    Here's a review on a movie recommend to be by a friend, called 'Moonrise Kingdom'. The plot follows two 12 year old children who fall in love and run away together, and variety of adult characters trying to find them. It is important to note before seeing this film that writer/director Wes Anderson uses absurdist humor in his films, so in order to make audience laugh, he takes real life situations and presents them in quirky, bizzare ways. This obviously…

    It lacks the charm of GBH, and while it has it's moments (including a hilarious cameo from Jason Schwartzman), I found myself fairly bored on numerous occasions.

    nostalgic sepia washes over this sweet coming of age romance creating a sense of longing that pervades the entire movie, but not one that supersedes its wry (and often dark) comedic elements too. there is plenty of commentary here on american culture and family life at a time when it was just about to bust loose: the setting is 1965 after all.

    "moonrise kingdom" is cleverly and musically framed by britten’s "the young person’s guide to the orchestra," a recording…

    this was one that i anticipated just before it came out, and it didn't quite hit my expectations, but it was still quite fantastic. impossibly cute, but almost suffocatingly quirky. i always love that wes anderson uses the medium of film in the most unconventional way possible, but this time it felt highly contrived. while i don't believe this is one of anderson's best films, i feel like this is a great midsummer flick. the props and costumes and highly-saturated…

    Moonrise Kingdom was just added to Netflix and I hadn't seen a Wes Anderson film before, so I decided to watch this and it did not dissapoint in any way. The main thing about this movie is the amazing colorful style, which makes any normal scene way more interesting, so I was never bored watching this. Also, the cinematography is fantastic and there is a wide shot or a pan shot almost every scene, and the way the movie is…

    Rewatched this with my parents the other day. It still holds up. This is probably my favourite Wes Anderson film but it's hard to say for certain. It was cool seeing my parents, who were born in the 60s, react to all the nostalgic stuff in the film. The cinematography and other film making aspects are fantastic, of course

    Me gustan las películas que, recubiertas de "historia infantil" nos cuentan mas cosas de las que en un principio puedan parecer, bien, esta es una de ellas.
