I saw it this afternoon. It was good, but it was a little bit of a let down. It was a lot different that I expected.

I saw it last night and thought it was absolutely phenomenal. I went to see it with a friend of mine and we’re both taking a psychology class, so we instantly began analyzing the characters and everything when the movie was over. It was the cutest thing, themovie ends and he turns to me and goes “was it just me, or was that extremely symbolic?” HES MY SOULMATE. Ahaha.
I thought it was absolutely great; very artsy, and somewhat dark, but I really enjoyed it/

it was too depressing. and extremely different from the original. i thought i was going to love it, but i ended up just being confused and sad. the art and creative side of it is incredible, but it really was a let down.

It’s beautiful and sad which is just like childhood. Bravo.

Loved the movie. I didn’t feel depressed by it. I felt like it connected me back a to my childhood just a little. I thought it was probably something that the mainstream is either not going to understand… or will write off as depressing and therefore, terrible.
I loved the deviation from the book, and felt more comfortable with it knowing that Maurice Sendak was part of the production staff. The movie was visually stunning, and I FELT a range of emotions while I watched. I literally laughed & cried. It was a magical experience and I love any movie that makes me slightly uncomfortable and makes me think!

i absolutely loved this film, because it recognized that kids feel big feelings too…it respected the fears and angers and joys of children and recognized them as legitimate. the roller coaster of emotions perfectly captured childhood. to me, it was one of those movies that you need to digest a little; the more time goes on and the more it sinks in, the more i love it.
