The Life Aquatic [Jan. 3rd, 2005|02:03 am]
Scrambled Porn


I really didn't enjoy The Life Aquatic, even despite a notable fondness for previous Wes Anderson movies (my favorite being Rushmore). I chuckled a couple of times and appreciated seeing Willem Defoe in a comedy but that aside I was completely bored. I've been looking forward to the film for some time and was disappointed that I just couldn't get into it.

Heather proposed leaving a quarter the way through, but I kept hoping it would pick up. And it did. But not enough to salvage my opinion of the movie.

Tomorrow we're going to watch Bottle Rockets again.

josh and I saw la yesterday. there were elements to it that I enjoyed (and yes, watching willem dafoe run around in the silver spandex suit was hilarious), but overall... eh. I liked the shot that moved through all the rooms of their ship model. without cutting. but that's what sticks out most in my mind.

I still like royal tenenbaums the best out of all the wes anderson movies.

I appreciated that shot visually so it won points for style, but the humor in it wasn't especially funny (I mean, it was dry and non-sequitor but it wasn't entirely clever or unexpected). I think Rushmore is my favorite but I certainly did enjoy The Royal Tenenbaums. I don't remember Bottle Rockets enough so that's why we're going to re-watch it.
