Wes Anderson's "Fantastic Mr. Fox" Will be Rereleased on February 18th & "Move Mountain" Short [UPDATED]

 The Citerion Collection, on the 18th of this month is going to rerelease what I like to call, 'the most perfect Stop Motion film ever made' also known as Fantastic Mr. Fox.  I'm pretty sure that you've heard me go on, and on about how much I like this film so theres no need for me to repeat it.  For Citerion, it's a big deal because of it being their first animated film to rereleased; they have been around since 1984!  In case you weren't aware, according to Wikipedia:

"The Citerion Collection is dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in a editions of the highest technical quality, with supplemental features that enhance the appreciation of the art of the film.  Citerion is noted for helping to standardize the letterbox format
for widescreen films, bonus features, and special editions for home video."

That being said, I am super excited to see the bonus features.  Though I don't care much for higher quality, it makes little difference for me.  Seeing
it in the theater in 2009 was a great experience and I don't think any blu ray can top that.  And again, Mr. Fox, is no exception for being a screen novelty, if you will.

Another great Stop Motion find, this one called Move Mountain
