BIG MOVIE NIGHT: WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?Picking films to feature on Bad Movie Night isn't easy. ...Actually, no, that's a lie, it totally is easy, due to the sheer amount of shlock that film companies have put out with a straight face and a hunger for cash. One trope that I can consistently lean on for results, though, is "live action combined with animation". Space Jam, Monkeybone, Cool World... hell, if you count all the rotoscoping in the Bakshi canon, that's almost a solid quarter of the movies we've shown. And there are so many, many more I can show in the future.BIG MOVIE NIGHT: WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? in Personal
