Into the Woods: Disney Does Broadway Beautifully (Review and Trailer)

Having never seen any stage version of this Stephen Sondheim musical it is much easier to take this big screen adaptation of Into the Woods at face value and while Disney does do Broadway beautifully, the film, for all its hype and fan excitement, does not overwhelm or overly impress. Certainly the movie looks gorgeous, the costumes, the set designs, the actors, with the exclusion of James Corden as the baker are all equally beautiful.

Neil Patrick Harris Improv Skills Misunderstood

Neil Patrick Harris has been acting for quite a while now, since 1988 according to IMDb, so obviously he must have mad improv skills; unfortunately for the How I Met Your Mother star these were misunderstood. If they weren’t misconstrued, perhaps they were ignored or even missed. After all, live theatre is much different from television and film, where even the tiniest nuances can be caught with relative ease by the viewer.

Rocky the Musical Another Win for Sylvester Stallone

Rocky the Musical Another Win for Sylvester Stallone

It appears to be a case of history repeating itself, Rocky the musical has proved to be another win for Sylvester Stallone. The star made cinematic history and back in 1976 with his self-penned film with himself in the starring role of the broken down boxer who defies odds to emerge victorious from his bout with boxer Apollo Creed. The soundtrack, with its almost iconic Eye of the Tiger theme song and the images of Rocky Balboa training by punching sides of beef and running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the song Gonna Fly Now almost guaranteed the film’s success. Now the film has made its transition not only to Broadway, but as a musical version of the movie that launched Sylvester Stallone’s career.
