A guy goes round to everyone he's done wrong to, reminds them of what he did, and apologises. In some parts, he wants to be slapped, or punched back so that he clears his conscious. I really really like this short and the funny scenarios the guys finds himself in, but not sure as to what/how he's character learn or grow from the experience?
I really enjoyed this film - Time travel, not so sure they nailed that but I got they were going for a rebirth angle? Think My name is Earl.
This was shot well, had some great lines and loved the use of the toy and how it gets broken, my second favourite in this heat and in fact out of heat 1 & 2. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is I just didn't feel the time travel.
Thought the acting was great, the gags brilliant and had very good production values. Could be a contender for the AK finals at this stage.
Well done, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Loved this movie, freakin funny. The acting was superb. Loved the Mitre 10 Salesman. Badaboom Badabing delivered as always. Potential Auckland finalist.
A rather clever little entry, taking on the central idea for the TV series "My Name Is Earl" about the lead charcater apologising to everyone he's offended and /or maligned in the past. It works well, by using a variety of film styles, and there are parts of the story where the apology seems to get the lead character into mor etrouble than the original offense. Entertaining, though the audience seems to be laughing AT the protagonist rather than with.
I LOVED this movie, heartwarming concept and much better than its cousin "the invention of lying". In it, a man simply travels around apologising to everyone he owes an apology to, and that's a lot of people. The results were so varied from scene to scene that its repetitive nature was hardly noticeable. I'd hoped all along that each mini-story would eventually link together and make for a larger one, but unfortunately that never happened. In fact, in later moments our character seemed to just be out to humiliate himself, and the audience's ability to relate to him really suffered. One of my personal fav's from the heat nonetheless, and a film that was great with its poor production values but would stink if done by Hollywood. Deserves a lot of Youtube hits.
This short had a surprising number of funny entertaining lines it kept a good pace and had great audience response. Was that a wooky? One critique would have liked to see a better finish.From this heat I rate this short top equal.
The spokesman from Badaboom Badabing introduced 'Sorry Man' apologetically, which is (sadly) not unusual in the v48, but it turned out to be quite appropriate. This Road Movie follows a guy who is determined to apologise to everyone he's lied to in his life, including old school friends, ex-girlfriends, store assistants, and -- my personal favourite -- the customer service helpdesk at the IRD.
I really enjoyed this film, as did many of our team, but I think it labours -- probably unfairly -- under a similarity of premise with the 'My Name Is Earl' TV show, exacerbated by a ticking-stuff-off-a-list plot device. Also, in writing this review, I realised I had essentially summed up the short in one line; 'Sorry Man' is really more of a collection of gags than it is a story.
But what gags they are! Look for the apology in the hardware store, which is a masterpiece of comic timing; we were green with envy.
