let's go to the movies


The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind

and another

his mother called him WILD THING and Max said

I'LL EAT YOU UP

and he was sent to bed without eating anything.

That night, in Max's room, a forest grew.

Is Johnny Dep in it?

I don't think so. It's Spike Jones, not Tim Burton.

VERY awesome!
But, won't it be about 8 minutes long? I'm guessing 90% filler of puppet "jackass" scenes. I love it when puppets kick each other in the crotch.

I watched this trailer yesterday on the Apple site. Very cool, but I also wonder how they are going to flesh out an entire movie from the source material.

I have faith in Spike though.

downtown guy said...

Yeah, the fact that Spike Jones is directing makes me very hopeful. Also, the fact that the monsters are suits, not CGI crap.

This is funtabulouso!!! Harley has never been to a real movie before. I'd love it if a bunch of us could do a matinee on a weekend or something. He loved the book.

Tom Hanks can mostly kiss my ass, I mean he's a grown man and his whiney voice just doesn't charm no more if you know what I mean... BUT he produced this movie.
I am going to this movie. I am getting the biggest coke and popcorn and junior mints. I may cry. You can share my food.

p.s.
I am pissed that it doesn't come out until October. What is this? We have to wait for stupid babies, movies, Halloween... Oh man, how many Wild Things will there be this year for Halloween? Um, a million? I can make a wolf suit.

Ms. Moon said...

I'll be the mother.Yes. I know. Typecasting.
And yes. It's like the universe is in some cosmic plan to make us all have to practice PATIENCE.
What's up with that?

Petit fleur said...

Waiting sucks. But I am psyched about getting a gang together to see the movie. Great idea Hank.

Hope to see you all before then though!
