Thief and the Cobbler on Youtube

Came across this while browsing youtube:

" From the three-time Academy Award winning animator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit ...

Restored version of Richard Williams' unfinished animated masterpiece, The Thief and the Cobbler.

Unofficial restoration by Garrett Gilchrist. This is not intended for profit, just a fanmade research project and tribute to this classic film.

The film was worked on for 26 years, with a team of master animators like Ken Harris and Art Babbit. This film inspired Disney's Aladdin. Ruined versions of it were released as Arabian Knight and The Princess and the Cobbler.

Silent Hill

Got to see Silent Hill this morning and was a trip. Finally someone got it right , everything that made the game great from the weird monsters to the tension to the flashlight is in the movie. And most importantly we finally get to see a horror movie rated R. It does not shy away from showing any of the gory stuff.

Highly recommended.
