Prince Charming: A Campy Fun Fairy Tale

So, I was considering doing this for a Nostalgia Nook as it came out in 2001. But I only watched it recently and wanted to save my Nostalgia Nooks for things that actually make me nostalgic. Since I post my Once Upon a Time recaps here and this does feature a cast member, I suppose this counts.

(I apologize for the quality of the screen caps. They're taken from YouTube.)

Rest in Peace

Former Top Model contestant Mirjana Puhar Dead in Triple Homicide

Mirjana is remembered by Top Model cast and creatives

It's a tragedy. I know I wasn't too fond of Mirjana on the show, but I thought she had a great career ahead of her. She just needed more life experiences. Too bad her life was cut short.

God speed.

Nostalgia Nook: Shakespeare in Love

Confession time! I only just watched Shakespeare in Love. It seems odd that it took me this long, too. After all, the movie has many things I like: history, romance, Shakespeare…But it wasn’t until I got Netflix that I finally was able to watch it. So what did I think of the surprise 1998 Oscar winner? Let’s find out! 

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou SPOILERS!

“Into the Woods”: Fractured Fairy Tales

Once Upon a Time, in a far off kingdom lived a sad young woman, a lonely lad named Jack and a childless baker with his wife.

This is “Into the Woods,” Stephen Sondheim’s musical about fairy tales. Disney and Rob Marshall have brought it to the big screen, working with Sondheim and James Lapine. And being a musical theater geek, of course I saw it.

I had some hesitation when I saw Disney was going to produce the film. Since I was familiar with the stage show, I knew there was a chance it was going to be changed to fit more with the Disney tone. Especially when fairy tales are so synonymous with “Walt Disney.” But it wasn’t as bad as I had initially feared. In fact, it was still very good.

Into the SPOILERS!

Galavant: It’s Ain’t Over…

With the fight still on, Galavant decides to talk to Richard. Gareth agrees to take him to the king. This should be interesting.

(Spoiler alert: It won't happen)
So Galavant goes into Richard’s room and asks if they can get something to drink. Gareth says that the king needs his rest since they have to fight in the morning. He goes to get some rest…and then Richard sneaks out with Galavant to head to a pub for some alcohol.

Galavant: An Interrupted Moment

Last week on “Galavant:” Our singing heroes reached Valencia’s shores and took a break at the Monastery of the Brothers of Our Father of Perpetual Singing, led by Brother Weird Al. Isabella was racked with guilt over having to lead Galavant into a trap while Richard was giddy over the prospect of capturing Galavant at last. Magdalena decided to take matters into her own hands. And Chef was in love. But he had to stand up his lady love when Magdalena switched him for Galavant on the gallows. She offers Galavant a chance to live in the palace as her boy toy but he refuses, seeing her for what she is. He also starts to see Isabella in a new light as those in the dungeons plot. Richard goes with Chef to see Ricky Gervais and realizes his insecurities stem from his brother, Kingsley. And guess who Magdalena has summoned? Kingsley!

Things are heating up for this finale!
