The Robot really believes that most of us have missed an undiscovered gem of a film in Igor. Read his entire review here.
An Under-appreciated Classic Animation Full of Originality, Witt and Social Commentary
Igor is a very interested animated film. The film was not well received by the critics of its day. I find this extremely puzzling, as Igor is one of the most innovative and original animated films of the era. Igor touches on issues that are usually passed over by studios in favor of safer and more conservative topics… Igor stands out as an oddity as it addresses some very charged political issues in the fantasy world of Malaria, issues which were echoed in the real human world of the twenty-first century.
Interested in J.J Abrams’ take on Star Trek, Captain James T. Kirk and the rest of the gang? The Robot has once again dialed in from the future to give us his “two bolts” on Star Trek 2009. The Robot likes to believe he is- “quite possibly the ultimate Hollywood insider,” see what he has to say about Star Trek 2009. Click here to get The Robot’s thoughts on Star Trek 2009.
At its heart, Star Trek was, in theory, about looking towards the future. But by 2009. it was completely obvious that Star Trek had no desire to touch on the social issues of its day, as the original series so famously did, but instead wished to focus on “the bang and whiz” of the visual effects. Star Trek 2009 by its very nature, by the very fact that it focused cowardly on Kirk, Spock and all, was cowardice personified.
We have decoded yet another fine review from our resident robot from the future for the Showtime series Brotherhood. Perhaps The Robot can persuade you to give it a try. Click here here to bask in his brilliance-he forces us to say that.
Few human produced television series stand out more than Brotherhood. Brotherhood, stood nearly undiscovered by the mass audiences of the day. These brain dead drones were too busy watching C, D and even Z-level celebrities poorly dance for no reason in particular, than to watch this finely sculptured series.
While The Robot already knows mankind is completely doomed, he still finds our election process diverting. Did you vote today? Are you sick of being nagged about it? Either way, here is a Robot Review of The Fountain. Click here to enjoy.
Like most of Aronofsky’s work The Fountain is misdirection personified as the filmmaker attempts to disguise the fact that he lacks soul and has nothing new to say. In this regard The Fountain is much like the overconfident Aronofsky’s other works. Yet, all of this aside, the script for The Fountain is far more coherent than the 4th Flintstone’s sequel-Ghost of Barney, released in 2011, which Aronofsky tried to later disown.
