WhERE tHE WiLD ThiNGS ArE!!!!

Post by Shiney on Tue Oct 13, 2009 9:31 pm






There is no way I can be the only geezer excited to see this.!?!?

This book has been a favorite of mine since I was a toddler...and it's a favorite of my sons, which we still read.

When I first heard they were movifying it I crnged, wept and spat around...but then last spring...I saw a teaser trailer. It looked promising. A month ago they started running the actual trailers and I was sold. SOLD!!!

We took the boys to see 'Cloudy With A Chacne Of Meatballs" and the long version trailer for WTWTA ran...and Dear sweet Lord, I am on it!!!!

There I ahve said all I need to...you may now make fun or chime in.

I am SO looking forward to this! Like you, I was bitter when I heard they were making a movie, but it looks really good. Also, the music seems to fit it perfectly. Excited!

I LOVE this book! I am scared for the movie, though. It's the music in the trailers that kills it for me, but I'm definitely seeing it. The monsters look AWESOME!

I like alot of lo-fi "Indie" rock and that sort of music, so that doesnt scare me at all....

I had a big grin on my face the whole time. Please, God, don't let it suck.

I saw it! Won't post spoilers but will put out a general warning - I'm REALLY sensitive to hand helds and almost vomited multiple times and finally had to leave the theater, which sucks. I can take 4 day train rides, subway after subway, but not a handheld on the big screen.

Uhm, the few minutes I ended up seeing I really liked, actually, in terms of the color pallete and puppetry. The monster's looked amazing and all their voices were perfect. I really can't talk to story because of, you know, the cursing under my breath that there aren't Motion Sickness warnings on films. There was a lot of stuff about mood disorders and not being able to control your anger.

Oh, Max really was Max, like, the kid was totally perfect for it and his little pajama wolf thing was great.

It's probably not good for little kids, there was a puppet dismemberment.

The one complaint I've heard is that it's a sad movie. Or not sad but depressing, like no one is happy in it. I guess that's got some fans of the book a little up-in-arms.

Way excited as well, again like many millions around the world i grew up with the book too.

Even more excited that it was filmed down here where i live in lovely old Melbourne and surrounds! Just watching the trailer it gives me a thrill to see places i'm familiar with like the cliffs of Bushrangers Bay, the charred eucalypt forest of Gembrook and giant boulders of the You Yangs!

Beautiful otherworldly environments rendered even more surreal by what looks like a great film.

Went to see this with my daughter tonight. It's not mind blowingly good, but I was very satisfied. The monsters were perfect!

It was very melancholy and the story was a bit thin, but the visuals were superb. Highly recommended!

I always thought the book was terribly sad and somewhat disturbing, so that is a big plus for the movie imo.

Because I never go to the movies...I only just watched this On Demand....and loved it. far from a feel good film, it's is visually stunning and heart wrenchingly sad and achingly wonderful at the same time.

Shiney digs it.

We have this on DVD, but I have not revisited it. Maybe this weekend.

Just watched it tonight. Several of my friends warned me how slow and lousy it is. I thought it rocked. Dark, sad, and definitely psychological. I thought the dialogue had a lot of charm and totally dug this movie. I'll probably never watch it again, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. And the soundtrack ROCKED. It's Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!
