Wallace and Gromit shorts

A Grand Day Out with Wallace and Gromit
Wallace and Gromit in The Wrong Trousers
Wallace and Gromit in A Close Shave

I don’t see any need to review these separately.  They’re all pretty awesome.  Although “Grand Day Out” is a little rough around the edges, and sluggishly paced, I really dig the surreal vibe to it.  By “The Wrong Trousers”, the animation technique had been mastered, and so had the storytelling.  It’s my favorite of the three.  The way Park makes an expressionless penguin look menacing is amazing. “A Close Shave” is wonderful too, though, with some great gags (I love the subtle pun of naming the sheep “Shaun”).  Rating: 8 (Grand), 10 (Trousers), 9 (Shave).

I’m really ticked off right now because I had to spend most of my Friday night working, and will probably work most of Saturday and Sunday too.  Don’t these people know how many DVDs I have to watch?!
