A Wrinkle In Time

  I first read Madeleine L'Engle's novel, A Wrinkle In Time back in August.  I really, really enjoyed it.  In fact, I loved it.  Blatantly 'Christian' fantasy annoys me sometimes, but this book didn't.  A few weeks ago when looking something up, no, I don't remember what it was, I discovered that a film version is in progress to be released in 2018.  I immediately looked it up feeling a bit suspicious and defensive because, "Really?  Who are they going to have?  Are they going to mess it up?"  Well I was agreeably surprised!

  So like I said, I was agreeably surprised!  I really, really like Chris Pine, I've seen him in Princess Diaries 2 and in clips from the new Star Trek movies.  By the way, he makes a smashing Captain Kirk.  And though I haven't seen Gugu Mbatha-Raw in anything yet, I hear she is an amazing actress.  And Reese is pretty good too.  So I am looking forward to it!  

  Oh! and one of the 'Three Wombats' from Ant-man is going to be in it too.  Which speaking of Marvel, Mum, Melody and I are planning to watch the New Year in with Captain America: The Civil War!!  Netflix now has it and it will be my first Marvel MCU film.  Well, I've seen clips from some of the other films, but this will be the first one I have seen all the way through!  I'm really looking forward to it!!
