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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

denNES danMAKU : I have to zee thiz movie

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!!!

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

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

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.

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.

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!

Abnry Acehilm : "All he did was fall once and eat sand!" Dead.

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

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.)

Tyrone Deise : SAVAGE!!!

Tom5tom Entertainment : "Giant hurricane wall", that's a tornata

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

iSmellBullshit : Wait they remade this movie? And they threw a bunch of African Americans into it for artificial diversity? Wow...trash movie, old one was way better. (Please note, I'm not slamming it for the presence of African Americans, I'm slamming it for the concept of artificial/forced diversity in films just for the sake of it).

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.

Sub Roy : Saw this yesterday. This isn't suicide squad-level bad (at least editing choices within scenes make some sense) but that's all the credit I'm giving it.

TallGlassofWater : Love? No. Love? *Yes*

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

CrystalAvenger : The scene from the beginning really set the tone throughout. You know, the one with the two teachers bickering in ear shot of Charles Wallace. The dialogue was pretty bad and their delivery o h b o y. And the faces the teacher actors make. I also want to say that the stupid show they show in all the trailers about her standing in the middle of a four square filed holding her necklace is super awkward. Like honestly. Her expression, the way she's holding her necklace. WE GET IT! YOU ARENT LIKE OTHER GIRLS!

くらせいの「この本が読みたい!」 : "They didn't accomplish anything in two hours!" Well, they got the dad back. Considering they couldn't get him back after 10 years, that's a major accomplishment :S

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

Openingband : This is like straight to DVD from the 2000s material.

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.

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.

Keznen : The 2003 movie definitely wasn't the best but it was still better than this garbage.

Maui Caui : The book was better.

Just a Random mimikyu : About 1\5 of the book wasn’t even in the movie. There was a whole planet, 3 other (slightly) important characters, and a whole species that they didn’t even include in the movie; not to mention the fact that they left out multiple other scenes that didn’t even need those things.

jmlkinc : Black Panther was an immense success, but as a white supremacist, I still need to announce that the fact this movie sucked explicitly because of the black people in it. Totally not because of the shitty direction, framing, and acting. It's the black people. BUT MUH DIVERSITY! /s

Aaron Landry : I remember the original movie from long ago, and it’s mostly similar, but with less filler and better. It’s not quite like the book, but a much better adaptation than this.

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.

Matthew C. : I read the novel (which was pretty well written) and watched the 2003 made-for-TV film (which was surprisingly not all that bad), but when I saw the trailers for this this looked like utter shit. And people were talking about "this is gonna be like Black Panther and good for diversity and all that" well I don't care as long as it's good! This looks like garbage! Thanks for telling me to stay away from it Adum.

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.

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

RAsplez 98 : Disney started out as a white supremacist, anti-feminist entertainment business. Now it's the COMPLETE opposite. I hate to say it but the early 2000s were their "Goldilocks zone". They made movies and shows for children to enjoy. Now they make movies and shows to put ideas and radical ideologies in kids heads. "Quick, pump out a film with a primarily female, racially inclusive cast. Don't worry about the animations or the dialogue, just make it progressive". That's what killed star wars for me, and it's ruining the entire entertainment industry, NOT just movies.

The Official Elon Musk YouTube Channel : It is such a shame. 237 people missed the like button.

Moving Parts Gaming : In the 6th grade, I threw up on this book. The school library did not want my copy back.

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.

The Queen D : A Studio Ghibli -esque adapter would make more sense.

FBI Chief : Heights don't real

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

Moving Parts Gaming : All Hail Sky Oprah! The mightiest Oprah!

MDev : YMS sounds like Tina from Bob's Burgers
