Short Film Fest #1

Today I want to do something a little different. Today I want to talk about some short films that I really like.

Me and the Big Guy

What happens when Big Brother takes over and some idiot loves the idea? That’s sort of the question posed by this short movie. Citizen 43275-B talks to his view screen constantly, babbling the most inane garbage until Big Brother finally has enough and starts talking back. That’s not even the best part, the best part is the last few seconds of the film. I won’t spoil it, but the movie gets better as it goes along until the final punch line.

The Second Comeback

What starts as a comment on how the message of Jesus gets lost through all the marketing and BS gets turned into a pretty hilarious comedy. It’s only about ten minutes long, so there isn’t time for the one joke to wear thin. Some of the jokes are a little too obvious, but as the whole thing is so short it’s eminently forgivable. You can watch this on youtube, it’ll take you a couple of minutes and you probably won’t regret it.

Battle of the Sexes

What really happens in women’s bathrooms? Well, this movie tries to answer that question in humorous fashion. Yes, most the shorts are comedy, but shorts are easier to do as comedies. Anyway, a woman goes into the bathroom and gets a report on a man, deciding on whether or not to continue the date with him. Yeah, similar shorts have been done before, but this one is really fun.

Well, that’s if for now. I know this was short, but if you watched all the movies it should have taken about half an hour, and that’s not a bad slice of entertainment. Maybe later I’ll get you some more shorts to enjoy. For now though, this is all I’d planned on.
