Wes Anderson's 'Uncanny X-Men' Sets New Wes Anderson Aping Standard

The "What if Wes Anderson directed..." genre is by no means a new one, but it's one that remains tough to actually do well. A string of symmetrically-shot references to Anderson's prior films does not an effective parody make. So kudos to Patrick Willems--who previously brought us Ingmar Bergman's The Flash--for really going for it with his Wes Anderon-style, largely Tenenbaum-based X-Men. "A" for effort, and for not just using blue-and-yellow Adidas tracksuits for the costumes.
