“Wow! 18 years of nothing and now twice in one day. What a place!”
A glowing green ball of evil affects all those across the galaxy who come across its path.
Genres, Themes, Actors, and Directors:
- Animated Features
- Episodic Films
- Science Fiction
Based on the American comic magazine of the same name, this animated sci-fi film (kept out of video circulation for years given music licensing issues) has a cult following, but is most definitely not for all tastes. In fact, given the ample presence of cartoonish violence, over-sized bosoms, and gratuitous sex, its target demographic seems to be exclusively horny teenage geek-boys. None of the episodic vignettes are especially noteworthy or memorable, and the animation itself — despite being the result of “1,000 artists working in five cities simultaneously” — looks pretty much like what you’d see on Saturday morning television. Feel free to skip this one.
Redeeming Qualities and Moments:
- Occasional snippets of reasonably impressive animation
No, though I’m slightly torn, given its undeniable cult status.
