I Could Just Cry Over This Horrible Adaptation
The "Wrinkle in Time" book series is my favorite series from childhood.
I have read and re-read them more times than I can count over the last
35+ years. The characters, with all their virtues and flaws, are near
and dear to my heart. This adaptation contained very little of the
wonderful, magical, spiritual story that I love so much. To say I was
disappointed with this film would be a great understatement.
If you have never read the book(s) I imagine you will enjoy the movie.
The acting is passable, the special effects are well done for a made
for TV movie, and the story is interesting. However, if you love the
books, avoid this movie at all costs.
I found this statement at the Wikipedia page of the novel: "In an
interview with Newsweek, L'Engle said of the film, 'I expected it to be
bad, and it is.'"
I, like another reviewer here, feel the need to read the book again to
dispel this movie from my mind..
reikster watch Cruel Intentions 3 movie
Meg Murry is having a difficult time. Her father, astrophysicist Dr. Jack Murry, has mysteriously disappeared. Her youngest brother, Charles Wallace, a genius, is teased and belittled and thought to be stupid because he does not talk to anyone but family. Meg does not get along with her peers, teachers, her 10-year-old twin brothers, or even with herself. Into this unhappy situation comes a stranger, the mysterious, weirdly dressed Mrs Whatsit, and her friends Mrs Who and Mrs Which. They take Meg, Charles Wallace and their new friend Calvin O'Keefe via tesseract to other planets, preparing the children for a mission to rescue Dr. Murry from the malevolent "IT" on the planet Camazotz. Along the way they ride on the back of a beautiful winged creature (the transformed Mrs Whatsit), learn about the shadow of tangible evil known as the Black Thing, and visit the Happy Medium. Once they reach Camazotz, however, it is up to Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace to face the dangers of CENTRAL Central Intelligence, aided only by each other and a pair of Mrs Who's glasses. They do find and rescue Dr. Murry, but Charles Wallace is seduced away from his family by IT's agent, the Man with Red Eyes, and thus comes under the control of IT. Dr. Murry manages to tesser himself, Meg and Calvin away from Camazotz, but Charles Wallace is left behind, trapped in the mind of IT. Angry with her father, Calvin and herself for leaving Charles Wallace behind, Meg is cared for by the sightless and motherly Aunt Beast on the planet Ixchel, and argues with Mrs Which about returning to rescue her brother. Returning alone to Camazotz, Meg must find a quality in herself—love—to free Charles Wallace, and possibly free the planet Camazotz as well..

diyora watch Supercross movie
the best movie ever! love it .
wrote it love it never hate ppl say it is good so try it.
Holes is a great movie for 10-12 year olds.
The Fog 2005 brought a few things new to the table after its first appearance, but the bottom line is there are dead people in the fog killing the town's people because their fore-fathers wouldn't let the dead people land their ship in a storm....'course the ship was a plague ship..that had lots of gold on it...and the town minister put them up to it. Revenge. An old saw. But there really was little point to them ravaging the whole town. It would have at least made sense if they just killed off the decendants or stopped when they got the gold back. It would have been a better movie and not slid into the slash & gash category. But both of them had the scare factor down pat..
The Adjustment Bureau gives you enuf of all things to satisfy. There is this guy who is going against all odds to try to get the girl he meets and falls for. Even when he finds out that the odds means going against supernatural forces, as in Fate....as in....maybe, like God. He gets some help along the way from a "guardian angel" who feels maybe they've been wrong with their understanding of "The Plan" as it applies to the hero. And thru it we get to ask the questions, what if....what if we challenged the odds more? Not disrespectfully thumbing our nose at God, but just trying harder and harder because in our hearts we truly believe He wants us to go the way we are going. It has some surprises. And some of it is predictable, but somehow....it doesn't matter because we remember times in ourown lives when we wished we had tried harder, and what if..... It satisfies..
ilike a wrinhkle in time movie ,it helps me.
OK enough for the younger set
This book was, and is still, one of my all-time favorite children's books.
wasn't expecting much when I saw the movie, and so was not too
(Spoiler) The book itself is fairly short and sparse; the scene where Meg
wins Charles back was, I thought, much more dramatic in the novel than in
the long, drawn-out movie scene (and what was with all those snakes in
scene?). However, it was entertaining enough, and a good enough tale of
winning over hate, individuality winning over conformity, and, as I like
Disney movies, a good showcase for kids exemplifying the traits of
courage, and family togetherness. So take the kids; they'll like it. But
have them read the book too!.
