God. It's a shame the uploading screwed up the sound. I think one of the main factors that made this movie so great was the music. Fantastic music, keep it up for the next one. Magnificant story, even though there's still a lot of holes that need to be filled. I'll definately be looking out for the next one. I'm diggin' the monocle.

What the?! I'm such an idiot, that I havn't watched this movie earlier. Oh damn it, i could bite myself. I just landed there because you have rated my movie. First, thanks a lot. The subs were at the right place, just the VO wasn't at the right place, there were totally jumbeled up. But anyway, I have to write about your movie, not mine.
But I don't know where shall i start? You have created one of the best movies I've ever seen. Not only on TMO, in the whole wide world. I mean, what movie has such a great story? You are storywriter? You must be a storywrite. I havn't thought that it would get so great at the start. But don't think that the start was bad or something like that. The start was full of atmosphere, but when first James the first time appeared the movie got on a complete new level, created by himself. I think I havn't been so paralyzied anywhen before when I've seen a movie on TMO. Just a masterpiece like tamptak has written, a masterpiece!! I hope that you have other movies online, that I can watch now. Anyway, i bookmark this movie of course and i bookmark you studio, even its english or american and I'm german.

AAHHH...wat was so special that movie sucked to me.It was boring the story was just stupid. You never told us wat they were looking for. The best part of the movie was when he said Thrust me and instead of trust me.

bravo pour ce film ! franchement il est très bien fait ! hey pour le générique de début j'ai essayé de faire un truc du même genre en créant des backdrops et en faisant des zoom avec la scène mais c'est flou à chaque fois... tu fais autrement toi ?
merci de me répondre et encore une fois bravo pour ton film !

I think you did a wonderful job editing this movie. You have set the bar for all to follow. Great job overall! I can't wait to see another epic like this from you!

Great opening credits. Cool movie with a plot that draws you in.

Very nicely done! Fantastic story, plot, and you drew me in so
that it didn't seem like 15 min. I agree with the person that
said that it was a bit long for subtitles, but they were also
well written. VO's would have set this over the top. However,
there is no sense in punishing you for that, VO's would have
been excruciating to keep in tact with something this long.
So, here's my 5*'s for ya. Keep rolling em'.

A very nice complex plot structure and a storyline that doesn't disappoint. I'm surprised I didn't see this movie before.

I found it quite confusing at times and I wasn't 100% sure what was going on until James met the aliens. This is because of the way subs were used in the scenes - remember that with subs there is no way to identify who is speaking unless you really clarify that.
For the reason it shouldn't rate 5 stars - but it does, for the following reasons:

This is a movie with superb production values, visuals and pace. The soundtrack really does what it needs to do at the right points. It adds wonderfully to the pace and feel of the film. The music is so good that it would be a shame to add VOs.
This movie is a fantastic piece of work which kept me watching for sheer pleasure, even when I wasn't entirely sure what was happening, and that is the sign of a truly great movie.

A true five star film - I can only congratulate you on producing this.

This movie, while long, had a wonderful story at its core from love, despair to war. The plot moved slightly too fast at points, but it nevertheless kept a good pace throughout and totally engaged me in it. The characters were wonderfully created and one could feel the love in that relationship between lucy and that man. The custom soundtrack also added loads to an already great movie. Definately worth 5 stars and Hot Pick, perhaps even a spot in the top 25.
However one slight problem was the subtitles which were alright for the most part, but sometimes flashed by too quickly or had spelling mistakes.
Though nevertheless I hope my epic movie can live up to the standards you have set. It also goes to show you can have an epic movie without needing 3Dprogams etc.

I don't see how anyone could have rated this lower than five stars. Not only is it the best subtitled film I have seen, it is on par with "A is for Alice" as far as the sheer power behind its delivery. The music MAKES this movie. Watch it twice. Watch it three times. Download it in case it is ever removed. Without hesitation I give this the sacred triple digits. 100/100

....That was bloody brilliant. Honestly, I never thought something like that could be done in this game. Ever. The editing is friggin spot on, and I actually felt drawn into this movie just like I would a "real" one.
The soundtrack in this game is amazing. AMAZING. I'd want it for my movies!
All in all, this FAR surpasses anything I've EVER seen made with The Movies.
Bravo, man. Keep up the amazing work: 5 stars!

Wow...well...WOW!!

Originality : 10/10. This movie has everything to be considered one of the most original movies on TMO ! Even to the world, this story is something never seen before !

Plot/Story : 10/10. It's almost like it's perfect ! The story is amazing and all the pieces come together as they should and make one Masterpiece ! I've never seen a movie movie on TMO with a story this well thoughtout ! You really raised the bar with this film. I can't wait to see your next films !

Subtitles/VO's : 8/10. The subtitles made me understand the whole story so bravo to that because you need to be able to do something like that ! The subtitles were more like a book, they absorbed me into the story and that's a gift when people can do that ! The lack of VO's cost you 2 points.

Editing : 10/10. I guess I could already give you 10 points just for the credits. So if you ask me I'd be giving you something like "Editing : 15/10" but i'm afraid I can't do that ! The editing was just perfect ! No seriously...It was. And the music was going in perfect harmony with the story ! Great job man !

"Wow ME Effect" : 10/10. Well, I guess you get that this movie blasted me away. It contains every element a film needs ! You might be the next Steven Spielberg !

OVERALL : 48/50. Ok, I admit it : This IS the best movie I've seen at TMO so far ! And I don't think it gets a lot better than this one ! The movie is definately worth those short 15 minutes (yes... times flyes when you're having fun).

Cheers,
Floyd_31.

An excellent film Rik, Very good use of music to setup your scenes. And excellent work on editing. This movie was carried by your great plot, great music, and great editing. Im not sure if it's upload issues but sound effects were off in a lot of places but thats just me being picky. This was a great film that kept me in my seat the whole 15 minutes, and you know its good cause I really have to pee. :)

Yep, this was really good. The emotions ran high, something that is unusual in a TMO sci-fi, and it was very well executed. I had some problems understanding the story, as I felt it was kind of rushed. Even though 15 minutes is long for TMO standards, I think this would have benefitted from being even longer, as you would have had more time to tell the actual story. I also agree that VO's would have been really good here, and with those, this would possibly have been the best movie I've seen so far here. As it is, it's really good.

Wow! More a movie-experience than just a movie. Great work, from well desigend actors, over fitting backdrops, to custom music with lots of variation. Sometimes the music didn't really fit the scene (like in the "beginning battle" scene at night), but it gave the movie quite a bit of unique flair. Cutting was also marvelous, how you matched the scenes to one another. The only negative thing about it I have to mention is that all those very short scenes,a ll fading in and out become strenuos on the eyes, especially in such a long movie, and it makes the whole movie look a bit like a trailer (which are often shot that way).

Stylish opening and some very nice editting. Agree with Traegon with regards to the subs (fortunately someone suggested that on my second film, a piece of advice I've stood by).

Oh god ... Oh GOD!!!! ... I think i might quit making movies because of this!! How can i compete against this?!! It's like Vinnie Jones trying to make a better movie than Steven Spielberg ... Damn that was amazing ...

Originality - 10 - not seen any other movie quite like it
Plot/Story - 10 - riveting
Dialogue - 9.5 - I invented the half mark just for this movie ... There were some fast subs at the begining basically (nit picking i know) but the rest was phenominal!
Editing - 9.5 - the fast subs and one minor thing when she is on the floor of the shack, the glass is too close to her body so it actually is INSIDE her ... but other than that that was absolutely imense! Perfection (almost)
"wow factor" - 10

Overall - 49 = 5* - Ok well when you get this good i start to get really really picky ... obviously what i picked out are really minor things and so it only took .5 for each... as a perfect 50 is just that it has to be Perfect ... so damn close ... so close i feel bad not giving you the 50 ... Just one question concerning the music ... Can I please know the name of that song at the end ... OMG i loved it! It was one of the best pieces of music i have heard! So please PM me with a name, or if it was done by you is there anywhere i can get it?!!!

- HLM-Production

Contrairement à d'autre, j'ai bien acroché à l'histoire. La réalisation est banal mais sans default. Pour les musiques, c'est vrai qu'elle aurai pu etre utiliser autrement, mais j'ai cru comprendre que tu les avait toi meme composer et ça ca vaut bien une étoile suplementaire. J'ai passer un bon moment. Bon film

Idem que Moreau...j'ai pas super accroché...! En revanche la musique du début est pas mal du tout...dommage qu'elle ne soit pas dans le même style après...! Côté réalisation...décidément je ne vais pas arriver à savoir comment vous faites des trucs comme ça...je t'ai bien envoyé un mail mais bon...rien...! 4 étoiles donc...! A bientôt...!

sympa mais sans plus
je reconnais que tu as fait un sacre travail mais je n'ai pas accroché a l'histoire ni a l'univers de ton film
pourtant le debut partait bien mais cela est aussi beaucoup du aux musiques que je trouve pas du tout adequate pour le film ( question de gout )ca fait trop musiques pour film a l'eau de rose et je n'aime pas trop

Amazing science fiction piece, sweeping in scope yet emotional at its core...

This flick has it all - a thoughtful story, terrific characters that you identify with and care about, an outstanding score, and excellent editing and shots. The filmmaker knows the story he wants to tell, and does it in a way that's superior in both concept and execution.

The story is interesting, exciting, and ultimately moving as well. With or without voice overs, it packs a powerful punch.

Great work. You should be very proud of yourself.

Un très bon film qui a du te demander pas mal de travail ... La réalisation est pas mal ainsi que l'histoire (enfin, pour ce que j'en ai compris) et bravo pour tes compositions ! Bref, pour une première production c'est très bien ... A bientôt pour ton prochain film !

Quite a good movie, story and edited well. The music considering it was custom was well done. As you are aware VO would polish this movie off, but that is not something that should be held against you. However considering the length it is a bit long for subtitles, in my opinion.

Posted on January 18, 2006

Just terrific. Music was amazing, intro blew me away. The switch to the normal city did take away a little from the movie, but it was really, really great. Seemed shorter than some of the crappy 2 minute noodles. Movies. You see around the place.

Wow. Great job :) Music was awesome. Originally, I was going to give this 4. A couple tips, some of the subs were a bit quick and if in a scene with more than one character, be sure to clarify the speaker :) But it goes to 5, because of the inadvertant mistake in dialogue where she goes 'Thrust me' Hehe

Not bad, kind of lost interest in the end but a very good effort. The music was brilliant and the use of sets was very good with the swooping camera takes, you do like your fade outs don't you :).
It says above that you got Voice Actors, i didn't hear any talk but it was good story and the subtitles gave the film its momentum.
Keep it up and i look forward to your next film. Don't think i said this already but that music was cool.
