Well if those are your take-aways then I highly recommend the actual graphic novel/series itself and maybe check out Gerard Way’s work at DC/Vertigo.


#1029

it’s definitely cliffhanger-ish!


#1031

Who the fuck watches the Oscars? Especially this year?


#1032

and the award for best picture goes to… black panther


#1033

Not going to happen they only did that to appease ABC-Disney. But I bet you any of the two animated Disney films will beat Spider-Verse.


#1034

Can’t remember a less exciting year of nominations. Good grief.


#1035

The only real duds are Panther and Rhapsody maybe Green Book when I feel particularly poor.


#1037

My father is as about as well versed in the cinematic language as a guy with Broca’s Aphasia

#1042

I had chills throughout the whole thing, I’m not ready.


#1043

neither am I! i just made the impulse decision to binge rewatch the series before season 8 ans after 1 episode I’m remembering how much I miss this show

I don’t think I’m gonna be able to handle the red wedding again

Recently started to watch Love, Death and Robots. A new animated sci-fi, R-rated anthology series on Netflix.

Only watched 2 episodes, but it’s pretty good so far (#1 - Sonnie’s Edge… #17 - Alternate Histories)
They’re all animated and probably directed by different people and animation companies, but the best part is each is a small, digestible piece of content. (between 6-17 minutes). You also don’t have to watch them in order, so you can jump around as much as you want, or look at the content that interests you the most.

World building on Sonnie’s Edge is just enough to get you to want more. I’ve heard that a lot are coined as mini-pilot episodes, and could be easily made into a full-fledged show. Others, like Alternate Histories, are goofy romps in animation and comedy. 6 different ways Hitler could die, and it gets more ridiculous by the second.
I’d recommend it, even with my limited exposure to it right now.

Ohh, i need to watch this soon, i hear only good things all around. But most importantly, i heard that Cedric Peyravernay, who did character design for Dishonored, worked on a first episode of this, so that makes it a must-see :smile:

Now that you mention it, Episode 1 essentially looks like a glorified video game cutscene.
It’s got that uncanny-valley digital feel.

Looks gorgeous though.

A good display of animation, story, world building and characters. Some great animation studios as well, like Blur(Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City, Halo Master Chief Collection), Platige(HITMAN Cinematics, The Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077) among others. I quite liked this series, each episode left me wanting to know more. If i had to pick favorites then it would be:

  1. Zima Blue. Raises some interesting questions about, conscience, life and purpose.
  2. The Witness. Weird story for sure, it’s a looped paradox of some sort.
  3. Ice Age. Interesting take on civilization: our history and where we might go. Reminded me Stephen Hawking’s words, along the lines that if we haven’t discovered any other civilization is because they probably destroyed themselves.
  4. Beyond the Aquila Rift. Reminded me of Starcraft or Dead Space, but from a very personal horror perspective.
  5. Sonnie’s Edge
  6. Secret War. Nice father reveal.
  7. Shape-Shifters
