Producer Tom Hanks and director Spike Jonze bring Maurice Sendak's classic story to life in this enchanting adventure, a dynamic blend of computer animation and live-action puppetry.

James Gandolfini, Catherine Keener, Forest Whitaker and Catherine O'Hara lend their talents to the ambitious production.

Where the Wild Things Are Movie Review by Martin (3/4/2011)

I Really didn't like this movie at all. I thought it looked interesting (and I guess the monsters that have been designed for it kind off are) but the film has no real substance.

This has been scraped together from a very short and very well known book which I know little about. The Fact that the book is as short as it is...

It was a magical book, and kids like us related to...

Where the Wild Things Are Movie Review by Zara (3/18/2010)

I did not care for the book, so I'm slightly biased in that regard. Give me Shel Silverstein instead, any day.

This movie isn't helped by the fact that it's been made during modern times when the mentality of children has become such that they can act like complete and utter a**holes and mom and pops will still buy them...
