I can't imagine this is going to look all that great - the entire movie is one big optical.

Compared to its predecessors, it should look sharp as a tack. Here, if I'm not mistaken, they got around the contrast/grain jumps by shooting the effects shots in VistaVision then printing it down to 4-perf 35mm like everything else. The earlier mixes of animation and live footage (except TRON, which was partially shot in 65mm) were just 4-perf 35mm negatives combined onto another 4-perf 35mm negative with an optical printer.

Kinda think it's funny that they refer to this as a "cult classic." Pretty big cult.
To be fair, Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a major studio movie, with a huge budget, that had special effects breakthroughs, was made by a director coming off a gigantic hit that was the number one movie of its year, and this movie was the number one movie of its year. That is very similar to movies like Eraserhead, Pink Flamingos, Blood Feast or Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

It doesn't fit in the definition of "cult movie", according to author Danny Peary. The typical Hollywood product has little potential for becoming a cult favourite because it is perceived by everyone in basically the same way. Cult films are born in controversy, in arguments over quality, themes, talent, and other matters. Cultists believe they are among the blessed few who have discovered something in particular films that the average moviegoer and critic have missed - the something that makes the pictures extraordinary. Who Framed Roger Rabbit is certainly a brilliant classic, but a cult movie it is not.

No one seems to have brought this up yet, but why is Bob Hoskins absent from the covers? He's been on every home video release so why now make him absent? Did Disney not want to keep paying his estate for the use of his image anymore?

#2 - "Rain Man" became the biggest grossing movie released in 1988.

Yes, "WFRR" earned more in 1988! ;)

Yeah, I get WFRR confused with Pink Flamingos. Which one is it that has the dog at the end?

Are you being serious? how could you possibly get the two films mixed up with each other.

One is a John Waters masterpiece while the other is the last great live action-animated hybrid movie.
