Don't worry, I'll fix this!

I watched Curse of the Were-rabbit again recently.  Hilarious stuff.

Wrooooong threaaaaaaaaaad?

Wow. I just reread the poll...I feel not so smart.

Wallace and Gromit creeped me out as a kid. Clay animation never suited me. Not sure why. But Chicken Run is a pretty good movie.

It was good, like I expected. Always a quality duo...

Chicken Run was nice, haven't seen it recently, gotta check how it's aged.

Saw a Matter of Loaf and Death today. Good, but not a patch on the wrong trousers.

The Wrong Trousers was perfect so they don't need patching tongue

I agree that the latest wasn't as good, I still enjoyed it though smile

Meh. I couldn't be bothered paying for something I'd rarely use.
On the other hand, I have 150GB a month and have to use it all some how. So downloading stuff and crap is high on my list, and then I at least have stuff and crap to watch when I want to.
No waiting for stupid tv to show me something I already have.

Bumping yet again an old thread. "The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists" (what's called "The Pirates: Band of Misfits" here in the US), anyone? I see from a lot of user reviews on various American sites that it didn't seem to resonate with people here. But I loved it. I want Polly the dodo as a pet. Too bad her kind is extinct. Anyone else love this movie?

Holy crap, I didn't even realize we had a thread for Aardman films. That's either an indication of how old it is, or how senile I am...

I haven't seen Pirates, but since David Tennant was a VA, I was vaguely interested in it. I just know I've basically seen just one of their films, Flushed Away, which was an alright movie I guess, but nothing really spectacular. Have a poster of it on my wall for no raisin. It was free, sue my ass.

It had the 'band of misfits' title here in New Zealand as well. I saw it but can't say that I thought it was all that great. (Though I am going to buy the DVD in a few weeks so who knows, maybe it will have grown on me.) At present I like it better than A Close Shave but not as much as the rest of Aardman's works.

An example of what didn't quite work for me was the Queen's reason for hating pirates so much. It worked well enough in Blue Sky's Robots but here just feels lazy and arbitrary.

Strangely, I could see more points to criticize in Arthur Christmas than in Pirates yet I liked the former much more. (And I'm gutted that it isn't coming out on DVD/blueray till next Christmas!)

Yeah, Pirates offered nothing above the standard of an average Satuday morning cartoon. Not bad, but average at best.
