The History Of Future Folk Reviews

Willamette Week

It plays out as a simple, sweet story of two alien lifeforms who discover that falling in love and playing the banjo is a better mission than intergalactic genocide. And that's a message I think we can all get behind.

The History of Future Folk comes across like the product of a group of people having way too much fun taking a silly premise seriously, and it's infectious.

It's out-of-this-world funny.

A delightful sci-fi adventure that simultaneously strips the genre down to its low-tech basics and infuses it with audacious new verve.

The movie is affable enough, but its "charms" just couldn't reel me in.

Eye for Film

Whilst it requires a bigger than average leap of faith, you'll have to keep your disbelief suspended with iron chains and it sill won't be everybody's cup of tea, this film will reward those who give it the chance with rare delight.

Seattle Weekly

This is a shaggy, enjoyable, homebrewed sci-fi tale where the costumes and plot resemble one of those lo-fi "sweded" remakes in Be Kind Rewind.

It is so charming and sweet ... and the songs are so winning that it is impossible not to fall for it.

The nonsense proves good, goofy fun that works well because "History" at least acts as if it takes itself seriously, going easy on obvious ironies while dishing out catchy tunes.

You may not fall in love with the film, but I'd be surprised if you came out of it not feeling happier. In fact, if that happens, please watch it again. You must have done something wrong.

There's much to admire about visitors from beyond who believe that the answer to our problems might arrive courtesy of just the right chord progression.

The lack of emotional connection with any of the characters hurts the film the most. The History of Future Folk attempts to be this fun musical comedy, but falls flat thanks to its shortcomings.

This earnestly cute low-budget effort features endearing performances from the Future Folkers, some charming live performances, and a nice cameo by ex-Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider.

Television Without Pity

[It's] more interested in making you smile than making you think. And it mostly accomplishes that modest goal, thanks to the witty music and charmingly low-fi production values.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better example of unadulterated escapism in which the craftsmanship lies not in visual polish but the universal appeal of a catchy tune.

The movie could have made its points - war is bad; music is the universal language - in half the time. But the harmonies are sweet, the acoustic picking impressive.

There are limitations to this low-budget effort, but there's also tremendous conviction and cinematic skill, creating a far-off world with nothing but red plastic and enthusiasm.

In addition to being funny, the movie has a surprising sense of warmth and an abundance of charm.

It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen.

Even as an apocalyptic plot-pushing rescue mission unfolds, slapstick police chases keep the level of diverting quirk high, and the husband-wife/father-daughter dynamics remain central.
