Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Logorama's plot involves the adventures of two cops who are chasing an armed criminal through the streets of a fictionalized, stylized city. All characters and items throughout the film are depicted using real-life brand logos. The cops are portrayed as Michelin Men and the villain as Ronald McDonald.

Logorama won the Oscar for best short animated film this year and I just finished watching it. At 18 minutes long it is a movie worth seeing and won´t take much of your time up. The 18 minutes fly by so fast that I even saw it again right after. You won`t regret it because it is a very original short film that uses corporate everyday logos, that we are all globally familiar with, for everything (characters, buildings, cars, etc.). Logorama sends a clear message of how we are…
The Good: Lots of logos! (Go ahead and try to catch them all.) Unique concept. Some really witty gags (My favorites are the ones involving Mr. Peanut and Weight Watchers).
The Bad: It's not that clear with what it's exactly trying to say, which is largely in part due to it feeling like it's just a bunch of random ideas and plot lines thrown together.
The Bottom Line: Worth checking out just for the fun of trying to catch all the logos, jokes, and references.
un pastiche donde se entronca lo mismo que el film noir y el de buddy cops --allí la conversación entre los dos policías michelin--, el heist film con criminales enmascarados --heat, the town, the killing--, la disaster movie --tiene una toma igualita a una de impacto profundo-- y el fin del mundo. qué bonita cosa. para verla, clic.
Wow! This Academy Award winning short animated film is amazing. Had a big grin on my face from the very beginning to the end of the credits. I must admit that I was more than a little shocked to see the character of Ronald McDonald (played as himself), as such a "Bad Ass Dude". It is the first time I have seen him in a role like this and it was an eye opening contrast to the Ronald McDonald that I grew up with.
I think part of the enjoyment of the film is the nostalgic feeling you get, seeing so many of the Logos and Brand Names from the past, and making immediate associations with the roles they played…
This is one of those movies that you have to watch more than once to see what you missed the first time.
ah, I loved it... I fucking loved it... this is awesome.. and you don't like it, you are a fucking boring person.. ah, I am delighted right now... !!
Won - Best Animated Short Film
Can't believe it won an Oscar. Very glad it did.
Logorama is a short animated film comprised of only company logos, band logos, film logos and company mascots.
The short is about two Michelin Man police officers going up against criminal mastermind Ronald McDonald as he takes them on an intense car chase and into a hostage crisis.
David Fincher voices the Pringles Mascot.
Famous brands is dyin'
Flawless delivery of a simple concept.
I would have excised the swears though. They didn't add anything and reduce the size of the audience.
This award winning animated short is inventive and daring and (I would imagine) a copyright minefield!
In a fantasy version of Los Angeles where every building, vehicle and character is a brand trademark or logo a mad clown goes on a violent killing spree. Chased by the cops a series of collisions gunfire and explosions unleash devastation and spectacle.
This darkly humorous tale is fast paced and witty. I have no idea how the film makers got away with the use of the logo's of hundreds of companies (some of them famously litiguous like Disney and McDonalds) but it results in 25 minutes of eye popping treats which will require painstaking freeze framing if you want to catch everything.
Animation buffs will love it and everyone else should find this a fun use of half an hour.
too much style hindered the supposed awesomeness.
and that ending was just plain meh.
