Review: 'Fantastic Mr. Fox'

Some artists have a way of riveting your vision with the certitude of what they do. This has nothing to do with subject or style. It's inexplicable. Andy Warhol and Grandma Moses. The spareness of Bergman and the Fellini circus. Wes Anderson is like that. There's nothing consistent about his recent work but its ability to make me go ZOOINNG! What else do "The Darjeeling Limited" and "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou" have in common?

Review: 'Old Dogs'

"Old Dogs" is stupefyingly dimwitted. What were John Travolta and Robin Williams THINKING of? Apparently, their agents weren't perceptive enough to smell the screenplay in its advanced state of decomposition, but wasn't there a loyal young intern in the office to catch them at the elevator and whisper, "You've paid too many dues to get involved with such crap at this stage in your careers."
