I am so looking forward to this movie. His movies have such heart.

How in the HECK can anyone dismiss Wes Anderson as an artist?

Oh look, Battleship's out! YEEEEEEE!

Great film maker but he and Tilda Swinton must have been separated at birth.

Critics should get a real job. Wes Anderson's worst movie is better than any hollywood drivel shot in the last 30 years.

I knew I had seen this guy before. So I went to my cupboard and sure enough there he was. The Quaker Oats guy.

I'm a big fan of all of Wes Anderson's movies. I guess I like movies about lovable jerks because all of his movies have that personality type as the protagonist.

Every movie this guy has made has been great. Royal Tenenbaums was absolutely terrific.

I don't see why an artist should be expected to totally blow our minds with each work. Was DarJee Ling more of the same? Sure it was. But if you really like his style, as many do, then it was another great movie. If you don't like his style, then it wasn't for you. And that's ok.

I love it when a director creates a signature style, and spends his career working within that style, really exploring it. Do people complain when Dr Dre releases... sigh... yet another rap album? When the Foo Fighters release a new album do people groan, "What? Another rock album?" Of course not. Film is no different. Hitchcock never strayed from his style, he just let it evolve.

Wes Anderson is awesome.

Isn't this the guy who made "The Royal Tennenbaums"?
He deserves to be forgiven any cinematic sins he might commit.

Great movie, packed house, applause at the end.
MR. ANDER-son's best yet and not twee.
Moonrise Kingdom and Jeff, Who Lives At Home
are better than all the super hero movies combined
although Avergers was exceptional at a million x the budget.

Movie looks great. If critics need to go after him, do it for his haircut.

Seriously - the "Little Jack Horner" is not attractive.

Wes Anderson makes films which are at least original and not all these mainstream mythical structure borefilms.

So twee? I say his twees are the right height. Characters should be able to surprise you for reasons which do come to make sense. Most movies don't ever go there. Wes Anderson lives there.

Not really original. Watch Nichol's 'The Graduate' and see where Anderson swiped his 'original' style. Still, he makes some fun, fluffy stuff. A tad overworked and slightly hackish, but fun. As long as you don't put real meaning into it. He makes what Hollywood considers as deep films. Pretty shallow and vapid. But, when viewed as fun and light summer fare, better than most mainstream garbage.

Not really sure what you're talking about. I was referring to my last name.
