Where the Wild Things Are

Spike Jonze brings the world of Maurice Sendak’s legendary children’s book to life. Max (Max Records) is wild and rambunctious – and the way any young boy might be – sometimes a little too much. The real world, however, is no match for Max’s imagination and when his antics lead his mother (Catherine Keener) to send him to bed, young Max decides to sail beyond the confines of his room to a magical world where he meets new friends including, Carol (James Gandolfini) and KW (Lauren Ambrose) and embarks on the greatest adventure.

Rated PG

    I hope you don’t mind me adding some brief reviews.

    2012-While I admit to tearing up a bit, the film itself isn’t worth it. Save your 2 hours plus and take a nap.

    Gentlemen Broncos-I loved Napolean Dynamite and thought Eagle Vs. Shark was ok but I had high hopes for this after seeing the trailer. Well, let’s just say that it didn’t live up to my self raised hype. This movie was worse than Nacho Libre and the two funniest characters were hardly in it. Do yourself a favor and spend your time watching the next film.

    Ponyo-I’ve been a fan of Miyazaki since I first saw Spirited Away several years ago. This movie is amazing, especially in HD. It’s great for the kids as my daughter will atest to. She watched it a couple of times and asked all her friends at school if they had seen it.
