AlternateHistoryHub : Giant Oprah face will haunt my dreams and give me screams

A Kelp Shake : My teacher said that this movie was wonderful. He has taught 20 years in the “Film, Audio, Editing, and Broadcasting” area. He knows damn well camera work, lighting, directing, scripting, etc. It was at that moment that I doubted him for the first time.

LikeSTokio : Idk why but the "I can't breathe because I'm flat" part made me laugh so hard

Neo Machine : I saw the trailer, and it looked kinda cool. However, what turned me off from the movie was that, 1) I never read the book. 2) There seemed to be a lot of clashing stuff. At first, you got this awesome science shit about bending the fabric of the universe. But then you got this generic darkness and light fight and bland trailer-speak. But then, the weird guy with the red eyes does the distortion thing that looks potentially cool. But then, you go to the Alice in Wonderland planets with the bad CGI. (Wait, wasn't this about looking for someone's daddy with cool science?) I didn't know what to think of it and (luckily, it seems) didn't see the movie.

John Razimus : It was easily in the top 5 worst movies I've ever witnessed in my life, I feel like I threw money in the trash after walking out, and I liked the book too, proves money and power has nothing to do with hiring a good script writer, good actors and a good director, because the script, actors and director are the worst in the business, but you have to put the blame on the script and the writing more so than the actors as they showed up and did what they were told, to make a pile of garbage, worst movie of 2018 by far, probably worst movie ever made in the past 5 to 10 years. The Room is legitimately a masterpiece next to this, as there are no redeemable qualities of it, not even ironically is it funny, it's simply not worth wasting your time watching

slimkt : You could’ve told me this was a sequel to Sharkboy and Lavagirl and I’d be like, “Yeah, that makes sense.”

Nope.jpeg : Budget: 100+ million Money made ~ 75 million O O F

Herman Manly : This has that Sharkboy and Lavagirl, Spykids 3D kinda vibe to it. Just abunch of kids in a greenscreen room where not even the director knew what was gonna be greenscreened in there

EruditeFuzz : I had never seen a movie make my girlfriend cry tears of rage before this movie came out... The Wrinkle in Time books were some of her favorite books growing up and she was really excited about this movie. That was, until she saw the trailer. It made her so angry she cried, that they took and turned a "thought provoking, sci-fi adventure filled with heart" into a "generic Hollywood young adult action cash grab." Her words, not mine.

Wild Tiger : I love how the poster design of the movie is complete shit too. “Just have the characters in a circle, that’d be great.” Said the executive

Jack Stuchbery : I haven't heard one good review for this movie. Even the local reviewer on the radio, who is usually quite forgiving, gave the harshest review I'd ever heard him give.

Media Glitch : I just walked out of this movie and it was so nice to see your review and see someone finally mention how badly the framing of this film was and how half the movie is shot up every ones nose. and simple filmrules like not crossing the line are broken just for the hell of it. Great review SUBED!!!

Sci Fin : has anyone else seen the original its so much worse

Redskinsman10 : Pause at 3:36. I think DreamWorks should sue Disney for them stealing the tooth fairy from Rise of the guardians

Squirrel : When YMS says the school kid does nothing, HE LITERALLY DOES NOTHING. I watched the entire film, and he did not make a single goddamn difference. The only major scene he was in was his falling. The rest of the film, he is insanely pointless. Like extra/background character pointless. You could remove him from the film and I honestly think it would be better, and would not change the direction of the story. I thought he was shoved in as a love interest, but this guy doesn't even kiss the female protagonist, nothing at all. Hell, he even came into the story because "I felt like something was telling me to come here, is that weird?" and obviously, because of the amazing writing of the movie, that's never explained because the writers wanted an excuse to put him in because book consistency. Even in the climax, he never even appeared, just the little kid in the female protagonist. He was tesseracted home before, which just goes to show how pointless he was. Really an awful movie, but man I haven't seen such a pointless character like that in forever.

Baracq : Regarding the boy character, I heard the director chose him specifically to have a white male follow around and take orders from a black female. Also, through the grapevine, I've heard that removing the Christian themes from the book really weakened the story. Social justice wins again. (Whether or not that's the same reason why that character existed in the film at all I'm not sure, but this is getting BAD.)

Drummershy : i was at work and some 16-year-old girl said. oh, this movie was good because it had a feminine message. im like. just because it had a feminine message does not immediately mean its gonna be a good movie. I was like. have you read the book and she said no. I said. welp your opinion is useless!

Diogen Diogen : Also they missed 90% of the things in the book entirely, or dubbed it down so much to where it there is no point for it to be in the movie, like 35+ years later and we get this retarded version of a actually good book to movie destroying the plot.

Dylan [Smith] : You know when you just look at a movie poster and say "that's going to be shit" you are probably correct. I learned that the hard way. It seems whenever I do so the movie is shit. Never judge a book by its cover, but usually you can do so to a movie.

BattleUp Saber : Well, at least this ought to put an end to the "Disney pays critics" conspiracy theories.

Maui Caui : The book was better.

ItchinMyNipples : Before I saw this video, I regretfully saw the movie. I went with my friends, we're thirteen, keep that in mind, we wound up dying of laughter at scenes where it was supposed to be dramatic, we stopped watching halfway through and we looked at memes and threw popcorn and open sugar packets at each other the rest of the time.

Bull Session : omg thank you. I hadn't yet seen another wholely negative review of this movie besides my own. I was starting to think nobody else had noticed how badly the entire movie was framed and shot.

MyLittleCircus : Jeez I hated this movie! My family went to see it on my little brother's birthday because we loved the original book series. And not even 15 minutes in I started disliking it. My mom and I kept pointing out the faulty sciences, how terrible the acting was, and how they cut out whole segments from the original book. They changed most of it. The scene that they were in the cave was supposed to be completely different, the character in that cave was supposed to be neither female or male (who was also supposed to be rather cheerful). And they even cut out characters from the book as well. Meg and Charles was supposed to have two twin brothers and there was supposed to be this fluffy creature named Aunt Beast who lived in a snowy planet. Long story short, if you read the book you can see that they made something that could've been good into a fucking abomination.

Slashbash : I didn't know you were a literal Nazi, Adam.

Zhong Ping : This should have been an animated movie with professional voice actors....

Fluffy : The boys acting made me so uncomfortable that I just left

OldSchool : This was easily the worst movie i ever seen. The script is horrible and so plain theres not one thing instresting in all of the characters. The acting wasnt great, although it might be the script that made it look bad. I cant finish the movie its to horrible to watch

Alex Does Things : The only thing I ironically enjoyed was giant Opera Winfrey, which was so bad it was hilarious.

A random otaku : I absolutely HATED "A Wrinkle In Time" movie. I felt it had almost nothing in common with the book for example Mrs.Whatsit in the book she was a wise bubbly lovable character in the movie..... See was annoying, non encouraging, and overall I felt they made a new character. Same thing for EVERY character in the movie! They left out a lot of things from the book and they also add unnecessary scenes that don't impact the story

Jordan B : god I know the movie was terrible but as a lover of the book the part that made me the most angry about it was how unfaithful it was to said book. it's. so upsetting. the mrs are centuars with wings for arms. they're not giant and normal and a large plant flying thing. they made aunt beast a *two second flashback*. they made the happy medium a dude for the sake of having some romance. it was. so bad. also I never want to see oprah in another movie again thank you.

totally not jeff : "Heights don't real"

GippyHappy : As scathing as this was I still feel you didn't do the movie justice with just how terrible it is. Nothing that happens progresses the story forward. There is no plot. Nothing makes sense. There are no rules, no world building, no logic. I never read the book so I apply none of that to the movie, but even the concept was stupid. Why did daddy warp but couldn't get back? How did he survive four years like that? Why do the ladies keep changing outfits? What is the it? (A rip off from never ending story) Why does the it want Charles Wallace so bad? How did the teleport to the evil space rock after they said the could only go where there is light and that there was no light there? Why does everyone keep acting like main character girl is so terrible when she literally doesn't do anything but be vanilla toast the whole movie? Why did they name their child "Charles Wallace"? How does tessering work? Why does it work? Who are the space ladies and why do they exist? Why are their names so stupid? Why is one of them "what'sit" but the other are just "which" and "who"? Why not "whichsit" and "who'sit"?

TallGlassofWater : Love? No. Love? *Yes*

Shawn's Legacy : Say what you will about the original movie, it at least did a pretty good job at keeping things somewhat open to interpretation. And from what i recall, the acting and camerawork where pretty good, all things considered.

MDev : YMS sounds like Tina from Bob's Burgers

Apirateslifefors B : A Wrinkle in Time is my favorite book and I feel like they didn't take enough time to find the right cast. The first movie (from 2003) has some of the funniest special effects and acting I've ever seen (meaning that it's also bad), but it still gets a better grade then this new piece of shit movie. The only thing I kind of liked was the locations they filmed in. I forgot where they shot those scenes but it was beautiful! that's literally the only good thing I have to say about it.

J F : I for one, am GLAD it failed!!

Retro Game Players : 1/10 Hahaha Daddy Derek would be pleased!

Sad Plant : I only watched it because of Levi Miller (Calvin) I really love his blue eyes and liked him the movies Better Watch Out and Pan The makeup choices though...?

Partyblook :3 : Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......love? nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Bryan Conaway : Everyone please look at the cover of this movie, there's literally a fucking tree on the right side in a triangle where a characters sopose to be!

Tweagle ! : I liked Mrs.Who and Charles Wallace, but hated everyone else. Also I thought that it was obnoxious that they kept screaming Charles Wallace like they were saying his full name and not his first name.

Armored Wings : Is it bad that when I saw the trailer for the first time, I thought the woman with the blonde hair was a drag queen? They did her makeup so badly...

Teeg Monkey : 3:36 the flower lady thing looks like the tooth fairy from Rise of the Guardians​

Isaiah Williams : How come no one's questioned the fact that a black woman and white man produced an ASIAN boy?

CROFL : This is one of those movies everyone forgets about a week after they see it.

I Am Noodles : Of course the blackwashed character was the one looking for her dad smh

Archie Ratsworth : There was an older movie adaption that did a way better job, even making the brainwashing conversion of the smart brat little brother actually seem plausible by having the evil thing offering him a change to feel special, see amazing things and be accepted by everyone rather then just follow after his sister being ignored. And the 'I love you' scene to bring him back was his sister breaking down into tears and saying that because she's scared to lose her little bro on top of everything going wrong, and turns out love was something the evil couldn't offer so he snaps out of his trance.

MithraMusic : Pretty much spot on about everything, EXCEPT the women don't "randomly" lose power at a convenient time, they are weak near the It. But anyway yeah I agree.
