More Stop Frame Animation . It Helps If You've A Sense Of Humour
22 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

By a strange coincidence the last short film I saw was BIG BANG BIG BOOM which was a stop frame animation movie as was this one . MELTDOWN does have its tongue planted firmly in its cheek and is an affectionate homage to both the horror and disaster genres . The idea is simple and that is a diverse range of food stuffs in the fridge find themselves being threatened by an approaching sheet of ice and director Dave Green plays up to the clichés and humorous aspects of the scenario . Some people might be offended that food is being used as an object of fun but it's a reality that the reasons there's so many hungry people in the world has nothing to do with a lack of food but more to do with hungry people being the victims of conflict or of failed economic policies . If anything they are victims of human nature rather than a lack of food . There's also a lack of humour in the human condition which MELTDOWN seeks to address so well done Dave

I was slightly struck that this was an American short film because the two human characters are a bit too broad and stereotypical " Noo York " sounding individuals , so much so I thought they might be parodies of the Eurocentric view of Americans - loud, brash, sarcastic philistines but as it turned out this remains an American film with a quirky sense of humour and remains appreciated by this reviewer
