Individual Entry


100% genuine animation!


We watched the Blu-ray release of Ratatouille on the wall this evening. Given that we decided not to see it at the cinema, due to the fact that Jamie Oliver overdubbed a character for the UK release (an annoying trend with CGI movies that seems to have started with Shrek 2, getting British celebrities and other non-entities to replace the voices of minor characters, presumably because all the kids will say “Hey, mummy, I want to see Shrek 2! It’s got Jonathan Ross and Kate Thornton’s voices in it for ten whole seconds!”), this was the closest we were able to get to a genuine theatrical screening of the film, and I must say it definitely benefits from the big(gish) screen treatment. I also spotted the image below during the end credits crawl, and it certainly make me chortle.

Quality assurance guarantee
