I made a movie called Point Man and it finally released today

Recommended Posts

big ups to everyone who's watched it! walmart keeps running out of DVDs, but streaming through amazon is the cheapest way to watch it from your couch.

predictably, a legion of trolls popped up leaving explicitly racist comments on the youtube trailer and then hurried over to IMDb to leave a bunch of 1-star rankings without actually watching it. it comes with the territory but it's actively harming us, so if you watched the movie, you would be doing me a tremendous favor by zipping over to amazon to leave a brief written review. even a few words will make a huge difference. if you're really feeling generous with your time you can rank it on the imdb page as well.

good news is we are now brushing the top 2,000 films in the world in terms of exposure. IMDb has us ranked over names like magic mike and boondock saints, rarified air for independent films. we're beginning to see critical reviews trickle in, which you can check out here if you want to vet the film's reputation before dropping a few bucks.

Come do a casting call upon the northeast I'd show up and make a fool of myself well enough to earn a role.

How can I get a role in the next one?

it is likely my next film will be unionized, which will mean bringing SAG actors on set, but i may still be able to get people in minor roles if you're interested on getting on a major film set as a background extra. i'll probably post something in the lounge when i start looking for people late this year or early next.

i really appreciate the kind words. hopefully you enjoy the rest of the movie!

one final plea to anyone who enjoyed the movie to take a second and review it on the amazon page and the IMDb if you can spare a few seconds of time. even critical reviews are welcome! the whole effort has been overrun by illegitimate troll accounts vote-stuffing the IMDb account with 1-star ratings. case in point, our own little huddle adolf hitler admirer CCS/professor chaos popped in to drag it through the mud purely out of spite :eyeroll:

all in all though it's been a resounding success. the exposure we've gotten is above and beyond anything i'd expected. it is incredibly exciting and deeply humbling.

clicking on the profiles of the bad imdb reviewers is a fascinating window into a certain type of person. the one horst dude has like a dozen reviews calling positive reviews on a variety of movies fake. most of them have been imdb members for 15+ years and almost ALL of their reviews are 1 star.

no doubt. the film has garnered three published critical reviews since its release, all three of which have ranked it between a 6 and 7, a very fair assessment and frankly sky-high for an independent film. the 1s are incredibly transparent. lifeless little bastards

Saw this article this morning: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/chadwick-boseman-star-spike-lees-next-movie-netflix-1186145. Looks like you're ahead of the curve, Phil. More movies like this are good for everyone. Having your film pop up in the suggestions for a Spike Lee film could be huge. 

God damn. Another close call Philly ;)

I can help build anything.. Im a weak mind and a strong back.. I was thinking more like holding an BAR and getting shot in the face... or maybe be a Medic and get shot in the face.. my 15 seconds of fame.. lol
