Not a bad concept but it seems to go on for too long., 6 March 2010
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

When this short begins, you might think you're watching the wrong film. That's because although it was made in 2000, the film makers deliberately made the film look old--in black & white, with lines and streaks across the picture and a style that look old fashioned--and very simply drawn.

The film is about some primordial creatures--the Moschops. The looked very dinosaur-like and it's almost like a documentary in which the animals themselves narrate--telling what they're doing and thinking. Their thinking seems a bit too sophisticated and human for such dumb beasts. You see them fight, poop, eat, die, have sex and the like as they tell their inner-most thoughts. All in all, the creatures actually come off as rather annoying after a bit. Not a bad concept, but it just goes on too long.
