Trivia

This film was shot with standard 16mm color film stock, which has a TV-Monitor aspect ratio of 4:3 (or 1.33:1). So all VHS and DVD editions that look like they are "pan and scan" are really fullscreen. See more »

Even better than the real thing.
28 April 2003 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

Peter Jackson never seases to amaze me. You give him any tools, and he'll make a great movie with them. Independent of the fact, whether this is a cheap camera and 'actors' who have no idea about acting [example: Bad Taste] or high budget and top technology [example: Lord of the Rings]. Meet the Feebles is another example: he made a masterpiece breaking all the barriers that one would think exist in a musical with puppets.

Meet the Feebles seems to be the next step of Peter's development as a writer and director, with Bad Taste and Braindead being previous steps. The issues that are dealt with in Meet the Feebles, the kind and amount of gore in it, even though there are no actors and nothing looks real, make it an even more shocking production than the previous ones. And yet again you will notice Peter's amazing ability to build up action with a perfect culmination at the end of the movie.

If you are a fan of Peter Jackson and haven't seen this one - do it immediately. You won't regret it.
