Concept: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Story: 0/4 (Terrible)
Characters: 1/4 (Bad)
Dialog: 3/4 (Good)
Pacing: 4/4 (Great)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4). Amusing in places. It's nothing but references, and a lot of them are over my head. Without Avery's timing, it probably would have been a disaster.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.3/4 (Okay)
