This new 2-Disc Collector's Edition is a very nice set, however you look at it. You can tell that much time and care went into this one. Packed with a new Anamorphic 16X9 Widescreen transfer and a jaw-dropping Dolby 5.1 remix, Rock & Rule has never looked and sounded better! The package is a custom box with a pullout gatefold digi-case, and exceptional artwork on all sides.
Now let's talk about the extras on the first disc, which is also available as the cheaper stand alone single DVD release of Rock & Rule. An audio commentary with Director Clive A. Smith is well worth listening in on, you'll learn tons and never get bored. A 22+ minute vintage making-of featurette also reveals many facts concerning the production of Rock & Rule. A short restoration comparison is included, where you can see just how great this new DVD transfer looks! Lastly is an extensive stills gallery of pre-production sketches.
Now let's talk about the special features on the 2nd disc, only available in the 2-Disc Collector's Edition. A nice collector's booklet is included featuring various interviews, artwork and photos. Perhaps the real gem is the alternate Canadian version of Rock & Rule presented here in fullscreen format. The main differences are that a different actor was used to voice Omar, much of the dialogue is more risque, and it runs a few minutes longer in the credits.Read more ›
A magnificent, entertaining and well made animated Sci-fi fantasy rock opera with the music of Debroah Harry, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Earth Wind and Fire and Cheap Trick. The Animation is what i call spectacular even on the characters, there's a fairly decent plot but still this is a very impressive underrated cult animated flick that will now have it's audience thanks to DVD, that Angel is a total knockout.
The 2-Disc set includes the American version with great pictre & sound quality and the alternate Canadian version with a different voice track for "Omar" some omitted scenes and a alternate ending. There's also commentary by the director Clive Smith, behind the scenes, the Nelvana short " The Devil and Daniel Mouse" with behind the scenes of that short, trailer to "Rock & Rule", still gallery, collectable booklet, and conceptual art.
A highly recommended movie and a highly recommended DVD for lovers of animation, Sci-fi, fantasy and rock.
Also recommended: Heavy Metal, American Pop, The Fifth Element, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Wizards, The Black Cauldron, Fire & Ice, Hey Good Looking!, Robin Hood (Disney), Akira, Ghost in The Shell, Metropolis ( both 1927 and 2001 versions), Princess Mononoke, The Dark Crystal, The Wizard of Oz, Treasure Planet.
But, thanks to the miracle of DVD and the dedicated staff at Unearthed Films, maybe the film will finally reach an audience that can appreciate it.
The movie itself, if you are unfamiliar with the plot, takes place in a dark, sinister future, many years following a nuclear war which has eradicated mankind from the planet. The cities are now inhabited by mutants that evolved from dogs, cats, and rats.
Enter Mok, a declining rock superstar who more than slightly resembles a cross of Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger. Utilizing black magic, he seeks revenge on the world that is turning its back on him by opening a dimensional gateway and releasing a demon. All he needs is a certain voice that can open it...and as the movie opens, that voice just happens to be singing at a local bar. When Mok spirits her off to work his evil will, her band, led by the co-singer/jealous boyfriend, follows her...ending in a concert finale of epic proportions.
While the movie has confusing sequences and a slightly disjointed narrative, it is cleverly written, with plenty of slapstick, visual gags, and dark humor which work really well...all crammed into a scant 79 minutes.Read more ›
