Do you even dare to look?

Rare footage of the original London cast of “Phantom of the Opera”, featuring Rosemary Ashe in “Hannibal”, Steve Barton and Sarah Brightman in “All I Ask of You”, the cast in “Masquerade” (beautifully shot) and Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in “Point of No Return”. 

In total 9 minutes of footage, it’s very well worth a watch, despite the annoying voiceovers here and there.

Why is everybody drinking the ‘Maleficent’ kool-aide?!

Saw Maleficent. Wanted my money back halfway through. Way to neuter one of the most iconic Disney character’s of all time. Mistress of all evil? Hardly. And such a great handling on making Prince Philip a ditzy pretty boy who has hardly no additional character development. I mean, in the original he SLAYED the dragon to get to Aurora, but I suppose when your title character doesnt even turn into said dragon it’s hard to follow through with that. Whatever. I give up. It was a camp fest that offered next to nothing new in the way of the character. What could have been a strong character driven film about a womans decent into evil became a choppy chick-flick that had as much bite as How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet, debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain or simply a new species of humanity fighting for their share of the world? Either way it is a historical fact: Sharing the world has never been humanity’s defining attribute.

Story First, CGI Second: Mini Review X-Men DOFP

In an age of so much flash and bang being pumped into every superhero film that graces the big screen, what Singer did with DOFP was such a welcome breath of fresh air. Yes the film had its wow moments,and plenty of epic battle scenes, but as a whole it was a character piece, and that is something that hasnt happened since Nolans TDK trilogy.

I ‘m going to keep this short and say that I do believe this film is currently THE best Marvel superhero movie of all time, while FOX is the studio to release the film, I say Marvel because the character are still from the Marvel brand just not in the Disney/Marvel camp that nearly every other character is. And I am actually glad they are not. Disney/Marvel would never release a film of this depth and tone. No, they pump out shiny pieces like Thor TDW and Avengers, that offer plenty of thrills but little to no character or heart.
