Director's Comments

And the saga continues... But this is probably going to be the last one though, since I'm out of ideas. Though, I did say that last year, but that was because I couldn't see any possible way to make another one (until this year late January). Anyways, hope you guys like this one! Spread the love! :D

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
The first "Valentine" was one of the closet things the brickfilming community has to a bona fide holiday classic, and filmyguy is back trying to recapture its simplistic charm in this sequel. In its own right, it's a solid film; the animation is as sharp as always, the silent movie feel is as good as ever, and while the sets are perhaps a bit too basic in this film, they still retain the charm present in the original. But storywise, this one just doesn't live up to its predecessor. "Valentine" was a classic tale of a lovelorn guy chasing an unattainable dream and finally finding true love. I won't spoil the story of "Valentine the Sequel," but suffice to say that the emotion is completely absent and the main character is completely unsympathetic this time around. Ultimately, it's certainly not a bad film, and at four minutes worth a view on your part (if nothing else, for the recycled yet still awesome appearance of the bouncing mowhawk dude), but this sequel is unfortunately just another example of a second effort that falls well short of the original.
