Our Evolution is Futile

On Angel’s Egg…

I refuse to rate this film. Because I can’t.

The animation was great, the tone was great, the music was great. It created an incredible atmosphere that is creepy, but there is one problem:

NO PLOT!

I mean, if you like surrealism, then this is a great film! But for the other 99%, there is no reason to watch this, unless you are really into visuals and sound alone.

No rating.

Bump

Had something in my eye yesterday, so I couldn’t go to school. I slept it off. Don’t ask me how that worked.

I need to grow a pair of tits. Then I’d become popular.

Heavy Metal!!! YEAHHHH!!!!

Its an animated film from Canada. Its kind of like a stupid, hardcore version of Robot Carnival. Four out of six of the scenes contain cartoon nudity, although it is far from sexy. The animation is just all over the place in quality.

Uhhh…shorts 1,2, and 6 were the most fun, because they had, well, endings. The other three had their moments, but the endings were abrupt.

The film’s biggest advantage: energy and craziness. It is similar in orginality to Robot Carnival, only without many boring bits. The soundtrack was also pretty good.

The biggest disadvantage: Pretty stupid.

B. Its kind of a dumb film, but you can rock to it.

Update…BLARGGG

Gatorade + Soda might have made me sick. I threw up a bit…then one good chunk. Hardest to reach to, like, ever. Shouldn’t have drank so much water and soda beforehand.

I watched Mars Needs Moms, which is now one of the biggest box office bombs of all time. It was okay. The animation was very good, but the plot was incredibly generic. At least it had a moment near the end that kind of shocked me, so there is that.

B-. Because I am feeling generous. You could do a lot of worse. Still better than Cars, and probably Cars 2.

Voices of a Distant Star…

It is not even 30 minutes long. Its plot is kind of weak, kind of like Gunbuster, except the aleins are from the Gundam 00 Movie. There is no conclusion, and it goes the direction you expect it to.

BUT WHY AM I GETTING TEARY!!??

B. Go ahead and watch it. It doesn’t take much time.

No More “Song of the Day” :(

Just don’t feel like it anymore. Oh well.

Tales from the Earthsea…

One of the worst films I have ever seen. Goro doesn’t even begin to capture the magic that is father did.

Okay…the music is decent as well as the animation. But everything else…

The plot was terrible. So many details are just completely ignored by the end of the movie. What was the main charcter looking for? What was the wizard looking for? Is that orang-haired lady a witch? What are the powers of Teru? What was up with the main charcter’s “shadow-self”? Was the main charcter a victim of mind control? How was the villian going to achieve immortality? What about the DYING WORLD?

This movie was so bad, it could have been good if it weren’t for the terrible pacing. Seriously, there are three fight scences, and little happens in between them. The battles aren’t even that long or that good. A movie doesn’t need fight scences, but when your film is so poorly done…

It was pretty funny to see the villian. Not only did he look like a cross between Michael Jackson and Manson…on a diet, but he seems to have the magical ability to teleport from place to place when off-screen. Otherwise, he was pretty generic, just like the plot.

The poster of this film indicated that there was going to be dragons in the film. However, they only appear three times, rarely mentioned otherwise. They were in the opening scene (which was pointless), the momement Aaron and Teru hugged, which was chessy as Hell, since it was after one the worst speeches I have ever seen and had no reason for being there (I think the dragon was supposed to symbalize their love), and at the end…where Teru transformes into a dragon out of nowhere, defeating the bad guy with…friendship?

And then they lived happly ever after.

It really seems like either huge plots were removed early on, or, more likely, they needed fodder for ads. It is a shame, though: the dragons are very well made. The fact they spend less than 5 minutes  in the film was a terrible misstep.

I give this film an F+. It is of better quality than Ghost in the Shell (and funnier), but it is longer.
