Is it me or do badgers look strangely natural in business attire?

Sorry, I saw Fantastic Mr. Fox last weekend and I’m still not over it.

As a fan of Wes Anderson, I had pretty high expectations when I walked into the theater, and I was definitely not let down.  Not only was the film a visual delight (it’s stop-motion animation) but the story  and characters were also enchanting.  George Clooney seems to be everywhere, always, but I can’t say that I mind.  He did great job as Mr. Fox.  Other cast members include Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray to name a few.

The holidays are a great time to go to the theater,  especially in this cold Minnesota weather.   Over the past few weeks I have created a long list of movies I’d like to see, but Fantastic Mr. Fox will most assuredly get a second viewing before I move on to the next.

    To me this looked like a pretty dumb movie, but I have only heard positive reviews. I’ll have to toss it on the Netflix list.
