"Happiness is not always the best way to be happy."

For his first outing as a director since 2002's Adaptation, director Spike Jonze has revisited the thin line separating reality and fantasy to adapt Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book Where the Wild Things Are. Creating a feature-length motion picture from this source material posed a unique challenge, since the book is only ... read more

Where the Wild Things Are is a movie future generations will be talking about if there is any cosmic and artistic justice in this world. Why? Because it strikes so deeply at the core of childhood’s fragile and mercurial psyche filled with gloriously beautiful images and heartfelt performances. This is not a children’s film but a film about childhood in every painful and joyous moment.

After hearing the book is a famous children's book, I had intensions to see the film adaptation. After only seeing some clips and still pictures, this film reminded me a lot of Bridge To Terabithia. It does have its similarities with Where The Wild Things Are but there are a lot of differences between the two. It is the feelings that you have for them that make them similar. It has nothing to do w... read more

Nine-year-old Max (Max Records) chases the family dog, exerts his power over a fence in an imaginary game, digs a ... (more)

Movie Reviews (part 12) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: The first minutes of the film show a main child character with issues and anger problems that only a good psychologist can help or a kid with good imagination and self-insight that can change himself - luckily, we see how this one is of the latter. Great detailed looking monsters. It is a demanding film that tries to go a little deeper in a darker place than what is usual for what is basically a family movie. The Downs: It can be very hard to warm up to a main character that basical"
