Where the Wild Things Are (Flick’s Review)

Posted on | October 19, 2009 | 2 Comments


The movie (based the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak) is about a boy called Max who sails in a boat off to where the wild things live because he is very mad (adult themes). He gets to be king. I will leave the rest of what happens as a surprise. But if you really like the book and the pictures alot and do not want them to change in your head you may not want to see the movie.

My favorite character in the book was the wild thing in the striped shirt but in the movie this wild thing (called Carol) is kind of violent and angry sometimes so it’s not my favorite in the movie.

My favorite part in the movie is when all the wild things get their jobs from Max to build the great big fort.

Flick’s Rating: 4.5 out of 5

I think this movie is for kids who are not scared of movies like The Spiderwick Chronicles. If you are scared of movies like this you may want to skip it and wait for the DVD so you can fast forward past the scary parts.

    Dear Ethan,
    I read both yours and Dylan’s review of The Wild Things and am glad that you both liked it. It will be a while before we get to see it, probably on DVD. I always liked reading this book to you so I am sure that I will like the movie.
