I'm off work with a stinker of a cold so I thought I'd try and finish off the DVD review of this movie to save me from dying of boredom, having to stay indoors. It'd been put on hold for the last couple of weeks due to me falling over most nights after spending the day in our old work building lugging all the technology and computing kit down to be ready for shipping off to storage or the recyclers.
Anyway, this is Aardman Animation's much loved and multi-award winning duo of Wallace & Gromit starring in an all new comedy adventure and their first full-length feature film...
Wallace & Gromit have hung up their window washing cloths and are now the proud proprietors of Anti-Pesto, a humane pest control business and with the Annual Giant Vegetable Competition coming up in a few days, they're up to their ears in work and rabbits. Wallace is inspired to sort the rabbit problem out permanently by using his Mind-O-Matic device to brainwash the rabbits but it doesn't quite work out how he intended and soon a huge Brassica munching beast begins raiding the townfolk's beloved garden plots at night.
This is truly an excellent movie and it's well complemented by this DVD but if you need more than that, then you can read my full review on DVD Lard. Nice to see that the directors, Nick Park and Steve Box, won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year for it as well, especially against such other strong nominees like Hayao Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.
