Simul-Screening 5: Review

Paul

5 /9

I’d give it a higher score if this was a part one of two. It was building to something, but the payoff was only thirty seconds long. The setting and dialogue were fine, some of it was kind of funny.

3 /9

I dig the way they filmed it, especially the dialogue between Fay and Everett. But there was a lot of buildup for not much at the end. Not enough sci-fi for me. It seems wasted to know the characters that much just for them to disappear.

4 /9

If you want part two, tune into Fire in the Sky. So much character building, just to have AH! they’re here! Okay, movie’s over. It was a disappointing ending.

7 /9

I’m not entirely certain I see vast character development. There’s only about fifteen minutes of them just talking, then the plot starts going. I was impressed and entertained throughout. I like the way they played the two characters off each other, with their implied attraction as they figure out what this mystery is. I like that they didn’t completely spell it out: was it aliens, the government, or what? It’s left to your imagination.

6 /9

The handful of lengthy one-shot scenes at the beginning was great. They were showing off, and I think they earned it. The framework of the movie as the episode of a quasi-Twilight Zone anthology series was unnecessary; it made me take the plot a little less seriously. The ending felt abrupt, like they didn’t quite know what to do, so they just had the characters stumble into the mystery’s revelation by sheer chance.
