A good movie

1 year, 7 months ago at Dec 16 13:59
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

"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 took "

Films I've Seen in 2015 (February) (44 movies items)

"When: February 16th-17th First-Time Viewing: Hard to tell. I think I saw parts of it long ago. How: VHS from my collection, and then YouTube. What'd I Think?: Dull, unsubtle, misses the point of the book. Other Notes: My video stopped working, hence why I had to finish it on Youtube. Rerating 8 stars to 5 stars."

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 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

"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."

"Directed by John Halas and Joy Batchelor "AND ANOTHER MOMENT HAD COME, WHEN THEY MUST 'DO' SOMETHING ABOUT IT!" Husband and wife British animation team Halas and Batchelor's now-infamous big screen adaptation of George Orwell's iconic book, is known for being one of the most disturbing non-Disney animated feature films to come out of a conservative decade which was primarily dominated by such.

"03/06/10, Internet George Orwellin Eläinten vallankumous on maailman parhaita satiireja ikinä. Sen sijaan kirjan pohjalta tehty animaatioelokuva jää melko köykäiseksi. Elokuvassa ei tunnu olevan juurikaan uskollisuutta kirjalle, vaikka jotkut pääpiirteet on pidetty mukana. Piirrosjälki on toki huolellista ja musiikki hyvää; elokuvan uskollisuus kirjalle painaakin tässä paljon. Orwellin kommunistisenvastainen sanoma ja maailmankuva eläinten pyörittämästä farmista on toki hien"
