Wes Anderson films

Friends Forever  said about 6 years ago  or at  12:20AM on Saturday, September 22 2007 in films

I'm in love with Wes Anderson films at the moment. Everything is perfect about them. The music, the characters, camera movement, dialouge, etc. Too bad there's only like 4 because I really want more. And the trailer for his new film looks good.

I know a guy who looks exactly like the guy (I forget his name) in Rushmore.
The resemblance is almost frightening.


Friends Forever  said about 6 years ago:

I could imagine.

I thought this was a puff piece?


tinyman  said about 6 years ago:

i dug the Life Aquatic. the bits of electro music composed on the ship, the fantastic colours, love it.

O R they?!


Friends Forever  said about 6 years ago:

omgggg love that scene. And also the revenge scene with the bees. The music just works so well with that montage.

there's a new film about four brothers traveling together in India - cant remember the name, but watched the preview via Frontrow on my laptop. It'll be on the Apple site I imagine.

Is this the Robert Altman wannabe or is that the other Anderson

Nope his name is Kitch (actual name!) something or other

Apologies if this was posted before the ''Missing Month''...

Wes Anderson's American Express commercial

Despite the inherent lameness of the ad series, this is brilliant.


scallywag  said about 6 years ago:

when perusing a certain magazine for women who enjoy the company of other women, i happened acorss an interesting essay on wes anderson films from a feminist perspective. basically summed his films up as excusing white boys behaving badly.

and this blog borders on calling him a racist for his treatment of coloured characters


djbollocks  said about 6 years ago:

Cool ad. I still prefer the Martin Scorcese one though.


VelvetDogge  said about 6 years ago:

don't know why i have this urge to list these but i rank 'em thusly:

  1. the life aquatic
  2. rushmore
  3. bottle rocket
  4. the darjeeling limited
  5. the royal tenenbaums

i thought the darjeeling ltd was a bit 1-note. i like how the llife aquatic kind of turns into this action flick halfway through.


PaulsGrandfather  said about 6 years ago:

I rank them like this:

  1. Rushmore
  2. The Royal Tenenbaums
  3. The Life Aquatic
  4. Bottle Rocket
  5. The Darjeeling Ltd

@breteastonellis never fails to amuse/stir shit:

The best American movie so far this year is ''Magic Mike'' and if you're thinking it's ''Moonrise Kingdom'' then you are a hipster douchebag...


klaximopark  said about 1 year ago:

Moonrise Kingdom is great. It's very easy, but there's nothing wrong with that. Stupidly rich (visually - as you'd expect), and just a really well put together film - he's not changing the game, but he delivers every time.

Fixed

I really enjoyed Magic Mike...I will see Moonrise Kingdom when the opportunity presents itself.

New one in the pipes - awesome. Ralph Fiennes is an interesting choice - glad Depp isn't the main.



nomad  said about 8 months ago:

Bill Murray - what a fucking surprise!


klaximopark  said about 8 months ago:

fuck yes...damn good cast. I like that the wiki page info saying they might try to push a 2013 release. Jonesing for some new Wes.

Not a surprise, a gift.

I think this looks spectacular:

The Grand Budapest Hotel


TagoMago  said about 5 months ago:

LoadMyRig  said about 5 months ago:

CAN'T WAIT!


LoadMyRig  said about 5 months ago:

(very weird to see titles in non-yellow futura bold)


tigers  said about 5 months ago:

Have you seen his recent short film with Jason Schwartzman?


LoadMyRig  said about 5 months ago:

by short film, do you mean prada ad? why yes!

Charles Dumar  said about 1 month ago:

It's amazing. I think it's my favourite Anderson film so far. Fiennes is amazing, as is Revolori.

Everyone should, nay, must... No, no... Should go see this*

*must.


Northside  said 3 days ago:

Saw Grand Budapest last night. I thought it was good. Quite a poignant ending. Still not really a patch on Rushmore or Royal Tenenbaums though. A bit sad that he seems to have ditched the pop soundtracks. Also it's all becoming a bit too samey. Still... a good film all in all.


SnoopDoug  said 3 days ago:

I thought it was pretty good, but I enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom more. Like northside mentions, I think it feels a bit ''samey''.

I watched Royal Tenenbaums again earlier this year - the Mrs hadn't seen it. She fell asleep, and it wasn't as awesome as I remembered. Maybe because I knew what was going on this time around.
