A must watch comedy from ShadowMachine! (by salmanzazabacagmod)
Ahh Yes, Shadow Machine has done it again. First was the instant success of Robot Chicken, and now their first Movie should be a box office hit, but today when i watched Hell and Back, I was the only one in the room. Never mind the total absence of people, the movie was extremely funny. The voice acting was spot on, The sound and backgrounds were perfect. Every single character in the movie was actually relevant to the plot, that's a bonus. If i had to say type , a bad thing about the move, I noticed the lip-syncing was off by a bit, sometimes, But overall, I HIGHLY recommend you watch <more>
Hell and Back! I know it's a stop-motion movie, most people want actors, real-life places and realism, but we all love Robot Chicken, so basically Hell and Back is a extended, well-written episode.
I found it to be an original idea, the humour was bother messed up and brilliantly funny. The dialogue flowed wonderfully. I truly enjoyed this movie. I loved the animation, the detail to the background, the voice acting. One of the best comedies I've seen in a long time. I highly suggest watching this!
A Lampooned Campy Cult Film (by jrmeltonii)
I have never written a review on this website or published one on any website or forum ever before. But I watched this film because I was bored, and it's cold and frosty where I'm at right now. The first ten minutes of the film were very off putting. I found myself thinking "Yeah, I'd need a quarter of weed to watch this and get any value out of it". But I didn't have anything better to do so I figured I'd might as well give it a chance. I am glad I gave it that chance. It only has an aggregated score of 5.3 on this website, and I can see why. This is the type of <more>
film that came out 2 generations too late. If it had been released when my Dad was not quite my age, along with animations like "Fritz The Cat", it would have developed a cult following. It might very well do so. It has incredibly crude humour. Any expectations of subtlety should be eschewed before perusal of this flick. Orpheus, the Greek artists/poet/singer/bard/etc. is featured, and it is referenced that he is anally raped by a sentient tree at a young age in the woods of what I assume to be either Greece or Hell which would be paradoxical . This film is a relief from 99 percent of the crap that theaters are releasing nowadays and it's equally refreshing in that you can take it at face value. To sum it up: search up "Mourning Wood performed by Orpheus", on YouTube. It's the link of him singing a song from his experience. If you like it, you'll probably like the movie. If not, you won't. It's like Crawdaddies, you love em, or you hate em. 9/10. Refreshing.
This is a highly underrated film! Pros: hilarious dialogue, gorgeous clay animation, a strong attention to detail, and fun vibe. Cons: the humor will not be for everyone, you really have to have an open mind to intentionally offensive comedy. I love that it is a mix of high brow and low brow comedy. You have semen jokes immediately following an obscure Greek mythology snide. The demons especially Pena and Nanjiani and Odenkirk's devil absolutely make this film. Their attitudes to working in hell combined with clever one-liners play very well to the right audience. There is a lot more to <more>
appreciate to this film than what is above surface. I call it the funniest, most original comedy I have seen in years! My favorite piece of the film is the atmosphere. Give it a half chance. I consider this smart people making a dumb comedy for smart people. I also have not seen such beautiful and painstakingly detailed claymation since Nightmare Before Christmas. I wish I could compare it to another film, but I really can't. 10× better and more original than Sausage Party. Sorry for any typos, typed this on my phone. Bottom line: some very talented, very funny and very dedicated people made this film and clearly enjoyed making it, you should watch it and if you don't appreciate the story, appreciate the zany world, voice acting, quotable lines welcome to hell and incredibly detailed claymation atmosphere. Phew.
