Just saw “Strange Magic”

AL Strange Love

This movie is what would result if “Epic” and “Moulin Rouge” survived a head on collision with George Lucas.

Despite the incredibly detailed modeling and animation there is not much else in this joke of a song-catalog musical. What’s really annoying is that there are little elements of good peppered throughout the film but there isn’t much payoff to them. It also doesn’t help that the established songs used such as “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and “Wild Thing” are more obnoxious than memorable.

“Gnomeo and Juliet” is a much better version of what this was suppose to be in more ways than one; since “Strange Magic” was apparently inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
