Fantastic Planet (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on March 19, 2013

I’ve never written a proper review of this movie.  I was going to tonight, but… just not in the mood.  I’m already awake much later than I wanted to be (I have got to work on my time management).  Even though I’ve got time off all week, I don’t want to wake up at noon.  I want to get to sleep at a relatively reasonable hour, and writing a decent, in-depth review — even in my half-assed way — takes time.

So, here’s a crappy review.  Not even a review, really.  Sorry.  I’ve managed to watch this movie roughly every 5 or 6 years ever since high school, and I think it’s time to let it go.  I’ve gotten everything I’m going to get out of it.  I still think it’s a very cool and trippy film, with some thoughtful social/political commentary, intriguing science fiction touches and a bitchin’ score.  The crude animation works for it more than against it, it has a unique and fascinating look.  I’ve just seen it more than enough times, and am always looking for ways to free up space in the DVD rack.  But it will always have a special place in my heart, it was part of my blossoming appreciation for films outside the norm.  Rating: Very Good (85)
