A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

In 2003, Disney made a TV film based on the novel by Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time. I’ve never seen it before, but I can only imagine that it was super good that Disney decided to make a theatrical film of it now? Or maybe it was super bad that Disney decided to rectify their mistakes with a theatrical version?

Whatever the case, the theatrical film was announced and Ava DuVernay was hired to direct the film. She ended up breaking barriers by becoming the first African-American woman to direct a film that earned at least $100 million domestically. This was also the first live-action film with a nine-digit budget directed by a woman of color. Do these achievements prove the superiority of the film? Or were these achievements the only…achievements? Let’s find out as we review A Wrinkle in Time!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

This was a movie that came out last January, but very quietly. Not many people seemed to know about it and as a result, the film flopped at the box office. Many people say that had this film been marketed better, it could have fared better at the box office. Others say that the movie itself was just bad which was why it flopped. What do I say? Let’s find out! Here’s my review of The Finest Hours!

Today’s film is based on a musical that I had never heard of before much less heard of the songs before. But apparently, it’s a pretty big deal. Although it didn’t have the fame of musicals such as Les Misérables or The Phantom of the Opera, fans considered it of the same caliber.

I didn’t really know what to expect while watching this other than the fact that there were going to be about a bunch of fairy tale characters in one setting.

I had some familiarity with that already.

So was this film a good way to get me acquainted with the musical? Well, let’s take a look.
