Movie Reviews:

  • Gimly: I was very fond of _Fantastic Mr. Fox_, Wes Anderson’s first stop-motion animated faire. _Isle of Dogs_ less so. It’s most certainly not a bad movie, but my expectations were pretty midling and, personally, they were not met.

    _Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
