    ★★★★

    Charming.
    I didn't know mumblecore was a thing. Now I think I'm a fan.

    A Wrinkle in Time

    ★★★

    The book was better.
    Just like The Golden Compass - they took one of the greatest books in kids' fantasy, maybe in fantasy all together, gave it a great cast, but gave it too slow of a start to keep it interesting unless you've enjoyed the book.
    The effects are not very impressive. Very cartoonish.
    Kind of like pizza or horror movies, mediocre Wrinkle is better than no Wrinkle.

    On the plus side, it does have "Rickety Cricket" from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

    "Never stop fighting until the fight is done." I don't think that counts as wise.
    I've always enjoyed this slaughter of prohibition history. Fun performances. The more I think about it, the less I am sure what De Niro was going for there. Dumb tough guy? Man-child?
    And I'm not sure about that score. It's on the verge of something, but I'm not sure what...
