Being a W + G fan I awaited this latest adventure, A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH with much expectation. Whilst the general or overall effect of the animation is good, I don't think it will ever match the craftsmanship of the earlier works. The movie also felt as though it was too short, having said that, I'd want more if it were 2 hours long. This movie felt as if it had to be made for financial reasons, rather than with the earlier adventures, which felt that they were creations of love and desire. It's a fact that no-one can take away the artistry of the creators, it is the benchmark that all other animations are striving to achieve. I awarded this movie 3 out of 5 stars, whereas earlier movies would warrant 6 out of 5, seriously! An enjoyable tale with something for any member of the family - my 7 year old loves it. Pity some of the earlier W+G antics have been excluded.
