Moviefone asks if Where the Wild Things Are is for kids.fantastic-mr-fox

Variety gave a fairly positive review to Fantastic Mr. Fox, while Wes Anderson tells /Film about directing it from a distance.

-I love stories about fonts, and NBC just got sued for infringing on the trademarks of one.

It’s Gary Shandling’s Show is finally coming to DVD.

-It’s pretty predictable, but I still liked this list of the 10 “Coolest” bookstores in the U.S.

-It’s a cover song, but it’s still new LCD Soundsystem, so check out Bye Bye Bayou.

New music spotlight:

Mumford & SonsSigh No More

Is London the new Montreal?  Just as seemingly every indie buzz-band five years ago hailed from Montreal, many of this year’s talked about acts are part of an emerging folk scene that’s formed in London over the past few years.  Following the success of Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale, and, to a lesser extent, Johnny Flynn, Mumford & Sons has just released a self-assured debut that’s as good as anything to come out of that scene thus far.  Fans of The Frames or Johnny and the Moon will find something to like here, and lead singer Marcus Mumford sounds a lot like the former band’s lead singer, Once star Glen Hansard, though he also recalls Josh Ritter, Caleb Followill (Kings of Leon), and a bit of Michael Stipe.  Intrigued?:
