    People mock Wes Anderson for making heavily stylised trailers to the point of being a trope, and Wes Anderson responds by digging into the idea with passion.

      So... I've often pondered this about Wes Anderson: is he a good director, or is he just good at HIS style of direction?
      Now, I have always really loved his films (most of them). So this isn't a knock on his work, but... could he direct like, for example... an MCU film?
      Consider the career of Steven Spielberg; horror, comedy, action adventure, drama, science fiction... it's such an eclectic grab bag, and it really demonstrates why he's considered one of the greats. I mean he made Schindler's List and Jurassic Park in the SAME YEAR!?!
      In no way do I mean for this to be a criticism of Wes Anderson's body of work, because like I said: I'm a fan. I just wanted to get other people's take.
      Like... if someone plays DH for a professional baseball team, and they regularly bat .415 (which is considered a great average), but they're a terrible fielder (can't catch or throw - hence the DH), and they're not really good base runners (bad instincts, no stolen bases, bad top speed)... are they really considered a good baseball player, or are they just good at hitting a ball?

      @@mattbrendlen229 I don't know if this question has any relevance. Is a scientist a bad one because he only has knowledge of a specific field? Maybe Wes could direct other stuff, but why should he try something new, if this is what he likes doing and people like watching?

    I really enjoyed the heightened intricacies of the set, expanding and being broken down with the stage crew moving about as if it were a stage. Fits perfectly with Wes Anderson’s love of nestled stories and narrations, layered framing devices and stories. Wes is a bit more gentle and sentimental than Roald’s rougher texture, but I really enjoyed this.

My mom would pull the top card and put them one by one on the picnic table and I’d place my hand over them, let the guess come to me, and say the card. I got so many right it was very spooky. They were like “HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS?” 😂 Mom should’ve taken me to play the lottery that day haha Must have been Pure Henry Sugar magic that night

    Wes Anderson is a genius! He's like brain candy for adults. In a world of forgettable sameness, he stands outside the box with Tim Burton and Senor Del Toro. These people actually have and inspire imagination. Remember that thing? The critics are just jealous they can't "do". I find Wes Anderson hilarious in his subtle, sometimes obvious ways. I wish to clone him! If I could have lunch with any two people in Hollywood,it would be him and Christopher Walken.

    They are really leaning into the narration of Dahl which is pretty cool if you grew up with this story. Anderson is a good fit for Dahl and the cast is of course excellent

    Wes Anderson adapting a Roald Dahl story with this cast. I didn't know Wes could elevate himself to a new level of Wes.

    Somehow all those times I read it I never realised how absurd it was, I didn’t expect an adaptation at all, looking forward to it!! Will they really narrate themselves like that the whole film?

    Wes Anderson is one of those auteur directors whose movies always makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    Wes Anderson has done what a lot of creators wish they could do: find a completely unique form that makes it so easy to pinpoint as his, even if it it truly isn't unique considering creativity thrives when taking inspiration from other things. How do I know it's unique? AI has been able to impose the style on a bunch of other properties. The fact his style is so consistent AI can make something feel so Wes Anderson is terrifying.

    I'll be honest, when I read the story, I never pictured it to be great for a Wes Anderson film but I'm interested to see how he makes it.

    Terrific adaptation, and it fulfilled a premonition I had earlier in the day yesterday, where I day-dreamed, out loud to some of my coworkers, about how nice would it be, if I were rich enough, to cash out a million dollars every year, and throw it off the roof of a building into the streets. Praise be to the lack of void and the void from which this lack of it lasts.

    Everyone’s talking about Benedict- however- Richard Ayoade fits into Wes’ aesthetic BEAUTIFULLY!! He’s quite a quirky character so I think he was born to be in one of his movies!!! ♥️
