Unicorn Wars

2022 / 92m - Spain
Fantasy, Mystery - Animation

From the director of Birdboy comes another dark, wacky animation. Vázquez has a unique vision and delivers dark fantasy like no one else. I can't say everything worked equally well for me, but there are moments of sheer brilliance here, and with a little more fine-tuning I could see him making a true gem.

The teddy bears are at war with the unicorns. They believe the unicorns have taken over the magical forest, and they want to end their reign. Gordi is a gentle little bear who only wants peace, but he is forced to join the army. His brother, who is the complete opposite of Gordi, makes his life even harder.

The art style is a little simplistic, but there is certainly beauty there. The soundtrack on the other hand is outstanding and elevates the film whenever it is put front and center. The dub could've been better and the mix of cute and dark doesn't quite work, but it's a unique film that is hard to compare with anything out there. Recommended for fans of animation.

Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Fantasy, Horror - Animation

A stylish and surprisingly dark animation that has a lot to offer. The art style is amazing, the characters are intruiging and its universe is a treat to explore. But the animation itself and the visual direction are a little too bland for a film of this calibre. It's definitely a film you'd want to see if you're an animation fan, but the film's potential isn't used to its fullest.
