Once upon a time, I started a little website called Dragon Films to help replace the loss of 3DMM International, the main 3DMM site at the time. Today, five years later, I present to you Dragon Films Sigma, the sum of all my web programming experience rolled up into one website. At first, you will probably not notice any drastic changes to the site, as I have kept the visual look pretty much the same. However, begin exploring all of DF's features and you will quickly discover that it is much different than the Dragon Films of yesteryear. Everything is database-driven now, which means your movie queries are made specifically for you every time you visit the site. This way, you can find exactly the movies you want. Would you like to see the 50 most recent updates? Simply visit the Listing page. How about all Fantasy/Sci-Fi movies? Just go to the Theaters page. But what if you want to find a movie that's under 5 megabytes, is directed by somebody named Bob, and is in either the Action/Drama or Comedy theater? With the DFS Search Engine, you can now perform those types of advanced queries with ease.
And best of all, the new database system makes updating the site infinitely easier for me, which means I will be able to update much more frequently. Because of this, I intend to rate movies much more thoroughly and do a better job at keeping the site as current as possible, and yes, this does imply daily (or even multiple-times-per-day) updates, depending on the number of movies I get. However, I am going to start being a little more strict with which movies make it to the Theaters and which movies are placed in the BOMB Theater, as I wish to challenge people to make better movies. This is a very exciting time, and I hope you will peruse Dragon Films and discover all its new features. You can also check out the Webmaster page for more up-to-date information about myself and what Dragon Films means to me.
Also in this update, among over 20 new films, is Final Fantasy... the Ultimate Epic: The First Saga (Chapters 1-10), my magnum opus I began in 1999 and have been furiously working on ever since, and Space Station Alpha, an excellent film by Thomas Saville of SuperSonic Pictures. Be sure to check out these movies and all of the new features of Dragon Films as you visit today.
As always, if there are any problems or bugs with the site, please let me know as soon as possible. I have tried to debug it as much as possible, but I am sure there are still little problems that need to be addressed. Please e-mail me with any bugs you find… don't worry, I don't bite.
Also, if anyone could help me take thumbnail screenshots for movies that have a "Screenshot Coming Soon" image, I would very much appreciate it. Please simply take a screenshot of a frame that acts as a good representative of that movie, paste it into an image-editing program, and e-mail me the bitmap (use the e-mail link on the left). You need not save the file as a .gif or resize it; in fact, I would appreciate it if instead you could send me a .bmp file that has not been resized at all (you can ZIP or RAR the images if you would like). If you need more information, simply drop me an e-mail.
And finally, I must note that it appears my account with Spaceports was terminated, and with it the descriptions for the movie descriptions of the last update. I keep a backup of all Dragon Films files on my computer, but for some reason I simply cannot find these HTML files anymore. I was able to recover a few of the movies' descriptions because of sequels and such, but many are still missing. In the next update I will recover all the movies so they are once again downloadable, but I will not have their descriptions or contact information. If you are the director of one of these movies (which I will list), PLEASE e-mail me so I can update the information about the movie. Also, I have cleared out the entire Links page, so if you want to submit a link please do so with the new format.
Thank you for coming to Dragon Films, where dreams become reality.
