Hocus Pocus: Allen’s Latest a Re-hash of All-Too-Familiar Themes

Returning once more to the world of psychics and magicians to inform his breezy comedic styling, Woody Allen’s latest, Magic in the Moonlight, plays like the slight reconnoitering of a slew of other past titles from his filmography. While this is often a critique lobbed at Allen’s perennial offerings, his latest is a surprisingly uncharismatic and uninvolving recapitulation of the kinds of schemes he used in The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001), Scoop (2006), and a few others. If those are your favored Allen titles, then perhaps this one will be a pleasing trifle. However, whereas generally Allen applies a zany, broad streak to these scenarios, here we’re pared down to a quietly developing (and unlikely) romance between its two leads.

Disney's Live Action 'Beauty and the Beast' Lands Director Bill Condon

4 June 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following this weekend's box office success of Disney's Maleficent, the studio is moving forward with a live-action adaptation of the 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast, which has Bill Condon attached to direct.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (Ouija, Hercules) is writing the screenplay, although no specific story details were given at this time. The original Beauty and the Beast was one of the few animated movies to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, grossing over $375 million worldwide and spawning a hit Broadway play and other adaptations such as The CW series Beauty & the Beast and a French Beauty & the Beast adaptation starring Vincent Cassel and L&#233a Seydoux. The characters will also be featured in the upcoming Disney Channel TV movie Descendants.

While it isn't known if there will be any musical elements, Bill Condon wrote the screenplay for the hit musicals Chicago and wrote and directed Dreamgirls.

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 30-21

11 May 2014 9:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we continue on, I need to once again clarify that if this list was “Joshua Gaul’s 50 Favorite Movie Musicals,” it’d be a quite a different list. But, if my tastes determined what is definitive, I’d be asking you all to consider Aladdin as a brilliant piece of filmmaking and wax nostalgic about my love for Batteries Not Included and Flight of the Navigator (not for the musicals list, of course). Much to my dismay, my tastes are not universal. I’d like to think my research methods are.
