“I love you, but you have no idea what you’re talking about.”
To love Wes Anderson or not to love Wes Anderson? That is the question.
The director has now produced seven films. Some say his films are too precious and don’t have a soul; that they are TOO quirky and too stylized; that Wes Anderson films are all the same. But others love the quirkiness and laugh uproariously at the dry humor. They enjoy the gorgeousness of the filming, the extreme attention to detail. If you are the latter, you will love Moonrise Kingdom. It is, in my opinion, definitely one of the best films Anderson has done, and I’ll tell you why.
2012. 142 Minutes. Rated PG 13.
“Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it.”
I know some girls wouldn’t dream of going to see a movie based on comic books, but The Avengers was pure eye candy (I’m not biased due to my secret crush on Mark Ruffalo either; ever since 13 Going on 30, there is a quiet sadness look that I just can’t get enough of.) If Ruffalo isn’t your type, this movie also has Robert Downey Jr. in his reprise of millionaire playboy Ironman (who always seems to get better with age), the loyal and patriotic newcomer Chris Evans as Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth as warrior god of Thunder, Thor. Oh, and for everyone else, Scarlett Johansson bends and twists in skin tight leather as the spy, Black Widow.
Edward Norton? Who’s Edward Norton? That’s what people were saying when they heard about Primal Fear, or “That new Richard Gere movie.”
