Here’s a little defense I did on my other blog of Where the Wild Things Are, a very polarizing movie. The group I went with 2 thought it was brilliant, 2 hated it. I was so moved by it. To me it conquered a side of childhood that is rarely shown in the movies- the brooding thoughtful side. I was that kid and so I bonded with this movie and it really spoke to me. Definitely in the running for top 20 favorite movies. The voice cast is brilliant. The puppets are so refreshing from CGI and the subtle message about accepting people for their best efforts even when it breaks are hearts they can’t be more, is lovely. I just love it.
