Very good cinematography and a good story. Can't believe you can do all that in under two minutes. You have a knack for this.

Aha! Just as I've always suspected...Santa was a grumpy Psycho!
I mean, I know he had a difficult job, but don't we all?

Very funny little movie:-)

I didn't like it too much.

The idea was good, but the scenes were not strung together nicely.

Originality - 8/10
Like I said earlier, great idea!

Subs/VOs - 5/10
The voiceover was good, but the lines were boring and meaningless.

Editing - 5/10
The scenes were not strung together correctly.

Stunts/Effects - 8/10
Even though they were just thrown into the movie, they were pretty good.

Overall - 32/50

How clever was it?:4/10:Pretty basic at most, there are millions of these flying around so not really unique either, however salvage by ther fact that i like the idea as long as it was well excuted.

What kind of squeak does it make?: 3/10: Only one song throughout which was an original one (try freeplaymusic.com) and the VOs weren't spectacular, try and put on a different voice for different people or get someone else to do it.

How well groomed was it?: 3/10: none of it was edited from what i could tell and some of scenes were a bit random, like how did santa get onto the roof from the car and inconsistent things like that.

The Acorn factor: 5/10: I like these type of santa movies so marks there, only problem there are so many about so there not really jump out of your seat amazing, it was funny in places tho and i would like to see you do more comedys

Overall 15/40: 2** High two stars, a good if unoriginal idea marred by the fact of inexperience and unoriginalty, try and do something original spend more than a weekend on it, publicise it well and you could be making very good movies indeed! I see you have a talent for this so keep at it!

average movie and the VO just seemed to be describing what was going on.

It was ok, the voices were slightly low, but the editing was good.
It was a good idea, but you could of had a build up, and a few more jokes.
Good effort though.

You didn't make me give you my willing suspension of disbelief. alas, the santa didn't seem real, the things santa did didn't seem real, and even the ending didn't seem real. i couldn't believe any of it.

I guess that's how Santa sounds off job.
Pretty good. It did feel a little rushed though.

Adam262's Lounge Review:

Originality: Nothing original here. Seen many people attempt comical santa movies.

Dialogue: The Vo's were there but didnt match well with the movie and the female cop had the same voice as Santa.

Editing: Or lack there of. Not a whole lot was edited in this movie from what I could tell.

Music: Only used one song. Fit ok.

Originality: 5/10
Dialogue: 6/10
Editing: 4/10
Music: 6/10
Wow Factor: 5/10

Total: 26/50 [3 STARS] Nothing new in this movie. We've all seen these Santa spoofs before with comical humor that didnt work. This felt less like a movie and more like a composite of scenes. He goes from being pulled over and one second later hes on a roof chopping down a door. then tossing a grenade into an elevator. In the future, try using more editing, various music, various VO's, and a fresh thoughtful story.

~~~ AAA RATING ~~~

Plot - 3
Editing - 5
VOs - 4
Originality - 3
Length/Quality Ratio - 3

I'm really disappointed. The plot was very minor, and comic mischief just doesn't work in The Movies. Editing was minimal, but it was pretty good. Voice-overs-- just didn't match the setting. Several people have made a goofy santa movie, but only a few have gotten away with it. Not an original idea, and it was just too rushed.

Overall - 18/25 *** stars

This is a disappointing production that is only for those who laugh extremely easily. Some people enjoy movies like these, but I'm not one of them.

A fairly good story, but it just wasn't funny enough for a comedy. I didn't laugh very much at all.

A good comedy you have made here with a interesting idea of letting santa "lose control" as his on vacation. I thought where he got pulled over was quite funny but other then that, I felt it could of been alot more funnier. The VO was good but try a software called Audicity, does wonders with your voice and its free! Overall, this comedy had potential but failed in the last part (with the grenade and the can of pop), hopefully with better selection of scenes, it could of been quite funny but keep it up!

Santa with style, had an interesting story and nicely executed. The voice overs could have used a bit more depth to be portrayed as santa. But you just got a young voice. However the story was pretty funny. Just shows what happens when your vacation gets interrupted. It was a good film, just lacked a bit of structure. Editing probably put more emphasis in also. Although It was a good little skit, just the change of scenes could have been better exectued. But the characteristics were very funny, some nice simple humor of Santa not having it his way.
Overall, another amusing Santa spoof done well, with only a couple faults that could do some work, but in general your skills are promising in film making. Good effort!

A short little film with an "evil santa" plot
The editing was ok, VO's were a little muffled but still understandable enough.
A fair attempt and worth a watch if you've got couple of mins to kill.

3/5 for sound
3/5 for editing
4/5 for entertainment
3/5 for Plot
3/5 for novelty Value (If your Idea was Original)
Should You Watch It No

Not bad as a first attempt for VO's but next time change Them with Audacity. But Otherwise Pointless but fun.

It was a good idea for a comedy but, to be honest, it fell a little short with the comedy department and gave the feeling that he was just being pulled through the scenes without alot of thought.

plot 3/5 really there wasn't much of a plot unfortunatly. i don't understand why santa went crazy. and robots ?

voice overs 3/5 lots of pops, but from what i understand, this was your first attempt at VO, so understandable. Download Audigy. it will help you ALOT!

Editing 4/5 Clever use of some scenes, and nice work on tryin to incoporate custom backgrounds into some of it.

entertainment 3/5 The idea was sound, however it was way too short and made no sence.... Some plot development could have been used here.

I'm sorry mate, 13/20. 3 stars. It feels like you threw this together in about 30 minutes just to test your Voiceover skills. I hope that your next movie will be a little longer and more detailed.

Was a fun movie though, but i can't give it more than three. i hope you understand.

Well, what to say... I don't like giving bad reviews, but I have to be honest, that was not very good. There was no real story. Why was Santa so angry? Where was the vacation? Who the hell poisoned a sealed can in a vending machine and knew that Santa was going to use it?! A little more thought could have made a decent movie. If I had done this, I would have had Santa starting on his vacation and some event or events would cause him to get mad. Then you can get him going postal. I know virtual credits are scarce out there but this is one film that isn't gonna make the top 10. Sorry to be harsh, but I did say I would be honest in my reviews. By the way the voiceover was ok, I don't normally mark films down for lack of or even a bad voiceover.

This movie was not that good....I would have givin it a 2 star but now that you got a mic.....3 star....just because the sant suit has been used over and over and over and over.and i didnt laugh.

that was crazy and random, which can be a good thing but in this case I think it hurt it a little bit, if there was a bit more emphasis on the plot to explain why he went on a rampage it would be that much funnier.

VOs were done really well, keep it up
