    • @Holsapple Studios Akif Pirinçci the writer of the 'Felidae' novel on witch the movie is based is an anti-islamic racist. I don't think saber will promote that movie. I like the movie and the novel but the person behind is an idiot. Same problem like with Jon Schaffer, good musician but wrong in the head.

  • I just noticed the bikers are wearing the attire of indigenous Sami people. They could be Sami people or Russian gangsters posing as Sami since they work in the circus and circuses are scammers. I am not sure if that's the case but I heard Norway has a problem with Sami based bigotry there so those characters are based on that but I'm not sure. Someone please clarify.

    • The bikers were members of the Sami mafia (not real) working for the Russian mafia, and they were originally hired by them to go after Roy Arnie for the drugs. However, they scrap their mission to take the drugs for themselves And yes, working for the Sami rights have been a major thing in Norway, and I also think the portrayal is meant to be a satire of people from Northern-Norway in general (even though not all Sami are from that region) basically acting like their own country and having a love-hate relationship with people from the South

  • I really hate when people hold all movies to the same standard as the "paragon" when that's not what they're supposed to be. As you said, Pixar couldn't really do something like this with their current image, and I completely agree with your assessment of this. The creators were using an "anti-aesthetic" of sorts. Just in the clips you showed, you could see how miserable and abused poor Jimmy was, and how even the "good" people just wanted him for their own selfish ends. There were no heroes in this movie, and that's a powerful statement about what reality often is.

  • What is missed here is that Christopher Nielsen's borther, Joachim "Jokke" Nielsen, was (and still is) a famous music artist in Norway, and even somewhat recently (2006) got a street named after him. It's not unthinkable that Christopher, watching from the sidelines, observed that those around Jokke were more concerned with his music career than his wellbeing. Jokke died in 2000 due to a heroin overdose. For those familiar with the background, there can be no doubt that the elephant Jimmy represents Christopher's dead brother, and while death is hardly a happy ending, the sad reality is that it could hardly have gone any other way. This also puts into perspective the rockslide, denying everyone any chance of using what remains for financial gain.

  • Yay I'm glad you liked the movie! I remember watching it when I was younger and it was pretty dark for me. I'm also more used to the art style, since for some reason Norway comics are often dark and either satirical, at least older ones. I hope you were able to also listen for a bit to the Norwegian dub, since the hunters are Trøndere (from the region of Trøndelag), and a running gag was that the big one is called "Hold the glasses" because he always makes the others hold his glasses right before he does some shit. XD I dunno why I always thought that was funny. I wanna rewatch this movie with the English voices now. Not sure if there was a dub back when I saw it. Thanks for the video on it! And you look nice with whatever hair I see you with to be honest. Whenever you come on camera, you're always put together. Somehow! But you never look like your avatar so it always takes me a hot second. "Wait, why is Saber's voice coming out of this guy? He's not even wearing an orange shirt!"

  • Finally decided to watch the english version. Yeah, it's not as good. Much of the original's humor comed from the diverse dialects. That became a hit or miss when localized into english. Worst of all is the scene with the american tourists. Without the language barrier(with the stonerss off course speaking norwegian), most of the humor disappears. Then there is the cultural jokes. How can find a sami/lap mafia on motorbikes funny, if you don't know who they are? For americans, try imagening a native american mafia, with sterio typical imagery like big featherhats and redface theme on theirself and bikes, while playing a rock version of some traditional native american song. Then you should get close to how hillaruis, and slightly racist, the mafia in this movie is.

It's like an animated-ish mature movie (it contains a crap-top of swearing and if I remember correctly quite some gore) I watched it long ago (like a year or so ago), but from what I remember it was messed up, but actually kind of good? But if it turns out bad, don't blame me, I just remember enjoying it overall.

  • I would argue that the "unpolished" nature was entirely intentional, and was evident through the design decisions of the creator's original work, and the shot selection and editing in even the short clips you shared showed alot. But while "unpolished" artistic live action is praised by many critics, when it comes to animation they may as well just be blind to it. Of course, its about 100x harder to do with animation as well. And people love the kitsch shit that comes out of Pixar, and continue the "animation is for children" problem the whole industry has had since CCA came in and forced it into there with moral authority (also including pretty much all of the visual arts - its either overly pretentious or for children).
