    The MegaMan fan-made movie came out today:
    Mega Man | ScrewAttack - Get Equipped for Mega Man!
    It's a stream, but I used the Firefox DownloadHelper add-on to save the .mp4 and watch it on my 360. Without spoiling anything, I thought it was actually a decent movie. The special effects were cheesy, but that's par for the course for a fan-movie. I thought it was entertaining enough that I don't regret watching it. Not sure I'd buy it, but I think it's worth the current price (IE, free).

    Dr Wily was by far the best character, by the way. So ridiculously evil.

    I completely forgot about this one. Think I might take a gander at it when I have a free bit

    I really do commend people who do this kind of thing, but I couldn't get beyond the first 5 minutes. :(

    It has kind of a slow start, I'll admit.

    Maybe I'll approach it later. I doubt it though.

    I really think these things are better as very short films or mock trailers.
    That way you can get three minutes that give you a sense of the creator's vision without 90 minutes or so of the glaring fact that they had almost no resources.

    I sat through the whole thing, and it was actually very good! I was satisfied with what I watched by the end of it. Thumbs up from me!

    I don't think it was perfect by any means. The beginning was a bit slow. Roll was kind of annoying. And the sound effects / CGI were a bit off at times (but it's a fan movie, so I can forgive a lot). But all in all, I thought it was worth watching. Plus it's, you know, free. Hard to complain as long as you get some enjoyment out of it.

    Obviously a labor of love. But otherwise it's fairly pedestrian and unspectacular, much like the way over-hyped (and mostly terrible) 3 minute Street Fighter fanfilm.

    I finished and loved it. It was a great effort on such a tiny budget, and I had quite a lot of fun on it.

    Wait, what? I remember seeing a trailer for this way back or something...in my opinion they should have kept it at that...
