Any thoughts on this one? I finally got to see it yesterday. It was good, but also disappointing, if that makes any sense. It started off really, really slow, but the ending was better. It's kind of like Wes is losing his 'quirkiness' in this one. Not nearly as funny as the others. The soundtrack didn't have the same effect on me as the others as well, although the David Bowie guy was funny. I think I'm going to lick my wounds and watch Bottle Rocket again....

Bloody hell. I didn't even know Wes Anderson was making another movie. Shows you how out of the loop I am.

Oi. I'm seeing it tomorrow. I've been hearing what you just said a lot.

I saw it. I actually liked it a lot. I was a more let down by Royal Tennenbaums, I still liked it but not as much.
Rushmore will always be my fave.
The Life soundtrack is actually pretty good. The guitar player reminded me of the guy in Something About Mary.
I can see your points but at the same time how much quirkier can you get?
I always think I'm going to be the only one in the theatre at his movies.

Defoe's accent was hysterical by the way.

Saw it and loved it. ...Why is the Sigur Ros song not on the soundtrack, though? Grrr.... The Brazilian guitar player, who plays samba versions of old David Bowie songs, was also in "City of God," by the way. Random, eh?

I really dug the music, all of the Bowie stuff was great to hear.

And Willem Dafoe was excellent in it. I loved the part with crossing the line, lol.
