We often forget that we don’t HAVE to exclusively review bad movies. The point of this podcast was to review not only the terrible, but also the weird, and the wonderful.
So this week, we’re tackling one of the craziest, most ambitious, omg-how-did-this-get-made-but-in-a-GOOD-way, movies of ALL TIME: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”
Loosely based on a novel of the same name, and when we say “loosely” we mean “barely” or even perhaps “not at all”, this film is a seminal work of art, not just in the career of Robert Zemeckis, or the history of Disney, or even the tradition of animation, but perhaps in the pantheon of film as a whole.
And it’s an absolute MIRACLE that this thing ever got made.

Let’s discuss the artistry, the genius, and the inappropriateness for grade schoolers of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
