The trailer for the long awaited sequel I’d almost forgotten about, Maleficent – Mistress Of Evil just landed.

Starring Angelina Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein and Elle Fanning; director Joachim Rønning’s movie will further explore the complex relationship between Maleficent and Aurora, as they face new threats to the magical land of the Moors…

I’m certainly happy to see Jolie on the big screen again. And as my favourite evil queen of all things.

Cant wait for the visuals and to watch the dynamic between Maleficent and Pfeiffer’s Queen Ingrith.

Juno Temple, Kae Alexander, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Harris Dickinson, Teresa Mahoney, Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville and Sam Riley aslo star.

Maleficent – Mistress Of Evil Release Dates: October 18th, 2019 (US & UK)…

MOTHER! (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Mother!, the Darren Aronofsky directed mystery / horror film about uninvited guests who disrupt a couple’s tranquil existence is a weird movie. 

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, the acting is great of course but what I enjoyed most about the film has nothing to do with acting. As controversial as this is, the beautiful single braid on Lawrence’s head… so effortless and gorgeous. That’s my favourite thing about Mother! 

Part of my issue with Aronofsky’s movie is that I can’t say I fully get it. I found myself getting mad at the close-up shots and about an hour into the film, I was thinking: ‘Resolve this mystery already!’ 

What’s also quite unfortunate about me not really understanding Mother! is that I’m definitely not interested enough to watch it again on the off chance that I may finally get it.

The way Lawrence and Bardem’s characters were so obviously grossly mismatched as a couple rather annoyed me. Bardem’s character’s lack of consideration towards his wife really made me mad and because I didn’t understand why he was being that way, it simply made matters worse.

If you’re an Aronofsky fan, I say give this movie a chance because you may like it. Just remember that Mother! is definitely more mystery than horror, so don’t let the word ‘horror’ dissuade you or get you too excited.

If you think I totally missed the point of this movie, you’re very welcome to enlighten me in the comments below.

Murder On The Orient Express has a very impressive cast list; one that includes, Kenneth Branagh who’s also the film’s director, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad – to name just a few.  Based on Agatha Christie’s famous novel of the same name, this mystery / crime / drama is set on a lavish train ride through Europe. A ride that has thirteen strangers stranded on a train and everyone is a murder. suspect. It’s up to Hercule Poirot (Branagh) to race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again…

The very talented cast, the fashion, cinematography and story are all great reasons to watch this version of Murder On The Orient Express. The filming style teased in this trailer is equally very appealing, along with Hercule Poirot’s accent; particularly the way he says ‘evil.’

Murder On The Orient Express Release Dates: November 3rd, 2017 (UK); November 10th, 2017 (US)…

Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hank Azaria and Alessandro Nivola are the stars of The Wizard Of Lies, an HBO movie about Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme which is also known as the largest  financial fraud in United States history…

Of course I’ll be tuning in. De Niro is as watchable as ever, I’m excited to see Michelle Pfeiffer in a movie again and the story is so very intriguing. Even more so because I didn’t really pay close attention to the news when Madoff was all over it back in 2008.

I’m so ready for a good drama like this.

The Wizard Of Lies is directed by Barry Levinson.

The Wizard Of Lies Release Dates: May 20th, 2017 (HBO)…
