Angelina Jolie is feeling evil as Malificent

Angelina Jolie has a love for the, well, complicated ladies.  Evelyn Salt (glad to see there’s a Salt 2 in the mix), The Tourist‘s Elise, Grendel’s momma in Beowulf, and of course her Oscar-winning turn as Lisa in Girl, Interrupted.  She’s upping the evil as Sleeping Beauty’s nemesis in Malificent.

Gotta say that I was amazed and scared pantsless by this particular witchy queen.  Best evil hairdo ever?  yeah, you better believe it.  Plus, she could transform into one badass dragon; that’s pretty top-notch.

Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast 3D

Can you believe it’s been over 20 years since Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was first released?  On the one hand, over these years it’s become a timeless classic.  But to me it also feels like it was just last week I first saw Belle and her Beast on the big screen.

Oh wait.  It WAS last week.  But this time I saw them in 3D, with the Beauty and the Beast 3D release.  And lemme tell you, fans of this movie that wonder if they should shell the hard-earned for this version…yes, you should.  It’s a totally new way to see the film, and it’s a wonderful use of 3D.  Plus hey, tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme.  You know the drill.
