Enchanted (2007) The real world and the animated world collide

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! At the beginning of our……

This rendition of a movie classic is funny, sadistic and totally fun to watch. We get to see The Devil in all HER glory as she tries to take the soul of a love struck geek Elliot. He has 7 wishes to make all his dreams come true and The Devil is sure to make sure that his life is interesting to say the least. While this might not be the best film from Brendan Fraser it will make you lave non the less. We get to see just how bad a life can be screwed up when we let someone else take care of our dreams and wishes. It will be a film that you will come back to……

The MatchMaker (1997)

Aside from the strong language, this romantic comedy is really cute, and is one I come back to time and again. Marcy Tizard (Janeane Garofalo) is a cynical campaign worker for Senator John McGlory (Jay O. Sanders), an incumbent running for reelection in Boston. The Senator is a good man, but he has had problems sticking to certain issues in the past, and these little mini-scandals are coming to bite him during this election season. Since Boston has such a heavy Irish population, the senator’s slick campaign manager, Nick (Denis Leary) is looking to play up the Irish ethnic factor of the senator’s roots. They send Marcy to Ballinagra, supposedly the town in Ireland where the McGlorys came from in……
