But is it sardonic?

Very much looking forward to this. Moonrise Kingdom was his best film yet, my #3 film of last year.

loved moonrise kingdom.

this, however, looks like an SNL parody of a wes anderson film. but i hope it's good. it looks like an awful lot of fun.

Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums were masterful. I don't quite feel Moonrise Kingdom was on the level of those two, but I need to watch it again, and it was a very good movie. The Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of my favorite movies in general.

Wes Anderson is one of a few directors where I'll pretty much see whatever they put out regardless.

The thing that's great about Anderson is that he's a pretty rare director where you KNOW he's the director. He's not pumping out generic shiat. That's pretty rare these days. Very, very few directors can really make that claim. Even some of the best directors alive, like Chris Nolan or Ang Lee or Spielberg, don't have a stamp on their films quite like that.

Looks like a mix between The Shining and Life of Pi.

Why hasn't Ralph Fiennes aged in 20 years?

Royal Tennebaums is my favorite, but i was surprisingly moved by Mr. Fox, too.

I think Nolan does.

The Helvetica Neue Black (Just like Anderson's infatuation with typography) in the title of his movies.

B A T M A N  B E G I N S
T H E  P R E S T I G E
T H E  D A R K  K N I G H T
I N C E P T I O N
T H E  D A R K  K N I G H T  R I S E S

Not showing a single credit until the end, which is where you see the name of the movie and the actors working on it.

The high contrast and hyper realistic but muted color palette.

The Hans Zimmer scores which compliment the image style from above with their staccato droning.

And all is all part of Nolan's style of being impossibly antiseptic, which is why some of his movies may feel a bit inert. He's like a scientist more than a filmmaker.

He wants the movie part to be completely transparent and devoid of any kind of distraction and anything that may remind you you're watching a movie someone else made. It's why he also doesn't use much music besides the Zimmer scores. I think only Inception which had those Edith Piaf songs and that was a storytelling choice more than anything.

I watched the trailer with no sound- it looks like a slightly gayer version of I Served the King of England.

Comes out in March?
May not be a good sign.
Loved Moonrise Kingdom.
 
2013-10-17 06:12:06 PM
Glad Edward Norton found someone to work with again.
 
2013-10-17 06:50:07 PM
Spiffy!

He makes good movies, so they don't release it in Jan/Feb or in the post-summer/pre-Oscar-bait season, but he's too quirky for Oscar bait and not mainstream enough to release during the summer. So the immediate pre-summer season is a good time for it.

Ill be the odd one out, but i think Life Aquatic is my favorite Wes Anderson movie.

His films are like Christmas, pretty much the same every year, but still pretty awesome.

Up until The Fantastic Mr Fox, Life Aquatic was my favourite Anderson film - and hell, it is still one of my favourite films, full stop.

I wouldn't say it was my favorite, but I like Aquatic a LOT. I don't think it deserves the criticism it gets.

great, but not quite up to Rushmnore or Tennybums
 
2013-10-17 07:40:12 PM
I used to consider myself a Wes Anderson fan, but the more movies he makes the more I realize I'm really just a Rushmore fan.

Wes Anderson is one of my all time favorite artists, let alone filmmakers.

My personal fave is Bottle Rocket. Seriously, I'm that guy. But I genuinely love it the most

I've loved all of his movies.

In this order:

Bottle Rocket
Royal Tenenbaums
Rushmore
The Life Aquatic
Darjeeling Limited
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Moonrise Kingdom

And Moonrise was the best film of last year for me. I love his style and the feel of his movies.

THAT SAID

Wes, as a huge fan, I'm worried that you are getting too comfortable in your sandbox. It's time to build a new one. Not every shot has to be perfectly balanced, not every scene needs a British rock soundtrack or a slow motion tracking shot, and not every film needs to be so precious all the time. I exaggerate to make a point but I would be pretty psyched if I heard you were doing something very, very different from the usual.
 
2013-10-17 08:15:25 PM
Let me guess.  It's got Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, and Adrien Brody in it.
 
2013-10-17 08:16:00 PM
Ha, six for six.
 
2013-10-17 08:23:14 PM
hasn't made a good movie since Tenenbaum's.
 
2013-10-17 08:23:45 PM
Love Willem Dafoe, his portayal as the Devil in the 250 CLA commercials really has me considering one. 30 grand-ish, not too bad, since the kids are out of the house.
 
2013-10-17 08:42:50 PM

GavinTheAlmighty: Ha, six for six.


Your math needs work.
 
2013-10-17 08:44:15 PM

GavinTheAlmighty: Let me guess.  It's got Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, and Adrien Brody in it.


And Ralph Fiennes, Ed Norton, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, F Murray Abraham and Harvey Kietel. And the usual bit players as well.
 
2013-10-17 08:56:27 PM
Sometimes his movies are just too weird for me, but that clip had a lot of funny scenes.
 
2013-10-17 11:16:16 PM
Asides the usual faces, my first thought was, "oooo...Saoirse Ronan is in this!  She purdy..."


....and then I realized she's not even 20.

/Feels like a creeper.

His movies look cool. He usually gets Bill Murray in there. But I've never got Wes Anderson's movies.

Best I can figure is that I can't find a reason to care about any of his characters.

Remembered liking Moonrise Kingdom, then checked IMDB and saw that I'd given it a 6. Neat, but not memorable. Same with the others I've watched.

/I guess I'm dum

So I just discovered free movies on Crackle.com. I watched La Femme Nikita last night,

Bottle Rocket is there. I was hoping for more. I remember Bottle Rocket being amusing, not great.

Though Owen Wilson's writing credit gave me some more respect for him.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I used to consider myself a Wes Anderson fan, but the more movies he makes the more I realize I'm really just a Rushmore fan.


Yeah, me too.  I went through the same process with Tarantino.  Loved Reservoir Dogs, liked Pulp Fiction, and finished up pretty much indifferent to everything he made after that.

Get the soundtrack. It's awesome.

Tony Revolori : not even a week goes by and it's Kumar Pallana  reincarnated!

rocky_howard: I think Nolan does.

They both learned it from Woody Allen:

I just realized: this is a prequel: Zero is actually Pagoda from the Royal Tenenbaums!

You aren't alone, Life Aquatic is my favorite as well. And, as aalready mentioned, the soundtrack is great.

Wes Anderson does action/adventure, what's not to love?

Whoops.  I guess I was thinking about Jason Schwartzman but didn't write him down.  Of course he's in this one too.

Kid the Universe: In this order:

Bottle Rocket
Royal Tenenbaums
Rushmore
The Life Aquatic
Darjeeling Limited
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Moonrise Kingdom


i would go:
Rushmore
Royal Tenenbaums
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Moonrise Kingdom
The Life Aquatic
Darjeeling Limited

(haven't seen Bottle Rocket yet)

hmm.. hard for me to say.. I liked most of his stuff.. Rushmore, Mr. Fox, Tennanbaums, Darjeeling, .. what else? .. Life Aquatic...

In fact, Moonrise is probably near the bottom for me.

This new one looks aweeesomeeeee ..
