The New Adventures Of Aladdin Trailer


While it might look like an anachronistic live action reimagining of the classic Eastern folk tale, 'The New Adventures of Aladdin' is actually based on a story told by a pair of thieves at a department store on Christmas Eve. Sam and Khalid are best pals and partners in crime who decided to dress up as Santa Claus for their latest robbery, however their plan is foiled by a group of kids who demand they tell them a story. With the store owner also urging them to relay a tale, they decided to launch into their own version of Aladdin. Set in the city of Baghdad many years ago where taxis are magic carpets that still need stop signs, where magic lamps lock like iPhones and people sell knock-off CDs from the future in the street, Sam tells of the tyrannous rule of Vizir who Aladdin plans to defeat with the help of an effeminate Genie and hopefully win the heart of the beautiful Princess Shallia along the way.

The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc-Sec Review


Excellent
Lively and raucously entertaining, this female Indiana Jones romp makes little sense but keeps us engaged due to its sparky characters and a bit of deranged subtext. And writer-director Besson clearly has fun adapting comic book imagery to the big screen.

In 1911 Paris, Adele (Bourgoin) is a novelist who travels the world in search of adventures to write about. Her latest quest takes her to Egypt, where she uncovers a Pharaoh's tomb and sneaks off with his physician's mummy, who she plans to resurrect with help from her mad-scientist friend Esperandieu (Nercessian), all in an attempt to cure her badly injured twin sister (de Clermont). But the doctor's experimentation has brought to life a hatchling pterodactyl, which is now menacing Paris. Apparently surrounded by incompetents, Adele will have to fix everything herself.

La Vie En Rose Review


Good
The fact that Olivier Dahan's lengthy retread into the life of French chanteuse Edith Piaf has subtitles shouldn't distract you from what's going on. La Vie En Rose, though more stylish in a half-assed, Jeunet-aping sort of way, carbon-copies the DNA of Hollywood musician biopics Ray and Walk the Line and, for better or worse, becomes another in a long line of over-hyped cinematic biographies.

Played by the radiant Marion Cotillard, Piaf rose to stardom as France's most infamous and celebrated singer. Her inebriated bravado and playful demeanor only enlivened her fluid, stunning voice, creating some of the most entertaining and dynamic live performances ever given by a solo vocalist. Rising up with her best friend Momone (a solid Sylvie Testud), Piaf was saved from a youth spent being raised in a bordello when her father couldn't keep things together. Singing on the street, Piaf was finally found by club owner Louis Leplee (the reliably great Gerard Depardieu). From there, Piaf furthered her talents and eventually became the great singer we now know her as.
