Movie Reviews

(4 out of 5 stars)

"As far as value goes, this DVD does not have a lot of content for the price. The English dubbed main video shorts comprise, even when watching each opening and closing (which play before and after each short), only about a half an hour long. The extras push the time closer to the hour mark (though the original NHK shorts that are included have their dubbed audio removed and contain no subtitles), but for the price of the DVD (set at 14.99 MSRP), I would expect a bit more. The domo-textured slip-cover that the DVD comes in is nice, but it doesn't exactly add value to the release.

That aside, Domo, even for casual fans, is fantastically entertaining. I brought this DVD to work to watch during lunch and it was a hit with everyone. Even the people who shook their heads in disbelief still laughed and smiled at the simple and seemingly non sequitur humor.

The stories are clearly designed to appeal to young children, but there is still entertainment value there for everyone, even those in their teens and twenties (or even older). You can watch this DVD with your kids, with your parents, with your friends, with your coworkers; anyone. It's light and comical and just as funny on a second or third viewing as on the first. Each short runs under five minutes, making them easy to watch in short bursts of one or to at a time or plow through all at once.

The stop-motion animation quality is top-notch. This wasn't thrown together to make a quick buck. The Japanese studio that created the original NHK television station spots (where Domo came from) also created the shorts on this DVD.

The opening song, seemingly written for the English language release, is catchy. It's too short to get annoying, even after hearing it a dozen times throughout the DVD, and is easy to learn, as it contains only one word: "domo."

In all, this DVD is worth buying for any hardcore Domo fan. For the casual fan, you might want to find it at a discount, buy it used, or rent it, as the sticker price is a little high for so little content. The front of the DVD claims that this is "volume 1," so we can expect more, probably comparable, releases of Domo in the future as well."
I HAVE seen it, I love it!

"Domo is a sweet all ages type stop action animation.These very short vignettes are sometimes bewildering but always beautifully done. I guess you just have to throw yourself into it. It's Domo's world, we're just passengers.

My family watched this DVD all Christmas and somehow Domo's simple cheerfulness was perfect for the occasion. The animation is gorgeous. Domo eating rice is worth the price alone.

I'm off to fill my house with Domo related items....."
