Default SJW's going after Wes Anderson (no... really)

SJW's cross the line once again.

while i'll admit it's mildly entertaining to watch the social justice brigade continually shoot themselves in the foot... KEEP YOUR SLIMY ASS FKN PAWS OFF WES ANDERSON'S ART. seriously, get a ****ing life.

Wes Anderson's 'Isle of Dogs' is often captivating, but cultural sensitivity gets lost in translation

lol the coward has to rattle off near two full pages of praise before he sneaks in his little "cultural appropriation" jab. gtfo

that said, i'm now making time specifically to go see this movie over the weekend. i'm sure it will be yet another wes anderson masterpiece

My Favorite Wes Anderson Films:

1. Bottlerocket

saw this movie years ago long before "wes anderson" became a thing. also Dignan is easily one of my top 10 favorite fictional characters of all time

2. Rushmore/Grand Budapest

grand budapest is probably his "best" film

3. Fantastic Mr. Fox/Royal Tenenbaums

*unfortunately, thought Darjiling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom were complete garbage... not necessarily as stand-alone films but due to the fact that i'd come to expect much more from a wes anderson movie at the time of their release

To steal a line from a movie that is actually watchable:

You know what I'd rather do (than watch a Wes Anderson movie)?

I'd rather let Queen Latifah sh*t in my mouth from a ****ing hot air balloon.

Anyone who thinks Grand Budapest Hotel is Anderson's best film is not to be trusted.

It goes Rushmore, Tenenbaums, Bottle Rocket. Budapest is near Darjeeling, towards the bottom of the list.

Disagree

1. Rushmore
2. Bottle Rocket (first time seeing Anderson film, so sentimental placement)
3. Moonrise Kingdom
3. The Grand Budapest Hotel
3. Fantastic Mr. Fox

6. The Royal Tenenbaums

Meh:
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
The Darjeeling Limited

Wow. 6? Why so low?

It isn't the best Anderson movie, but Tenenbaums is definitely my favorite one.

I can't stand the dude's work. His movies are so precious. I don't want to watch two hour long New Yorker articles that look like commercials with some pedantic storyline in them.

The story didn't draw me in, it seemed to be a collection of idiosyncratic characters that had a forced interaction plot. It didn't have the cohesion of plot that Rushmore did, also every character in Rushmore made sense for plot, story and place. It was okay just third tier movie from Anderson for me.

Anyone without a MAGA hat is now a "Social Justice Warrior" to these peabrains. What a stupid looking movie.

Then don't watch this, breaks down the Wes Anderson movie formula. Isle of Dogs just got weird for me.

oh dear

i'm not sure "pedantic" is really the appropriate word...

wes anderson is ridiculously cultured (almost to a fault) and happens to love literature. and it shows in his films. more than that tho he's obsessed with playfulness, innocence, and that child-like courage that is all but beaten out of us by the time we enter into adulthood.

if you're expecting something else from a wes anderson film, you're in the wrong place

100%

grand budapest was his first break (other than royal tenenbaums to an extent) from the precocious child narrative to show his true writing abilities

i'm not sure if you're familiar with pulitzer winner cormac mccarthy but one literary technique he mastered was putting entire epochs/ethe into central characters in order to convey their respective human components. it was remarkably clever. i think that was what wes anderson was aiming at in grand budapest

i'm as well not sure how familiar you are with the apache raids on the frontier but in mccarthy's masterpiece "blood meridian" he embodied all the horrors of the back-and-forth atrocities along the mexican/american border into a single character ("the Judge") with a specific focus on the equally horrifying scalp trade.

wes anderson kinda did the same thing with grand budapest which was essentially an ode to Stefan Zweig but stefan's writings more importantly. the man was poetically in love with europe where the destruction from the first world war tore his poor heart out. the second world war was simply to too much for him to the point where he and his wife took an absurdly romantic (and tragic) all-is-lost overdose of barbiturates. THAT is the story of the grand budapest hotel and THAT is m. gustav

in an irony of sorts, while mccarthy's taste for the macabre is mostly kept on a leash in grand budapest, wes anderson brilliantly manages to simultaneously poke fun at Zweig's greatest treasure while ever so delicately cherishing every single bit of it. and him.
