The Peanuts Movie Review

Very Good

Snoopy, Charlie Brown and friends finally arrive on the big screen in a movie that sticks close to the gently comical tone of the comic strip that launched in 1950 and the vintage TV shows from the 1960s and 1970s. Apart from whizzy digital animation, the film has the same stylised look and internalised storytelling. It's utterly charming, perhaps appealing more to nostalgic grown-ups than kids who aren't used to material that's so simple and sophisticated at the same time.

The story starts on the first snow day of winter, as Charlie Brown (voiced by Noah Schnapp) occupies his free time worrying about how he can reinvent himself to impress the red-haired girl (Francesca Angelucci Capaldi) who has just moved in across the street. He's certainly nervous enough without the constant torment of his pushy neighbour Lucy (Hadley Belle Miller) or his enterprising little sister Sally (Mariel Sheets), who works out ways to profit from Charlie's newly found celebrity when he aces a test at school. And then there's Charlie's faithful dog Snoopy (Bill Melendez), who is imagining a series of high-flying adventures in aerial dogfights against the Red Baron for the affections of a fluffy poodle (Kristin Chenoweth).

The animation style is sharp and enjoyably unfussy, playing with the characters' iconic figures without turning them into generic movie shapes. Best of all is the way their facial features retain a hand-drawn touch that echoes creator Charles Schulz's distinctly expressive imagery. There are also some wonderful animated line-art sequences. Meanwhile, the script is written by Schulz's son and grandson, maintaining the same sense of humour, with silly gags underscored by real emotions. At the centre are two things most kids (and adults) can instantly identify with: Charlie's crippling self-doubt and Snoopy's unfettered imagination. So even if some of the twists and turns of the story feel rather corny (including Snoopy's love interest and Charlie's instant fame), there's so much charm and soul that the film can't help but win us over.

The Descendants Disney Ed Sheeran Kristin Chenoweth

The soundtrack to Disney TV movie Descendants has debuted at Number One on this week’s Billboard album chart. The album is now the fourth soundtrack to take the number one spot so far this year, following in the footsteps of Empire, Furious 7 and Pitch Perfect 2.

the descendants castSophie Reynolds, Kristin Chenoweth and Dove Cameron star in Disney’s Descendants.

But the Descendants soundtrack has also earned the unfortunate title of being the lowest selling album to take the top spot since Nielsen Music began tracking album sales in 1991. The soundtrack sold just 42,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Aug. 6 to take the top spot.

The Boy Next Door Review


OK

A cheesy TV movie ramped up with language and violence, this sudsy thriller is far more fun to watch than it should be. With its tepid spin on the plot of Fatal Attraction, the film strains to be a bunny-boiler, but entertains the audience because it's so preposterous that not a single moment is remotely believable. And since the cast refuses to play it straight, camping it up while smirking at the camera, it's enjoyable in all the wrong ways.

Jennifer Lopez stars as Claire, a high school teacher who has recently split from her husband Garrett (John Corbett) and is still getting used to life on her own with teen son Kevin (Ian Nelson). Then the astoundingly hunky 19-year-old Noah (played by 27-year-old Ryan Guzman) moves in next door with his invalid uncle (Jack Wallace) after his parents die in a fiery car crash. Super friendly, Noah quickly begins to help Kevin stand up to the school bullies and pursue the hot girl (Lexi Atkins). But Noah also begins to flirt relentlessly with Claire, and in a moment of neediness she gives in. While she sees this as a mildly transgressive restorative fling, Noah thinks it's true love, and pursues her tenaciously. And when Claire begins to trying to patch things up with Garrett, Noah takes Kevin out for a bit of gun practice.

Despite a tendency to drift into grisly violence, there's nothing edgy here. It's a swirling storm of innuendo and suggestion, with a strong sense of menace that never quite convinces us, even with a couple of gruesome plot points. This may be because the camera clearly loves Lopez so much that we know she's never in danger.

Fairies And Goblins Come To Life In George Lucas Animation 'Strange Magic' [Trailer + Pictures]


George Lucas Evan Rachel Wood Kristin Chenoweth Alan Cumming

Set to captivate audiences of all ages, 'Strange Magic' is the enchanting animated comedy from George Lucas, who may have taken a step back from the big budget adventure blockbusters of 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars', but certainly still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Strange Magic logo

With a hilarious cast featuring Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, 'Strange Magic' sees a fairytale land divided into the magical and the mysterious, with the twain never meeting until one fateful day. Suddenly, there seems to be an impending all out war, with both cultures disturbed by the sight of each other and unwilling to accept each other's differences (doesn't sound like such a fantasy land after all, right?).
