Ever since my Mom first read Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are when I was quite a young lad, I have loved the book. Indeed, it ranks as one of the favorites of my childhood. When I took some Facebook quiz to determine which character from children’s literature I most resembled, I came out as Max, the hero of this tale.
So, naturally, I’m excited to see the movie (now in theaters), perhaps as soon as this weekend. I have absolutely loved the trailer, perhaps that’s because of the absence of CGI to which we’ve become accustomed in so many movies which attempt to realize imaginary realms on the silver screen.
This trailer has a neat look, with these giant “puppets” prancing around in natural settings. Now, just because the movie has a good look on a trailer doesn’t mean it will be entertaining, but the preliminary reports I have heard have all been good.
I wonder if the trailer would look as good as it does to eyes less acclimated to computer generated images of imaginary realms.
