Default A Look Back At: Cool World

This is going to be the start of a series of threads looking back at movies that for me left an impression, whether they were good or bad the movies highlighted were the ones that I just never forgot.

First up is Cool World



Starring Brad Pitt, Gabriel Byrne and Kim Bassinger, Cool World was released in 92 and at the time it was considered a disaster by critics. Despite great art and sound design the acting was considered wooden, the animation cheap and a story that was just a mess and loaded with plot holes.

For me as a kid I found the movie to be very engaging, I liked the fact that the animation looked a bit cheap, it was part of it's appeal, while not as sophisticated as Roger Rabbit which came earlier it was still great because it seemed like the anti-Roger Rabbit. A movie that was more adult in nature that featured stripper looking animated females set in a dirty, smoke and booze infested cartoon world, it was at the time just something I had not seen before.



The story is basically about a cartoonist called Jack Deebs (Gabriel Byrne) who unknowingly gets visions of Cool World which he in turn creates in print. When doodle (cartoon) minx Holli Would (Kim Basinger) discovers that she can crossover to the real world if she has sex with a noid (human) she sets out a plan to seduce Jack into sleeping with her. Jack is somehow uncontrollably able to jump between Cool World and the real world which Holli uses to her advantage. Out to stop her is detective Frank Harris (Brad Pitt) the only noid that lives in Cool World, Frank and Jack end up forming an unlikely alliance to stop Holli Would from destroying both worlds due to her actions.



So what were peoples thoughts on this movie?

Do you consider it a cult movie?

Do you think it was a piece of shit?

Discuss...

Im surprised you've never heard of it, in my view I think it is a bit of a forgotten gem, but then some people may disagree with me.

The only thing it has in common with Roger Rabbit is that it mixes animation with live action, otherwise they are nothing alike. Read what I wrote it explains all.

I recently picked it up on dvd, I bought it on amazon which I found by just doing a random search by chance seeing as I couldn't find it in stores, I just assumed it was deleted, but it turns out here in the uk it's not.

underrated movie... def. preferred this over roger rabit at the time. much more adult-oriented. i used to love kim basinger during this era and the animated version of her was even better lol. brad pitt creepin up not long after his brief role in Thelma & Louise. nice find Tauro !
