Quirky As Cuss: The Wes Anderson Fan Club

Tools    





Life Aquatic and Darjeeling Limited are two of my favourite ever films. The latter particularly I find is quite underrated. Anderson is amazing.
I think both can be considered underrated if you feel that way, particularly Life Aquatic which i think i've seen mentioned as his weakest the most. Personally those two are my least favourite, but i still quite like them. Haven't seen Grand Budapest yet but i think this is how i'd rank him:

01.Fantastic Mr Fox (was 7th on my favourites since 2000 and 2nd on my Animated lists)
02.Rushmore (Bill and Jason give my joint favourite performances in a Wes film along with Gene Hackman in The Royal Tenenbaums)
03.Moonrise Kingdom (was 12th or something on my best since 2000 list. Not actually sure if i like this or Rushmore better, i've seen this twice and Rushmore three times so i gave Rushmore the benifit of the doubt since it has held up on more watches)
04.Bottle Rocket (maybe his funniest, close between this and Rushmore for me)
05.The Royal Tenenbaums (despised this the first time i watched it. Think this is one of the few times my opinion has changed drastically on a rewatch, the only other one i can think of is Rear Window the opposite way.)
06.The Darjeeling Limited (pretty good but far off the top five for me personally)
07.The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (same as Darjeeling)



"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



So , I am planning on watching all the Wes Anderson movies in anticipation of his next film in March. I will start with Bottle Rocket next week and make a new thread for the next movie every two weeks like I did for PTA. Hope a couple people will join.

So you're gonna watch all of them?



I'm looking forward to reading your opinions on his filmography, @seanc. He's one of those special directors of which I can't say for sure what my favorite film of his truly is. They're all of such a similar high quality. It's probably Moonrise Kingdom, but that could change in a heartbeat if I'd rewatch one of his others.

I can't emphasize this enough, by the way, but his upcoming film looks freaking amazing to me. It feels like it's going to be Fantastic Mr. Fox but on an even crazier level. Can't wait to see it!

@seanc Seeing as there's only 2 months until Isle of Dogs comes out, when do you reckon we should start rewatching all the previous Wes Andersons?

Yeah man. Honestly I got so busy with women directors and getting back into the HOF this slipped my mind. We can move a little quicker. I will try and watch Bottle Rocket in the next couple days. If you watch it and want to create the thread I will tag it. Good reminder.



Wanted to mention that I've never seen Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom before, but I'm looking forward to when I eventually watch all of them.



Do you wanna party? Its party time!
I loved Isle of Dogs btw. Funny, delightful and very well made Wes Anderson movie. I saw it on the big screen in a showing with only two other people present, although it was an 11:30 PM showing on a winter Saturday night.
