I just had the opporutunity to watch this movie last evening for the first time.  My daughter had seen it a few times and my husband had watched it at least once.  But, it was my first journey into the Wonder Emporium.      I wasn't sure what to expect from the movie and I was pleasantly surprised.  I enjoyed the whimsical nature of Mr. Margoriums Wonder Emporium.  The fanciful way that Dustin Hoffman played this character was fun to watch.  By the …

After watching the most recent Star Wars trilogy, I was convinced that Natalie Portman was a horrible actress. Her utterly wooden appearance in those 3 movies were an affront to acting. But after seeing Closer and this movie, I now blame George Lucas for her acting in the Star Wars movies. This is probably the biggest name movie since Star Wars in which Portman is the lead actress, and she pulls it of quite well. The premise of the movie is quite simple, a very old man owns a magical toy shop whose …

Splitting kindergarteners into groups, I was given the privilege of assigning names for each group. I was surprised to learn that about two-thirds of them had recently seen `The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Widescreen Edition),' so I knew names like Aslan, Mr. Tumnus, and the beavers would mean something special to them. `Weren't you scared when the wolves showed up?' I asked. `No,' they said in unison if not with some amusement. The thought hadn't occurred to them, …

Let me make this clear first. I didn't watch this film with any children, nor am I some sort of child in a mans body. I'm a lover of movies that seek to entertain, inspire and teach. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium does all three and the supporting cast to Dustin Hoffman really make this movie work.    Dustin Hoffman plays the eccentric toy shop owner who's over 240 years old and a believer in magic. One day he tells his dependable shop manager, Mahoney played by Natalie Portman …
