Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with celebrated author Maurice Sendak to bring one of the most beloved books of all time to the big screen -- Where the Wild Things Are -- a classic story about childhood and the places we go to figure out world in which we live. When rambunctious and sensitive young Max (Max Records) feels misunderstood at home, he escapes to an island where he meets mysterious and strange creatures, the Wild Things, whose emotions are as wild and unpredictable as their actions. The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. As leader, Max promises to create a place where everyone will be happy, but he soon discovers that ruling his kingdom is far from easy.]]>

|Blu-Ray combo pack - question about bonus features||

It is subtitled, not dubbed, so you should be fine.

|"Where the Wild Things Are"...from my own childhood...||
In the book there's a page where the boy is chasing his dog with a fork in his hand. I'm wondering what's supposed to be so joyous and fun about that. Movie was spot on. It's a pretty dark book.

Considering that you can't even complete your thought as a complete sentence, I'm assuming this picture simply wasn't tailor made to please you. For many people, myself included, this was one of the most amazing film experiences I've had as an adult and easily my favorite film of 2009 (and no, I... Read More
