      This is a stop animation movie. I thought it was going to be boring but it was not. It also has 2 languages, Japanese and English. The boy speaks Japanese but the dogs speak English. The movie is about a boy's security dog who was banished to a island with other dogs by an evil uncle who was ruler of the country. The boy sets off in search of his dog in a daring adventure. In the meantime there are others who are trying to stop the ruler from destroying the dogs. I don't want to be a spoiler but you will enjoy the movie. It was sad and funny. It had a great ending.

      Now for months I have been waiting for this Blu-ray to come out. I saw the film in the theaters and I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed by it on my first viewing. So when I saw the uniqueness of the slipcover (having the Blu-ray+Digital copy banner on the side) I knew this would have to go into the collection. So I picked it up and popped it into the Blu-ray player and man I have to say it looked great on my TV. After my second viewing I appreciated the film more and I would recommend it to anyone who likes dogs, dry comedy, and stop motion animation. I give it an 8/10

      Quirky Canine Tale

      If you're a Wes Anderson fan, you'll know what to expect: A whimsical tale of a boy trying to save his dog from his uncle Mayor, who wants to destroy all dogs because of a dog flu that has ravaged the country. But the dogs (who have been exiled to a trash island) won't go down without a fight. A 4K disc was rumored but did not come to light. The Blu-ray image seems as sharp and clear as a 4K disc. The lossless audio is fine. The extras are slim and the funniest one is a cast interview from their dog character's POV.

      The movie uses animals (dogs) to comment on actual conditions and circumstances that confront humans every day.It is poignant, yet comical at certain points. I love that it is entertaining, but keeps you thinking throughout the experience. This movie will make you question and think about parallels to the human condition. It is a total "breath of fresh air" in terms of plot and presentation compared with the myriad movies that are being made now. Great job and EXCELLENT movie!!!

      Though not Anime, Presented in animated format that mimicks Anime. Plot revolves around a Japanese city that has banned all dogs and exiled them to an Island that is used as a Garbage Dump. Tells the story of boy coming to the Island to rescue his dog; the dogs fight for survival and to restore their proper place in society. All Star cast voices the animated dogs. Fun trying to figure what star does the voice of what dog!

      Superb Wes Anderson Film

      It is unfortunate this film was not better received, but then again it is a typical and wisely crafted Wes Anderson film. While full of political intrigue and commentary, what sets is apart are 1) absolutely unique dialog for dogs and 2) truly wonderful facial and eye movements of the dogs. The stop animation really brings out the best in both. If you enjoy Wes Anderson films, this is a must buy!

      This director has made some film live action films and continues to develop a truly unique style and a singular vision in an otherwise glowingly homogenous medium. However, his animated films really are now some of the most interesting works ever produced. This is the latest in his remarkable filmography and a must have for the collection of any decerning film enthusiast.

      This movie is very different in terms of its art style. Everything is felt of fluff and of course it has that clay look. It’s very unique. The story feels original but with its fair share of stereo typical nuances. I’m glad I got to see it, certainly wish it’s pacing was just a bit faster, if it didn’t drag its feet as much, it would of been a better experience.
