An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
An action epic that explores the origins of Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad, better known as the Aqua Teen Hunger Force, who somehow become pitted in a battle over an immortal piece of exercise equipment.
"Beforel Orel: Trust" is a 25-minute animated short film directed by Duke Johnson and written by Dino Stamatopoulos. Johnson has made Anomalisa this year, which is one of the most talked-about animated films with dark horse chances at the Oscars. However, this film from 3 years ago is truly disappointing. First of all, the animation isn't great. I also don't like the style, but that is just personal preference. However, from the way it looks, it could also be a 1990s movie. Apart from that, the characters are not too interesting, pretty much impossible to identify with and as a consequence, the story isn't memorable either. But the worst thing about this little movie here is the anti-God propaganda. The problem is not that the boy is questioning religion, that is perfectly fine, but all the religious people are shown as stupid, one-dimensional dumbnuts who cannot hold a conversation or an argument with a 10-year-old. I have no idea what the makers were thinking, but this was truly embarrassing to watch. Not recommended. I hope this was mostly Stamatopoulos' fault and Johnson's next works will not be affected as he seems to be on the verge of breakthrough.
