6 Scenes We Love From ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the theatrical release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. An innovative co-production between Walt Disney (via Touchstone Pictures) and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment based on the novel “Who Censored Roger Rabbit?” by Gary K. Wolf, the live-action and animation hybrid has already been officially celebrated this year with a commemorative Blu-ray and DVD release hitting stores back in March. But this is the weekend to truly honor both the film and your memory of seeing it for the first time, amazed by the interactions between humans and toons and the mix of real and illustrated props and sets and the idea that you might be turned on by a two-dimensional redhead. Roger Rabbit is not regarded nearly enough these days outside of the reporting of any latest news on its sequel ever actually happening. The Oscar-winning effects don’t astound as much as they did in 1988 (it was one of the

Review: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

  • Comicmix
Every now and then an anniversary comes along and it makes you pause and realize just how much time has passed and how much the world has changed. Twenty-five years ago, the idea of mixing animation and live-action was nothing new, but using computer-enhanced animation was a fresh approach. Then there was the mind-blowing idea of mashing up every animated icon from the golden age of animation. Yes, Disney and Looney Tunes side by side. The Fleischer Studios creations hobnobbing with the others. It had never been attempted before and was cause for celebration.

In the two and a half decades that have passed, Disney’s attempt to turn Gary K. Wolf’s protagonist into a cartoon perennial has petered out. Roger Rabbit was first born in Wolf’s 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? and was turned into a major player thanks to Robert Zemeckis’ ambitious adaptation followed by a

Blu-ray Review: ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ Gets Long Overdue Release

Chicago – When “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” was released 25 years ago, it was a revolutionary critical and commercial smash on its way to four Oscars, including a special Academy Award created just for its amazing technical achievement (live-action and animation may be as common as McDonald’s commercials now but not in 1988). However, not every film from the late ’80s has held up well. In fact, most of them work more as nostalgia than anything else. (Case in point, the recent-to-Blu-ray “Willow”). Does “Roger Rabbit” still work? Does it ever. Watching the film on this long-overdue Blu-ray release, I was stunned by how great it still works in every way. It’s a classic.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

Why has Robert Zemeckis’ classic held up while others have not? I think the lack of ’80s-specific references really helps the piece feel timeless and the performances and fantastic script would work in any era. “Roger Rabbit” is just a fun,

Wamg Interview: Charles Fleischer – The Voice of Roger Rabbit

Interview conducted by Tom Stockman March 6th, 2013

It all began in 1986 at the Comedy Store in La where director Robert Zemeckis saw Charles Fleischer perform his stand-up comedy act. The act consisted of a lot of voices and sound effects, but what most impressed Zemekis was what he called ”his vocal presence.” And so when auditions began for the human star of Zemeckis’ upcoming live action/animated hybrid murder mystery noir film Who Framed Roger Rabbit — the part eventually played by Bob Hoskins — they called Fleischer. Not to read for that part, but to read with the actors auditioning for that part. Fleischer eventually got the part providing the voice for Roger.

That was 25 years ago. Charles Fleischer went on to voice Roger in some Roger Rabbit shorts and has acted in movies such as Dick Tracy, Straight Talk and Zodiac and recently provided one of the voices in Rango.

Rob Minkoff Talks The Lion King 3D

Rob Minkoff Talks The Lion King 3D
Director Rob Minkoff discusses The Lion King's 3D conversion, his thoughts on motion-capture, Chinese Odyssey, and more

Last month, I got to see one of the greatest animated movies of all time in a way I had never seen it before. Back in May, Disney announced that the 1994 classic The Lion King will be re-released in theaters with a brand new 3D conversion, for a limited two-week run starting on September 16. The Lion King will then make its debut in Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on October 4, along with an eight-disc trilogy set as well. I was invited to a special early screening of The Lion King 3D, and a press day where we were able to speak with some of the filmmakers and artists responsible for this classic, and the new 3D conversion. While I'll hold off on my reaction to this new 3D experience, I thought I'd share

Donald Duck is 76

Do you prefer "Daffy" or "Donald"? I can't say I've ever been much of a fan of either of the famous Ducks (maybe Howard, briefly, in the 80s). Maybe sea fowl just aren't my thing? I was, however, totally into Chip & Dale (and chipmunks) as a child. So here's seven minutes of funny Toy Tinkers (Best Animated Short Film Nominee, 1949) starring all three to start your morning:

Here's a list of the ten best Donald Duck cartoons from a real fan. And if you've never seen Donald's only Oscar-winning short, Der Fuehrer's Face (1942) you can watch it on YouTube.

The Disney and Warner Bros characters used to get Oscar nominated a lot in the Animated Short category. In the past couple of decades the closest thing we have to a perennial in that category is Wallace & Gromit or Pixar as a studio, if that counts, though their characters don't repeat.
