Now that the weekend has come and gone, it’s time for the moment of truth. As we noted in our weekend box office post, Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are came in at number one with moviegoers trampling the competition. That’s not bad for a movie based on a book that had like 5 lines in it. Where the Wild Things Are has been a staple in grade schools for decades, so it doesn’t matter if your 40 or 14 you’ve been exposed to this story. With that much of a following, we have to know one thing…did it live up to the hype?
Take our official poll on Where the Wild Things Are…
In my humble opinion, I thought the film did a great job at stretching out the story. Like I previously stated, there wasn’t a lot of material for Jonze to work with in the first place. He was able to produce a feature length film, without pointless filler scenes. Everything served a purpose, and I thought it was well executed, what about you?
