  • Babe (1995)

FP016: “That’ll do, Pig.”

From George Miller, the creator of Mad Max and The Road Warrior comes Babe, a film without a single truck chase or sharp-edged boomerang (although it does have at least one feral child)! Arguably the best talking pig movie ever, it was one of the first to successfully mix traditional puppetry, animatronics, computer animation AND actual live animals to tell this heart-warming but not mushy or cloying story of a young pig’s adventures on the Hogget’s farm. Top it off with a score built around Camille Saint-Säens’ beautiful Third Symphony and you have a perfect film the whole family can treasure!

NB: Sorry, no more hams to give away. The only hams left are the ones behind the mike!
