Review: Where the Wild Things Are

I was lucky enough to be invited to a pre-screening of Where the Wild Things Are with my gf Nicole last night. She had 2 tickets so after getting my father in law to watch AJ (Jay had dart league) I went out to a much needed "girl time" night. We got there early (so we thought) and the theatre was already packed. After finally finding seats (these people are vicious I tell you!), and not getting any snacks (they told us they werent allowing people in and out of the theatre lol. ANYWAY... before the movie started a preview came on for a new Sandra Bullock film called "The Blind Side". Looks like a great flick check out the previews here!

Ok on to the review! The movie was..hmm.. strange. I loved the book as a child and it is one of AJ's current faves. However, I was a bit skeptical of children being scared of the "monsters" in the movie. They actually were not scarey at all! However, the plot, along with the 1 hour 40 min runtime, was a bit much for me and Nic, let alone the little kids. Overall, cute movie, but I wouldnt waste the $50 it costs for the movies nowadays to see it in theatre. Wait for Redbox instead ;)


  1. The cinematography of WTWTA was impressive, no doubt, but it seemed to be missing a "spark" of some kind... maybe it was just too low energy from beginning to end for me (or at least after the first ten minutes)

  2. Thanks for the review. The monsters being too scary was a major concern of mine, especially since I have heard that the new Scrooge movie is a bit scary. I just may take your advice and wait for the redbox and save my money for something I anticipate much more in the next couple of weeks...New Moon! :)
