the_child’s Blockbuster haul this evening:

Porco Rosso
Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines
A Wrinkle in Time

I think that speaks for itself.

I really enjoyed "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines". Of course, I was also a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association for over 25 years. http://www.eaa.org/

Is Porco Rosso amazing or what?! :D

I've never seen a movie of A Wrinkle in Time. Was it any good?

If we're talking about the Disney branded movie from a couple years ago, I watched about fifteen minutes before turning it off.

So take that into account when I say it sucked. Like, on a scale of book-to-movie translation, where Earthsea is at one end and The Godfather is at the other, the Wrinkle in Time movie rates a little bit lower than Seeker: The Dark is Rising.

It sucked. Did I already mention that?

I'm pretty much with you on that one, though the_child seemed charmed by it.
