À la base, je voulais regarder ce film pour un clip d'une toune fucking bonne là! Fake, quand j'ai vu sur wikipédia que c't'canadien, j'ai capoté ben raide. Pis finalement, la conclusion qui attend Heavy Metal, HM = Kyuukyoku no Sex Adventure Kamasutra.

Un vrai chef d'oeuvre ! ^^^^^^

This is a great movie. I found it thanks to the episode in South Park, S12E03 Major Boobage. In retrospect South Park doesn't do this movie justice, the real movie is much better.

The movie contains of 8 short stories that all revolve around a green glowing living ball that according to itself is the embodiment of all evil. Some of the stories are pretty good. They all contain a lot of graphic violence and nudity.

This month is it exactly 30 years ago that it first came out. Considering that i think the graphics are very good. But the best feature of this movie is the soundtrack. This movie was in part made by fans of that genre of music and they seem to know their music. I especially liked the music in the B-17 story.

With all the animation movies lately that try to reach the largest public as possible to maximize profits by making it accessible to everyone its nice to see a movie that goes in another direction and does something different. Even if they did it 30 years ago.
