It’s been awhile since we reviewed a animated film, and this one seems right at home in Musings stash. It is a tale told to us from decades ago, but still holds true even today. Let’s take a look at what happened to the colourful town of Thneedville.
While this town seems happy and bright, it holds a dark secret. This story is how one boy, Ted (Zac Efron) learns that the girls of his dreams, the artistic Audrey (Taylor Swift) wants to see a real tree. All the trees in Thneedville are plastic, as is just about everything else. Thneedville is about the most fake town ever. Even the air needs to be bought, and it is supplied by O’Hare (Rob Riggle) Air. Read more... (727 words, 87 images, estimated 2:54 mins reading time)
I never got to watch the original Dark Shadows back in the day. I was living in Columbus, Ohio, at the time, and WOSU Channel 34 PBS did not pick it up. If it did, it was most likely on at some hour that seven-year-old schoolgirl would not be watching. As I grew older, and learned of the shows that were getting imported to PBS from across the pond, I took an instant liking to Doctor Who. The Tomorrow People left me confused, and Upstairs, Downstairs did the same, even though my mother really liked it. All through the 80s, when I lived in Central Florida, the gothic geeks raved about this show, but I still never got to see it, and now that I’ve seen this Tim Burton version of it, I know there has to something more that what was on this surface of what could only be a parody of the actual show. I’ve watched my share of British TV shows, and this one was very Americanized for the big screen. Read more... (861 words, 130 images, estimated 3:27 mins reading time)
This has got to be the silliest fantasy movie ever, but that’s not so bad. The focus is not on the eldest prince of the land of someplace we never learn the name of, but on the younger prince. While Fabious (James Falco) is the dashing, courageous quester, his brother, Thadeous (Danny McBride) is happier being the arrogant, lazy courtier that prefers to hang out with the trolls by the river and smoke their herbal mixes. His constant companion is Courtney (Rasmus Hardiker) a servant that has become his best friend and confidante. This life of ease for Thadeous is about to end.
Fabious goes on yet another quest, and slays this week’s monster, and rescues a fair damsel from the keep of an evil wizard. Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) has been kept prisoner by Leezar (Justin Theroux) for a very specific purpose, but when Fabious finds her, he is instantly smitten and brings her home to meet his father, King Tallious (Charles Dance), and announces to the court he and Belladonna are to be married. They are immediately preparing for a grand wedding the next day. The happy day is soon interrupted by Leezar as he comes to claim Belladonna by magickal means. Meanwhile, out on the river, Thadeous has skipped the wedding and is getting high with his troll friends. Read more... (587 words, 119 images, estimated 2:21 mins reading time)
We have seen some movies about characters from parallel worlds coming to our own before, but this the first one to use the classic animated fairytale world. Sure there was The Purple Rose of Cairo, back in the 80s which featured an adventurer from a 1930s movie serial, and a similar mini-series, The Tenth Kingdom, brought characters from a fairytale land to New York, as what has happened in Enchanted. Even Tin Man brought people over from Oz to collect the story’s main protagonist. Those two stories were far more serious and a bit more mature than this one. Hey, it’s a Disney family movie, and it brings the two classic Disney formulas together beautifully! Read more... (771 words, 102 images, estimated 3:05 mins reading time)
