So I went to see Spike Jonze' movie Where the Wild Things Are with a very dear old friend of mine who absolutely loves the book last night.

Yeah, it's a really wonderful movie. I kind of would like to see it again, since I wasn't able to get quite as into it as I liked (thanks to my friend's six-year old, who was fidgety for much of it), but it's brilliant, visually and artistically.

That was my favorite arm! )

The movie is unquestionably a trifle slow in the middle, and when I asked the six-year old I saw it with if he liked it, he answered, "It was long." Long, but not terrifying, and he and the rest of us laughed out loud at times. I really liked Bob and Terri, as well, and I wish the movie had shown us what happened to Richard. I feel that he's probably okay, though.

Special bonus discussion of the trailers that we saw!
  1. Another Chipmunks movie. Direct quote from me: "My childhood is crumbling before my eyes!" (and that was before the Chipettes appeared singing "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)").
  2. The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I am still so excited for this movie. Fantastic.
  3. Some movie about an astronaut who gets stranded on a suburban planet where the natives are terrified of aliens. "You're an alien!" "No, you are!" "No, you!" Oh, brother.
  4. A Disney Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey playing...everyone, no thanks to Robert Zemeckis, who, not content with ruining one beloved Christmas story with his trademark blend of the worst of CGI and live-action filmmaking (cough! The Polar Express! cough!), is all set to wreak havoc on another. We do not approve.
