Where the Wild Things Are

I saw this Saturday night. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I can see how it would be really scary for anyone under 7 or so, unless their parents regularly take them to R rated movies (Oh how I hate those people.) I wasn't all that excited when watching it, but was fascinated. But afterwards it's stuck with me. I keep thinking how well done it was, and the subtle lessons in there. Definitely worth seeing.

Yes, it did have lots of subtle lessons. It's one of those movies I don't have to see again at the theater, but I'll probably pick up a copy when it goes to DVD.

We loved the book at our house...my son is named Max and that was his favorite costume to dress up as for our book carnival. I have not yet seen the movie, but you can bet I will. Thanks for letting me know it's worth seeing.

I really want to see it. I might have to wait until it comes out on DVD since I'll be house poor for the rest of my life now. But I'm still excited.

I agree, I thought it was well-made, but maybe a little too depressing for my tastes, plus I didn't like any of the characters, they were all kind of selfish. But the creatures are way cool.
