Summary: The movies is one of the best simulation games ever, the stunts and effects does add a bit of diversity to the repeatability requirements within the game. If you have any interest in movies or the movie industry you'll love this.
Excellent for making custom movies, but one annoying bug.

Summary: To be honest, I bought this with no interest in dealing with stuntmen and adding stunts to my films. If you've played The Movies, you know there's a lot going on and only so much stuff you can reasonably keep track of. I've got 3 directors and 5 actors/actresses and I don't have the inclination to add any more micromanagement. Plus your stunts can fail and mess up your movie rating, no matter how much you train your guys.
Summary: This game is so much fun i wish they would make another expansion but i do not see that in the future. The stunts are great and adds more realism, but do not forget to buy the original. these games are awesome and a great buy plus a good way to waste time.
Summary: Like the one before it, the object is very simple. Make movies. The studio making mechinc is the same with a few more sets. The new stuntman feature makes the movies a little more comolicated to make. In summary this game is as good as the first possibly better. If you liked the origanal get this.
An expansion that added to a game that REALLY needed it.

Summary: The Movies:Stunts and Effects does add alot to the game. Now there is alot more options with certain types of action,sci fi and horror flicks, as well as romantic and comedy with a bit of creativity. It was over all a good expansion that allows the player to create movies in their own way. However, one of my annoyances with it is the fact that the lot does not get any bigger, it's annoying!
Summary: As many have said, you should get this expansion if you are getting the movies. After you've played with the expansion once you will wonder how you ever played The Movies without it. But the stunts are only the title feature. Plenty of other things are new too: MAKING CUSTOM MOVIES- -Freecam. Allowing you to move the camera yourself allows you to get exactly what you want out of a shot. -"Environment".
Summary: This expansion pack provides added special effects and camera controls that are needed if you want to use "The Movies" for serious machinima or even more advanced filmmaking. Particularly useful is the ability to save a custom scene after it has been set up - something missing from the basic game.
