Into The Woods…

So, who’s seen INTO THE WOODS? When it first came out, I wasn’t exactly excited to see it. And had I known it was a musical…for SURE I wouldn’t have seen it. But a few friends mentioned they wanted to see it, so I figured I’d risk it to hang out with some friends. The company was WAY better than the movie, put it that way.

Cinema Sound Off

Welcome to another installment of Cinema Sound Off! ~~~ Here’s the little summary from IMBD: In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind. My Review: Okay, first off, there is a lot of blood–and I mean a lot–in this movie. I’m all for a great vampire flick, any day. But jeepers, this one was really full of blood. Gross sounds, too. Yikes. BUT, having said that,[…]
