Pics from Spike Jonze’s ‘WHERE THE WILD ONES ARE’

I loved the book when I was a kid, although the monsters always creeped me out. I’m looking forward to how crazy this movie is going to look, because SPIKE JONZE’s never disappoints on visuals. The only dark spot is the talk going on about all the trouble this movie was having. Last year a test screening went REALLY bad, with most of the people being creeped out and thinking it was too scary for children. Warner Brothers even made Jonze recast the lead role of MAX, after the movie was pretty much done, to reshoot most of the movie. I’m a big advocate for letting a director do his thing, they had to know what they were getting when they hired Jonze. Plus I don’t understand where all this over protective parenting came from. I grew up in the 80’s and 90% of the kids movies then wouldn’t be able to be made now because they didn’t talk down to us as kids and they didn’t skimp on being scary. You know how scared SECRET OF THE NIMH made me when the owl showed up, or the freaking cat? But I watched that movie everyday as a kid. Don’t even get me started on the song at the beginning of AN AMERICAN TALE, freaking bone chilling. But I ate it up. Well I could talk about kids movies now a days or messing with a Directors vision.
