Film Description
A New Movie from Dreadful Day Films. A Story of an Evil Galactic Emperor who hears rumors of a Great Treasure and invades a planet to take the treasure.

Edit*
"..Taken from the song One Tin Soldier.."
You are correct. This is what inspired the idea for this short movie. Good Call RALLTD, I always liked that song since hearing it when I was a kid.

Originality:6/10 Taken from the song One Tin Soldier by Coven(I think).A very good song,but it doesn't make this an original piece of work.(Theme to Billy Jack)

Plot /Story:8/10 I applaud you for accomplishing so much in a short movie,story was good.

Dialogue:8/10 Decent writing,and subs.

Editing:8/10 Good job here for telling the story quickly.I read the description and saw the length and didn't think I would really like this movie.

Wow:7/10 Good job over all here ,I wasn't shocked by the ending because I know the song.You did a good job of putting it to pictures.

I think you thought about this a lot. Very deep. If you didn't, well you got lucky. I liked the Emporor it just goes to show what you can do with save custom costumes! Could have been longer but still great!

More time or more story could of made this alot better. I didn't care about that planet. They could of turned everyone into slaves because I didn't care what happened to them. Then the subs were fast or in the wrong scene. Keep making movies

Alright movie, but it was a little too short to tell a well-developed story. It had a nice theme and concept. Good editing and music choice.

sci fi, but used wrong sets and...lacked the Wow factor, average, nothing made it above average [4 stars] so its average [3 stars]

Nice message. Could use voiceovers. Subtitles were not up long enough, and a few carried over from one scene to the next.

Nice movie.
The editing was good and the plot had an unexpected twist at the end.
If you were aiming at making a movie with a message that was under 2 minutes, you succeeded. :)
However, it was too short and the message of the movie wasn't put forward well.
The plot, although it was quite good, needed some work.
Apart from that, not bad!

The message could have been emphasized more, and the story was a bit weak and short, but it had great potential and it wasn't all that bad.

a movie with a message, this is something very rare at TMO...
good job

You managed to cram the story into one and a half mins which was an accomplishment.
For a very short film this was better than I expected with endearing message to it.
What there was of it was well done.
Good Work

nice short but I think you have to use more set editing and post-production and develop more the story

I thought it was well put together and it had a nice plot/storyline but i felt it could have been longer, had more characters and could of had more action but overall good job.

The story is a little short and the subs are a little to fast for non-engrish people, but this is not a big deal. I liked the message brought within this movie.

A interesting idea although I thought it was on the short side. It might make a good pilot for a series though. Good Work

If i were in a good mood. mayb 2*'s.
Unfortunatly im in a bad mood. and that sucked.

I really liked this.The ending definitely makes this movie,and the buildup to it is done quite well.
I believe if you were to re-work this a bit and maybe raise the impact of the ending with a change in the music,you could see an abundance of 5 stars coming your way...

Very enjoyable. Smooth editing, and interesting story. The last screen went by a little too quickly to really give us the full impact of the message.

Good costuming, especially the alien. watch your spelling and grammar if you want your subtitles to be effective. Good, simple, effective way to push a strong message. Well done!

Posted on March 4, 2006
- Medic911

well, subtitles went by a bit fast, but they were still effective. 2star scripting, for your good ideas and clear message. all 2 production stars though, i considered giving only 1 star due to the subtitle speed, but the edditing and tranitions were still good, so i could not bring myself to do it.
if you like james bond, time tunnel, or (soon arriving) terminator, give this a shot. http://movies.lionhead.com/studio/Medic911

Good short film. If there is one criticism, I feel you could have used a little more imagination in the sets and scene selection. The story and the general execution were otherwise good.

Editing perfect.
Costumes and casting great.
Music greatly choosen.
The message as well as the feeling the movie conveys were great.
As short it was, it was great. Mayhep just because it was so short. Then again, the movie being so short, the feeling it left, was somewhat mixed, with the one, I gets after looking at a commercial...

Short but sweet. I was going to say you could extend it, but then I realized it was a take of One Tin Soldier about halfway through. Good work!

good movie with an important message

Posted on February 19, 2006
- chrishall9

The emperor's costume was very good. The editing was good. You might have used a backdrop to show the message and shown a bit of the destruction to the planet in your end titles but I'm not going to mark you down for that. Good effort.

Good work, I just thought the ending was lame. I know this makes me sound like a psycho, but I thought it would be funnier if their treasure was a bomb...

to be honest i didnt really like it. its not because it was a bad kovie i just personally didnt like it.

Nice movie, I'm not advertising or suggesting anything but in a funny sort of way it reminded me of one of my movies. It was really good much better than mine and I liked how the music added to the atmosphere. Keep it up and good luck. :)

If it is from a song i have to say : "RESPECT". I guess i listen to the wrong music because i don't get the ideas for my movies while listening to music. The movie is really good. A good story in such a short time.
Well done!

This is a very good movie with a strong message! To tell such a story in 1 min 50 is very good!

Good movie but not alot really happened, no character development and not really any story just the point at the end, it just felt a bit emotionless.
Hope to see more of your work.

Mh...I'm getting flashbacks of "Billy Jack"...

I was wondering why the movie's plot sounded familiar. Well done. Thanks for not playing the song during the end credits ;)

A well made little short. The story was good, if a little rushed but you got the point across. Some of the subtitles were too quick and the editing could have been cleaner. Otherwise good work.

good for a short movie and finding a planet with no tresure on it is funny and only thing missing is no voiceovers

You do have a very good idea for a nice movie. Your subtitles were too fast, and some scenes were cut too quickly. I did like Serene's custom outfit however. You have great ideas, and thank you for sharing this treasure with us all.

Good job in telling a decent story in short time, without skipping over details.

Nice movie, I was surprised by the ending. I agree with Suedenim about the subs being to short at times.

Posted on February 5, 2006

Nice job telling a full story in such a short running time!

My standard boilerplate subtitles comment: It's not necessary (and in fact slightly annoying) to use character names in subtitles. Check how it's done on DVD subtitle tracks. Generally, the technique is only necessary when the speaker is off-camera or otherwise can't be identified.

Subtitles also seemed a little too short at times, and you should try not to let them overrun the beginning of a new scene or camera angle if possible (to avoid distracting the viewer's eye.)
