Gosh, this is bad. Technical whiz-bangery doesn't make up for the extremely boring storytelling and filmmaking (the process used to make the film look the way it does meant that they couldn't move the camera if people were in the shot, so everything feels inert). Bridges shows some flashes of charisma early on but once he gets transported to the computer world it sucks the life out of him. Only David Warner survives the translation to bits and bytes with any semblance of personality intact. The movie is perhaps most interesting in its conception of what AIs and computers can do, but the interior of the computer world is so weirdly conceived that it's hard to draw any coherent parallels between it and the structure of the real-life technology. That might have passed muster in 82 when nobody really knew what was going on inside a computer, but now it just feels arbitrary. End of line.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
This, on the other hand, is a major delight. Even more technically impressive than Tron, WFRR? goes the extra mile by having an involving and well-acted story to go along with the how'd-they-do-that stuff. Bob Hoskins gives the role all the hard boiling it needs to work, while still leaving room to get pretty darn goofy. But really, we're all here for the combo of cartoons and Chinatown, and as weird as that premise is, it totally works. I could gush about the fantastic animation and whatever corporate agreements needed to happen to get all the characters present in the film, but I kinda just want to go back and watch the movie again instead.
