That is totally understandable. 1 for 5 is not the best odds.

A Wrinkle In Time was a favorite book of mine growing up.  About twenty years later, I revisited it and thought, by and large, it still held up.

I'll usually see adaptations of material I like, even though my expectations are not necessarily high.  Based on the previews I watched of the movie version of A Wrinkle in Time, and the reviews, I felt watching it would simply enrage me.  I've never seen the movie, and I don't intend to.  The choice of the same director for New Gods pretty much insures I won't be buying a ticket to that, either.  I hope the Kirby family makes some money from it.  No other silver linings in sight.

Wrinkle in Time is something of a special case, though.  A lot of the changes seem to have been a chain reaction from Disney's directive to 'de-Jesus' it.  So I'm willing to cut the director some slack.
