Love, Death + Robots (Netflix)
i recently watched this and loved it. pretty intense, not for the faint of heart.
"Terrifying creatures, wicked surprises and dark comedy converge in this NSFW anthology of animated stories presented by Tim Miller and David Fincher."
who here has watched it?
if you've watched it, which ones did you enjoy most?
for me it was:
Beyond The Aquila Rift
The Secret War
saw it after a friend recommended it. wasn't too impressed tbh
i recognize that you are a difficult man to impress, mr jj.
that said, did you enjoy any of the stories in the series?
I tried one at random — The Witness, it looks like — and didn't think it was too interesting
Looks like that didn't make wHAT's list
If you had a top choice to watch, or maybe two, what would they be?
yes, for me the witness seemed to be mostly about “let’s find a way to put a chase and lot of nudity in here and have a ‘surprise’ at the end’ without really trying to do anything beyond that
top for me, i’d say zima blue for something chilled out that’s not trying too hard. that one stuck with me. for something visually compelling with some action/violence and gore, maybe sophie’s edge. and maybe lucky 13 for a straight up the middle kinda thing
those in my list were all on the serious side. there were more light-hearted and silly ones like When the Yogurt Took Over and Alternate Histories that were pretty fun
good hunting is an animation of a short story from Ken Liu, who is the translator for three body problem. not his strongest work but still kinda cool i guess
is there a name for the phenomenon where you genuinely enjoy something a lot on your own, but when you attempt to share it with others, and therefore become more analytical and critical, your enjoyment decreases? i get that with music a lot, and i’m having it happen here now too
they’re all short stories from like 7-20 mins long, they’re not life changing. but it was a really unexpected thing to stumble upon in netflix and i really enjoyed it overall, even though when picking it apart there are plenty of obvious flaws
Thanks — I'll give Zima Blue and probably Sophie's Edge a try
Okay, I watched Zima Blue and Sophie's Edge, and I thought both were miles better than the one I'd watched before — if I'd started with one of these, I might've tried more
I noticed both were adaptations of short stories by established sci fi authors, and I think the one I'd seen was just made up by the animation studio, so I'm sure that helped
oh cool! i was wondering. i'm glad you enjoyed them!
