$2 Tuesday: The Fantastic Mr. Fox at University Mall

I saw this movie when it opened, and I liked it enough that I want to see it again. It's based on a Roald Dahl story which I haven't read, so I can't comment on the book-to-screen transition. wink But it's funny, sly, and weird, so I recommend it. It's a stop-motion animation story of a fox and his woodland friends who launch an all-out war against the local chicken farmers.

The lead characters are voiced by George Clooney and Meryl Streep. RottenTomatoes.com says 93% of the critics who reviewed it liked it, and sums it up thusly: "Consensus: Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightfully funny feast for the eyes with multi-generational appeal -- and it shows Wes Anderson has a knack for animation."

Reminder that traffic headed west towards the theater has been horrible lately, so leave earlier than you think you need to! Movie starts at 7:15 so let's try to grab seats a little after 7.

See you there!

    It was great meeting everyone. The movie and conversations were fun.

    I would be glad to run an introductory RPG session for those interested. :-D

    Terrific movie, great conversation afterward at Saxby's. Newcomer Brian was the big door prize winner; an air freshener disguised as a baseball!

    Clever, humorous, and crazy. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I really loved it. Definitely worth the $2. And such a great group of people came out as well! Fun times.

    If you haven't seen this movie, do yourself a big favor and go. One of the best movies I've seen all year. Enchanting and absolutely delightful from beginning to end.
