Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle Reviews
The re imagining of Yoda as a boglin whose first lesson on using the force is "You must touch your tongue to mine" is brilliant.
Film with a lot of effort and detail put into the models, "thumbs," and other goofy devices but not enough devoted towards humor or entertaining the audience (at least not for quasi-intellectual people).
"Oh, don't try to scare us with your ooby-dooby magic talk, Helmet Man. Your I'm a horrifying warlock and I'm going to get you with my mystic potions talk SICKENS me! I LAUGH at you and your I'm a frightening wizard threat of hostility. Why don't you gather some frog legs, and eyes of a newt, and conjur up a potion that will get you your FACE back, and perhaps make you one mere ounce less PATHETIC than you truly ARE!"
If you can laugh at the fact that the characters are all thumbs for almost a half an hour, then go ahead and watch it. Everyone else can go watch a good STAR WARS parody.
"All right, you thumbs, listen up. A one-armed man killed my wife Sabrina, a working girl. And now I'm a Fugitive and in Clear and Present Danger. I should be Presumed Innocent, but they're playing Patriot Games with me; Raiders, Regarding Henry, Blade Runner and Air Force One."
"I'm sorry, what was that last part?"
