Creature Comforts: Part Two DVD Review
SRP: £15.99

Picture

Framed at 1.85:1 and presented in anamorphic widescreen, the video transfer is generally very good. With no signs of compression artefacts and barely a hint of edge enhancement, the print is sharp and clean, with bold colours and solid blacks. Edges are sharp and crisp, and reveal well the plasticine roots of the animation.

Sound

A largely uninspiring affair, we only have a 2.0 Dolby Digital mix on offer but the goods are adequately delivered. Essential being a dialogue-only presentation, vocals are locked to the centre channel and come through cleanly and crisply, with a handful of ambient effects supported in the remaining front channels. Surround usage is largely non-existent, but then this is a release that hardly cries out for spectacular sound treatment. It does what it needs to, and nothing more.

Extras

First up is the “favourite clips” featurette, where the director talks us through his favourite clips (especially some of the hilarious background actions of supporting characters), along with how some of the scenes came about.

Next up is a collection of the familiar TV adverts including the National TV award clips; included here are all the PG Tips ads and the ones which started them all....Heat Electric (and don't they look old now!).

Probably the most interesting extra is the “Bringing Creature Comforts to Life” feature, which is an excellent piece, and really shows the amount of work and effort that goes into making even the shortest piece of animation; there are some interesting bits in here, including side-by-side comparisons of the “live storyboards” of the actors alongside the finished animation. Lastly we have a passable interactive game, and some DVD-rom content.

Overall this is an adequate collection of extras, which will certainly be of interest to fans of animation in general and especially those who hold the likes of Wallace And Gromit close to their hearts.
Creature Comforts: Part Two
An entertaining main feature is wrapped up with a good video presentation and reasonable extras - well worth a look if you're a fan of this type of animation.
