Who would have thought that Wes Anderson's style would be great in an animated film? Or should I say that Anderson's style perfectly fits animation film? Really great and enjoyable animated film. Not to mention Anderson brought with him Streep and Clooney, how can this film be more beautiful?

Wes Anderson proves that he can translate his signature quirky visual style to other mediums, injecting vivacity and humor into this adaptation of Roald Dahl's book. The sarcastic humor and wit of the book is intact and the voice performances by an all-star cast are immersing. This is a new direction for Anderson, but a successful one.

One of the most creative book adaptations.

Fantastic Mr. Fox was a popular children's novel by Roald Dahl, and that's how it stayed: just a popular children's novel. Until Wes Anderson chose to make a film and combine the great characters Dahl created with his own quirky, colorful style.

There is not one boring moment in this movie, it is fascinating. The animation looks real, and it definitely has that signature Wes Anderson style going for it.
This movie has all the strong points that a children's movie should have to make it likable and appealing to adults, as well. Anderson knows how to do that. Everything leaps out at you, inside jokes and references are made, the dialogue is hilarious and just like its titular character, this movie is fantastic.
It's the word to describe it, because nothing is missing. Anderson and Noah...

Fun Dahl Adaptation

Roald Dahl has been adapted to the screen many a time with mixed results. This is probably my favorite film adaptation of one of his books.

Wes Anderson may not be the best choice to reproduce Dahl, but the evidence shows he is. He is able to recreate the dark humor that most other Dahl adaptations get down, but with more charm and whimsy along with it; it creates a good mix of dark, light and absurd.

Wes Anderson also does a great job of infusing his own style into the story. When Tim Burton adapts an already existing property, he sucks all of the style in the property that already existed and replaces it with his own, but Mr. Fox makes it obvious that Wes Anderson is much better at balancing the two. Wes Anderson has one of the most obvious in your face cinematic styles in m...

A Witty Treat

Stop motion is a curious art. It never looks as real as CGI, and it's not as fluid as CGI. Also, it's extremely difficult to master. In fact, one would wonder why anyone would bother making a stop motion movie, as opposed to a CGI movie. The reason, is that stop motion has an odd, old fashioned, hand made feel to it. And somehow, that feel has been captured and placed into this movie, and it's not just evident in the animation.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is inspired from Roald Dahl's picture book by the same name. The film follows the story of Mr. Fox, who starts stealing farmer's merchandise again, without telling his wife. Mr. Fox has been planning some "great heist," despite his promises to his wife, claiming he would quit. Soon, the three meanest farmers of them all (Farmers Boggis, Bunce,...
