The director, Ava DuVarney, was supposed to direct "Black Panther" but backed out to direct "A Wrinkle in Time". And at its core, that's what she delivered.
It's unusual to say that A Wrinkle in Time is overcooked and undercooked at the same time, but that's largely the case: the maximum amount of settings, stunning visuals, colorful costumes, vivid scenery, and warmth, but a lack of natural dialogue, character development, and story pacing.
Spanish-born Paco Delgado was tasked with creating costumes for the cast, including three of Hollywood's biggest stars, for the fantasy film based on the popular novel by Madeleine L'Engle. Who, after the disappearance of her father 4 years prior, discovers he is still alive. Leaning on her single mom (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), precocious brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe) and new puppy-love beau Calvin (Levi Miller), Meg embarks on a journey to save her father from an alternate dimension, navigated by a trio of magical beings who can wrinkle time.
I'll start by saying this... Some of the sets were really inspired.
"I was freaking out inside", Reid recalls. It's mathematical: when things are more diverse, they run better.
The films you watch as a child generally have an outsized effect on your worldview as you grow. I wasn't sure if it was bad audio, or if that's just the way he spoke.
I don't have too much in common with preteen African-American girls in general, so I can't even begin to pretend that A Wrinkle in Time was for me.
Before anyone ever saw a single frame of A Wrinkle in Time, it had already cleared some space for itself as a major cultural moment. Which (Oprah Winfrey) - who promise to reunite them with their father. "There's a black and white photo of me holding my baby, hoping for a new [life]".
The movie is supposed to be an epic adventure, but instead it feels like a taxi ride to somewhere with attractive scenery in between. Instead, the kids were just thrown from one scene to another never learning anything. "I know I could span all of history and time".
Through it all, however, they never give up. Which, Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs.
Awarau's exclusive chat with Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay airs on March 12 on Māori Television as part of its Native Affairs series at 8pm. Michael Peña portraying a red-eyed charmer who hypnotizes Charles Wallace so that he becomes a mouthpiece for The It? He is being held captive by a universe-spanning evil called "the It" and they must rescue him before it's too late. Oprah and Disney together at last would be one way of characterizing it. Storm Reid did a fantastic job, without question! So that made it easy to work on the movie. The rest of us were in the dark. Not only that, this Meg hears that she is powerful, that she is special, that everything she thought was a fault is a strength.
Unfortunately there many other problems that plague this movie. I think sometimes on Twitter, people will say 'Is such and such in there!?' I can't tweet back to them because the answer would be no. Not really if I'm being honest. "I think I would like to travel cross-country in a covered wagon". Personally, I wanted this movie to be incredible. "That's unbelievable. She gave me a box of steak knives once".
