Movie Trailer: Into the Woods (2014)

Why settle on re-imaging one fairy tale at a time (“Jack The Giant Slayer,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” “Snow White and the Huntsman”) when a host of them can be combined and kneaded into a single movie? With Into the Woods, Walt Disney Pictures does just that, threading elements of Cinderella, Little Red Riding…

Movie Review: Maleficent (2014)

Everyone’s invited to Disney’s PG pity-party Maleficent.

Movie Review: Jack The Giant Slayer (2013)

The newest “fairy tale epic” production, Jack the Giant Slayer, when compared to others of its genre, fits neatly beneath “The Brothers Grimm,” above “Snow White and the Huntsman (thanks to the presence of British actors and the absence of Kristin Stewart) and FAR above last month’s travesty, “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.” It is…
