Movie Issues: Big Eyes

If I were to tell you that Tim Burton had a new movie and it wasn’t weird you’d call me a lair. Well, it’s true! Burton’s new movie, Big Eyes, is a biographical film staring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, focusing on the American artist Margaret Keane (Adams) who’s work was fraudulently claimed in the 1950s and 60s by her then-husband, Walter Keane (Waltz). The film tells the story of their marriage, life, and their heated divorce trial wherein Margaret accuses Walter of stealing her paintings and selling them as his own.

Rob Marshall is no stranger to directing a Broadway stage show turned live action movie, having directed Best Picture winner, Chicago in 2003. Going back to his musical roots and taking a stab at Stephen Sondheim’s 1986 stage classic, Into The Woods. For anyone not familiar with the show it has a very simple story: Many different fairy tale characters inhabit the same world and each gets lost in the woods searching for his or her own personal want or need. All the being orchestrated by an evil witch with her own plan. Thus all the stories come to head together though beautiful direction, amazing acting and wonderful singing which gave way to a very enjoyable movie.

Movie Issues: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

A film series that started in 2001 with Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings series has finally come to end. Our second long journey though middle earth has reached its climax with the new film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. We pick up right where we last left our hobbits. Bilbo and Company are forced to engage in a war against an array of combatants and keep the terrifying Smaug from acquiring a kingdom of treasure and obliterating all of Middle-Earth. In this last of three pictures we see action, war, blood, gore, brotherhood and love. Out of the three Hobbit pictures, this is by far the best one.
