A good movie

2 years, 1 month 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

Description: This film is an animated adaptation of George Orwell's classic satire on Stalinism. Under the direction of the pigs, the barnyard animals who are tired of their cruel master band together and take over the farm by means of a revolutionary coup. They eventually discover, however, that although all animals are supposed to be equal, some are more equal than others... Despite an upbeat ending which is not wholly faithful to the source material, the flavor of the novel remains intact. The stinging satire is there, the political parallels are there, but a certain entertainment value is present in the film that Orwell purposely exclude ... (more)

My movie year 2016 (88 movies items)

"21.1. (PC/YouTube) Olen kuullut huhuja, että CIA olisi rahoittanut animaatioversion Eläinten vallankumouksesta. En nyt jaksa selvittää asiaa enempää, mutta aika typerä päätöshän tuo olisi ollut - Orwellin novellia hyvin tarkasti noudatteleva piirretty on erityisen tärkeä varsinkin sosialisteille, jotta ympäri mualimaa aina itäblokista Pohjois-Koreaan tehdyt virheet rakkaaseen johtajaan luottamisen osalta osattaisiin välttää. Oikeistohan nyt näkee punaiset demoneina vaikka ruu"

100 Greatest Animated Features (100 movies items)

"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 "

"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 A near-perfect Orwell adaptation is the first graphic, bleak outlined non-Disney animated feature, played almost like an audio book on film, that features strong anti-Communist West/anti-NWO themes. "

"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"
