Grandstand Bat and Ball
25 August 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I hate to say it , but this is my least fav McLaren of films , he walks on and places a small white ball in the centre of the screen , it slowly darts off and when it hits the sides of the screen it divides (with a great static sound though) , each time it divides and the divisions divide etc , you get the picture. Dont get me wrong on a good day I like it , but it cold be a few minutes shorter , minor quibbles but its not one of his best , but even that makes it head and shoulders above a large part of the animation genre. It is a grander version of the old Grandstand Bat and Ball video game none the less.
