My Review Of "Motivational Growth"

Don Thacker's "Motivational Growth" is a bizarre hyperbole-truly modern. Honestly I think the film will be this generation's "Little Shop Of Horror", just replace the singing with fun animation graphicsrife with Adult Swim quality humor. Actually take that film and shakeit with some "Stay Tuned" and you have the perfect horrortini for your maturing viewing pleasure. It is a story of madness in true-to-form dark, satirical entertainment.

The story follows Ian Folivor, a depressed, recluse with a strong agoraphobic agitate. The film plays out in a strange spectacle of narration, animation and melodramatic adulation of phobias. The antagonist to Folivor's tragic character is a talking mold build-up against the bathroom sink. Lets face it, single men (sometimes even gay men) are not the best of housekeepers. So it is just a matter of time before some bacteria or fungus is allowed to evolve into a self aware annihilator of humanity. Of course there is so much to this story thatI can't talk about as not to spoil the film. Let's just say that even though the premise, at times, seems predictable or flagrant, it still manages to carry some very entertaining and surprising moments. It is just a fun story, that is executed wonderfully by Thacker both with the writing and directing.

The special effects and sound track used on "Motivational Growth" are both very stylized, practical effects that push the story even further into the dark, satirical wasteland. The special effects offer up some truly gross and lighthearted exaggeration to the situation at hand with Folivor's condition and circumstance. The practical effects are done nicely, reminiscent of mid 80's horror comedy stuff –notably "TerrorVision" . The animation and graphics used actually add a sort of hallucinogenic quality to the film's overall persona. It would have went over even more had the dude's dealer been among the series of intrusions into Folivor's sacred space.

The sound track is what you would expect. It doesn't bring anything extremely new or altered to the film, but it works to create an atmosphere equal to the kind of story that Thacker is telling in "Motivational Growth". Fun, entertaining, satirical and creepy. The film is a very strong, indie horror comedy that screams instant classic. The downer moment in the story was the actual dramatic interaction between Folivor and his object of affection. Had it been as out there as the interaction with the rest of the characters then I wouldn't have anything bad to say about this film. Still it is a pretty stellar horror/comedy.

Complete Joke

If this is what passes as comedy theses days then I have to avoid this genre. Actually there was no comedy but the entire film was a complete joke.

I do not have any problems about bad movies those movies have bad ratings and I do not watch them. But when a film gets almost 6/10 ratings while even 1/10 feels quite generous, I get irritated. Which is what I felt when I was watching this film.

Among all the things story was the absolute worst, without any real plot. As well as the acting was not very convincing, the characters in the film were not interesting either.

NOT RECOMMENDED.

Piece of garbage

I wonder what that guy that gave Don Thaker a budget of 176000 dollars must think now after watching Motivational Growth. He must be devastated that someone fooled him with this script. I saw already a lot of very stupid movies but this one must be in the top ten. What a waste of time and money this movie is. It's not because the whole movie is gross, that's actually the fun part, but just because the story is so lame and boring. I checked at least ten times during the movie to see how long more I had to endure this piece of crap. The only positive about this movie would be Danielle Doetsch. She's a candy for the eye but that's about it. Everything else is total garbage. And don't believe any review that are positive about Motivational Growth. They are all liars, that are probably somehow related to anybody that worked on that movie. Avoid at all costs!
