Maleficent Poster

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Here is the trailer from FilmDistrict’s upcoming film In the Land of Blood and Honey. The movie is directed by Angelina Jolie, starring Zana Marjanović, Goran Kostić, Rade Šerbedžija, Vanesa Glodjo, Nikola Djurićko.

“In the Land of Blood and Honey” hits theaters December 23rd, 2011.

Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that tore the Balkan region apart in the 1990s, In the Land of Blood and Honey tells the story of Danijel (Goran Kostić) and Ajla (Zana Marjanović), two people from different sides of a brutal ethnic conflict. Danijel, a soldier fighting for the Serbs, and Ajla, a Bosnian held captive in the camp he oversees, knew each other before the war, and could have found love with each other. But as the armed conflict takes hold of their lives, their relationship grows darker, their motives and connection to one another ambiguous, their allegiances uncertain. In the Land of Blood and Honey portrays the incredible emotional, moral and physical toll that the war exerts both on individuals and people as a whole, and the terrible consequences that stem from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict.

Salt Movie Review

Friday, July 23rd, 2010





Who is Salt? It is the most appropriate question and if you’re like me, you’ll be asking that question well into the film. There is intrigue, mystery, motivation, and purpose, but what is her purpose and what exactly is her goal? This action thriller is well done and intense.

Angie is far from losing her touch or her ability to give us a worthy female action character…… READ FULL REVIEW
