CRACKING BARGAIN, GROMIT!!!!!

"Wallace & Gromit 2 DVD Cracking Collector's Set is a real bargain for all wensleydale fans!! This cracking dvd set contains "Three amazing adventures" and the latest full length feature "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit". Both of these titles are available separately too but this is a great bargain for those who are yet to bring wallace and gromit home!
PLEASE BE AWARE, THIS SET INCLUDES THE FULLSCREEN EDITION OF THE FILM "CURSE OF THE WERERABBIT"! OTHER THREE WALLACE AND GROMIT SHORTS WHICH APPEAR ON THE OTHER DISC WERE FILMED IN FULLSCREEN ASPECT ONLY!
WALLACE AND GROMIT IN THREE AMAZING ADVENTURES:
Wallace and gromit and its creator Nick park need no introduction. these 3 wallace and gromit films, involving wallace and his faithful and brainy dog gromit, turned out to be a global phenomenon, not to mention those three well deserved academy awards Nick park won for his exceptional talent in claymation!! All three wallace and gromit films ("a grand day out", "the wrong trousers" and "a close shave") were nominated for oscars with the latter two actually winning it. Not to mention here, the rare distinction Nick park enjoys, being the only animator whose two films ("a grand day out" and "creature comforts") were nominated in the same category, same year with "creature comforts" winning!! ever since, these films have won Nick park and aardman studios countless awards the world over. By far wallace and gromit remains the best claymation work ever not just for its amazing quality of animation but for the equally marvelous storytelling and emotinal depth it has!
Wallace and gromit has seen 2 dvd releases in US so far. the first one being a fox release and the second one from warner bros which had a great amount of extras on the same disc. Both these dvds are out of stock now and are extremely hard to get.
Thanks to dreamworks, those who missed out on the previous two dvds have a reason to cherish now. Once again, all three wallace and gromit films will be available on dvd. here's what you can look forward to in this release:
1. All three wallace and gromit films (including "A GRAND DAY OUT", "THE WRONG TROUSERS" and "A CLOSE SHAVE" with English 2.0 dolby digital surround and French 2.0 mono)
2. never before on dvd 10 cracking contraptions, involving wallace and gromit-
the turbo diner
the bullyproof vest
the 525 crackervac
a christmas cardomatic
(few of the above said films were available on the net for quite sometime)
3. wallace and gromit:the curse of the wererabbit- sneak preview of the acclaimed wallace and gromit first feature film.
4. cracking contraptions-behind the scenes
5. shorts....and more
Please be informed, this disc does contain all three highly acclaimed wallace and gromit shorts, however, all the great behind the scenes and other extra stuff which was available on the old warner disc is missing here.
CURSE OF THE WERERABBIT:
"Wallace & Gromit:Curse of the wererabbit" is the highly anticipated first full length feature involving Wallace and his brainy canine companion Gromit. Its a dream come true for all the fans around the world who have been expecting their favourite characters on silver screen for a long time.
In "Curse of the wererabbit", a vegetable guzzling "monster' is on the verge of spoiling the giant vegetable competition organised by Lady Tottington and only wallace and gromit can save the day now. Nick Park has remained faithful to the characterisations and followed the same trend which w&g is known for. New adventure, few more amazing inventions, more new characters, new circumstances, more suspense but same old British flavour, feel and charm...W&G first feature is surely a winner. Those familiar with "King Kong", "Jaws" and other Hitchcock films will enjoy the spoof and occasional references more!
Wallace & Gromit:Curse of the wererabbit disc will be loaded with all these extras:
1. English & French DD5.1 Surround
2. English & Spanish DD2.0 Stereo
3. English SDH, English, French and Spanish subtitles

Amazing Bargain, But No Widescreen Set????

"I agree that you can't get a better bargain than this 2-CD set, but the format above is listed as "full screen", and Amazon is not listing any 2-CD set with the same content and a widescreen version of the feature film. Why not????????????????"

"I agree with all the others, PLEASE offer "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" in its original Widescreen. The "Three Amazing Adventures" are correctly 4:3 in Fullscreen, but the movie and all the hardwork that was put into it deserves to be all visible, and enjoyed in the way it was made. I guess I have to buy both titles separately..."
Collectors, this isn't the W&G you're looking for

"Unfortunately this set as others have said is full screen only. If you are a completist, and already have the original 3 adventures, the UK 2 disc-edition has the extras you're looking for. For US audience, the documentaries are available as part of a 2 disc exclusive available at another retailer (Wal-Mart), the two discs being "Curse of the Were Rabbit" (full or widescreen) along with "Gromit's Tail Waggin DVD". Contents of Gromit's Tail Waggin DVD: "10 Cracking Contraptions", Making of the Were-Rabbit", "The Amazing World of Wallace & Gromit", "Gromit's Favorite Scenes", "Learn to Draw Gromit", "Gromit-Cam", activity sheets."
