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…

FANTASTIC MR. FOX

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!

HAHA.

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.

ROALD DAHL,

i love you.

I actually do.

His books were my FAVOURITE when I was growing up

    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!
