fantastic mr. fox

I love movies. Movies are a great break from my day-to-day life of compulsively checking my phone.1

My wife and I recently rented Fantastic Mr. Fox from Amazon.2 This movie was very highly rated by movie critics with histories of head injuries. I learned this fact later at Wikipedia. Unfortunately the head injury part hadn't been included in their bios, so I was sure to add it.

One quote reads, "Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightfully funny feast for the eyes with multi-generational appeal – and it shows Wes Anderson has a knack for animation."

I'm pretty sure there were some bits switched from when that was written until its publication on the internet. It should read something like this:

"Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightfully awkward walk through the mind of a crazy person - and it shows Wes Anderson should be committed for life."

If you haven't watched it yet, I invite you to purchase a large 2x4 and bang yourself in the head for 90 minutes to simulate the experience.

This is a good movie especially for my sworn enemies. Please watch it and enjoy having your brain dismembered. It's sort of like a nice drive through the countryside on a car made out of spikes that breaks down and abruptly stops without warning continually.

1. Protip: if you want to break a Facebook habit, unsubscribe from everyone you haven't spoken to in over a year. Voila: you have no more updates, thus nothing to see.
2. Motto: One major connection issue per movie or your money back.

I loved Fantastic Mr. Fox!

As an aside, have you seen Moonrise Kingdom?

I didn't watch it because stop motion animation weirds me out.

Now we just need a protip for twitter.

Agreed. All my sisters-in-law recommended it, and I could never figure out why. Now I know it must be the history of head injuries.

I watched that movie and wanted my 90 minutes back! Totally agree with your thoughts....and I am a big Wes Anderson fan in general. His recent movie, Moonrise Kingdom, was awesome!

@jake I have not! Any good? Worth watching? Or does he do that weird thing where people stare at the camera blankly like in FMF?
