Where the wild things are review
This film was hyped for at least a year before it's release in 2009, yet we still didn't manage to see it until this afternoon. It was worth the wait.
This review is a different style. This time it will be a series of snippets of our opinions, given as we watched the film. A review live on twitter if you like.
R: please can we watch where the wild things are
E: Sunday afternoon fun - Where the Wild Things are
E: Poor Max, one disturbed boy. Like his drawings at the start though especially the Warner Bros one
E: "woman feed me....I'll eat you up" - I like his monster style in where the wild things are. I'd laugh if R said that to me!
E: No no no, not a real boat, he's meant to be in bed without any dinner and then dream
R: "this film but be written by a different person than the book coz it's muddled"
R: he's there now
R: good job his costume is White or you wouldn't seem him in the forest
R: the monsters are funny, cute and furry
R: I think this is part of the dream in the book
R: the monsters have huge heads
E: Wow those monsters are repeating the messages Max clearly here's at home - really disturbing
E: I knew all the secrets in the world - perfect childhood dream
R: their heads probably could explode but it'd be very big
E: I want a sadness shield
R: he's lieing about being 20, or perhaps it's true in his dream
E: was that Whoopi Goldberg?
R: cool jumping!
E: No better joy than the sound of a child's laugh and R thinks monsters attacking trees is hysterical
R: monster lick looks worse than mummy lick
E: "we forgot how to have fun" - never do that
E: was that voice George clooney?
R: some of the wild things look like real animals - ducks, goats and bears
R: whoa, cool fort with pretty flowers
E: that is a fantastic looking fort, in fact it looks really real!
R: the wild things are getting angry, why?
R: they did the interrupting cow joke :)
E: that joke's fab.
R: why are they fighting?
R: what does he mean - you always step on my head?
R: Max doesn't have any special
R: it's snowing, they think Max made it happen
R: the goat is clever
E: Poor max - all the problems are blamed on him again.
R: max is scared. But he really tried hard to make it nice for the wild things
R: it's so sad when Max leaves the wild things
R: very good but sad at end but then happy. Wild things are just like in book. Film is as good as the book. Need mummy 2 cuddle at end
R: too scary and sad, need to be 5 or more to watch I think.
E: I am blown away with how well the wild things emerged onto the screen, they were just as I imagined they'd be if they walked off the pages of the book.
So there it is, now over to you.....
