The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
Oooh I do like a bit of Wallace and Gromit
Wallace and Gromit. The pair has been adored by the British nation since they first arrived on our TV screens in the early 90s. Wallace, the cheese-loving eccentric inventor and his genius canine companion who never says a word are the 'pair that started it all' for director Nick Park, director of Chicken Run and three times Oscar-winner. This movie is the first ever full-length Wallace and Gromit film, and it certainly will not disappoint fans of the duo.
The movie expands on the local neighbourhood of West Wallaby Street and beyond, introducing new characters never before seen, notably PC Mackintosh voiced by the British comic legend Peter Kay, and reverend Clement Hedges voiced by Are You Being Served's Nicholas Smith. However, the two star names and star performances are Helena Bonham Carter as the vegetable-mad aristocrat and new love interest for Wallace, Lady Tottington, and the brilliantly versatile Ralph Fiennes as the baddie, the 'no-nonsense' huntsman Victor Quartermaine.
The key to all Aardman films and their distinctly British humour is to always watch what is happening in the background this film is no exception. The film gets funnier every time you watch it as you always spot new meanings in what the characters are doing, what they're standing in front of, or how they're positioned. Aardman fully deserve another Oscar with this hilarious spoof-filled outing. Better than Chicken Run, they only continue to improve. Enjoyable for all ages.
Himalaya with Michael Palin (2004)
A very REAL documentary
Michael Palin's comic genius is rarely disputed, but something he is equally good at and less well known for is his ability with people, no matter what their nationality, language, religion, or culture.
In this documentary series Palin travels the Himalaya, and in the process meets many different people, from Royals and Ministers to ordinary shepherds, and even the Dalai Lama. On his journey through visually stunning landscape, he shows the lives of those whose livelihoods depend on the mountains of the Himalaya. It is difficult not to be enthralled and amused with every new country he visits.
Palin's respect for others and ability to laugh at his own way of living makes Himalaya a worthwhile documentary with real impact. Excellent.
