Tax time headache?

When Magnet Mart Man goes bad

By johnboy 8 May 2007 33

YouTube now brings us the trailer of the perpetually awaited Canberra science fiction movie, Silicon Spies. The National Gallery and Magnet Mart Man never looked so mean.

Anyone in the know able to tell us how it’s coming along?

What’s Your opinion?

There’s a heap going on behind the scenes with the people who made the trailer. Saw the comment about a waste of time and money (actually its $160K at last count) and while I understand the resentment, wanted to set the record straight and assure that value has been had. Will post an article detailing all the good stuff going on.

Most over-exposed ACT actor doesn’t necessarily mean the best ACT actor by a long shot.

it’s a bit sad when the best actor the ACT has is him!

The magnet mart guy is a flog bag, I pulled up once behind him getting some fuel and the idiot just acted like “oh dont come near me I am famous”
He had a shitbox soarer hehe I should have hit it and seen what he would do

Hope this doesn’t carry the lead in ‘From the producers of Strange James’…can anyone remember this locally made all Canberra film? It also had the Magnet Mart fella in it.

We went to Manuka to see it on the big screen, I never laughed so hard at the movies! The director, poor fella, sat in and was a bit pissed off that people were laughing in the wrong bits. Yet it was one of the more memorable films I’ve seen! so many corker lines, so badly delivered! A classic! I’ve still got the poster.

Bring on the Silicon Spies! It has got to be better than ‘Danny Deckchair’, one of the worst Aussie film I’ve seen.

I don’t think it’s MagnetMartMan (Brendan’s) car. Last I saw him he was driving a black Honda S2000. He told me it was the fastest car ever made and he told me some other sh1t too.

Looking through the crew listing on the site, I see lots of ex-AIE students on the CGI team – good to see them getting into something cool, without having to move interstate!

Maybe the money all went into buying the car, and everything else’s computer rendered? 🙂
Hey – maybe the Magnet Mart man’s computer rendered…?

I wonder if the Corvette belongs to the director (Dean Toovey) – he used to have a 70’s stingray, woulnd’t surprise me if he’s updated by now.
