Alice Through the Looking Glass Is Snoozeworthy!

Alice at Hatter's Place

Alice Through the Looking Glass is a collection of pretty pictures, great VFX (lovely 3D!) and a handful of moving moments, a few good laughs and some genuine wit – all enshrouded in many, many, many moments that threaten an unexpected bout of nap attack.

The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger is one that, if it weren’t true, would be thought too ridiculous to film. The kingpin of Boston crime was actually an FBI informant when the FBI was trying to take down the Boston Mafia – by playing the FBI he helped take them down while being given the freedom to build his own criminal empire.

Johnny Depp once again disappears into a role as he brings Bulger to life.

Black Mass a Tedious Mob Movie Michelle’s Review!

Johnny Depp in Black Mass

To say that Johnny Depp’s performance, as Boston Mobster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger in Black Mass is his best performance in years, really isn’t saying much. The number one problem with this film is that there’s no range in his performance and you can almost see him thinking “This is going to get me some award nominations.”

Mortdecai Is Mostly Dead!

Mortdecai - Oops!

Once again, Johnny Depp shows his talent for slipping completely into a character. What a shame that this character is almost completely unnoteworthy.

Mortdecai (the movie) wants to be a knowing send up of sixties caper movies, espionage thrillers and, possibly, the superb BBC series Lovejoy. Instead, it’s Johnny Depp plays the worst of Mr. Bean – in a Rolls.

Behind The Scenes: Into The Woods – From Stage To Screen!

INTO THE WOODS

Although Disney’s Into The Woods is doing well in theaters, it was considered to be a risky move – taking a three-hour hit Broadway musical and turning it into a two-hour movie. Plus, there was the fact that Into The Woods is not the lightest exploration of fairy tales.

On the plus side, director Rob Marshall was an old hand at adapting Broadway hits into movie form – his Chicago nabbed a few Oscars® – and the screenplay for Into The Woods was adapted by James Lapine, who, with Stephen Sondheim, created the original musical.

So, what did it take to take Into The Woods from stage to screen? Follow the jump to check out a video dealing with that very topic.
