Looks great...

One interesting thing... most of the film was made in VistaVision 8 perf because of all the compositing.

This screenshot shows what the camera looked like:

Industrial Light + Magic constructed a bunch of VV cameras for the Star Wars films, which are still in use today.


March 25 can't come sooner!

(I'm against censorship for this title, but I DO realize that Disney could care less. Since they will likely never allow an uncut version on DVD, I might as well buy it. After all, they gave us the finger when it came to getting uncut editions of Fantasia, Saludas Amigos, Make Mine Music, and Melody Time on DVD. Not to mention the non-OAR titles, either. Here's to The Digital Bits' "Best Studio of 2002"! Posted Image )

Thanks for the review, Ron. This does look like a nice set.

It's a shame I'm going to have to pass on it due to the censorship. It looks like it would be a spectacular release otherwise. Posted Image

[quote] It's plainly evident that Who Framed Roger Rabbit
is nothing short of a cinematic masterpiece. [quote] I couldn't agree more. Great film.

...which I'm ready to buy on DVD as soon as it is released uncensored.

EDIT:

I hope it's ok that I have commented on the censorship issue in this thread. I realize there is another thread going on about this, but this one is more likely to actually be seen by the studio and I feel it is important that they know that some people will not be buying the DVD for this reason.

This is not to suggest that many people will not enjoy this disc in spite of the ommissions and that is obviously a matter of personal choice. I just don't see why both versions could not have been released in order to please everyone.

Great review and I look forward to seeing this movie again, but there are no images showing up for your screencaps. Is it me or is something haywire?

And by the way

Excellent review, Ron! I am going to be buying this one, censorship or no censorship. This is too good of a movie to pass up. I am upset about the trailer not being on there, but I suppose I can live without it. I really like how everything sounds, and I can't wait to pop disc 2 into my DVD player. Damian, I can't see the pictures either. Edit: Actually, just as I got done posting, they showed up.

No pictures here, either. I tried following the link on them too, but got a 404 not found error.

Wonderful review! I am definitely picking this one up on the 25th. As for the reason the images don't work, they are linked to the wrong directory. Instead of /ronsreviews/image.jpg it should be /ronsreviews/covers/image.jpg.

Oh, and I too cannot see the images in your review (tried on IE, Mozilla and Opera).

There was a temporary problem with the pictures.
Everyone should be on the same page now.

[quote] No trailer?

Perhaps you need to look a little harder..

Perhaps you can stop being a tease and tell us
what we should know. No trailer is listed on the
outside specs of the box, nor could I easily find
it through the menu structure.

If it is an EASTER EGG, then shame on Disney! They
shouldn't be hiding such stuff, and frankly, I don't
waste my valuable time looking for such eggs.

Great review Ron, excellent movie. The only time you'll see cartoon legends Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse appear together, is in this movie. Joe Dante is directing a similar sort of film for release this year isn't he? Starring many of the Warner Bros cartoon characters, I'm sure I read it somewhere, hmmm maybe I dreamt it.
