  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Fantastic Mr. Fox 2009

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 Mar, 2015 1

    Wes Anderson has done it again with this superbly crafted stop motion animation. Expertly scripted, clever and quirky, Fantastic Mr. Fox is “cus-ing” brilliant. Funny and accessible for all ages with a soundtrack that is spot on, you get everything you have come to expect for a Wes Anderson film - it all just works together quite perfectly. The usual big names help bring Anderson’s script to life, especially Clooney and Schwartzman. Mr. Fox, his wife, son and nephew’s lives…

It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…

    A superb creation. Matthew Vaughn brings the previously little known comic book "Kick-Ass" to life on the big screen, and boy does he do a fantastic job.

The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters…
