Did You Know?


Just as Jeronicus says he needs more time, he moves aside and the clock behind his head is shown with stopped hands and all of the minute and hour marks faded to near invisibility. Literally, out of time. See more »

What is wrong with all the haters? It's lovely
22 November 2020 | by EmoElSee all my reviews

Some people just have to spew hate but don't believe them. This is a WONDERFUL ADDITION to my list of 'watch every year' holiday movies with LOVELY ORIGINAL MUSIC and fun dancing. The cast's musical talent is off the charts and I love that it shows little girls as brilliant, and mathematical. I am so happy for my two young grand-daughters to have Journey to identify with.
