A Wrinkle in Time 2018

Surreal, psychedelic nonsense that somehow takes an interesting idea, game cast, and state of the art effects to make a tedious, dull bowel movement of a film. Now that's talent. If you thought Dark Tower was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet. 2/10

I'm keeping this one short because I have zero good things to say about this horrible movie.

A Wrinkle in Time is extremely unbalanced, strangely devoid of tension, and very scarreted about the tone. With powerful colors, bright parttersn and exuberant children, this new look from director Ava DuVernay's on this story squeezes through time and space, not knowing how to land any of it. Relying on room-wide music to provide the missing emotional connection and plastering huge plot holes this movie is one hot mess from the first to the third act. There's no saving grace in this movie, not even the acting of Hollywood top actors like Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon or even critically acclaimed newcomers Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

Every generation gets The Never-Ending Story they deserve, This is not that movie
2,4/10

went because a friend had just finished the book. he fell asleep before it finished .. The visuals were cool, but the story was lacking.

I liked it! Just shows you that if you keep thinking positive, you'll see more brightness in the world. Everything is already dark as it is... a bit of 'light' is something we all need.

Just saying.

Pretentious!!! Watching a child screaming "LOOK AT ME!", over and over is less pretentious than this film. There is no character development, at all, for any characters. There is so little story that massive amounts of the film time are wasted trying to impress us with the way over used special effects. Seriously, did we need a 10 minute transformation scene. Only one of the plot points is resolved and at the point in which it finally gets around to it, I just could not care anymore.

Boring.

Save yourself some agony, just watch the trailer and make up any story in your own head about what the movie is about and skip watching this garbage.

Are you serious? Besides making Oprah big as a god you say Nelson Mandela was a hero to mankind? Don't let your kids watch this!

Terrible. This is what happens when you try to follow the book too closely and not realize book to movie does not always work. The earliest Harry Potter films were awkward, the latter ones were excellent with great pacing and a logical flow. If you haven't read the book, please, read it for the superior experience.

Kinda okay-ish movie. It felt awkward sometimes, like, really awkward, especially the acting. I mean, sometimes the chatacters were not behaving like normal human beings.

Besides, if I hear someone saying "Charles Wallace" one more time, i'm gonna lose it.

Went in after reading the reviews not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. It's not great and has a good few fails but it's better than you may have been led to believe. It's a kid's story after all so you should view it as such and my two preteens seemed to enjoy it.

So this may be an unpopular opinion, but I really liked this movie. The effects and colours and innovative scenes kept me occupied without the storyline. But the storyline also kept me interested until the end, the film was unique and had elements I had never seen before. The actors were great too (Reese Witherspoon being my favourite), but the child actors held their own too.

The movie picked up after Reese Witherspoon, Oprah, and Mindy Kaling left. Sadly there were about 40 mins left of the movie.

The movie before that:
- Mindy Kaling looked awkward, esp. in those weird dresses which in turn made her running look more awkward! Oprah looked out of place and hideous, Reese was OK minus her white outfit.
- The camera work was horrible. I hate when they "shake" the camera. I didn't get the point of showing the girl's ear so many times at the beginning of the movie. I kept on expecting something to happen in regards to her ear or hearing but no such thing happened.

It is said when the best part of the movie was the animation at the end when they showed the title. And the music was good. Quite few famous singers in there.

The kids' acting was really good, esp. the little boy. And for some reason Michael Pena stood out.

Well, we're not in Kansas anymore! In fact, I'm not sure where we are in the movie, other than some kind of Mumbo Jumbo universe of pretension and colour. I'm not familiar with the book, so wasn't sure what to expect, but for the most part, this film disappointed me.

It's just awful. It's like it was just made to give the opportunity to someone famous to appear larger than life.

To be honest, I was really disappointed with the movie....still am.....I don't know if I should watch it again or not, to try and see if I missed anything.... but everything really confused me and seems so incomplete and all over the place, it was all going so fast and it was messy. As a children's movie (for like kids from 7-10) it could be a really good movie...but for anyone who will actually be looking for a proper story beyond the magic and wonderland like feeling the movie has, it won't be an enjoyable movie.

The animation is great, characters quite interesting, but yet.... really disappointed...

Please, somebody, tell me if this was maybe supposed to be like a sequel? And I'm supposed to watch like one more movie...I did see there was a 2003 version. But as I just quickly skipped through it, but it didn't seem connected in any way...It made me actually think that the 2018 version was a shot at a remake...

horrible movie, to deep to keep my children's attention. to bleak and depressing for adults.

I honestly wished this movie would be awesome, but besides a buttload of CGI and costume changes it was rather weak. I want to read the books as the universe seems promising but I didn't get anything from the movie plot wise. it was a bit of a mashup of vague information. really underwhelming.

I was so excited about the movie and I watched the movie without reading any review. What a waste of time. It can't be worst than that.

Not so up, not so down... The power of love, blah blah blah

With a movie adaptation of a book that was so widely praised and accepted, you can never really live up to the hype or nostalgia of the book. That being said, it was beautifully made. The colors, the designs, and the special effects were great. Don't go in expecting perfection, don't go in expecting more than a good kid-friendly Disney film and you can really enjoy it.

A fine enough film until the third act falls flat, like a three course meal where everything is fine until the desert comes but they don't have what you ordered and what they end up serving you is bland and hard to swallow.

Staying with the idea of the unbalanced meal, half of the characters disappear in the middle of the film (WTF) and this wouldn't be so bad except there the most interesting characters in the whole affair. The special effects are well done until they, too, disappear, making the third act feel drawn out, like waiting for the check when you have nothing left to say and can't find the waiter anywhere.

For those of you with good taste you're gong to have a lot on your plate with this, and many of you probably won't be able to finish it.

the part in which this world is well, when they go to the other is much effect without much meaning or history, a disappointment

This movie just doesn't quite work. I think kids would probably enjoy this more than adults. It's well made but I just didn't get invested into the story. The story is weird and doesn't make a ton of sense but that is fine, I was expecting that. The opening is very slow and I just wanted to get past it so I can see all the supernatural things start. This is visually stunning and by far the best part of the movie. The acting was meh. It's great to see such a diverse cast in a blockbuster. The child actors were fine but Charles Wallace's character was very annoying. I kinda hated the cinematography. They were way too many extreme close ups of all the characters. I felt like it got to the point were it was almost every other shot. The shaking cam stuff was used too much too.

Suffers from bad pacing and being too short. As well as a giant Oprah in a back yard, yet no one notices. "You get to save Chris Pine and you get to save Chris Pine and you get to save Chris Pine!' You also have Reese Witherspoon who can turn into a giant piece of CGI flying lettuce. The movies heart and charm is what made me kind of like it. I just will forget I seen the movie, either by tomorrow or within 2 hours of seeing it.
