Odds and Ends for 3-7-2006

Screenhead has done an excellent rundown of Orson Welles adverts, both real and from the much-loved show, The Critic. “Fine. Fine. No goblins.”

Speaking of adverts, here’s the Rolling Stones shilling musically for Rice Krispies. “Get that krackle outta my face, pally!”

And here’s the Cracking Contraptions animations from Wallace & Gromit: I post them here to celebrate Aardman winning the only award I gave a damn about the other night. If you only watch one of these shorts, make sure it’s “Shopper 13.”

Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) – Movie Review

Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit movie poster

Written by Bob Baker, Steve Box & Mark Burton, based on characters created by Nick Park
Directed by Steve Box & Nick Park
Starring the Voices of Peter Sallis, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Peter Kay, Nicholas Smith

My Advice: Don’t miss it.

Our heroes Wallace (Sallis) and Gromit have had many adventures in their time. They’ve gone to the moon, thwarted a criminal penguin, and broken up a sheep rustling ring. This time around they’ve created Anti-Pesto, a humane pest control service. A giant vegetable contest (a community tradition) is upcoming, and unless the rabbits can be kept under control, then all the massive veggies will get gnawed away to nothing. Wallace and Gromit are especially interested in a new client, the Lady Tottington (Carter), because keeping her prize veggies safe will be really great for business. Not to mention the fact that she’s quite the looker (by claymation and Wallace’s standards). However, there’s a new player on the scene…a terrifying, hulking creature that exists only to throw veggies down its giant gullet: the Were-Rabbit.
