We're heading back to the early 90s to review yet another film about saving the earth. This time it's the 1992 animated film FernGully: The Last Rainforest.

Highlights

  • Nerdy Couch Discussion: Environmentalism in animated films.
  • Why so many animated films about environmentalist/conservation messages?
  • Main Discussion: FernGullyThe Last Rainforest (1992)
  • This movie isn't quite bad! It's actually all right!
  • A little history, box office results and more fun facts!
  • Gotta love the bodacious babe, the red-dress fairy herself Crysta! Gotta love the red-headed mullet guy fairy.
  • Music is neither good nor memorable.
  • Batty is a boring character. Not really even the amazing Robin Williams can save him. His dated 90s rap is horrible.
  • Hexxus is a great villain. Definitely wins the award for creepiest villain. Talk about GREAT animation!
