A WRINKLE IN TIME (2018)

The newest movie (so far) to come from Walt Disney Pictures, A Wrinkle in Time is about a young girl on a journey with her little brother and her friend to find her father who is lost and trapped across the galaxy. OK, so the first 2/3 of this movie was good. We were into it. We had never read the book or have seen the first version Disney made so we had no idea what to expect. But the movie fell flat when it was supposed to be at the climax. The It (the bad guy) was just dumb. The scene felt long and I was just ready for them to move on and yet at the same time, it was all too easy. I also felt like it has some good moral messages but they were hitting us in the face with it over and over again. We get the message! You don’t have to keep flat out saying it every two minutes. Doing that makes it feel like they believe the audience is dumb. We’re not. I am not sure how the book is but after watching this movie I want to read it to see. But kudos to Reese Witherspoon. She was great in the movie.
