  2. Not a Wes Anderson fan...and this doesn't seem like it will make me one...this looks as mediocre as could be to me...

  3. Ehhhhhhhhh...

    I don't like George Clooney as Mr. Fox, he just sounds like George Clooney. Most of the other voice actors I couldn't recognize until their credit came up, which is a good thing, it's less distracting that it's them. I'm not a fan of the animation, I get that it's more stylized than, say, Wallace and Gromit, but some bits looked right out of an episode of Robot Chicken, and not in a good way.

    Also I've never been a fan of Wes Anderson, so I'm not expecting much from this one.

  5. Man that looks terrible...

    It literally looks like a film that's styled like a Wes Anderson film, except that it's animated and not funny...

  6. So far the consensus seems that there are no Wes Anderson fans here. I wonder how this appeals to an actual fan of his. Sadly, I am not one and this looks like a passable effort, which is a shame since I'm usually all for bringing back animation that isn't totally computer generated.

  7. Meh. I was kind of looking forward to this when Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett were connected (IMDB has only very recently updated this to be Clooney and Streep). Clooney does sound exactly like Clooney, and if I closed my eyes I could swear for a second there I was listening to a trailer from the Oceans series. I love Meryl Streep, so she's worth it, but nothing else really got me going. As stop motion goes it just didn't grab me at all.

  8. I am a Wes Anderson fan, and I think this looks really good. It seems to have many of the same things that make a Wes Anderson movie different from all others. The quick, back and forth camera movements, the odd color schemes, intricately drawn details, and the humor. This is in my top 5 to see this fall.

  9. I'm indifferent to Wes Anderson, and while some of this looks clever, I don't think Up is shaking in its boots...
