Many claimed it to be the box office smashing hit of the year. The hit movie of the fall fun for children and adults. With grade A cast of actors and a seemingly wild soundtrack what could go wrong? Where the wild things are turned to be a wild wash up in many eyes. By Wayne Audibert.
Spike Jonze movie based off of the 1963 children’s book was suppose to be the leader of the falls heat wave of movies with pumped up trailers and a cast of actors such as Forest Whitaker and James Gandolfini and a soundtrack made by an artist as unique as the story what would be the problem. Taking a 9 cent children’s book and making it into a hour an half movie is no easy thing to do , however it was done creating a complex story that children won’t follow and a attempted humorous screenplay that adults will be bored with. The film had its joyful times its sad times and its suspenseful times. Just no heavy tears or loud laughter erupted in that theater. I’m not saying the movie was horrible just not that fall break out film like it was expected.
