Weekend Watchable: Wes Anderson’s Star Fox

Posted by March 12, 2011 Comment

If Nintendo’s Star Fox games (or Lylat Wars to us Brits) became a movie in the dry mode of Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox then its trailer could be something like this. Well, like this with the funny jokes taken out.

By not being completely nailed down to 90º angles and rigid poses either exactly in parallel or perpendicular to the screen plane, several shots in this trailer fail as satire even as they offer something more alive and relatable and less alienating than the real Fantastic Mr. Fox.
