Just a week after "Uncle Magorium's Wonder Emporium" began to become the most fascinating and magical movie of the 2007 holiday season enchanted review, Disney Studios became a vibrant, electric and sweet "Enchanted". Appears in the scene. And yes, a haunted movie that is easily Disney's best live-action outing in the last few years.
The previously unknown Amy Adams, nominated for an Oscar in the 2005 underrated "Junebug," is her typical fairy tale prince, despite concerns about Eduardo's beast stepmother. -Completely fascinating as a typical storybrook princess Gisele who wants to elope with Edward (James Marsden). , Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) and her loyal servant, Nathaniel (Timothy Spall).
"Enchantment" begins with the glorious tradition of Disney's 2D hand-drawn animated films before Queen Narissa tricks Giselle into making her wishes at her wish well and sending them to the land where she lives. Known as New York City.
After an unpleasant experience in this strange new land, Gisele was reluctantly rescued by lawyer Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his daughter Morgan (Rachel Covey). .. Girlfriend Nancy (Idina Menzel).
Accepting "Enchanted" actually mandates the ability to interrupt her beliefs, ignore logic, and surrender to Kevin Lima's incredible magical fairy tales. For those who can immerse themselves in the charm of "enchantments," the cinematic experience is filled with a mysterious, childish smile, along with the inevitable hum of Disney's most sung soundtrack. increase.
For some reason, the movie does not completely recover from the chaotic joy of this particular musical number. Part of the joy of this number is the mischievous thrill of watching a beloved and almost sacred movie, in this case "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Disney's first sublime animated film upside down. Comes from. Warner Bros.'s old animators were sometimes willing to target Disney, but it's another thing to see Disney ship Disney, so to speak, and do it with such unruly, subtle irreverence. That is. "Snow White" remade by John Waters.
It's not surprising that the "enchantment" stumbles to the end, as it's too much to expect Disney to completely dismantle his own myth and release the young woman's heart from the charming prince's curse. .. The ending is as disappointing as Queen Narissa of Susan Sarandon comes in with a bite of bile as if she were dressed in a fetish ball. The Queen is long-term because of the goofy Prince Edward (excellent James Marsden), the clever flies of the ointment (also the stellar Timothy Spall), and the computer-generated pip named Cimaris (spoken). (By Mr. Lima and Jeff Bennett) who are mercilessly late for the party. I would be happy to talk about the close call to Pip's crucifixion, but I don't want to scare the kids.
