During the Grammy Awards this past Sunday you might have missed, or passed over the newest TV Spot for Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie.
The trailer featured Lana Del Rey crooning a rendition of the famous Disney song “Once Upon a Dream” that is more haunting than cheery. The song was originally used in the 1959 release of Sleeping Beauty, from which the character and story of Maleficent is from. The movie follows the sorceress, and will supposedly show her on her path into evil.Maleficent is set to be released on May 30th, and looks to be a great fit for Jolie who at last year’s D23 convention was quoted saying,
Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite. I was terrified of her, but I was also drawn to her. I wanted to know more about her. She had this elegance and grace, yet she was wonderfully, deliciously cruel.
I was sold the minute I saw the trailer before Disney’sFrozen this past November. I’m glad to see they’re teasing us just enough with each new trailer to not give it all away but still keep us interested!
I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
