So. Did he make it through Paddington 2? What do we make of the vision of Britain it constructs? How does its action outperform Justice League’s? Is it fair to think of it as just Wes Anderson but somehow even more revoltingly cutesy? Is there anything wrong with outrageous accents? Isn’t Hugh Grant great, honestly?
