Moderately Confused (10/16/09)

10-16-09 (Moderately Confused)

I’ve been waiting for months to see Where the Wild Things Are, which was finally released in theaters today. It’s not that I was a huge fan of the book growing up, but I was extremely impressed with the trailer and am a big fan of author Dave Eggers, who wrote the screenplay and whose account of Hurricane Katrina, Zeitoun, has been high on my list of books to read. In all honesty, Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book didn’t enthrall me, even though the drawings were extraordinary. I was more taken with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, although the cartoony adaptation of that lush, pencil-drawn masterpiece doesn’t appeal to me in the least.
