Jonze & Sendak=Cinematic Bliss

There's two kinds of good news. The first kind of good news is when I accidently drop a bagel on the kitchen floor, and it miraculously lands without tainting my precious chive cream cheese.

This makes me happy.

Then there's the kind of good news where I read that the director of one my favorite movies (Spike Jonze/Being John Malkovich) will soon be directing one of my most beloved youngun books (Maurice Sendak/Where The Wild Things Are.)

This makes me ecstatic.

Not only that, but it seems Jonze has the cajones to not go the CGI route and is doing this puppy live action! I can't quite figure out how he's going to pull it off, but I have no doubt that he is up to the task. Between Tim Burton taking on Roald Dahl's Chocolate Factory and this Jonze news, it looks we've got a renaissance of children's books on our hands here! Now all we need is to get Michel Gondry to take on The Very Hungry Caterpillar and I can die a happy man.

Drew's Blog-O-Rama:

Obviously, I'm not trying to re-invent the movie blog wheel here. I'm just never lacking in opinions about movies, pop culture, news, and other assorted hoohah. And my mailman has put a restraining order on me, so here's my place to vent.
