    Omg, what part wasn't my favorite?

    I loved all of them. I especially liked all the parts where the little snail things would sing for whatever reason.

    Nope, haven't seen the movie, but I really liked Aardman studios back when they were more low-key....back in the good ol' Wallace and Gromit days (though I really liked Curse of the Were-Rabbit). There was such a quick period though where stop-motion animation was the most popular form of animation and everyone was sort of jumping on board.

    I mean, despite having done many stop-motion films and shorts, Aardman studios was fairly small, but North America got hit by the British fever back in the mid 90's, so we had Mr. Bean, the Vicar of Dibley, etc, coming in and whatnot, which also brought along Wallace and Gromit.

    Dreamworks (Disney), distributed 'Chicken Run,' which did fairly well at the box office, so they stuck with Aardman because of the popularity of stop-motion at the time (and because it made them some moolah), but right on the heels of 'Chicken Run' you had Shrek, which turned the tide for CG animation.

    And of course, as we can see in every single animated movie preview now, CG has clearly taken over as the leading animation style, which effectively killed stop-motion as a mainstream medium (though still very stylish for amateur and indie animation). Computer animation requires far less time to make, which means less money is needed to fund, which pretty much guarantees that money will be made for the company. I mean, they're even popping out straight-to-video/dvd CG animation movies, and mass marketing it. Sure, that happened with traditional animation (hand drawn/cell), but you could easily tell the difference between a theatrical release animation, and a straight to video.......Now they just pop them out 90 come 100 km.

    As for Aardman, after Chicken Run, the next big thing from them was Wallace and Gromit Curse of the Were-Rabbit, which tanked (too british for north american audiences, and stop-motion was out of style)....and finally, Aardman made 'Flushed Away,' and kept the same character styling, but switched to CG.

    I haven't seen the movie, but Flushed Away apparently didn't do well at the box office, so Dreamworks terminated their deal with Aardman studios.....and now Aardman I suppose is forced to go back to small-time animation again, which is a shame because it's kind of like watching something crumble to pieces....Kind of like how they'll always have that dent in their self-esteem about how they made it to hollywood, but everything worked to their disadvantage?

    You have a point about that, all these films like this one, their eye's are too close together, lol I like saying that, came from chicken run, they had some good voice acters on the movie too.

    Yeah, Nick Parks is the guy who made Wallace and Gromit, but he joined Aardman Studies after it had been set up. Aardman had been doing animation for awhile before Nick Parks came on board.

    But it was Wallace and Gromit that really shined for Aardman Studios, and so Nick Park's character style become the signature for Aardman. It's kind of like how you can tell who makes a film simply by looking how the animation is done (moreso with regular drawn animation). Each company has it's own specific style, and you can notice differences between Disney movies for example and a Don Bluth film (Don Bluth worked at Disney for awhile though).

    Sometimes those guys can be easy just to lose a job or quit, but other people like mel gibson or other actors like, Ian Mickengly (if I spelled it right) was the voice of the toad and the guy from Godzilla the french spy, La frog were pretty much the funny guys on the movie, I don't the idea that Roddy and Rita were suppose to kiss instead is show Roddy kissed the married fat girl lol.
