Is Angelina Jolie a closet conservative??? She seems to be hiding it from the public so I say yes…

I know it always seems like that Angie is a die hard liberal over the years but is she really? After her last two directed films, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and “Unbroken”, I’m starting to see the conservative views in her. Maybe she’s finally coming out of the “right-wing” closet? I knew she couldn’t have been a liberal ’cause she grew up in a conservative family especially her father, Jon Voight who is openly “conservative”.

I know there are too many liberal celebs out there but I don’t think she’s one of them. Why are some celebs so scared to admit they’re conservative? They hid their conservative views to save their careers. If they openly admitted they are conservative, they could lose respect and lose their fans. They would get looked at as a crazed “right-winger”… just ask Ted Nugent, Donald Trump and actor James Woods.

I don’t think Angie is a liberal, she can’t be. Maybe she still is but maybe she’s being more sympathetic to the conservative community.

Honestly, though, I don’t care what her political views are ’cause I’ve always been a fan of her work over the years.

Film Review: “Unbroken”…

Starring: Jack O’ Connell, Domhall Gleason
Directed by: Angelina Jolie

Earlier today, I’ve just seen the Angelina Jolie directed WWII film, “Unbroken” which is about the real life POW war vet, Louis Zamperini. Here is my review:

Plot/synopsis: An Olypmian track runner named Louis Zamperini was deployed to fight in a plane during World War II but he ended up getting stuck on a raft for 47 days in the Pacific ocean after the plane was shot down. Then later he was captured by the Japanese and sent to Japanese prison camps.

I know this film is gonna get a lot of criticism ’cause it’s directed by Angie and I know she’s not everyone’s favorite person but I loved her for a long time and still do. I’ve supported her work for years and for a long time now, I had a feeling that she was gonna turn into a director someday and she’s making her directing dreams come true. One thing to keep in mind, though that this isn’t her directorial debut. Her film, “In the Land of Blood & Honey” was her directorial debut. “Unbroken” was her second directorial film.

I thought “Unbroken” was really really good. It was a pretty powerful and sad film. It kind of had the same feelings of “In The Land of Blood & Honey” which was also a great film. I thought Jack O’ Connell was perfect to play a young Louis ’cause him and the real Louis look almost exactly alike if you google the pics.

I thought Angie did a great job with her directing style. The camera work was very well done and the cinematography was well done too. Angie seems to know what she’s doing. Even if she haven’t had much directing experience in the past, I’m pretty sure she learned how to direct by acting in movies over the years of her career. She spent most of her life acting in film and I’m sure she learned directing just by watching other directors. I’m sure other directors taught her some stuff as well. It seemed like she took this movie seriously and definitely seemed like she knew what she was doing.

The script was well-written too, in my opinion as the Coen Brothers helped write the script. 4 people wrote the script to this movie and the Coen Bros. helped them out.

I thought the acting of the entire cast was well played and was impressed with Domhall Gleason (who’s one of the cast members of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

The torture scenes in the film can get quite graphic and disturbing, though. The torture was the whole point of the movie ’cause without the torture, it wouldn’t work. I haven’t read the book which the film is based on but maybe I should read the book pretty soon.

After watching, “In the Land of Blood & Honey” and this film here, I think Angie is gonna be a great director. She already is a great director and she has a huge directing career ahead of her. I’m actually glad that she wants to move on from acting and start directing. I thought she did a great job.

I’m sure people are gonna accuse her of chasing an Oscar for this film but I don’t think so. She wanted to bring America’s attention of what Louis went through and to show that he was an American war hero. It’s a pretty important and serious film that should be seen by all Americans. It wasn’t really made for your popcorn entertainment. If you’re expecting, “Black Hawk Down” or the “Hurt Locker”, look else where. This isn’t that kind of war movie.

I’ll give “Unbroken” a score of 5 out of 5 as in “excellent”.

Angelina Jolie thinking about retiring from acting doesn’t surprise me…

… but I completely understand why she wants to do it.

Just like Drew Barrymore, Angie have been acting in films ever since she was a child. Angie was 7 when she got her first film role in “Lookin’ To Get Out” in 1982. She’s been acting in film ever since. As a long time Angie fan, I’ve been watching her films ever since before everyone knew who she was. I’ve followed her career for a long time and watched most of her filmography. Even back in the old days when she starred in films like: “Cyborg 2”, “Hackers”, “Foxfire”, “Gia”, “Pushing Tin”, “Girl, Interrupted”, etc.

I can’t blame her for wanting to hang it up and try some directing.

I’ve watched her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” on Netflix and it was a powerful film. She did a great job in her first directed movie.

I’ve loved Angelina for a long time and still do. She was smokin’ hot back in the day and she still is hot. I’m gonna miss seeing her on the big screen but I’ll still support her directing films too. Now that she’s married to Brad, she probably wants to focus on being a Mom more too. That’s another reason.

I loved her in that “Maleficient” movie though and planning to get that film on BluRay hopefully soon.

I support her decision and wish her luck.

Lupita Nyong’o from the Oscars last night…

This just came up in my facebook newsfeed. I thought it was pretty funny so I decided to share it here. Before anyone gets mad and calls me a racist… this photo is not racist. The joke is that Brad and Angie has been known to adopting kids from Africa and other countries.

Lupita is a pretty woman, don’t get me wrong but her chest was kind of uncomfortable to look at. She doesn’t have much of a cleavage to show off but I still give her credit for showing off her skin.

Cool Video: “Maleficent” trailer is released and it looks impressive!!!

The visuals looks pretty stunning in this new trailer for the Disney film, “Maleficent”. I like what I see so far. I’m not a very big Disney fan by any means. I only like the classic Disney movies like “Snow White”, “Cinderella”, “Pinocchio”, “Bambi”, “Dumbo”, etc.. I only like a few new live-action Disney films like the “Chronicles of Narnia” series for example.

I’ll probably end up seeing, “Maleficent” in theater. I think I’m pretty much sold to it.
