Where The Wild Things Are - Trailer makes me cringe

Dunno if everyone has seen this new trailer by now (link) but let me tell you that I'm not that excited about it.

When did all the good ideas evaporate? It seems like the disturbing trend of remakes and bastardizations is in full swing when one of my personal favorite childhood books "Where The Wild Things Are" gets its very own Big Screen debut. Why do we allow this happen when more often than not the resulting film isn't anywhere as good as the original and often only serves to tarnish that cherished memory?

I'll tell you why, because we are all lazy as shit! If more people took it upon themselves to come up with interesting stories to tell and then actually follow through and TELL THEM, we'd all be better off for it.

Just wait until hollywood decides enough time has past that other classics can be bastardized and remade, Gone With The Wind the remake anybody? I'll tell you what I really don't want to see is Dr. Seuss's books in their own 3D CGI amalgamation of imagination.

Can we just come up with some new ideas please and leave the past where it belongs....in the history books.
