    A quirky, comfy coming-of-age film with an neat cast.

    Perfection. This is pretty much my favourite Wes Anderson film, which is a difficult decision to make, but Moonrise Kingdom is like the ultimate culmination of every quintessential Wes Andersonism, blended together in perfect measure, achieving the utmost climax of potential that has previously attempted throughout his illustrious filmography. Its just wonderful.

    Another quintessential Wes Anderson film. The characters are quirky and somewhat stilted but ultimately very human and very believable. Easy to love them all, even the most flawed. Every moment is grandly epic even when utterly mundane and that is heightened by this movie's focus on children whose natural sense of urgency and presence controls all the adults around them, even seeming to influence or at least coincide with the natural storm brewing around them. Bruce Willis as the slow…

    As others have pointed out, Moonrise Kingdom seems like a distillation of the themes and topics that matter most to Wes Anderson. In that regard, Moonrise Kingdom is lovely, maybe a bit bittersweet. But I just didn't really enjoy it.

    I go out of my way not to be that guy who sneers and says, "Huh, this artist was *better* before he went maaaaainstream." I hate that guy, especially when that guy is me (it happens). So while I recognize…

    I adore the medium of film. The fact that anything can happen, in any place, any time period, excites me in a way nothing else can. Of course, there's the stinkers of the movie world, but for every unfortunate event playing out on screen, there's two or three prodigious ones. However, the film world may be dandy and fresh, but there's one thing that has always got on my nerves.

    Whenever a child star portrays a lead character in a…

    I may be in the minority not being a major Wes Anderson fan but I absolutely loved this movie. The perfect contrast between the innocence of childhood and the harsh realities of adulthood provide for a perfect thematic background for what is in reality a young-love story. To top it off the final scene using a the music of Benjamin Britten's Cuckoo provides one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen combining to make for what I believe is a quirky yet soulful masterpiece.

    Emily Morgan's Review:
    Moonrise Kingdom is a beautiful story about childhood love and trying to find yourself. Wes Anderson understands children's minds amazingly.

    During a rugby trip to Elkahart, Indiana for the first round of nationals the team got to stay in a nice hotel. I've stayed in quite a few hotels in my day, most of them on family vacations, and I like to think that I have a pretty good grasp on hotel television. The hotel has a TV with all the basic channels, no guide and normally one HBO channel. This hotel however, had Directv and nine HBO channels. We…
