Manborg Review

Despite forgetting to add in a certain degree of sincerity that 80s and 90s cheeseball replicas need to succeed as comedies, the ultra low budget Manborg from Winnipeg's Astron 6 has enough funny moments and interesting stop motion effects to spare.

TADFF 2011: Manborg Review

Manborg is meant to recreate that VHS tape you once found misplaced in the corner concert film section of a pawn shop. In a world being rapidly flooded with these rehashed nostalgia bombs, Manborg is challenged to represent a new era/aesthetic of re-re-re-rehash, and to be more entertaining than many of the other films in the running. Thankfully for Manborg, it is half man, half cyborg, all Manborg.
