Igor

Rock! Shock! Pop!
18 September 2011
  • Summary: While the Blu-ray release is a little light on extra features, the transfer and the DTS-HD mix are top notch. As to the movie itself? It’s a fun, family friendly monster movie that wears its heart plainly on its sleeve. While it may not be a modern classic, it’s certainly an entertaining and stylishly spooky effort for kids of all ages.

  • Excerpt: Pixar has set the basic standard for feature length computer generated films, starting with “Toy Story” (1995) with a combination of great storytelling and CG effects that created a basic feel for computer generated movies. Very separate from traditional hand drawn animation, CG films rely as much on funding, production values and computing power as artistic ability of the creators as you can see just how far CG effects have come from some of the original CG features...

  • Conclusion: 'Igor' is an interesting animated film, one with an enjoyably skewed sensibility and some memorable characters. Is it truly top-flight CGI? No. But cute enough. This Blu-ray has nice video and audio and a slim, if decent, package of extras. 'Igor' on Blu-ray is worth a rent, but definitely sample before you buy.

  • Excerpt: Determined to prove he can create his own diabolical invention; a mad scientist's nice-guy assistant Igor creates a female Franken-monster. But his creation, Eva, is sweet and sings show tunes! That is, until she falls into the clutches of Dr. Schadenfreude (Eddie Izzard) and his shape-shifting girlfriend. Now it's up to Igor and his sidekicks to save Eva - and their country - from real evildoers, including sneaky Prince Malpert.

  • Summary: What a menagerie of mayhem-loving monstrosities! If there is an almost-sure-thing in Hollywood, it's computer-generated animated children's fare. If it weren't for the deluge of superhero films, no doubt this first decade of the 21st century would be remembered cinematically primarily for the influx of popular and spectacular animated fare, with films like Wall●E , Ice Age , and Shrek leading the charge.

  • Excerpt: Igor has all the makings of a biting, sarcastic masterpiece. Its animated sets are dreary and bleak. Its dialogue is jaded and clever. Unfortunately, it realizes a few foolish, gangster-wannabe adolescents might get the wrong idea and deteriorates from original Willy Wonka-like magic to second rate Sleeping Beauty imitation. Don’t fault John Cusack. Don’t fault Steve Buscemi. Fault a broken studio system which encourages compromise and easily-digested happy endings.

  • Excerpt: Like the monster at its heart, the new CGI film Igor feels like a patchwork creature pulled together from a variety of sources. The character design, palette, and sensibility come from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride . The protagonist looks like from Disney's Hunchback Of Notre Dame, down to the football-shaped head, unruly thatch of hair, bulgy eyes, and protruding ears. The cheery-creepy-crackpot tone is reminiscent of Invader Zim .
