Boring and Bland

This movie lacked the humor, life, playfulness, imagination, and other human emotions. Max should have been betrayed as a regular brat boy at the age of 7 or 8. I always liked wolves, and thought that a boy would like them too. If you like symbolism, he could a lone wolf. The book also uses words in a playful manner. For example, Max tells his mother in a playful but mischievous way, "I'll eat you up." In the book, the mother and son, seemed to have a great relationship, but Max was just acting like any kid would. When disciplined he imagines going to the wild things, which he treats just like his mother treated him. His parents didn't have any "dramas" in their lives as this movie portrayed, but he was reacting as any kid would when they are not getting their own way. Kids also tend to copy their parents' behavior, which was done nicely in the book, but not in the movie. Max's stomach started to growl, which made him want to go back home. Also in the book, he felt lonely and knew his mother loved him, which made him leave the wild things. The movie didn't show this at all. Becoming a king was also meaningful because all kids dream about being a king, queen, prince, or princess. The wild things were supposed to be his friends, and part of Max's mind, for they also said, "we love you so, we could just eat you up." This is also what adults say when they think a kid is cute, and Max probably heard that from adults. I would have rather seen a scene with that in the human world than the other added crap they included in this movie. The monsters bored me and were completely lifeless. Basically, Max was unbelievable, and crazy; which made the wild things unbelievable and crazy too. The characters that were added, were not necessary. The director should have spent the time expanding on the ideas included in the book instead of adding unnecessary and confusing situations that destroyed the heart of the story and the moral values that made the book a children's classic. I felt bored, let down, sad-hopeless, confused, and bewildered at the storyline/plot. What was the point of it all? How did the story become so complex? The simplicity of the book made it enjoyable for children and adults. The director tried to make a reason for Max's behavior to make the story more interesting, but it just made it into a movie that do one could relate to nor enjoy. Come on, really? What was the reason for Max's behavior? He was a kid. Just that. His mom? Just a mom. No adult 'dramas.' My suggestion is to just read the book.

After Reading "Heads On And We Shoot", I fell in love with the film

When watching this movie, I convinced myself not to like it and to shame upon it for being dark and depressing, unlike Sendak's book which I grew up with. After reading "Heads On and We Shoot: The Making of Where the Wild Things Are" I fell in love with the movie. The amount (many years, in fact) of time that went into making this movie along with the minimal cast and crew diced in with some fresh and unique storytelling, neat cinematography, and a wonderful director who created bonds and friendships with almost everyone on set made this movie so enjoyable to watch again and again, although my family did not necessarily like the constant tidbits of awesome information that I spewed out throughout the film the third time I watched it.

Pretentious bonanza

Visually stunning for the first 2-minutes of the introduction of the Henson inspired CGI/puppetry later seamlessly meshing into the dreary background of bland colors used in the film. From director Spike Jonze "to make a movie about childhood rather than to create a children's movie." with a niche idea the end result was a drawn out one- dimensional gloomy film with a self-fulfilling ending all pitched to who?
