It’s a decent enough fantasy adventure on its own terms, though despite the title, the real star here isn’t so much Chris Hemsworth, reprising […]Read On »

CD Review: MALEFICENT soundtrack

Genre films have always held a rewarding spell for James Newton Howard, an astonishingly adept, and prolific composer who from his first supernatural score to 1990s “Flatliners” has taken to the thematic majesty of a chorally-powered, symphonic orchestra to both horrifically dark and soaringly heroic effect – both emotional ends of which meet like never before in his magnificent MALIFICENT. For one of the best villain apologist fantasies in many a moon, Howard becomes a sorcerer’s apprentice as he unleashes Disney’s most infamous she-devil in all of her unexpectedly moving might. While he’s accompanied lost civilizations (ATLANTIS), talking thunder lizards […]Read On »

Stars: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin Writers: Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock, Hossein Amini Director: Rupert Sanders Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: June 1, 2012 After Julia Roberts tore through scenery in the campy MIRROR, MIRROR early this year, prospects for the second big studio reboot of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale certainly didn’t look promising. However, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN has just the right amount of reinvention and visual panache, that it turns out to be a pretty decent movie. The story is way too familiar, which is one of its big drawbacks, but director […]Read On »
