3 out of 10 Better Then I Thought it Would Be.

I've heard people talking about this film for years. I really didn't think it would be as good as people were making it out to be, and since those people were saying it was amazing, looks like I was right! But it is good, and it's an easy watch, and I think what makes it easy to watch is the acting. The acting IS amazing but it's very subtle and natural. Mandy Patinkin as Inigo Montoya and Andre the Giant being the highlights amongst very few low lights. In a nutshell, it's a great movie

When a sick boy (Fred Savage) receives a visit from his doting grandfather (Peter Falk) who intends to read to him from his favorite book, he's not exactly pleased to be extracted from his world of video games. However, his mood quickly changes as he, along with the viewer, is transported to a place...
