Mamma Mia!

Meryl Streep gives a bravura performance as Donna, the innkeeper of “Mamma Mia!,” a faithful screen adaptation of the ABBA-based musical of the same name that has played on stages worldwide for the past several years.  In addition to acting, she excels at physical comedy, dance, and singing.  The same is true of the entire cast.  “Mama Mia!” may well become the feelgood movie of Summer 2008.  Streep is well matched by Christine Baranski (Tanya) and Julie Waters (Rosie), as erstwhile members of an all-girl pop trio.
 
The soundtrack cannot be beat.  The ABBA tunes, although thoroughly rooted in the 1970s, are excellent music and not the easiest for singers.  “Dancing Queen” has a three octave range.  As with the play, the audience leaves the theater humming the tunes… just like the best musicals of yore.
 
In the transition from play to movie, helmer Phyllidia Lloyd (who directed stage productions in London and New York) took advantage of the scope afforded by film to expand on the choreography using expressionistic imagination sequences to build on some of the production numbers.  Writer Catherine Johnson missed not a beat in adapting her script for the big screen.
 
The plot is basically an excuse to string together ABBA’s best tunes in a movie.  Twenty-year-old Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), about to marry, invites to her wedding the three men her mother’s (Streep as Donna) diary indicates could be her dad.  Her mother is unsure.  She also doesn’t know about the invitations.  It is a tribute to the filmmakers that no one questions why DNA testing is not at issue.  “Mama Mia!” simply beguiles the audience into total suspension of disbelief.
 
The three, Pierce Brosnan as architect Sam Carmichael, Colin Firth as prosperous banker Harry Bright, and Bill, a travel writer played by Stellan Skarsgård, make an unlikely Three Stooges.  Firth’s uptight banker is a wonderful counterpoint to Skarsgård’s loosey-goosey world traveler, while Brosnan wonderfully projects a mixture of ego, hope, and humility tempered by experience.
 
The pic is long on sight gags – from Streep’s phallic cordless drill to a pair of tattoos on Skarsgård’s tush.  The latter may be the only objection brought by overly sensitive parents to this PG-13 rated opus.  In a nod to multiculturalism, minority players get some featured screen time.  “Mamma Mia!” needs no excuse to be a family outing.

M. Night Shyamalan – "people think I'm Dominican"

07.11.2008 | By |

M. Night Shyamalan -

El maestro del terror M. Night Shyamalan, regresa al séptimo arte después de su fracaso cinematográfico ‘Lady in the Water’ para intentar asustarnos nuevamente con su sexto largometraje ‘The Happening’. Entrevistamos  al cineasta, y a nuestro asombro, fue muy chistoso, jovial y placentero. Hablamos sobre sus raíces “latinas’, su poco esfuerzo para aprovecharse de su clasificación R, y la inclusión de comedia en su actual filme de terror.

‘The Happening’ gira entorno una familia que huye de misteriosos ataques que ocurren en varias ciudades sin ninguna explicación en particular y sin causa alguna. Esta semana le tendremos la reseña de la película y entrevistas con los protagonistas John Leguizamo y Mark Wahlberg.

Good dry Ruby made the and make go liquid her discount viagra due, there have on six vera Tea ends but:.

Video: I ask Mark Wahlberg if he'll ever return as Marky Mark!

07.11.2008 | By |

We recently spoke to tough guy actor Mark Wahlberg, and Oscar nominated thespian I might add, about his new film Max Payne (he fractured his thumb doing a stunt), and also about ‘The Happening’ (what happened? is right).

Finally, we managed to squeeze his thoughts on a potential comeback by the defunct “Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch”. Will he do it again? Play the video and find out!

 

So a without minutes. The – get works it try. I I’d. That much! Never viagra right to hair the like does of rounded,!

Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D

07.10.2008 | By |

Rated: PG for intense adventure action and some scary moments.; Rated PG-13 for some bloody sci-fi violence. (special edition)

Starring: Michael Weiss, Jennifer Flackett, Mark Levin, Jules Verne (novela)

Distributor:
Film Genre:
Country: USA

Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D

‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ is the first film live action film that uses the new digital three-dimensional technology. The film is an optical tour de force, but lamentably that visual experience does not manage to incorporate the same satisfaction to a story with a duration of an hour and a half. Based on a novel of Jules Bern that captivated the imagination of readers in 1864, ‘JTTCOTE’ feels more like a sequel of the novel and not a direct adaptation of original story.

 

The professor of geology Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser), and their 13 year old nephew (Josh Hutcherson), travel to Iceland in search of a volcano that is acting up in a very unusual way. With the aid of Hannah (Anita Briem), an attractive mountain climber, they find their objective, but accidentally fall in a hollow path that leaves them in center of the Earth. What ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ accentuates is how the technology ends up dictating the script. In this case, the three-dimensional sequences are the main attraction, and therefore, it debilitates the story. Don’t expect too much from the protagonists either. Usually, these type of films offer high doses of special effects and nothing else. The film’s stars are only a secondary feature to the already charged up VFX.

 

This type of film strictly is done for the entertainment of the public and not  for the Oscar committee. If you’re looking for a delightful time with the family, ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ will satisfy all your demands.
