the house with a clock in its walls

- Jack Black and Cate Blanchett are really good in this, plus they have really good chemistry together with some amusing banter.
- Has some good world building, which is helped by the Directing, screenplay, and set design.
- Magical stuff and the scarier moments aren’t going to blow your mind, but they are all fun stuff.
- While there is some predictable aspects to the plot, it still has surprises for us.
- The general premise is entertaining and got my attention, even if it’s still generally familiar.

- Some people might feel bored and uninterested with the movie because of it’s familiarity to other franchises.
- The lead boy character Lewis isn’t as interesting as I hoped he would be.
- There are some CGI work that just wasn’t that good.
