A Fun Movie

Yes, it has been a long while since my last post. Things have been hectic these past few weeks. What with work actually picking up, going to a few job interviews, and a select few other things that have been occupying my mind (mainly just one, but there are others). So, to make this short, it is my fault for forgetting to write. Actually the only way I remembered is talking to someone last night who reminded me that I need to add another entry. Here it is.

Last night me and a few other people went to see Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Overall a funny, entertaining, good for everyone movie. The director was aiming for a movie that gave everyone enjoyment and I think that the succeeded. It also helps that the creator is British and there is much British humor in it (I do love me some British humor!). It is not top-notch animation (it never tries) but it is no matter, the movie is still excellent. If you liked Chicken Run (the clay animation movie about the chickens trying to escape - parody of The Great Escape) then you will like this movie a lot.

What also made this movie, extra great was the group of people that I went with. It is one of those movies that is good by itself, but if seen with a nice group of people, makes it so much better. Its great when there arer people around you who get the same jokes and it just makes you laugh that much harder (esp. when they have the same sense of humor). Sort of like The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, not a great move by itself, but when seen with the right people and if you are in the right mood, can be one of the funniest things that you will see. Last night I was in the mood, had the right sort of people around, and it ended up being a hysterical movie.

I'll give a brief summary of the movie, one that will not ruin anything if you want to see it. Wallace and Gromit are a man/dog duo who protect people's gardens from pests. When a monster were-rabbit begins ravaging the town, it is up to them to solve it. Doesn't sound like a winner, but the plot is coherent and it fits well with the modd the movie sets. The only potential downside to this movie, like what many other British movies have, is there is a few cases of innuendo. It was nothing bad (very tame in British standards) and I highly doubt any children will pick up on any of it, just something to know. I think it is a family movie and one that people of all ages will enjoy. Just get a good group of friends together and go watch this movie. Don't look for a movie with an in-depth plot or something that will be intellectually stimulating, because you will not be satisfied when you leave. Just expect an entertaining, funny movie and you will leave the theatre very satisfied.
