Fantastic Mr. Fox was a movie which I had not heard of until very recently.
Upon looking at the trailers and discovering it was a Wes Anderson film, the trailer cemented my interest in it even further, with the truly funny characters and the brilliant stop motion style, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a movie I enjoyed from start to finish.
The story itself is a Dahl one at heart but i injected with Andersons dynamism which he has shown in his previous Live Action escapades. However characters like Ash, wonderfully voiced by Jason Scwatzmann, the film had me with a smile on my face from start to finish. A truly fantastic film which did not disappoint.

This biopic about San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk shows the rise of a normal gay man in San Francisco into a powerful figurehead of the gat rights movement and the affect on his life. Im a fan of Gus Van Sant after his masterful movie "Good Will Hunting", however, I somehow feel the film skims over certain parts too much and he tries to cram too much into the film. The relationships between Milk and his partners seem rather strange and unexplained, whereas his relationship with Dan White is not explored into much detail. Good performances from Brolin and Franco really add to the film but I felt somewhat disappointed with the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spike Lee Masterpeice, 26 May 2009
Now Im not a massive Spike Lee fan, I found 25th Hour to be one of the worst movies Ive ever seen. However, He Got Game is a rich film with an amazing performance from Denzel Washingtona s usual as incarcerated Jake Shuttlesworth. The use of music at times can be oddly placed and some of the scenes seem slightly drawn out but the film is irresistable at times and the cinematography is spot on 95% of the time. A great film with some brilliant moments.
