Movie Review – Annie (2014)

Shiny, slick Annie remake isn’t a patch on the original; this is a bland, music-video-lite styled affair lacking a genuine villain(ess) or even some manner of tone with which to hang emotional baggage to. The music is bastardized into “modern” production style, the characters lack resonance or even a sense of believability, and Will Gluck’s meandering direction leaves this fruitless remake/reboot/reshuffle to clunk out to musical oblivion within a few minutes of starting. It’s a frickin’ shame, really.
