The Manual Reviews:

Overall I would tell this is a nice short film and worth 30 mins of your time. The cinematography is wonderful coming from such a tiny squad and budget, there are pretty compositions throughout and they are tied together by a nice soundtrack. The film does a solid job of creating a post apocalyptic globe - It's not overdone or cheesy. It feels peaceful but lonely.There are some flaws - The flow of the movie is sometimes choppy between cuts, and the robot companion didn't create me feel invested or otherwise emotionally drawn in. J.J. Johnston did a solid job as the lead and had some nice moments, although again, I didn't receive a possibility to become particularly invested in his character. The same goes for the story; it's very intriguing, but I never felt truly drawn in to it.Will Magness has true potential as filmmaker and I very much hope this is the begin of more to come. Although the film didn't quite slot together perfectly, it still felt well refined and polished. It's not excellent but there is plenty of potential, I definitely wish to see more of what Will can do.Give this short a watch.


Short film. Photography is quite excellent. Dystopian society/last boy on World diatribe (how would you know without searching the whole planet?) The main hero is depressed throughout, a bit insane, and frankly I don't know why he just didn't commit suicide. Yeah, he attempted it but still...I mean, humans are social animals and there isn't much social interaction with a robot. A lot of Christisnity in this. No where in the Bible does it implicitly state that those who commit suicide go to hell. It does tell all are sin (Romans 3:23), are born of sin, and continuously live in sin. The only unforgivable sin is blasphemy vs the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31). Which means all horrible things humans do to every another (murder, genocide, rape, suicide, etc.,) can be forgiven which is why the Bible doesn't implicitly state one goes to Hell for many things humans search to be detestable. Basically, what I got out of this film: for humans: Heaven and World is the same. If we make heartache on Earth, we'll make it in Heaven, as well. I'm sure that's not the message but that's what I took away from it.


"The Manual" is an American half-hour live action short movie from 2017 and this one received a respectable amount of awards recognition already since its release. Writer and director is Wil Magness and this is his most newest work at this point. And it also reaches audiences like so many another science fiction short films, so it is not too hard to receive your hands on this still relatively fresh movie. There aren't many characters in here at all and I liked it, so the focus is crucial on one or two in the center of the story. Sadly, the storyline itself did not impress me as much as I hoped it would/could, but maybe this is also because I am not the very best science fiction movie fan. Still the visual side, especially the robot, was cute decent, but occasionally, the execution and ideas, also with the plot twist at the very end, simply did not match the talent, so it looks very ambitious, but the street and the production values, especially in terms of storyline saying do not really feel as nice as I wanted them to be. It's not a terrible movie by any means, so everybody who likes the category can give it a go I guess. Still there is nothing here that stands out, maybe the melody comes closest, so overall I have to give it a thumbs-down and negative recommendation. like I said, one only for category lovers.
