Where the Wild Things Are at 10: The best movie about childhood not for children

(Image credit: Warner Bros)Max comes to the scary Land of the Wild Things at a moment of complete hopelessness. Once in the Land of the Wild Things, Max is the aggressor again. First by other Wild Things, and then by the volatile Carol, who goes on a wild rampage. Where the Wild Things Are is full of violent, scary, sad things – that much is true. When I first saw the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are, soundtracked by Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up”, I immediately burst into tears.

5 comics to read now that you’ve seen Captain Marvel

You’ve seen Captain Marvel, and you love Carol Danvers. And in her first adventures as a superhero, in 1977’s Ms. Marvel #1, she wasn’t Captain Marvel. And when you’re done, you may as well read 2014’s Captain Marvel series, because it was also written by Kelly Sue DeConnick. Before she was Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was Ms. Marvel — and when she got promoted, the Ms. Marvel identity was just sitting around, unused. How about a book with Captain Marvel in it that can stand as an introduction

10 questions we have about Captain Marvel

Though we can’t promise that we have all the answers, here are, at least, 10 questions we had after watching Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel doubles down on this kind of thing by loading the soundtrack with ’90s hits (No Doubt, anyone?)

Captain Marvel is all about the Kree-Skrull War — here’s how it started

The second was Air Force officer Carol Danvers, the future Ms. (and later Captain) Marvel. The recent miniseries The Life of Captain Marvel, by Margaret Stohl, Carlos Pacheco, and Marcio Menyz, revealed that Carol has been a Kree-Human hybrid since the day she was born. Her mother Marie is actually a Kree Captain named Mari-Ell, who landed on Earth decades ago and wen

Captain Marvel critics call out “terrific buddy-movie chemistry” but some missed potential too

Captain Marvel is hitting screens this week, and the standalone debut of the most powerful hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has critics everywhere furiously typing. After a slow build-up, once Captain Marvel starts to grasp her powers and untangle her past, the film soars, delivering in terms of epic action and emotional resonance. Sure, there’s a lot more going on in Captain Marvel, but it’s a pretty egregious failing considering that the creative bigwigs at Marvel had 10 years and 20 film

Since 2012, in a regrettably typical pattern for Marvel Comics of the past decade, Captain Marvel has had five #1 issues. When Marvel Studios announced that Captain Marvel would be the first female-led movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Carol Corps surged with support and enthusiasm. The expectations on Carol, on Brie Larson, and the Carol Corps is hard to imagine, be
