Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★½

Fantastic Mr. Fox mixes the creativity and imagination of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the animation quality of films like Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit, and the visual and humorous style of Wes Anderson. 

The animation is stunning yet different from other stop-motion visual mediums (I grew up on Shaun the Sheep and Wallace Gromit along with other stop-motion films like chicken run). The animation can change pace from stiff to break-neck speed in an instant. The color is very monochrome color palette but it does change. Mainly Anderson sticks to orange in this film however he also switches to white (And maybe some other colors I didn’t pick up). However when he colors a scenes he sticks strictly to that color.

The voice acting is great all across the board.  George Clooney and Meryl Streep are probably the standouts because they recite the most dialogue and monologues but Owen Wilson as the coach was a great cameo and Bill Murray was gold as well. 

Also the scenes with the rat were awesome to say the least.
