This has got to be the most nonchalant time travel film made. Great editing from TM2YC to bring this down to 14 minutes. I know it says "All jokes removed" but this was still pretty hilarious, in a more subtle way. And the ending was excellent.
This was an enjoyable short, very funny. Editing is practically invisible except for a couple cuts and the sepia tint and old time credits (which I’m not certain were necessary, though it did give the whole thing an added layer of time-bending).
Blackadder Back and Forth was a curious old thing...made it at the time as a complimentary peice for the ill-advised Millennium Dome eyesore. While it was nice to see plenty of familiar characters, the comedy seemed to have taken a humor by-pass. It was perhaps a little too in love with the memory of past glories rather than try to do anything new with the ensemble or even the premise.
Mr. Cinema has decided to make this a black and white piece, smoothed over transitions with great throwback music to films of old lore, and removed most of the jokes, and you wouldn't even know they were gone. Blackadder always works better when the characters are playing things completly straight despite their performances being so over the top, and here, holding back on the intended punch-lines makes it funnier in a slightly different way. No longer does it seem like they are trying "too hard", you feel like everything is more natural.
This is a fine edit and does more to instill good faith once again in a product that is usually all too rare to muck up
This was very well done. I added one point to narrative and enjoyment, because of fanedit.org's policy of superfriendly ratings (almost like TV.vom). I was entertained and amused by a complete story unfolding in such little time with very well done opening and end credits. No cuts were visible or audible. Clearly, this was done by someone who has truly mastered the art of fanediting. My deepest respect for that.
What I particularly liked:
- plot unfolding and story development
- fast paced
- the Monty Python feel of it
What I did not like so much:
-overly dramatic score in the beginning and the end
- the helmet on the wall scene felt a bit rushed, I had to watch it a second time to actually see the movement of the centurio.
