Fantastic Mr. Fox is a well done, brilliant film that really is quote on quote, "Fantastic." This film is about a married fox with a loving family that must save his friends, his wife, his son, and his nephew from three nasty farmers that he steals food from. This movie was by far the best animated film of the year, surpassing Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and the Pixar smash, Up. What made it brilliant was how it was done. The stop motion in this film makes it look almost as if it really was happening in the real world. And I love how director Wes Anderson, who directed films like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou has outdone himself as this is his first animated film. Also, the voices of such characters such as Mr. Fox, played by academy award winner George Clooney and the Badger, played by funnyman Bill Murray fit perfectly into this film. This film also proves that not even Pixar can be the best at animation. Kudos to you, Fox. You guys made a smart move distributing this movie. Yes, this film won't be that sucessful, but whoever gets to see this will absolutely love it. Plus, this film does have changes from the Roald Dahl book, but the movie is still loveable and I bet Roald Dahl would've loved how Wes Anderson brought one of his creations to life. But anyway, you should see Fantastic Mr. Fox anyway possibe. I can absolutly assure you that you will be surprised by how much you will like this movie. As it is said in the title, Fantastic Mr. Fox really is quote on quote "Fantastic."

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
