Criterion Mr. Fox is for the Fantastic Film Fanatic

  • Excerpt: There is something magical that happens when we watch a good quality stop-motion animated film. We are instantly taken back to our childhood, when our imagination breathed life into inanimate objects like toys and dolls. Perhaps exactly because it is hand made, we are even more intrigued by all the fine details in the sets, props and puppets themselves.

One of the most creative book adaptations.

  • Excerpt: Fantastic Mr. Fox was a popular children's novel by Roald Dahl, and that's how it stayed: just a popular children's novel. Until Wes Anderson chose to make a film and combine the great characters Dahl created with his own quirky, colorful style. There is not one boring moment in this movie, it is fascinating. The animation looks real, and it definitely has that signature Wes Anderson style going for it.

Fun Dahl Adaptation

FilmCrave
15 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Roald Dahl has been adapted to the screen many a time with mixed results. This is probably my favorite film adaptation of one of his books. Wes Anderson may not be the best choice to reproduce Dahl, but the evidence shows he is. He is able to recreate the dark humor that most other Dahl adaptations get down, but with more charm and whimsy along with it; it creates a good mix of dark, light and absurd.

  • Summary: Wes Anderson proves that he can translate his signature quirky visual style to other mediums, injecting vivacity and humor into this adaptation of Roald Dahl's book. The sarcastic humor and wit of the book is intact and the voice performances by an all-star cast are immersing. This is a new direction for Anderson, but a successful one.

  • Summary: Wes Anderson instantly became one of my favorite directors after seeing this great animated film. His quirky style was perfect for this story, and voice-overs were outstanding. Clooney in particular was brilliant. I am a huge fan of animation and I usually don't like it when I recognize an actor's voice because I only think of the actor while watching the film, but in this case the Wes Anderson instantly became one of my favorite directors after seeing this great...

A Witty Treat

FilmCrave
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Stop motion is a curious art. It never looks as real as CGI, and it's not as fluid as CGI. Also, it's extremely difficult to master. In fact, one would wonder why anyone would bother making a stop motion movie, as opposed to a CGI movie. The reason, is that stop motion has an odd, old fashioned, hand made feel to it. And somehow, that feel has been captured and placed into this movie, and it's not just evident in the animation. Fantastic Mr.

  • Summary: A fun film, for anyone of any age. It has wit, charm and energetic humor to spare. A purely enjoyable piece of entertainment. I love how the characters use the word 'cuss' in the place of curse words.

  • Summary: Fantastic Mr. Fox surprisingly has a lot of heart, actually more than most movies. And the movie has support of its star studded voice cast who give funny performances. Altogether the movie is funny, clever and heartfelt with fitting stop motion animation. I give this movie 91%.
