Take the nostalgia goggles off, it's a kids movie at the end of the day, but it's one of those films that didn't have any business being this good.
Dated graphics, somewhat shitty story, meh in other areas. Typical flipfag animated film that is released first in flipland almost without outside support:
>takes much longer to make than standard live-action flip flim fare
>average story at best
I liked the film, but it's kinda weird that the quality of the backgrounds and animation along with some grim moments are in a movie called "Help! I'm A Fish". It's like The Good Dinosaur with its radical shifts but The Good Dinosaur turned out to be "well shit, that was actually pretty good" instead of shit
It was made in the country that invented social realism, where cartoons usually deal with death, loss and the futility of life and trying to find happiness despite it. And on a very small budget, never meant to compete with anything else.
Your use of terms like background porn & guilty pleasure remind me of the main reason I even went to see it as a kid.
It was good.
For a movie mostly made by one person and immediately released to the public domain, this was really pretty good.
What was the name of that one japanese animated movie that came out a few years back with a almost photo realistic style that was about a fish living in a tank at a sushi restaurant trying to escape before he was killed?
I remember seeing the trailers years ago but never got a chance to see it.
Anyone know what I mean?
I found this...
Made me feel nostalgic...
Like when you guys made the "do the impossible see the invisable" animation.
hahaha imagine a world where all the characters in existance had their own separate planets (includin our own) and you could freely travel between worlds, never aged, and could rewind time to whenever you wanted to start adventuring...feeling all the different scenarious glorious and glory where you choose to help, hinder or merely observe the heroes of the story~
It would allow you to experience every crossover known to man...
And when you wanted to reset the world you just wave your hand and poof! Back to the beginning~
Of course you do not want teletubbies getting mauled by Darth Vader so planets must be separated by age rating and genre
Horror planet lvl G
Horror planet lvl T
Psychological Thriller planet lvl M
And Port Planet: Literally a place where there is no Perma Death but lets all planets and genres mix and meet each other to talk
All of Michel Ocelot's works are severely underrated everywhere except France and Japan (they are so popular in Japan because Studio Ghibli has the copyrights to release them in Japan).
Add Sylvain Chomet there and you're done.
I thought this was pretty good. Very interesting use of CGI.
Bump for other people.
Not sure if it's hidden (cause Chuck Jones is a big name), but Gay Purr-ee.
>you will never be able to say "gay" without it sounding faggot-y
This. Can't find it online at all, but for a cheapass video short it was fucking good.
Of course, I can only vaguely remember it so it could actually be shit for all I know, but what I remember was good.
Leafy, A Hen Into The Wild was extremely popular on /co/ for a short time. It's pretty vital that you watch the original korean version with subs though, because they neuter the 'problematic' scenes in the English version, which fucks the entire movie.
Trailer for RPG Metanoia with subtitles
The Legend of Prince Valiant, an animated series from the 90s on The Family Channel, is probably my favorite show of all time. It is highly serialized, violent, and achieves a depth rarely found in American animation, dealing with real fundamental societal problems and conflicts, including conflicts between politicical philosophies (!) without being preachy despite being on a Christian network.
In fact, the network imposed very few restrictions on the show, and I believe the noncommercial nature of the network allowed the show greater artistic freedom than other series based on toylines or other properties. They had no toys to sell, just a message, and not even Christianity! It is only rarely the characters go to church; the main ideology they espouse is basically American liberalism and egalitarianism lead by an enlightened king (I haven't watched it recently or really in depth ever, but I also don't think the creators thought too hard about that part either). The biggest restriction that TFN gave was they couldn't have any magic, which inadvertently made it more violent than other shows - no energy blasts, no forcefields, just swords and shields and arrows and cannons, and injury and death (!).
It is highly serialized, with multiple intertwining plotlines and dynamic characters - it was made as a family show, not a children's show. Both seasons have overarching plots, and most main characters get real arcs.
It has a female knight in training and this isn't ignored, but actually examined. There is an African knight who gets a tragic backstory and an important role, and neither of them feel shoehorned in for a diversity requirement. They are real and are flawed, like all the characters.
The animation is kind of stilted, and some of the episodes are uneven, but the main body of the show is rock-solid and has much to recommend it.
You can find it all on YouTube, along with its bitchin' intro
man i remember seeing a couple of those in school like kirikou. others on tv, pure nostalgia.
scooby-doo on zombie island is one i liked a lot when i saw it on t the first time despite never having liked scooby-doo.
>The Snow Queen (Russian: Cнeжнaя кopoлeвa, Snezhnaya koroleva) is a 1957 Soviet animated film directed by Lev Atamanov.
This is the movie a young discouraged Miyazaki saw that made him stick with animation instead of quitting.
>that art scene
>watched nearly 3/4 of this list before even reading this
>American Pop, The Thief and the Cobbler, Rock & Rule, Asterix and the Vikings in the list
I wonder how many people watched Rock & Rule, I'm currently restoring the Canadian Version, I remember that my previous attempts at doing it were rather popular, so I wonder if anyone here saw it
I remember catching this movie on TV years ago, the ending really made an impression on me, something about the little girl being all alone on the sea, the villian turning into a human and just floating away, and the fat friend desperately trying to bring his friend back to life, only to drop the fish and have his mom step on him, I remember that being pretty dark
I've seen it. It's a pretty damn good movie.
I would reccomend The Princess and the Robot, but since there is no english dub, subtitles or hell, even a decent upload of the film because it's a forgotten piece of Brazilian animation, I can't exactly tell people to see it.
The animation is not even that good, in fact, it's pretty goddamn terrible, but the story is actually pretty ambitious for the material it came from, I'd personally remake it if I was an important animation producer
This whole movie was delightfully fucked up, but I found the part where the dad decides that since he can't outright murder his son he'll instead convince him to start smoking especially funny.
The lines and colouring admitely are very similar. The danish company that made this movie is known to have animated for many american children's movies in the 90's and 80's, so it makes sense to assume that
I just watched this movie after seeing your post. Thanks, it's definitely worth seeing!
Although the ending felt kinda disappointing to me. I really liked the really grim universe that was set during the first part, as well as all the dark humor, but then it just gets too suddenly turned upside down. This just doesn't feel like the kind of movie were everything should get resolved by a freaking dance party.
Yeah, that was my favorite scene too! The dad steals the whole show, really.
I don't remember seeing any hype for this outside of /co/, until maybe it hit netflix and I saw it had some (deservedly) decent to good reviews. I'll admit it is pretty mediocre compared to most of the gems in this thread, but I really think that guy is right in classifying it as at least an honorable mention.
Would you believe it that I just saw the title of the vid you posted and thought to myself, "wow, this reminds me somehow of that Estonian cartoon based of their folklore, I wonder what's it called"
Legitimately one of my favorite films. I've seen reviews calling it a "so bad its good" movie, but I honestly don't really see what makes it bad. It's story is weird, yeah, but the animation and music is fantastic. Really is a hidden gem.
Nelvana actully did a lot of intresting/weird original animation the 70s-80s, like The Devil and Daniel Mouse. I recommend anyone into vintage animation check them out.
My phone, sorry. It's got a shitty camera so those are the best pictures I can get.
HOLY SHIT THANK YOU ANON!! I've been trying to find this for fucking years and I could never find the damn thing. Which makes sense if it's russian since I was searching for the english dub!
It's so weird watching this now because its so obviously Russian, in the animation and characters and everything, but I never picked up on it as a kid. God damn is it good to watch this again though, thank you so much!
The reviewers missed one crucial thing.
The plot is the music. It's the "rock power ballad" conquers the "special effect helped solo act". That's the plot, the power of good rock vs the evil power of bad rock.
Once you wrap your mind around that, it stops being stupid and starts being awesome.
Also, is there a reason to buy the BD at all? I have the 2 disk DVD already.
IMO they missed the point of the movie because most of them only saw the US cut, which for some reason changes some dialog that makes Mok's motivation to raise the demon pretty confusing to follow, he's doing it for fame and attention, I don't know where the hell the whole ''vengeance'' thing came from.
It's not obscure in the least, but I've never met anyone outside of /co/ who's heard of it which drives me INSANE because it's one of the greatest things I've ever seen.
Is it just me or does Chuck sound different at the end when Chuck
is pretty much in denial that his cousin "died"? He would've sounded like his dorky voice
I remember that scene being somewhat more intense as a kid, like instead of the mom clumsily stepping over the dummy fish because she dropped it, everyone tried their hand at grabbing the fish, until she stepped on him, to which I remembered the scene being longer or something, might be wrong, I often remember these kind of things wrong.
The two most notable ones is the entire sound mix, and the protagonist's voice, both of which are better in the Canadian Version, even though the only thing to remain from that cut is a VHS broadcast tape.
Other minor changes is short scenes being deleted/replaced, most involving Omar for some reason, they tried making him more likeable in the US cut because the distributors didn't like him at all and felt that they needed someone well known voicing him (Paul Le Mat).
Gonna have to be more specific. Can you remember what other animals there were? How large of a cat are we talking? Was it just a really fat cat or was she not overweight but seemed gigantic from the pov of small mouse sized characters? Was she a house cat or a lion or panther or something?
Also other details might be helpful like what kind of art style or a rough estimate of the time period the movie might have been made, etc.
I've seen Watership Down more than once now, and I don't really remember anything very rapey. Explain?
Hot damn, OP
You brought back some memories with that.
That movie came out just at the right time for me. Back as a child and even still today I was completely obsessed with anything that took place underwater and revolved around ocean life.
It's why I didn't like the Little Mermaid film (as it takes place half on land) but loved the TV show instead.
So a movie about kids turning into fish and such and exploring the sea was basically made for me, loved it so much.
Haven't watched the movie in forever, but just reading >>78892146 brought the melody immediately back. Maybe I still have the VHS of it around somewhere.
Yeah, who wouldn't have wanted a horse like that, even as a boy.
Movie critics tend to have their heads up their own ass, so they have a hard time when something tries to incorporate other forms of entertainment in a way that's not just supporting the film. They don't get the good rock vs. bad rock part of the story because its music, not movies.
When I went to look for that one on youtube, I stumbled on this, which I think may be the version you remember.
Personally I like this old Papageno short.
Nope. It's the one in the pic here, though I can't find any good videos for it.
Can't believe that there are three different cartoon adaptions of the Magical Flute.
It's a pretty good opera for adapting into a cartoon. Makes me wish there were more good opera cartoons.
Which reminds me of this Rhinegold animation I liked:
Oh and when searching for that, I found a fourth Magic Flute:
I always had the feeling that Sita sings the Blues was relatively well-known for a self-made production. Especially because of the legal battles.
That is one of those where I heard about it before release but then totally forget to ever watch them.

I see you copy pasted this from an old thread. I also see you didn't sort out the dead links before reposting as was asked in that thread. Seriously, this is very annoying and you could have cut out the dead links last time. You can even go on over to >>/trash/ to check the embeds before posting this here now. Please consider that next time.
But thanks again because these are some good recommendations. I just wish A Journey through Fairyland could be in there to go with Chririn, Unico, and Sirius.
Actually, if you've got time, you can delete all these spammy posts right now, take you copypaste over to /trash/, clean it up, and come back with it. You can still post the titles of the dead links as recommendations if you want, too.

I have fond memories of this one.
Closest thing I can remember to that is when Hyzenthlay is trying to reason with Woundwort because there's not enough room in Efrafa for the does. It's expanded in the book that when rabbit warrens are too overcrowded, pregnant does will actually experience miscarriages. I always thought that was interesting. Like a natural abortion happening with animals.
Yeah, that's the US cut, for some reason they made it seem as if Mok wanted to raise the demon so he could kill everyone when really, he was just doing it for popularity, so much that the demon doesn't actually kill anyone in the Canadian version
The Original Canadian version
lucky for you I made a fan-edit so you don't have to put up with VHS quality for the most part, this is an old version of the edit, by the way, I'm working on a newer version.
Anyway, here's a MEGA link, because Youtube and Unearthed Films are assholes
Just finished watching Allegro non Tropo after seeing it mentioned several times. It was good, but it didn't live up to the hype I'd had for it.
>mfw Alan Rickman (Joe in HIAF) passed away today
>mfw he and David Bowie passed away on the same week
RIP King of the Cod, Lord of the Krill, the Prince of the Whales
Only last week I found the plague dogs, I don't think I will recover from the feels for sometime.
"There can't you see it, our island, just stay with me, il get you there"
Holy fuck, I remember a film as a kid where some Queen has a slave boy, and he gets glass from a mirror lost into his eyes.
Is that the Snow Queen? Damn I gotta watch it again.
Also remember Waterbabies? That was the shit.
Yup, that's the basic plot of the Snow Queen. Didn't know there was an adaption of Waterbabies actually.
That has always been one of my favorite animated villain deaths actually.
Personally, I'd subtitle the film, also I could dig around and find my old VHS tape and hope that the quality is any good, because the only uploads of the film on Youtube are terrible. Fucking dreadful.
>tfw I missed the opportunity to see HIAF on the big screen in my country but left the country for good before it came out
In the English version Alan Rickman plays the villain, so there's that.
Also, for anyone that likes to go digging in 99cent dvd bins, THIS is the American cover they chose to go with.
I saw Waterbabies as an adult after reading the book. I thought it was an awful movie, but in a hilarious kind of way.
Cool book tho.
Alan Rickman just died of cancer
Fuck dude, not even a goddamn week to recover from the loss of Bowie
Speaking of Bowie, he did a song for pic related
It's cheap looking because it is free. It was crowdfunded and automatically released to the public domain. And most of the money spent on it went into unforeseen legal battles to get the rights to the music. With those kinds of limited resources, it's hard to expect better and in consideration of that, it came out okay and was clearly made with a lot of heart if nothing else.
I understand if you don't like the style, though.
So I am watching this for the first time, nothing makes sense, but there is something appealing about the visuals, and the brown girl that Ceasar squeezes the tits at the start of the film is really fucking cute.
The interlude in the style of various artists is probably the best part of Cleopatra, although it's not a bad film. 1001 Nights is more fun, although Belladonna of Sadness is easily the best-looking of the three Animerama films.
Not really a movie, but a pretty underrated TV special. The director's shorts are really good too.
>get to the wine drinking scene
>mfw The Bill Cosby Show theme song plays in my head
I've never really seen anyone talk about this one.
The album it's based on (and the music in the movie) is fantastic, and the backgrounds and scenery are gorgeous, but god damn those character designs are too in the Uncanny Valley for me to want to show it to my friends. They would've turned me off from watching the thing if I wasn't already a fan of the concept album/book.
I heard they ran out of money while making this and weren't able to give it the kind of ending they wanted, and that's why the ending turned out as depressing as it was.
It always bothered me that
the mom rotted away and died in prison. When she was locked up I immediately expected her to make some kind of escape at some point, but it never happened and the film just moved on without her.
Also saw lots of reviews on Netflix from angry parents complaining it wasn't kid-friendly enough.
This is possibly some of the cutest shit I've ever seen.
Mr Bug goes to Town was fun. However I felt as though it was trying to tell several stories at once. It couldn't just pick a solid narrative to go with. Still fun to watch though.
Saw this movie at Walmart
Anyone seen it?
This one's not like, the greatest movie in the world, I checked it out on a whim, but the animation's quite nice and it's pretty sweet. The sidekick characters got pretty fucking obnoxious after a while, though.
I have the English dub of pic related on a dollar DVD. Loved the design work and music score.
This one is good for the animation, but not really a great film overall.
Adam and Dog
I've seen a lot of praise for Fantastic Planet in the past, but I greatly prefer Les Maitres du temps.
This is a pretty neat music video.
One of my favourite animations as a kid.
Wanted to add something to this thread but couldn't think of much. I don't remember how good Flight of the Dragons was. I think it was about an educated guy being recruited by the magical world to fight a wizard, and he needed to become a dragon for that.
The song was already playing in my head.
Speaking of an HD Version, I thought I'd post something to raise the interest.
This is a screengrab from the last 'act' of the Film, from an Uncompressed HD rip of the film, as it's presented in 1080p...
...And this is a cap from the Workprint Version of the climax, which for some reason looks not only sharper, but it's essentially an HD Version of the Canadian Version even though it's missing a couple of shots
The new version of the edit will combine the Workprint with the US version
A is for Autism
Tom Hank's Electric City, but I can't figure out where to watch that anymore
You can take care of those things rather easily with color correction and editing the splices out, I've just finished a ''rough'' version of the climax where from there I intend to grab every splice frame I couldn't fix with editing and digitally clean it up.
As for the more complicated scenes (like the first scene of the reel where Mylar boasts at the band) I already cleaned it up, while you might have to put up with film dirt and scratches, I think the overall picture looks better than the blu ray, which has many color problems.
It can't be on Youtube because it will probaly be taken it down, it's not going to be terribly big either (I'll wager it won't go over 4.5 GB) So I think it's going to be on MEGA, hopefully on Vimeo if one of my friends can do it
Are you on Kametsu? They have lots of DDL's for western cartoons, along with anime. They are there own scene, and have lots of high quality releases. It might be a good place to put the MEGA link. It's a public forum, just gotta sign up.
The Workprint is one of the bonus from the special releases of Rock & Rule, it has the intro (which will be used to restore the Text crawl) and the last 12 Minutes, it was struck shortly before MGM ordered the film to be re-edited, aka the sound mix and the editing order follows the Canadian Cut more closely, and because it was copied from the original negatives instead of being a 3rd generation faded Theatrical Print like the one used on the blu-ray, image quality is sharper and colors are more defined in certain scenes despite the fact that it's all green and certain scenes do lack the background.
However, it is essentially one of the best sources for restoring the Canadian Cut, I bet that the whole film exists in that form and that it's in decent quality, why Unearthed never released the entire thing I don't know, because it's very likely that the entire film in Workprint form exists.
Cheap Trick released all the songs they made for the film on their album ''Sex, America, Cheap Trick'', Earth Wind and Fire released ''Dance Dance Dance'' on one of their discs, and Iggy Pop released an alternate version of ''Pain and Suffering'' in the Zombie Birdhouse disc
''My Name is Mok'', ''Triumph'', ''Angel's Song'', ''Invocation Song'' and the version of ''Pain and Suffering'' used on the film had small cassette releases given out to critics, but never had an official release, ''Hot Dogs and Sushi'' and ''Send Love Through - Finale'' never saw an official release in any way, the only versions of these songs out there were versions cobbled together from many different versions, as well as editing the audio channels so the dialog doesn't come up too often.
And then there's the fact that like many of the songs in Rock & Rule, the US edit mixes the songs very differently, Born to Raise hell is missing the back-up vocals, Send Love Through Finale uses different takes for the vocals, and other songs are pretty much a mess in the US version of the film.
>no mention of Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat
This cartoon is pure fucking comedy gold. I dare say, it manages to pull off the "bizzare and surreal" even better than Ren and Stimpy.
I also ship Felix and Sheba like mad, that idiot is chasing after the unreachable cunts all the time, and he's got mad good pussy right there next to him.
Oh yeah I forgot
Debbie Harry did an alternate version of ''Angel's Song'' and released it as ''Maybe For Sure'', aside from the lyrics it's the exact same song
That's where you're wrong, when you re-edit a film, and this goes for any film, you practically memorize the entire thing, as well as gathering as much info as you can about it because the Wikipedia page about it is crap and that there isn't a site with all the proper information.
Just the ''Making Of'' section of the Marvel Comic of this is full of fascinating info that is hard to forget about
In fact, I think I'll post the Marvel comic, you know, for fun.
The film was a huge flop at the box office, not only it had a limited release in Boston, but it was also renamed to ''Ring of Power'' and had 0 advertising behind it.
The cast lists Paul Le Mat as Omar, because at this point he was replacing Greg Salata due to MGM not liking him in the slighest and felt that they needed a well known actor doing the protagonist.
Despite being a huge flop, Marvel reported that this comic release of the film sold rather well
One of the differences between the US and Canadian version of the film is that the US version added this ''The War was Over...'' text to try and explain the setting instead of the original crawl's ''Another Time, Another Place...''
On the Fifth panel you see Angel talking to Omar, and Omar is frowning at her, the US version changed this and many other shots so Omar looks more playful than irritated, as well as adding a shot where Angel sticks her tongue at him.
The US cut also changed the voice of the Video Game Stretch is playing from a female voice doing a japanese accent to a male voice
Mylar asks Omar why he should let them finish
In the original version, Omar just growls at him, doesn't even finish his line, the US edit changed it so he ''keeps his cool'' when threatning Mylar with the guitar
Omar in the car with the band, he doesn't talk much in the Canadian Version, the US edit adds lines where Omar explains why he acts the way he does, and when Omar leaves them they changed the line from ''See you guys later.'' to ''You were great tonight, see ya.''
The scene in this page also has many changes, but they can pretty much all boil down to a desperate attempt to make Omar a more standard protagonist
The US edit changed the ''Thunder Row'' scene by adding a song in it as well as removing the dialog when Angel wakes Omar up
The flyover scene of them going to Mok's Mansion changed the music so it plays an extended version of ''Angel's Song''
Toad asks for Omar to apologize for the ''Freak'' reference
The Canadian Version Omar just calls him a dicknose, the US changed it to ''Dogbreath'', which isn't as funny.
Yeah, it's pretty sad considering the upward slope they were going with their TV Specials and Star Wars cartoons, which by the way, isn't the Boba Fett segment from the Holiday Special on the blu-ray?
Dizzy had his dialog changed in the US version, where before he didn't know how to drive, the US edit removed that line and replaced it with something else
The band in the fountain
Omar still dazed, is told by Dizzy that Angel's Gone, the Canadian Version has him still trying to process the information by going ''whaaattt?'', while the US changed the scene to him saying a more concerned and shocked ''what?''
in the US version, ''I'm the Man'' takes over the entire scene, there is no dialog until Omar says ''Nuke York's not ready for us!'', the radio announcer is not heard at all.
The small exchange after the band is arrested was removed in the US version, even though Omar doesn't answer Stretch after he says ''Great scam, Omar. What's next?'' in the Canadian Version.
A change in the US version, there is an added line for Mok while the computer is ''checking'' where he asks if it's the girl that can stop him, but the computer response ''No One, there is No One...'' was changed to ''No One, No One can send it back...''
Holy shit I didn't think I'd ever see someone else on here talk about this movie.
My childhood was full of poor kid movies (i.e non-Disney bargain bin stuff) and HIAF was one of the best, even better than some of the big name ones.
Another poor kid movie which I enjoyed a lot was The Toy Shop which is pretty corny but has some decent songs and the story itself is pretty cute. Surprisingly it's actually on youtube which is impressive considering how obscure it is.
For an actual gem I'd say Bartok the Magnificent is amazing. I don't know if you'd call a Don Bluth animation "hidden" but I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a quirky little adventure.
>Omar's big fucking neck
The failed concert in the Canadian Cut was just a shot of a Mok poster slowly burning up and exploding, the US edit added super imposed scenes from the climax and a live-action explosion for some reason, also, when Mok asked what happened, instead of the computer originally informed that an electrical failure caused the explosion, the computer tells him that the Demon destroyed Carnage Hall but didn't have enough power to stay in this dimension.
I love this scene, watching it with the lights off is always a blast.
A music video I made using an HD version of the film
Exclusive to the Canadian Version is a shot of Angel saying ''If I can sing it up, I can sing it back!'' after Mok nearly strangles her
Did I tell you guys how great of a character Angel is? She is still the damsel in distress of a story, but damn if she doesn't try to piss Mok off.
Mylar boasting at the band is heavily shortened in the US version of the film, for some reason.
I always thought Mok said ''My Enchants!'' in the canadian version of the film, why would he say ''Vengeance'' makes no sense to me, because for some reason Mok seeks revenge in the US version of the film, so much that they added in a couple of scenes where the Demon eats the audience
And one of the more well known changes from the US to the Canadian version, in the US version, Zip is killed off when saving Omar.
As for the minor changes, Omar says ''No Angel, don't!'' instead of ''Sing what, we gotta run!'' when Angel says that she gotta sing to the demon.
A change I personally detested was the addition of a close-up of Omar where he joins Angel when singing, I always thought it looked stupid how he gets up all ''heroic'', if that's what they wanted to make it look like
Thought it was over? Now comes the best part.
>all dem Mok costumes that didn't make to the film
>that early effeminate Omar
>dat ''Paula'' outfit for Angel
And here's something not a lot of people might have known about the film, the main characters are pretty much cartoon versions of the singers that sung their songs. I love it.
And it's over, thank you all for your attention
Can I use this thread to search a version of Christmas Carol I can't find in the web? All I remember is that there is a live action bit at the beginning and the take on the Ignorance and Want scene, with the Ghost of Christmas Present nothing to Scrooge that it's fault of people like him if they look like that and suddenly the ghoulish kids morph into normal looking ones.
By chance, are you familiar with this one? It's another amazing bargain-bin find with a misleading cover.
OP isn't film specific. Not even animation specific, actually.
So in that case, would Les Nombrils be considered a hidden gem?
What's wrong with the blu-ray? It looks fine to me.
The blu-ray is mostly fine, I was talking about the last 12 minutes, which is essentially everything after Angel confronts Mok in the Blimp, compared to the Workprint the lines are very blurry the comparison I posted earlier ITT is true for the entire last section of the film.
The blu-ray version of Rock & Rule is a Ring of Power print with the original logo faked in from a laserdisc source
>The blu-ray version of Rock & Rule is a Ring of Power print with the original logo faked in from a laserdisc source
So the Canadian one, right?
If so I'll just download a blu-ray rip. The last 12 minutes being fucked isn't that big of a deal.
You can't post the movie on Youtube though.
No, the Ring of Power version of the film is the US cut, aka Paul Le Mat as Omar, and a messed up sound mix, The Canadian cut only exists as a VHS broadcast tape and a fan-edit I made that I uploaded on MEGA, which is where the new version is going to be posted too, basicaly what I'm going to do is that for every Rock & Rule video I posted I am going to put annotations telling people to download it off MEGA, or watch it on Vimeo if I can get anyone to post it there.
