A Wrinkle in Time Movie Review.

A Wrinkle in Time Movie Review.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   

Hey Guys!! Happy (Late) Fathers Day! I hope you had a wonderful day. =) Sorry I missed last weeks posts. Recently I watched A Wrinkle in Time and wanted to share my thoughts on it!

*^*^*
PS: I disliked the book, but I’m a slicker for movies based on books that they be exactly like the book!
As 2018 approached, I was greatly anticipating the release of a new movie I was very much looking forward to, A Wrinkle in Time. I had seen the older version and thought the animation was pretty cringe-worthy but the storyline did stay true to the book.

I had hoped the new 2018 version of A Wrinkle in Time would have better animation and was quite disappointed. I think it was Mrs. Whatsit, turned into what looked like a piece of lettuce on which Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin rode on. In the book, Mrs. Whatsit turns into a horse-like thing, sort of like those things on the Narnia movies.

I was also very annoyed that they did not stick to the plot of the book, such as the other movie. The setting was quite wrong, the character's appearance was not as the book said as, and the storyline was WAY off.

*^*^*

The Characters: 
-Charles Wallace. NO. Just NO. He acted way too fake, he wasn't how anyone would picture him to be.
-Meg Murray.   Also NOOOOO. In the book, She wasn't very good looking and had braces. It showed otherwise in the movie.
-Calvin. LOL, don't remember his last name xD. He was okay, not exactly as he should be but okay. A bit too fake, too perfect and also too well dressed. He definitely was not like that in the book.

*^*^*
Overall:
 This was supposed to be emotional, touching, adventurous, and scary but I cannot say it was any of those. I actually found it corny and cringe-worthy most of the time.

Camazotz. It was supposed to be dark and gloomy in the story. NO. It was sunny and joyful. NOOOO. Overall, This movie was much too modern, with the setting, people and outward and inward appearance. Disney has done a very poor job with this movie, I must admit and I am sorry to say.

*^*^*

Overall Rating: 2/5 stars.

  4. I’ve read the book, but I didn’t care for it. I haven’t seen the movie though and I don’t plan to. ;) My brother really likes the book and the others in the series, but based off the trailer he didn’t think the movie looked good.
    Great review, Victoria! :)
