    JR and his partner are actually decent directors it’s just POTC 5 was a crapfest. I don’t think it was the direction but moreso the script and it’s lead the critics went after.

  • Malf

    Huh… Angie is so broke that she has to say yes to both Mal2 & BOF? Nope, not going to believe it without receipts. 🤣🤔

  • Beezers

    I doubt that anything Angie does from now own will make as much money as in the past.

  • toastie postie

    I hope so. I never heard of him and I stopped watching the Pirate movies. I think I barely watched the one with Penelope Cruz in it.

  • Malf

    OT: I have to laugh at headlines about Hyena laugh Roberts admitting she was a brat in her glory days. I’m shocked & the world is shocked… NOT. I can’t with her.

    I personally loved POTC 5 enough to go see it a second time.

    I just saw that. She’s such a over rated b….. I don’t watch any of her movies.

  • Malf

    My bad… honestly, my thoughts when I saw the quote were.. Hyena.. you’re still a beyotch but just an older one now who can’t blame it on youth anymore. 😂🤣😄

  • toastie postie

    Hi, Lyric. Glad to know you are feeling a little better. Take care of yourself.😘

  • Malf

    OT: I’m late to the party but am I the only person who doesn’t give a shite about 4 Avatar sequels?! I liked the original Avatar and I even have the blu-ray but it hasn’t aged well. The special effects were great but the story was thin.

    James Cameron needs to STFU about Wonder Woman. Dude, we get it…you think you’re the da bomb but no need to mouth about WW. Were WW’s outfit skimpy?…yep, but damn it was a fun movie!

    Definitely, be watching Maleficent 2.

    Hoping for the best but it won’t be easy for FTKMF to even make the short list of 9 given the sheer number of films. It’s a good thing though that Netflix is scheduling more screenings.

  • toastie postie

    And the competition looks stiff.

  • hotmesss

    Yes it’s stiff but it seems FTKMF is being predicted by some to make it due to the achievement and scale of the film. I know for sure Foxtrot and BPM120 will make it. Just wish the selection were a wider number of films and then with it being Netflix sigh…

    Late again, not unusual.

    So, the director of Piece of Crap no. 5 is being courted for Mal2?

    I hope they got that script together.

    I know they supposedly are aiming for early 2018 filming, but I have a couple of questions:

    1. Where does that leave Oscar campaigning? Ballot aren’t due until Feb. 27th.

    2. Angie talked about filming in London. But, London weather in winter with outdoor filming?

  • toastie postie

    I don’t think she will start until after Awards season. Too much to do and go to if her film is nominated for any awards.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Now this Bride thing.

    I don’t see it happening. It’s not a stand alone film. She’ll be expected to appear in other films in this whole Universe as well.

    I would think that invites too much uncertainty in terms of her future planning for other work and other aspects of her life.

    Unless Bride films first. And they are already in preproduction so they are going in February.

    And Mal2 gets pushed back to close to the end of next year?

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Yeah, that’s what I would think too.

    And that London weather …

    Netflix is going to want her available throughout the season I would think.

    By the way, so happy to see that Dee is onto her next project.

    The woman are doing it.

    I want to see a roundtable of all female directors.

    Angie, Dee, Gerta, Patty …

    How powerful and inspiring would that be?

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    And thanks TP for bringing that list of additional screening.

    Wow. I lost count of how many.

    I didn’t see anything that indicated that Angie would be appearing at any of these.

  • toastie postie

    Yes!

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    And about those submissions for the Foreign language catergory, I ‘ve said before that getting the nod in that category may be harder than people may think.

    So, Netflix should definitely also make that run for one of the ten slots for best picture.

  • toastie postie

    You are welcome. Perhaps one or two she might go to if she is in CA at the time. Who knows if there will be any others added.

  • toastie postie

    So many! The competition is stiff in that category – the movie is not a shoo-in.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    That’s what I’m saying. So, I hope Netflix is not just focused on that category

  • toastie postie

    Throw the bum out! I couldn’t believe it when I saw the picture – what the….
    WH also said no, the people could not use food stamps for fast food. Then changed mind when there was an uproar. He has had to be shamed into doing anything. Then telling people without power to have fun?

    It was sickening. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the picture. Where is the outcry from the higher ups, if this had been…no wait…Hillary and Obama would never had done such a despicable act. I’m hungry, I’m thirty, no water – here have some paper towels and go clean up the mess you made. How was he allowed out. Someone said they should have thrown it back – but you know Secret Service would have got them and he would have said they were ungrateful. He knew what he was doing and loved it, knowing he could get away with it.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Because people of color aren’t real people.

    They are only to be tolerated if they can’t be discarded or disregarded.

    And nothing in the world truly matters except what will make him feel good about himself.

  • toastie postie

    I want to puke. Hes a raging evil, moron in dementia. Mueller hurry up!!! Then it’s Pence!!! He needs gone – even more evil if possible.

  • Felinelilly

    That cow dung brained, worthless piece of shit you’ve got leading your country, has a special place in hell waiting for him with his name already carved on it.
    I really am dumbfounded as to how in the world he could ever be elected. But then Macron will be Drumpf in 40 years. He already calls himself Jupiter so he’s well on his way. Care about no one but themselves. Priviledged, ignorant assholes.

  • toastie postie

    Bummer. Sorry to hear that. But hopefully he will be gone out of office, before he becomes another Dumpster. Scary, messed up world we are living in and I’ve got it very easy, compared to those suffering physically under evil tyrants. I miss a decent, classy president!

    al fin termine de leer los antiguos comentarios.

    Estoy en la minoría pero creo que Angelina seria una fantástica novia Frankenstein .y estoy contenta de verla nuevamente en Malefica..estamos muy pobres en la siembra y cosecha de películas con Angi en pantalla asi que me pongo feliz de mirarla en dos super producciones…que se yo..

  • Felinelilly

    Oh he will be gone, and hopefully Drumpf will soon be too. But it doesn’t keep those two self involved BFFs from doing damage in the meantime.

  • Lylian

    Just catching up. Bringing ring gate over from older thread:

    I’m predicting that Angie’s wearing the ring that Brad Pitt her still Husband gave her on the left hand because it’s not a done deal that they are reconciling. She will shift it to the right hand when it’s a done deal – or else she put it in the box and send it back to Brad with a card that reads:

    “Guess what’s in the box??”

    (Ok I know. Sick joke.)

  • Lylian

    SAw PTs video of Elizabeth Warren. Damn if she did doesn’t have great staff to support her.

    Makes me wonder what the hell orher senators are doing ya know?

  • Lylian

    If MAL 2 script is what was written a few weeks ago then :

    NOOOOOOOO! Wrong movie!

    As for this Joachim Ronning- never heard of him. Didn’t see POTC, dead man, but what else has he done and unless it’s some othe block busters why does he get to direct a $150m moviecomoared with other female directors.

  • Christina

    Hay muchos comentarios aquí, lo hiciste bien.

    Usted no está solo en su estatus de minoroty, creo que con el guión correcto que es capaz de hacer bien en lo que toca. Espero verla en pantalla también. !¿plantaciòn y cosecha? Me gusta mucho eso, gran manera de verlo.

    Espero que google translate sea correcto 😂
