An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it has a pretty good reputation, I thought I might as well check it out. To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of Roald Dahl's work and I never really enjoyed the movies adapted from his books. I mean, some of them were pretty good but none of them really blew me away (except 'The Fantastic Mr Fox) and this feature was not an exc... read more

Review of The Witches

10 years, 8 months ago at Oct 21 1:43
Many children have grown up reading the work of Roald Dahl, and I was no exception. To this day, The Witches remains my favorite book by the prolific children's author, being more frightening, creepy, and wickedly twisted than any book I had read at the time. The movie manages to convey these traits of the book (sometimes better, sometimes worse), but in a manner that could potentially traumatiz... read more

Very good movie, Anjelica is fabulous!

“I loved Roald Dahl's books as a kid, and I still do. I have also throughly enjoyed the film adaptations especially Matilda, James and the Giant Peach and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. And while I admit I was frightened of it as a kid, I enjoy the Witches now. While Nicolas Roeg's direction could have done with more subtlety, the film is very well made, with incredible special effects particularly in the scene when the Grand High Witch turns the boy into a mouse. The script is offbeat and funny,the music is deliciously dark and the film moves quickly. And the acting is excellent, with Jasen Fisher likable as the boy and Mai Zetterling memorable as his granny. Anjelica Huston is superb though as the Grand High Witch, almost unrecognisable she was. Gene Wilder and Pam Ferris, look ou” read more

"Todella flipannut elokuva lastenelokuvaksi. Muistaakseni lapsena sain tästä painajaisia, ehkä jopa lieviä traumoja. Ikkunasta yöllä kurkistava noita-akka ja sen sellaista... Silloin paljon pelottavampi kuin joku Tiedän mitä teit viimekesänä... Joku osaa minulle ehkä valistaa, mitä hittoa Rowan Atkinson tekee Nicolas Roegin elokuvassa?"
