When I heard Fantastic Mr. Fox was being released as a stop motion film a few months back, I was pretty excited. I loved the book as a child.

Now having seen what they've produced, I'm pretty annoyed. The character designs are so basic and standard, and the film/story has been Americanised. I can honestly say it reminds me of some of the lower-grade university student's work I saw during university, in terms of model/armature design. Ive seen better models and animation produced for Children's programs.

Completely screwed up by using real fur IMO. Looks terrible in stop motion animation >_<



I'm also wondering if they didn't have permission to use Roald Dahl's name "Based on the book by the author of "Charlie and the chocolate factory", or whether it's just ignorance.

Terrible terrible ignorance, I'd gander
Well if we're lucky, the theme will get carried over and when that Dante's Inferno video game comes out, it will instead be 'based on the book by the author of De Monarchia'

Mind, I particularly liked his story Poison

I actually thought the style they'd gone for looked pretty good. At least it's original - having a mainstream stop motion film is a pretty rare thing in this CG day and age. Yeah, it does look Americanised which is a shame, although I suppose trying to sell it to the Americans has to come with some limitations. I enjoyed the trailer when I saw it a few weeks ago, though. Made me laugh out loud which most comedies generally fail to do nowadays. Apart from the Hangover, that was hilarious x)

I'm going to remain optimistic that it'll at least be enjoyable. My other fear is that they put all the funny stuff in the trailer, and the rest of the film will be a bit rubbish...

having never read or even heard of what its based on, i had a good laugh seeing the trailer while waiting to see "9" the other day. seems like it'll be a decent movie to me.

"9" was more dissapointing than that trailer, it was still an ok movie though. the ending was rather bizarre and unneccessary though. one of those things i think wouldve done better as a half hour short on tele than a full length movie based on a 10 minute short.

Trailer looks pretty good actually. I think Adam is being overly picky on what really is a kids movie.

No Rikus, I just studied Animation at university and appreciate quality animation when I see it, as well as direction, armature design and character design. I also appreciate how hard it is to get into the industry and how it takes the piss when something of this quality is produced for the big screen.

Again, another somewhat bitchy attempt at lashing out which is obviously related to our recent PM's.

Umm no Mr Adam, just you know giving my opinion. I hope that is ok with you? I hope I can have a opinion that is slightly different then yours?

The trailer does really look pretty good , and I am sure the kids will eat it up. However and I do agree, another classic like Coraline or nightmare before christmas this will not be. But as a fun kids flick, for sur.

If it was your opinion why couldn't you elaborate on your "opinion" like you just did in the first place?

Ha, that video was entertaining! I've always loved Aardman stuff. The dude with no eyes reminds me of a character in one of Nick Park's earlier videos.

I don't know what I think of the Mr. Fox video. At first it looked dreadfully boring, but then it kind of picked up. I probably won't end up seeing it anyway so I guess it doesn't matter.
