Speak for yourself, loser. Personally, I try to go to films twice if the media company who makes it is evil, simply to off-set the impact of your boycott.

Back on topic:

Wallace and Grommit never did much for me, but "Chicken Run" was such a hilarious movie that I'm willing to give it another chance when the new film comes out.

A weak pun, made weaker by the fact that a "were-rabbit" would not be much of a threat to paralized people.

I've met Nick Park - he's from the same town as me (Preston, England) and when I was at the local college he came to talk to the students. He's the worlds most utterly boring talker, but was playing with plasticine while he talked and would occasionally throw a fully-formed Wallace or Gromit into the crowd. Anyways, my name is Sean, i'm from Preston, he named it after me dagnabbit!

Shaun the Sheep was actually invited to participate in the recently released "World of Warcraft" live action demo.

It's definitely Shaun - as in the Joy of Shaun [amazon.co.uk] . I have to confess to being a Shaun-worshipper. In our household there are three Shaunie soft toys, plus an array of other stuff like socks. If archaeologists uneathered my home they'd definitely think that Shaun was some sort of God or idol. Shaun rocks. Did I mention that I like Shaun?

I guess really though I'm more like Grommit in real life. I suppose being Shaun might be considered an aspirational thing if you're Grommit.

Remember that dell commercial, where the techie is whispering to the camera in front of a disassembled laptop?

You're that guy.

You might look at the douchebag boss with the coffee cup with disdain, as I do, but remember that he's the one fucking you in the ass, and the world always sides with the guy on top, as I do.

While I think it's cute that you think linux will be a viable desktop or that game designers actually pay attention to your concerns, I believe the time has come for you to ask yourselves why you've been involuntarily celibate for these last seventeen months. Because your urge to force computer preferences on the rest of the world is symptomatic of all that is broken with your personalities.

Microsoft is guilty of the same crime of trying to force their technology on the population, but they have money, and power, and many of them possess social skills requisite to being in big business. Linux fanatics on the other hand try to pull this and fall flat on their faces, because they aren't rich, they have no power, and their social skills prompt them to cry themselves to sleep in dark lonely corners.

Remember nerds- the rest of the world is that douchebag with the coffee cup, disapproving and scolding when you overstep your bounds. We might not lend ourselves well to sympathetic portrals in commercials and other media, but every night we can come home in a shiny expensive car, to a nice furnished apartment, and eat some pussy before going to bed. Our lives revolve around windsurfing or skiing with friends that you don't have, and some unfaithful extramarital sex on the side.

We laugh at you because you're different, you laugh at us because there's nothing else you can do.

Whenever I lay off employees, I always use pink slips. Last time I did it in person, I almost bit my tongue off trying to keep a straight face. Trust me, I don't remember you at all.

I love my job

I hear The Home Depot is hiring.

Finally, good non-CG animation (5, Interesting)

VolciMaster (821873) | more than 9 years ago | (#11913460)

The Wallace and Gromit series are fantastic, and I've been looking forward to a full-length movie ever since seeing The Wrong Trousers. Chicken Run was quite funny, but it was chickens, not our slightly dashing duo! If you've never seen good claymation, you should defintiely go rent/buy all of the W&G videos, and get a copy of Chicken Run also.

W&G is such a nice break from the (albeit quite good) CG animation movies of the past few years. Claymation requires so much handwork and attention to detail, that there are very few people who can do it, let alone do it well. The folks at Pixar et al are great at what they do, and they put in a lot of detail... but the computer rendering is also responsible for a bunch of the look. Here you have straight-up, old-fashioned hard work, care, and love on the part of the animators.

Re:Finally, good non-CG animation (5, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11913550)

Hey, be fair.

The visual presentation means a lot, but any truly great feature is made truly great by fantastic writing, characters and voices.

Both Pixar and the W&G crew have these going for them.

Re:Finally, good non-CG animation (3, Interesting)

VolciMaster (821873) | more than 9 years ago | (#11913902)

True, writing and characters are important, too. My main point was just that the W&G team has to spend a lot more time and effort in doing the stop-action clay filming than do the CG groups. They spend a lot of time, also (consider the Nemo toy in Boo's room in Monsters Inc), but it's time spent in a more technical fashion. The W&G group takes the stories and then personally animates everything about the scene. The CG outifts take stories, design the charcaters, and control points, and then let the computers animate everything. I agree that Pixar makes great movies, I've loved each of them, but they demand a very different level of care than the W&G films.

Playing devils advocate here, I just don't like to read these modern papers anymore...I much prefer when printing was done by a press, using moveable type. Or better yet, when pages were enscribed by monks. There's so much detail in the handiwork, and not a lot of people can do it now, let alone, do it well.

What we really have here is a niche medium.

Believe me, if there was a market for it, Pixar would/could create a "claymation" CG.
But then would it be used by the creators of W&G?

I must say I'm surprised that this is their first full-length feature. I remember, now, that the first three were only short films. But considering how well-known the pair are it's sort of amazing that they've never had a full-blown US cinematic release (Is it possible that one of the W&G films was shown as a short before a typical summer blockbuster? I don't remember.)

W&G first-timers (4, Interesting)

RobertB-DC (622190) | more than 9 years ago | (#11913478)

In January, as part of the USA Film Festival's [usafilmfestival.com] KidFilm (in Dallas), the "Animation Celebration" featured 10 Wallace & Gromit shorts, back-to-back-to-back. This was noted clearly in the program, but clearly many of the attendees didn't *read* the program -- probably the ones who came for the insipid Barbie Fairytopia movie.

We saw a short introduction (featuring a typical Wallace & Gromit contraption cracking an egg), then the first episode came and went. Then the intro started again, and the murmurs started. The third round saw louder mutterings. By the fifth round, there was scattered applause and mild catcalls. At seven or eight, many of the kids could be heard saying "why are they showing that again?" By the time the tenth episode came on the screen, there was general laughter from the entire crowd. When an 11th episode failed to appear, in favor of a longer Nick Park feature (Dogs & Cats, or something like that), I believe there was applause.

Several years ago, the early Simpsons shorts (from the Tracy Ullman show, before the series even started) were sprinkled throughout the Animation Celebration program. I still wonder if the organizers put the W&G shorts back-to-back just for artistic effect.

Haven't slashdotted Apple? (1, Offtopic)

Does it hurt your pride that you haven't slashdotted Apple by rushing to see the trailer? (It doesn't even appear to be an Akamai mirror)

I wonder if there is a hidden meaning in the penguin in "The Wrong Trousers". Something about Linux or something :-)

W&G DVDs (2, Interesting)

I'm just hoping that the movie brings the original 3 movies out on DVD again. Right now you have to pay $50 on eBay for that release.
Maybe it'll include the 10 shorts, that were developed in order for the animation team to get comfortable with the characters, as well.

Have there been any rumblings about a DVD release?

how stuff works! (1)

Well, not much meat in the trailer, but it's worth it just to see how it's all done! Wow! Fascinating to see the sets and the little clay figures. It really makes me appreciate the movie that much more.

Looking at Nick Park. That placid, cheerful face with the extremely plastic eyebrows. It's like he's spent so many hours manipulating his characters he's become one of them.

[tongueincheek]The Traditional Values Coalition has news that Wallace and Grommit are in league with the bestiality-agenda, trying to promote an immoral man-beast tolerance with all Americans.[/tongueincheek]

Did anyone notice one of the characters in the flick is called "PC McIntosh"? Cute
