Standard

Saw this movie on Friday upon it’s nation-wide release and YES – I LoVED it.. It’s a funny, darkly comical romp of a movie that never stops moving and making you laugh.  It’s one of those movies that make you want to go find this extraordinary hotel and stay there just for the fun ride it seems to be. It’s set in a time & place (inbetween the 2 World Wars) though that sadly, we’ve missed and I for one, would love to get back to.  The supporting cast & cameos here make this movie even better especially Willem Dafoe who plays the most comic, fun villan ever.. and Ray Fiennes, who hasn’t been seen in a really good lead role such as this in a while..& Tony Revolori have you in stitches from the get go until the end.. This is by far one of Wes Anderson’s best pictures yet for me and I’ve liked pretty much all of them.  He has a way with this type of genre that just works and I love watching it unfold into a good movie.  Is it Oscar material – way to early for that and I’m on the fence for just that reason as you never know what else is to come..But is it the best new movie of 2014 so far.. yep..I will say that..I recommend this in a big way for everyone to see though I do get it’s not for everyone..or the genre isn’t.. For me it was a fun ride.. Grade: B+
