Great game overall. One of those quirky games that keeps you immersed.

Summary: So far, I've only played the demo. But I just bought the full version on Ebay. This is a great sim type game, especially if you like the idea of running a movie studio. Sometimes, it's gets too detailed, as you find yourself having to micro manage Stars moods and relationships with other Stars. But to my knowledge, there is no other game just like it, and it has a lot of replay-ability.
Summary: Game Works well on A Windows Vista PC and The Graphics are pretty good for it being a 2005 game. You Start off in the 1920s and go through the years that movies were shot in. You Then Unlock New Sets and Buildings and watch your stars rise in fame, or fall. They Can Develop Eating and Drinking addictions as well..
Summary: There aren't many games that I give a a perfect 10 score. The Movies is a perfect example of an imperfect, entertaining game that is expanded almost endlessly on your own personal imagination. The ability to craft your own short-stories with Sims quality characters (at least Sims back in 2005), and to voice act in your own movies is something unseen. If you're looking into animation, or anything of the sort, pick this game up for $10 and let your imagination run wild.
This game is too hard to summarize in one sentence. It's just that great.

Summary: Very fun game. If you love the Sims, you're going to love this. It's very user friendly, basically, it's easy to catch onto just by doing the step by step tutorial. It's like any progression, real life game, you start from the bottom and make your way up. Once you get your stars going, your lot poppin', you're going to feel the satisfaction. I would definitely recommend to this ANYONE who enjoys the Sims as much as I do.
Summary: a great game playing experience with the movies because not only do you see first hand on making movies you also get to run your own studio. you start in the 1920s and work up to the 20th century making movies and winning awards along your career. you will enjoy it i know i am.
Summary: Great Game for all of those who dreamed about running thier own hollywood set. You can manipulate everything from what your stars where to what props end up on your movie set even import your own sound files to go along with your movie production. The game starts off fairly easy but then gradually increases in complexity as the actors begin to get more fussy the higher their star rating gets.
Summary: Okay this is not quite what I was expecting. I thought you could make your own movies and actors, as in write a script and create actors for it but it's that way in away but more of a sims game and I do love my sims 3 so, it's a good game, ty!
Summary: I had awaited the release of this game from when I first heard that Lionhead was releasing a simulation game that would let you make your own movies. But once again, Lionhead promised us the world and gave us Wisconsin. The content is limited, the game play tacky, and the universatility (made up word but you get the idea) was merely so-so. Despite all this I do find myself going back to the game from time to time and I don't know why.
