I wasn't impressed...

and I really thought I would be.

Where The Wild Things Are was one of those movies that I didn't really enjoy. Ok, I didn't walk away hating it either, but it was more of a "Meh" kind of feeling.

Visually it was ok. Not great. It seemed to be more brown in hue than the book. I kind of get the feeling that it could have been filmed in black and white or sepia and it wouldn't have made any difference.

I laughed a couple of times. I felt no connection to any of the characters.

I usually love a good family movie or fantasy film, but this failed for me. But, hey, that's just me. I know others who totally were wowed by this film.

I walked out with pretty much the same feeling you had. I was really looking forward to seeing it, having read (and been frightened by) the book as a child. Like you said, "meh".
