Patryk, your website seems to be down right now, so I can’t download from it.

Will it be up again soon? I sure hope it is…

It’s back again, and I hope it won’t go off for now

Nothing much else to say, but I guess you would like a reveiw. :D

The Cgi is just so cool. Really liked that. The animation’s good, also. They mentioned the voices, but I understand the difficulty getting good voices. I might like a script-up of it, though, because I still can’t figure out some of the dialouge, and if I could it might clear in some of the plot holes.

Speaking of plot holes, I really didn’t see very many of them. And not having zombies is perfectly fine with me. Really, I’m still shaking. That scared me so bad… in a good way, that is.

I’ve been looking forward to this film for a long time, and I must say, you didn’t dissapoint. Other then the voices, I think you have a really good film there. :D

Here ends the Martian Gothic trilogy forever. No matter how it turned out or how confusing it was. It worked at some points. Especialy the conclusion which is never being revealed, but only showed that the Nasa has cleaned up their base and didn’t leave any sign of it, even all footsteps from living astronauts where cleared.
There were no species. I was a virus but the movie has never told that, but also nobody was interested in that, I mean you people no one was a bit interested in the movie background, but just watched the movie and said Wow, I love it. But that was not on my mind I wanted to create a cult, but in that case I’ve failed ugly.
So creating a cult movie with lego’s is something that is hard to reach. (I’ll still try to go on with doing that, in hope my new project will turn out in that what i want.)

I really appreciate your reviews and the warm feedback, but to be honest my ego tells me that this is not how I should make movies.
Honestly I’ve wrote the whole script for mg-3 in a very short time what was a very big fault, I should spend more time on this, like on SS-5 (which i think it’s my best flick till date)
The animation was done i a hurry, but I spend lot of time on sets and camera position and also all cgi and visual effects where carefully done.
So yip, I think for I’ve done a nice job and the technical side of all “mg’s” but on the creativity and story telling I made lot’s ugly faults.

But ok, I’m happy, I’m very happy, I’m more than happy now. B’cos, I can animate (a bit) at 15 fps and know easily how to plan my point of view and know how to intergrade animation and visual effect in to the frame,which is the most important for me. Thanks to mg trilogy I’ve learned many things which will make my future projects only better and better.

Currently my future plans are to set up again a trilogy project again, I’ve got one runnig now, I’ll keep in in tight secret (but soon on my site you can read more about it)
Meanwhile I’ll do some short movies, just some quickies, to expand my acknowlede about sfx and tell a story.

So again, I’m very happy you’ve liked this movie and that’s make me happy, (I’m always happy but these reviews make me more).

Overall, an enjoyable film. All the pros and cons have already been covered, so I won’t go through them all again (man, this reviewing lark is easy.)

One thing I would suggest for your next project, Patryk, is to consider doing the dialogue in Dutch and get someone else to write subtitles. While your english is good, some of the dialogue in MG3 (and the others) sounds stilted and unnatural.

I had that on my mind a while ago, but wouldn’t that be confusing.
I’ll think about it, but i’m sure I’ll go on with dutch languange.
Thanks Buxton, and for your review too.

patryk, after viewing all three martian gothic films, in succession, i must say that you have done a bang up job. watching them, i was delighted in seeing the ways in which you have improved on your filming techniques, animation, and most of all, the CG. all three of the movies are highly enjoyable, and work extremley well as a trilogy.

as for the newest addition, it was certaintly the longest, and for good reason. i liked the way that Medlock (sp?) appeared and played a part in all three movies. in MG3, i also liked seeing something we hadn’t before, the council of dudes who sent the guys to save Medlock. the sets in this one, i thought, were the most detailed and interesting out of all of them. overall, i liked the story, i always like seeing one big story develop through many movies.

as said before by a few, the action in this film was lacking greatly, but i sensed that you did this on purpose. i would have liked to see what was killing the guys, but thats not the way it works sometimes. the only thing is that you showed us zombies and stuff before, why not do it again? not a big deal, but would have been nice.

also, as said be many, the last shot of the film with Medlock standing on the barren wasteland of the planet, no hope, and no salvation, was a terrific and well-executed shot. it gave the ultimate sense that death had come, and in a peculiar way, as Medlock had been the only one to survive the Martian attacks twice before, but now, Mars itself has won. great great filmmaking.

out of four, this movie gets ***1/2 stars, only because the dialouge was kind of simple for this type of film. the dudes in the meeting room are official, so they should sound it. i thought it was paced more or less very well and was filmed excellently. good luck on your next project patryk.
