Into the Woods [Jan. 22nd, 2015|12:19 pm]
MorbidFrog
Tuesday 20 January

Into the Woods, not too sure what to make of it, i loved how they intertwined all the fairy tales, Depp as a wolf, Streep is great as a witch, the scenery, the re-instating of some of the more dark bits of the original tales (like cutting of toes in Cinderella). Some moments were so cheesy it was funny (the princes duet) and i guess I love fairytales and I like musicals ...but it just wasn't that whoaaaa, I think it was the pacing, the last 30min of twists was unexpected which i was good but made it a bit too long. I was also full of cold so it might not have helped...the rest of the time since Tuesday was lost to the land of nigth nurse....but back to work today

If you like stories that mix fairytales together, have you read Neil Gaiman's 'The Sleeper and the Spindle'? You'd probably like it, and the artwork's great.
