Oh my God!
With a few exceptions, it took me two months from my baby (#2) was born till I had the time to sit down and watch a film again.
It was good to be back, but I can just take a piss at the idea that my movie-watching days, like they where, will be back, for any foreseeable future..
But Maleficent.. it's alright! A bit of everything, nothing original.. but fair and fun.
His locations are stunning, his symmetry intriguing. His cameos are great fun, his humour great. The oddness of it all is fantastic. It's cartoonish quality. It's grainy feel. It's dated, yet undated settings.
It feel like an amazing photograph, taken in a time before my own, with qualities lost for ever, but of magic fabric.
Like looking at your parents wedding pictures, faded and sepia-tainted by time. From sometime in the 70s.
The only thing I would want from Anderson now was a more complex story. Not another mystery with child-like qualities.
