Fantastic Mr. Fox
Dig the life fantastic!
The Fantastic Mr. Fox bored with his current life, plans a heist against the three local farmers. The farmers, tired of sharing their chickens with the sly fox, seek revenge against him and his family.
A glorious, delicious and intricate painting of charm and smiles calibrated to a stage of pure delightful and playful perfection; in other words, Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox is liquid gold. As gold as Bean's hard apple cider and as treasured as his golden star painted apples. As cheeky and goofy as it may sound, that's it. Wes Anderson's brilliant, detailed and lovely Roald Dahl inspired moving diorama is a pitch perfect execution of artful craft, on-the-money voice work, mesmerizing animation, unexpected emotion, warm witty hilarity, an exciting and tireless story and impeccable comedic timing.
There's a love at play with the very smallest things; the animation, the craft, the humor, its handling of an audience of both kids and…
Fantastic Mr. Anderson!
This is cute, brilliant, inventive, vibrant, sharp, sarcastic, full of colour and full of life. Why the cuss did I take so long to watch it? I do not know. But I sure had a swell time with a long, broad smile drawn on my face as that of a kid who had a bucket full of ice cream in his hands.
The dialogues are quick, cheeky and intelligent marked with the characteristic Wes Anderson style quirkiness and distinction. He has done a great job in converting the Dahl’s timeless children’s book into a stop motion animation film which is well suited and wholly enjoyable for both the kids as well as the adults. This film so…
2009 was a great year for children’s films based on beloved books with wonderful adaptations of Where the Wild Things Are, Coraline, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Wes Anderson’s fantastic interpretation of Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Fantastic Mr. Fox is a film that takes the best bits of Dahl’s slight but enchanting novella and filters it through Anderson’s idiosyncratic styling to create an unlikely but magical marriage of influences. The source story may remain in tact as an urbane fox attempts to get the better of three ruthless farmers, but it is full of familiar Anderson family dysfunction and existential angst as the eponymous Mr. Fox struggles to keep his family together.
Despite the transition to stop-frame animation this…
I don't like Wes Anderson movies.
This is a delight.
*mutters something about the exception proving the rule*
Only Wes Anderson would construct a miniature electric train set on a slightly larger stop-motion animation set.
I enjoyed this much more this time around, predominately because of the visuals. Wes Anderson just does a fantastic (heh) job of creating this stop-motion world that makes me wish all animated films were done in this style.
The story is a bit too simple for me (let's be real here, it's based on a children's story and only a real asshole like myself could fault Anderson for this) but it still entertains from beginning to end.
The voice acting is great. How could it be anything but with a cast like this? George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Billy Murray, and on and on and on. The usual suspects are all here and any fan of Anderson would be hard pressed not to find some joy in just sitting back, relaxing and having a cuss load of fun. I know I did.
Elevated by quirky animation and a plethora of great character moments, Fantastic Mr Fox is yet further proof that Wes Anderson is one of the most talented and unique directors working in Hollywood today.
Mi personaje favorito de Clooney junto con Batman y Seth Gecko.
Based on the Roald Dahl book, Wes Anderson offers up another quirky and off beat film but this time in full animation. I thought that an animation would really suit Anderson's imagination and style and for some parts of the film it did work well. The voice cast is great, especially George Clooney as Mr Fox, making the character charming and likeable. Some parts of the film dragged slightly, hence the three stars instead of four, and while this is not Anderson at his best, it is still a must for his fans.
Wonderful animation, great voice acting (Michael Gambon especially), and excellent and stylish direction as always from Wes Anderson but unfortunately the plot is a bit thin as are most of the characters so it's difficult to get particularly invested.
Esta película es: Increíble. Agradable. Y deliciosa visualmente. Muy, pero muy entretenida.
The story may be a little shallow, but Anderson adds his usual flair with quirky characters, great animation, and stunning sets and shot compositions.
This movie has so much charm and brilliance, I don't see how anyone can't like this.
Certainly not one of Anderson's best films, but all the trademarks are here. So if you're a fan like I am, you'll watch with a grin even if you don't love this movie.
obviously the best wes anderson film, sorry its perfection
