The Movies: Stunts and Effects, the expansionpack to the game, The Movies, by Lionhead Studios.
Well, I can definately say that The Movies : Stunts and Effects, brings SLIGHT new lease of life, as it not only adds new stunts, but also adds in a great deal of new scenes in which you can add to your movies.
The game again, begins early on in the timeline, with stunts being introduced in the 1960's... which takes a while if starting from the beginning, which gets rather frustrating
GAMEPLAY: The Gameplay of the game does however add even more boring elements. Firstly, you have to train the stuntmen, before you can actually unlock any of the decent stunts, which is pretty annoying, as you have to sit and watch them run round a training machine, The variery in the repetitiveness seen in the Movies has been slightly improved, but not by a considerable amount, the repetitiveness is still present
Whats New?: With The Stunts and Effects expansion pack, you get a selection of new costumes, new sets, new scenes, and new buildings... since it is related to stunts, buildings like hospitals e.t.c
The Movies: Stunts and effects, is a slight improvement on the original game, but in my personal opinion, is still not enough for me to convince you to buy it
I gave this "very helpful" despite the shortness because...well, you are right: there is little else to be said about the Movies expansion pack. The original game was a massive dissapointment anyway!

I like the sound of this game as i've always been interested in making a movie even if it does sound repetitive and boaring at times, i still think i would enjoy it. Nice review, but try adding a little more about the game, maybe the price aswell and other thing like the storage it uses along with gameplay! But still nice
