DON’T YOU FORGET ABOUT: Fantastic Mr. Fox

mr-fox-1080BY ADRIANA FLORIDIA

What it’s about: Based on the popular Roald Dahl book, Fantastic Mr. Fox  follows the Fox Family who live an ordinary life, until Mr. Fox plots a giant chicken heist and enlists the help of his criminal friends.

Who’s in it: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson and many others provide voicing.

When it came out: 2009

How come you haven’t heard of (or just seen) it: I hadn’t quite discovered the world of director Wes Anderson when this film came out, and so it simply passed by me.

Why you need to watch it–immediately!

  • The still life puppet animation is unparalleled
  • Quirky characters like Ash and Kristofferson steal every scene they are in
  • The voice cast is a dream
  • The film is laugh-out-loud funny all throughout
  • Wes Anderson should be doing more animated film
  • The way the Fox’s eat dinner is hilarious
  • This movie answers the question, What Does the Fox Say?
  • This is hands down the best robbery film out there
  • It’s a quirky, cute, and unconventional children’s film!
  • The film is getting the Criterion treatment!
