Rex Reed's review

Rex Reed just called all of Wes Anderson's movies pretentious, naive, and incomprehensible. How he's a top critic is beyond me.

rex reed is exactly right--this movie was like a bad dream but more boring and pointless-- I hated it-- full of superficial characters walking around in a coma-like condition

I kept wondering why those kids were still at summer camp in the first week of September. When does school start in New England anyway?

It takes place on an island. The school schedule could be very different on New Penzance :)

Really? I really like Wes Anderson, and Moonrise Kingdom was his best, in my opinion. You just can't count on the critics

In all fairness I'm not the biggest fan of Rex Reed, but I find it hard to say that Wes Anderson isn't pretentious and naive, I think he's an extortionately overrated director. His hipster style of filmaking always feels to contrived for my tastes, like he's trying so hard to create something moving that it feels artificial instead of actually being compelling. I usually agree with the general consensus with most critics and reviews, but I am highly annoyed by Wes Anderson's and have no idea why he is as popular as he is.

Rex Reed should just retire already. He's 75 years old and there are plenty of others out there who would like his job. He's out of touch.

Screw Rex Reed. Wes Anderson makes great movies and Moonrise Kingdom is one of his best. Sad that it won't get any recognition from the Academy.

I agree Andrew. I'm going to purchase this DVD. There were no less than 15 kids from my neighborhood in my house growing up with my two sisters and me. My mother even kept her sanity. My dad spent a lot of time at his motorcycle shop me to, I was always geting suspended.
