Fantastic Mr Fox

Last weekend, on a rainy Sunday afternoon, the girls and I made popcorn, wrapped up in blankets and settled down to watch Fantastic Mr Fox . Have you seen it? It is turning into one of our  all-time favourite movies. So many things are great: the script, the action and George Clooney’s voice! Plus, it works for kids and for adults — there are not that many movies around that my kids and I all equally enjoy, but this film works on many different levels. I read the book when I was a kid and the film captures the essence of the book perfectly.  The clever fox outwitting the nasty farmer is a story  that works well, especially when animated with fabulous puppets.

Coming into winter does have advantages — I would feel too guilty in the summer spending a Sunday afternoon watching a movie, but when it’s cold outside, I reckon it is completely justified!

Well, I haven’t watched it yet, but even tho i don’t have kids, o love these kind of animated films. I think I will get it sooner or later, so i can watch it and show it to those children who do come around. =)
