Tell us what you thought of 'Into the Woods'

Posted by · 11:12 am · December 27th, 2014

The other big wide prestige release on Christmas Day this year was Rob Marshall's adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim classic “Into the Woods.” Streep and costumes and sets and songs, oh my. This…isn't my thing. Nails on a chalkboard, really. But I did get a kick out of Emily Blunt and Chris Pine, and Streep was pretty great. Top notch design for the most part (though I would assume Colleen Atwood will happily defer to Johnny Depp on that wolf costume…).

But fans of the stage sensation will probably dig it. So we put the question to you: Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Somewhere in the middle? How does it weigh against Marshall's other movie musical excursions? Is it increasingly obvious his best asset on “Chicago” was a Bill Condon screenplay that elevated the material? I'm just asking…

Hoof it back over to the comments section with your thoughts if you get around to seeing it this week/weekend. And don't forget to vote in our poll.
