    I feel like you're talking about a completely different movie. I saw it last night and my two cents are: what a mess! Amazing sets though :)

    I feel like this is one of the better book adaptations there was more Eli could bring upon from a small children's book and put on the big screen by the way the book's pretty good.

    I feel sooo bad for all the 5 year old kids watching in my theatre. That saturn devil shit might as well have been from films like Sinister.

    I'm so glad to hear that the movie is good; the book was one of my favorites when I was growing up. John Bellairs was writing top notch horror stories for kids before Goosebumps & Are You Afraid of the Dark? even existed. I really hope that the success of this film means that we'll see more of his stories on the big screen; I've always wanted to watch the film version of The Curse of the Blue Figurine.

    Was it just me or did anyone else notice the movie had very subtle foreshadowing? In the beginning of the film when the kid gets off the bus with his uncle, in the background there’s a sign mentioning the eclipse that later became a huge part of the ending. Then somewhere in the middle when the boy was walking down the hall with the flashlight looking at the pictures on the walls, there were images of demons tricking people as well as a rat and a lady

    I just watched this and I can't believe how much I loved it. Best kid's movie in a long, long time. Some fun little easter eggs in it too (jack humming to a tenacious d tune, some other stuff I'm already forgetting)

    My buddy the poop jokes are ment for kids not for you. You got to remember this movie was not made only for adults but mostly for kids. Why is it the reviewers don't understand that? 😒

    You gave Venom a C-, and yet you give this a B? I'm the exact opposite of your opinion, I'd give this movie a C- and Venom a B rating. House begins interesting enough but I got bored Midway into the movie and the ending was a snore. I loved the action in Venom and while some parts were choppy, overall I think Venom was a worth going to see film. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I won't explain what caught my attention most in the storyline of Venom but it's truth in plain sight. The House is encouraging others to get into the occult, and is basically saying that it's okay to be a little weird if you want to try dark magic spell's go for it and just do it! Not exactly the message I'd want my children to receive.

    This film lacked focus. The story was poorly told. You just sit in the theater noting everything that happens in the film without wanting or rooting for any of the characters to go on this surreal journey. The comedy almost keeps you involved until the ending which is just weird, but not in an interesting way, just stupid and obscure. I left the film thinking their could have been an interesting film here, but it felt like the story process was rushed and didn’t connect any of the characters to the adventure. Because of this it failed to keep me entertained.

    I really really want to watch this. I wanted to watch this with my three year old (in the theater) because she loves spooky stuff and never seems to get tired of it. But after that children leaving screaming and crying comment maybe I'll wait till it comes out on DVD to have her watch it.

    lol, I actually had a "wait, what?" moment during the transformation scene. I was asking myself how he got away with it and kept his PG rating. There was only one family with kids in my theater and as soon as that scene happened they picked up and left.

    The movie contains black magic and occultic themes if you want to teach your kids it's ok to stray from god for power, take them to see this. Only a mature person can watch it and not be influenced.

    Warlocks are male witches. Not something to espouse to or admire....we have enough evil...lady Gaga in star is born ? She bathes in bathtubs full of blood and says things like "I swear to lucifer"....and you wonder why kids ran out of the theater? If you give star is born a positive review..your true colors will be shown..sadly.

    Let me just say this . The Movie sucked. The acting bad except for the lady. 10min in i felt like leaving the theater but i gave it another 40min thinking it might get better nope it somehow manage to get worse. Also smelled like piss in the theatre dont know what that says about the movie but just wanted to put that out there.

    Was once a fan of Jack Black but after that rude and ignorant statement he made about our President while being given a star on the walk of fame, made me realize he, too, is just another fat, over-paid, Hollywood idiot! When will these people in Hollywood realize that most of us could care less about your political beliefs?! Ironic that this dousche made such a stupid comment after starring in a movie that has a lot of references to pieces of shit! Black, just STFU and keep playing and pretending for a living!

    I was expecting him to tare this movie to pieces. I watched that movie and thought it was lazy written. It felt pieced together from scraps. Jack black wasnt playing a character. Hewas playing as jack black. And the kid was a horrible actor. The plot was lame and the ending climax was so stupid. It was such a disappointment and when rhe movie was over alot of people in the theater started saying "that movie was horrible."

    My god that was a terrible movie, how on earth Chris liked that. Predictable, not funny, borring, the characters were caricatures of them selves. The screenplay felt that was like written from AI.
    The movie included was it looked like elements from "real" black magic and the imagery was taken directly from real world something that is lazy and too dark for kids movie.
