Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection

 (TV) (1989-2008)

Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

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!"

For more about Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection and the Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray release, see Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fans of the impetuous inventor and his canine companion will be thrilled by the excellent video treatment given to the four Wallace & Gromit shorts. Each is presented in its original aspect ration—A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers in 1.33:1, A Close Shave in 1.66:1, and A Matter of Loaf and Death in 1.78:1—and each is given a brilliantly detailed 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. Of course, there are some definite differences in the video quality between films, but all of the transfers are splendidly true to source. A Grand Day Out shows its age and budget with a slightly softer, grainier look, while A Matter of Loaf and Death has a glossier appearance from being the first Wallace & Gromit short shot digitally, using professional still cameras. The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave look the most similar, with a clean, crisp but undeniably filmic quality.

Apart from the age and technology-related differences, the transfers have a lot in common. All of the films are sharp and well-defined, looking better than ever in high definition. You can make out every thumbprint impressed on the plasticine characters and every detail in the brilliant model work. The colors of the warm, nostalgic palette are strong and stable, and the perfectly balanced black levels give the image keen contrast and an almost tangible presence. There were times when I felt like I could reach out and squeeze Wallace's head. That said, there are a few slight issues that need to be addressed. While standing close to my screen and examining the image, I noticed some occasional horizontal motion lines on the edges of moving characters— mostly during the first three films. Sitting a reasonable distance away, though, I didn't notice this at all. However, in A Matter of Loaf and Death—otherwise the sharpest and most vivid of the films—you'll definitely notice a shimmering moiré effect on certain fine textures, like the cloth of a baker's apron and the thin weft of canvas flour bags. I also caught some occasional aliasing on road surfaces, rooftops, and in the crack between the bottom of a door and the floor. Aside from these small quibbles, I was entirely enamored with the image. Cracking job on this release, Lionsgate.


Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There was some speculation about the audio mixes in this collection, but rest assured, each film has been christened with an uncompressed LPCM 5.1 surround track, as well as a 2.0 LPCM mixdown and the expected Dolby Digital 5.1 offering. I compared tracks on all of the films, and my findings were universal. Obviously, stick with the PCM 5.1 tracks if you can. The Dolby Digital mixes are acceptable, but you can hear the compression in more muffled voices and a thinner range. The PCM 5.1 tracks, on the other hand, are startlingly clear and more bombastic than you might expect. The audio definitely becomes more involved and active with each subsequent film, but even A Grand Day Out sounds great, with a surprising amount of LFE engagement and a wonderfully full score. Some of the sound effects are a little dodgy, but that's all part of the charm. The later films feature lots of activity in the rear channels—thunder ripples and rolls, out-of-frame voices call out, and there are plenty of subtle cross-speaker movements. There's even a nice spread between the front channels, and you'll notice loads of pans and directional sounds. Dialogue throughout is detailed and clear. Finally, if you don't have a surround set-up, the LPCM 2.0 mix for each film is quite good, managing a fine sense of clarity despite the clutter.
