The latest adventure starring Wallace and Gromit joins three modest charmers and one brashly funny attack on corporations

I hate the stereotype that animation is for funny stories while the serious stuff should be reserved for live action, but apparently the voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences embrace it.

A staple of Oscar season for the past five years, Shorts International and Magnolia bring back the Oscar nominated animated and live action contenders in a program that clearly proves the most inventive work in the short form.

The animated films are on much more solid ground. All five of these are worthwhile.

These film gems represent the cream of the crop from around the world. They all have in common the amazing way that a complete story arc comes to fruition in a brief amount of time. The more impressive collection resides on the animated side.

It's worth buying a ticket for Wallace and Gromit alone.

The animated short films are each lively and imaginative in their own unique ways...The most witty, clever and poignant live-action short [is] Miracle Fish.

[The Lady and the Reaper] moves beyond its single joke and into something beautifully surreal, like an extra-crazy Chuck Jones chase cartoon.

The Oscar nominee "Logorama" seems the sort of cleverness conjured by a room full of avid, if cynical consumers, fast and perverse, sorta dark and delightful.
