“Watermelon: A Cautionary Tale” (2018)

This was… strange to say the least. The idea for a good short is there, but something about the execution just feels off. I think part of the problem is that the idea isn’t developed very well. This short is only 2 and a half minutes, which means this entire short is essentially nothing more than a montage. Plus, the animation is simply too rubbery for the slapstick-esque antics to really have a full impact. It’s not really all that funny, and the ending is… just confused. There are a few inventive and creative moments, and this is a relatively short and harmless watch, but there’s not a whole lot in here that actually works enough to warrant a recommendation, even for a film as short as this.
