Movie Reviews

Not a docu, not a mocku. an excuse to sell a director's uni
T. BRIGHAM | Athens, GA United States | 01/18/2006

"I rented this because of Mora having directing Whitley Strieber's Communion film, and expected a UFO documentary, which this 'film' has been advertised as. What I got instead was a waste of a chunk of my life (even having watched bits of this thing in fast-forward). Mora presents his home videos of his family and friends as they occassionaly joke about uFOS. stock footage abounds, with cheesy music playing in the background as mora cracks what I can only guess are supposed to be humorous jokes. A few minutes total time are spent with Mora interviewing some unknown ufo 'experts' but any ufo documentary on the markt contains more of both information and entertainment. I have no idea why this was even released or what it was supposed to be, other than a cash scam on the film viewing public. And by the way, don't misunderstand: I am also enjoy ufo humor and mock-umentaries as well as real ones, but this is neither. It's not funny or interesting, it's not as advertised, and there seems to be no real point beyond Mora having a chance to exploit his collection of home movies. Mora et al, you should be ashamed. PS- oh, and the extras on the disc contain footage of Moras interview subjects (alleged abductees) auditioning for their roles. Mora couldnt even be troubled to have real alleged abductees tell their stories, instead we get actors portraying them (though we aren't told so and why is still a question)"
Utter trash, a worthless waste of time

"An extremely juvenile mockumentary advertised as much more. Nothing of any quality or professional effort to view here. Maybe it cold be used by our present White House for learning purposes to further their current Fox News/two-bit propaganda machine."

Is There a Way to Give Zero Stars?

"There is really no way to describe how bad this movie is. Although the filmmaker has previous credits to his name and (contrary to the ending of this film, where he is said to be missing) subsequent credits, this thing looks like a bad high school documentary. If you've ever wanted to make a movie and thought you didn't have what it takes, this movie will give you hope. The production values are awful, even for a low budget documentary, but then again, you can't tell if it's a documentary since the bonus footage includes people screen testing for their parts. Although ostensibly about alien abduction, there is little in the way of facts beyond blatant speculation to be found here. My favorite scene is where they show a picture of Hitler on the telephone and they tell us that he is talking to aliens. Come on! You could say the same thing about a picture of anyone talking on the phone! Save yourself an hour and a half and avoid this movie. Maybe this is meant to be a mockumentary, but it's just not funny or remotely interesting."
