Critic Review - 3AW

The reputation of Wes Anderson as one of America's most consistently over-rated directors gets another boost with his latest exercise in stylistic posturing and forced whimsy.

I agree with this appraisal. Wes Anderson's films are becoming more mawkish and ostentatiously cute as time goes by. That his work is so often met with gleeful admiration, says a great deal about the "adults" who pay good money to watch this cinematic trivia.

I find it ironic that a guy with a muppit as his image has the audacity to call out adults who enjoy a romanticized childhood story; almost as much so that the only other person who agrees admittedly didn't understand a rather straightforward storyline.

His films are catered to a select audience that enjoys a specific type of film. Your analysis does not focus on the movie for what it was, but the hatred for a director who makes films outside of your spectrum.

Wow, Rob. I was about to reply to Martin Schenke's comment, but you said everything very well. Wes Anderson does, indeed, cater to a select part of the moviegoing spectrum. And he appeals to that niche very well.

Ha you gave The Expendables 2 a better score than Moonrise Kingdom? Lost all credibility.

I sort of agree. I don't like Wes Anderson very much, but I have friends who practically worship him. His style is very much love or hate. That being said, I found Moonrise to be a decent movie, much better than anything else Wes Anderson has done.

My how you missed the boat. It is certainly understandable to dislike Anderson's style, but the words you published regarding this film are foolish and wildly misguided. I pity your emotional and artistic inability to experience true beauty.
