Last spring, I saw the preview for the movie that enters your local theaters tomorrow. I cried. I am a wuss. How it ALREADY opens tomorrow makes me realize that the summer passed really fast and a lot of wonderful and weird things happened this summer. Wait for my bought, sold, and produced screenplay to see what I mean.
Anyhow. Tomorrow it comes out. I usually talk about kid’s movies when I see them on The Pilver. I don’t know if I will review this one. I am going to see it for sure. But, I have heard so many discouraging things about it. By that I mean I have heard it is maybe not for kids. It is not lighthearted. It does not have a happy ending. It is scary for little kids. So, I am expecting something that will make me walk away slightly disturbed. Those are my least favorite movies; the kind that make you sad. We’ll see though. By this time tomorrow, I will have watched it and realized whether or not it makes me happy. But I imagine that for sure, I will cry.
From what I have heard it’s pretty much exactly like the book. Have you read the book?
Some say it may be a little intense for kids. Considering what kids play on video games and what some of them watch on TV, it would have to be pretty bad to be ‘a little intense’ for kids.
I have read the book. But the book is only ten sentences, so while I think they use all the book’s lines, there had to be so much more added in between. And, I totally failed. I did not go today, tomorrow, hopefully. I am tired…zzzzzzzzzzzzz
I will probably (for sure) not see this in the theater, because I would have to go alone, and Amy don’t play that. But I get weepy when I watch the preview too. It doesnt look like a kids movie in the traditional sense. Kids will see it because their grownup kid parents want to see it and feel that good kind of sad. It’s the same kind of sad that comes from watching Jim Henson’s memorial service on youtube or the “in memory” montage on an awards show.
LOL! You mean you couldn’t make a 2 hour movie with only ten sentences?
I will see the movie, but not in the theater. I don’t go to movies alone and I really don’t like other people around me telling me what’s going to happen next, chomping their food in my ear or kicking the back of my seat. No, I’ll wait until I can watch at home on my comfy couch with my big fluffly blanket. 🙂
I hope someone will come out with Halloween costumes based on the characters in WTWTA before the 31st… it would be awesome to dress up as Carol
