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.
Shailene Woodley in ‘Divergent’ Move Over Katniss Everdeen
Having seen Shailene Woodley in Divergent one thing was clear, by the time the end credits rolled, Katniss Everdeen can move right over and make room for Tris. As protagonists go this young lady, who is pretty much a square peg that cannot fit into a round hole, is just what the doctor ordered. While the movie is, admittedly, aimed at the fans of Veronica Roth, aka teens, the older and younger demographic should respond well to the story being told here.
Dennis Farina the real life cop who became a successful actor has died age 69.
