I can't say enough how good of a job you did on dressing the sets. It's obvious that you paid close attention to every detail. The voice over work was great. I can tell you had a lot of fun with this.

That's an excellent fairy tale! Loved it!! Excellent job with the ogre, like the ground that moves etc... everything is great!
At least a good dose of fresh air into TMO!
Muy Bueno, hombre! :)

Gran trabajo, y aunque la historia no sea de bestseller creo que veremos pocas asi por aqui, por lo tanto la originalidad no le falta. Como casi todos, creo que se emrece el 5.

Yes, very good indeed! a good fantasy tale, a good Fairy Tale with the traditional good-ending ;)
Some of the translating i must belive was not quite 100% But it was mostly good :D

Es la mejor que e visto de todas las tuyas. Unos efectos y escenarios muy conseguidos y la historia, aunque sea la tipica de alguien que no es aceptado y patatin patatan esta muy bien ambientada en ese mundo un tanto absurdo.
Excelente trabajo

Pretty interesting story. can't really fault you for being in the comedy section section since there is NO fantasy section. Perhaps Scifi would be more appropriate though?
For a COMPLETELY opposite kind of story check out my flick Mr.Popo:PSA1
It's a mean-spirited comedy with minimalistic use of scenes

Estupenda película. Me encanta el toque naif de su guión. Es de esas historias mágicas que no se sabe si son para niños maduros o para adultos infantiles. Visualmente también es fantástica. El ligero problema que le veo se encuentra en el ritmo, sobre todo al comienzo.

RPCM review:

Originality: 10/10 can't give you any less, you are the master of fantasy on TMO!

Story/Character Development: 8/10 The story was fairly good, a well told fairytale, maybe a bit too cliche, characters were well crafted with good personalities.

Dialogue/Music: 7/10, dialogue and VOs were quite good and well done (like the ogre) but music could have been a bit better.

Modding/Something Really Different: 10/10 good modding (shots of the castle and great backdrops) and absolouely brilliant use of props to make it seem like a surreal courtyard.

Execution: 7/10, I've seen better by you, I loved Evil Valley but this was pulled off quite well too.

42/50=4 stars, you missed out on the magic 5 by one, sniff. I will now check out POWER origin.

A very good movie you have created here, it must of took you awhile to create all the custom backdrops and even the custom sets! As I don't speak Spanish, I can't comment on the VO however I thought the pace of the subtitle was done very well and the translation to English was very good and clear. However, I thought the story wasn't that great and it didn't make me laugh (the odd smile here and there) nonetheless, it kept me interested to watch the whole way. Overall, a very good movie!

(you reminded me i hadn't reviewed this):

Originality - 10 - havent seen anything like this on TMO before
Plot/Story - 7 - Well the story was well thought if a little predictable, but still a very good story
Dialogue (subs) - 9 - Couldn't figure out what to rate the dialogue, english isn't your first language so i can't mark down for spelling or flow of the subs, i also didn't understand the VO's so this leaves me to mark only for content and placement of the subs - which was very very good!
Editing - 10 - Anyone that spends that long set dressing deserves a 10 in my eyes! :) Plus it was just fantastically made!
"wow factor" - 9 - I found myself liking this film alot!

Overall - 45 - 5* - A great film well made, well written! Great stuff! :)

Excellent movie. Great edit. Splendid choice of music. Stunishing VO.

The story...Well, its good, though I think its a tad too much of a childrens story for my likeing. Now, dont get me wrong, as far as childrens story goes, this was a good one, but just slightly to simplyfied for me. I dont think fairytales need to be simple, just because theire tales.
Due to the simplyfication of the story, I really think your movie is worth 4 stars, but due to imagination, great effort, and just for showing what can be done with TMO, I'll give you an extra star.

I do hope all this skills you posses (and what great skills they are) will be used on some more delicate and complex stories in the future.

Amazing set dressing, innovative use of costumes to create a different kind of story... I have nothing bad to say about this one. A highly unique, original piece that truly manages to nail the themes and style it's going for. Well done!

Posted on February 15, 2006
- NUNBERRY

I can't really add much to what's already been said, but you'd be hard pressed to recognise any of the sets in here with the amount of dressing going on, it's fantastic work. It's hard to judge a voiceover in a language I don't understand but the right emotional notes are coming through at appropriate times. The Fairy Queen's STs are impossible to read without the pause button, but that's my fault for not speaking spanish! Story-wise, this is a simple enough tale but it makes for a sweet little fairy story, and the where-is-he-now ending is good for a chuckle. Fantastic stuff, thoroughly enjoyable. Uno mas!

- FLIPMANBURN

I thought this a great flick. Top notch editing and a seemless score help really drive this film. The dialog was, for the most part, well done and the VO was right on. The storyline was like a classic fairy tale, with very well done FX to help back up the fantasy plot. Overall, This is a must see for anyone who likes classic story telling. - 4 stars

This was a pretty darn good film. I normally dread haveing to watch a long film, but this was enjoyable. It is nice hearing a spanish accent as opposed to the mexican accents I hear down here in Texas. Some of your translations to english were wrong, but thats expected and I still could understand the whole time. The editing and custom backdrops were nice additions as well and I loved the costumes. It was a cute story. I personally like movies that have some narraration. Helps add to it. Overall great job. I am going to check out some more of your films. I GIVE IT...5 STARS

This is well made film. The custom BD's and attention to detail of the costumes and sets is fantastic.
However the VO's are all very samey, even if i only speak English, and i found the plot a little purile and bizaar. I know it's a comedy, but since this film is billed as the first Fantasy I would have liked to see some real fanatsy action and not just silly jokes.

But a very well made movie that shows the potential of this studio!

Posted on February 13, 2006
- JazzX

Very good - loved the sets and the costumes and the editing. At last, a proper fantasy film for "The Movies". The subtitles needed improving though - some lines were just baffling (and harmed the flow of the story as a result). The music wasn't always used appropriately either - some of the cues didn't fit very well.

Nevertheless. A spirited effort from start to finish with minor flaws.

I wish I knew how to do some of the stuff this movie demonstrates. The ground shaking effect completely escapes me!

- Masquerade37

Although it was an original idea, and lots of work and detail was put into the movie, I couldn't help but feel the story was lacking. I expected something more, esspecially since the ogre was badly portrayed as a villan. And fairies know Kung Fu? Strange. It's a nice movie, but it needed something more.

Atmosphere in the movie was fantastic: the use of props, backdrop and VO created a whole "fantasy feeling", although the movies isn't created for that.
Using the old story teller was also a good idea in this perspective.
The story wasn't that original, but it was OK.

MOMC Review

A Fairy Tale
A film by Arawna11

This film is beautifully done from an artistic and technical standpoint. Without knowing spanish, I could still tell that the voice overs are good. The 'storytelling' setting at the start was nicely portrayed - the addition of coughing was a marvellous touch - and it is a very pretty film. It's certainly original as far as TMO is concerned and a marvellous effort at bringing something fresh. The humour is well done too, and is not lost in translation.

For me, the story lacked something, and although it had a terrific start,I felt it fizzled out to some extent and didn't quite live up to what I hoped it would be. It may well be that it loses something in translation, but I can only judge the story as it unfolded to me.

This film is well worth taking a look at and earns a very solid 4 stars. I look forward to seeing more from the same stable.

4.2

MOMC Review 4.6 (5)
"Promise the Lord of Mud, the Master of Earthworms and the Supreme Excrement that you will not damage anyone here. " Ever seen the old Jim Hensen "The Storyteller" series from the 1980s? Well this movie is what would happen if Jim and his gang had done that series in spanish while on a really longer [wash your mouth out!] of some kind (possibly several [wash your mouth out!]s at once). This is high praise I assure you. There are some small technical issues; some of the subtitles were a bit hard to read in that cursivey font and the VOs could use just a little work. But this is an excellent (albeit understated) comedy with a unique storytelling style in these parts. Very well done indeed.

Posted on February 11, 2006
- downphoenix

AMAZING use of sets and props, easily one of the best I have seen on that. I also liked the Ogre character, and the plot of the story, although the transition of scenes were abrupt, and though most of the english subtitles were understandable enough, there was a few that were downright confusing. Great work though, smoother scene transitions and a little work on the subtitles would go a long way, and enjoyable considering its length.

Posted on February 11, 2006
- filmdirector22

I'm giving four stars because of the custom sets/backdrops, however I didn't follow the story-- the subtitle translations were sketchy.

Posted on February 11, 2006

I overlooked the bad translations, & even then I liked it, but didn't love it. I'll give you a good score of 3 stars just on originality & the use of sets & backdrops.

Posted on February 10, 2006
- Colossus007

I found this quite entertaining although the plot did lack subtlety in some areas, yet with a little more tweaking with the story and maybe even a few more comedy scenes, then Im sure this 3-star will bump up to a 5-star!

Posted on February 10, 2006
- NinjaPenguin32

A decent movie, I don't think it deserves as high a score as it does, the only bad things about it are that it seems to be ripped off from Shrek, and the translation was pretty bad, but if you know spanish, it's probably a lot better.

The name was what caught my notice "a fairy tale!? on the movies!?" but it has to be said that this is THE most refreshing movie i have ever seen. i personally have seen enough WAR and SCI-FI films to last me a life time. this film however is totally original in every aspect and the voice overs were spot on as well! It make me proud to be a movie maker when i know that peeps can still come up with new stuff when they only have very limited sets, actions and clothes.

overall thats 5 stars for you!

I would not have thought that such a beautifull fairytale was possible with The Movies yet. You have done the gendre absolute justice with gorgeous set decorations and the obligatory narrator. The story was a bit simple, but you have managed to make a really enjoyable and truly magic movie out of it.

Jejejeje, bastante curiosa la historia del ogro sobretodo el final xD

La inclusión de las voces le dar mayor credibilidad y gracia a los personajes, felicidades !!!

It's like magic. I didn't think it possible to make a fantasy movie with "The Movies" editor which doesn't support this genre at all. But you made it!

WHAT I LIKED: 1. The story was like a child's tale, beautiful and without violence. It's a rarity.
2. The voice of the ogre.
3. The resourceful use of props and costumes to create the fantasy mood. The garden of the tower was absolutely amazing.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The VO of the faerires. The use of male voice for female characters can very easily ruin a whole movie. (This time, however, I could forgive this.) :)

An excellent and refreshing movie. My only complaint would be that it sounds like you used one person to do all the voices. I would strongly suggest next time to get some friends to help you out. Just my thoughts and what it sounded like.

This film gave me the feeling of old disney tales. The custom backdrop was very nice and fit very well with the rest of the story. The subtitles are understandable an there is no complaint on them. Very magical movie with a magical ending.

Muy lograda. Te has pegado un buen curro sin duda. La ambientación es muy buena, y has hecho un gran uso de la disponibilidad de atretzzo. Como mucha gente opina, el aspecto a mejorar es la propia história en sí. Mi nota es un 8,5

Hay películas que enganchan por su argumento, otras por el carisma de los personajes... esta peli engancha por su atractivo visual, sin duda. Con unos buenos backdrops y colocando objetos en el escenario de forma inteligente se puede conseguir hacer una peli bonita y atractiva a la vista, como en este caso. Aparte de eso, has dado un muy buen uso a las escenas (los pisotones del ogro, etc.), y la historia, sin ser una maravilla consigue transmitir la fantasía de los cuentos de hadas. Y tambien hay que mencionar el hecho de que tenga voces, claro...

Te pondría cuatro estrellas (el guion no está mal pero es mejorable) ...pero esta es de esas películas que no me importaría ver mas de una vez, debido a que visualmente es preciosa. Y las pelis con las que no tengo problema en mirarlas de nuevo se merecen las 5 estrellas ;)

no me han sorpredido los decorados pues de eso entiendo un poquitin. las voces muchas veces suenan como que la misma persona las intenta imitar y queda algo mal. hay muchos momentos de pausa y la musica no es la mas adecuada. los back son buenos pero no se si seran creaciones tuyas. la historia es bastante vulgar creo que ese ha sido el gran fallo, con otro tipo de historia mas trabajada la pelicula seria buenisima.bueno es mi punto de vista espero que la proxima sea mejor.saludos

A absolutely wonderful breath of freash air. And while the story itself is not that compelling, the execution is so brilliantly executed it draws you into it's majesty. I really felt like I was in a different world. A High Five star score of 92/100.

Storyline: ***** Excellent storyline...Went along smoothly!
Music: **** I thought some of the music did not suit it very well.
Dialouge: ***** Perfect subtitles and voiceovers (even though I couldn't understand them)!
Editing: **** I think there were somethings you could've removed from the film, which might've made it a little better.
Atmosphere: ***** The backdrops and sets in this film combined together to create a beautiful atmosphere of heart-warming comedy!
My Comment: I believe you did a wonderful job, especially with making a film without any of the genres in the game. Keep up making films like this one, and you'll probably get VC by the second!

Total Rating: 23/25 Mini-Stars
Overall Rating: 5 Stars (wow!)

Astoundingly well used props and custom backdrops. I think you could have paced it a bit faster,but I always say that, I should really pace my own stuff a bit slower :).

You have brought the fairy tale genre to TMO.

Charming, inventive, and funny! Excellent movie! I love the voiceovers, even though I don't understand Spanish. (Actually, some of my favorite VOs are in languages I don't understand!) There was a bit of "popping" on the microphone now and then, but generally the quality was very good.

One minor thing - the "Romance" subtitles tend to be difficult to read in Online quality. It's unfortunate, but a lot of the fonts Lionhead provided to us are like that....

I look forward to more from the old storyteller in the future!

Beautiful!
Who would have thought a Fairy Tale to be possible with 'The Movies'?
Well, not me.
But you proved me wrong with a nice, warm story right in the vein of films like Shrek or The Princess Bride that yet shows enough originality of it's own...
You show the same sprinkling humour through out your movie and gave it an almost seamless flow.
Also I have to praise your VO: You managed to give your characters funny voices that where nonetheless believable.
You did a great movie with a few minor flaws:
Mostly it's the flicker you get when you underlay a sub to different scenes.
To sum it up: Gracias! for a really entertaining movie.

The fact that this is the first fantasy film and well edited makes me give you 4 stars. Other than that the story isn't much special. Well done though!

You could have used some opening music on this. It sets a mood for the coming scenes, no matter the language. The editing was off in a few scenes, the first dance line, in example. In any language, it's pretty easy to tell a man pretending (and doing it HORRIBLY) to sound like a woman.

But I DID like this. The sets were fantastic, the costuming was masterful, and the story fun to watch. It could have moved a little faster, but being as unique as it is, the movie more than makes up for it.

Great original movie. Wonderful imagination on the story. Beautiful costumes and backdrops. Some tighter editing could make this even more powerful - a few of the subtitles were hard to read. I would suggest looking at StevenKregs King Kong movies to see how he used bushes to make King Kong appear large - this would have worked well with the ogre shots as well. I loved the way you used the jolt scenes. I really enjoyed this.

Set dressing was incredibly detailed...I can't imagine the amount of work put into it.

New backdrops were refreshing to see and all were well-made.

Voices were loud and clear and the English subtitles really helped an old English-only guy sort it out. The one Romance font is always a pain to read though--for future reference.

I also give you high marks for originality.

A good story, a good fairy tale, and visually overwhelming, but I'm still not sure why it was listed as a comedy. There were two or three funny bits but not funny throughout--although I didn't take points off for that because (A) the few funny bits in the movie made me laugh right out loud and (B) the fact of all the work involved overshadows any tiny flaws.
A very good film. Good luck!

Orginality 10/10 Wow someone did a fantasy genre film. Ive never scene props used this well.
Plot/Story 9/10 Well thought out story with a plot easy to find.
Dialogue 9/10 I lost all my espanol skills when I left college lol but the emotion in the vo's were enough to let the viewer know the proper "feel" to each scenes emotion. nice job!
Editing 9/10 Again the best prop work ive scene in a movie.
Wow Factor 10/10 Im truely impressed.. I loved it.. Glad I came across this one.

Original and masterfully done.Visually a treat to watch.Although I don't understand Spanish,the vocals were great as far as the characterizations are concerned.The English subtitles have some missing bits and are sometimes done in such a way as to be a little disjointed,but I think this just adds to the charm of the movie...so I really think that turned out to be a good thing also:-)
I can't think of anything negative...oh wait there is one negative...I can't give you more than 5 stars haha...
