4.0 out of 5 stars Mimzy were the borogoves March 5 2008
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Gather around as we tell the tale of long ago when children (Chris O'Neil and Rhiannon Leigh Wryn) on a vacation find a mysterious object on the Whidby Island sea shore. When the container opened they find unfamiliar objects and some familiar. And so the adventure begins.

The selection of actors was excellent; there is a mixture of known and unknown good and great actors.

The film is not so loosely built expansion of a 1943 short story "Mimsy Were the Borogoves" by Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore. Of course they did not have to build the filler with several other sci-fi themes to distract from the mystery. And someone had an obsession with daily technology as we see with the cute bus scenes where everyone is texting. This time it is not a story of a neglected single parent child, or of kids being superior to flippant parents.

Some fluff added to expand the story time was the Homeland security stuff with Michael Clarke Duncan was lifted right out of "War Games" (1983.) This was a total distraction to the story.

Bruce Joel Rubin evidently did not really read the book or at least slowdown to realist that the toys in the box were not meant to serve a purpose but as with many things in life they inadvertently did serve an unplanned or foreseen purpose. So be actually destroyed the mimsy by changing the toys into a cheap plot purpose. Yet in his infinite wisdom on the plus side changing the rabbits name to Mimzy was a nice touch.

The extra goodies on the "Infinifilm Edition" DVD suffer from the same mistake made in the retelling of the story. They rely on technology to integrate the DVD extras into the film instead of having them as separate features. This can be annoying having to constantly press enter and select buttons. This may also be the cause of the fact that you can only move a chapter at a time forwarded or backward during the actual viewing of the movie.

This is a film not often showed on TV and I wanted to make sure I had it in my library so that I could watch it whenever I wanted. It is a magical story.

This movie really was something new. I found it cool and different but sort of weird at a few parts. But it wasn't bad weird. It was just odd. To tell you the truth this movie had a lot of heart for a Science Fiction movie. It also had some pretty cool parts that got you thinking.

Its about two children a boy [who was a little unlikable at a few points] and a girl [who was very cute and nice but really weird at sometimes. They are siblings. One day they come across an odd box full of weird rocks and a stuffed rabbit that the girl becomes attached to. After they find this stuff it begins to affect them. The boy becomes super smart and is able to talk to insects and spiders. And the girl can understand what the stuffed rabbit is saying, open up time portals and make things levitate. Then as the story progresses things begin to happen that has to do with the weird powers the kids have.

I'd say my favorite character in this movie was the kid's science teacher. He was really funny and enjoyable. Do I recommend this movie? Yes. If you like fantasy, science fiction and new age try this. It's really cool. Also it's a good family film
