Too repetitive/not repetitive enough? You can't please all of the people. The remake was how I wanted it to be with some cartoon animated violence. A Brickfilm with just fig heads talking is too ho-hum for me.
The opening scene was filler. This was scripted to be made for THAC and my THAC-6 entry didn't even make top-ten because there wasn't enough dialogue or story for the judges.
The nurse was meant to be a distraction. She doesn't say much. I have wanted to try lip-syncing for some time but there's too much dialogue in this film to warrant that amount of effort throughout. After all its a 3rd rate film mostly made in 24 hours. I thought the moving red lips made her more sexy.
Since then 0ldscratch came up with an effective approach in his "Changes" film. It's a variation on the 4 monkey's approach of just opening the mouth like a muppert. Very effective it looks really good. I wanted to try the whole Preston Blair method but it takes so long to do. Next time I'll just outsource the work to Korea.
As for the ending it was no longer strictly THAC so I changed the theme to ironic. To subtle for you?
