Spike Jonze

I love Spike Jonze.  Well, most of the time *cough* “Where The Wild Things Are.” just isn’t good *cough.  On the flipside of that, I can’t fucking stand Kanye West.  Hate is a strong word and I just love using it when I talk about this dingle berry.  Yeah, he’s a decent musician but, man oh man he is such a douche bag when it comes to being a human being.  Every time I turn on the television, it would seem,  he gives me a new reason to despise him.  Just when I thought I couldn’t hate him anymore he goes and does this…..AND TOTALLY REDEEMS HIMSELF(well sort of).  This little short film by Spike Jonze is interesting to say the least and Kayne is pretty fucking cool to be able to make fun of himself at this level.  Just watch this 2 part video and tell me if it makes sense to you.

Where the Wild Things Are Film Review

Spike Jonze’s personal spin on the beloved 1963 children’s classic was definitely a trip, to say the least. It was an epic journey through a child’s fantasy world where all the problems of the real world seep through and you don’t know the limits of where his imagination ends and his “Wild Things” begin.

Entertainment Earth has a set of beautifully rendered vinyl figures the upcoming release of Spike Jonze’s film. Where the Wild Things Are has released many figures in the past, the last set were identical to the book of the same name. These new ones will be available in November and are cast from the characters in the movie with a stunning accuracy. The last series became very hard to get, and even rarer to collect them all, ebay is now the last place to grab a full set or individual ones I believe…These new Vinyls make a movie buff like me drool over all the intricacies and detail…Can’t wait for Nov. 2009
