‘Megamind’ is Hilarious

Will Farrell, Tina Fey, and Brad Pitt make up the A-listers who voice the leading characters in Dreamworks new Film, ‘Megamind’. I’m sure these actors didn’t come cheap but it was well worth the big paychecks. This is the kind of film parents will happily take their children too, while having big laughs of their own. The film really counts on fantastic animation that creates believable characters, all-be-it blue characters, who have human emotions. Will Ferrell’s voice leads perfectly to the zany villain Megamind. Brad Pitt, of course, plays the blonde, blue eyed, leading man, as he has his whole career, MetroMan. Which leaves the quirky Tina Fey who refreshingly plays a confident female leading lady that little girls can look up to. All in all, good film for a whole family.

‘Burlesque’ has Old Musical Charm

If you can withstand the cliché beginning of ‘Burlesque’ following Ali (Christina Aguilera) from small town to big city you are in for a treat. A dark look into the behind the scenes lives of showgirls and stage performers. Cher is brilliant as ever. No…really, she’s incredible. She is the musical maven of this fantasy land which houses over choreographed dance numbers and an unrealistic Sunset Strip. This world may be fantasy, it is, however, a fantasy world I loved visiting. The best part of this film, in my opinion is the impeccable Stanley Tucci. He amazingly steals the scenes from legendary divas. I suggest smuggling in a bottle of champagne, finding a reclining chair and enjoying the musical take place in front of you.
