  • Summary: Based on the popular book by Maurice Sendak, when Max is sent to bed without supper, he creates his own world populated by wild beasts who crown Max their new king. This movie is not a same to be strange and that is what I should see in movies for now on.

  • Summary: This movie didn't make a lot of sense the majority of the time, but it didn't have to- it's not our world, it's Max's world. A very strange, very good movie.

  • Summary: Never have I seen a film that captures the essence of childhood so earnestly. It completely encompasses the imagination, thoughts, emotions, fears, and wonder that we all go through in our early years. This isn't a straight-forward narrative, but rather an intellectual and visual experience that is told through the raw outburst of feelings from our main character. The experience isn't unlike being transported into the world of a storybook, which I assume was the intent.

  • Summary: I don't know what this movie was trying to do, but it didn't do it. They were all over the board on this one.

  • Summary: A really poignant and sadder film than you might expect, given the source material. It's an adult look at growing up, viewed through a child's eyes (if that makes sense.) There are simple, but compelling conversations about friendship, anger, and love that resonate deeply. Also, the film's creature effects are superb and so is the soundtrack by the incomparable Karen O.

  • Summary: This movie is so touching and somewhat heartbreaking as Spike Jonze vividly recalls the loneliness and frustration of childhood. It's a magnificent imaginative adventure that is very touching; and the music is beautiful, particularly the tracks by Karen O. and the Kids, but the score itself is just as complex and beautiful as the film itself. People of all ages could relate.

  • Summary: The best part of the whole movie is the re-re-cracker conversation. lol. I loved it. And, from what I can remember, it was an excellent children's book as well.

Be Still!

  • Excerpt: The memories are just flooding back. The wild rumpus has started yet again in Mike Jonze's adaptation of the book Where the Wild Things Are. Often movies fail to live up to the hype of well-loved books or end up destroying the book in order to shorten the story: this was not a problem with this incredibly short children's novel.
