Into the Woods Trailer

Into-the-Woods-Movie-Meryl-Streep-as-the-Witch

The idea of Into the Woods is an interesting one. It brings together many fairy tales under one roof and use the musical format to tell the tale. Based on the Tony Award winning play Into the Woods brings together a big cast to play many of the characters that Disney has brought to life. After Chicago, Rob Marshall movie career hasn’t really gone anywhere special. To me it seems that Chicago may have been a fluck with the filmmaker. To me he may be able to reclaim his former glory but it seems he may have another Nine on his hands.

Set in an alternate world of various Grimm fairy tales, the film intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood“, “Jack and the Beanstalk“, “Rapunzel“, and “Cinderella“, as well as several others. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed childless by a Witch, they must embark into the woods to find the objects required to break the spell and begin a family. The film is tied together to the original story of the baker and his wife, their interaction with the Witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy musical eventually becomes a meaningful tale about responsibility, the problems that come from wishes, and the legacy that we leave our children.

Directed by Rob Marshall. Starring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, and James Corden. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

I didn’t really love it like everyone else did when it started but over the years it got worse and worse but the popularity just keeps getting bigger. I will never really understand fandom. I like shows and movies but I’ve never been to the point where I will go on and on about the show. The Walking Dead seems like one of those things. Fandoms tend to ruin things for me. When all you talk about that one subject for a prolonged period of time I start to get really annoyed with the love and I start to hate it more. I try my best to avoid the fandom for Doctor Who and Game of Thrones because I absolutely love those shows. With The Walking Dead things just got out of control. It all turned into boring slog of a show when every episode felt like the last one and nothing seemed to be going anywhere except for killing zombies and nothing of any redeeming value.
