Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★★

"Why a fox? Why not a horse, or beetle, or a bald eagle? I'm saying this more as, like, existentialism, you know? Who am I? And how can a fox ever be happy without, you'll forgive the expression, a chicken in it's teeth?" - Mr. Fox

A wonderfully crafted fall time classic from the great Wes Anderson. Hosting gorgeous visuals, a stellar voice cast, and a fun heartfelt story with plenty of laughs. George Clooney in particular is FANTASTIC as Mr. Fox and the Wes Anderson styled dialogue/humor fits the stop motion animation stupendously.

A botched chicken heist. Blood thirsty farmers. And an angry Mrs. Fox. After promising for the last 12 fox years not to steal again, Mr. Fox let's greed and boredom get the best of him. Placing himself, his FOXY family, and the other surrounding woodland creatures alike in mortal danger.

I not only consider this my personal favorite Wes Anderson film, but one of my all time favorite animated films period. The overall vibe of this film is just splendid and WILDLY entertaining. I highly recommend giving this one a watch if you haven't yet, or simply revisiting it sometime this season if you have!
