[7.25/10] Moonrise Kingdom (2012)


QuickRating: "Fantastic Mr. Fox." director Wes Anderson's latest  feature may be a bit too bizarre for more traditional viewers, but this dreamy, surreal, and delightfully whimsical kids' adventure is still unique and charming in it's own way. The acting is top-notch, and the relationship between the two protagonists is genuinely adorable, plus, set in the mid 60s, "Moonrise Kingdom" has a cool retro vibe to it, shown through the vividly warm color palette and vibrant visuals.

Mel, I always expect nothing less then great from Wes Anderson, and he didn't disappoint me with this one wither. It's quirky, it's sweet, and it's pretty unique. You should give it a go. :)
