Go on, click on that picture and see the full glory of 400 screens of mind-boggling webdesign-fail that is Tumblr.
Not only is this shit unreadable except for the last two comments, it is also almost impossible to find out who said what because THE NAMES ARE NOWHERE NEAR THE FUCKING COMMENTS. How hard can it be to fix this fuckup? But guess if this has been going on for years and years?
I don’t understand why people are still using this trainwreck of a service.
Ächz, das Schlachtvieh wählt weiter besinnungslos die Finanzdiktatur. Zu erwarten und trotzdem deprimierend. Jetzt wollen wir alle unseren Adolf, der uns vor der Krise bewahrt, oder was? Das hat schon damals nicht funktioniert und wird auch jetzt nicht funktionieren, everytime history repeats itself the price goes up and all that.
A boy discovers the strange world of the nightly city and has to overcome his fear of the dark.
The story is good if not too original but this movie is astonishingly beautiful, especially the backgrounds/matte paintings (and the sound design is really good too). Not sure about the character design but I am hard to please in that regard anyway. And I guess it’s a good thing that everybody isn’t as thin as a stick for a change.
The obvious problem with Nocturna is the depiction of female characters. There aren’t any. When I saw the trailer I somehow thought that the Cat Herder was a woman, just imagine: A strong BBW cat-like woman. But alas, he’s a guy. The very few minor (there aren’t any major) female characters – telephone ladies, hair-stylists, stars (yeah, seriously) – are as feminine, cliched and stuck in backward roles as they get. No point for you, Nocturna (obviously no PoC in fairytale land, either).
And I know that this is really over-interpreting it but I think it’s kind of scary having all these creatures who’s only purpose in life seems to be working hard to make humans (only children?) having a good night’s sleep. I hope they at least get paid well.
Nevertheless, it is an entertaining watch and very pleasing to the eye.
