Tuesday Night Fever
I don't think this is a movie. This is the biggest problem with 'Tuesday Night Fever' that I can see. Sure, there are a few different scenes, and there is filming and editing and a background score but that's about it. There is no story or nothing that really makes this anything more than a YouTube video. It all goes a little something like this.
Man goes outside to dance in a disco suite. Man dances in strange places. Man was day dreaming the entire thing. I can relate to the last part, and would love to simply get out and dance the day/night away. But as for a definite plot? I just wrote it. This short film has no story, no dialog and no real point. It does have a kicking background score, I'll give it that.
I'm of the understanding that this title was a school project of some sort and in truth, there is some talent present. Maybe with the editing or the leading man's ability to dance. But it's really hard to give a rating to a title that doesn't feel like a movie at all. As for how it all looks? Read on.
Not good. Some form of filters have been applied, maybe more than one. I imagine it was decided that the old film look would suite the content. It may also be possible that the filter(s) were applied to try and hide some questionable footage. Either way, it didn't work for one main reason. It was hard to see all of Joe Fishel's awesome dance moves. Not using the filter(s) would probably have been a better bet.
It's just really hard to rate a film that is hard to see and has no story, and is under 3 minutes long. It's really amazing when you consider it has 4 writers and 4 directors. It's much easier to classify it as a video and move on. But there is something here that catches the eye. Something that is mildly entertaining about this title. I'm not writing that it's a complete wash, or anything like that. I'm simply stating that in my opinion, it's not a movie. It's not something you can rate using the same scale as you would a proper film. Am I just nit-picking? Maybe, but you can be the judge. The title is available to watch below.
