There's definately lights and camera.. but is there action!?
I've yet to spend time with the custom script editor, but it looks fantastic. I can think of a million scripts I'd love to make into my own little movies, and luckily it seems like the editor takes most of the hardwork out of producing them.
Custom movies aside, the gameplay of The Movies is fantastic. I find myself actually getting annoyed with my little thespian chums. They're so demanding! "I want a makeover", "I want a raise", "I want... I want..." - aaarrggh!!
You have to buy this game though. It's top of my game collection for sure right now.
