So much. The book's very dense, and part of this is genre-hopping for me. And at its core, that's what she delivered. "The one thing I will say is that, I had read the other books before, but I put them away".

But even setting aside the story's inherent lack of freshness, "Wrinkle" can't seem to find anything interesting to do with itself as it winds down its sole compelling thread of Meg trying to find her father. Who (Mindy Kaling, speaking only in quotes, from Shakespeare to Chris Tucker) are the children's guides.

Reid is simply outstanding in her ability to portray Meg as a fully fleshed and believable character, filled with both resilience and doubt. The costumes were wonderful. But that doesn't stop cute classmate Calvin (Levi Miller) from attempting to interact with Meg.

She said, "Don't waste energy on things you can't change in life, when you could be using that energy on something else positive in your life". Perhaps someone should have taken that as a sign that L'Engle's tale of good triumphing over evil might not be meant for a cinematic interpretation. It'll help them out, I promise it will help them out.

"I also looked at a lot of fashion, but not normal fashion but avant-garde".

The movie is supposed to be an epic adventure, but instead it feels like a taxi ride to somewhere with lovely scenery in between.

If there were would have been an actual quest for these kids, it would have led to real character development. Three "peculiar beings" - Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Judy Blume did her best, but I largely stopped reading about girls I wanted to be and started reading books about young women I thought I should want to be.

At this point, most assume he's dead or never coming back.

"I got a call from my assistant", Kaling told the publication, in an interview alongside Winfrey and fellow "A Wrinkle in Time" co-star Reese Witherspoon. Some of the highlights include Deric's first meeting with Oprah, where we learned that she adored his special popcorn recipe. "And I said women want to see themselves on screen and they don't want to see this very one-dimensional wife or girlfriend of a superhero". Completely uninteresting, and literally does nothing but possess Charles Wallace. Zach Galifiankis and Michael Pena round out the cast. It is tough on Meg and makes her a sort of pariah at school. Storm Reid did a fantastic job, without question! While the story is set across different dimensions, at the heart of it, it is an emotional story of a daughter looking for her missing father. During her short speech at the screening, DuVernay also made mention of a similar project, The Neverending Story, and I remembered being equally confused and charmed by that particular flick as a child and as an adult.

Unfortunately there many other problems that plague this movie. Bad sound. But the saddest part of all is the wasted potential for a new fantasy/adventure franchise.

The blockbusters just don't stop in 2018, and we haven't even hit the summer movie season yet! I can't pick a favorite, I was really excited to work with everyone. Personally, I wanted this movie to be unbelievable. You know there's a saying you really judge a person when they get some power.

Let's hope "A Wrinkle in Time" isn't too much of a blemish on DuVernay's career.
