I’ll be the first to admit that 2014’s Maleficent wasn’t the movie for me, which is why I expect it’s sequel will also not be to my liking. And that’s perfectly okay because the first movie earned just over $758 million dollars worldwide. In other words, they’re doing just fine without my two cents.
Some movies aren’t made for me, and I understand that though what really needs to sink in is that that doesn’t necessarily mean that a movie is doomed to failure. I learned this rough lesson most recently when I swore to the heavens that Angelina Jolie’s 2014 movie Maleficent would tank at the box office. Over […]
A few months ago I misread that prospects of Disney’s Maleficent, so I have been a bit leery about trying to predict the success of films that I don’t care for (in other words, just because I don’t think much of Angelina Jolie as an actress doesn’t mean that the films she stars in will necessarily […]
Honestly, I have no clue. Sure, I have ideas (and who doesn’t?) though you have to keep in mind that when I wrote that I thought that Robert Stromberg’s Maleficent was doomed to failure a few months ago that my reasoning was, for the most part, based on logic. The “for the most part” is that I don’t […]
Remember when I said that Robert Stromberg’s “Maleficent” is going to fail? I still believe that to be the case, though I have to admit that I like the most recent trailer. In it get a little more information as to why she’s evil, as well as watching her raise an army from what look […]
I don’t know who OK’ed this over at Disney, but, as much as I hate to be the spanner in the works–”Maleficent,” the story of “Sleeping Beauty” from the evil witch’s point of view, isn’t going to work. And so that I am clear, by “isn’t going to work” I mean “lose lots of money.”
They don’t even try anymore, do they? By which I mean to make a special effect the least bit practically (though as sharp as Angelina Jolie‘s cheekbones appear to be, they’re almost a special effect all their own) because I have rarely seen CGI that convinces as much as a real object. I know I […]
The history of women superheroes in comics is a proud one. Female characters are common in Marvel and DC Comics, as well as competing comics companies. So, if women play such a pivotal role in comics, why is it that movies that feature them fail at the box office? One reason is because, when filmmakers […]
