Fantastic Mr. Fox

Well, it was good! The stop motion was cool, there was some clever cinematography, clever script and clever music. Sometimes there were odd bits and pieces that kinda didn’t fit, namely the scene with the wolf in. Just made me go “wha?” But still a worthwhile movie overall!

And it had some big names in it too. George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Michael Gambon and a cameo from Owen Wilson.

I think one of my favourite things was the subtle allusions to fox-related things. Other than being released by 20th Century Fox, the one I noticed was the song that was playing during the scene where the kids were diving into the pool. The song was the same one that plays when Robin Hood and Maid Marian are on their date kinda thing in the cartoon Robin Hood, in which they are of course foxes!

In fact here’s the song on youtube:
