"A soda for you and you and...a banana for you!" Just one of a handful of zany lines throughout this film from Count Olaf played by Jim Carrey. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a wondrous, dark and humorous tale. Based on the novels by Lemony Snicket, this film does an excellent job of keeping your interest without straying too far from the first 3 books. We all know that books a... read more

Before it was released, there was a pretty good buzz but it wasn’t really successful after all. Basically, following the success of 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'Harry Potter', they adapted as many fantasy books as possible and most of those pretty much crashed and burned at the box-office and this flick was one of them. Honestly, I thought it was actually fairly entertaining with a very good per... read more

Emily Browning and Liam Aiken are wonderful as Violet and Klaus. I particularly enjoyed ... read more

“I liked this movie a lot. Technically, it is beautiful- lovely costumes and sets. The script is also good. Sunny, played by the Hoffmann twins, was what made the film.

Emily Browning and Liam Aiken are wonderful as Violet and Klaus. I particularly enjoyed seeing Timothy Spall, Billy Conolly and Meryl Streep light up our screens. Jude Law provided the voice of Lemony Snicket perfectly. I have read the books, and have enjoyed them. However, the film does have a drawback. I was a little disappointed in Jim Carrey's performance. I imagined the character as sinister, and Carrey, being an entertaining actor, came across as rather silly. In conclusion, de” read more

"First viewing - Jan. 21st My daughter was talking to me about the latest season of the Netflix series based on the same books as this film, which reminded me that I still hadn't seen either adaptation. I was off work on the 21st for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and she was off school, so I kept her with me for the day and as fate would have it she came down with a cold. Thus we agreed to spend the day on the couch watching movies, and began with this one. Given that it ties three books into on"
