Film Review: The House with a Clock in Its Walls’ Film Review by a Y4 pupil.

This term we have been to Reel cinema in Widnes for Into Film Festival week. We went to watch ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’. This film had Jack Black in it as a warlock. My favourite bit of the film was the chair. I liked the way the chair was portrayed as cute and cuddly even like a puppy. I didn’t like the way the dolls were scary as it made me jump, but it was funny.  I liked my popcorn and chocolate and my Tango that I had to drink.The character Lewis was smart, he knew words from the dictionary and he wore goggles although the other boys laughed at him and was mean to him. He got upset and wanted to fit in so he brought back the dead. This was a bad thing to do for Lewis as his uncle was upset with him.I liked the ending as it was funny when his uncle turned into a baby. I would not change any of the film and I was rate in 9/10.Thank you into film for this experience!’

First we watched a video and was given lanyards then we went through a giant set. We first went through a version of TESCO’s. There were props some were fake and some were real.On one set there had been a bike crash. The fire service asked us some questions about the bike crash. We had to work out what happened; was it the cyclist fault? The pedestrians fault? Or both?A lady asked us what we know about the toucan crossing- we told her that it was a toucan crossing because the pedestrian and the bike could cross hence the name tou can crossing.  She asked us if we knew our Green cross code.Next we went through Grandmas, Sam and Olivia’s room. We got hoops and placed them onto spotting the objects that were dangerous, this was after watching the video.  Sam’s bedroom was all burnt out because he has left his Xbox on and he had over filled the sockets. We were interested in whether he died luckily he never and got out.My favorite bit of the trip was the house because it was so realistic it looked like a coronation street set. It felt real and this helped me to learn. I enjoyed placing the hoops on the objects. I would love to go again and I rate it ten out of ten.
