Movie Review: Into the Woods

The Disney musical is finally out and its just super awesome! I was laughing the entire time and just enjoying the movie! If you’re not into musicals or fairytales, this ain’t for you, but if you were like meee, loving all the magic in the world, then you will LOVE it!

The movie is about five fairytales coming together as the main character of each story travels through the woods. You have, Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) going to sell his cow, Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) who is sneaking into the ball, Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) going to visit her grandma and the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) who were sent to the woods to collect four items for the village Witch (Meryl Streep). There’s also Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) who was a bit useless in the movie hehehe.

From the first scene, the cinematography and the beautiful use of colors in the costumes and the setting caught my eyes! It was very pretty and just puts me in a magical mood. The story as well is mixed in a great way. All the characters are blended in one big coherent plot. And I also was happy to see that the versions of the fairy tales in this movie kept to the original tales, the ones with some bloody details.

If there was one thing that made it work in this movie, it was the cast!! Such a brilliant ensemble!! Johnny Depp was perfect, PERFECT as the Wolf! Even though his part wasn’t that long, but he nailed it! Chris Pine played Cinderella’s Prince and he was super hilarious! He really over played the prince charming and was even comical about it. I loved Emily Blunt. She was supper funny and her role was so genuine. She’s already nominated for a Golden Globe. Meryl Streep is nominated as well and in this movie she tops them all!! I LOVE HER!! She’s a genius actress, no one is like her! In this movie she is AMAZING and her voice and the way she sings, it’s awesome!

The movie as well is full with all the good messages that each fairytale had, like be careful what you wish for and other. They are more than just a story, they really do have nice messages to deliver.   

So, if you enjoy fairytales and musicals, this is the movie for you! For more info and to watch the trailer, please click here.

Till again!!!
