A good movie

I’m pretty sure I did watch this animated feature when I was a kid, probably even at school. I was quite impressed back in those days and I thought it was time for a re-watch. Personally, I always had a weak spot with animated movie which tries to be aimed towards a grown-up audience. Indeed, the market is dominated by the kiddies stuff, which is fine, but the tone is rather monotonous. It was a... read more

“I’m pretty sure I did watch this animated feature when I was a kid, probably even at school. I was quite impressed back in those days and I thought it was time for a re-watch. Personally, I always had a weak spot with animated movie which tries to be aimed towards a grown-up audience. Indeed, the market is dominated by the kiddies stuff, which is fine, but the tone is rather monotonous. It was also one of the major weaknesses in this flick, the way they still added some little fluffy bits here and there. It is rather understandable, I mean, the whole thing was terribly bleak which was quite shocking for the audience at the time so, they added the children friendly stuff to make sure they didn’t completely alienate the viewers. Personally, I think they should have gone all the way. Stil” read more

"John Halas and Joy Batchelor's adaptation of George Orwell's allegorical masterpiece became the first British commercial animated feature (an earlier film, 'Handling Ships', was a Navy training film and therefore not released) and marked a distinctly different tone from the popular Disney films. Though critics noticed some small influences from the mighty American studio (such as the cutesy comic relief duckling), Halas and Batchelor's film was far darker and more unrelenting. While Disney too"

"One of the weirdest films on this list, Animal Farm is the first animated feature film from Britian. With stodgy animation and bold storytelling, Animal Farm is both great and not-so-great."
