Where The Wild Things Are....Whoooooo

I knew Leah would "want to stay home" for this movie so I dragged Dick...he was NOT excited a bit about seeing a kid flick. As it usually goes, if he complains a lot about something, that means he will like it the most....
and he did.

Dick and I loved this movie...we climbed right into the screen and ran with those wild things! Their dialog reminded me so much of my childhood friends and I in the 50's/60's, running in the ditches and alleys of my neighborhood.... we were wild too. "Wit-a-woo, wit-a wooo"

Don't worry if you don't have any kids to go to this movie with...if you need a good escape... seeing "Where The Wild Things Are" is a way to go back to your childhood again and play a little. It was heartfelt.


Note: This is not a movie for very young children or those that are easily scared I wouldn't think. It's about a 9 year old boy. The wild things are children with feelings....each wild thing represented a different feeling. There were a lot of teenagers in the movie theater settled in to enjoy the ride..I'm sure they had loved the book. Bottom line, only you know what is best for your child....have them watch the trailers before you go.

Charlotte says: Glad to hear you liked this movie. I read that it isn't a 'kids movie' it's a 'movie about kids'. My grandkids want me to take them.

You and Dick are very young at heart! I would never have thought to see this and will add it to my movie list.

We like so many of the same things. I think it would be a great movie and plan to see it. Hopefully with my Mom and Dad. They love the movies. Of course they haven't been since last spring before Dad got sick. Hopefully we can see it this winter when it comes out on dvd. Blessings

The cinematography of this movie was impressive, no doubt, but it seemed to be missing something; maybe it was just too low energy from beginning to end (or at least after the first ten minutes)
