“House With A Clock In Its Wall” Movie (2018), In IMAX — Puerile, At Best!

It was a movie Teischan (12) wanted to see and she LOVED it. Already told me that she wants the DVD for Christmas. That she liked it was good.

I found it extremely boring and stupid with sans redeeming virtues! Now don’t get me wrong. 99.5% of the movies I see at a cinema is for the kids. So, I am a veteran of kids’ movies. In most cases I like kids’ movies. But, this was very puerile.

But, if you have a pre-teen you probably will have to sit through it. Just sit back and think of the Queen.

Went to Cinemagic, in Merrimack, NH, to see it in IMAX. That was a waste of money. IMAX helped it none. So, don’t bother with the IMAX.

Two things that were chilling. We went to a 3:30pm showing. Theater that could probably seat 275 — 300. Total of six — yes, 6 — including us. Talk about a private viewing. I was talking to one of the kids who work there after the movie. Said it had been a quiet week and that today had been the worst. They had sold 43 tickets in total, ALL DAY. Wow.

Canyon de Chelly First Ruin horseback Anura Guruge


It is called the ‘First Ruin‘ because it is the first major ruin you encounter when you enter the Canyon, at floor level. It takes about an hour to get there on horseback. This was us on horseback. We waited for the jeep to drive away before getting closer.
