If you read the first Past Ebert post you know the drill:
Roger Ebert is an American treasure.
Reading his work can give you a free film education.
That's why it's important to revisit his past musings.
Which we do, in this weekly column.
Today's Past Ebert is in honor of it's Blu Ray Release :
Ebert's Original Review of: WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT
In 1988, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT was blessed with the gift of movie gifts:
A perfect, 4 Star Rating, from our boy!
The review is a great read and Ebert was dead on with this statement:
Like "2001," "Close Encounters" and "E.T.," this movie is not only great entertainment but a breakthrough in craftsmanship - the first film to convincingly combine real actors and animated cartoon characters in the same space in the same time and make it look real. I've never seen anything like it before.
Indeed, Roger. Indeed.
As if this wasn't enough, we have a great bonus:
The Video Review from 'At The Movies' !
I love the internet.
