4.0 out of 5 stars Uniquely Original but unfulfilled, 5 April 2008

This review is from: Hamilton Mattress [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
One of the most frustrating things in popular culture is when you find an idea that's genius and original, yet strangely unfulfilled. It's the type of feeling you get from watching Enter The Dragon or, more poiniently, reading Kublai Khan (from The Complete Poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge). 'Hamilton Mattress' fits almost exactly in this category.

The idea, ethos, design and animation are unique although the plot somehow doesn't gel correctly. If this one half hour episode was scripted by Nick Park or had been serialised, then it would fit in the realms of Wallace and Gromit and would have been 'fleshed out'.

As it is, this film is worth watching although it would have been better if it had been developed further, or if its qualities had been used elsewhere. It is suggested in the extras that more 'Hamilton Mattress''s may be filmed. Since it was done in 2001 I doubt it will be, but still - heres hoping!

I watched this when I was younger once and have never forgotten it. Simple yet brilliant. Funny and easy to follow, you cant help falling in love with the main character 'Hamilton Mattress' and his desire for a nice new pair of trousers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool!, 23 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Hamilton Mattress [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
An entertaining, funny, enjoyable little animation.

This could have been as popular as Wallace & Gromit, had the BBC not chosen to air it at some idiotic time and never repeat it.
