Movie Review: Slickster Magazine
Ah, the fan film. It is, time and time again, the focal point of scrutiny in the film world. Why tell a story with someone’s characters when you could use your own? Because you love them, that’s why. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, and this is not exception.

These puppies can really run the gamut, with one side being fantastic – I’m looking at you, Power Rangers – to completely awful. Often, these films are hindered not by the good intentions of their creators, but by a limitation of cash/talent/experience.

You can imagine my hesitation when I sit down to a flick that not only wears it’s fan film badge proud, but does so with two of my favorite characters. Luckily for me, this flick is much better than it could be.......cont.
