Things are DRASTIC! This is not Fantastic.

I'm quite the fan of Road Dahl books and my favourite one of all was Fantastic Mr Fox - the smart little fella steals chickens from this nasty old cider addict farmers called Boggis, Bunce and Bean. I remember his tail gets shot off in one upsetting chapter and his wife tells him that she still fancies him without the big bush, perhaps Roald suffered from limp-dick at the time of writing, perhaps best not to read too much into it. Anyway Wes Anderson has done a version of Fantastic Mr Fox and it appears to my untrained eye to be UTTER SHITE. It all just looks too cheap and wrong, like a badly synched BBC2 kids show from 1982.
