It takes a strong love to keep a couple together for a long period of time. For Astrid Westlake and Alistor Krow, it has been since high school. Now they plan a VEGAS trip to base their celebration on suriviving a 2 year relationship.

But, there lies someone with a different plan. A stranger who seeks to rearrange the destiny of their relationship. Someone who seems a product of their past. Will it haunt them? Or will they escape?

oh, wow. that was simply amazing like two stories wrapped up in one. You did an excellant job on this. I see your Movie Career here at TMO going far. The patience it takes to make a movie such as this makes it worth watching alone. The awesome job you did makes it even better.

Come by my studio and watch the Bunny Show if you get time.

The first thing I notice is the introduction dialogue which is trying to set an atmosphere but fails by making little sense. �??Ungrateful past?�?? I�??m all for using personification but some of these choices could have been better. �??We�??re not married yet but still intact after some hard times.�?? Intact? It sounded like you wanted to impress the audience with a varied dialogue of clever word-play, but just shoved anything in there you thought was remotely interesting until it didn�??t make a lick of sense. The music was good though; it really suited of what I thought was the theme and sounded like it was leading us somewhere. Later however I realised and asked myself, are all these tunes even legal to use, what about copyright laws?

The characters dialogue becomes very basic and immature and at some points I couldn�??t understand the sentence. This combined with the fast moving subtitles on certain points, was starting to annoy me. After the sex car scene I suddenly realised I want these characters to die. I don�??t care about them anymore, not that I ever did of course. Imagine my delight when the guy gets blown to hell in the next scene (or so we thought), added with the screams of �??ALISTOR!�??, �??OH MY GOD!�?? I was practically laughing. The death wasn�??t displayed in any decent emotional way; I felt it had more cheese than Wallace and Grommit.

I sighed in dismay as I realised I was barely 1/5 through this movie. From here the scenes seemed to jump all over the place giving little explanation as to what was going on, the dialogue continued exactly like the introduction making no sense at all. If you can�??t get articulate words to form something meaningful then why use them?

I think I�??ll just stop there frankly, I could go on for pages and pages describing why I don�??t like this movie but every word I write drains valuable energy. This movie has done enough damage to me today.

Well Done Chino,
I really enjoyed the depth you brought to each character and to the story as a whole. Never glorifying one aspect over the other. Giving each character emotional depth to drive the story. A really well developed plotline made this enjoyable to watch.
Loved it.

The biting dialogue, intense action, and ensnaring drama don't let up for a minute as this gritty tale of violence, payback, and devotion sends the senses reeling and the emotions flaring. Laid out with a mine field of great oneliners and shocking instances, this taboo thriller is destined for the stars . . . Ororoborus!

a very original film, you had some nice editing in there, the story was something else,but i only have one complaint and that is that in some of the scene the subs were a bit to fast to read and the names were pretty close to so that made it more difficult, but overall a great film

Graphical content for sure, but excellent use of it!

For your first movie, this is amazing! The editing is superb, the story outstanding... its 99.9% perfect the only .1% being VOs. Its not just a movie, its a trip!

Good luck on following up to this, dude. And I certainly hope more than just 8 people comment this; 20 mins. shouldn't distract them from the movie, some of the best 20 mins. I spent on TMO.

First of all I forgot I watching something made with The Movies. How you managed this with the limitations of the game is inspiring. The story drew me in. I was in a trance...reading the words. I didn't need or even want voice overs. All I can say is WOW. Very AWESOME.

Were you sent by Hollywood to make TMO studios feel inadequate?

this, as a first movie, is better than a lot of people's BEST movies. the dialogue was great, and the story was gripping. Not what i was expecting from the title at all!

you've done an awesome job, film on

very engrossing. the plot was gripping, the dialogue was wellthey played well as a couple. and the choice of scenes ad shooting was suberb. good job
