Rotten: Critics Absolutely Destroy
Oprah Winfrey´s ´A Wrinkle in Time´

Daily Wire, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2018 12:15:02 PM

Maybe she´s not popular enough to run for president after all. Oprah Winfrey´s new star vehicle, "A Wrinkle In Time," which opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, has been totally savaged by critics. The movie critic site Rotten Tomatoes gives it just a 46% rating, meaning the movie isn´t classified as "fresh," but rather deemed "rotten." "It´s hard to understand what went wrong - the cast couldn´t be more appealing, and the film is bursting with special effects. But as an emotionally satisfying experience, it´s a bust," wrote top critic Calvin Wilson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "While I´m generally

Comments:
That is very pleasing to see. I did watch the trailer for that pathetic movie and it is was extremely painful. It is just more leftist tripe. You know it´s bad when the left leaning Rotten Tomatoes and reviewers mocked and hated it. I´m sick of all the hype surrounding Oprah. She is just another female version of their messiah Obama whose soaring platitudes are meaningless and tiresome. It also made me uncomfortable because it made parents look bad. That´s the norm now with those on the left.

The review by The Federalist is by far the best.

They changed the book and they ruined the story and lost it´s very soul. I love this book. I knew as soon they announced years ago, that Oprah was cast, it would be terrible.
She is too big for acting. The movie is not about her character, yet all the covers and interviews are all about her!

What´s sad is that this may turn people off from reading the book, which is simply wonderful.

I guess I´m in the minority. As a kid, to me the book was mediocre at best (maybe I should give it a go as an adult). The good news is I have no intention of seeing the movie and that was before the reviews started coming in.

I loved the book as a child and am saddened to see it Disneyfied. Best quote from a review:

"Opera Winfrey appears to have gotten her makeup from a faceplant in a birthday cake."

I read a Wrinkle In Time when it first came out. I was in Elementary School and Wrinkle won a Newberry Award for best children´s novel that year.

Some of it was confusing, but the overall theme was the power of love within one´s immediate family. When the first movie version of the book came out in 2004, we got a dvd copy, but my daughters didn´t care for it very much.

And now the attempt to take an already difficult story-line and turn it into universal man-kind love story has me giggling. Well I hope Oprah and her supporters spent A LOT OF MONEY making this movie. Serves them right.

I read it as a child, and the only thing I remembered was the term "tesseract" and that it somehow involved time travel. I read the synopsis in Wikipedia, and none of it rang a bell except the tesseract. As an adult the plot seemed convoluted and contrived. Considering that I found the book so forgettable (unlike "The Secret Garden, "A Little Princess," "Charlotte´s Web," and other beloved classics), I´ll give the movie a pass.

Boring and meaningless from the movie´s perspective. Acting did not draw you into the plot, actors were not believable.

Its the very reason I do not go to movies anymore, and their liberal slant. I have better ways to spend my entertainment dollars.

The fat female Tony Robbins believes that she is talented at everything but it turns out that she is nothing but a big-mouthed windbag. The only person in the cast I have heard of is Witherspoon, which is pleasing to me because it shows that my break from movies has been long and enjoyable. When quality didn´t matter because movies were $1 a car we had quality movies. Now we have garbage served with popcorn and coke that costs the same as a good dinner. Oprah is going to run for POTUS because she just can´t resist the urge and firmly believes that everybody loves her. Go for it, sweetie.

I have wondered about how this movie would come out. The book had some subtle, but distinct, Christian themes in it. Themes that do not require Christian doctrine to be explicitly expressed, but which do not make sense from any other perspective. Since this movie most likely was missing that perspective, the reviews make sense to me.

I hadn´t read "Wrinkle in Time" as a child. I knew Madeleine L´Engle from her books about what it meant to be a Christian writer, as well as her non-fiction. I interviewed her when she had just signed a contract with Norman Lear to produce "Wrinkle," which never went forward. But I remember how proud she was of having final say about who was cast as the three Mrs. Ws, and the children. I asked who she saw as the Mrs. Ws, who are ancient beings, who love and guide the children. L´Engle said the perfect choice, for her, would be: Eva Le Galliene, Jessica Tandy, and Katharine Hepburn. Compare that to Orca, Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling! Talk about a travesty.

“Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is facing a no-confidence vote from the union representing his own deputies,” reports CBS Miami. Sheriff Israel has faced pressure to resign after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February. In a statement released Friday, the union said they’re holding the vote due to “many instances of suspected malfeasance, misfeasance, failure to maintain fiduciary responsibility by the Sheriff, failure to properly investigate possible criminal misconduct by members of his senior command staff.” More from CBS Miami: The vote will begin electronically Friday night and closes

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that new information about the illnesses in Alaska led them to expand a warning beyond chopped romaine to include any type of romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts of romaine.

TOKYO — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has declared he will suspend nuclear and missile tests starting Saturday, and that he will shut down the site where the previous six nuclear tests were conducted. “From April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the Korean Central News Agency said in a report Saturday morning. This came out of a meeting of the central committee of the ruling Worker’s Party of Korea held Friday to discuss policy issues related to “a new stage” in a “historic” period. “The North will shut down a nuclear test site in

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and five others signed a letter to Trump and eight federal entities asking for information to determine if the Kochs’ Seminar Network engaged in an infiltration effort to gain leverage for policies that would benefit the wealthy.

Two sheriff’s deputies have been killed in Florida Thursday— gunned down in broad daylight — during a suspected ambush, according to authorities. The cops were eating at a Chinese restaurant in the city of Trenton, about 35 miles west of Gainesville, when the shooter walked up and started blasting through a window, officials said in a statement. The gunman shot both deputies dead and then took his own life. Officials said no one else was injured.

President Donald Trump is clearly James Comey’s No. 1 target in his new book, but the fired FBI director also paints a highly unflattering picture of another of his previous bosses, Rudy Giuliani. In “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey repeatedly invokes Giuliani’s craving for publicity during his tenure as New York’s most famous federal prosecutor in the 1980s, before he became mayor, and paints his flaws almost as a biblical allegory about the dangers of excessive pride and ego. “There was something of an unwritten code about working in the office of Rudy Giuliani,” Comey observed. “In his case, the message was that
