adaptations

I was REALLY skeptical when I heard that Where the Wild Things are was being adapted to a movie. I figured it was going to be lame so I had no hope that it was going to be good. Especially when this book is famous on its own.
I have also seen how some of my favorite childhood books have been turned into film and they lost a lot of its appeal on the big screen.

But then I saw the trailer and it changed my mind.
I am now enthralled to go and see this movie.


Plus I want that monster suit Max is wearing for Halloween.
Plus plus, Arcade Fire's song seems so chilling and perfect for this trailer.
Plus plus plus, Karen O and Carter Burwell are combining their powers to create the soundtrack.
Plus plus plus plus plus Spike Jonze is directing the film with a GREAT cast to back him up?!

yay!

I've never heard of the book, but just watched the trailer and it looks so fun!!! I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for that!
