Director Wes Anderson
blew the minds of kids, adults and stoners alike this year with "Fantastic Mr. Fox
." The stop-motion animated film might not have gobbled up a massive budget like "Avatar
," but it still managed to be one of the more visually captivating movies we've seen in a while.
Anderson's take on the Roald Dahl
book works in plenty of the director's signature moves: offbeat humor, an impeccable soundtrack and clever characters. Like an anthropomorphic Tenenbaum clan, the Fox family is just a tad more stylish than your average burrow dwellers.
When the DVD hits stores on March 23, plenty of people will want to snag a copy to add some of Mr. Fox's smarts to their permanent collections. Good news: We're giving some away.
