Phubbs -> Cool World (1992) (2/8/2012 11:29:08 AM)

At first glance this just comes across as a more adult version of 'Roger Rabbit' and you'd be right basically. The plot is almost the same kind of thing involving a toon (they are called doodles) trying to get into the real world and then turn it into another toon world, pretty basic idea.

Bakshi tries again with animation but fails to capture anything of greatness here with this poor film, the film looks good in the animated world, background wise, but the actual animated characters all look horrible and badly designed. The animation of the characters is pretty shoddy looking and can't compare to 'Roger Rabbit' or any classic Warner Bros/Hanna Barbera toons, the only character that does move well is the femme fatale 'Holli'. Plus the live cast simply don't mix well with the animated characters, far too obvious.

The only bit of interest in the film is the fact that its slightly adult based and shows toons being 'killed', toons showing their butts, swearing a little, mild sexual references and the character 'Holli' shows quite a bit of ass n knickers throughout which we all wanted 'Jessica Rabbit' to do haha. Cast is wildly different in terms of skills, Pitt looks the part but simply can't act too well full stop, Basinger doesn't look anywhere near as good as her cartoon version lol! and she too can't act to save her life (not that hot either in my opinion) and Byrne is way too good for this kind of silliness and shows himself up really.

Mainly the animation gives it some appeal and it is somewhat of a cult, slightly, but falls well short of a decent film and makes little sense really.

If I can be a backseat mod for a moment and say that film review threads are typically generated by the website, and it's only worth doing one of your own if there isn't already a thread in existence. I ran a search on Cool World and there's already a thread for it. So yeah, this one will probably get locked. It's probably best to run a thread search for a film and then bump it with your own review. Gives the mods less work that way.

Just a friendly piece of advice.

Can I ask where you do these searches? I don't understand why I don't find these reviews when others do. I entered 'Cool World' and got 19 entries that were nothing to do with the film, mainly audiophiles and the WTC film.

What did you enter and where??

MonsterCat -> RE: Cool World (1992) (2/8/2012 11:44:32 AM)

I just entered the flick's title in the search box at the upper right corner of the page.

Never had a problem with it myself.

Phubbs -> RE: Cool World (1992) (2/8/2012 11:47:26 AM)

Right I now know the problem, I have been using the search box inbetween 'Members List' and 'Mod Tickets' just above where the film title is. I never saw that tiny search box right up there [8|]
