Not "Where The Wild Things Are"?

Kali Fontecchio said...

And we're totally going to go see it again!

Kris said...

Don't leave us hanging, John. What did you see?

I hope it was WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE because that is a GREAT movie. Giant puppet suits and acknowledgement of what actual childhood is like ahoy!

Ant said...

Tease!

Ollie said...

John, have you ever heard of the English comiedians Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer? I grew up watching them, they're hilarious. Vic's a great cartoonist too. Here's a clip of them spoofing Masterchef.

I'm guessing "Moon"?

in the shadow of your 'hater' definitions, this particular posting of your own might be classified as 'ironic'. Everyone's a critic.

Please don't let it be Wild Things.

Was it Zombieland?

Please don't let it be Wild Things.

no irony.

I promise

Hi Ollie, I can vouch for Vic and Bob too. They were a formative influence on me.

I don't know if you'd like Vic's drawings John, but they are funny.

I am rather intrigued about this alleged good film.

Couples Retreat?

Black Dynamite!?!

Iron maiden said...

I hope Its not the movie 9 that movie looked awful to me

Bernardo said...

Where the wild things are! im sure

well, it isn't paranormal activity, if you don't like cartoons that are trying not to be cartoons, im assuming you don't like movies that are trying not to be movies.

i'm very eager to know what the movie is too. Hope you say so in the next post. Was it cloudy with a chance of meatballs? i loved that. Fuuniest CG i've seen in a long time.

Zach Bellissimo said...

Haha i bet it definatley wasn't Zombieland. Think I might know what movie it is 8]

Paul B said...

Inglorius Basterds?

Ryan Cole said...

Pfff, you're all way off. It's definitely Alvin and the Chipmunks 4: Chipmunkalypse.

I've noticed that a lot of people commenting on this blog like to ask what John thinks of some piece of pop culture, usually in the hope that it'll be one of the few exceptions to his view of modern animation. (I've been guilty of the same thing - personally I'm still wondering what he thinks of Yellow Submarine, Krazy Kat and Leo Baxendale...)

But asking about Vic and Bob? Yes, they're great (I was rewatching some of Bang Bang It's R&M only yesterday) - but seeing their names brought up here of all places was a request that came out of nowhere!

WIL BRANCA said...

Nevermind - I was thinking of something else. Duh!
It looks great, though!

Good luck ever seeing a good movie ever again. Those things are harder to find than getting us out of this bad economy.

Last time I ever saw a decent film I was upset to find out that it was made years ago when films were actually good.
