Ah hell, dont matter howmany times I check em over I never see the last couple of mistakes till after its uploaded!
Well I aint doing your work for ya...you spot em! ;)

*****************************
Notes; The soundtrack has been commented on for stopping, being choppy. Well I was trying to achieve an effect, like a pause for thought in the lead chars mind but it seems it wasnt done too well, too jarring, I will have to work on that.
I was worried about the speed of subs, I tried to fit a lot of dialogue in but we all know how hard that can be. Happily most people seem to be ok with that part though I know there are 2 scenes where I would prefer them on view longer.
This is the first film I made where I seriously considered getting a VO actor in, however time constraints, some dubious sound quality on some of the examples I have seen, and the doubts over anyone being able to give a performance that matches the one in my head for the Narrator made me stick with Subs. Ninja's be Damned!
Thanks for watching and all your comments.

Somehow, I missed this movie, but now I finally took the time to watch it... and it was a wise decision. Man, it's really beautiful. It clearly seems that you put this movie together carefully and lovingly. Everything is perfect: the atmospheric music, the effective directing... there are two things that really stand out, however.
The first is the great work you put into the characters' appearance. All of them is created and dressed carefully, so their appearance tells everything about them, we don't need any words. Red is modest, nice and beautiful, Ronnie is a mean b**** (till the sudden change in the end), the main character is filled with guilt, sadness and regret. Even the supporting characters (like the barmaid) are designed with great care.
The best thing is, of course, the story. Not only it's beautiful, but with the effective "looking-back" plot structure you keep the viewer guessing till the last moment. It's sad, unpredictable, exciting and unforgettable at the same time.
Overall, an outstanding movie. Congratulations!

powerful stuff:

Originality - 10 - very poetic, an inspired piece if ever i saw it!
Plot/Story - 10 - a very very well written story
Dialogue - 8 - The subs as you have noticed were a bit fast at the end and start to the point where i had to pause the film and it ruined the ambience.
Editing - 7 - Aside from the subs the film was really well cut and edited. Great job.
"wow factor" - 10 - I loved it, very arty and thoughtful.

This one is... a real masterpiece ! Thank you for doing it, it's the most beautiful i've seen yet on TMO. It got me like a really good real film. Text is simply excellent, the leitmotiv of "blue valentines" is really strong and moving. I wish I have a better english, to tell you how much i loved your film. This HAS to be a hot pick. Great great work !

Another solid script. Another tight plot that ties it together smoothly and in a very satisfying manner. Emotions are handled with tact and precision. Another great movie from Apocryphon.

This is a studio that consistently turns out high quality material. This movie was a pleasure to watch!

***Moviewood E! Romance Reviewer***

PhantomRaouls' music really sets a good atmosphere. I really like his stuff, I'm planning to use myself sometime.

Loved your character moddeling, very realistic, it brought them to life. I like it when people use starmaker, it adds so much to a movie.

The plot and the dialogue were excellent. I could feel the emotions of the characters. The love, the hate, the happiness, the sadness.

What freaked me out, was that Ronnie reminded me of my ex-wife. She was paronoid bi-polar and had tried to kill me, that's why she is an ex-wife.

This is a romance with depth, I shall be bookmarking this film.

This is just great. I love the gritty way you made the characters look. The music. The story. The emotion. A top top romance.

Well done movie. Had a nice Film Noir feel to it.

Good pacing and editing. (I didn't notice the auido problem).
Good script. Subtitles were well done as well.

The only thing I would like to have seen was more of an introduction to the characters.

The subtitles were fine for me, I kept up with them easily. The music was great, and the whole film was well edited. A good story, although I didn't get a lot of it, but that goes down to my stupidity and not your movie. Good character development, and the weather and lighting really helped to set the mood. Loved the ending!

A movie full of emotion. It isn't bad that there is no voice, actually so the music got more important, and what do you want with such wonderful music?! Five stars for this movie full of a emotional story and a great soundtrack, no question.

There are lots of things in this film that I like. I love your use of custom music. It really helps substitute the lack of VOs in this film and it works well. The music develops the mood and setting.

The story was very original and I loved it. It felt very moving with both the narrative of the man, his relationships with the two women, Ronni and Red, and the music supplementing each other. However, the "Blue Valentines" thing had that sense of poetry when he said it, which I think is still a good thing.

A couple crits would be how the bar became dark (@4:32) all of a sudden as the man sat down and read his Blue Valentine. I wasn't quite sure why it was like this. Did another person happened to turn off the light? Or maybe it's a passage of time but I couldn't tell because there was no fade.

Your movie also has symptoms of the "Street Car Audio" bug which happens when you cut a city scene with a car (in case, the one which Ronni hit-and-runs Red) in it and the car sound carries over to other scenes. It kind of leveraged some of the mood as my attention diverted to that noise ... but on the other hand, it worked well as the man was walking in the street. It gives me the idea that the night was busy. So in this case, it was a double-edge sword.

On the other hand, I did like that slight replay effect you did as Red got hit by Ronni. It shows emphasis.

Overall, I did like this movie as I found it touching and tragic. It's emotional and well put together.

4.7 -- Silver Favorite

You know just once i'd like to see a real happy ending in a romance movie, i'm sure they do exist somewhere... The music was pretty powerful it really suited the atmosphere and I thought it was interesting how you told the story in a monologue style instead of having each character speak. Subtitles were almost perfect except you kept spelling didn't as did'nt for some reason. Dialogue was nice, it had kind of a local town feel, i've certinally heard nobody speak like that before. But if I hear the word "ole" one more time i'll go mad!

Emotional movie, sensitive people be warned.

This is tragic and incredibly well done. It draws you in without realising it and takes us on a torn journey. Very original, very emotional and well deserving five stars.

originality 9/10 had emotion most romance film lack, nice job
diolouge; 9/10 again, with good emotion, but VO's seem like a must when you have great music and great script, however the script is solid
sound 9/10 good music for the moments, it helped keep me watching
editing; 9/10 good pacing, it had the elements of romance here
PawPrint Factor 9/10 the film was good, it wasn't all that and a bag of chips good

45/50 a five star film...barely :D but you defintly deserve this review

Yes, this is a very beautiful piece, a demonstration that you can tell a good story using TMO. The music fits beautifully, but the most impressive thing is the story, so well written, so original that I'm really jealous. Every single second of the movie is well done.

Yowza. I got a taste of apoc's writing and had to check his flicks out and I wasn't disappointed. This is a very nicely paced, involving, captivating story with just the right mix of drama, heartbreak, and poignant romance. Excellent, lyrical scripting, in the form of nearly poetic subtitles, draws the viewer along deftly. A successful, intriguing piece.

Very touching story, and particularly well told. The music was a nice background. The dialogue of the subtitles was some of the best I've read on TMO to date. Makes a nice change! Of course, voice overs would have been better, but no lost marks on that front.

Extremely well done!

This was a beautiful piece of work apocryphon. Great use of shots and well and music had a nice input in setting the mood. A very powerful film, with elements of compassion used effectively. Characters were portrayed very distinctive and the whole concept was executed really well.. Very talented skills in your work, however i think this film would have a bigger impact if you included VO's.

A Blue Valentine linked from start till the end, this is another film that showing you have a talent to tell a story.

But I do recommand you to seek for Voice actors in TMO, I'm sure there is alot of helpful person there willing to help you with Voice Acting. Lack of one star not because of no VO's, just the story wasn't interesting enough.


p/s :I must say this is good, but not as good as "45".

I'm a big Tom Waits fan and you really got the feel of one or many of his songs. i liked all the little refrences. not to sure about the amount of fade outs (but i dont really like using them anyway) love the use of sets and the pacing a great build up with out resorting to shameless action

MOMC Levelling 4.8 (5)

My minor deductions are for the problems you already know you have. The rest of this is pure bliss of the most painful kind. Which is kind of like real life, as another reviewer noted. This is simply a beautiful story told well, with characters that felt like real people, including all the flaws and gifts implied. Lovely.

Magnificent! It is amazing what a true artist can do with this game. Blue Valentines is perfect in every way. It all goes to show that a great film always begins with a great story, proceeds in hard work, and ends with kudos from a fan like me.

One of the best romances on this thing for several reasons.
1. it had an in depth storyline
2. The edditing all added up to make a great film
3. Although it didn't have vo's the dialogue it was very clever
4.It was basically an intelligent movie, not like some movies on here.

I only had one major problem. I think you could of changed the actor of Red, I think she didn't look right for the role.

I see no problem with the music being too choppy. In fact, I think it worked out well, lending the film some emotion. Could VOs have made it better? Possibly. But, the subtitles were good enough for me. They weren't too fast, said what they had to say, and gave us a narrative understanding of what was going on. The editing and timing of each scene also worked out nicely. I really have no qualms about your film :) Five stars all the way!

I really liked this. It had an involving plot and a soundtrack that really added to the atmosphere of the piece.

I must admit that I sometimes lost track of the flashback sequences but that was probably more to do with the limitations of the software than a writing issue.

All in all, 4 stars from me. Not my favourite genre but it held my attention until the end so well done!

Orginality 10/10 Highly orginal, fresh, romance
Plot/Story 8/10 Great thick plot...
Dialogue 8/10 Wording was good..thought you clda done without some of the catchy popular one liners.
Editing 9/10 Minues one point for some subs (but not many) moving ot quickly. Overall in post pro you did a pretty good job.
"wow factor" 10/10 I loved the movie...highly orginal for a romance movie. Some scary realism involved.

Total 45/50 = 90% = Soft 5 Stars. Strong Points: Orginality, Plot

What a great piece of work. Full of emotion but never soppy. Top notch editing and really good atmosphere, helped by the music. The narrative was particularly outstanding. I notice there's a 1 star review given to this movie for the simple reason that it doesn't have voiceovers. Sorry, but if that's the main ingredient for a decent movie then we should all give up now. I actually think it would not have been as good if it had VOs.

5 Stars. The story was really good. I was paying enough attention to catch those minor text issues or what ever, but it didn't distract me from the movie. VO's would really have pushed this up to the next level, but without them, it stands on it's own. I normally don't like this sort of movie, but this one was done so well I didn't have a choice.

A slow drama.
It wasn't what I expected, wasn't bad but didn't really grib me either.
Maybe an good VO going with the narration would have help this movie, so it seems to repetitiv.
Also the music was a problem, it ended to sudden and at times it simply didn't fit the mood.

But maybe my expectations of this movie where to great...

This is how a real romance movie is made! This is my favorite movie for the genre on TMO. Things that stood out:
1. The music accentuated the mood.
2. The use of dollies made it feel like a classic romantic movie
3. The characters' appearance matched their personality. (especially Ronni)
4. And of course the story is something that was very touching. It created an emotional attachment to the audience(which few movies ever do).

I too, didn't think a romance can be pulled off. This is one the superior movies on TMO, and stands alone on the Romance genre.

I am not one for romance movies. But, this one was well paced and well edited. VO could have helped it, but better to have subtitles than poorly done VO in a romance movie. The story was good and dialogue was fairly realistic. Worth 5 stars.

I can't say more than the others here... my skin is... (don't know how's said in english, in spanish is said "tengo la piel de gallina" lol).
Great movie with "real" characters. Only need a good VO and a little more work on music for be absolutely perfect movie in his genre! Gratz and thanks for make this movie :)

No question - a five starrer.

As a professional musician, I can tell you that the music was superb. I studied this minimalist style at university and this was better than most of the stuff I studied. But, most importantly, it was perfect for this film.

It's films like this which show the potential of the human imagination to create something meaningful with just the most meagre of tools.

A beautifully written film, with an atmosphere to match. That's the key - this film works without any V.O. because the music communicates the key emotions and the subtitles fill in the details. It's excellent.

The best romance yet for me.

I am a real fan of the romance genre and this certainly is how a romance should be made. It told a story, an emotional one at that, which managed to find all the right levels to completely involve me in the characters.

The music was a sensational choice and was a perefect fit as it gave a sense of happiness but a sense of sorrow at the same time. And i'm not going to fault you on the lack of v/o because in all seriousness a v/o would have made the movie less emotional. The music told a story all in itself which was great.

The dialogue was well scripted and flowed extremely well throughout the 7 minutes and the subtitles were used well despite a few instances of them moving to fast.

You have made a fantastic romance film which tells a realistic story in an emotional and touching way. Well Done.

My review will be short....as i feel that words would be poor to say what i feel.
How to describe emotions ?
That is life, it emotions, how they can make you dream, how they can make you cry.
It is blue.
It is blue valentine
And nose kick to voices fanatics

Summary - Very beautiful romance film, I honestly didn't think anyone could pull a romance off on TMO. You did it man, keep up the great work. Best romance film I have seen yet.
Pros - Great romance story, even without VO.
Cons - No VO.
Suggestions - Make a film with VO, with the script you wrote it would be amazing.

An interesting movie with good music and almost flawless editing (2nd telephone call cut). The story went out a bit different from what I expected, but in a positive way

What makes you think i cannot read? :-)

Very complex, with subtle undertones and flavors. Sounds more like I'm describing a wine than a movie, but that in itself should tell you something about this film.

Youre really good at these kind of things.
Youre charcters stop being characters, and takes a life on theire own.
Your story is beliveble, and theres great music that will play on all the right emotions.
Extremly well done.
Editing superb.

The music stoped during at least 2 times, in a way that made me first think there were something wrong with my audio. Not sure if it was my computer, or me thinking you could have done that better. =P

I think the movie should have ended with the audience looking at the main character as he walks across the road. The phone call, I think said it all. If you wanted to be sure the audience got it, you could have made the call a tad more obvious. (though I personally dont think thats nesecary either. In my opinion it was all rather clear already) The last scene with the ex, where a tad abundant to my likeing.

That said, its a beutifull piece of art you got here....as well.

PhantomRaouls' music really sets a good atmosphere. I really like his stuff, I'm planning to use myself sometime.

Loved your character moddeling, very realistic, it brought them to life. I like it when people use starmaker, it adds so much to a movie.

The plot and the dialogue were excellent. I could feel the emotions of the characters. The love, the hate, the happiness, the sadness.

What freaked me out, was that Ronnie reminded me of my ex-wife. She was paronoid bi-polar and had tried to kill me, that's why she is an ex-wife.

This is a romance with depth, I shall be bookmarking this film.

This is just great. I love the gritty way you made the characters look. The music. The story. The emotion. A top top romance.
