Genius Party Beyond – Moondrive

by Gunther Heinrich, 19 Aug 2009 in Anime Reviews

Take the average internet geek and you get something like this: Stupidity + Coolness – Money.

It’s hilarious that Moondrive – a short movie of the anime anthology Genius Party Beyond – accidentally exploits just this prototype to tell its hilarious story which follows a bunch of bankrupt thieves on their hunt for a treasure. Nevertheless I can safely state that Moondrive is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. This includes movies, by the way. It has tons of cool moments, interesting characters and style wherever you look. Admitted, the characters turn out to be a little bit flat but since this is a short movie that completely goes for “style” I can accept that. If you haven’t seen Moondrive or Genius Party Beyond, do it now. It’s only about twenty minutes long so you cannot say you ruined too much of your life afterwards.

So, and now let’s take a closer look at the best moments of Moondrive with an absolute disregard of spoilers (therefore the red flag on the left side of the title if you’re on this site and not using feed reader. This post was the reason I implemented all this technical AJAX stuff).

Yay for true, unstoppable creativity!!! Hollywood finally hit the eternal heights of creativity from which they cannot be thrown down anymore. They’ve done it. Seriously. Because….fasten your seatbelts…because they have decided to make a movie out of a bubblegum comic called Bazooka Joe.

Made for those moments

Sometimes it is amazing what you can experience in a movie theater.

Many times I remember more that happened besides the movie than the movie itself. In fact this happens most of the time (which is no good sign for the industry). The whole experience of an evening you spend with your friends in a building constructed solely for that purpose is something you never can truly recreate in your home.

And besides the whole atmosphere there are sometimes moments which are simply crazily funny. It’s like watching THE TOWERING INFERNO in a skyscraper at night – alone.

90 seconds you will never forget

Even the Chinese dictatorship cannot prevent bad taste. Or they simply don’t care as long as it’s about love.

Either way: thanks to their We-Don’t-Care-attitude you can now watch an epic Chinese love song you have never seen before. Be warned, though: I cannot guarantee your safety:
