And the award goes to....the trailer

After seeing Where The Wild Things Are on Sunday, I came to the conclusion that the trailer, featuring that Arcade Fire song "Wake Up" was actually better than the movie itself. I can't really explain why I didn't enjoy the movie. Maybe it was because every scene was scored by Karen-o or because the movie really didn't give me a sense of childhood. What was my childhood like? I don't know but it sure was better exemplified by the trailer and not the film.

Spike Jonze made an incredibly beautiful visual film, but I got lost in the movie a few times. I'm not sure if that was supposed to happen, because the actual book itself was only 25 pages. How do you make a full length movie out of a 25 page children's story book? I guess that's what it looks like.

I know you've all seen this, but for one last time:

What did you think?

love always,

quite possibly the worst movie critic, ever.

PS_Speaking of trailers, I hope this one doesn't disappoint
