I have had the distinct pleasure of having worked with Mr. Cullen Blaine, director of Rotor, on a cartoon show. He was animation director at the time and, on a whim, a coworker decided to Google him. We already knew he was an old hand from Hanna Barbera and Disney, but we discovered so much more. A remarkable man had walked amonst us. Besides Beauty and the Beast II, The Mighty Ducks and a couple other cartoon titles was Rotor. Unfortunately, Cullen soon left our show for greener pastures (a brand new live action film, even!) and I was chagrined that my VHS copy of Rotor didn't arrive in time for me to get an autograph. A fine fellow, I wish Cullen well. It should please him to know that I and my coworkers have learned entire chunks of Rotor dialogue by heart and still greet each other in Coldyronese. A brilliant bit of folk art and I encourage everyone to buy a copy, since it'll probably never get to dvd. Enjoy it while you can. Check out Jabootu's Bad Film Dimension on the web for an insanely in-depth review of the joys of R.O.T.O.R. But you must buy R.O.T.O.R. and enjoy. Go. Hurry!
Why isn't it on DVD yet???
You have a female gym teacher scientist who has a giant curly mullet that changes color from scene to scene, you have a black guy that's apparently Native-American who's named Shoeboogie (!!!), you have a prototype robot police officer that's supposedly over 5 years from being functional, yet he gets activated by Shoeboogie's headphones bumping some electronic equipment. You also get non-stop continuity errors (in the climax, one rope being pulled from a truck magically turns into five ropes being pulled from three different directions) and some of the worst "snappy" dialogue I've ever heard. At one point the main character says to his government superior, "You fire me and I'll make more noise than two skeletons making love in a tin coffin, brother!"
And they're serious about all of it, the movie is NOT a joke.
Its incredible. Someone PLEASE put this ultra trash gem on DVD!!!!
