Happy Skull and Bones to all!

The Galileo skull and bones club

 

 

Legendary guitarist Joe Perry   10710681_344648252375491_1791292575009564382_n of the band of The Aerosmith has recently bought a creation inspired to Native American culture.

 

It is a linoleum cuts creation dedicated to the so-called Bridge series and it was realized in 2013  for celebrating in a gothic mood The Golden Gate Bridge and its 75th Anniversary analyzed under a visionary, absolutely, gothic aspect.

These creations are inspired by american culture and mexican one.

 

In particular a festival has been put under the lens of the creator: “The day of Dead”. These skeletons are hybrid versions of the American “way of life” so a sort of melting pot of cultures where there is fusion of the mystical vision of native americans and mexican one with a more “modern” idea of life.

All the skeletons are happy and cheerful while hanging out together or enjoying their various daily activities.

Johnny Depp, gothic lover, has also bought two creations of the artist last september.

Johnny Depp bought “Golden Gate Cruise”, and “Golden Gate City”.

Two legends in this exclusive gothic club.

“Benedict such a good guy, Depp a magical human being”

Posted in Books, Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on October 30, 2014

Words said by Juno Temple recently in Digital Spy interview

 

 

Juno Temple born in 1989,  daughter of producer Amanda Pierie and director Julien Temple,  in the movie business ’til the beginning of her existence, has been part of the cast of Black Mass by Scott in the role of prostitute 1932493_344135972426719_7870097465464901465_nand victim Deborah Hussey.  The biopic movie based on the nonfictional book written by the Boston Globe’s reporters and writers Dick Lehr and Gerry O’Neill: Black Mass: Black Mass Book Cover    Whitey Bulger, the F.B.I. and a devil’s deal.

The movie explains the intricated story of the most known American mobster of all the times: the irish mobster Whitey Bulger whitey 4 whitey  from South Boston with the local F.B.I. of Boston.
This one, although people involved in this story are proclaiming their innocence, is still the biggest scandal of all the Usa.

The words of Juno Temple about Benedict Cumberbatch: “He’s so good, and he’s such a good guy. It’s that thing of just being so happy when really good things happen to really good people. People that really deserve it, and work goddamn hard, and get down and dirty with what they do. I’m so happy for him, it’s such an earned thing. If people go back and watch what he was doing before he was this big household name, he has constantly been brilliant, it’s just finally the world’s woken up to it!

Temple confessed she didn’t work with Cumberbatch while she was filming Black Mass.

I didn’t have any scenes with Benedict, but I got to hang out with him in Boston“.

Very good words for Johnny Depp.

I did have the pleasure of working with Johnny Depp, who is a magical, magical human being, a real one of a kind human being. His look in the film is extraordinary. I remember being in the middle of one scene actually taking in his eyes, and having a moment of thinking ‘…Yeah, you are frightening! 10547671_297200410453609_4781995239279213270_n (Copy 1) 10433842_294206544086329_1853548928510790858_n (Copy 1)But then you say cut, and he’s such an interesting person to talk to”.

Boston accent

I also had to do a Boston accent, which was a real challenge. It’s not that I find standard American easy, (the actress was born in London, Uk) but I do find it easier, and even southern is a very simple change for an English person. It’s just about where it sits in your throat and how musical things are, and English and southern are quite similar“.

Vulture, Success and Johnny Depp

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on October 29, 2014

What determines a movie’s A-LIST star value?

 

Vulture recently has published the new top 100 of the most important, paid and respectables A-LIST American actors and actresses.

Many the factors able to bring a big success to a movie-star. Of course first of all a strong base. And for a strong base not just the most devoted and affectionated first time followers and admirers, but “all the rest” of the Planetarian population, able to make the difference and to saying: “Wow, what a guy I want to go to see his movie because I think he is amazing. I want to buy his movie because amazingly interesting”.

 

More an actor is able to touch the heart of people and more will be successful because his movies will be seen by everyone. It’s a story of numbers, money and respectability. Vulture writes that for reaching certain levels what it is indispensable are: box office numbers, social media buzz, increasing foreign strength, and critical respect.

The top ten is this one: Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp deppink005, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper.

 

Johnny Depp is at the 8th place and Vulture thinks that the last time they released their top 100 list he was at the third place. But…But…Lately the actor hasn’t created any great box office success but the opposite.

 

Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence and other movies as well, they have been all very big flops and considering the huge amount of money spent for these mega-productions, a great damage.

Vulture asks if the audience maybe can be tired of his eccentricities.

What do you think?

I will be back soon with this topic.

“Early Days”

[Chorus:]

They can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

Dressed in black from head to toe
Two guitars across our backs
We would walk the city roads
Seeking someone who would listen to the music
That we were writing down at home.

[Chorus:]
But they can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through does early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

Hair slicked back with vaseline
Like the pictures on the wall of the local record shop
Hearing noises we were destined to remember
We will the thrill to never stop

May sweet memories of friends from the past
Always comes to you, when you look for them
And your inspiration long may it last
May it come to you time and time again

Now everybody seems to have their own opinion
Of Who did this and who did that
But as for me I don’t see how they can remember
When they weren’t where it was at

[Chorus:]
They can’t take it from me, if they tried
I lived through those early days
So many times I had to change the pain to laughter
Just to keep from getting crazy

I lived through those early days
I lived through those early days

Alice in Wonderland: new certainties

Posted in Books, Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on October 27, 2014

Definitive title and movie release date!

 

There are a lot of novelties from Disney regarding Alice in Wonderland “second act”.

The final title of Alice in Wonderland 2 will be: Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

An enthusiastic movie this one. The new adventures of Alice “Through the looking Glass” will be an experience viewers can’t lose. Why?
Well because mainly the new director of the movie, James Bobin, a truly fanatic of Victorian History, has developed innovative and special ideas for this movie version of the second book written by Lewis Carroll. The movie won’t literally follow the second book written by Lewis Carroll but it will be something else. The novelty?  A new tale in the main…tale. Alice will travel through the Underland and the Time.

 

Plus Bobin added once he wants to present to the viewers a stunning movie and at the end of the movie viewers must say: “Wow! I loved it so badly! I am happy to be here.” With these enthusiastics promises I know that no one will be deluded by it.  I am more than sure in fact that creativity is like an endless caldrum of ideas on the set of Alice.

The script has been written by Linda Woolverton and Danny Elfman will create a new soundtrack for the movie.

Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass will be released on theaters may 27, 2016.

The previous Alice in Wonderland was directed by Tim Burton.

Hello Little Girl from the Broadway musical Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim

Posted in Books, Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on October 27, 2014

10388200_343271435846506_6778836146338218194_n

stephen sondheim photo_Jerry Jackson The song will sing Johnny Depp 7 in the movie Into the Woods. This one is the version of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.

 

 

Hello, Little Girl

934802_594116557378540_8122797034347402396_n
Look at that flesh, pink and plump
Hello, little girl
Tender and fresh, not one lump

1978851_594116547378541_785874051392675923_n
Hello, little girl

This one’s especially lush
Delicious, mmm
Hello, little girl, what’s your rush?

You’re missing all the flowers
The sun won’t set for hours
Take your time

Mother said, “Straight ahead”
Not to delay or be misled

But slow, little girl, hark and hush
The birds are singing sweetly

10437616_341774075996242_7484637702357584922_n
You’ll miss the birds completely
You’re traveling so fleetly

Grandmother first then Miss Plump
What a delectable couple

10584088_341774109329572_2500115854908852307_n
Utter perfection, one brittle, one supple
One moment, my dear

Mother said, “Come what may
Follow the path and never stray”

Just so, little girl, any path
So many worth exploring

10419380_342162165957433_4316991187174705580_n
Just one would be so boring
And look what you’re ignoring

Think of those crisp aging bones
Then something fresh on the palate

1966890_594116580711871_6247514484343361238_n
Think of that scrumptious carnality

Twice in one day
There’s no possible way
To describe what you feel
When you’re talking to your meal

Mother said, “Not to stray”
Still I suppose, a small delay
Granny might like a fresh bouquet

Goodbye, Mr. Wolf
Goodbye, little girl and hello
Hello, oh, hello darling

 

 

 

Into the Woods: soundtrack released 12/16

Posted in Books, Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on October 26, 2014

Shocking news, in positive sense. The soundtrack of Into the Woods will be released before the appearance of the movie.

 

 

What a great news.  Into the Woods  soundtrack, two cds,  will be available this coming 12/16.

No idea why a choice like this one but maybe the main reason is that Into the Woods is a musical and what can give a better idea of what it will be on screen more than a soundtrack?

What it is sure is that the musical written and invented by Stephen Sondheim stephen sondheim photo_Jerry Jackson in 1987 is a classic of Broadway and it always obtained a great success of critic and public.

It is possible to pre-order the soundtrack on Amazon .

The structure of this innovative fairy-tale was born and is born as a broken, technically, better, fractured fairy-tale.

A broken, fractured fairy-tale is obtained when a fairy-tale is re-invented mixing characters and paradoxical situations absolutely not lived in the original fairy-tale by the various characters involved in the story and when there is a mixture of various characters of various legendary fairy-tales all together.

The character of the Wolf  is lived in a very different way respect to the original fairy-tale.

Let’s remember the fairy-tale. Poor Little Red Riding Hood originally went at her granny’s house because the granny was sick.

For this purpose she brought with her a basket of good food for her granny hoping in a quick recovery.

Her mom had said her of paying attention and not give any confidence to anyone. Just in case. The Little Red Riding Hood (Good Lord what a long name in Italian it’s “just” Cappuccetto Rosso) met along her way the wolf and ingenuously because of course she didn’t still know the corruption of the world and how wolves of various genre could be dangerous told him very candidly and with great tranquility of her purpose of stopping by at the house of her beloved granny because sick. She also added where her granny lived. The wolf  happy and satisfied for the informations received, suggested to her another road, longer, with the purpose of anticipating her arrival, eating the granny and waiting for  the little girl. What a superb lunch!

Once arrived at her granny’s house, Little Red Riding Hood had some difficulties in recognizing her nice granny in the sly camouflaged wolf in the bed of the old lady.

“Oh Granny but…you are so changed…You have very big hands….”

“For hugging you better….”

“And these big eyes”

“For seeing you better”

“And what a big mouth granny….”

“For eating you better!!!”

Two jumps on her direction and  Little Red Riding Hood was in the wolf’s belly. If you remember the end of the story, a hunter would have saved the still alive granny and Little Red Riding Hood.

In this case Stephen Sondheim created in 1987  a very different, completely different perspective of this fairy-tale: the wolf 10437616_341774075996242_7484637702357584922_n is a creature who attracts Little Red Riding Hood10584088_341774109329572_2500115854908852307_n Into the wood, but only for sexual purposes 10374514_342172399289743_2841897908571607980_n The wolf is the character portrayed by Johnny DeppNassauJune2005039

 

In these re-written fairy tales is possible to rewrite the story from the point of view of the villain.  Hansel and Gretel according to the terrible witch’s vision and so on.

It’s possible to write a story telling what happened according to us for example to Cinderella once married with the prince and if it was all the time a “bed of roses” or if it was a problematic love-story and a difficult marriage the one with the charming prince. Our imagination should have all the possible freedom we want and we need for expressing ourselves and our creativity. This exercise of the fractured fairy-tale in fact is one of the best exercises created in the writing courses. It’s part of the creative writing branch.

In the case of Sondheim this fairy-tale Into the Woods is a mixture of many important Grimm’s fairy-tales’s characters and the interactions with all these different and diversified characters will be able to surprise the viewer. This one is a very adult fairy-tale for Broadway with the common adult problematics existing in our old world.

A baker and his wife can’t have any children because cursed by a terrible witch so they decide of going “Into the Woods” searching to destroy this horrible creature and witch. It’s in a way a story of wish and quest. The wish is the desire of having children, the second is of course the desire of searching for the witch and possibly destroying her and her curse.

Rob Marshall is not new in the creation of stunning masterpieces as it was Chicago.

The movie is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine. Lapine wrote the script as well and Sondheim composed the music and lyrics including the new songs for the movie adaptation.

Produced by Rob Marshall, John DeLuca, Marc Platt and Callum McDougal.

 

This one is the complete cast of Into the Woods.

Meryl Streep is The Witch, James Corden The Baker, Emily Blunt The Baker’s Wife, Johnny Depp is The Wolf, Anna Kendrick is Cinderella, Chris Pine Cinderella’s Prince, Billy Magnussen Rapunzel’s Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy is Rapunzel, LUCY Punch is Lucinda, TAMMY Blanchard Florinda, Christine Baranski Cinderella’s Stepmother, Tracey Ullman Jack’s Mother, Lilla Crawford Little Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone is Jack.
