When I was a child, Where the Wild Things Are was hands down my favorite book. With the new movie coming, out I can't help but feel a bit saddened about tarnishing a childhood memory.

What's your thoughts? Destined to be a classic or another example of Hollywood raping our memories?

What exactly happens in the book anyway? I know I knew about the book growing up, but I can't seem to remember ever actually reading it.

It seems to be a labour of love and Spike Jonze is directing so im not worried at all.

The book has Max going to bed without supper, and traveling with his imagination to the Land of the Wild Things. The book actually has very little text and is really told through the fantastic illustrations, which is why I have so many concerns regarding the film.

I don't know about this one...I loved the book as a kid, but it's shorter than the How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I don't know how they can make a movie out of this.

i heard that movie was originally pg-13 because it was scary, but they decided kids would watch it, so they toned it down

I was confused, don't remember ever reading the book so I probably didn't, and they didn't tell you anything about the movie really.

I hae a feeling it's going to be the latter. I'm really getting tired of Hollywood butchering our childhoods to make a quick buck. :(
