"That's just weak songwriting."

Aaagh, I'm post crazy but I couldn't wait, just like I couldn't wait to see Fantastic Mr. Fox tonight. There are two things you need to know about the movie:

-It's different from anything you're EVER likely to see.
...Including Anderson's other movies. The themes that run through most of his work are a whole 'nother trip when it's all puppets and a lot of puppet violence.

-It's not an adaptation. It has even less to do with the book than I expected (and the trailer had already eroded my expectations on that front drastically).

I loved it, not as much as Meatballs, but it's still wonderful. What a year I've had at the movies :D
