fantastic is right!

did anyone else catch jason schwartzman on jimmy fallon last night? i was so happy to have been watching because
a) i have a bit of a crush on him (rushmore is one of my favorite movies. bored to death has been really good too.)
and
b) he was talking about the new movie he is in- fantastic mr.fox!


i'm so excited to see this! because
a) i also love wes anderson
and
b) stop motion fascinates me. i really admire the dedication, work and patience that goes into it, and i think the overall effect is so worth it! i'm also excited that there is finally a movie for kids (and adults!) that isn't computer generated. i realize how much time and talent goes into making those movies too, but i do miss the style of older animated films like snow white and fantasia. or the pure magic that is rudolph.

oh, i can't wait to see this movie! i totally agree, the craftsmanship and time and talent in stop motion are absolutely fascinating. we just read this book with our son this past summer, and i hope he loves the movie, too.
