An attempt to send "Fight Movie" to the film festival circuit. Suffice to say it didn't work.

It all started when Richie proposed the idea of "Fight Movie 1.5". The only reason I agreed to do it was because I wanted aspect ratio continuity, leading to another idea I had- using segments from that trilogy, wrap that around with a surrounding plot.
After all, the first three films (pilot, 1.5 and II) were virtually plotless (as the club we were screening these to criticized about; at they were fed up at 1.5), and there wouldn't be much trouble.
In a way, it's almost a sequel to "Fight Movie 3", without much of a need to see the aforementioned, since it shows what you need to know already.
Wrapping around a "Reservoir Dogs" style plot with some other twists, this is a true conclusion to the "Fight Movie" series. [ahem]
Filming this was the most frustrating thing I could possibly think of, though. Actors were not getting their lines straight, and no idea as to what line to start at. I had to go over it millions of times, with many distractions throughout.
And did the whole thing get executed as I wanted? No, there's still a couple of lines I felt vital to the script that didn't come out, including a vital plot twist.
At least the ending came out like I wanted it to be. With action movie and video game homages in the rest of the series, I decided to target some of my own personal favorites: silent masterpiece "Greed", "The End of Evangelion".
In the aftermath, the San Francisco International Film Festival rejected it. When I received the rejection letter in the mail, it was the happiest moment of my life- in my personal opinion, this is the worst job I ever did directing a movie.
Aspect Ratio- 2.20:1 [16x9 master]
Initial Filming Date- 26 November 2004 ["Fight Ultimatum" segments]
Filming Wrap Date- 26 November 2004

We really thought "Fight Ultimatum" was the finale
