There's ONE in all of us...

One of the common things that happens when Books are brought to life and to the big screen is the lack of similarity between the two. Movies tend to bring the book to life, but also tend to miss out on a lot of what you read in the book. A lot of movies tend to derive from the whole theme of the book therefor making it a lackluster movie with fans. Growing up, everyone and I do mean everyone had to read "Where the Wild Things Are". Childhood wouldn't be summed up if that book wasn't read. After almost 40 years since the book was Published in 1963, Director Spike Jonze is bringing the amazing story to life. Just from the preview alone, you get a sense of how true to the book the movie is.
