Fantastic Mr. Fox

Excuse me? Are you cussin with me?

I think, no wait, I know that Wes Anderson has created one of the most beautifully-crafted films, like ever. I am actually in love with…


It is an incredible film.

George Clooney

Meryl Streep

Jason Schwartzman

Bill Murray

Owen Wilson

Willem Dafoe

Helen McCrory

Throw in the fact that it’s a wonderfully animated stop-motion film.

A great script.

There are some amazing characteristics of the characters, i.e. the way they eat!


I REALLY want this to win the Oscar for ‘Best Animated Film’. I’ve seen “Up”, and whilst good, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is so innovative and quirky and incredible – did I say that already!?

I read a sad, but most likely true article in the LA times about the probability of “Up” winning and “Fox” missing out – as the Academy are much more likely to back a box-office hit than a film that did not sell particularly well….which leads me to my next point that the trailer for Fox is not a just representation of the real TREASURE that the film is. I didn’t ever think it was going to be as good as it was from seeing the trailer.

It is actually so GOOD.


i love you.

I actually do.

His books were my FAVOURITE when I was growing up

HECK. They still are among my favourites.

The Witches. James and the Giant Peach

The Twits. Matilda.

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

    It’s a shame you haven’t mentioned any of Wes’s other films – which were decidedly less well known than these – yet you go on about this missing out because of a poor box office performance.

    Before you sing praises of Wes check out The Darjeeling Ltd, Bottle Rocket, The Life Aquatic, Rushmore…

  2. I love The Darjeeling Ltd + the short film that precedes it Hotel Chevalier…I’ve yet to see Life Aquatic, but am a fan of The Royal Tenenbaums, Bottle Rocket…

    Mr Anderson always serves up something great. No doubt about that, I was just pointing out that it’s sad that this film didn’t do nearly as well as it should have. It’s so good. That’s not to say that it’s too late – everyone should still see this!
