I would have found a way to dispense with the long-winded and somewhat wanky voice-over. As another reviewer has stated, it caused the watcher to think there was a 'moral' of some sort, which wasn't actually forthcoming. Having said that, this was a pretty good film, with consistent acting throughout. I liked the interpretation of the 'body switch' genre - think this team did very well with it. I kind of wanted to see the POV change to that of each character in turn as George started to see the day from their perspective. I really liked the device of focusing on each of the objects that prompted a memory of each part of the day. That was very well done. The moment between George and the girl at the end was very genuine - beautifully awkward and a bit stilted, just like real life.

Heart of Wire

I thought the musical aspect was lacking, with one quite average song being the only real nod to the 'musical' genre. Nice idea but I kept wondering whether it was almost better suited to the 'one-room' genre - two soldiers in a bunker before heading off 'over the top'. The farm gate in the background somewhat detracted from the 'battlefield' they were trying to establish. Some great acting from the blokes, though - particularly Bobby.

Beard I be without you

A simple quest movie, but oh - they did well with what I think is a difficult genre... My only niggle would be the old 'get the required 48 hour elements out of the way in the first 30 seconds'. I feel like more effort should go into incorporating the elements and this film had the weakest use of them in the heat. Having said that, when the film cracked into it, the little beard wandering off and having a play on the playground equipment just made me laugh so hard. The stop-motion would have taken quite some doing and I thought this team did a beautiful job. I also enjoyed how the bundle of hair got smaller as it moulted all over town. I didn't think the acting was all that great, but it was secondary to the beard, which was the star of this film. I disagree with one of the other reviewers, I think the reunion with the beard at the end was made that much more fantastic by the way the cut hair was just disgustingly stuck to his face. Gorgeous!

Bloody Mary

Pretty enjoyable - some very funny moments. Didn't hang together too well for me, but it certainly embodies the spirit of the competition. One of those films that starts out and you go.. wtf? And then as it goes on, you still don't know what's happening but you don't care anymore. I concur with everyone who commented on the 'paramedic'd' line. Comedy gold.

Super Self Me

I loved this film. Thought there was some fantastic acting from both of the main guys - particularly 'Captain Confidence' himself. Pushed some boundaries in terms of taste (ie abuse of a wheelchair-bound former teacher) but it worked for me, overall. The moment Captain Confidence first found his stride and threw sugar in the face of his former tormentor stands out as the highlight of this heat, in my view!
