Not bad being blue
27 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This animation is a fun story. Two brothers work make a team that captures the imagination, national hero of the blue aliens Scorch Supernova always comes in to save the day, with a perfect chin and teeth he is the hero to all. However, he depends on his nerdy brother Gary Supernova who is the brains behind the operation as head of BASA and seems to always be there when he comes a bit short In order to keep his legacy alive, Scorch decides to take a trip to the dark planet, Earth. He does so against his brother's wishes and discovers that it is tough being a hero solo. On earth the super hero falls into the hands of the evil military complex and gets caught up in a web of aliens and the technological slave trade. Directed by Cal Brunker, Escape from Planet Earth captures true, justices, and the toughest force of the universe, brotherly love. Lots of sly references to other space movies for example a Star Trek (1966) reference when in the 7-11, one of the clerks uses the Vulcan salute while hiding under the counter. There also is a scene going through some canyons that remind of the Star Wars seen on the death star. Another need reference is whenever two last names are said in succession, they match up with the names of famous directors, e.g. a Hazmat says: "Peter! Jackson! Detain him!" or "James! Cameron! Don't let him get away!
