Extended Thoughts on ‘Enchanted’

1 December 2012 2:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Enchanted

Directed by Kevin Lima

Written by Bill Kelly

Starring Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden, Timothy Spall

I have rarely seen a movie as undeserving of its lead performance as I have with Enchanted and Amy Adams. And I want to reiterate, in this column, what I said on the podcast: I think Adams’ work in this film is one of the best lead performances in any American film in a long time. It is a monumentally difficult, brave, and daring role to play. Whatever opinion people have of Enchanted is first informed by their opinion of Adams’ performance as Giselle. If she’s not so sparkling and lively and entertaining in this film, we would not be thinking of it fondly in any form. It’s not just that this is a character-driven film, it’s that it’s so singularly performance-driven, to the overall film’s detriment. »

Tony Winner 'Memphis' Heading to Big Screen; Whom Should They Cast?

15 October 2012 6:54 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Hollywood’s relationship with Broadway has been long and fruitful, spawning well-received adaptations of such classic stage shows as The Music Man, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, Chicago, Guys and Dolls … really, the list goes on and on.    As we gear up for Les Miserables, which Tom Hooper plans to bring to theaters on Christmas day, Deadline reports that the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis will be the next show to transition from the Great White Way to the silver screen. Belle Pictures and the Mark Gordon Company plan to produce the movie musical, which has been set up at Warner Bros.’ Alcon Entertainment.    Memphis co-creator Joe Dipietro will write the film’s screenplay, according to reports, penning the story of a...

Homeland’s Mandy Patinkin on His Bad Old TV Show and His Great New One

20 September 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a brightly lit room in Mandy Patinkin’s ­Upper West Side apartment, the actor and his 26-year-old son, Gideon, are singing to each other. Gideon sometimes joins Mandy onstage in concert, and the two are brushing up on a medley for my benefit, fine-tuning songs from Guys and Dolls, The Music Man, and Into the Woods. When Mandy starts to stamp his feet, Gideon reminds him that it bothers the downstairs neighbors. When Mandy flubs a lyric, he shouts, “Fuck me!” before soldiering on. On a shelf overlooking the father and son is a simple piece of embroidery, stitched blue letters over red buttons, that reads Until Further Notice: Celebrate Everything.That could be Patinkin’s motto. In his three-decade career, the 59-year-old has accumulated a Tony for his star-making performance in 1980’s Evita, an Emmy for his role on mid-nineties CBS doctor drama Chicago Hope, and an indelible »

A Chat with Trey Parker and Matt Stone as 'The Book of Mormon' Goes National

20 September 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Phyre Hawkins, Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner in The Book of Mormon When Brad sent me an e-mail a couple weeks back asking if I'd be interested in attending the Trey Parker and Matt Stone musical The Book of Mormon as it kicks off its North American Tour in Los Angeles, he didn't have to twist my arm. To top it off the two men that created the play were going to be doing a QandA after the show? Sold! We both knew covering a play as it rolls out on a national tour is not the normal Rope of Silicon mandate. We also knew Parker and Stone are not normal playwrights. They are the comic minds behind the most consistently relevant and funny TV show of the last fifteen years, "South Park", and two of the funniest and most inventive films I have seen as well -- Team America: World Police »

Interviews: Here’s the Story of ‘The Brady Bunch’ in the Present Day

3 September 2012 5:04 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In 1969, amid the turbulent decade of the 1960s, a landmark TV sitcom made its debut with the simple phrase, “Here’s the story…” “The Brady Bunch” has endured in entertainment culture ever since, and four of the actors who comprised the Bunch – Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) have evolved to adulthood with varied interests and pursuits.

They appeared last March at ‘The Hollywood Show,’ a twice-a-year event in which fans can mingle, take photographs and get autographs from the celebrities – like The actors who portrayed the Bradys – who appear there. There is also a great opportunity to purchase memorabilia from a host of showbiz vendors, all in one room. The fall session of The Hollywood Show will take place at the Hilton Rosemont Hotel on River Road in Rosemont, Ill, on September 7th, 8th and 9th, 2012. For complete details click here. »

Bernie – The Review

18 May 2012 5:09 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A True Crime story – In 1997, in the town of Carthage, Texas, the body of wealthy, epically bitchy widow Marjorie Nugent, 81, was found in her freezer, shot four times in the back. Beloved local funeral director Bernie Tiede soon confessed to the murder so the District Attorney took him to trial and won a conviction. Director/writer Richard Linklater’s comic take on this story is the new film Bernie.

Bernie (played by Jack Black) is well-regarded by his boss not only for his skill in dressing up the deceased, but in subtly pushing more expensive coffins on their families. He’s a pudgy, effeminate man who sings with a church choir and is the director and leading man in a local production of The Music Man. Is Bernie gay? One Carthagian notes: “He just loves hugging and kissing the old ladies, but a woman his own age he wouldn’t »

Broadway Season Ends With a Muddle of Shows

29 April 2012 1:10 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

HollywoodNews.com: It’s over. The big race from March 1st — when the spring season begins– to April 26th, cut off date for eligibility for the Tony Awards. It ended tonight with a thud. I saw “Leap of Faith”–it’s as bad as the 1992 movie, maybe worse. I skipped “Don’t Dress for Dinner” and “Ghost: The Musical.” The other reviews were bad enough. I really liked “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and thought the New York Times was unusually harsh and wrong. It’s delightful, and Matthew Broderick is very good in it. As for “Leap of Faith”: they brought in the talented Warren Leight (“Sideman”) to fix a broken script. He did everything he could. He used the paddles, yelled “Clear!” and tried to revive a dead body.

But the show is inert. The songs are mostly torture. The concept is still a very »
