It's a Wes Anderson movie, made with stop-action figures that on the big screen are gorgeously iconic and detailed, and yet still true to a kind of parody of a certain genre (mostly Japanese, but other nation's too, sci-fi movie conventions from the 1950s and '60s etc.) that give the film a lot of its style.

Add in the voices of iconic movie stars, and other kinds of stars—e.g. Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Yoko Ono, et. al.—for the dogs as well as humans, and you get a very pleasurable and satisfying movie experience.
