Blind Date Online Review–Better Than Anticipated
When you read the comments of a short film on YouTube, as I like to do to figure out where things are going before I even start watching, and you see a comment that starts talking about D&D monster manuals as they relate to the plot, you swallow hard. Will this bring down the movie?
The plot, however, is a lot simpler than D&D–it’s all about a blind date that goes terribly wrong.
First off, for a three minute YouTube short, this sucker’s got some fantastic effects. Seriously, my mind is quite thoroughly blown. Second, the plot is also fairly decent if a little disjointed, but in short film terms, that’s almost necessary. They’ve thrown out the ballast of character development and plot development to make the main thread go fast as possible. And fast it is indeed.
The Screenhead Ten Scale applauds this little surprise and hands over a seven out of ten for doing its job well but not going quite far enough, which is something of a necessity given the nature of the film itself.
