Bloggy Goodness: Laziness Abounds

We get a little lazy as the week winds down, so let’s check in and see what some other people are writing about during this shortened week…


Finally, earlier this week some footage from Dave Eggers and Spike Jonze’s adaptation of the beloved children’s book Where The Wild Things Are leaked onto the world wide interwebs. While it turned out to only be a screen test for the visual supervisor, it’s getting us very excited for the film’s 2009 release date. The film will also feature a soundtrack from YYY’s lead singer Karen O.

  1. unfortunately the Wild Things info is a bit out of date.

    It looks like we may never see Spike Jonze’s film version of beloved children’s classic “Where the Wild Things Are”. According to CHUD, executives for Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are considering reshooting the entire $75 million project.

    On top of this, execs are apparently not only unhappy with both the performance of child actor Max Records in the lead role of the human boy but don’t like the film’s entire tone (too scary/weird). A test screening late last year in Pasadena scored some wildly differing reviews, mainly because for something designed as a kids film its quite ‘subversive’ and more art house than expected and so young kids in the audience apparently began crying.

    The report indicates that if the film goes back to the drawing board they may dump Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers script altogether. Jonze has final cut from all reports so he doesn’t have to do reshoots if he doesn’t want to, but the studio could still take him off the project and put someone else in to take his place – despite previous attempts like that proving disastrous (“The Invasion,” “Exorcist: The Beginning)

  2. “Anything by John Lennon” — That immediately killed that list’s credibility. Listen to the entire Imagine album with Phil Spector’s classic wall of sound production, because the addition of strings works on timeless songs like “Jealous Guy” and “Oh My Love.” A gorgeous album from start to finish, and still well regarded as among the best post-Beatles albums (which is open to debate). A shame, actually, because half of the entries I actually agree with (Strokes, Def Leppard, Kiss).

  3. yeah I’d love to see him put it out as an underground video at least and let AOL/TimeWarner have their happy go lucky tale for theatrical release.

  4. and that other list is totally off base. People love to shit on the Wall because they think it makes them sound cool. Am I missing something? Who said The Wall was critically acclaimed in the first place. fucking blogs.
