    Local cinema showed this in anticipation of the live-action adaptation. Still as lovely as when I watched it as a kid, and I miss 90s Disney animation. Shame it had to be in 3D though.

    i've watched this about three times now and i keep finding something new each time to wax lyrical about (right now it's the way the score swells in the same way repeatedly throughout the film). i need the blu-ray asap.

    The Girl on the Train


    As big of a trainwreck as its protagonist. I had the same response to the film as I did with the novel: had potential on paper but everything was just awful, from the turgid screenplay to the horrendous direction. I don't know if the publishers/distributors purposefully marketed the story as the next Gone Girl or whether people just compared them because both had 'unlikeable' female protagonists that were also unreliable narrators, but it really does the former no favours. Emily Blunt deserved better.
