Too Much Spare Time

Reviews

Smiling

This is the one and only 48Hrs film that should be shown to any butchers who were after an explanation as to why they suddenly had all these random people coming in to buy cow(?) hearts during that weekend. Sure, they'd only be even more confused, but when it comes to fun confusion, this nigh-inscrutable short overdelivers.

HUMAN

I like how the horror story was played straight, while the whole time the inversion of the "living doll" trope gave it a comedic edge. Very clever and unsettling, especially with that well-composed eerie music.

The Ad

An impressive entry, all the more impressive for its large-ish cast to be in one place at the same time, contributing to an overall atmosphere of busy-ness without being overly chaotic. The actors were all bringing their A-game too, vital to a film that centres around one character who's bad at acting. And then the best at acting! It takes a fair bit of talent to sell both extremes so well. The payoff with the final performance of the ad (which I was not expecting to be included but in hindsight of course it had to be) was brilliant, and got a big reaction from the audience at Little Andromeda. Even though it took me a while to get onboard with the story near the beginning, it became one of those films where you're having too much fun to think about analysing it technically, so I've got no more criticisms to add here.

Science Fact or Science Fiction

Nicely written & Lego'd. Entertaining AND informative!

2020: A Couch Odyssey

I don't know if we're allowed to use Disney characters in our movies but either way, thank you for making this highly entertaining gem. Great choices for the various types of TV shows they ended up in.

Time & Lasers

Great character designs! Nicely drawn and smoothly animated, too.

For Generations

Nicely done. It's so easy for this type of "generational comedy" to veer into cheap stereotypes but this maintained the amusing and relatable characters, with the hilarious dialogue and all three characters pulling their weight throughout the scene. Proof that sci-fi can be goofy and "out there" but still keep the audience onboard the whole time!

Lizard Wizards

I like the use of the genre... and of the pet lizards! Great acting, props, and sound make this a well-polished film, worthy of its TV screening.

Tonight On Extreme Quickfire Trivia

A fun and well-chosen concept for the given genre, excellent theme song, and just the right blend of humour and darkness. A solid entry!

The Visible Man

This is my absolute fave. The Plan 9 Criswell/Vincent Price guy at the start, the menacing gangsters brandishing their weapons, the comment about drinking pee... There was no part of this movie that wasn't a riot - it's perfect. I'm still randomly remembering bits of it today and chuckling like an idiot.

The Taste of Friendship

Blending creepy sci-fi absurdity with a touching story of friendship, managing to convey a sense of loneliness that one might call "Peak Lockdown" without even referencing the Lockdown, and ending in a way that's so dark but so hilarious - this paradoxical film totally deserves its title as the most "Incredibly Strange" of the 48Hours.

Houses & Humans

A deceptively simple concept, but it's clear you weren't resting on that. So many great gags and well-chosen characters all round. So far this is my favourite film of the Urban Fantasy bunch. A natural 20 out of 20 for you!
