I just bought this excellent DVD. It’s a short animated film called “Negadon: The Monster From Mars“, and it’s the first 100% CG Monster Movie. A wonderfully crafted tribute to the classic Japanese kaiju films of 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, this amazing film was mostly put together by just one guy who never made a movie before! It has an interesting visual style that goes out of its way to look old and worn out to create a nostalgic feeling, but the animation is excellent with very impressive effects. The DVD also has a lot of extra material about how the film was made.

If you love monster movies or unique animated films, then you gotta check this movie out. I love both, so naturally I really dig Negadon! It’s got a creepy monster, a cool robot, a decent story, and it proves that anyone can create an awesome piece of work if they work hard enough. It rocks!

Check out more about Negadon at the official Negadon website.
