Turntable artist DJ Qbert takes hip-hop into a world where it's never been before in this short computer-animated feature inspired by a track from his album Wave Twisters. In a future world where the "Four Lost Arts of Hip-Hop" -- rapping, DJ scratching, graffiti art, and break dancing -- are being crushed by the minions of the wicked Lord Ook. Honey Drips, The Dental Commander, and Rubbish the Robot are three nomads who believe in the power of hip-hop and spread the word through a strange netherworld called "Inner Space." When Lord Ook learns of the trio's activities, he lets loose the deadly Redworm, a sonic virus that will destroy any beats which cross its path. But the heroic threesome are not about to give up without a fight, and a number of heated battles lead to a final showdown, with Honey, the Commander, and Rubbish giving up the funk with the help of a group of master scratchers. DJ Qbert and the other members of his renowned turntablist crew The Invisbl Skratch Piklz portray the battling scratchers in the movie's climax; sadly, the group disbanded before Wave Twisters could be completed. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

What the....hehehe by RandomEvent December 26, 2004 - 12:32 AM PST

Man, was that awful. But it was so incredibly bizarre it was funny.
I'd already heard some of the music on ChoiceRadios electronica station (mind you ChoiceRadio hasnt changed their playlist in the last 72 years...) but I really didn't expect the complete and utterly bizarre CRAP this show has to offer.
This is the (also discontinued, and more expensive, but probably more worthwhile) CD...

If you don't have anything better to do, or can't seem to get to sleep, here you go.

Great tracks, got to steer away from the visuals by LPavey February 12, 2004 - 5:20 PM PST

Ok Im definitely a fan of hip hop but I think that the visuals were crap on this film. On the flipside Dj Q-bert and his merry men (the scratch pickles) remind you why they are on top of the totem pole of turntablisim. I can see the historic parallels that this draws with the birth and rise of hip hop and its 4 elements making the film albeit informational and discovery channel like towards the end.

So I am torn between the audio (superb) and the visuals (blah),definitely something that you should rent. you can turn off the tv and just listen to it anyway so you can enjoy the film to its fullest and not get pissed off at the visuals.

This one absolutely blew me away. It sparked my interest in real hip-hop (DJ'ing, turntablism, underground hip-hop... whatever you want to call the genre). It's amazing that you can make a coherent film using nothing for a soundtrack but a musical album, but this completely works if you let it. The dialog makes sense--and is hilarious. (turn on the subtitles... they include every hic hic hiccup that dj qbert scratches). No plot synopsis will make sense until you see this, but try to imagine a remake of star wars, except with a dentist instead of luke skywalker, with an infant in a mexican wrestling mask instead of darth vader, and souped up impalas instead of x-wing fighters...
