The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Something bunny is going on...
Cheese-loving eccentric Wallace and his cunning canine pal, Gromit, investigate a mystery in Nick Park's animated adventure, in which the lovable inventor and his intrepid pup run a business ridding the town of garden pests. Using only humane methods that turn their home into a halfway house for evicted vermin, the pair stumble upon a mystery involving a voracious vegetarian monster that threatens to ruin the annual veggie-growing contest.
Too often, when we wonder who the Greatest Living Englishman is, we forget that Nick Park asked Dreamworks for thirty million dollars to make an internationally-released feature-length film about marrow-growing contests in Lancashire and they said yes.
K so I didn't watch this entirely since my fuckin' internet kept dropping out while doing it with my friends over Rabbit (no pun intended) so I only saw about 75% of the film so fuck my life.
Anyway, movie itself is still pretty damn fantastic. It's one of those movies that constantly throws in joke after jokes in the backgrounds and foreground making it insanely rewarding to rewatch and catch on certain gags that you missed the first time.
Even now, over ten years since its release, I'm still finding new things to laugh at. I love "Wallace & Gromit" more than anything and this film is pretty much everyone involved with it working at top speed to create the…
i had a real review but now that i'm looking at this page what the fuck ? this movie is 11 years old ?? 2005 was 11 years ago ??? im old ???? we're all getting old ?????
Nick Park is an amazing director, and his full length feature debut captures all the joy and charm of the shorts, and manages to convincingly stretch it into feature-length material with a funny, creative and wildly entertaining story.
So what if it's a little predictable plot-wise, and the characters fall a little flat, it's the wonderfully animated set-pieces, the awesome camerawork and solid jokes that elevates this into something much better. I always scratch my head in fascination of how many of these scenes were made.
Top notch filmmaking!
Described by directors Nick Park & Steve Box as the first 'vegetarian horror movie', Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is about as delightful as frightener as you're ever likely to watch. Park & Box are of course being glib because if you live in the UK, you'll have surely been living under a rock if you've never heard of the titular duo - an eccentric Northern inventor and his anthropomorphic, intelligent dog, living in what has been described by Aardman Animations as inspired by 1950's Wigan with cobbled streets, old houses & quaint Northern folk. Aardman delivered a number of remarkable stop motion animation short films on British TV since 1990 which made their name & cemented Wallace & Gromit in modern popular…
Apart from the used technique, this is not only memorable for the amazing, inventive , vegetable-based jokes, but also for the impeccable voice acting and the loads of atmosphere (like the scenes in the woods) being created.
In the best Bigfoot tradition the monster isn't entirely shown in the beginning, but eventually, like King Kong or Godzilla, its rampage needs a personal touch to keep a close bond with the audience and to get rid of the common, golden-bullets shooting bad guy.
It may be 10 years old, but the humor, that's timeless.
Nothing amazing, but had all the lovable features of the rest of the Wallace & Gromit productions. Cute genius dog, funny contraptions, nice aesthetics.

Gets better with every watch.
I'm pretty biased towards this film because I love Wallace and Gromit. To be fair though, this is just an extended Wallace and Gromit cartoon, and it works in every way.
Es demasiado británica y maravillosa para este mundo.
in which gromit is, as usual, infinitely relatable
Was running out of Halloween movies to watch with Eddie. This has a Were-Rabbit so it kind of fit the bill. Really fun movie with an exciting and humorous ending.
Happy Halloween Letterboxd!!!
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
