Manborg is a creative and hilarious love letter to a VHS sub culture. Perhaps it has limited appeal to only those who know what we mean when we refer to a top loader. Perhaps those weened on a diet of CGI will fail to understand the beauty and static grace of stop animation.
Kostanski didn't make Manborg for the masses but he has openly expressed his love of this sub-genre of cinema for everyone to see.
He made Manborg for those of us who lived and breathed it in our youths and it was a welcome trip down memory lane and a rocking good time.
