    A Wrinkle in Time

    A boring, ugly and surprisingly cheap looking Never Ending Story rip-off, with some seriously heavy John Carter vibes. No wonder it flopped.

    Saying this is the best film McG has ever made isn't saying much and like most of his films it's aimed squarely at the 13yr old boy market.
    It's basically Home Alone with a wannabe Patrick Bateman and some satanists... Just not quite that good. But it's also not terrible, sure it drags a little near the end and feels a little longer than it is, and the random social media style stickers it throws up over the screen like a budget Scott Pilgrim made me cringe. But it paired well with last nights leftover curry and stale beer.
