    Where the Wild Things Are. I can proudly say that this is the most bizarre children's film I've ever seen. This Spike Jonze film is a really good movie; half of the time. The first half of the film, although very beautiful, is something of a jumbled mess. This would be fine if the Wild Things were truly being wild, but instead, in a weird writing decision, Spike Jonze decides that he wants to make the wild things talk and…

    Never thought I would see a film like this.

    Spike Jonze creates a beautiful film about the power of imagination, the wonders of childhood, and the miracle that is a loving family.

    As I get older, I barely remember those days of pure "wildness" and I miss it. As I just lost my best friend that I've known since the first grade to cancer a few months ago, I can't help but feel older, I can't help but feel more…

    I have read that this film is not necessarily a children's movie, although it is about a child, and upon watching it I firmly agree. Going back 10 years, I think 10 year old me would have either not found this film exciting enough or else would have found it quite emotional without really knowing why. But me now, almost 20 years old, found this film to be heartfelt and imaginative,…

    Near perfect fantasy comedy that is a very well acted picture and is a visually treat for the eyes. Spi9ke Jonze crafts something unique, entertaining and captivating, and it’s one of those movies that is fun for people of all ages. With wonderful effects that enhance and doesn’t cheapen the plot, Jonze delivers a film that looks great and boasts a simple, yet thoroughly engaging story because it keeps the basics straight forward and doesn’t try to overdo anything to…

    I wish I could go back in time and kick my own ass for thinking it was okay to first purchase a ticket to this and then to sit through it. Though I didn't really sit as much as I writhed in pain from what my eyes and ears had to take in from this shit.

    I honestly cannot remember the last time I *hated* a movie as much as I hated this one.

    The whole time I was watching it, I just kept getting angrier and angrier, at all these super creative people collaborating on a project that was so aggressively off-putting. From that Cassavettes-ish opening (Max's parents are divorced, his mom is dating someone new, and they're struggling with money), to the constant shaky cam, to that oh-so-twee indie rock music that plays throughout...for…

    After Adaptation I was really hoping I would like Spike Jonze as a director as he had a good concept but It just got too ridiculous. So I decided I would watch another one of his movies which Is a movie I have gotten recommended to me constantly and now I have finally seen 2009 Fantasy Drama Where The Wild Things Are. Which I have to make something clear while this movie Is about a kid THIS IS NOT A…

    You know that feeling when you suddenly realize that you know what it feels like to be a kid, and that you understand kids more than you ever thought you would, and all the things that makes kids tick just makes all the sense in the world?

    No?

    Watch this film, and you will.

    ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ penetrates an inner, rarely touched upon, vessel of sadness that has been lodged into the depths of my core for seemingly an eternity. The exposition of the film is littered with jump cuts, rapid camera movement, and of course childhood snowball fights and igloos, so obviously... yes, after about 20 minutes or so I had tears dripping down my cheeks and I longed for one more snow day with my mother.

    Certainly one of the…
