What it’s about: In this very Epic-like movie, the forest is divided into good and evil and is inhabited by goblins and fairies. There’s a magic love potion that causes good and evil to come together — which obviously doesn’t start off very well. With big-name actors like Maya Rudolph, Kristin Chenoweth and Evan Rachel Wood on voiceover duty, there’s a good dose of quality thrown into Strange Magic.
What Miss Q said: “The music is amazing, and the fairies are so beautiful. I wish I could fly through that forest.”
The verdict? The music is really good overall. Each song is a cover of one you know, both new and old, and some arrangements are better than others. Some voices are better than others, too, but most of the time, it’s easy on the ears. As always, it’s easy to pick out Kristin Chenoweth’s cherubic sound — which I could listen to for days. The story itself is quite nice, but nothing that’s going to blow you away if you watch it with your child.
