Not very good, but earns a lot of points for its earnestness, music and charm.

The History of Future Folk is a sweet and charming little story that seems destined to become a cult favorite.
Dec 4, 2018
Though competently performed and brimming with enthusiasm, the sweet but slight fable-based film that results is heavily reliant upon its idea and less cognisant of its wavering cinematic execution, however it does provide moments of heartfelt comedy.

It's a well-crafted science fiction tale that will leave you with a smile on your face and a song about farming space worms stuck in your head for weeks.

It's quite a low budget film but they make everything work somehow. It does help if you appreciate B movies or 1960's style Martian films.

It's a fast, cheerful and most of all resolutely cute movie, that absolutely does not demand or expect brooding or deep thought.
Mar 28, 2018
The result is an absolutely charming, fun, and captivating moviegoing experience-and a film that proudly wears its alien heart on its sleeve.
Mar 28, 2018
What I found was something better: a gentle and smart film that mines great jokes from the alienation of being a genuine alien, and which tackles relationships and family issues just as easily as it crafts catchy songs.

The result is a film that earns every inch of its charm. There's no way these real life band members' love of music, family and mankind could be faked.
Mar 28, 2018
It's sweet and cuddly and modest, completley sincere and lacking the irony you'd expect from two guys playing bluegrass instruments while wearing buckets on their heads.

While containing a much higher and polished production value than I admittedly expected, the real success lies in real life bandmates [Nils] d'Aulaire and [Jay] Klaitz's performances.

D'Aulaire's deadpan gravitas makes the low budget sci-fi undertones feel real enough to juxtapose with the ridiculous premise.

Quirky indie sci-fi film has positive messages about music.

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.
Apr 14, 2014
It's out-of-this-world funny.
Apr 10, 2014
A delightful sci-fi adventure that simultaneously strips the genre down to its low-tech basics and infuses it with audacious new verve.
Apr 8, 2014
The movie is affable enough, but its "charms" just couldn't reel me in.
Dec 18, 2013
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.
Aug 14, 2013
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.
