RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Moonrise Kingdom and Madagascar 3

Summary

Wes Anderson came back in a big way this year (even bigger than surprising the world with his animated masterpiece Fantastic Mr. Fox) and now his Moonrise Kingdom is now available to own on DVD. On top of that, we got something new from DreamWorks Animation, an Adam Sandler joint, and some lo-fi horror from the creator of Paranormal Activity. Click through for the full list! Back to Article

Oh Moonrise Kingdom, if only it could be nominated for at least TWO Oscars (I'm not saying it's impossible, I just doubt anyone would agree with me if it's the type of movie to win academy awards if Ralph Fienes' Coriolanus isn't/wasn't)

Cool, does this mean Madagascar 5 will get a 90% or did they stop it from there?

Can't wait for Cloud Atlas btw. The look reminds me of a less figurative/more concrete version of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.

I was lucky enough to see Moonrise Kingdom in the theater and I enjoyed it a lot. I'm gonna rent that again soon. I enjoyed the first two Madagascar films so I will rent the third one. I can pass on everything else.

Moonrise was the best film I've seen this year. The most digestible Wes Anderson movie for non Anderson fans, gonna grab it and give it a plenty of re-watches like Fantastic Mr. Fox

Comedy would imply that it was funny.

Easy, Lance. Let's not do something foolish like...compare Adam Sandler to the magnificent Mel Brooks. Unless we're limiting the comparison to Brooks' 90s films. Snadler does not have the mental fortitude to produce classics like "Producers", "Blazing Saddles", "Young Frankenstein", "High Anxiety", or "Silent Movie". Proof? 'Cause he hasn't come close.

Not arguing that Sandler comedies after say Big Daddy don't suck. Arguing the reason given for why they're not funny. The point I was trying to make is that even subjects like incest or child rape can be funny in the hands of a master like Mel Brooks ie the Johnson opening sequence of Blazing Saddles do we think that wasn't mocking incest? or the the numerous references to Nazism, rape and myriad other seemingly inherently unfunny subjects that are hilarious in someone like Brooks hands. The fault of Sandler isn't that his movie's have those topics in them, it's that he's too lazy or untalented to make the most of them. I lean toward the former because in movie's like Happy Gilmour, Billy Madison and Big Daddy I thought they did work to very good comedic effect. Sandlers also guilty of nepotism in his casting which sometimes benefits him (Steve Buscemi), but more often than not doesn't (The rest of his crew).

I agree. For another example, the crime that Danial Tosh perpetrated with his rape joke was simply that it wasn't remotely funny. But then again, he never is. Do they have a shortbus for wit-deficiencies?

In fact, many of Scamdler's films are nothing more than shitty remakes of old classics: Harold Lloyd's THE FRESHMAN became THE WATERBOY, Frank Capra's MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN (Sandler took a real dump there), THE LONGEST YARD, the 1969 film CACTUS FLOWER became JUST GO WITH IT last year, Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE became CLICK....

Hoping Sandler's films lose enough money to close down the abomination that is Happy Madison Productions. Then burn the building to remove the stench.

I find his films pretty lame. It's like watching a film and the dorky dude in front of you is giggling the snot out of his nose, and you're wondering what the joke is. The joke is you paid money to see this weak shit.

Or maybe it went over your head? And despite the moments of hilarity in all of Anderson's films, they usually delve into deeper, more personal and philosophical terrain, so they can be judged by more than simply laughs.

Val Mordas

Yes, that's it. It must have gone over my head. Either that or it's
pretentious arthouse quirk-porn, with the intent on being weird just so some nutsack like you can try and pretend to be superior by actually 'getting it'. I'm gonna go with the latter.

I am with Jansen it had to have gone over you're head or you just have horrible taste in movies. Wes Anderson is just one of those directors that I go out of my way to see their movies just because of the director.

Oct 16 - 08:16 PM

Valmordas

Val Mordas

That's nice, you both agree. And I still don't. Not everyone likes what you like. I could just as soon say you have bad taste for liking that crap, but that would be obvious.

Haha loved your first response Val. Although I thought it was a little out of line (although funny as hell) until I read Jansons last post. Why someone not like a movie without it being "over their head"? In my experience people are different and enjoy different things. Both Janson and Todd, you sound very pretentious, I break wind in your general direction. Go boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person.

Yep cause a director who has a very stylistic approach to his film making it makes him pretentios. Because the humor in his movies is just a little esoteric, it's pretentios. Because his films have depth and rich yet odd characters highlighted with great acting, and well composed soundtracks, which are incorporated by older music and older bands, it's pretentios. And because his movies have a kind of dedicated and specific fan base...Wes Anderson's films are pretentios. Get over yourself Val.

It's his opinion dude, he's welcome to it, I didn't find the movie pretentious but it just wasn't my cup of tea. It wasn't horrible but I didn't find it enjoyable. We all have different tastes in movies. Didn't sound like Val was trolling if u look at his first post, he was simply giving his opinion.

Wes Anderson films remind me of Woody Allen movies where they're critically acclaim but they don't draw enough people to pay any money to see any of their films on the big screen! I own some of Anderson films and the only one I had seen so far is "Rushmore" and thought a movie of this calibur wouldn't convince me to see it on the big screen either!

Val Mordas

Nor can I really blame people who like Anderson for whatever deluded reasons they might have. In fact I'll go as far as to recant my prior accusal of anyone having bad taste, simply to say I vehemently disagree with it.

It isn't that I don't respect Val's right to his opinion (what choice have I got?). I'm just amused that under his "tough as nails" exterior (a pretense, perhaps?), he shows such a sensitive soul at my relatively less harsh barbs. My suggesting the film's humor was "over his head", not entirely in seriousness, is much less offensive than calling the film "weak shit" and it's fans pretentious, nutsacks and dorks giggling snot over themselves. But, right, sure. I must be the bad guy here...

Oct 17 - 12:08 PM

Sir Phobos

Sir Phobos

Haha I didn't say you were a bad guy, just wish we could all feel free to comment on movies without hearing about how stupid we are for liking something, or hearing that it was over our heads and we just didn't get it. Look at the poor Twilight fans, I think the movies are bad, but I don't bash people on her like others do. You enjoy what you enjoy and u don't what don't.

Hey I agree Mark anyone can disike or like any movie they want, it's all subjective. But calling something pretentios is just a bit overused and I wouldn't refer to anything thats pretensios just becasue it's not cookie-cutter. And Anderson movies do not involve general film making, which is why his films have a either love em or hate em stigma attached

Saying that Wes Anderson's films are pretentious is a fallacy because pretentious implies showiness, which Anderson's films are not. They are actually the opposite of that. They're a subtle, slow build up with some interspersed sharp jabs in the kidney you might not see coming.

Best Example: "I like your nurses uniform." "These are O.R. scrubs." "O R they??"

From then on I was an Anderson fan. Later.

I'd probably rent Moonrise Kingdom. I haven't watched the movie, but I hope next year they could get a Best Picture Oscar. Wonderful movie from Wes Anderson.

That's My Boy, probably I'll rent it also. It was a tad box office start last summer. but Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are a great pair.

Instead of watching Chernobyl Diaries, I'll wait in line for Paranormal Activity 4 this Friday. Pass.

I think Madagascar 3 is way better than Madagascar 2. But the franchise is still the best in all of the Dreamworks movies since Shrek. Next year when Dreamworks has a new partnership with 20th Century Fox (home of Ice Age), I don't what the card holds for future releases and franchises like Puss in Boots and How to Train Your Dragon.

What are they saying about him that isn't true? He is a legit box-office draw, though that is starting to wear off, and he is by definition a "comedian." I haven't liked his movies for a long time, but seriously, RT just reports the news, they don't make it. Relax.

Do not rent Moonrise Kingdom!.........It is an absolute BUY!!!!!!! my favorite film of 2012 (so far). It's a beautifully framed, brilliantly acted, hilarious, heartwarming piece of art. It will make you laugh, it will make your heart melt. A touching story about young first love
