5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect if new to Wes Anderson, 1 Aug 2009
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums/Rushmore/The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou [DVD] (DVD)
As mentioned above, this collection contains Rushmore, Royal Tennenbaums, and the Life Aquatic.

If you have never seen any of these films, then you can't go far wrong with this collection. These are probably Wes Anderson's three most famous and highly regarded films, and they are all excellent. In particular I think the Life Aquatic is absolute genius, but everyone i know would probably pick a different favourite.

I would recommend, however, one film which is omitted is Anderson's first movie, Bottlerocket, which features many of the actors in these movies. It is, in my opinion, just as good as these, and if you enjoyed this collection then you should seek out Bottlerocket immediately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love 'em or Hate 'em, 22 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums/Rushmore/The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou [DVD] (DVD)
These are films that will not appeal to everyone. I think they're brilliant and bought the collection having seen the Life Aquatic and the Royal Tenenbaums before. The collection is terrific value for money and if you're a Wes Anderson fan you'll already know what you're getting. If you're a first timer, I would perhaps recommend renting at least one of these films before to test the water, as they are definitely not to everyone's taste. They are all shot in docudrama format and are an interesting perspective on American lifestyle that would otherwise remain hidden to anyone outside the US. A great buy if you like to watch fly off the wall documentaries! I loved it.

You will either love these films or you just won't get them. A common event when dealing with surrealism or black comedy. If you want to be eased in gently, start with 'The life aquatic' as it's probably the most accessible. 'The Royal Tenenbaums' is easily in my top ten films of all time. 'Rushmore' whilst worth a watch and having some great moments isn't as good as the other two.

Watch these if you liked Dr.Strangelove, In Bruges or maybe Coen Brothers films.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 3 aint bad, 4 Nov 2009
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums/Rushmore/The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst 'Rushmore' may be one of the most original films of it's day that spawned a host of inferior imitations, and 'The Royal Tenenbaums' brings together a brilliant ensemble cast for a simultaneously funny and sad story, 'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou' is just plain rubbish. If this box set had substituted that film for the much better 'Bottle Rocket' it would be a marked improvement and then contain the 3 films that Anderson co-wrote with Owen Wilson too, giving the box set more of a consistent theme.
