I'm really looking forward to seeing this film. Where the Wild Things Are was one of my favorite books as a child, and I look forward to seeing how the imagination and creativity of the story are captured on film.

I see Where the Wild Things Are as more of an art film than a children's film.

The movie really reminded me of "Into the Wild". That movie was about a young adult who desperately wanted to explore the world and find every answer to life that could be found. Where the Wild Things Are seemed very similar. One reason I think this is because everything alternated so much. One second you couldn't help but laugh and the next, you felt positive that something absolutely horrible was about to happen. I also got the picture of a boy who, instead of exploring the world he has, creates his own world in order to answer all of the questions that could be found only in his life.

I'll be honest. I didn't like the movie all that much, but I appreciate the ability to remind an adult of what it was like to be ten years old.
