    I think that music they use in the first scene is stolen from last year's Doctor Who finale, but I haven't watched that in awhile, so I could be wrong. Otherwise, I thought this trailer was a bit dull.

    Yup, the music is the theme for Torchwood. I wonder if they have permission...

    Waaaaaooowwww.... that looks pretty crappy. :) 

    I mean, seriously... it's like a lower budget sequel to Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future. Or perhaps better described as Terminator's future, but all the machines "transmorph".

    To be fair, I know this is an uber-cheap indie film, and I sort of have to applaud them for doing something so obviously ambitious on such a small scale. I used to really enjoy B-movies... but this one doesn't quite look like it's gonna deliver the fun.

    The music from the "action" portion of the trailer is Ministry's Just One Fix. Wonder if they have permission for that too?

    Wow, I thought that thing was a joke when you guys posted it a while back. Looks bad, but in a fun, watch it drunk with your friends sort of way.

    I don't know if I would describe it as "ambitious"..... more like opportunistic. If this were just a one-off dystopian robot movie that some indie film director had been working on for years, I would applaud him and pity him the bad luck that he is going up against a much bigger-budget Hollywood production.

    But this studio subsists on making quickie copies of blockbuster movies in an attempt to cash in on overflow audience.... they've done it for countless other films. Not that they don't put effort into them, but they're not exactly a beacon of indie creativity.

    Ah well, imitation is the sincerest for of flattery, I suppose. :)

    I like that the name of the file is "Online_trailer_DO_NOT_ERASE." For some reason, that's funny.

    Dammit, now I have no content for my post.

    I like that we have this little glimpse into the web design process here.

    For a movie being made with practically no budget, people really shouldn't be expecting Hollywod level FX. For a budget film, this looks like a blast, especially with a few beers, a pizza and some buddies over.

    Oh man that looks crazy. :D  They did a 'cash-in' clone of War of the Worlds a couple of years ago that looked slightly less 'low-budget'. Only just, mind.
