How We Determine Our Grades

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantasy story that employs many visual effects and unusual images, similar to the movie MirrorMask. A much more family friendly exploration of the imagination takes place in Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium when a store owner decides to retire and leave his magical toyshop to his young assistant. Actor Christopher Plummer plays another fatherly role as the parent of the singing von Trapp family in The Sound of Music. He also stars in the romantic mystery The Lake House and lends his voice to the crusty explorer Charles Muntz in the animated film Up.
