The Days is an action-adventure comedy film created by Alex using Garry's Mod on June 1, 2014. It chronicles loads and loads of characters from various video games and TV programs on their quest to save the universe. It is known for having, by far, one of the biggest character rosters in a film yet with EVERYONE being a main character. Due to how big the movie is, the plot and character list has to be split into multiple sections.
Here's a summary of the plot in the film. For a more detailed analysis, go here.
Sometime on the release day of the film, a mysterious organization has been revealing plans to destroy the known universe. Due to unoriginality popping up once in a while, this organization is known as the Bad Guys with the Good Guys serving as their antipode. Some people who have hated each other since the beginning of time become friends and form a resistance to put the Bad Guys in their place. This culminates into some battles taking place in big cities, the moon, and Terraria itself. Eventually, Chuck approaches the leader of the Bad Guys, engages him in an epic fistfight and stomps on his head really hard for good measure. That's right. That's what this film is actually about. It doesn't really help that Greeny is the head writer for it.
The Days has an 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Those who didn't like it either couldn't comprehend the plot structure or why the characters would team up for a common cause while everybody else enjoyed the action scenes and the dramatic confrontations.
Here are some things that were supposed to happen on the film, but didn't make the cut due to complications with authenticity or time restraints.
Scenes (Complications with Authenticity and/or Time Constraints)
- Originally, all of the Sailor Scouts were supposed to be in the film, but Alex couldn't work out everybody else without certain viewers getting pissed off; as a result, Sailor Moon remains in it. They might come back for the sequel though.
- James Bond was booked for a cameo appearance in sections 8, 12, 20, and 26. Due to comprehensive complications, this plan was dropped.
- There was a scene which Mario has to save Princess Peach in her own castle being taken in a hostage situation, but it was ultimately scrapped due to the fact that the producers couldn't find an appropriate place to put it in. In the Director's Cut, this scene was put back into the movie at section 26.
- To reflect each hour of the film, there were supposed to be 3 additional "intermission" scenes- one with a Mimicutie dancing, another with Wilson, Willow, a bouncy ball, and a Pianta in a desert location, as well as one featuring random things bouncing around with the springs in Terraria. Like the hostage scene above, these 3 were put in the Director's Cut as well.
- In "The Cabal," after some guys find a copy of the NES port of the game with the same name, they were supposed to play it shortly after the discovery. This was taken out to maintain consistence in the scene.
