After seeing this film yesterday i thought i might like to inform people about it.

Wallace is a peculiar person, and Gromit is an extraordinarily industrious dog. Through just three short films, they became internationally beloved stars and multi-Academy Award winners in the 1990s. And they are both plasticine. Now, ten years after their last adventure, they hit the big screen in their first feature film (not looking a day older).

Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) is a prodigious inventor, but he lacks marketing sense, so he is repeatedly devising new occupations by which he and Gromit can keep themselves in cheese and bones. After returning from their quest for cheese on the moon in A Grand Day Out (1989), the lads tried renting a room (with fateful results) in The Wrong Trousers (1993), and then became window washers in A Close Shave (1995). Now, they have formed Anti-Pesto, a humane pest-control operation.

Their business is bustling, because their community is brimming with rabbits keen on eating the prize vegetables the locals are growing for their annual competition. The problem with humanely trapping rabbits, however, is that there is nowhere to put them. They are all simply kept in Wallace

As much as I love Wallace and Gromit, and I do love them lots (I practically know their three shorts by heart), I just cannot say that it's the best movie of the year. If it would have been the only stop-animation feature to be released this year, I might have said that it was the best movie of the year. But the best movie of the year, in my opinion (so far, at least), is the other stop-animation film that was released this year: Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

I might have to disagree on that one. I haven't seen Wallace and Gromit, but The Corpse Bride was such a slow movie, it seemed almost an hour longer than it was. The idea was cute and so was the ending, but it was lacking in the middle. My girlfriend, who is a huge fan of Tim Burton's style and particularly Nightmare Before Christmas, thought the same. She even booed the music lol. I could be wrong though. Wallace and Gromit seemed to appeal much more to a younger audiance, not because of it's cartoon style, but the jokes in the previews seemed jejune. I just imagined I would be bored through it like I was during Madagascar. However, it did seem more "action packed," for lack of better words, than The Corpse Bride. Uhh... I watch a lot of cartoon movies. haha

Not all of the jokes were childish for example the one at the end wallace standing newd with a box over saying "May Contain Nuts".

You can hardly expect a five year old to understand that. :lol:

Then, my friend, your girlfriend is not a Tim Burton fan. Corpse Bride was tailor made for Tim Burton fans, so if you don't like it, you can hardly consider yourself one :P Personally, I don't see how someone can like The Nightmare Before Christmas and not like Corpse Bride. Corpse Bride is like Nightmare, but with better and smoother animation, better set and character design, a more focused story and plot, a deeper message and meaning, and a more satisfying ending (hard to achieve, as Nightmare's ending is quite happy and satisfying as it is). It's one of Tim's most melancholic movies, along with Edward Scissorhands - a word that has become synonymous with him. What more could you ask! And the music?! How can a Tim Burton fan boo Danny Elfman doing what he does best, breaking down some cool jazz? How can a Tim Burton fan boo Helena Bonham Carter singing (SINGING! who knew she could?!) her heart out in such a touching, melancholic piece? I don't have a problem that you two didn't enjoy the movie, to each his own, and everyone is entitled to his own opinion. But I don't see how a supposed Burton fan can not like Corpse Bride, when it has everything a Burton fan can ask for, and more?
