"My first R-rated movie in the theater!I'll always have a fondness for it,particularly the one-liners.Anytime I'm in an elevator with certain people,it's a race to say "Jesus,Bob,what button did you push?""-James

"I love this movie!i wish i was old enough to have seen in the Theater."-MJ

Review: "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms"

byChris Feil

Yes,Disney'sThe Nutcracker and the Four Realmsis another attempt to monetize a familiar property into CGI fantasy excess.This time it is the Tchaikovsky ballet (itself an adaptation of an adaptation) getting the family film treatment,often owing more narratively to its cinematic genre predecessors like Alice in Wonderland and the Narnia movies than its actual source material.While it does fall into the garish trappings of those films,the film gets a good bit more mileage out of not taking itself so straightfaced.Within that familiar framework,the film fascinates by letting itself get a little cuckoo.

Mackenzie Foy is Clara,a young girl mourning the death of her mother,bestowed a mysterious egg-shaped lockbox as a Christmastime dowry.Spiritually guided by her godfather,played by Morgan Freeman In An Eyepatch,she ventures into the fantasy land formerly visited by her mother.But now that wintery world is at war with itself,three of its more upbeat realms against a foggy,mouse-infested one lorded over by Helen Mirren's Mother Ginger.

1740 The Marquis de Sade is born.Lives on in immortal infamy and morphs into Geoffrey Rush in 2000 for the SAG & Golden Globe nominatedQuills.I always forget that that movie WON Best Picture at the NBR and then wasn't even Oscar nominated for Best Picture (a thing that doesn't happen super often.)

1865 The American Civil War reaches a major turning point signalling the end (basically) when the final Confederate army ceases to exist with a surrender in Missississippi.There's a million movies on the matter (well,not that event in particular).The wounds have obviously become reinfected of late,so expect even more.

1904 Athlete and movie star Johnny Weismuller born in Austria-Hungary (in what is now Romania)...
