The Trailer For Disney's New 'Tangled' Series Looks Amazing
Huffington Post - about 1 month
We can probably all agree that “Tangled” is one of Disney’s best animated movies from the past decade. Well, the Disney Channel is releasing an entire original cartoon series called “Tangled: Ever After” in March to keep the story going for fans of the movie. From the looks of the trailer, the new show will include plenty of action-packed fun, including Eugene’s infamous smolder, and even Pascal and Maximus. What’s not to love? Some fans are torn because this “Tangled” sequel is a made-for-TV cartoon, rather than an animated blockbuster hit like its original. But if it’s any consolation, at least Mandy Moore will still be voicing Rapunzel and the trailer looks very promising. We have no doubt this show will be all the rage when it premieres.

Denver Film Festival Preview: Welcome to the La La Land of Opportunity
Huffington Post - 4 months
Tracy and Hepburn. Bogie and Bergman. Fred and Ginger. Liz and Dick. Butch and Sundance. Thelma and Louise. Sebastian and Mia? Finding the rare perfect pair with the golden touch on the silver screen -- in the guise of a real-life sustainable couple, a one-off character study or two actors who continue to play it again -- can be either an exhilarating or exasperating experience. Just like watching a doubleheader or double feature, both always aren't a winning combination. Whether it involves BFFs or best frenemies, a dynamic duo or an old-fashioned romantic couple, there has to be a chemical attraction/reaction between the two lead actors to make us want to believe in them. The 39th Denver Film Festival gets off on the right foot in that department this week with its Red Carpet presentation of La La Land, a modern take on the Hollywood musical that pays homage to the City of Angels, matches made in movie heaven and anyone else who dares to dream another day.

    That same year, Moore co-starred in the romantic comedy License to Wed opposite Robin Williams and John Krasinski which was released on July 3, 2007.
    More Details Hide Details Critical reaction to the film was overwhelmingly negative. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 7% rating and a critical consensus of "broad and formulaic". Metacritic.com rated it 25 out of 100, citing 21 generally negative reviews out of 30 for its rating. It was reviewed in Variety as "an astonishingly flat romantic comedy, filled with perplexing choices." The film grossed $10,422,258 in its opening weekend opening at #4 at the U.S. Box Office behind Live Free or Die Hard, Ratatouille, and Transformers, which opened at the top spot. License to Wed had grossed $43.8 million domestically and $69.3 million worldwide. Nevertheless, Variety described Moore's performance as "appealing."
  • 2006
    Age 21
    Moore, citing her conservative upbringing, has expressed dissatisfaction with her appearance on a May 2006 cover of Cosmopolitan; the magazine's headline is "orgasms unlimited", which refers to an article unrelated to her. Afterwards, Moore co-starred in the romantic comedy Because I Said So opposite Diane Keaton. In the film, Moore's character describes in detail the feeling of an orgasm to her mother (Keaton). The film was released on February 2, 2007, receiving mixed reviews, but was a financial success, earning over $69 million worldwide at the box office.
    More Details Hide Details
    Moore stayed alone in a house in Woodstock in Upstate New York while recording the album in late 2006.
    More Details Hide Details
    Moore had signed to Sire Records after her contract with Epic ended, but she left the company in May 2006.
    More Details Hide Details She signed with a new EMI Music-owned record company, The Firm, in July that year, describing her new contract as "especially exciting", and adding that she left Sire because she did not want to "follow the mainstream", but rather have "complete control and freedom" over her work. Wild Hope was released on June 19, 2007, and includes collaborations with artists Chantal Kreviazuk, Rachael Yamagata, Lori McKenna and The Weepies.
    In early 2006, Moore stated that she missed her music career and that singing is what she was the "most passionate about."
    More Details Hide Details
    Moore also said that she "would give a refund to everyone who bought my first two albums" if she could; during a radio interview in April 2006, the show's co-host—who had seen her comments—asked her for a refund on the first album, a request that Moore fulfilled.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2006, Moore commented on her early albums, noting that although she believed that her first album was appropriate for her age at the time when she released it, she felt it "sucked" and that her first albums were "just awful."
    More Details Hide Details
    Later that year, in what ComingSoon.net's review described as a "surprisingly good performance", Moore voiced Nita, the heroine of the Disney animated sequel Brother Bear 2, which was released directly-to-DVD on August 29, 2006.
    More Details Hide Details That same year, she was originally cast in Emilio Estevez's drama Bobby, but was replaced by Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
    Moore also co-starred opposite Hugh Grant, Dennis Quaid and William Dafoe in Paul Weitz's satirical comedy American Dreamz, which was released in April 2006.
    More Details Hide Details In the film, she played a deranged contestant on a television series modelled after American Idol. Weitz stated that he had Moore in mind for the role before she was cast, explaining that "there's something inherently sweet about Mandy; it makes it all the more interesting to see her in a villainess role". Moore has said that she enjoys playing mean-spirited characters but fears being typecast as a villain. American Dreamz opened at number nine at the U.S. box office, eventually totaling barely $7 million, and received mixed reviews; critic Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly, however, wrote that Moore and Grant have a "wicked barbed chemistry" in their roles, while Varietys Robert Koehler said Moore's role was a "pitch-perfect study of a woman for whom a reality show is reality".
    In 2006, Moore guest-starred as Julie Quinn in two episodes of the fifth season of the NBC medical sitcom Scrubs that were the ninth episode "My Half-Acre" and the tenth episode "Her Story II".
    More Details Hide Details The same year, she lent her voice to The Simpsons as Tabitha Vixx in the episode "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play".

    Later in 2004, Moore co-starred in the religion satirical comedy-drama Saved! opposite Jena Malone, Macaulay Culkin and Patrick Fugit where she played Hilary Faye Stockard, a proper and popular girl at a Christian school.
    More Details Hide Details The film received positive reviews, though it did not receive a wide release. Moore received praise for her performance, with one critic calling her a "demented delight" and another naming it her best performance to date. She sang a cover version of The Beach Boys' 1966 hit song "God Only Knows", with Michael Stipe, that bookended the movie.
    In 2004, Moore co-starred in the romantic comedy Chasing Liberty opposite Matthew Goode, where she played the rebellious eighteen-year-old first daughter who desires more freedom.
    More Details Hide Details The film grossed approximately $12 million. Both films received negative and lukewarm reviews respectively; however, Ebert once again singled Moore's performances out, noting in his review of How to Deal that Moore has "an unaffected natural charm" and "almost makes the movie worth seeing", and adding in his Chasing Liberty review that she has "undeniable screen presence and inspires instant affection." Other critics described her as an "actress of limited range", though one review of Chasing Liberty noted that she was the "most painless of former pop princesses."

    It is Moore's third-highest debuting album, falling short of her 2003 album Coverage, which debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 59,000 copies.
    More Details Hide Details Her album also reached No. 9 on The Top Internet albums. After five weeks, Wild Hope charted off the Billboard 200; however, it returned to the chart at No. 118 after selling 5,500 copies. To date, Wild Hope has sold over 120,000 copies in the United States and more than 350,000 copies worldwide. On February 23, 2008, Moore released Wild Hope in Australia, and subsequently toured with Ben Lee and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in Western Australia, supporting Kelly Clarkson on her tour. In October 2008, Moore posted on her website blog live videos of three new songs she had been working on, along with singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist Mike Viola. It was at first expected to be a duo album between the two, but then in January 2009, it was revealed it would be a solo album with a collaboration with him, slated for release in April 2009.
    In 2003, Moore co-starred in the romantic comedy-drama How to Deal opposite Allison Janney and Trent Ford, based on Sarah Dessen's novels That Summer and Someone like You.
    More Details Hide Details She played a cynical seventeen-year-old who deals with falling in love and issues with her family and friends. The film failed to draw in teenage audiences in the U.S. and grossed a total of $14 million domestically.
    By 2003, work on Moore's fourth studio album had begun, later revealed to be a cover album titled Coverage.
    More Details Hide Details The album consisted of covers of songs released throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The album's lead single, a cover of John Hiatt's 1987 song "Have a Little Faith in Me", was released shortly before the album, but failed to enter any charts. Coverage was released on October 21, 2003. Allmusic characterized the album as a "leap to musical maturity" while Entertainment Weekly referred to it as perhaps an "effort to shed her bubblegum-blond image". The album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200 chart, with first week sales of 53,000. This made it Moore's highest debut on the chart, and highest peaking album to date. Despite being her highest charting album, it is her lowest selling, being her first album to fail to be certified by the RIAA. The second single, a cover of XTC's 1982 song "Senses Working Overtime", failed to have any chart success. Moore's cover of Carole King's 1971 song "I Feel the Earth Move" appeared on Love Rocks, a compilation album from gay rights supporters. Due to creative differences between Moore and Epic, she parted ways with the label. Moore and the company released her greatest hits album, The Best of Mandy Moore, in November 2004 as a final obligation to Moore's contract. The album, which featured no new material, reached number 148 on the Billboard 200. Another compilation, Candy, followed in 2005.

    Moore released her second official studio album, I Wanna Be with You, on May 9, 2000.
    More Details Hide Details The album featured the lead single as well as songs from Moore's previous album, So Real. I Wanna Be with You served as Moore's debut album in numerous countries. The album was criticized on the basis that it was a remix album and not a true follow-up, with Allmusic accusing its style of being "trashier, flashier, gaudier, and altogether more disposable" than that of So Real. The album was a commercial success, debuting and peaking at number 21 on the US Billboard 200 chart. It went on to receive a Gold certification from the RIAA, for sales exceeding 500,000 copies in the US alone.
    Before promotion for So Real had even ended, Moore had already begun working on new material. Moore released the lead single from her upcoming project, titled "I Wanna Be with You", on July 11, 2000.
    More Details Hide Details The song became her first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 since her debut single, "Candy". "I Wanna Be with You" spent 16 weeks on the chart and reached its peak of 24 during its ninth week on the chart. The song became her first Top 20 hit on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, where it peaked at number 11. The single also became Moore's second Top 20 hit in Australia, where it peaked at number 13. It was also a minor success on the German Media Control Charts, where it peaked at number 70. Billboard praised the song and said, "Top 40 programmers and listeners alike will love Moore more with this track", while Allmusic chose the song as a highlight track from the album.

    Age 14
    Moore's debut album, So Real, was released on December 7, 1999 by 550 Music through Epic Records.
    More Details Hide Details The album received a limited release in only a few countries. It received mixed critical reviews upon its release, and continued to fuel similarities between Moore and other teen pop singers. Allmusic said of the album "Fifteen-year-old Mandy Moore's debut album sounded like it was inspired almost entirely by listening to recent hit albums by 'N Sync, the Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears." Entertainment Weekly had a similar opinion about the album, and went on to give it a C- in their review. So Real debuted at number 77 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album eventually continued to climb the chart until peaking at number 31. So Real went on to receive a Platinum certification from the RIAA, for sales exceeding one million copies in the US alone. Moore released her second single, "Walk Me Home", the same day as the album. The single failed to match the success of its predecessor, failing to appear on any major charts. It did, however, peak at number 38 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart in the US. The third and final single, title track "So Real", was released exclusively in certain territories on June 13, 2000. The single was not released in the US, but was released in territories such as Japan. In Australia, the single became her second Top 40 hit, peaking at number 21 on the ARIA Charts.
    Moore released her debut single, "Candy", on August 17, 1999 in the United States.
    More Details Hide Details The single, which immediately drew comparison to fellow teen pop singers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, was a commercial success in numerous countries. It debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100, before reaching a peak of number 41 on the chart. The single would later receive a Gold certification from the RIAA, for sales exceeding 500,000 copies in the US.

    In the summer of 1999, Moore began touring with pop band NSYNC.
    More Details Hide Details Later that year, Moore also toured with the Backstreet Boys.
    After signing with Epic Records, she released her first album, So Real, in 1999.

After revealing her displeasure with her early works, Moore's self-titled third album, Mandy Moore (2001), featured a change of sound that drifted away from her "bubblegum pop" roots. The album spawned the single "In My Pocket", which became her third Top 20 song in Australia. The album itself was her final album to be certified by the RIAA, receiving a Gold certification. In 2003, Moore released her fourth studio album, Coverage, featuring covers of classic 1970s songs. Following the album's release, Moore parted ways with Epic due to creative differences.

Moore did not return to music until the release of her 2007 album Wild Hope, which failed to have much success.
