W&G LoafThe new “Wallace & Gromit” outing “A Matter of Loaf and Death” will have to sit towards the bottom of the W&G library.  The spark of originality and adventure that has often worked wonders in this series is curiously missing.  There’s a murderer of bakers loose in the city.  Wallace is now running a bakery.  He runs into a big woman who used to be the skinny spokeswoman for a bakery.  Guess what happens?   The lack of initiative here is surprising considering the track record of creator Nick Park.  I guess they felt the need to get W & G back on the market after an absence of several years but there’s little here that warranted the effort.  It’s a cute enough little entry into the now lengthy history of these two stop motion icons, but far from memorable.
