Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The mighty-muscled heroes and big-bottomed babes of fantasy artist Frank Frazetta inspired animator Ralph Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, Wizards) to create the swords-and-sorcery epic Fire and Ice. Bakshi uses a technique called rotoscoping, which uses live-action film of actors as the template for animation, allowing him to put realistic action into fantastic environments. The verisimilitude of movement in a cartoon can be startling, but that's about all Fire and Ice has to offer; the wafer-thin story, overwrought characters, and clumsy dialogue are vapid cliches. Of much greater interest are the extras in this two-disc set, including a making-of feature that demonstrates the painstaking process of rotoscoping; enthusiastic commentary from Bakshi, who's a jovial, down-to-earth guy with a thick Brooklyn accent; deliriously fatuous diary notes from one of the actors; and a feature-length documentary called Frazetta: Painting with Fire, which reveals the artist to be more intriguing than any of the barbarians he's famous for. The effusive praise of other fantasy artists and "Frazetta historians" occasionally veers into Spinal Tap territory, but it's fascinating watching Frazetta turn from a 1950s James-Dean-style tough guy into the king of fantasy art. Though his work is often dismissed as adolescent kitsch, the documentary persuasively argues that Frazetta deservedly dominates his corner of the art world. --Bret Fetzer

A real tribute to Frank Frazetta. If you are a fan of Frazetta's work you will really appreciate this animated movie.
From the opening stills you can get a grasp of his style and see the connection Ralph Bakshi has made to the
production of this feature.The 'Death Dealer' personna, riding in the backround at first and then becoming the
primary force in this battle of 'Good vs Evil', is straight from one of Frazetta's most famous posters.

The animation and art work are superb (by 1980's standards) and the DVD release really brings out the colors
and details missing from most of the VHS tapes I've viewed over the last twenty-plus years.

The movie is relatively short, at 80 minutes, and is packed with action from start to finish. You will not be bored.
The fast pace allows you to skip by the 'lame' sections of the story quickly and move on to the more interesting
parts that will grip you and provide an overall satisfying experience by the end of the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars What you'd expect July 4 2012

by now i always know what to expect from bakshi. an adult themed animation with odd pacing and cool looking scenes. The movie as usual drags by but has a naked woman to keep your attention. The pacing was same as usual but i little easier to follow than bakshis previous work. There isnt really much that is memorable from this movie besides the woman in the thong and the beatifull backdrops but i still liked it more than lord of the rings and about the same as wizards.
