    Default Where the Wild Things Are

    I know it's not out yet ... but what do you all think?

    From the book and the previews, I would say that Max is an INFP.
    I have a tendency to want people to be INFPs, but he really seems like one

    I haven't read the book yet, so I'll post when I see the movie.

    Hopefully the movie will be loyal to the book.

    Isn't the book essentially a picture book?

    I did not like this movie. Max is so annoying and the whole thing is just depressing.
    I could see Max as an INFP. I did love love Judith and Ira though. They were so cute/funny. Don't know how to type them though.

    The Movie Review: ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ | The New Republic

    I haven't seen it but this review seems pretty legit.

    I took a three year old (who generally loves movies) to see it and she was ready to go after about an hour. I read the review posted and maybe the reason I didn't like this movie is because I personally couldn't identify with Max. I never would have talked to my mom the way he did and certainly would never have bit her. I hope that I never end up having a son like him.

    From the review and what else I have read it seems like an excellent movie about childhood rather than a movie for children. I can't wait to see it.

    Yeah, I saw it last night with my friend. I think it might appeal to a few older kids (9-12) but not the majority of them. I thought it was an interesting interpretation of the book - obviously the original is spartan that it was always going to be mostly interpretation!

    I didn't love it, but I liked it. I thought Max should've been more of a terror though. It was toned down way too much in the second half of the movie. (Maybe I was a terror as a kid?) Overall, I wish it had been less morose and talk-y. Especially his leaving. It was always jubilant I thought, and the movie made it so wet and sappy instead. But I liked the parts with his mom and family life.

    I have also never SEEN the book. I found that out shortly after making a fool of myself.

    Just saw the movie -- my best friend and I agree that Max is an INFP.
    He escapes into his own world and doesn't really identify with the "real world" as much as others around him.

    Also, the way he got angry was very INFP-like. He would be angry inside and not say anything, he let it slowly boil, and then he would explode.
