Cubussoli Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Odelecol Pretty good movie overall. First half was nothing special but it got better as it went along.
Mathilde the Guild Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
Rexanne It’s sentimental, ridiculously long and only occasionally funny
vantikaci It was difficult to finish watching this. Busyness, does not equal imagination. I'm sorry I wasted my time on it. I think I confused this with The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus which I saw a trailer for. Thank goodness I took this out of the library, and didn't pay anything for it.The ostensibly "childlike wonder" the leads are trying to convey is trying way too hard, forced,contrived,unconvincing, and positively wooden in their execution.Even the emotional payout when "magic" returns fell leadingly flat.
Dex Bracewell This is a film that I've seen in a cinema, seen on Disney Cinemagic (!), ITV2 and then I've never heard from again for at least 5 years, yet I know it's the third worst film I've seen in cinemas (before Dragonball Evolution at No. 2 and The Hangover Part II at No. 1, even though there was a humiliating once upon a time when I laughed at transgender women's penises).The first half is perfect and playful, they could have gone onto a childish but fun adventure and I'd be pretty entertained. But then, Dustin Hoffman, who has had quite a serious career, not very well known for family films at all, admits that he will die! (SURPRISE INDEED!) And all of the toys go berserk and die themselves. Then the film goes incredibly dull, by making the toy shop useless and... GREY! This is not the description of a good family film, not even if it's Wes Anderson quirky, and creepy, as an adult man does end up in a boy's bedroom.
SanteeFats Ahh what can you say about Dustin Hoffman he is Dustin Hoffman is about it Natalie Portman does well in her role and Jason Bateman is really good as the accountant who becomes more human after coming to work in the shop. Eric Applebaum plays the reclusive boy who believes in the store and brings people around to be kid's again. His mom is on him about finding a friend, he makes the accountant his friend but when they are playing in his room momma doesn't like it. Of course in today's climate who can blame her. It is a sad moment when Dustin decides to pass on but there are a ton of people who come to the grave site. Natalie inherits the store but doubts her self so the store goes dark. With Bateman's help she discovers that she does have the magic to run the store. The ending is a very happy one as the store accepts her and comes back to life.
Mr Lambert Let's get something straight. This - Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium - is my realm. Some guys make movies, but not me. No! I am the one who watches. Upon recently viewing this movie upwards of 250 times in the past month, I can say this is a 100 percent perfect film that will not make you blue, but rather cheer you up even if you are cold and alone. Though I wish I could watch this with my family, I know that is unlikely even if I take full measures. Alright, let's talk about Mr. Edward Magorium. He was a good man and a good toy store owner. He didn't deserve what happened to him. He didn't deserve it at all. But I'd watch him again and tomorrow and the next day and the day after that. When you make it Edward versus Bellini, or Edward versus Molly, Edward loses! Simple as that. This is on Mr. Magorium, not Eric, not Molly. I mean really, what'd you expect me to do? Just simply roll over and not watch this on repeat? That I wouldn't take the time – extreme amounts of time – to watch this myself? Wrong! Think again. If you don't agree with me, then I'm sorry you feel that way - but know this: If you've already read this far, I won. Tread lightly, Mr Lambert
