Is it good? Is it bad? I guess the answer to that lies squarely with whether or not you grew up with Heavy Metal, or if youโ€™re a thirteen-year-old straight boy. It seemed aimed squarely at the mentality of that particular group โ€“ most of the stories devolve into scenes of random violence and sex. Even the female characters with any kind of agency are scantily clad and frequently used as little... read more

Great designs and animation, sexy and tender and gore at the same time (Taarna swimming naked and then clothing in black and red weather is superb); but the relation between stories is weak and confusing. I would've preferred episodes.

My Top 199 Favorite Horror Movies of All Time (199 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 and fantasy mash-ups, it "

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick and since it was available on Netflix, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be a really decent watch and the damned thing definitely deserves its cult-classic reputation. First of all, it was so refreshing to see an animated feature targeting the adult audience as the vast majority of the genre is mostly focusing on kids, even very young kids usually. Concerning the animation itself, it was an anthology involving several directors so the quality was varying. Still, I really liked the style(s) used which was again really different than what you get in your usual mainstream animated production. Concerning the stories, it did like the fact that they were all linked somehow to the Loc-Nar which prevented the who” read more

"What the fuck was that? Just like the title above, this one is loved for its soundtrack, its guts, its artstyle and its MANLINESS, but it didn't work at all for me. It's an anthology of very different stories with barely any connection between them, the voice acting is awful, and the whole thing is really stupid. Not even the quality of the stories is consistent, some are barely good while others are plain awful. Like I said before, I like dumb fun, but I need a reason to give a fuck about. "
