Yes I anticipated the release of Where the Wild Things Are. I hadn't had a chance to see it in theaters.. I loved it. I thought it was very creative!

Creative is a good word for the movie in my opinion, too, tiffany7.  I think the director envisioned the story anew, in a way.  It wasn't like he really "adapted" the picture book, as it were.  It's more like he took a brand new take on the story, as a film, and remade it.

 

I actually liked it a lot better than I thought I would when I saw it in the theater.  I'm curious what the special features will be in the DVD, and whether they'll show too much about how it was made.  Sometimes, even though the special features are made to be "behind the scenes," and you have the option to watch them or not, I find myself not wanting to break the "magic" of filmmaking too much.  I don't always want to see "the man behind the curtain," you know?

I'm going to watch it again tomorrow.

 

I have to say what a wonderful adaptation. Warm, beautiful, funny.. very close to awe inspiring.

It's really kind of "deep" in its own way, isn't it, Tigger?  It's hard to explain if you haven't seen it. 

 

Let us know about the special features on the DVD, won't you, when you get a chance?

Re: WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE - DVD/Blu-ray

Oh sorry, my brain is all over the place these days.

 

It's all back stage footage. One's just the boy playing director, one of the the director is wonderful prank, one's funny scare the kid, the longest is this is how much trouble this scene was to capture.

 

(shrug) nothing special really. I haven't found any easter eggs yet. I don't there are any. There might be more sf on the BlueRay version.
