wild things

We saw Where the Wild Things Are yesterday. It was visually gorgeous but otherwise a bit disappointing. I'm not really sure what the intended audience is. Despite being based on a classic children's book, it really isn't a movie for kids. It's about a boy whose parents divorce and the monsters seem to represent all of the feelings that he's dealing with. It was a little boring. I hate it when you're looking forward to something and it falls short for you. On a side note, Leslie liked it more than I did. Maybe she is the intended audience!

I am really looking forward to this movie. Maurice Sendak approved the movie so I hope that I like it but with such an adaptation I dont really know what to expect.
