Wow, this was a very entertaining, funny and even philosophical movie.
(By the way, I hope you like my romance flick)

I liked the constant heart-beat. Gave it some anxiety. Very simple but creative story which got my interest. Had some interesting values. Shots had some good structure, and yeah the music at the end was weird but added to the theme effectively. Nice special effects of the earth destruction. A film with some strong sensitivity of life, and unique content. Also the editing was at a high standard which was added to a fine performance.
Overall a comprehensive movie with some significant virtues and a well-structured production.

That was... interesting.
I liked the custom music, it was creative, and it came with a bit of a message. Weird, but good.

Great movie. Loved it. Unfortunately I am shattered so can't write as much as I would have liked, so sorry for that.

an excellent movie. It shows us how much stupidity goes into our minds and how we can't even enjoy life when we need to enjoy it most. On the other hand it is quite depressing but go figure, life on this planet will probably end like that anyway. Good one:)

I thought this movie was great. This is a question should actually ask themselves. Great stuff.

*MoMc Review*

4.3 Stars

A lot of interesting ideas and SFX. I just felt that something was missing that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Bet very enjoyable, none the less.

I'm guessing English isn't your first language, and that kind of detracted from it as a couple of sentences were a little unintelligible. However, I really liked your original ideas and the effect at the end was very unique. But as much as I wanted to give a unique and intriguing piece like this 5 stars, it just didn't have the polish and punch to get that extra star.

Hoo's Who Review : Different. Not bad. It's an Interesting story. I thought the effects we're very good. It was well crafted and yes, Weird.

4.4/5.0

I appreciate your interesting idea and the efforts you put into the backdrops. Well�?�I wondered why 53 seconds. Any particular reason? I wondered what if you made that time a little bit longer and explored more options a little bit deeper. And what if we got to know a little bit more about those characters�?� (I know it is easier to be said than done.) Some lines in the movie worked for me (e.g., �??I have 53 seconds to love you,�?? but not with that particular screen) and some lines did not (e.g., �??I have 20 seconds to give you massage.�??). The original music was interesting and fit the movie quite well. The backdrops were fun. A nice effort!

A very good and thought-provoking movie you have created here. I liked how you told the story through excellent editing and even the music was brillantly chosen as it gave the right mood. Top marks for the final act when Earth finally becomes dust into space. Overall, an excellent movie to watch

-Off topic: As a MoMc head-reviewer of horror, I moved your movie from Horror to the Drama thread as I believe it will get better reviews if it was looked at on a drama perspective then horror (and its also gives that arthouse feel to it) Hope you don't mind :) But excellent stuff!

53 secnods to live...and yet its 4 min+ :D

the heart beat effect was great, however with the music the way it was the heartbeat took away, if u do that kind of tension building it needs to be supported by music

some grammer mistakes in subtitles

the film doesn't really capture you, the heartbeat is its shiny momeny. except its beaten down by overdrowning music...

good original idea

things to improve:
VO
Music
a great way to grip an audience of the bat

Simplistic, yet very expansive. The story is well thought out and told in small bits of other peoples lives. The subtitles and music move the movie along nicely and keep the viewer enthralled with a host of varying emotions.

Some minor editing issues that could be cleaned up a little. You aimed high, and hit your mark. Well done and bravo!

Excellent movie with a great ambient and a unique story.
Very original and deep... yet I still keep wondering... why 53?

Posted on April 3, 2006
- MAGIC_SCHOOL_BUS

This asks a very weird question. "what would you do if you 53 seconds to live?" just 53 seconds... it's a silly and diverse concept. I'm glad that it has been explored. Unique movie, and even better executed.

4/5 for sound
5/5 for editing
4/5 for entertainment
5/5 for Plot
5/5 for novelty Value (If your Idea was Original)
Should You Watch It Yes

A very Original movie Editing was Great Sound was good original music but there was a silent part in the middle and since there were no VO's (which probably makes the movie even better)it was just became silent. Otherwise a Very good Movie.

Thought provoking and nicely done,.. My 53 secs?: I think I would send a multiple text message to all my mates, whilst smoking a cigerette and drinking a beer.. However if you've got about 12 minutes to spare you could do worse and go and rate The Thing about Geoff (my first movie).

Posted on March 27, 2006
- akinis

kinda confusing and choppy, although i'm with mindlessgr, that one minute man joke was classic.
really deep movie though, makes you wonder what you'd do if you were told you had one min left to live.
i'd probably still be on these stupid messageboards.

Some good custom backdrops. Something new which is a good thing, although the subtitles weren't to good, they all had the - infront of them and you couldnt tell weather it was the stroy being told or someone talking. Overall it was good i supose.

Please take time to review my movie/s. Cheers

Overall it was a good movie. Some cool custom backdrops and good editing. Sometimes it was really confusing though and the subtitles didnt make sense a few times.

Othern than that is a good movie.

Cool. A great premise for a movie and well implemented. Definately original and the wierdness factor added to the film in my opinion.

- Trashman

I'm not sure how to put into words exactly how I feel about this.
Heres a few;
Weird,strange,funny,odd,interesting,confusing,thought-provoking...
It was also creative and disjointedly original.
Were you on something when you made this?...Because I don't want any(my mind is already warped enough naturally)...(and hopefully yours is too)hahahahahahahahahaha....

I gess it was good but Ill tell you something you can do for your backdrops....shortin them up so the scean moves faster and dosent look like a picture.but it was an ok movie but it would be better with VOs.

Well... I cans ee why people would like this... and I can tell a lot of effort was put into it... But I was bored, so I guess I'll give it 3 stars for effort and trying something different.

I'll admit i vh never seen a movie quite like this. The sound effects used (the heart beat) was quite chilling i suppose but also gave this movie an extra oomph. The message used was also really effective, it ook me a while to actually totally feel the impact of the film so i left this five mins so i could think about the film before reviewing it. I hv come to conclusion that u r obviously a very intelligent person to hv used The Movies Online to make a movie that genuinely can make a person think! Well done!

Very good work, nicely paced and good editing. The script was a little oddly phrased in parts, not sure if English is your first language or not, and the bit with the fighting had no sound, deliberate?
Anyway you made it well, it would have been so easy to drag it out and include unecessary scenes but you kept to the story well. Liked the lil joke with the couple making love, very subtle :)
Liked the nihilistic attitude at the end too.
More polish on the script would have upped this to a five for me.
4.4

It would've been excellent if the movie actually ran for 53 sec's!
Not that it was boring... just would've been a cool thing..
Music was good...

A couple of small editing errors, other than that the story flowed. I was captivated when the original music came in. The tension bubbled up slowly. I was surprised when the movie was longer than 53 seconds!

Well this was deffenitly one of a kind. If I had 53 seconds, I would spend it talking to someone that i have not talked to for a long time. Of course that would only be if i knew that i only had 53 seconds left. If not it would be the same old whatever ya know. I think some good vo's would have made this a hundred times better but i know that not everyone has a mic. I sure dont. All i can say is very creative and well thought out. Keep up the good work

I thought it was a very clever idea, it is hard to come up with original story lines so well done! I really liked the SFX of the earth being destroyed too.

Posted on March 9, 2006

Here's FoDooG with a Horsish Review.

Story 10/10: I'm getting into high gear here, because the idea and execution were very good. And, hell, why 53 seconds? Why not 54? Those little things take the story to some higher stage, 60 seconds would have felt like: "Nah..."

Editing 8/10: Ah, here I wave a little bit... There were some scenes, I wished you would have deleted things, or added something, but I can't get my thumb on it... But I think there would have been ways making the final sequence (before earth's end) more compelling. Good work on the backdrops!

Sound 10/10: Again, we kick in high gear... this silence before this disturbing "song" (yourself?) was brilliant and the "song" most disturbing. Very good.

A very good movie, unique in it's kind. There are not many philosophical movies here on TMO and this one nails the spot. Thank god, not every movie has silly horses in it... 28/30

- FLIPMANBURN

What a great film! The story was original, the dialog well written, and editing was really good. I loved the ending scenes! The score was also very well done and the sound of the heartbeat really helped sell the emotion of this short flick. Overall, this is an excellent film and a must see for anyone! One of the best movies I've seen so far...excellent job, man! - 5 stars way up!

Surprising and chilly.
The beginning with the heart beats was giving me chill through the spin.
An original and well done movie as always.
Just small thing missing to make it being a very special movie , a small spice, i cant say what.
But anyway, one original creation, that give us more than 53 sec to think.

I liked this very much. The idea of this movie was a depressing concept. I liked the last line especially about "nothing much to...", which made the whole movie feel morbid and gloomy. The music was also strange and wonderful, it went well the end of the world sequence. This film was philosphical, morbid, and thought-provoking!
