“There were a lot of great moments in the movie, I love that Vasquez held onto a good amount of his humor as the years have wore on, Iu0026#39;m sure many things have changed for him as has the world u0026amp; culture around him, so it inspires me to see the unique expression of all the bizarreness u0026amp; absurdity in a time that has largely departed from this style of humor u0026amp; show.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI enjoyed the movie u0026amp; I would recommend it, it really punches you in the nostalgia bags u0026amp; gives a lot of good laughs.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI only have a few small gripes about the movie, having been a huge fan of the original series.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie departs a bit from the vibes of the original series, for whatever reason. For one, the movie exhibited a lighter atmosphere, I understand that perhaps the production assumed that the audience has changed and was afraid to alienate their audience, but Invader Zim was great in large part because its irreverence, many great art pieces are great because theyu0026#39;re bold u0026amp; actually defy peopleu0026#39;s expectations. There was never a good comedian who only said what was socially acceptable, and thatu0026#39;s why it brings me some sense of sorrow to see Zim made less intense, diminishing near the first point of contention, even Dib u0026amp; his family having obscenely u0026#39;normalu0026#39; moments. Gaz is not someone pretending not to care about her brother, being annoyed with him, u0026amp; looking for ways to injure him, but in the movie she is, and Dibu0026#39;s dad doesnu0026#39;t really care that much about him, heu0026#39;s actually consumed by his passion for science to a fault, except in the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe power u0026amp; intensity of the individuals are diminished in the movie, the nature of their reality is toned down perhaps to tailor to more modern audiences, there is less darkness u0026amp; ugliness, less witty, repulsive, absurd, nihilistic, subtle commentary, u0026amp; more silly, apprehensive humor that pulls too many punches.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would gladly watch a remake because I still love the humor when it hits right u0026amp; the remnants of the original atmosphere they kept, but that doesnu0026#39;t change the fact that the movie could have beennbetter if it was significantly more authentic u0026amp; daring.”
