Confessions of a Film Junkie: A review of “Cool World”
By: Brian Cotnoir
Where do I begin to describe to mind-fuck of insanity that is Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World”? I think the unholy, inbred, bastard off-spring of “Heavy Metal” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” is a pretty accurate description. This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. It is a film that is part animation and part live action, and when you combine both of those elements all you end up with is a horrid excrement shit out by a brain dead monkey. Now let’s dissect the story of this anus of a film (assuming that it actually had a fucking story!) and find out why I thought that “Cool World” is one of the worst films ever made.
|Dear God, Brad! How desperate were you for work?|
|Jack Deebs and the animated Miss Holli Would.|
There are so many things wrong with this film that I’m afraid I won’t be able to cover all of them. The animated parts for this film just suck; there’s nothing cool or exciting about them and there are actually a few scenes in the film were the animation is clearly unfinished. Not to mention it’s really hard to follow the story and the main cast because there are random character’s attacking one another and exploding throughout the film.
|Seriously. What the Heck is This???|
I don’t think anyone should ever see this movie. “Cool World” is just too unintelligent and too confusing for most human minds to grasp, and that goes for both children and adults. Throughout the duration of this film I kept finding more and more things to complain about and hate about this movie. The only part I actually liked about this film was Brad Pitt because even though this was a really shitty movie with a really shitty script, he still tried his best to be a serious actor and do the best job he could, but unfortunately this is one of those rare instances where Brad Pitt’s presence cannot stop a movie from sucking. I think all copies of “Cool World” should be gathered and then placed in an airplane, and then that airplane should be flown into the mouth of an active volcano so they can all be destroyed, and the painful memories people have of this film will quickly fade away into obscurity. And if after all this you’re still naïve enough (or more likely STUPID enough)to see this film then I have no sympathy for you because I tried to warn you about how terrible this film was and instead you let your own ignorance get in the way 100% your fault!
