Todayâ€™s Movie Monday features the work of Three Legged Legs. What is Three Legged Legs, you ask? Well, itâ€™s â€œa hillbilly with stinky hobbit feet, an angry brown guy freaking out all the time, and a guy who likes wearing collared shirts under regular cotton t-shirtsâ€.
The first film is a shorty but a goodie. Humans!, a 60 second global awareness PSA â€œsensationalizing the excessive, all-consuming nature of the human beingâ€, shows the Earthâ€™s â€œutter demise in a fun and sickening kind of wayâ€.
The next â€œanimated fableâ€, Samurai, was a collaboration between TLL and GE for their Imagination Theater campaign. â€œItâ€™s a tale of a pint-sized samurai faced with a seemingly impossible challenge as proposed by a behemoth Emperor and his wicked minions. Can you spot all the ninjas?â€.
Their next short, Los Angeles Lets Be Friends, â€œdepicts friendly monsters overrunning Los Angeles to spread joy and beauty throughout an otherwise drab and monochromatic society. Despite the creaturesâ€™ best efforts, the public isnâ€™t swayedâ€.
Finally, Ricochet, a short â€œfeatured primarily as a visual effects showcaseâ€, that â€œputs the viewer in the middle of an all out battle between two disparate armies set in an apocalyptic near-future environmentâ€. Be warned though, this one gets violent.
Bonus: If that didnâ€™t satisfy your movie appetite for the day, be sure to check out YouTubeâ€™s 2006 Video Awards Winners. Youâ€™ve probably seen most of them already, but maybe you missed one or two, so itâ€™s always good to go back.
