Maleficent : Mistress of Evil Movie Review

If you haven’t seen Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. You differently want to see it. If you are a fan of the first movie, you will not be disappointed. I bet everyone wants to be there favorite Maleficent character during the Halloween season. Her costume is marvelous as Maleficent, even the cinematography and visual effects were incredible to watch. There are lots of Disney movies that came out this year, and I hope one of them will be nominated for an Oscar in 2020.  

Angelina Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ella Fanning, they captivate the screen, so did Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, and Lesly Manville. Harris Dickinson replacing Breton (from the first film) 

The screenwriter Linda Woolverton wrote the scripts for Ewoks, The Real Ghostbuster, and Ducktales, she also wrote books Starwind and Running Behind the Wind. She wrote the Beauty and the Beast for the film and stage version and co-wrote The Lion King (1994).

The story is, years have gone by Maleficent, and her god-daughter Aurora begins to question the complexity of family ties that bind them. As they pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark forces at play. 

By the way, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is truly magnificent and worth watching. The movie has it all drama, action, and intense scenes. You have to see it to believe it. Don’t believe in the ratings from other websites. Please check it out yourself this weekend. 

The Joker

Wearing my Bat-man t-shirt and watching The Joker movie makes me realize, I did not have a Joker T-shirt. 

Joaquin Phoenix

Joaquin Phoenix is a phenomenal actor, and portraying an evil character as The Joker, makes one realize the mental illness is real. It can drive someone crazy, and we don’t know about it. Think of John Wayne Gracy, a serial killer with a clown, makeup that he murders countless children during the 1980s. 

The story and screen-writers who wrote it are Todd Phillps (screen-writer, producer, & director) and Scott Silver (screen-writer). It was marvelous to put together. They did numerous reshot to get the scenes perfectly done. 

Will they be a sequel? I hope not; this is an origin movie of The Joker of how he became evil in the first place. The Joker has no superpowers. The only thing he can do is steal money and buy expensive items that would harm people, more like a gangster would do. 

The movie itself had a dark undertone. Remember, the film is rated “R” due to graphic images of violence and language. Not suitable for children, only for adults. It has a great storyline that we can relate. 

Will it be an Oscar contender for next year? It may be. Probably for the cinematographer and adapted screenplay. 

They should do more movies of serial killers from the past, and we can learn what drives them crazy to kill. It would be fascinating to learn about their relationships with other people. It’s like the Netflix series Making a Murderer

America Horror Story 1984, they are doing a story on Richard Ramirez, the Nightstalker, this is one to watch. 

Go see it this week!

Hedy Lamarr – The Most Beautiful Woman in Films

Hedy Lamarr

With beauty and brains, Hedy Lamarr has it all. In the 1930s, she married a millionaire by the name of Fritz Mandl. His business was the weapon manufacturing industry. For her, she was young and naive from Vienna, Austria. He wanted her to be a housewife. With beauty and brains, Hedy Lamarr has it all. In the 1930s, she married a millionaire by the name of Fritz Mandl. His business was the weapon manufacturing industry. For her, she was young and naive from Vienna, Austria. He wanted her to be his housewife, and she was bored. She wanted to know more about his business.  Mandl didn’t want his wife to be involved in the industry. Mandl orders his maidservant to keep an eye on her whatever she does. Since the maid looked precisely like her, she put her plan in action. She drugged the maid and took her clothes and walked out of the house. Even though Mandl has guards posted in every corner, the guards did not even notice that was Hedy Lamarr escaped, and no one knew where she had gone. 

When she escaped, she wanted to be an actress, her original name was Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, but when she moved to Hollywood, she changed to Hedy Lamarr. Her big blockbuster movie was Ecstasy in which it grossed over a million dollars in sales and rentals on DVD. She was the first to do non-pornographic films and the first to fake an orgasm on film. This was before Harry met Sally (1989). She swam nude in a lake, and a horse took off her clothes. The horse came back with a young man, and she did it to him. 

The head of MGM Louis B. Mayer signed her a movie contract, and she worked with leading actors such as Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, and Jimmy Steward. Movies such as John Steinbeck’s Tortilla Flat (1942), White Cargo (1942) Cecil B DeMille’s Samson and Delilah (1949) and the last movie she did was The Female Animal (1958) 

The inventor

She already has the beauty, but she was brilliant too. She met George Antheil, composer and piano player. If a piano can play itself while hopping one note at a time. What about frequencies. The frequencies between transmitter and receivers can be steer, but it will be difficult to detect by enemies. If the enemy wants to fire at us, their signal will be blocked and exploded in the middle of the ocean with another torpedo. This was a new invention by Hedy Lamarr. She accidentally discovered GPS and Wifi, that is widely used today.

If Hollywood made a movie about her, this would be interesting to watch.

Bella Thorne: Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray

People surely like to put labels on people to assume that who they are, that’s a total of a misconception of people of who they don’t know, it’s like fake news for celebrities.  What people have to know is that we are people too and they have lives, and they are busy moving forward in their lives. 

When Keke Palmer, Strahan and Sara show, interview Bella Thorne 21, and Disney Channel hit show “Shake it Up,” their conservation was indeed down to earth and having mocktails. It was a non-alcoholic drink.  

“If you spend your whole life, you’ve been raised to only please people, then how do you know, why do you think, ‘Oh, these child stars are going crazy,’” she said. “But they finally get to please themselves for once or ask themselves what does please me? Because I don’t even know at this point.”

And the spotlight strained her relationship with her mother, Tamara.

“I wanted acceptance,” the “Shake It Up” alum explained while referencing the lack of structure during her childhood. “I wanted appreciation and love for who I was, the way I looked, to everything about myself that I didn’t ever feel like I got.”

She added, “I wanted an education. I wanted to feel like I could speak, I wanted a lot of things. But I never spoke up so you can only blame people around you so much before obviously, you start blaming yourself.”

Bella Thorne is an author, actor, producing and directing short videos for other clients. She has tremendous talent.  In each of these, Bella has educated herself to be a better person. She doesn’t want to look back on what she has done in the past. Bella wants to move forward and be better in her craft. 


Bella Thorne has written a new book called: Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray, it’s a collection of poems and stories. It’s very interesting to read. Go check it out and add to your collection.
