Film Crew Recap: Hollywood After Dark

Over the past few months, The Film Crew has gotten a fair amount of interweb press coverage for their DVD releases. If you’re still undecided about whether these Midwestern mooks and their straight-to-video shenanigans are worth your hard-earned scratch, then you can use these handy-dandy collections of reviews as your guide. Here are all the reviews I’ve come across for Hollywood After Dark. Feel free to add more in the comments. Killers From Space reviews will follow shortly after.

DVD Talk | 4.5/5*

IGN | 9/10

Pop Matters | positive

Blogger News Network | positive

DVD In My Pants | 4/5*

Blogcritics | mostly positive

DVD Lounge | 8.5/10*

ComicMix | very positive

And now the Deep Ape Highly Mathematical Overall Average Summary Grade Thing: A-. Almost everyone seems to think that the movie segments are great, but everyone seems to find the “host segments,” movie video quality, and extras lacking. Ultimately, though, these don’t detract much from their experience. In other words, go buy it. It’s not too shabby.

* This is the rating for the actual “in-theater” riffing content. They review and rate other aspects of the DVD, such as video quality and extras, but I’ve excluded these numbers and focused on their opinions of the real meat of the product. Who cares about the video quality, you dirty film snobs?
