Awwww that was really sweet! :)

Originality - 9 - This was one of the nicest "romance" movies i have seen, it fitted the genre well and yes it had pirates which made it unique (ish) I did find it a little predictable but what the hey! :o
Plot/Story - 10 - Very very very well written story! :) The pirates could have been one on its own! :o
Dialogue - 6 - This unfortunatley let you down ... I just couldn't get my head around who was speaking half the time ... and the woman ... well that was just plain wrong! lol! you can get VO actors from the forums if you ask around! :) There should be loads willing to help!
Editing - 7 - The editing was great, however i think there was slight overuse of some of the scenes! could have been slightly different (like when he's looking, he goes into the forest?!)
"wow factor" - 8 - I really liked this, it was a nice and happy movie!

Overall - 40 - 4* - Well this was as i say a great movie well done!

That was a really nice movie. Was unpredicatable, captivating and left me with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Im going to give my darling a call now.

Such a fun adventure sort of story. I don't think I've seen anything like it on here. And a sweet twist. I really enjoyed it.

Great work in StarMaker. I really liked the custom music. An interesting story that went just a little long for me. The girl voiceover was just wrong :) A few of the scenes could have been edited shorter (i.e the dog).

A good and different romance movie, great premise but had its flaws in the execution.
First surely you must know a female of some sort for the VO? Your VO for the guy was ok, but the girl...well that was just weird! The editing could have been a lot better, especially in the fight scenes which were just stock and therefore lacked any drama or surprise. The whole section about searching for the treasure could have been slashed down to a minimum, it really slowed the pace and made the movie drag.
Dialogue could have fizzed a little more, especially between the two Romantic Leads, they only really started to show a spark at the end.
Dont let all this criticism get you down, it was a good movie but could have been better. I didnt see the end coming till late on and the scenes from the book made me smile...I especially liked the "Basterrd's part :)
Good work, hopefully better to come.
3.6
By the way...did I see a Pirate in there at one point?

Very nice effort. Shows originality and lots of thought. Just a bit predictable though...and too much Sparky. Otherwise, I liked it.

It was a nice story, and to combine the (usually axe murder) hut with the library and the beach to a holiday paradise was original.
But doing the female VO yourself irritated the mood. The inserted pirate story was decent, especially the logic flow, the dialogue and the french accent. Yarr!
The surface story, on the other hand, was very harmless and sweet, okay... but slightly pale. How many times did John say "Good boy"?
The conversation between him and her could have had a trace of more... pep/fire/fun/sparks.
But it had a heart-warming end.

Great movie! The first that really kept me watching. Original and fun story and really terrific editing. The scenes with the dog were especially smooth and "realistic" looking. The only thing that I would have liked is slower subtitles. They were a wee bit too fast.

BTW, you might enjoy, "Love at Second Sight". It was my first movie. I'm not looking for a review, I just thought you might like it.

This movie was great with the vo. and the plot. I also liked the idea of switchng to the book then back as the woman read. Far better than my movie.

PS.
Thanks for the review on my movie..."The West that's Wild." I have a second one being made right now.
