A Town Called Panic

Holy mackerel. What a great movie! See it right now! It even gets Double Trouble approval. And they don't even speak French or know how to read subtitles!

But it doesn't stop them from calling out "Horse!" "Cowboy!" "Indian!" "Penguin Tractor!"

It's not really worth even getting into what this is about. Ostensibly, the film is about a cowboy and indian who live together with their horse and decide they want to buy some bricks to build a barbeque for the horse's birthday present.

But it also involves a whole host of other absolute craziness. There's the aforementioned penguin. There are these bizarre thieves who hide underwater. There are crazy scientists who like to have their penguin tractor/tank creation throw gigantic snowballs at anything near it.

This is really one of the most fun, most inventive, silliest, strangest, awesomest movies I've seen.

Not to mention - the stop motion animation is perfectly not perfect.

sebastian, dorian and i loved this movie. absolutely insane and insanely inventive. in the midst of all this netflix brouhaha and rate nonsense i must say i never would have known about this film if not for them. it's worth and extra $8 a month for gems like this.
