Where the Wild Things Are

Who else is excited for this? It was probably my favorite book when I was a kid, and I reread it yesterday and I still love the imagery. Sure, there's a chance it will be bullshit hipster pretentiousness, but I'm really looking forward to it and seeing how Jonze handles it.

I never really got into this book as a kid, I'm waiting for them to make In The Night Kitchen a movie.

I'm sure you'll find it if you browse the right child porn sites.

I saw the movie last Tuesday. There was a sneak preview here in Ann Arbor. (I got to meet Dave Eggers too.)

I have to say, the movie is fucking excellent. Better than I had expected. As kids films go, it feels fresh. (And also, I wouldn't take my 5 year old to see it.)

There wasn't much to get into. It was what 20 pages long and had a grand total of like 8 sentences? Even with that, it was my favorite book as a kid and I am pumped as hell to see this movie.

I really liked the book as a kid but the movie looks awful. It looks like Spike Jonze turned into an overly artsy film.
