Millions of years after nuclear war warps the Earth, two magical brothers fight for supremacy. Their battle is filled with faeries, robotic assassins, gun-wielding mutants, and funk music. Such is the conceit of 1977's Wizards, today's Sunday Matinee selection.
Wizards, which preceded Bakshi's Lord of the Rings, was initially named War Wizards until George Lucas asked Bakshi to change the name — Lucas wished to avoid conflict with Star Wars and allowed Mark Hamill to record a voice for the film in exchange. The film is a crazed brew of rotoscoped animations, swords'n'sorcery hijinks, and that 1970s wacky post-apocalyptic vibe that will remind you of things like Killraven and Kamandi. Also, I like the fact that World War II footage has survived several million years. All in all, it's classic Bakshi animation and a fun way to spend a lazy Sunday. You can watch the film on Youtube here.
