Dumb Yanks ignorantly stumble into something Asian-y and quickly find their one-dimensional lives in sort-of-peril. Yawn. A great looking ghost and Mark Boone Junior thrown over a bland, scareless bowl of cliche. If you're one of the three undiscerning people that enjoyed TEMPLE, you'll likely enjoy this. Which is a shame.
Saw this amazing animated feature as a child on cable TV and it became an instant favorite.
If you're seeking surreal, thought-provoking animation, FANTASTIC PLANET has got to be one of the best. I often get friends and family asking me about adult-oriented animation, I always recommend Laloux, Bakshi and Chomet.
This really isn't the kind of animation one watches for casual entertainment, it's art house fare, so settle in with a desire to be intellectually stimulated and you'll be sure to fall in love with FANTASTIC PLANET.
DGN isn't a wink, nudge or in-joke. This is about as close as you can get to the original drive-in theater biker films of the past. Director James Bickert knows his exploitation and it shows with this filthy, bloody, ultra-violent low budget classic. This is a must-see/must-own film for ANY exploitation aficionado. Everything was on point from costumes and bikes to bar patrons and cheap beer.
