FRAZETTA'S WORLD BROUGHT TO LIFE BY BAKSHI -- SWEET ON BLU-R

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Within five years of the released of his animated LOTR, director Ralph Bakshi co-produced another heroic fantasy with legendary artist Frank Frazetta. The story is set in a parallel -- or is it an alternate? -- world that reflects the iconic art of Frazetta. Life-like movements, again from clever rotoscoping, imbue the human and non-human characters with a vitality and eerie charisma. The blond hero Tarn and the scantily clad heroine in distress Teegra work out their differences with the icy sorcerer Lord Nekron and his willful mother Juliana in an Armageddon landscape of primeval beauty populated with fearsome subhumans and flying dragonhawks.
All the background art was done by then unknown artists Thomas Kinkade and future Dinotopia designer James Gurney. The commentary with producer/director Bakshi is a conversation with fan and filmmaker Lance Laspina (Frazetta: Painting With Fire). From Blue Underground."

"Teegra the barely covered beauty is voluptuously, outrageously sexy, but the animation is embarrassingly primitive. Also, I can't believe that no one has pointed out the music's VERY distracting similarity to the "Hogan's Heroes" theme, with occasional touches of "Jaws."
The real reason to buy this set is to get the excellent -- even if a little too fawning -- documentary about Frank Frazetta. Fascinating stuff."
