An Extra "Machinery" "Breaking Bad"
20 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't know if you have played "Machinarium" or have you ever seen the "Breaking Bad" TV-series? I think Mr. Hublot is a combination of these two, how? let me tell you, this guy some how is a scrupulous man and as you see in the animation he is very meticulous and precise also he has some kind of obsession about simple normal life issues -for example turning the lights on and off for a distinct number of times-,Maybe he represents the new modern human which does not have enough time for rethinking about his habits. But always there is hope and turning back points. For Mr. Hublot it is when he starts to live with the street dog. He somehow starts to have an iron and robotic feeling and communication with the dog -I call it Machinarium Love-, he starts to see things different from how he saw them before. The spectacular scene is when he turns on the drill and you wonder No man Don't do that, then you see a very interesting and wonderful "Breaking Bad" from Mr. Hublot, That's his very turning point,wow he demolished whole the obsesses he confronted in his life. He destroyed the hollow house he had built and starts to construct a real new one. I enjoyed a lot and I hope you enjoy more.
