“Thor: Ragnarck”, but as an anime intro .::. We all love Marvel’s flicks, but anime mashups are better. Speed Factor (SF): 9/10.

ご苦労様 – Gokurōsama .::. When an elderly bentos shop owner suffers a back problem during her morning routine, a young assistant tries to help by bringing her to a chiropractor a few floors above. Simple enough, right? Nope. A no dialogue, lighthearted animated short from the 2016 graduating class of MOPA. SF: 4, but you won’t mind.

9 Ways To Draw a Person .::. A mix of abstraction, collage and drawing technics that’s hands down the best animated short I’ve watched this year. SF: 6/7/8, depending on the mood.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Line Rider edition) .::. Line Rider was an internet phenomenon back in 2006, but for some reason still kicks ass. Also check Hall of the Mountain King. SF: Tchaikovsky.

Uncharted .::. A live action fan film featuring Nathan Fillion? Hell, yeah. SF: 8.

Cinema Space Tribute .::. Combining the lyrics of Dylan Thomas “Do not go gentle into that good night” (read by Anthony Hopkins) with a bunch of sci-fi classic movies. SF: from 3 to 7, in crescendo.

30 years of my life in 30 seconds .::. Russian cartoonist Lazy Square, specialized in ads, is my newest favourite addiction. Don’t miss The Office/NASA and Terminator 2 and a half. SF: 30.

Say It Ain’t My Mind .::. Seattle band Tiger Rider performs a mashup of Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” and Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”, live from a basement. SF: NaN.
