Too short....I wanted MORE!
2 February 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have been going to the theater on a pilgrimage for quite a few years now each January-February to see the annual showings of the Best Animated and Best Live Action Shorts. I am lucky enough to live in one of the few places in the country that shows it each year. Now what I am about to say might offend some, but it seems that compared to most years, this year's crop of animated shorts is not as good as usual. While I liked a few films, I didn't love any of them--and no really memorable film was in the lot (such as a couple recent winners, "Logorama" or "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore"). Now this is not to say not to see them--but none bowled me over, that's for sure.

"Fresh Guacamole" is another film from the stop-motion genius, PES (Adam Pesapane). I've loved his other films. However, a major problem will probably prevent this one from getting the Oscar--it's well under two minutes long!! Most of his films are this short--and it seems that to have a better chance of winning these wonderful films should be a bit longer. Of course, considering the subject matter here (showing a batch of guacamole being made using everyday objects and stop-motion) it would be hard to stretch it out much more. You really SHOULD see this one--and my score of 7 only is due to its length. It is really clever.
