Dreamgirls and Charlotte's Web Soundtrack Reviews

The Christmas season means good friends, good food and a bunch of cool new movies! We take a look at some of the newest soundtracks to hit the shelves: Dreamgirls and Charlotte's Web.

Dreamgirls Soundtrack

The movie Dreamgirls is a musical so its success or failure weighs pretty heavily on having a good soundtrack. The near-deafening Oscar buzz surrounding this flick stands as a testament to what a killer soundtrack it has. American Idol's Jennifer Hudson steals both the film and the soundtrack and Beyonce Knowles' consistently delivers the goods, for her part. This is a must-have album for any Dreamgirls fan.

Dreamgirls Soundtrack - Fun Facts

  • The Dreamgirls movie is based on the Broadway musical of the same name.
  • The soundtrack has been released two versions: a single-disc standard release and a two-disc deluxe edition.

Dreamgirls Soundtrack Rating:

Charlotte's Web Soundtrack

The Charlotte's Web soundtrack successfully seeks to reflect the simple, rustic vibe of the motion picture. Highlights include Sarah McLachlan's Ordinary Miracle, as well as songs from Amy Grant and Billy Ray Cyrus. The original score is fairly quiet and reflective, rather than music to shake your booty to. It's sweet, simple and thoughtful. Just like Wilbur himself.

Charlotte's Web Soundtrack - Fun Facts

  • Composer Danny Elfman left Spider-Man 3 to work on this film
  • Ordinary Miracle was written by Glen Ballard and David Stewart of The Eurythmics.
  • Charlotte's Web composer Danny Elfman is Dharma & Greg star Jenna Elfman's uncle through marriage.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
