OPRAH WINFREY DESTROYS HOLLYWOOD LIKE GODZILLA WITH "WASTE OF TIME"
The federalist review:
Madeleine L'Engle's classic young adult novel "A Wrinkle in Time" is the latest victim of diversity-deranged stunt casting in which no respect is paid to the race or sex of existing literary characters.
But that's only one reason why this frustrating fiasco is such an embarrassing failure. Director Ava DuVernay ("Selma"), who has no feel at all for the material, seems more interested in promoting colorblind multi-culturalism than producing an entertaining adaptation that is worthy of its much-beloved source....................
A yellow brick backyard pathway and an otherworldly twister (neither from the book) presumably are attempts to evoke "The Wizard of Oz," which is like slapping Ferrari decals on a 1971 Pinto. Also, forget about giving what should have been called "A Waste of Time" a pass because it might be good enough for kids. "A Wrinkle in Time" is so unconvincing, uninvolving and unlikeable that expecting even small children to enjoy it seems cruelly condescending.
