was amazing. It's not in any way a kids movie, and I thoroughly recommend it.
Visually stunning, and a great story about childhood. Really makes me want to be a kid again.
It is a tearjerker, and a great date movie. Works well with ladyfriends.
Told you guys. Can't wait to see it tomorrow!

I love throwing up my arms and saying that while at work for no reason.
I felt like the plot didn't have much substance. Of course the original book isn't much more than what, 8 pages? But I felt right when the movie was about to end the story line had just barely taken off. I'd like to see it again but for now I'll rate it an Okay.
Richie Eisler sucks
from the other thread, since this one has a less obscure title...

Overall, the movie is kind of a bummer though. Much more negative moods than I expected. Not necessarily a bad thing though.

I love kids. They're short, highly emotional people who don't know anything. They rely on their creativity and imagination to get by in the world. A world, I might add, filled with giants. Amazing feat.
was sooo amazing and everything i hoped it would have been.
But be-mag film critics said it was going to suck.
So because they said it was going to suck, that means the movie will suck.
I can totally see why Sendak was against the kid running away from home now. Instead of being sent to his room and going on this adventure, then having the hot soup left for him which shows that mother/son love, we get this reunion after Max just storms off. It's hard to say that it's complete love in the movie's ending, it comes off as more of a relief for the mother because he's home and safe.
I'm so glad they portrayed Max as a complete fucking prick the whole way through. I wasn't expecting them to do that.
Really cool movie overall, but going to be embarrassing to say I enjoy because of the fans.
Also, anyone else wish they would have toned it back with the music?
I'd really love to see the whole film without any of the music in it.
i heard spike used all these wierd methods to draw different emotions from the little dude.
as it was his first acting job, spike would hire circus freaks to do stuff off camera to get him to show amazement in his face, or to disgust him etc etc
i really hope this film comes out quickly here
A TO THE MUTHA FUCKIN K
