No idea when I'm going, to be honest. Daughter wants to go, like, now, but we are still housing a family that lost their home less than a week ago and trying to help them find a new place to live, so, things are a little crazy at Rancho Bolvar this weekend.

The movie looked pretty interesting. I just hope it isn't like Snow White and the Hunstmen where it LOOKS like it'll be some cool dark fantasy but is really just lazy.

This is part of my concern. I'm also not at all sold on Jolie, she gets far too much credit as an actress and, in my opinion, isn't all that she's cracked up to be.

That said, the pics I've seen, she does capture the look rather well. So, eh.

Edit: Hehe, quick Wiki search and:

Quote:
Angelina Jolie's performance in the film was repeatedly singled out for praise by critics. Betsy Sharkey of The Los Angeles Times gave the film a positive review, writing "This is Jolie's film because of the Maleficent she makes. Everyone else, even Aurora, fades in her presence."[37] Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post awarded the film three-and-a-half out of four stars, commenting that "Still, for all its limitations, "Maleficent" manages to be improbably entertaining to watch, due solely to its title character."[38] Daniel M. Kimmel gave the film four stars out of five, declaring that the film "rides on the strength of Angelina Jolie's performance and she is, in a word, magnificent."
So, maybe I'm being unfair to her.

I read spoilers about literally the entire plot. Maleficent, turns out, was the good guy all along and the king is the real villain.

Don't run into a serial killer and shoot him with a paintball.

I get the feeling that what they're expecting is for you to be timid and hang back and play super defensively.

So what you need to do is Rambo that shit. Dual wield paint-guns and run out into the field screaming like a psychotic killer while barraging their position with your weapons. If you get hit ignore it, and if they try to claim you're out say that nobody ever truly gets out of war.

Fill up a balloon with paint, and if they come at you yell "grenade!" and hurl it at them.

It's fun. Expect some welts, though. Doesn't hurt too bad.


And your clothes aren't likely to be ruined; it'll probably be water-based paint, which I get off just swimming in a lake afterwards fully clothed.

I thought you were a military brat.

Just pretend that you're in Iraq but without the suicidal depression that comes after.

Holy shit was Maleficent an awful movie. Like, it wasn't bad enough that it was absolutely nothing like Sleeping Beauty - and it wasn't, the changes done made no sense - but the writing, pacing, and acting were all pretty bad on their own.

She never even turned into a dragon. Why would you remove Maleficent's dragon? That's what she does, she turns into a dragon!

I was told to make the most convincing music review I could possibly write, so here it is:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...K7-TcdecQ/edit

Going by the writing would you want to listen to the album? And yes it was allowed to be informal.

Flay them alive with a butter knife and disguise yourself as one of them by wearing their skin as a suit. It's full proof, they will never suspect your paintball victory from one of their own team mates!

I hear they whitewashed it. She isn't really a villain anymore, just "misunderstood"! Ugh.

Do the Redridge Mountains quests. Or watch all the Rambo movies. Or both. They're pretty much the same thing. Roleplay as John Rambo. Or John J. Keeshawn. Or both. Victory is assured.

Unrelated, but awesome:

Yes.

The only remotely evil thing she does is curse Aurora, only this time it's a curse of sleep from the very beginning instead of a death curse that the good fairies have to reverse. Absolutely nothing that made Maleficent Maleficent was kept. King Stefan was a better villain than her in this, and he wasn't even a very good villain either.

True love's kiss to wake Aurora up was Maleficent kissing her on the forehead. Prince Philip was in the movie for like 10 minutes and literally pointless.

I just don't understand why they needed to give this the Wicked approach. I really don't. You can have sympathetic villains without making them "misunderstood with a heart of gold" and making the real good guys actually complete scumbags like they did to Stefan. Maleficent is already one of Disney's most popular villains, perhaps the most popular. These changes weren't necessary to make her movie sell.

What's so hard about simply doing Sleeping Beauty from Maleficent's point of view? Why couldn't we have this scene be the ending of the movie and have it be a sad, tragic moment where the main character dies?

Yes, I'm mad.



Although I did like Diaval I have to admit that.
