Netflix’s Love, Death and Robots Review


(beeping) (techno music) – [Clint] When Tim
Miller and David Fincher set out to create Love, Death & Robots, Fincher says they just wanted
to make something cool. Mission accomplished. Netfilx’s new anthology
series is the epitome of cool, an ambitious, dazzling,
(bleep)-ed up fever dream that hops between genres
and animation styles to deliver an all-you-can-eat
buffet of weirdness, from sentient yogurt, to ghost
fish, to an alternate history that gleefully reimagines the many ways Hitler could have died. The shorts have no
unified theme or message. Some are dark and nihilistic,
others poetic and hopeful, while some are surreal or openly comedic. But most importantly,
with the use of everything from traditional 2D animation
to photo-real motion capture, no two shorts look the same. With Love, Death & Robots, Miller and Fincher were clearly eager to test the boundaries of the medium and create something
that could never be found in a mainstream multiplex
or an network television. With buckets of gore, copious
nudity, both male and female, and elaborate violence, this is storytelling turned up to 11. Love, Death & Robots has
a broad scope by design. It aspires to explore interesting stories through science fiction,
fantasy, horror, and comedy, with almost every animation
style known to man. While there are some
coincidentally recurring elements, most notably cats and boobs, it would be interesting to see what a more cohesive, focused
collection would look like. Still, this is a smorgasbord
of fascinating stories with extremely compelling visuals. (techno music) Love, Death & Robots is
not immune to the issues that plague most anthologies. Some stories are more repetitive
or derivative than others, but many of the worlds are so fascinating, they’ll inevitably leave you wanting more, as all good short fiction does. This is one visual acid
trip that’s worth taking, even if your mileage may vary. (techno music) (laughing) For more, check out our reviews
of Us and Captain Marvel, and as always, subscribe

    Just finished watching this anthology of films and I must say, it was time well wasted. The visual feast of top-notch art and animation is something I haven't seen together in one place for quite some time. If this was released on Blu-ray along with a collector's art book I would probably pick that up in a heartbeat.

    Awwww, I feel this series deserved a 10/10, it was a collection of animation styles that did not hold back at all with its stories.
    In a time where saying literally anything can get you in massive trouble it's great to see a series where the creators, animators, etc just said "who gives a f**k, let's do this", no regard for who they'd offend or upset, it was a breath of fresh air and an awesome way to show off art styles, animation capabilities and story telling.

    This is part of the reason I love Netflix. They're willing to take risks on some shows and it means we get gorgeous animation and some pretty interesting stories like this.
