Favorite Wes Anderson Movie

What's Your Favorite Wes Anderson Movie?

News about another Wes Anderson movie (even if it's not a Wes Anderson original) got me thinking about his ever-growing canon of work. I'll always be partial to Bottle Rocket because it was my first introduction to the brothers Wilson and I still crack up thinking about it, but I have a deep love for Rushmore, too. And who can deny the brilliance of The Royal Tenenbaums? And even though The Darjeeling Limited mostly flew beneath the radar I liked it well enough. On the other hand, some people aren't turned on at all by his trademark aesthetic and stories about dysfunctional families.

What do you think?

TENENBAUMS! my favorite movie of all time! my favorite quote comes from it: "everyone knows custer died at little big horn. what this book presupposes is...maybe he didn't?" LOL!

I love them all, except Darjeeling Limited. Rushmore is probably my favorite, with Royal Tenenbaums and Bottle Rocket not far behind.

Definitely Royal Tennenbaums. I've enjoyed all of them, though DL was my least favorite. I had to rewatch Life Aquatic to totally appreciate it, though.

I never realized how much he must love the wilson brothers. At least one of them is in almost every movie!

Shout out to my fellow UT alum! I've seen them all and for some reason i absolutely loved life aquatic the most. It was beautiful and creative and i loved the scene where they ambush the pirates. Willem Dafoe's best role...evvveerrrrr. (arguably)

Buzz, thanks for that poll! :) Wes Anderson is my favorite director and it's really hard to choose favorite film of his. It'slike picking favorite child. Maybe The Royal Tenenbaums? I'm like Eli, I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum.

I can't even decide - there's so many amazing moments in each movie - I definitely exceptionally love The Darjeeling Limited and The Royal Tenenbaums, but I think Rushmore is probably his best written - I love all anything Wes Anderson though...

It was really hard to pick between Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums. I had to go with Rushmore though, I think it just made me laugh more.

I LOVE Tennebaums. I have many fights defending that movie. So, I voted for that one. But to be fair, the only other one I have seen is Rushmore. I should get on that. The others just haven't looked as good. I've heard Bottle Rocket is good though...

He sorta reminds me of a slightly creepier Clay Aiken. Maybe that's bitchy, but I'm just sayin'.
