I really wanted to like this film. I respect Wes Anderson and his distinctive voice as a writer-director ('Rushmore' is one of my favorite films of the 1990s), but this latest endeavor is so precious and self-aware that it nearly smothers itself.
I respect your opinion although I currently disagree with it, and consider your voice in this matter to be of equal merit to anyone else.

Haven't seen the movie yet but thank God for the respectful comment Brandon. I could have seen 100 other people whining about this review.

So, would you say it's worse than Laserblast?

Somebody left a perfectly good arm-remover!

Maltin, what the hell? Your review reads like you were in a mood when you saw this film, and it added some unfair bias to your review. You shouldn't crap on Anderson, his style is his style.

Style should not be a means to justify inadequacies.

If inadequacies were present maybe...

He likes Rushmore more than this... Wow.

Rushmore's a great movie, a classic mind you but certainly not better than this, moonrise kingdom is the classic Wes Anderson film I'd been waiting for since Bottle Rocket and this movie is perfect despite what fight club hater says about it.
