Trailer: Maleficent


Whether you're a fan of Angelina Jolie/Sleeping Beauty or not, you must listen to the haunting rendition of the song by Lana del Rey. When it comes to Jolie movies, I'm a bit apathetic about them, but that doesn't mean I skip out on them. I like Maleficent, and Jolie looks the part - I like to see what she would do with the role. The trailer doesn't give much to work with on that opinion: she's just raising her hands and giving glares and all that. Hopefully she does justice to the role - even if it is based on an animated character.

  1. Definitely looks the part. I'm not really sure how I feel about it as a whole but it is intriguing.

    1. Maleficent is a great villain - she's one of those Disney villains that doesn't lose her cool, and still absolutely stuns even when she turned into a dragon. I hope Jolie does do more than just look the part.

  2. Have to say I'm really excited for this one! Looks like Jolie will be excellent in it.

  3. I'm not a big fan of Lana Del Ray, but I adore her covers of Blue Velvet and Once Upon a Dream, the latter goes perfectly with the new trailer giving it an eerie feeling, which is great!

    1. I'm not familiar with most of her songs, but I can't stop listening to this song. It's really done beautifully and it sets the tone and adds to the atmosphere of the movie.

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
