'A Wrinkle in Time' Movie Review

'A Wrinkle in Time' Movie Review

It has flashes of inspiration and raw emotion, and beyond the famous faces in the cast, Disney's "Wrinkle in Time" is graced with a wonderful, natural Meg courtesy of the young actress Storm Reid. The worlds Meg and company visit are plenty distinct from one another, but they look a lot like places we've seen in too many other films. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his objective". With Disney onboard with her decision, the director set out on a worldwide casting search.

A Wrinkle in Time packs a visual punch, and this is where the film excels.

"A Wrinkle in Time" is directed by Ava DuVernay. DuVernay has always been a vocal iconic about diversity and feminism in Hollywood, and she uses this film to further elaborate on some of those ideas. Nothing wrong with that but, as I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), it often gets buried under an avalanche of manic special effects created to keep the attention of its now-sophisticated target audience more so than when the book was released at the height of the Cold War in a world full of darkness. If it was a half hour longer during a key sequence of the movie, it might actually be ideal. We're doing it for ... we don't want to do it for the wrong reasons.

That, of course, has nothing to do with the actual quality of the film. There are moments in "A Wrinkle in Time" that synthesize everything needed to answer those questions. Alex was right on the brink of some incredible scientific discovery - something that could potentially unlock all the secrets of the universe, or something like that - before he disappeared. "Ashes and Embers" is about a Vietnam vet coming home to a country that doesn't honor his sacrifice and finds himself jobless and kind of rootless, and has to find his way back. On more than one occasion, each one helps the other find the strength they need to do something they never thought they could do. Meg Murry and her friends attend James Baldwin Middle School, for example, and Mrs.

United Airlines Might Not Replace Bonuses With a Lottery After All
It would have been available only to workers with a ideal attendance record and when the airline met certain performance targets. Kirby said he meant to axe a quarterly bonus scheme with an "exciting" lottery called core4 Score Rewards.

Through a combination of tacky and laughable special effects, Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin are first transported to the planet Uriel, where they meet guru Happy Medium (Zach Galifinakis providing some desperately needed comic relief) and then to the frightening sphere known as Camazotz where the evil IT rules everything and everyone. If you're all about the nice things and fame, you can grow up faster. Sadly, it will end up a wrinkle best smoothed away.

"A Wrinkle in Time" contains plenty of Christian references, from the Ms. W's quoting passages from the Biblical book of Isaiah to Meg's father saying "...

If only there was a good script to accompany those bold chances. Our faith is not restricted to the literal things we choose to look at or take in, moreso, it is the lens through which we see our world. None of it makes the slightest bit of sense. The edit isn't smooth and lulling; instead, it skitters and yanks, often to alert us to shifts in the film's reality, but it's jarring and uncomfortable. "She has the whole thing on her shoulders".

In adapting the popular fantasy novel, director Ava DuVernay fills the screen with vibrant colors, imaginative settings, and elaborate costumes and makeup.
