"The House With a Clock in it's Walls" has some fun moment sand good special effects, but I find it lack joy among the characters. Ten year-old Lewis has to live with his uncle in a large cranky house and discover that his uncle (played by Jack Black) dabble in black magic, until he wanted to perform magic too. Which leads to the discovery of book that brings the dead back to life,bring his rival Issac back to life. The film is full of special effects, therefore lacking in the joy that associates with the movie. The only character that i like in the movie is Black's neighbor played by Cate Blanchett who brings class to almost every movie she appears in. She brought class to the movie "Ocean's 8" making her the only good performer in that movie. i didn't get anything out of that kid. He's annoying. the streets scenes could've been mistaken for the street scenes in "The Shape of Water." i only wish that i like this movie more, but can't. My advice is save your money for "Goosebumps 2" which will come out in a few week. Or this advice; If the film version doesn't work, then you might read the book that is based on the movie.
