Where The WIld Things Are

ok so my most reoccurring dream in my childhood went a little something like this: me, running down a long, straight, beaten path with huge trees caving in on the left and the right. behind me, one of the monsters from where the wild things are is hot on my trail and wants to capture me and rip me apart and eat me. i run and i run and i run, and suddenly the path hits the edge of a cliff and i fall off and die.

I can't remember the last time i read Where the Wild Things Are, everyone favorite childhood book. That dream prevents me from picking it up again.

But guess what... Spike Jones has turned it into a movie and the trailer was just released. I think i need to see it to face my fears. The film looks pretty dark, which I think will be beautiful. And the monsters have something about them that makes me really love them, rather than want to run from them. I have a feeling this one is going to shake my heart up a little bit. And chances are, I might cry a lot. I don't like seeing kids get hurt in movie, or animals, or monsters that somehow remind me of a combo of kids and animals.

I think I'll be getting pretty emotional during this one too.

That dream sounds so incredibly frightening!

It makes me so happy to know that Spike Jonze is directing this though. Inspiring that one is.
