Heavy Metal (hereinafter referred to as Heavy Metal) is quite bright and multifaceted phenomenon. Having originated as a musical direction from hard rock in the early and mid-1970s, over time the term pulled in a series of adult comics, and then several full-length animated films that combined comic book drawings and rock music tunes. It's worth noting that the animated almanac that came out in 1981, based on three paper graphic novels, turned out to be a rare tasty thing. Sure enough, because one of the artists of this style feast was listed as Luis Royo, a prominent figure in the industry of graphic eroticism, seasoned fantasy motifs. That's the main character in today's column.

The plot of this animated comic revolves around a mysterious entity Loc-Nar, which the authors presented in the form of a green sphere, endowed with reason and expressing all the evil in the world. There is a suspicion that it was not made a toroid only because of fear of Tolkien's heirs. As befits an absolute evil, the Loc-Nar suffers from boredom, and so has conversations about what was, what will be, and how the heart can rest. As a result, we are rolled out 7 (not counting the extravaganza intro) independent stories conventionally united by this green muck. And, just like the original magazine, Heavy Metal has a fantasy-science direction. It is this kaleidoscope of various fantasy genres that makes this animated film unremarkable.

One by one, different worlds with their big and small triumphs and tragedies appear before us. There's a New York City of the future with militant cab drivers, clearly carried over into Besson's The 5th Element, a space station serving as an interstellar prison, drug-sniffing hippie aliens and savage primitive tribes vying for power, an enchanting warrioress Tarna with minimal clothing and a graveyard of dead planes. There is no Neverwhere Land, whose expanse should have been ringed out by a Pink Floyd composition. Alas, the year 1981 was strictly tied up with the time-limit of the pictures, that's why the authors couldn't allow themselves more than an hour and a half, so they had to leave something out.

The collection, of course, turned out to be quite uneven. If the stories made in the genre of science fiction, looking great, then the fantasy elements sag openly. Obviously, this is due to the fact that in the fabulous field at the time the tape had worthy competitors. One "Fire and Ice" Bakshi stands alone. But the field of non-fiction remained insufficiently plowed. "Soft Landing," in which the Corvette flies through the atmospheric layers and lands on the ground, "B-17" with its zombie pilots and, of course, "Gary Canyon," drawing the Big Apple trash before us - these stories seem to have come off the covers of '80s magazines. Think back to that era's "Youth Tech," and then you can fully imagine the stylistic chic that the animators showed us. Add to that the names of bands like Sammy Hagar, Riggs, Devo, Cheap Trick, Don Felder, Donald Fagen, Nazareth, Journey, Grand Funk Railroad, Black Sabbath. Hey, aren't you still looking for somewhere to swipe all that goodness?

And then there was the oddly perceptive, but logically justified by the not insignificant box office returns animated burp under the laconic title "Heavy Metal 2000". The magazine's new owner, Kevin Eastman, mistakenly thought that the main success of the animated "Heavy Metal" came from the naked parts of women's bodies and the rousing heavy metal music using wild guitar riffs. Of course, he was right, but only partially. The first "Heavy Metal" was grabbing you by the throat with its stylistic madness. It had no really structured plot, but was more like a video magazine, a little funny in places, a little boring and a little shocking. And even if it looked like a set of cliches, however, as practice has shown, a set of 15-minute cliches wins over a protracted half-hour cliché. As a result, a kind of remake of the Tarna story was spit out on the screens. Personified evil, the last of a kind, divine energy, world domination, a treacherous guardian - well, that's twenty-five again. Long, tedious, and with crooked graphics outdated by ten years.

Of course, the box-office failure of "Heavy Metal 2000" diminished the craft zeal of the production company, but it was not enough to bury the idea of the film adaptation of another comic book magazine forever. As Paramount Pictures promises, the new "Heavy Metal" will be released in 2012. It will consist of nine different novellas, and therefore, if the producers are not chasing after the super profits from the "fashionable and popularly beloved" 3D, there is a chance that the patient will still come out of dementia.
