Get. a. tripod.

Besides the distractingly messy camerawork this was okay, but not much.  It feels like 90 minutes of foreplay that ends with a scene that I imagine was the whole point of making the movie, but which I don’t think the preceding time earns.  Because of this it feels like just another awkward moment.  The performances are good, but their characters are thin and I’m not sure I needed 30 minutes of Cera complaining about Crystal Fairy to everyone else to get who this guy was.  But I didn’t hate it and there are nice moments, it just feels half baked and it was – this was slapped together while they waited for funding on Magic Magic.  I wish they had take their time, but oh well.
