Product Description

Millions of fans agree – no one makes animated mayhem like crackpot inventor Wallace and his faithful dog, Gromit. Join the Oscar®- winning sensations for four madcap adventures in their cheesiest, breeziest and funniest collection yet! Hang on for an out-of-this-world ride as Wallace’s mad craving for cheese leads to a space rocket adventure in A GRAND DAY OUT. In THE WRONG TROUSERS, Gromit smells something fishy after a penguin moves in and plots to make off with Wallace’s Techno-Trousers. Then it’s time for A CLOSE SHAVE as Wallace & Gromit™ get wrapped up in a sheep-rustling scheme. Finally, trouble rises after Wallace & Gromit start a bread- baking business and are ensnared in a murder mystery that becomes…A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH!

Looking for a fast way to earn dough, Wallace decides to make it. Armed with a batch of ovens, an army of robotic kneading arms and an old-fashioned windmill, Wallace & Gromit™ start "Top Bun,” their new bread-baking business. Sales rise quickly and Wallace falls head over buns in love with a seductive bread-industry icon, Piella Bakewell. But when bakers suddenly start disappearing, Gromit realizes that his master is in danger as he follows a twisting, turning trail of crumbs to solve a murder mystery that becomes…A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Collection September 26, 2009
By Daniel
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Update: This film has one big problem. The third film, A Close Shave is in the 16:9 format on this disc while the original was in 4:3. This means the original film has been cropped to fit a widescreen TV. Pretty upsetting that they wouldn't include the three original videos in their original form. The first two, A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers are in their original 4:3 format.

This is a great collection of the Wallace & Gromit films. The films all look excellent in HD and the behind the scenes features and commentary tracks are wonderful to listen to and really provide a lot of insight into the creation of the films.

For example, the commentary track for A Grand Day Out, the first film, talks about its production over about 6 years and the tricks that Nick used to film each shot. I'm pretty sure that these commentary tracks are taken from the DVD release, so they are nothing new if you have that version. The film also has several behind the scenes features which are also a lot of fun to watch and give good insight into the animation process, Nick Parks career, and the growth of the Wallace & Gromit franchise.

The packaging consists of a standard blu-ray case with a paper sleeve that has the same art as the case. There is no booklet with the film, just the disc.

I think the only thing missing from this collection is the full length feature film, but I think Wallace & Gromit works best in this shorter format.

I would recommend this collection to any Wallace & Gromit fan. The noticeable improvement in quality when viewed in HD and the behind the scenes and commentary tracks make it a joy to re-watch these excellent films and notice all the little details in the sets and animations.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent value for the Blu-Ray October 17, 2009
By Wally
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'll leave for others to talk about Wallace & Gromit themselves and focus here on the Blu-Ray offering.

There are four "movies" included on the disc. Each of these is about 30 minutes long. The first three were previously included on the DVD, "Wallace & Gromit in Three Amazing Adventures." Also included on the BR disc are the features that were on the DVD. New to this release are the short "A Matter of Loaf and Death," the episode of Shaun the Sheep, "Off the Baa!," and at least one of the short features. A game demo is also included, but you need a BR player on your computer (PCs only) to play it. The first two features are full frame and the second two are widescreen. The features all look great on BR (though I don't know if they were remastered for this release).

The disc doesn't include "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit," so one might quibble that it doesn't include all the W&G material, but it does include all the shorts (including the two that won Academy Awards).

Overall, I thought this was a very good presentation for a very funny duo and well worth the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great films, shameless presentation September 26, 2009
Forget this disappointing release and stick with "Three Amazing Adventures." Not only are the first three W&G films cropped down to 1:33 full-frame, but the new short (yes, it's a 30-minute short, not the 87-minute "feature-length" film advertized (they apparently included the extras in the timing)), filmed and released in widescreen, is likewise cropped to full-frame. This is unforgiveable treatment of classic material. A pox on the corporate suits who plotted this rip-off.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a shame! November 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nevermind the full screen presentation of the first three shorts, as far as I know they do not exist in another aspect ratio. But that they include the fourth short only in a pan&scan version when even the making-of feature is presented in 16:9 - what a shame! All those commercials that can only be skipped one after the other and an "autoplay" feature that appears to be running even if you unselect it, they just come on top of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic set on blu-ray! September 23, 2009
I have always been a fan of the intelligent wit of Wallace and his faithful dog Gromit. I did not expect to see the series on blu-ray, but it is a joy that we now have 4 of their exploits on high definition. I had to travel over 30 miles to find a store (Best Buy) with the item in stock and was able to price match Wal-Mart, making each movie just $5.

I've watched two of the films so far (A Close Shave and A Matter of Loaf and death) and Wallace and Gromit has never looked or sounded better than on blu-ray. I can give a hearty thumbs up on this collection - it is well worth owning.

Some items of note: This is a 1 disc blu-ray release, not 4 discs (which would not make any sense). This collection is also not "complete". We are missing Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Curse of the Were Rabbit has to be their best film, so it is sad that it is not included here. The films we do get are great.

Movie: 5.0/5.0
Video: 4.5/5.0
Audio: 4.0/5.0
Extras: 3.0/5.0
Overall: 4.5/5.0

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this unless you love commercials November 14, 2009
By K. Wood
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We bought this set to replace a single CD of the 3 original short films, which got scratched. The single CD version has no commercials at the beginning, so you can navigate pretty quickly to the actual film you want to see.

This set has each film on a different disk, and each disk has about 5 minutes or more of commercials before you can view anything else. These include a promo for some kind of Wallace and Gromit game, a Saun the Sheep video, another W&G video _which is included in the set_, a Bob the Builder video, and a Thomas the Tank Engine commercial. And I may have forgotten some others....

So, if you don't have kids, or don't mind being harassed to buy yet more videos and games and toys every time you want to watch Wallace and Gromit, this set should be fine to you.

Otherwise, DON'T BUY IT!
