Where the Wild Things Are

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I’ll be the first to admit that I’d heard of “Where the Wild Things Are” but never remember reading it or having it read to me. No, for some odd reason the only association I had with the book was seeing it on a fraternity T-shirt advertising a party and seeing the somewhat scary and/or disturbing...

  • Excerpt: It is impossible to tell where this screen adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are would have ended up without Max Records. He is the human star of the film, mingling with monsters that represent his thoughts, feelings, and actions.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: For a film with a $100 million budget, 'Where the Wild Things Are' was a pretty big box office disappointment during its theatrical release. This is the sort of movie, however, that begs for rediscovery on home video.

  • Conclusion: Fans of the book will likely be surprised, and purists might even be outraged (childhood memories are hallowed ground) but this Where the Wild Things Are has a sweet, sad beauty all its own, respectably commemorated in this generous multi-format edition. Product Details

Where the Wild Things Are Movie Review

BigPictureBigSound
16 October 2009
  • Summary: Spike Jonze's beautifully audacious and sadly flawed film brings Maurice Sendak's much-beloved, nine-sentence children's story to vivid, CGI-enhanced life. If only he had kept it a short story.

Where The Wild Things Are

Cinema Blend
16 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The question going into Where The Wild Things Are is, can childlike wonderment be sustained for an entire film? Can Spike Jonze, who has never made a bad movie, take Maurice Sendak's rough-edged, slim picture book and give it the scope of a story for adults?

Where The Wild Things Are

AV Club
15 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Spike Jonze has recently said in interviews that his chief goal in adapting Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are was to try to capture the feeling of being 9. By that measure—by just about any measure, really—he succeeded wildly.

In Theaters: Where the Wild Things Are

movieline
12 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The opening scenes of Where the Wild Things Are capture a very specific moment in childhood anomie. It's a barely post-70's, post-divorce, snowflake sweater moment that is in fact so specific that it does that magic thing of flipping lanes over into the timeless, accessing some core of knowledge of...

Empire Online
30 July 2010
  • Conclusion: A film for anyone who’s ever climbed trees, grazed knees or basked in the comfort of a parent’s sympathy as they’ve pulled you off the ground crying. It’ll make your inner child run wild.
