I was totally unsure what to expect when this began...I had never read the books. Heard of them, yes, but read them? Nope. Luckily I watched this Boyfriend so he could explain what was going on at certain spots. Being confused in certain spots had to do with the fact they put all the books into one movie and my background with the books is pretty much nonexistent. 

I want to say I loved this, like he did, but I didn't. I liked it, yes. It was cute and a cute movie for the kiddies. I can see why they labeled it PG, because some spots were a little scary and intense. It was a super intense and emotion-filled movie. It really flows with a child's emotions. All kids are bipolar, I swear. One minute happy and having fun, then they are angry and throwing things. The writers and actors really captured this and I applaud it. 

I adored the wild things; aka, the monsters. They were so fluffy and cute, but like kids they are bipolar. One moment they are happy-go-lucky, next they are wanting to eat you and break your stuff! Poor Max, but it was an eye-opener for him...he realized when he was a monster like that what his mom had to go through. Granted, these monsters really could eat you. Having Max go to that fantasy land is very symbolic and I loved it. You all know how I love my symbolic stuff and how metaphors make me smile. 

Someday I should re-watch that I have a better background with looking at some of the books and etc, I think I would appreciate this better. However, I did really enjoy the movie. Also...I want one of those monsters...maybe not Judith though...she was a bitch and I wanted to punch her. >.> Oh well.

But yes, I liked this movie. I would recommend this for those that love the books. Also, for those looking for a cute and meaning-filled movie for their kid. It is a little intense at points, but nothing bad happens. It was fun and it was sad at the same time. I wanted to cry at the end...not sure if for joy? Or for sadness? I mean it can be both I guess. I can't say much more without giving away major spoilers...I shall grant this 4 stars. 

Would I re-watch?:
Yes, I think I will one day

Favorite Character(s): Carol (though he was the most bi-polar of them all), Max (middle and end version), KW, and Alexander (poor guy)
Not-so Favorite Character(s): Max (at the beginning, he was a snot) & Judith (*grumbles* bitch *grumbles*)
