Not sure why it has a low rating

It's a good documentary, but it won't be the greatest thing you'll ever see. Unless you're a die-hard fan of the movie.

None of the voice actors are interviewed, but what more could they say apart from "I was in a studio talking in front of a microphone"?

The filmmakers talk about how it was based on a series of magazines and that the green orb was added in to bring all the stories together.

They explain that they wanted the naked woman to look as busty as possible.

And the green orb is showing all of this to a 10 year old girl, after it brutally murdered her poor father!

They talk about the different animation studios that worked on each segment. It's actually kind of cool having different crews work on different segments.

BBC's Monkey Dust did that as well. (A very adult and quite dark animated sketch show from the 2000's. Non-Brits look that up!)

Ivan Reitman got most of the voice actors from his movies. John Candy recorded his dialogue whilst filming Stripes.

For Tarnaa's dressing scene, a woman was filmed and was rotoscoped later. Other examples are the car in space and the shot of Tarnaa flying over the canyon.

Kevin Eastman, TMNT co-creator is interviewed and says that he got high whilst watching this movie. (Wonder if Michelangelo was based on him....)

Then they said that the film was not released on VHS until '97 due to copyright laws with the soundtrack.

Good doc for those who like the movie.
