I just learned that the article I wrote on the historical High King Macbeth is running again today in The Independent, a British publication. Apparently there is a new movie of Macbeth debuting in London.

Into the Woods

Happy Holidays to all!  We just got back from spending the holiday with our younger daughter and her family.  In addition to fabulous food and drink at Lonesome Valley Brewery in Prescott Valley, AZ, we enjoyed going to an excellent movie:  “Into the Woods.”  I’ve seen the stage play, and I thought the writer and director did a fabulous job of adapting the material for a family audience.  The movie is substantially shorter than the stage version, and some characters have been omitted, but the story and message still come through, perhaps even more strongly for being condensed.  Performances were excellent, too, but with a cast like that, how could you miss?

Best little movie that was never released…

Go rent “Odd Thomas” on DVD.  Seriously.  Whether you’re a Dean Koontz fan or not, this is a really well-done movie with lots of action, excellent special effects, and a storyline that will keep you fully engaged.  If you’ve read the book, you will find the movie a faithful adaptation, and if you haven’t read the book, you’ll just enjoy it as a good movie.  Not sure what complications kept it from being released in the theaters, but it certainly had nothing to do with the quality of the product.
