Looks decent for something that was probably done on a shoestring budget. Funny tidbit is that the story on the ET game actually seems to be more than urban legend, the bit about the cartridges being used to fill up land. I've read about that years ago and many times over.
Yeah, I think the budget was around 300-400K or something, but don't quote me on that. From the announcement to it's actual release it took almost 5 years though. The movie lenght, with almost 2 hours, isn't that bad either.
€: Just looked it up on Wiki.
The film's budget of more than US$325,000 was secured entirely via Internet crowdfunding
As I said I want to watch it on Netflix instead of downloading. Legal and shit. It's also so more comfortable using my PS3 to watch Netflix on the app. (instead of downloading something beforehand, then hooking up my laptop to the TV).
Yeah, I could not watch one episode at a time either. Not that I could watch like 5 hours straight, but only watching one or maybe two episodes at a fixed time? No way. I don't even have regular TV via satellite anymore since months and I don't really miss it at all.
