A major let-down!
14 August 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was a huge fan of the first Animation Show disk, so I was sure to see this second collection. However, I was very disappointed because the films just weren't very funny--as they tended towards "arsty-fartsy" films that just made my head hurt.

One of the biggest disappointments was the virtual absence of Don Hertzfeldt's cartoons throughout the DVD--only having the bizarre and not particularly good MEANING OF LIFE. Likewise, PAN WITH US and MAGDA were too artsy and I disliked them. Fortunately, WARD 13 was a sick and twisted and funny film and the rest of the films were adequate.

Fortunately, THE ANIMATION SHOW does get much better with Volume Three. Three is NOT funny like one, but features much more amazing and mind-blowing films--and one of my all-time favorites, the unsavory and cool RABBIT.
