📺 How Good Was it Really: Wallace and Gromit 📺

Don’t have the league table to hand it’s on my work computer, soz

WALLACE AND GROMIT!

Sure they’re short films but they were on TV so I feel like it’s fair to discuss them here.

and finally just for fun, it won’t be counted towards the league table because of course it is a feature film and therefore not eligible, and we want to keep this thing rigid and scientific, but…

Feel like my whole worldview was twisted slightly by how great The Wrong Trousers was. The bit where he puts the glove on his head to become a chicken.

If I think about Wallace and Gromit for too long I get all teary because it’s so lovely and great :sob: :heart:
Also their favourite cheese is my favourite cheese too, and it’s what the moon is made out of
Would get the moon robot tattooed on me tbf

Same. Absolute perfect animation, comedy and stories. Could watch them on repeat forever and remain happy.

First two are about the most solid-gold 5/5s you could ever find imho. Unless you just don’t like stop motion then everything about them is perfection. I probably use “Cheeeeese Gromit!” more than any other catchphrase.

4/5 to everything else as they just don’t have the same emotional impact for me, but they’re obviously much better than most 4/5 things.

could probably use the same reasoning for everything post Wrong Trousers but nah, 5s all round, it is wonderful

honestly one of the best scenes in cinema history

I gave the first one a 4/5 because the less refined animation irritates me at times.

It’s a good thing you left the country frankly

If he’d had one poll for it all it would have been 5 but this is like marking individual Wire seasons.

Yeah this is one of those things where it almost makes me want to cry thinking about how perfect it is. There’s a select handful of songs, books, episodes etc that do that to me and this is absolutely at the top of that pile. It’s not sad at all, it’s just … being faced with something as joyous and complete and well rounded as this I think want to laugh and applaud and cry and hug people and jkhkfspo
