That one scene where the wizard makes everyone commit suicide traumatized me as a kid.
Fifty stars, and how is Fire and Ice NOT a linked tag?!
FUN FACT: Thomas Kinkade was one of the background painters for this film. Yes, that Thomas Kinkade.
Do they talk about whatserface's ass?
Bad ass. I love this movie even more now.
The only things I remember about this movie are boobs and the main character being completely useless.
Really weird, we were trying to find this movie to watch last night, randomly. Is there something happening with this thing or is that just coincidence?
I don't think so, but I did see that they added it to Netflix instant recently. Hooray!
Robert Rodriguez is making a live-action remake if that counts as "something happening with this thing."
Robert Rodriguez does for live action what Ralph Bakshi did for animation. Whatta pair!
And that's not a compliment.
And while Kricfalusi then turns around and licks every drop from Bakshi's drippy, clap-riddled dong, he suggests that Disney's insistence on realistic animation is evil and wrong.
Rotoscoping may have been interesting back then, but Bakshi still couldn't direct his way out of a paper bag without ending up behind schedule and over budget.
Cool stuff but we really shouldn't be praising them, as this stuff was the forerunner of the crap George Lucas makes us sit through today.
Then I will praise them.
He actually said he regretted relying so much on rotoscoping instead of merely using live footage as a guide. I think the effect worked better in this than any other time he used it but it definitely limits creativity in the artists.
