Director Eli Roth’s family-friendly fantasy film is an adaptation of John Bellairs’ 1973 juvenile mystery fiction novel of the same name. A young orphan (Owen Vaccaro) moves into a mysterious mansion that belongs to his eccentric uncle (Jack Black). He learns that his uncle is a warlock and his neighbor (Cate Blanchett) is a witch and uses his newfound magical abilities to defeat the forces of evil.~Augustine Chay
The movie, The House with the Clock in it's Walls was one I saw the previews and was interested enough to buy it to see the movie. It has a very colorful and vivid storyline that is very interesting to watch the movie unfold and makes you want to see it again. I also enjoy the added parts of the making of the movie to make the movie even better to have!
The movie is perfect movie for a family movie that is funny and will be quick favorite movie this is it. If your also a Jack Black fan you would love how funny he is in this movie. This movie has adventure, magic, and fun filled movie I wouldn't think twice about watching this movie or a movie to own and watch many times you won't make a mistake with this movie.
Definitely something different, story-wise, in today’s pandemic of same-old, same-old Marvel movies. Unlike Peter Parker, the protagonists learns magic by reading and he-s just a kid. Result is some gaping pot holes, especially during the climax, but it’s entertaining, especially since the movie’s look and cinematography are A grade (reason for four star). Entertaining and worth a look-see, especially for the eye candy.
