I like the one with the american werewolf being a US soldier in afghanistan fighting againsg the taliban.
Also as much as people might dislike this thing for being too violent or showing too much nudity i like it. Im tired of animation being held back because of children. As much as i like avatar, or the dragon prince it gets really jarring when there is no blood or barely any scratch in fights. Or how death is handled off screen
Really good to see Netflix giving creators a platform to make some cool & weird stuff. We need more anthologies like this! Personal favourites are probably The Witness (that was one HELL of a short!) and Alternate Histories (gotta say, loved seeing a bunch of jews beating Hitler up). Beyond the Aquila Rift looked pretty cool, too, but then it turned out it's a
Saya no Uta remake
, which felt rather anticlimactic. Otherwise it's a bunch of pretty entertaining and funny, if largely inconsequential films.
I love animation anthologies. Robot Carnival is a personal favorite, Genius Party was good too. I always recommend Memories as well (not quite the same as the others, but well worth checking out). Very interested in seeing this.
Looks like that is likely "Ice Age" based on a story by Michael Swanwick (who wrote with William Gibson the excellent cyberpunk short story "Dogfight", which appears in the collection "Burning Chrome"). My guess would be it being based on the short story "Scherzo with Tyrannosaur" which was expanded into a novel titled "Bones of the Earth", which heavily involves time travel and paradox.
Netlifx misspelled "boobs, cocks and body parts" i think, at some point i was wondering if it wasn't contractual to have frontal nudity in every short.
That said it's really fun to watch entirely, and amazing to see how varied it is visually. Some of those shorts have an insane budget it's scary, and we're not used to see super realistic cgi animated movies, outside of videogame intros.
Most of it is dumb and seems written by students or something, but it gets better toward the end. Zima Blue has a real nice idea.
The last one is something else in term of tech and art direction, it's insane. A masterpiece
Wow... Beyond the Aquila Rift has some impressive CGI. Loved the story. Watched a bit of FF Spirits Within a month ago and by comparison, it’s mindblowing how far we’ve come in photo real CGI. Decent story too!
Aside from the Yogurt thing, this is great so far.
Done with the first 7 episodes, and just had mind fucking blown by the last one. FUCKK, that looked so good, and the story was awesome. The CGI was spectacular in so many ways. Can't wait to see what's more in store. So far the favourite episodes are 1, 2, 3 and 7.
