Um...wow. I'm not even sure what to say after finishing this. Perhaps not the way I wanted to start off the Waste Your Weekend...

Dead Leaves was certainly different. It looked cool I guess, but damn did everything go fast. I feel like I should have watched it in slow motion. I never really look at what things are before I watch them, so this was just not what I was expecting I guess. It was an interesting concept, but I didn't really enjoy it overall.

I hope you had a real DVD (mine is signed by the director :) because this movie needs high bitrate. Then Production IG looks gorgeous as usual and you get the comic book feeling.

Well. I could stand the visuals, but it had too many "face palm" moments in it for my taste.

Am I considered a weird person for actually liking this? It was good in a bizarre way, and well, it was different ^^,

Well, the story was kinda shallow (what would you expect in 47 minutes) but the animation was amazing. Definitely enjoyed it, but I think next time I watch something like this I'll do it without the massive hangover...some of those fight scenes hurt to watch.

Wow. So I really loved this. The humour was a little(!) crude, but it fit well with the frantic style and the anarchic animation. It's been a while since I saw something with such a confident and edgy sense of style. Frankly, it's worth the watch just to stare at in admiration.

4/5, I reckon. I'd say it's definitely something that people really should watch, just for the experience.
