Snow White and the Huntsman (2012): The Beautiful and the Bland | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it
I finally resigned myself to watching Snow White and the Huntsman tonight. At the price of £4.59 for an HD download via PS3 store, I thought, ‘Why not?’ Before I go into the who’s...

 

How wrong can you go with the story of Snow White? Apparently very wrong. Mike's review says it all. Waiting for cable sounds like my perfect solution.

Time-traveling 'Looper' starts strong, remains intriguing ★★★

Time-traveling 'Looper' starts strong, remains intriguing ★★★ | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it
For about an hour "Looper" really cooks. Its second half is more of a medium boil, and less fun. But watching it, I realized how few commercial entertainments hold up straight through to the end-point.

The Real Story of the Von Trapp Family

The Real Story of the Von Trapp Family | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it

Prologue Magazine: The real story of the  Von Trapp Family. Less sweet than "The Sound of Music," but much more interesting and real. If you like the story behind the story, this is great stuff. If you live in New England, you probably already know it since they settled here and were/are well-known local celebrities.

Explainer: understanding Sopa: IMPORTANT!!

Explainer: understanding Sopa: IMPORTANT!! | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it
Will 2012 see the end of the internet as we know it? The House judiciary committee tried to finalize the Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa) before Christmas for a vote early next year.

 

This and its companion bill PIPA will affect everyone who uses a computer, in the US and around the globe. This is, sadly, neither sci fi, nor a joke. It's terribly real and the results will be immediate and ugly for all of us. Please read this!

Review:  'Hotel Transylvania' harmless monster comedy | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it
“Hotel Transylvania” is a harmless and generally amusing animated comedy featuring a raft of familiar movie monsters.

 

For animation fanciers, especially those with younger kids, this sounds like a good choice. I'll wait for cable, thanks.

Finally “Quiet Man” cottage where John Wayne wooed Maureen O’Hara will be saved - VIDEOS

Finally “Quiet Man” cottage where John Wayne wooed Maureen O’Hara will be saved - VIDEOS | Movies From Mavens | Scoop.it

Garry and I visited the site where the cottage had been in 1990 on our honeymoon. 22 years ago, there was nothing left to restore. It was a few bits of rubble, no walls, no roof, barely the outline of what had been a cottage. This is not a restoration, it is a recreation, and $5 million dollars? Surely you jest. Even at today's inflated prices, that is absurdly over the top and nothing more than a tourist scam. I love the movie and Ireland as much as anyone, but excuse me when I say that regardless of source, bullshit is still bullshit. THIS is bullshit.
