Projector: Shaun the Sheep Movie / Trash – Film Brain

Film Brain’s on the run, keeping up with Shaun the Sheep and his flock as Aardman takes their adventures to the big city, as well as group of kids in Rio de Janeiro who unlock corruption in the new film from Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry.

About Film Brain

"Bad Movie Beatdown" takes a look at the very worst that Hollywood has to offer with commentary and analysis. "Projector" is reviews of current UK releases that have yet to open in the US. There may also be some commentaries and other material.

  1. I don’t think “Shaun the Sheep” will get a wide release in the United States because of the lack dialogue. The distributors would feel(unfortunately rightly so) that the “General Public” wouldn’t be able to get into a movie sans dialogue.

    • I don’t think so. The visuals are expressive and interesting enough. I would ask if americans know the character, instead.

      • Isn’t that reasoning Grump gave why The Thief and the Cobbler got terribly recut and they hired Matthew Broderick to never shut up throughout it?

      • He referee more to fact corporations in States are retarded, and dismiss great work for stupid reasons pushing in this same time complete trash. Shown is great show though and it should be recognized.

  2. Oh! I Agree with everything!

  3. Wall-e had very little dialog until they got on the ship, but even then it still had little dialog.

  4. Both of these movies sound pretty good.

    I’ll keep my eyes peeled for them over here.

  5. Guess I’ll have to see Trash when it comes out in the US. Most likely drag my brothers to see it as well; does anyone think it will traumatize my little brother?

    • The abduction by police/seatbelt scene is the strongest bit in the movie, but it’s borderline. Contains roughly 5 f-words, all subtitled. Most younger teens should be able to handle it.

      • Good to know I can drag both of them then. Thanks for the info! (And I totally didn’t just stare at my screen for a good ten-fifteen minutes in shock that the person who answered is you.)

  6. Haven’t watched Projector in a while. But today’s Shaun the Sheep required a watch.

  7. Sounds like a good couple of movies. It’s a shame that having the five f-words will restrict Trash to an R-rating in the US. They’ll probsbly do what they did with The Kings Speech and just subtitle them as something else to get past the radar on that one.

  8. I saw this a couple weeks ago, it’s fantastic.
