    Rushmore was good. Never cared for any of his other stuff...boring indeed, though I haven't yet seen The Fantastic Mr. Fox.



    Absolutely love that movie.

    I think the final super director's ultimate final cut (whatever it's called) is definitely the best. I was always in the "no voiceover" camp (though I do also have the first voiceover release).

    Personally, I think all versions have something interesting to offer (down to the minute, little details). Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the Star Wars films.

    Fantastic. Probably the best film of the 60s.

    You chose the wrong four words. The correct four words are: Alec Baldwin's Connery Impression




    I can understand why people don't like Anderson films. They are exceptionally dry and the styling is exceptionally contrived (sets, wardrobes, props, etc.) That said, I love dry humor and if I could dress any way that I wanted I would dress like Royal Tenenbaum. Fantastic Mr. Fox was probably my second favorite behind The Royal Tenenbaums. The animation is fantastic and the diversions from the original material are funny and well thought out. Looking fwd to seeing Moonrise Kingdom. I could see Edward Norton digging out his Death to Smoochy persona.

    Fantastic Mr Fox was great. Tennenbaums was pretty good. Will probably wait for DVD to see Moonrise Kingdom.

    I think the version *with* the voiceover narration was the best personally.

    Ditto re: Moon. Most sci fi that comes out now is total crap, but when something good comes out, it seems they really hit it out of the park. Rockwell was nothing short of amazing.

    Wes Anderson- I got to see Bottle Rocket in the theater (not sure it got release outside of texas) Rushmore was a cultural event for me, Tenenbaums was like seeing your local band make it to #1 and the rest has been really bad other than Mr Fox.

    Moonrise Kingdom--All of the characters were completely flat and don't just mean in the typical W.A. emotional way. Just looking and sounding like a WA film isn't enough for me.

    Yesterday I rented "Everything Must Go." I'd heard it was good but didn't know much about it. I was spending the evening with my daughters, who love Will Ferrel. It was listed as a comedy, so I thought 'perfect!' It became quite clear early on that this was no comedy...but, to my surprise, they really liked it. And so did I.

    Blade Runner takes place in San Francisco, thus the high Asian population. Ridley Scott and the production designer wanted it to take place at night so they could use darkness, shadows, smoke, and colored lights to dramatic effect. Though the book (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) is quite different from the movie in most respects, it also takes place mostly at night -- one night, actually.
