A great film--too bad it's so short.
2 February 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I have seen quite a few films by PES and I must say all of them have two major things in common--various household objects are used is VERY unusual manners using stop-motion AND they are all way too short. Now during the one to two minutes they are on, they are terrific--but still, they are only one or two minute films. Recently, I was surprised that despite the shortness of these films, one ("Guacamole") managed to receive an Oscar nomination! However, "Game Over" (which is probably better than "Guacamole") was not nominated--perhaps it just didn't qualify. Regardless, people who remember the early 80s will love this film, as it takes some old school video games and re-creates them using weird objects--such as sharks' teeth, flowers, candy corn and more. It is a truly innovative style and lots of fun...but too short.
