Movie Reviews

Indie comedy that doesn't dissapoint.

"I had been waiting to see London Betty for quite some time because of the director, Thomas Edward Seymour's previous work. While a fan of his supernatural/comic influenced "Land of College Prophets", I was much more impressed with his first film, "Everything Moves Alone". I thought the premise for "London Betty" sounded much more like his earlier work and I was anxious to see if he delivered another great independent comedy - even if his first film did have many dramatic themes, it still made me laugh on numerous occasions.

"London Betty" did not disappoint. As a full length feature, it keeps your interest from start to finish. The witty dialogue and over the top antics kept me laughing throughout the film. While some of the acting is not what you would consider "Oscar worthy", it did contribute to some of the laughs that were experienced throughout the film. The title character, Betty, played by who I found out from the director commentary is Seymour's long time girlfriend, portrays an outstanding lead character & is genuinely likeable in this role. It may have something to do with the fancy British accent. While I was not aware of any of her previous work, apparently she is a theatre actress including some well know Broadway performances.

The fast paced shots & stellar screenplay make for an enjoyable film experience. I look forward to seeing more work by Thomas Edward Seymour down the road. I think his contributions to independent film making, including the films mentioned previously, have proven his ability to create entertaining features, and I hope it gives him further opportunity to prove himself in the world of cinema. Congratulations on a job well done."
An Impressive Oddball Indie

""London Betty" is really something. I mean, this is obviously one of those labor-of-love, shot-from-the-hip, I-don't-have-any-money-but-I'm-making-a-movie-anyway films (most of which are, let's face it, completely unwatchable); having acknowledged that, I was really impressed. I even laughed out loud a couple of times. I mean, you're just making a movie with a bunch of your friends and whatever money you can scrape together, and you manage to make an original, entertaining, screwball comedy that looks pretty good, really, and has two recognizable names in it (admittedly as little bit parts)? Wow. That is hard to pull off -- it's hard to make any feature-length film that doesn't bore an audience to tears within the first 15 minutes, much less make it all work, all the way through.
Don't get me wrong - "Avatar" this is not. The sound is a little all over the place, and the inside stuff looks pretty uneven (a lot of the movie takes place outside, which was smart). But for an independent film it is downright impressive. Worth checking out, for sure.
