The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Technical details:

* Genre: Fantasy (the back of the casing says adventure)

* Play time: 118 minutes

* Sound English DTS 5.1, English Dolby 5.1

* Subtitles: Dutch

This wonderful tale brings you to worlds imagined by Doctor Parnassus. Due to a pact with the devil, he is immortal. Obviously there is a price to pay for that, but I won’t go into details because¬†I think this is not what you buy this movie for. For me the value is in the lovely scenery, the beautifully imagined worlds and the original story. A very unique movie with an exceptional tale. If you value fantasy a little bit more than a good story then you enjoy 118 minutes of excitement. Anyone who is interested in something different than the usual movie willl find value in this picture.

 

I can recommend this movie to any fan of the fantasy genre.

Robots

Friday, November 25th, 2011

This is a 3D animated movie. The story is about a robot moving to the big city and particularly ‘Big Wigs’¬† uh, I mean ‘Big Welders’ factory. However when arriving there, things aren’t as he expected them to be. This movie has an original story and some very nice graphics. I especially liked how they textured the ‘suit’ robots (stainless steel) and the ordinary robots which looked much like the tin equipment you had back in the 60’s and 70’s with frayed paint and round chrome edges.

A fun 3D animated movie with a lot of humor and an original story, that I can recommend to any fan of 3D animated movies.
