(au) wrote: A high-concept comedy with an ultra-low budget, The Freebie? is an agreeable if sketchy look at a couple who give themselves a one-night pass to have sex with other people. Puffy Chair? thesp Katie Aselton gets her feet wet as a writer-director but doesn(TM)t leave the shallow end of the pool with this brightly turned-out do-it-yourselfer that possesses mild charm but will likely go further in alternative home-viewing formats than in theatrical release, which Phase 4 will undertake this summer after its Sundance pickup.

The Thunderbiirds first big breakthru from black and white tv series onto the big screen and in color was a huge hype in the 1960's I'm sure. The effects, marionette details, voice acting, and cinematography were all impressive. The part that fails is the long winded story. Was there even a point to it all other than to showcase the effects which were unique for its era? There really was no substance in the plot. Even the puppetry was just down right lazy. The puppets are for the most part are always stationary with their mouths yapping away. Instead of walking they always manage to be be seated on a device that would transport them someplace. Seemed to have ran much longer than it needed to.
