A real joy the return of Will Turner!

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on April 4, 2017

Fans of Pirates are very happy because another important piece of the saga of this loved movie is back for good: Orlando Bloom in his historical role of Will Turner.

The actor born in Kent, England on January 13 1977, known also for his spectacular role as the Elf Legolas in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit will replace his historical role as Will Turner.

Substantially Will Turner is the good boy of the adventures of the saga.

Blacksmith, conscious of his social status, Will refuses to be more than a friend with Elizabeth Swann the daughter of mr. Swann and promised to Commodore Norrington although he feels strong sentiments for her.

Later Will discovers that there is some Pirates blood in his veins as well.

His dad in fact was a Pirate.

After a first delusion, Will embrace the cause of piracy with all himself adding that quid able to make the difference in his case and that was why a part of fans of the saga loves his character a lot.

There is linearity in Will’s life and there is maybe the “necessity of being a pirate” a necessity that Jack Sparrow doesn’t have.

Jack (Johnny Depp plays the role of Sparrow) is born as a pirate and will die as a pirate. He will always laugh and smile and cheat and he will always be in love for freedom, looking at that horizon and endless inviting ocean. It is in his veins.

At first, Will, and his actions are more tended to helping in situations of necessity and although Will knows that Jack sometimes is not the best mate around he can’t stop and help himself to being one of his mates because he knows, he perfectly knows that with him he will experience the best, wonderful, sardonic, weird adventures of all his life.

Will is in love with Elizabeth from the first movie although at some point Jack will try to steal this love and at the moment is the Captain of The Flying Dutchman the cursest ship of all the world. The captain of the Flying Dutchman in fact heartless in the real sense of the word and the crew formed by phantoms.

Elizabeth has a son with Will, Henry that we will meet in Pirates 5.

Thank Lord it’s working!

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on March 31, 2017

Hi there Deppheads of all the world. I am sorry I didn’t keep updated my Johnny’s blog but it happened this world and the other in my life last months and simply this page didn’t work anymore like other ones.

My dad died last Nov 2 and oh boy it was a terrible experience for sure. I spend more time at the cemetery than home.

I thank Lord wagons of times that at a certain point I met along my way fans of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton so that coping with death is much more simple.
I don’t want to say that there is no sufferance but it is lived differently.

Of course I didn’t update anything the first months and so for what I know of they stole me passwords etc.

OK: so let’s re-start, because Pirates is very close, our sexy Johnny also recently has been spotted at the birthday of Lady Gaga. Happy Belated Birthday! Lady Gaga.
I see that there is a lot to write about our Johnny!

The String of Pearls – The original tale of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street -by Thomas Preskett Prest

Posted in Books, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on February 10, 2017

The String of Pearls the-string-of-pearls by Thomas Preskett Prest is a dark book you’ll love so badly.

It is in fact the story of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Strange street Fleet Street.

Once, as also written in the London’s biography by Peter Ackroyd Fleet Street was an insane little river, but because of sanitary problems and illness that the river brought to the people, during the time the administration transformed it in a street, although a touch if insanity it is still going on.

No one knows if this one is a legend or not.
Surely London is not just the capital of UK but also a city avid for blood and so it seems that once upon a time there was a weird weird strange barber called Sweeney Todd in Fleet Street.

This book, The String of Pearls inspired the legendary musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler created and launched in 1979 and winners of eight Tony Awards.

Later Johnny Depp johnny-and-tim-burton would have created, based on the musical by Sondheim with Tim Burton as director Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It was 2007.

The story of Sweeney Todd told in this book, is pretty different from the musical and the movie.

The horror, I wouldn’t never read it differently, in different ways is left to the imagination of us, readers, but the book is written with great linguistic property and class. The writing style of 1800 is adorable because punctual, precise, can I add: perfect?

Anyway the lovely partner of Sweeney Todd, a barber of Fleet Street has a store with mr Jarvis Williams and there they sell wonderful delicious sweet meat pis. They are loved by everyone. They’re the sweetest ones you can find around and who knows if attracted by mrs. Lovett or simply because the meat is so delicious, the store is always plenty of people.

Mrs. Lovett in love with Sweeney Todd, a good criminal pair this one.

Sweeney Todd has a good work as barber, although strangely not all the men who enter in his shop for making their beard go out after the work. Who knows why. A dog is still waiting for his owner…
Through a trap door Sweeney after the service, in general he cut the throat at his victims, would send them to Mrs Lovett for being “prepared” to becoming delicious meat for the customers of her delicious reality…

Sure something starts to go bad for Sweeney Todd. Killing means also someone who start to search for some missing people. Johanna is searching for her fiance, and at the same time also Colonel Jeffrey is searching for his friend Thornhill strangely missing. Where are them all?
Maybe in the stomach of some very satisfied people, who knows? but no one still know this horrific reality. Surely all of them spotted the last time close to Sweeney Todd’s barber’s shop. So later, where did they go?

Great relevance in the story also at the poor boy Tobias Ragg, one of the most interesting characters of the book, the young apprentice of Sweeney Todd…

Go for this book if you search for pure horror but also a horror told with great respect and without to go into details that could scare people. It’s a classic, It says all the word: classics.The String of Pearls like all the classics has the characteristic of eternity and immortality.

I thank Endeavour Press for this book.

UTA cancels the Oscar Party protesting against Donald Trump’s immigration ban

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on February 10, 2017

UTA deletes the event

 

The United Talent Agency, the one joined just few days ago by Johnny Depp after his decision of interrupting his long-term (from 1989) collaboration with Tracey Jacobs is in first line against President Trump trump and the incredible aggressive policy against immigration in a place, the America made and built by immigrants of all the world who have believed at the big potentialities of that land.

The only population Cristoforo Colombo found in America were the Native Americans and I would want to remember that the treatment reserved to them by white people hasn’t been one of the best ones.

Said that, past can’t be re-written unfortunately, the American Dream has always been the biggest dream for generations of people who believed that leaving their lands and affording to the USA in particular made the difference.

There is not a French Dream, there is not an Italian Dream: there has always been an American Dream because thanks to a system in grade to give support and at the hard work of the various immigrants, each person could find a good corner of the world where building a good existence.

The UTA at the moment announced that in sign of protest will cancel the pre-Oscar party replacing it hosting a rally in support of refugees.

They will also donate $250,000 at the American Civil Liberties Union and International Rescue Committee because this union will fight against the ban wanted by President Trump. The mission of this union: to preserve the Constitutional liberties promised to all the American Citizens.

That Hollywood is in tension is more than true and it’s not excluded that similar initiative will involve other companies or other pre-Oscar parties.

At the moment the ban wanted recently by Trump prevented the entrance in the USA of  people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. All of it, for avoiding terrorist attacks.

There were some development in the while and a judge of the West Coast affirmed that the ban unconstitutional, so at the moment people from these country can enter in the USA. Children with big problems who couldn’t be cured in their countries are in the USA for receiving medical cures and being operated. People working in many big corporate can continue to do their work.

At the same time the suspension of the ban created another big fight between the judge, the administration Trump, the same President, very upset with the judge who declared unconstitutional his ban and at the moment he is trying to re-affirm  that the USA is under big peril if muslin immigrants are admitted in the USA and that the ban is legitimate by problems of security. Another sentence is waited in a few days.

Most of the clients of the UTA have unsupported during the Presidential Campaign Donald Trump telling vibrantly to common people of not voting for him. The spiral of the populism strongest than many appeals.

Let’s remember Johnny Depp 1 with his parody of the same Trump. Johnny also added that if Trump would have been elected he would have been the latest President elected with this modality.

Another actor involved in many humanitarian causes Angelina Jolie.
In the list of actors represented by UTA Gwyneth Paltrow Barbra Streisand and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Pre-Oscars parties are the most beautiful event of this circus called Academy Awards in which stars and people of the movie industry can socialize all together. They’re beautiful and exclusive events.

The party of the UTA organized on the Friday night before the Oscars.

The UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer zimmer-1 declared: “This is a moment that demands our generosity, awareness and restlessness. Our world is a better place for the free exchange of artists, ideas and creative expression. If our nation ceases to be the place where artists the world over can come to express themselves freely, then we cease, in my opinion, to be America.”

We can just hope that President Trump will understand that the so-called other is not an enemy but someone we can learn  and grow up with and that terrorism can be won using other strategies not blocking an entire culture because of few cruel individuals.

Some Muslims one day while I was reporting an event created in a city close to me, Umbertide, one of the most multi-cultural city in Umbria, after the horrible terrorist attack in Paris at the Bataclan more than a year ago said me: “Please write this. That these people are terrorist, not that there is Islamic Terrorism but that this one is just terrorism. These people could also have close to their beds our Bible, but trust me they’re not Muslims to us and we don’t recognize them as Muslims because our religion is pacific. They just use religion for killing innocent people.”

We all know that history repeat itself.

Maybe it would be great to start a fight against the indoctrination of these teenagers or young adults created by these leaders of terror, trying to understand why it is possible this brain-washing able to create terrorists and how to interrupt this spiral. I would surely start from there.

The Flying Dutchman

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on February 6, 2017

As we know this one will be one of the ships protagonists of Pirates 5 and so let’s try to see what there is behind this legend.

Sometimes it’s destiny.

And it was what happened to the captain of The Flying Dutchman when on 1641 he was cursed by a supernatural creature. Captain Van Der Decken was at Cape of Good Hope. He had left from Holland with his ship, he worked for the Dutch East India Company for affording and bringing to Holland a lot of things and foods from the distant Indies. Spices at that time a rarity able to make rich a sailor who would have stolen two or three nutmegs and sold them to some important and rich man once returned home as remembers Giles Milton in Nathaniels Nutmeg.

During a night of torments, in which captain Van Der Decken was drunk and there was also a tempest and crazy wind and big and dangerous waves, he decided to pass through the Cape of Good Hope although crew and passengers admonished him: “Please, don’t continue. Please choose another route. Use your compass wisely, captain.”

But the captain was firm in the purpose to continue although waves always more tall and conditions always more scaring and precarious.
He returned once in his cabin and once again out he discovered that the various sailors had decided to boycott him taking the complete control of the ship.
Mutiny.
If the captain was insane someone had to do something thought the rest of the scared people in that ship.

But captain van der Decken didn’t accept any sorta of dialogue and killed without thinking twice the leader of the rebellion.

He threw from the ship the body of the unfortunate leader man and sailor without too many compliments, giving it to the Ocean for resting in peace, but… when the body of this man touched the cold sea of the Ocean, a voice of a supernatural creature told him that, because of his behavior he would have been cursed forever, and his crew would have been composed not anymore by men but by dead men, ghosts because of what he did and because he tried to be a God.

Most famous artists interested at  the Flying Dutchman with the time.
Richard Wagner with The Flying Dutchman, but also Coleridge, Walter Scott and on July 11 1881 the future King George V with his brother Albert Victor of Wales saw this ship in Australia.

Yes: it’s possible to seeing this cursed ship in various part of the world, not just at Cape of Good Hope.

Scientists will insist that this one is just a vision and that like mermaids there is nothing, but I want to believe that somewhere exists the Flying Dutchman and that the captain of this ship is still angry with the world, that he can’t touch any land for any reason, that he is heartless and that he is surrounded by a group of peaceless dead men as a crew. Because dreaming sometimes is more than necessary and the dimension of dream the only one able to keep us alive in a too materialistic and sad world.
