Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I enjoyed it. The music isn't as good as Metalocalypse.Great shots. Bullet time stuff. I'm assuming very sophisticated match move rotoscoping on the 2d stuff where the camera does a lot of vertical movements.
After watching it a couple of times, my only criticism is of the super-clean Disney-fied character designs. There's nothing wrong with the designs, but I would have loved something a bit odder, something not so idealized and beholden to the tried and true. These guys are all a bit too pretty, formulaic and safe for my taste. I would have liked a bit more actual caricature and exaggeration -- but that's a personal taste thing, I suppose.
Something a bit like the Gorillaz designs - but with a bit more grit and muscle to them. I dunno. Just thought of that.
I caught a whiff of Gorillaz ambitions. Their main platform reminds me of a fighting arena in Boombots. The Neverhood's non selling game.
You've hit the nail on the head, Ronnie. Sums up my thoughts exactly.
