Happy Holidays Everyone,
I don't really much to say this week for an opening for the reviews. The only thing of note for me, is that, it's that, I'm healthier now. I'm not back-to-work yet, but I hope to be very soon. Mostly, I've been spending Christmas catching up on stuff that's been piling up. I'm feeling better though and I'm starting to think about writing a bit more these days. I'm starting to get some ideas again which is good.
In the meantime, I got around to more movies this time around then unusual, including some newer ones, thank you streaming, so let's get to them.
MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL (2019) Director: Joachim Ronning
Okay, before I get into anything regarding this film, can we please stop naming movies "Alice". Or for that matter, all media, can we just stop with "Alice". I can think of like five movies named "Alice" off the top of my head, and that's not counting the TV show, and not counting titles that have the word "Alice" in them, including ones that also have the word "Wonderland" in them, and that's not counting books et. al. Just- if you have to name a piece of media after the main female protagonist, please pick another name. As somebody who keeps track of every film he's ever seen, including an alphabetized list, this is getting annoying.
There is little-to-no real dispute that Roy Cohn was one of the smartest, most talented and most successful lawyers in American history. That said, Roy Cohn was amung the worst kind of lawyers. Worst kinds of people actually. His friends and clients were often loyal, mostly too loyal, since one of the reasons he was inevitably disbarred was because he had stolen money from them. He even once tried to claim a client on his deathbed has signed his will while incompacitated to him. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see the-, what can generously be described as a, scribble, that was written down on the piece of paper that Cohn was trying ot claim forever was indeed, his client's name, and arguably, that's not even in the Top Ten worst things he's done.
