Wallce & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit
Simply brilliant. Wallace & Gromit have always been a lot of fun, but taken to the big screen and expanded, it is nothing short of pure delight. Frankly, I have to admire Dreamworks for teaming up with Aardman on their stop animation projects. In an era where fancy computer graphics dominate the animation realm, seeing something as traditional as stop animation done to such perfection is a refreshing change of pace. Having 2 of these kinds of films in one year (Corpse Bride being the other) is rather unusual. This film is better than Corpse Bride. It’s cute, fun, clever, razor sharp with dialog and reactions, and pushes the limits of dead pan jokes. In the world of Aardman animation, the more dry and dead pan the joke, the better. Everything about this movie just works, from the writing to the voice performances to the animation to Julian Nott’s joyous and fun music score. Drag the whole family out to this one.
