Lots To Look Forward To

"Where the Wild Things Are," the beloved book, is now being adapted into a very independent-looking movie directed by Spike Jonze ("Being John Malkovich," "Adaptation"), which gives it a whole ton of promise. And with music by Karen O., too, I'm extra excited.

The simple fact that "9" earned a PG-13 rating gets me excited for this one, along with the fact that it's getting released by Focus Features. Directed by Shane Acker (whose animated short film of the same name got nominated for an Oscar in 2005), it's being produced by Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") and Tim Burton.

I kept getting trailers for "New Moon" when typing this one into YouTube. Ugh. Anyway, aside from the fact that Sam Rockwell is awesome, "Moon" looks like a new take on "2001: A Space Odyssey," where insanity and reality gets blurred when in the atmosphere of space.
