''Even when someone has the strength to discard me, my power is not diminished...Someone always finds me.''

A glowing orb terrorizes a young girl with a collection of stories of dark fantasy, eroticism and horror.

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (155 movies items)

"58% Consensus: It's sexist, juvenile and dated but Heavy Metal makes up it's flaws with eye popping animation and a classic, smartly used soundtrack."

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: New York City has turned into a hell hole, and a giant glowing talking ball of death called the Loc-Nar has turned people into bloody thirsty barbarians Years it takes place: 2031 and unknowish"

"19.5. DVD Rewatch, ***½ - **** It's funny how a film filled with heavy metal and sexist portrayals of women (both are things I don't particularly enjoy) makes me want to shout "Awesome!" all the time like a 10-year-old boy."

25 From 81: My Favorite Films Of 1981 (25 movies items)

" One of the most important moments growing up for me as a huge comicbook nerd was the discovery of Heavy Metal, an anthology comic-magazine full of fantasy, futuristic and/or the emergin cyber-punkologic stories that were not restricted by those imposed upon more immature superheroic fare. When the movie came out, even though it lacked the technical strength of more general-audience targeted animated features, in it I saw the potential for the kind of creative diversity & no-holds barred story "

My Top 20 Halloween Favorites: Zombies (20 movies items)

"With the Disneyfication that has swept over the landscape of animated films these days, including those movies that are not under the mouse-earred banner, it's easy to forget that there was a time when the process of animation included experimenting with stories that were geared towards those audiences that were sporting pubic hair in their shorts. Heavy Metal, based on the comic magazine of the same name, was one such experiment. An adult anthology of sci-fi, horror & fantasy mash-ups, it in"

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Fantasies that are gratuitously sexist and Fascist (macho whoring and warmongering), and whose roots reach all the way back to post-hippie paranoia, feed the tangled plot-lines of a movie that... should disappoint even the teenage wet-dreamers. - Derek Adams, Time Out A wildly sophomoric and stupid cartoon celebrating gore, rape and bad music. - Barry Walters, San Francisco Examiner"

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

"A campy animation that perhaps may be too inconsistent for its own good. While its themes were intriguing and some of the animation was cool, nothing was fleshed-out far enough to keep me interested through its duration. Its weighs its dependence on cliché and predictability. All in all, the idea of this film is much cooler than what the final product solidifies. "

"Collection of animated tales centering around a green rock said to be the source of all evil, with a real "killer" heavy metal soundtrack. The movie was so-so, but I think back in 1981 if you were stoned out of your mind this would have been quite the crowd pleaser. Had a definite 17-year-old boy feel to it (every cartoon segment featured some huge-breasted, scantily clad woman getting it on with the "hero", usually a nerdy, physically attractive substitute obviously intended to be a proxy for t"

Worst Nostalgia Critic Reviews (2008-2012) (32 webtv items)

"This was mostly Diamanda Hagan's choice to review that. But the film itself is not really up to NC's alley. Key Negatives: -Boring -Not Enough Material -Not Enough to Make Fun of -Review Unnecessary -Underwhelming "Yay!""
