Wednesday Movie Post

Today's review is about a movie that might not appeal to many but it's definitely an animation jewel, and the reason I say this is because it is an animation movie but not the same old computer animated characters but a type of animation with figurines hand carved with clay, and this wonderful movie is not other than
"Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit".

If you've never heard of this wonderful duet which is Wallace (as the leader and inventor) and Gromit (his loyal assistant and friend), you are definitely missing a lot. I was first introduced to them by my husband that have always liked them and has a few (maybe even all) of their episodes, which are mostly short films.

Anyway, back to the movie and the review. This one feature film is about Wallace & Gromit owning a very respectable and efficient pest control company (Anti-Pesto) that deals with pest control but in a humane way. But just days before the big vegetable competition in town, all of the crops are being affected by rabbits that are eating the competitors precious produce.

So that's when W&G had to come in and help, but by using one Wallace's many inventions things take a bad turn and they end up dealing with a were-rabbit (instead of a were-wolf, get it?).

I think this movie is very unique and the animation is awesome, it is very british but that gives it even more character. My favorite character by far is Gromit, I specially like it when he knitts, but I also love that he is a dog and can do anything humanly possible but talking.

Maybe another reason why I like this film so much is because I'm going through a very strong phase of Farmville addiction (in case you don't know this game it's a facebook thing), so I'm all about farming, vegetables, fruits, animals, crops... but that is just going to have to be left for another blog post, LOL!

I, too, am a Wallace and Gromit fan - but I will admit I haven't seen this one. The older my kids get, the less "cover" I have for seeing animated movies. I just need to come out of the closet, I guess. Thanks for the recommendation.
