Love in the time of robots

Love Death + Robots is awesome, NSFW, and definitely for mature audiences. My favorite episode is “Zima Blue” followed closely by “Good Hunting” — I’m torn between the two, actually.

And if you’re getting a Heavy Metal vibe from this anthology, well, that’s because Tim Miller and David Fincher were originally planning to collaborate on an omnibus Heavy Metal movie.

“The original idea behind the duo partnering on Heavy Metal came from an early meeting Miller and Fincher had about collaborating in the late ’00s. Miller had been developing a ‘different kind of Heavy Metal’ for a new generation with the sci-fi and fantasy comics magazine’s editor/publisher Kevin Eastman.

“Heavy Metal — with its blend of subversive, cyberpunk, and sometimes pornographic stories featuring monsters, machines, and beautiful women — had had a huge influence on Miller as a child, and had previously been adapted into two cult-favorite feature films (one in 1981 and one in 2000). This new approach to an omnibus film stemmed from Miller’s desire to ‘do animation that wasn’t Hanna-Barbera.’”
