To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Nothing better than sitting down watching this film full of 80's child nostalgia. I still own a cushion and Roger Rabbit teddy from my childhood and never got rid of them because this film has a special place in my heart.
The Blu-Ray is a great testament to the film popularity with a ton of extras and goodies to feast your eyes on. I kept thinking would a 1080 upgrade be bad for a film like this as it could prove dated with the toons and actors mixing it up on screen but trust me it does not and if anything only shows how groundbreaking the effects were for its time and can still be appreciated today.
There is audio commentaries from Robert Zemeckis, Frank Marshall etc, mini Roger Rabbit shorts, featurettes, the deleted pig head sequence with added commentary plus a lot more to keep any animation fan happy. A great release for a great film
This is not a review on the movie. The movie is excellent! I was Disappointed with the quality of the 4K. I thought the animated characters would look stunning but they are dull and grainy. If you have the blu-ray version you don't need this.
The movie is absolutely a 5 Star feature..... one of the greats.... However, I’ve marked this product down as I was expecting the cover artwork of this to be as the one advertised in a sleeve perhaps...... however, I just received the standard jewel case with the standard cover art (I repeat, not the image used in the promotion for this item).... very disappointed....
I have fond memories of this movie during the early dating years with the girl I married later on! I had VHS video of this which my kids loved too but that wore out with use, so it was great to see this movie again. It's such a great example of what studios could do with hand-drawn animation and real practical effects - there's not a single big of CGI in sight. And the HD restoration of the print is a joy to watch!
Great film which I have always enjoyed but 4HK, really? I'm not sure it's really worth buying this film again if you have a reasonable copy. The real time action is pretty good but the cartoon elements / action is still pretty grainy. Disappointed overall.
Saw this movie yesterday and after 25 years it's still one of my favorite animated/live action flicks. Since everybody probably knows what it's about i'll skip the in-depth review and go straight for the technical bits;
Keeping in mind that it is a quarter of a century old I think they did a really good job restoring it. Picture is sharp without too much noise, some can be seen in darker areas of course but not enough to annoy. Compared to a deluxe edition DVD I also own it's much better, well worth the upgrade. The sound is DTS-HD MA 5.1, unfortunately not much of a difference from the DVD. Minimum usage of the surround speakers and subwoofer made it a bit of a dissapointment, but was compensated by excellent separation of the front and center speakers. The speech and Jessica's song was coming clean from the center and the sound effects from the front speakers, with some of it from the center without making the dialogue difficult to hear.
Ever since the Blu-Ray format won the fight I have been waiting for WFRR to appear on it - finally over so long, the 25th anniversary edition arrives and I jumped on the chance to own it!
Once again, Amazon out did themselves and I received this sans scratches and in perfect condition in good time - as for the film it is completely worthy of its classic status with some of the best animation on show. Also still the only film where'll you find the Looney Tunes and Mickey Mouse sharing a screen!!
A childhood favourite finally brought to high definition - fantastic!!!!
