The Rotoscopers are together for their very first live video show with a discussion and review of the critically acclaimed Aardman Animations stop-motion film Shaun the Sheep Movie.

Highlights

  • Main Discussion: Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015)
  • It did very poorly at the U.S. box office despite being critically acclaimed. Why do you think that happened?
  • No dialogue! Makes the other elements of the film (visuals, comedy, score) step up.
  • No need to be a Shaun the Sheep TV viewer to jump right into this film!
  • Amnesia in films. A common trope to create drama and tension.
  • The dog catcher is probably just a former cop who was let go from the squad.
  • It isn’t a pet movie with a trip to the dog pound.
  • The Farmer’s social media/viral rise to stardom as a celebrity hairstylist.
  • Chelsea enlightens us on what a “classy fart joke” is.
  • What makes Shaun the Sheep Movie so great: Shuan, dumb sheep herd, filthy party pigs, and the adorable baby sheep Timmy.
  • We rate it!
  • Voicemail: Sarah
  • Don’t forget to use the hashtags #AnimAddicts and #AnimAddicts101 when talking about this episode on Twitter!
