Music, Magic and Mahem (doh!) in DVD
In DVD this week, we have three very different films. The gentle elegance of music, and bringing a song to life, is celebrated in Once. Everyone I know who saw this, went home and downloaded the soundtrack, a very cool film. Stardust is pure fantasy fun. Love, ego, a king, a pirate, witches, a star, a hero ... good stuff. Comedy was strong in film in 2007, and The Simpsons Movie was among the best. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the gang from Springfield in this funny, irreverent film.
