'Into the Woods' (2014) Movie Review

19 December 2014 12:42 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was both "excited and scared." These words, as sung by Little Red Riding Hood in the classic, Stephen Sondheim musical, echoed my sentiments as I walked into Disney's film adaptation of Into the Woods, a play I hold in very high regard and one of the seminal musicals that developed my love for the form. My cause for concern stemmed from director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine), whom, to this point, I don't believe has made a particularly good movie. Sitting down in the theater, my heart was pounding. Then, the fifteen-minute-long opening prologue started, and I began to settle. The show was in good hands, and the result is a successful entry into movie musical canon, even despite some issues. The film opens with a focus, primarily, on three separate fairy tales, two familiar to us all and one a new creation. First is Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) attending the king's festival, »

Review: ‘Into The Woods’ Starring Meryl Streep, Ana Kendrick, Emily Blunt & Johnny Depp

19 December 2014 12:40 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A grand, visually impressive adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s 1987 musical theater production, Disney's “Into The Woods” is at the outset enchanting, even entertaining. And if there were concerns that some of the darker, adult themes in the movie wouldn’t be addressed, well, this version is a lot more somber than you might imagine. But perhaps counter intuitively, this approach works to the detriment of the picture’s tenor, rhythm and initially vibrant energy: “Into The Woods” soon loses its spark in an enervating and overlong third act that winds up as a cul de sac to nowhere. Directed by Rob Marshall, ‘Woods’ certainly has its moments and a few enjoyable musical set-pieces, but that dour and drudging final section quickly saps the movie of its various charms. Mostly sticking to Sondheim’s basic plot faithfully —a mish mash of fairy tale tropes and Brothers Grimm stories— “Into The Woods” centers on a baker, »

Emily Blunt Gives the Unwieldy Into the Woods Its Heart

19 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Early in the film of the fairy-tale operetta Into the Woods, I was nearly jumping out of my seat with glee. The creators of the original show, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, had intended to transcend — even explode — the sugary, homogenized Walt Disney treatment. Now here it is, getting a full, lavish Disney studio production with big-deal movie stars (Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp) and somehow working as well if not better than it did almost 30 years ago on Broadway. My euphoria lasted a long, long time … but all good things must end. Which is also the point of the musical, though not quite in the way it happens here. Until its hairpin turn into the apocalyptic, the material is ingenious. Sondheim and Lapine take three Brothers Grimm stories — “Cinderella,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” and “Rapunzel” — and set them »

Disney has released two new clips for their upcoming fairytale musical Into the Woods. The first clip features the Witch (Meryl Streep) telling the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) what they need to do in order to get their curse reversed.

Into the Woods review: How does the Meryl Streep, James Corden, Johnny Depp musical fare?

17 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Rob Marshall; Screenwriters: James Lapine, Stephen Sondheim; Starring: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp; Running time: 125 mins; Certificate: PG

If ever someone was guilty of not seeing the wood for the trees, it's Rob Marshall with this fairytale mash-up based on the Broadway musical. The Chicago director gets bogged down in a multi-strand narrative that unfolds in frustrating, circular motion as he tries to weave together several Brothers Grimm fairytales. Even the songs by Stephen Sondheim seem to blur into one.

Thank goodness for a constellation of stars who manage to rise above, particularly Meryl Streep whose wicked witch livens up many a scene. James Corden and Emily Blunt spark off each other well, too, as the humble baker and his wife who are childless thanks to one of the witch's spells and venture into the woods in an effort to break it. »

Film Review: ‘Into the Woods’

17 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Be careful what you wish for” warn the ads for “Into the Woods” — an apt summary of the movie’s theme, and also the mindset of many a Stephen Sondheim fan ever since it was announced that the composer’s popular 1987 Broadway musical was being turned into a film. But such fears are swiftly allayed by director Rob Marshall, who, um, marshals Sondheim’s cavalcade of fairy-tale all-stars on to the screen in a faithful, never particularly inspired, but supremely respectable version — one that outclasses Marshall’s prior “Chicago” and “Nine,” to say nothing of this season’s two-ton musical monstrosity, “Annie.” Strong reviews and family appeal should earn Disney much more than a bunch of magic beans at the holiday box office, with a long shelf life to follow.

It certainly took Hollywood long enough  to see the forest for the trees where “Into the Woods” was concerned. A »

'Into the Woods' Clip: Meryl Streep Reverses the Curse

16 December 2014 2:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has released a new scene from Into the Woods that puts yesterday's clip into context. The previous video showed The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) trading young Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) some "magic beans" for his cow. Today's scene shows Meryl Streep's The Witch revealing to this couple that four things need to be obtained in order for her to create a potion that will "reverse the curse." The first item is the "cow as white as milk," followed by the "cape as red as blood," "the hair as yellow as corn" and "the slipper as pure as gold." The cow naturally belongs to Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk, with the cape surely a reference to Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), the hair belonging to Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and the glass slipper of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick).

'Into the Woods' Clip with Emily Blunt and James Corden

The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) try to trade some of their "magic beans" for young Jack's (Daniel Huttlestone) cow in a new clip from the Disney musical Into the Woods. Of course, these "magic beans" will eventually turn into a massive beanstalk, which young Jack is seen climbing up in a TV spot for director Rob Marshall's adaptation. Based on Stephen Sondheim's beloved Broadway production, Into the Woods brings several classic fairy tale characters to life under one big cinematic roof.

Most of us won't find out if the film is worth all the hoopla until it lands in theaters on Christmas. Hopefully, it will be a gift worth opening.

Once Upon A Time season 4 episode 12 review: Heroes And Villains

14 December 2014 11:36 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney's Maleficent, Ursula and Cruella de Vil are all joining Once Upon A Time for the next half-season. How will they fare?

This review contains spoilers.

4.11 Heroes And Villains

Broken hearts and questions of fate bring the first half of season 4 to a sombre close. The Frozen story that has dominated this season was neatly resolved last week, leaving nothing but farewells for Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff. That leaves some underlying issues—Rumple’s evil plot and the search for the storybook author—to come to the forefront in a midseason finale that keeps the emotional tension on full flame from start to finish.

The first heartbreak comes from the Regina and Robin Hood relationship. Regina restores Marian, Marian is grateful, Robin still wants to be with Regina, and things are going all too bizarrely well for the reformed Evil Queen. (Marian is okay with Robin being with Regina instead of her? »
