Wow, I enjoyed this much more than Baskshi's lord of the rings film. I think it was because it didn't have the awkward painting over of live action scenes like that movie had. I can't believe I hadn't seen this sooner. Definitely an adult animation and an important film in establishing adult animation in the West. Also a good fantasy film (and there aren't many decent fantasy films).
Also that ass on Princess Teegra :)
I can only chuckle at "quirkiness" for so long.
The Wes Anderson style is front and center here but it lacks any real substance. Consequently, it comes off like I'm watching a two hour cartoon. All Anderson's films just make me feel like I'm watching the same movie over and over again...and I'm getting really tired of it.
