A pleasant surprise!
15 May 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

From the award-winning Moonbot Studios that made "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" comes a whole new experiential short that really takes into a new way and a noisy but highly enjoyable adventure. I must say that I didn't really know what to expect, despite being only less than 3 minutes I'm still impressed with it's presentation. It's nice to see Mr. Morris Lessmore appear again but this time with a little friend and he seems more interested in movies in this one.

I really liked it's presentation, it's got a lot of good fantasy and it completely ignores the laws of physics and enters in many different likable movies we've had in many years. Although not only is the animation good but I can see that it wanted to give us the idea how the futuristic sound experience can change our views and I am impressed even though I was only able to see it on my laptop and use my earphones but it would be a big pleasure to see it in theaters to feel the glory of Dolby and their creativity.

But anyway it's definitely worth watching, although it was so beautifully done that it makes me wish it were a little longer. And despite no lines at all like the other short featuring Mr. Morris Lessmore the story still delivers.

Is it recommended? Certainly, but I would recommended highly that you put on your headphones or if you can hook it to your own home theater then feel the experience or else you won't feel it's beauty of sound.
