Soon, my Wizards/Zardoz double-feature will once again be complete!
(A favored bill back in the revival house days...)

WIZARDS... one of my all time most wanted dvds, I kid you not. I've been consciously awaiting this dvd since before I had a dvd player!

Awesome.

Finally! Sounds like a great one too...Bakshi commentary should be something to experience! I hope a brave distributor takes on Coonskin one of these days, deluxe-style.

Nice price too! Might have to get some love on that.

By the way, I've always wanted one of these below, but it's always been on the backburner. With the movie coming to dvd, I figured the time was now to hunt one down, before prices went up again. These used to fetch about $40-$50, but I actually snagged this one for $25.

Check it out...

Anyone want to give are view of this? I've heard of it, but I don't ever recall seeing it. Do you think someone who didn't watch it as a kid would enjoy it?

Sure, if you dig trippy animation, and stories about the perseverance of the human spirit (well, humanoid spirit) in the midst of apocalyptic despair and chaos.

It's a wonderful film.

What a treat watching this reminds me of the midnight sleeper showings where I saw all my favorite films for the first time.
The DVD is pretty nice for a completely cell animated filml the color and movement look rich and natural. Featured is the original mono soundtrack and a new stereo track which adds a little depth to the wonderfully sparse audio. I haven't listened to the commentary but the featurette with Bakshi is terrific. He mentions that this is the only DVD he will do anything for as this film is special. He also says that a petition is the only reason the DVD came about. If anyone has links to petitions for
Hey Good Lookin'
StreetFight
Fire & Ice
post 'em
we need all of Ralph's films on DVD

I definately want Street Fight

Question: I think I am mixing my Bakshi films up, which film of his has a version of 'Scarbourough Fair' in the film's soundtrack?

I'll believe it (just in case it helps make it happen)! Thank you!
