~O) Chester Wutborg's Movie Reviews
Hello, SGN readers! Today, I'll be reviewing the award-winning smash hit, Willyfighters. The movie was based off of and inspired by the critically-acclaimed book of the same name, where ferocious alien invaders take over the Shire, and the only way to drive out the intruders is to beat the pompous Emperor Babbletrus as his own dangerous game; the game of Willyfighting. The fate of the Shire rests in the hands of the charmingly-apathetic and reluctant Joe Davidson McDavid, played by the talented Will Fagé, and his comedic sidekick, Squõrt, played by famed actress Josie Rocks.
Overall, I thought the movie was adequate. I feel it could have stuck more true to the book, and the movie would have been much better if the author, Hærd Pepe (brother of famous Fulfwotz director Bönre Pepe), had been recruited as executive producer. Also, as I watched the movie, I noticed several things that troubled me. Most of the movie was filmed on-site in Mainland and Oranjestad, and in the scene where Babbletrus confesses his love for Squõrt, I saw a man get stabbed in the background. I'm not quite sure if this was planned or not, or if the man stabbed was even an extra in the movie. No one seemed to notice, but I believe I saw blood and the man fall to the ground. I'm still unsure of whether this was or wasn't planned, but it certainly held no significance to the overall plot.
I was also quite confused on what "Willyfighting" exactly was. The movie ends with a large metal door rising upwards, revealing Emperor Babbletrus on the other side, with Joe Davidson McDavid meeting his alien gaze. Emperor Babbletrus smiles, and simply says, "Are you ready to willyfight, boy?" The credits then roll up the screen, and the ending is quite ambiguous and left to the interpretation of the viewer, if they can even get that far.
As for the good parts, it was very well-written and easy for children and slow adults to understand. There was obviously a lot of thought put into the cast, even though half the credits were in gibberish and I wasn't able to find out who played the rest of the characters. With all of this taken into account, I give the movie...
