‘Into the Woods’ Review

18 January 2015 3:07 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, James Corden, Daniel Huttlestone, Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch, Lilla Crawford, Simon Russell Beale, Johnny Depp, Billy Magnussen, Richard Glover, Frances de la Tour | Written by James LapineStephen Sondheim | Directed by Rob Marshall

Rob Marshall has had plenty of success in the world of musical motion picture. His 2002 film adaptation of Chicago won Academy Awards and boosted Marshall’s name into the Hollywood “it crowd” in the process. Following up Chicago with a lovely adaptation of the Arthur Golden novel, Memoirs of a Geisha, showed Marshall was an accomplished director who was capable of more than musicals. Those two films showed style, heart and confidence. Since then, Marshall has directed Nine, a less well-received musical in 2009, On Stranger Tides, the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, in 2011, a film that many thought was unnecessary and failed in comparison to its prior instalments, »

Having only just recently opened across cinemas in the UK, it hasn’t stopped Disney announcing that the hit musical Into the Woods is preliminarily set for a May 18th release on Blu-ray and DVD, with both a regular Blu-ray release as well as Zavvi exclusive steelbook version.

Into The Woods Review

9 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The trend for darker fairytale movies, with the likes of Snow White and The Huntsman and Maleficent paving the way, continues with Disney's Into The Woods, adapting Stephen Sondheim's award winning musical of the same name. What's different here though is that several fairy tales are mashed together, with the tale of a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) cursed with being unable to bear a child by a witch (Meryl Streep). Sent into the nearby woods on a quest to break the curse, the couple find their paths crossing with several familiar fairytale characters, including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and her Prince (Chris Pine), Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) of Jack and the Beanstalk fame, and Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) and The Wolf (Johnny Depp). With the movie beginning with each character exclaiming their deepest wish, Into The Woods goes far  beyond the usual fairytale and actually shows »

8 January 2015 2:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sondheim’s mashup of Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood loses a little magic on the path from stage to screen

A layer of theatregoing good taste covers this entertaining if stately movie musical, based on Stephen Sondheim’s stage show, which opened in the Us in 1987 and has been revived constantly since. It has been adapted for the screen by James Lapine, who wrote the book for the original Sondheim production, and robustly directed by Rob Marshall.

Inspired by Bruno Bettelheim’s classic analysis of fairytales, it is a mythic mashup of Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood, with a bit of David and Goliath somewhere somewhere in there, too. A childless baker and his wife are informed by a quivering, quavering witch that their barrenness is a result of her curse. They can cure it by journeying into »
