Hey, remember the ’80s when coke-snorting space-aliens rode winged dinosaurs and fought naked barbarians with evil crystals that came out of living volcanoes? Well, if you’ve forgotten those heady days you should go see Heavy Metal at it’s midnight screening at the Loft. I can’t say this is a good film, but it is a relic of an innocent time when animation studios still thought that naked grown-ups with swords were fit topics for cartoons. Now, with such high-brow fare as The Lion King and The Little Mermaid polluting our children’s minds, it’s a good idea to go back to our roots and see what drugs, violence and sex looked like when drawn by extremely talented illustrators and projected on a very large screen. Dude. I mean Dude.
