    It's... inoffensive. Brown is better than in Stranger Things by quite a margin, and her and the other kid are the highlights. Sherlock and Mycroft are inconsequential and weird, inconsistent characterizations of their book counterparts, and Bonham Carter is barely in it. If it wasn't for the whole media story earlier it would have flown completely below radar.

    YA novels are my gateway to books, films, learning English, and any other culture stuff you can name, so a film adapted from one that captures the playful spirit of that genre pretty snugly (even right down to wordplay as plot point) is always going to be a bit of a soft spot for me. This runs way too long, and even with that time it doesn't explore the most intriguing of its various storylines well enough (I imagine the novel would dive more into both the mother's disappearance and the reform). But Millie Bobby Brown's effusive, infectious charisma is really the whole show here. She's so effortless in both comedy and drama that even the film's lulls ride along pleasantly, and she manages to make all of Enola's fourth-wall breaking, a tricky device when used this liberally, absolutely charming. 6.5/10
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    File this one under cute distraction. Great cast, lovely production values but story lacks punch, mystery failed to really grab me, plus if you've got Sherlock and Mycroft do a bit more with them or leave them out altogether. The Fourth wall stuff adds nothing my GF and I agreed.
