      Cute and entertaining film for children. This film also has some great messages for kids. It helps them learn they can do anything in life that they put your mind and effort into, and to be your self not who everyone else tells you or wants you to be. It also helps them understand that somtimes we loose some one close to us but that it's ok and to remember all the good times we had with that person and to remember all the things we've learned from them as well.

      This is one of those movies where you put aside your cynicism and expectations to just enjoy the film. It is on par with the Gene Wilder version of Charley and the Chocolate factory in that it doesn't take itself too seriously and just has fun with the concept. Dustin Hoffman's take on Mr. Magorium is a wonderful performance of an actor who is secure in his skills and just goes with it. A great way of looking at the world and all its mysteries.

      I wasn't sure whether or not to bother seeing this film, but in the end I was glad I did. I originally rented this movie through a streaming service, but ended up liking it so much I bought this Blu-ray. The film is beautiful, funny, imaginative and emotional. It reminded me a little of Willy Wonka, but it's different enough to stand apart.

      The Magical Emporium

      Everyone compares Mr. Magorium to Willy Wonka and his candy factory. I guess the comparisons are not unfair, but the Wonder Emporium is a great light hearted fantasy for kids and very enjoyable for adults as well. Dustin Hoffman as Magorium gives a wonderful performance as the eccentric toymaker.
