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…
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.
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.
Absolutely awesome. Brilliant concept.
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.
Opdracht: tel hoeveel logo's er in deze kortfilm te zien zijn.
Knowing this short was built around corporate logos, I had hoped it might be satire in the vain of that brilliant scene in Wayne's World where Wayne and Garth troll the idea of shilling commercial products in their TV show. Instead, what I got was a Family Guy sketch that went on entirely too long, vulgar for the sake of it rather than to make any kind of thoughtful commentary. Just calling out how pervasive conglomerates are in any given part of the world doesn't inherently make a story thoughtful. At least I was able to stream this one free from shortoftheweek.com and didn't pay anything to sit through it.
How Logorama Entered My Flickchart
Logorama < Coup de Grâce →…
I expected this movie to be trying to say something about capitalism, but having now seen it, I'm pretty sure there was no message whatsoever. It was still kinda fun to watch though.
A delightful sellout.
Visually striking as these animators use hundreds of different familiar logos to create an entire new world with chaotic characteristics. Highly creative and only sixteen minutes, very much worth your time.
The preachiest short film ever made, Logorama explores how our world, in fact our entire UNIVERSE is made up of advertising products. Very edgy for a short film and the climax perfectly imitates a disaster flick. The biggest flaw is how it gets a little muddled to try and make a point.
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... !!
