"I do my part!"
To this day my favourite and a very intelligent sci-fi-film.
I unterstand people who don't like Wes Anderson movies. They are special, all of them. Also this one. For myself his kind of filmmaking is interesting, sometimes disturbing and sometimes leaves me with the feeling that many things could be more believable and effective without his style.
In Moonrise Kingdom this happends not often, but mostly when the two main characters talk to each other. It feels just sometimes kind of flat and rushed. But - that totally fits in…
I really like this film, but would still not say that it is a good star wars movie. The story is sometimes very "borrowed", the action loses more and more tension and the most star-wars-like-moments are only the references to the old trilogy. But as i said. I like this film. Because of the characters, the wonderful practical effects and of course because it is
nevertheless a star wars movie.
