The actors went off the original script; the playwright for “The Producers” is Mel Brooks. The play is also a musical, which contained the original composition done by Mel Brooks, as well. As it turns out, Mel Brooks was also the lyricist of the play. The play was written in 1968 and is representational and Continue reading...

The Red Violin And The Intrinsic Value Of Old Italian Violins Movie Review Samples
The Red Violin chronicles the long and exciting journey of the last violin made by a famous Italian instrument maker. The idea of the "best" violin hand-crafted by a master hundreds of years ago immediately made me think of Antonio Stradivari.

What amazed me is that, both in real life and in the movie, people (often musicians) have Continue reading...

Movie Review On The Sound Of Music - From Play To Film
Adapting a play to film involves a great deal of preparation and selective adaptation - there are unique and distinct differences in format that must be taken into consideration, including elements of style, look and performance.

While these changes result in a substantially different story, it is nonetheless an admirable and spectacle-filled adaptation of the Continue reading...
