ROSA is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi animated short that was released in 2011. Rosa, a cyborg, is mankind’s last hope for restoration of the Earth’s ecosystem. She awakens in a ruined area and is thrust into a fight or flight situation. She must survive a battle against two other cyborgs or Earth’s hopes will perish with her. This short chronicles that battle.
The animated short is visually engaging and competently done. Jesús Orellana made solid choices with the camera angles and the right choreography. I still haven’t decided whether the visual symbolism wasn’t over the top towards the end of the animation. The short could have benefited from having Rosa’s (and her world’s) back story worked in. As it is, you as the viewer are thrown in mid-story and there’s nothing to hold you there emotionally once it’s done. The short is based on an original story by Orellana.

The fact that the third Ring movie is being released in the winter makes me wary of its quality. We’re talking one of the most iconic horror characters in modern cinematic history, and she’s getting the January (almost) horror-dump treatment. if the film was any good, wouldn’t it have been
In these trying times, what we need most is more Rick and Morty. Unfortunately we still haven’t seen much of Season 3, and what we have seen is still in animatic and storyboard form. The following scene is no different, but it is the longest segment released yet. https://youtu.be/YZY-X6exJNg The
