Summary: What I bought it for was to make movies. Ironic as that sounds- it is true. There is a feature inside the game under the sandbox option to make actual movies with stars you can design. I haven't checked to see if the server is still ther but supposedly you can upload your movies to it. I learned of this game on the Machinima forums as a means of producing directable machinima shorts. My Machiavellian plan is to make a you tube show using this as a base segment.
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.
A few mistakes keep this game from being perfect.....

Summary: Let me start off by saying this game isn't for everyone. If your into micro-managing and sims style/tycoon games... then you will enjoy the The Movies. This game is not perfect in any way.... but what the Movies does do good....it does really GOOD. Now i have had this game before... i have played it on both Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Prenium. The game actually ran better on Windows Vista on my laptop.
Summary: This game is so hilarious, but at the beginning it is very mundane, but just hang in there because it gets better. This game does take up a lot of space on your hard drive, so make sure that you have enough space on there. It is so fun to dress your stars in the emerging fashions, and see how they change from decade to decade. The awards shows are interesting as well because the presenters fashions also change from decade to decade.
Summary: The game DOES work on Windows 7. Don't listen to all of the other reviews, they just don't know how to get it to work correctly. I figured out how. The auto play feature IS NOT compatible with Windows 7 apparently... So when you put the disc in, it gives you an error. But, that's not a big deal, the game itself and the setup software are 100% compatible. So, when you put in the disc, ignore the error message.
