Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three, and he's heading on an epic adventure across the seasons. Will he get back to his family in time for Christmas?
'Weekends' is the story of a young boy shuffling between the homes of his recently divorced parents. Surreal dream-like moments mix with the domestic realities of a broken up family in this hand animated film set in 1980's Toronto.
Based on the much-loved children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, Revolting Rhymes takes the classic fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, then mixes them together and serves them with a mischievous twist.
In Dahl's book, the stories of Snow White and Red Riding Hood stand alone rather than overlap as they do in this film. The bridging device of the wolf telling the stories to the babysitter is also a new invention for the film. See more »
'REVOLTING RHYMES': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A 29-minute animated short film in which the wolf from 'Little Red Riding Hood' tells his version of that famous fairy tale, as well as other takes on other classic fairy tales, involving other characters from that world (like Snow White and Cinderella). It was directed and written by Jan Lachauer and Jakob Schuh, and it's based on the popular rhymes written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake. I found this short film (at 30-minutes) to be way too long and boring. It kind of ruins the whole 2018 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts viewing experience, in my opinion! There's usually at least one short (every year) that does though. I like the concept for the film, but I didn't find it to be amusing, or entertaining, in the slightest though.
