She's back: New posters were released for the October movie Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil. And in one of them the film's star Angelina Jolie looks menacing with a white face, ruby red lips and a black outfit with her wings and horn in place Jolie looks different this time around from the 2014 original live-action film. She has her wings, which she did not have on during most of the first movie. And she is decorated in what appears to be claws or bird beaks.

So now progressives are furious at Nancy Pelosi for not being more like Newt Gingrich. Yes, the circumstances today are radically different from 1998 in one big way: Donald Trump deserves to be impeached, and Bill Clinton didn’t. But maybe Pelosi recognizes a way in which, for now at least, they’re the same. Back in October 2017, I wrote a column suggesting that it was getting to be time for Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and James Clyburn to move along. If they take back the House in 2018, I wrote, let them have a victory-lap term, and then they should hand the reins to the next generation. Subsequently, during the heat of the election, when “my opponent will vote for Nancy Pelosi” was a GOP heavy-breathing pitch, I ventured here and there that this was a real issue in some of these swing districts, and liberals were wrong to dismiss it as such. On Twitter and among friends, I was mostly told that I was crazy and possibly sexist. Nancy Pelosi, people insisted with … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s Right to Fear Nancy Pelosi. Liberals Are Wrong to Mock Her.
In the hazy beginnings of 2017, the film Get Out debuted and managed to give an entire new twist to the horror genre. The lingering effects of Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, which delivered a black spin on Rosemary’s Baby-esque body horror, are still felt to this day. Get Out was not only nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Director at the 2018 Oscars, but its lead actor Daniel Kaluuya was also nominated for Best Actor. That a genre film could defy tradition with multiple nominations — horror is rarely nominated, save for prestige horror like the aforementioned Rosemary’s Baby,The Exorcist, and Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs—has been one of the season's biggest surprises. It should then not be out of the realm of possibility to expect that Ryan Coogler’s foray into the superhero genre with Black Panther could pull off the same trick. Coogler first dazzled audiences with his harrowing indie film Fruitvale … [Read more...] about Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’: A Dazzling, Superpowered Love Letter to Black People
It took six decades, and 11 years of dedicated development, to bring Patricia Highsmith’s novel Carol (or The Price of Salt) to the screen. The resulting film stars Cate Blanchett as the titular New Jersey housewife who embarks on a tentative love affair with a younger shopgirl (Rooney Mara) in 1950s New York City, with Blanchett’s beguiling turn all but guaranteed to nab her a seventh Academy Award nomination. The tender love story from director Todd Haynes hits theaters just months after the United States Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in America. Still, Blanchett joked to The Daily Beast, “I don’t think this film will be opening the Uganda Film Festival.” Carol might not play so well in Uganda, one of the globe’s most notoriously homophobic countries, but it certainly joins 2013’s Blue Is the Warmest Color in bringing more visibility to the multitudinous shades of gay-themed cinema that makes it onto mainstream Hollywood’s … [Read more...] about Cate Blanchett: ‘I’m Not in Beirut, I’m Not in Paris… Those Are the Real Issues’
Welsh actor Sir Anthony Hopkins—Oscar-winning lion of the screen, three-time BAFTA winner, two-time Emmy winner, the erstwhile Hannibal Lecter, and a bona fide knight of the British Empire to boot—walked out on the theater life over four decades ago in a blaze of glory, quitting his star turn as Macbeth in the middle of his run at the National Theatre. The legendary Laurence Olivier had given the former baker’s son from Glamorgan his break by inviting him into the theater company housed at the Old Vic, the London institution long synonymous with William Shakespeare. But Hopkins, then a younger man, and one who still drank heavily, was restless—a word he still uses to describe himself—and he fled, leaving the stage in his rearview as he dove into movies and gravitated toward Hollywood. So it’s no accident that Hopkins comes full circle in Starz’s The Dresser, a powerful new adaptation of Ronald Harwood’s 1980 backstage play about an aging … [Read more...] about Anthony Hopkins’ Life of Solitude: ‘I Don’t Need People Much’
