Where the Wild Things Are, or Astro Boy?

Trying to decide what PPV movie to rent to watch with the kids tonight. My boys are 12 and 11 and my daughter is 5. Only options for kids are Where the Wild Things Are and Astro Boy. Any recommendations out of those 2?

  • I havent seen astro boy but we did watch where the wild things are last night, my kids are 12,9, and 5 and they loved it. Once you get past the first 15 minutes or so it gets really good for the kids. The start of the moive is a little harder for younger kids to grasp but my 5 y/o had read the book at school and was so excited to see it, she watched it a second time this morning she liked it so much.

  • I have yet to see Astro boy. I know Where The Wild Things Are made my boys cry (7.6 and 4). There are about 2-3 curse words in Where The Wild Things Are.

  • Both my children were sick this evening so we watched Where the Wild Things Are. Now I did fall asleep for about 15 minutes of it, but I thought it was going to be so much better!! I can't comment on Astro Boy as I have not seen it. Good luck!
