I've always loved the book Where The Wild Things are, so I got pretty excited when I heard that there was a movie coming out. I'm sure most of you were, since there's been a lot of talk about it in the blogging world.
Finally it came out, and my friend and I went and saw it last night. Wow. It was amazing. I don't even know how to begin to explain it. It had a great soundtrack, it was funny and sad, whimsical. The list goes on. The costumes in particular I loved. The monsters weren't animated, but instead huge costumes were made that were operated from the inside. Only the faces were animated by using CGI.
There are two quotes I remember from the movie.
"I think we broke the king."
"He does have a double recracker."
My friend and I burst out laughing at them while the rest of the cinema was completely silent. Sorry about that.
If only you could really jump into a tiny boat and sail away to an mystical land...
