Wild Things




Spike Jonze directed "Where the Wild Things Are". He has directed countless music videos I adore, but he also directed "Being John Malkovich". Sigh. That movie is so much fun. I love films about escape!

When you play this video, notice the first scene in the trailer shows Max being held by a Wild Thing, who says to him, “I didn’t want to wake you up, but I really want to show you something."

Anyone else out there feel the tug of The Neverending Story? Remember Falkor the big white Luck Dragon? My brother & I LOVED that film. The mechanical owl, battling Medusa, the tests of courage just like Indiana Jones.

The film releases Oct. 16th.

The mechanical owl fighting Medusa is from Clash of the Titans, no? And, at 30 years old I still cannot watch Atryu's horse die in the Swamp of Saddness. =(

Get Out! I had no clue this was going to be a movie!! This is fantastic. Of course Neverending Story was a staple in my childhood home. You are right, this will be up there with movies like Princess Bride and Flight of the Navigator...another cult classic anyone? ;)

Joshua! You are so right! I always blend those two films! :)
Katrina - Princess Bride. What a fantastic film. I love that film. I remember the male lead also starred in Robin Hood: Men In Tights. That was a high-larious one
