Who Framed Roger Rabbit? 25th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)
21 April 2013
Conclusion: This is a fun and clever movie for both adults and kids that really set the bar higher. It’s got a good script, great acting, fantastic animation, and Robert Zemeckis knocked this one out of the park.
Conclusion: Who Framed Roger Rabbit is neither a barrel of laughs nor an investable mystery, but it manages to win you over with a compelling universe and a knowing reverence towards the heyday of cartoon shorts.
Excerpt: The Film "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way." When Who Framed Roger Rabbit? made its 1988 theatrical debut, it snagged a trio of Oscars and another three nominations. How it didn't walk away with every single award that year is beyond the comprehension of this viewer.
Pros: Actors: Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Charles Fleischer, Joanna Cassidy, Director: Robert Zemeckis, Audio/Languages: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (English), Dolby Digital 5.1 (French), Dolby Digital 2.0 (Russian), Subtitles: English SDH, French, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1, Nu...
Excerpt: Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a terrific film from Robert Zemeckis, as well as one of the greatest films from the 1980’s. Unfortunately, it’s one of those films that doesn’t stand the test of time as far as the special effects go, but like Zemeckis’ Back to the Future , the effects aren’t the whole...
Excerpt: In Toon Town, the king of the cartoons is Roger Rabbit, comedic genius and megastar. But lately, his on screen performances have been lackluster, to say the least. He forgets his lines, goofs up gags, he’s just not on his game. Why? Rumors abound of an unfaithful wife, but no one knows for sure.
Conclusion: If Roger's tongue-twisting antics and Toontown's most grievous offenses don't leave you with the overwhelming desire to strangle Zemeckis or members of the production crew (one by one), Who Framed Roger Rabbit might just be the late-80s live-action/animation classic you've been searching for.
