Into the Woods Movie Review #IntoTheWoods #MovieReview #movies #entertainment #review

I had the chance to see Into The Woods at an advanced screening last week, and let me tell you, it blew me away. I’ve never seen the stage production, so I was going in as a blank slate.
The film opens up with a introductory song that turned out to be one of my favorites. It really allows the viewers to see each of the characters that the film follows and understand what each secretly wishes for.

From the moment this movie began I was hooked on the visuals. Every little detail is taken care of, the costumes are spectacular, the sets are spot on, and in its entirety the film creates a very enchanted, whimsical, and slightly haunting sight to behold.
Besides being beautiful to look at, the movie is comprised of a great cast. Who doesn’t love Meryl Streep? The answer is no one, because she is the be all, end all, of this film. Her portrayal of the witch ties everything together so well. The entire cast really give Into The Woods a lot of livelihood and color.

They deliver killer vocals through out, some of my favorites include On The Steps of The Place (Anna Kendrick’s belt at the end gave me chills), Agony (These princes will kill you with humor), and of course No One is Alone. Seriously, if you weren’t into musicals before, after this movie you will be.
The pacing of the film is really good, and it never leaves you checking your watch to see how long must be left. Without giving away too much I will say that there is one point where I definitely thought the movie was over…until suddenly it wasn’t. There was entirely new plot to be figured out, which is a bit disorienting at first but not unpleasant.

Overall this film is fantastic, I went into it with pretty high hopes that were endlessly met. While this film is rated PG I do believe it is probably geared towards an older audience, which is refreshing coming from Disney. Beautiful, haunting, and humorous; Into the Woods is a clever reimagining of the fairytales you thought you knew.

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

 

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

 

 

In DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France, next to a famous Michelin starred eatery, is nearly cause for an all-out war between the two establishments until Le Saule Pleureur’s icy proprietress Madame Mallory recognizes her rival’s undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals.
