Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)

!!! Seen it in December 2009 !!!

Angry farmers, tired of sharing their chickens with a sly fox, look to get rid of their opponent and his family. [imdb]

Nominated for 2 Oscars:

Best Original Score
Best Animated Feature

This year's Oscar race for Animated Feature really was something. All the nominees were kind of special, different, creating a very diverse list. Fantastic Mr. Fox might just be the unique one, to stand out through style, direction and most witty adapted screenplay.
It does have its less interesting moments, but even then Mr. Fox is such a fascinating creation to look at, the small dolls are delicious, the music is great, everything is very meticulously created. It deserves its nominations + one for Adapted Screenplay would have also been in place. All together, it's a fun, relaxing movie experience.
My rating for the film: 8/10. I love this puppet style. All I could wish for is another Wallace & Gromit full-length animated.
