The War of the Worlds (1953) dir. Byron Haskin. The original and greatest alien invasion film. The sense of doom pervading the film is equalled by the mystery surrounding the Martians. Delicious Technicolor cinematography and fantastic special effects.

Robin Williams as Ray D. Tuto, King of the Moon in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1989) Directed by Terry Gilliam. One of my favorite movies of all time. Robin Williams was definitely a part of what made it so fun.

Heavy Metal (1980) rought cut. Storyboards and layouts. (The first image is from a deleted segment linking the ‘Stern’ segment to ‘B-17’. The second is a storyboard from ‘So Beautiful, So Deadly’ with an alternate character design)
From the rough cut of Heavy Metal (1980) For the flying sequence in the ‘Taarna’ segment, model landscapes were built and filmed with hi con film and then transferred as positive images to cels.

Film reference for rotoscoping used in Heavy Metal (1980). The model was filmed on high contrast film to make it easier for the animators to trace the figure and the costume.
Martin Rosen’s 1978 animated adaptation of Watership Down is available to pre-order from the Criterion Collection’s iTunes channel!
This is huge! Another animated film joining the Collection.
“In this celebrated adaptation of Richard Adams’s classic novel, an offshoot group of rabbits struggle to break from their failing, violent community to form a utopian society. With Watership Down, first-time director Martin Rosen and his team of animators created a dark, beautiful work that blends poetic mysticism and austere realism.”
So excited that they’re finally giving more attention to animation. I hope this leads to more blu-ray releases of Animated films from them.

Also I never realized how many awkward couple moments were in some of the Marx Bros. movies. [At the Circus (1939) Room Service (1938)]

A Night at The Opera (1935) Directed by Sam Wood. One of my all-time favorite comedies. The first Marx Brothers movie made at MGM and the first to employ a compelling plot which would lead the story along.

Today’s the 30th Anniversary of my all time favorite animated film (and one of my all time favorite films in general). Macross: Do You Remember Love? has been influential for me since I first saw it.
