|04.20.06||Alamo South Lamar|| AICN put on a free screening of this that didn't sell out. I guess that should have told me something. My friends walking out around 20 minutes into it should have told me more. I stayed though... a glutton for punishment perhaps? Lazy? Indecisive? Probably all of the above.|
The movie is like the old cliffhanger serials used to be, very much in the vein of Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and Sky Captain. I bring up Sky Captain because it's basically an exact copy of this movie except for much better, and I'm even one of the few that liked Sky Captain.
Monarch of the Moon has six episodes and lasted for almost two hours. It was shot on an earlier version of the camera I just bought. Note to self: talk to whoever I can about using a HD camera for my movie. I shouldn't crap on this too much though, they only had something like 80 grand to make it with... but still. Let's just say I won't be seeing it again.
