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

6 years, 5 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

my painful to read 2019 movie diary (12 movies items)

" What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Movie. It was probably my fault as I should've remembered that this film is supposed to be based on the Roald Dahl novel and it's a kid's movie etc but holy shit this movie is infuriating. The opening scene is amazing: an old woman tells her grandson myths about Norwegian witches who victimize children. One child is snatched and becomes stuck in a painting in her parents' home forever. The sets in Norway are captivating and magical. And then enters the annoying s"

"First viewing - Oct. 21st Marathon with the kiddo Growing up I'd missed The Witches entirely, but word of mouth in recent years has encouraged me to give it a look. Since I knew it was family-friendly I made sure to include it when my daughter and I had our brief movie marathon, and it wound up being her favorite film we watched. Anjelica Huston is wonderful as always, and I thought the story was decent up until the final scene which didn't feel right to me. The make-up is excellent, though I t"

The Witches

“Hollywood has never had the easiest time transitioning Roald Dahl’s words onto the screen, but a sublime fusion of creative talents makes The Witches one of the most successful tryouts. This isn’t so much a scary children’s film as it is a horror film built for children, this sounds like splitting hairs but it makes all the difference. We are lulled into a sense of placidity and fairy tale hardships in the beginning, no different than any of Disney’s canonized films or beloved stories like A Little Princess, before things just start getting increasingly weird, wild, and dark.   Dahl’s fiction is a blessed mixture of the seemingly mundane surrounded by the grotesque and horrific. Children are frequently blighted by monstrous evil and the adults in their life are often of little” read more
