Who Framed Roger Rabbit - 04/13/13
On this week's episode, Brent chooses the pioneering, live action/animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) for us to watch. The film takes place in an alternate reality 1940's Hollywood in which animated characters co-exist with human beings; when Roger Rabbit is framed for murder, a down-on-his-luck gumshoe (Bob Hoskins) finds himself reluctantly trying to clear his name. The film inspires discussion on the topics of: the career of Robert Zemeckis (and the influence of Steven Spielberg); Disney characters vs Warner Bros. characters; are graphic artists worthy of winning awards for Best Cinematography; and we hear about sexual fantasies starring cartoon characters. Plus, find out how you can win an unopened copy of Who Framed Roger Rabbit!
