Overview

Ralph Bakshi's memorable screen collaboration with Frank Frazetta, Fire and Ice, finally gets a special DVD treatment thanks to one of the leaders in cult film releases, Blue Underground. First off, this 2-Disc Limited Edition is gorgeous, with a holographic slipcase cover creating a striking package that will leave fans drooling and unassuming consumers enticed. With an anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen picture and top-of-the-line 6.1 DTS-ES and 5.1 Dolby Digital track sound options, you know that you're getting the best presentation possible for this release. Thankfully, the disc also includes enough extras for you to sink your teeth into, never mind a second disc that features the acclaimed Frazetta: Painting With Fire documentary by director Lance Laspina. Laspina also shows up on the Fire and Ice commentary with Bakshi, which is more like a sparring match than friendly sit-down audio track. It's not that the two men have disdain for each other, but there is something about Bakshi's New Yorker attitude that tends to clash with the other man's reserved qualities. The end result is an informative and awkwardly entertaining track filled with enough raging ego to fuel a small city, which fans of the infamous director won't be surprised by in the least. Fire and Ice extras include a vintage making-of and another smaller featurette that delves into the relationship of Frazetta and Bakshi. Some diary notes, a still gallery, and the original theatrical trailer make up the rest of the first disc, with another commentary included on the Painting With Fire disc. As usual, Blue Underground has gone out of its way to deliver a packed release that, even with its flaws (the making-of was mastered from the only existing video print), maintains a level of quality that is admired throughout the industry.

    Under Appreciated

    I saw this for the first time in 1987. I don't know how it escaped my attention when it first came out. I was a huge Frazetta fan back then and this would be a dream come true. I watched it over and over on a taped copy I made from Cinemax. It was a bad tape but I loved it. Now almost twenty years later it's not as great as I remember but it also hasn't aged as badly as I was expecting. The thing that struck me most was the heavy lines on the characters. The characters almost looked like a Hanna Barbara cartoon. They reminded me of the Superfriends or Space Ghost. There is an odd mix of poor quality drawings and some pretty compelling art. The rotoscoping is a neat technique and it makes for some good action scenes. And some of the background art is spectacular.

    The plot is paper thin but no worse then some live action films I've seen. The voice acting reminded me a lot of the first Heavy Metal movie.

    Fire and Ice is an interesting movie if you're a fan of Frank Frazetta or into fantasy and animation.

    The thing that makes this DVD worth the purchase is the documentary "Painting with Fire" about Frank Frazetta. When I was younger I had a few books of his works that I would memorize. His art meant a lot to me and his life is fascinating. I never realized how tough his early years were. You just assume a giant talent like this was getting rich right off the bat. It turns out he was struggling and some lucky breaks helped to launch his career. He's been through a lot of adversity but bares it with an upbeat optimism. After six strokes he had to learn to paint using his left hand.

    It means a lot when the comic greats like Bernie Wrightson, John Buscema, Dave Stevens, Neal Adams are gushing fanboys. Everyone interviewed has nothing but good things to say about him. He's apparently a good friend and great father.

    The inclusion of the documentary is a valuable bonus that makes the Fire and Ice DVD worth buying.
