This actually looks pretty good, but what it has to do with Roald Dahl is beyond me.
Dahl wrote the book that the film is based on, which is also called "Fantastic Mr. Fox".
Bear in mind the film focuses far more on the titular character's relationships with the other characters than the book did.
This is Wes Anderson's true calling, it's a wildly successful film. Tim Burton needs to hang up his Robert Smith haired hat in shame.
I watched Transformers 3 and this movie the same day, so I had the worst 2 movie hours all year followed by the 5 best(fox hours)
Very good film. Remember when a bunch of poetv idiots jumped on the "Wes Anderson sucks, this sucks" bandwagon? Yeah, good times. Not that I am a Wes Anderson fan, but it definitely seemed pre-mature.
It's totally true! His twee little flourishes work here.
Also, this film annoys the hell of out John Kricfalusi, who has devoted multiple blog posts to hating it, so there's one more reason to love it.
Please direct me to these blog posts, cd. I love me some John K crazy. It's just so irrational and bizarre.
YAAYY thank you so much! I have quite a few hilarious John K meltdowns bookmarked, but I never saw that one. I SALUTE YOU!
Anyway I always figured half the point of the design was supposed to evoke taxidermy, and especially the diorama staging of, for example, museum displays. Aside: that last one with the dueling squirrels is awesome.
