Precisely my thoughts, but the studios keep casting Jolie in roles again and again and again.

 >:(
  I can't believe the waste of talent here.  Instead of wasting Jolie's talents here, they should do a remake of "Who's afraid of Virginia Wolf", casting her in Taylor's part, with Keannu Reeves playing the part played by Richard Burton. This would allow for this story to be enjoyed by an entirely new generation!

Isn't the word "enjoy" an oxymoron when used in a sentence with the names of those two movie stars?

 ??? 
Collecting! It's what I do!

If something is really bad, there can be a perverse enjoyment in viewing it.  One of my favorite Keannu Reeves films to enjoy in how really bad it is, is the version of "Babes in Toyland he did, with Drew Barrymore.  Hey, maybe Nicholas Cage and Myley Cyrus can play the other couple in the Virginia Wolf remake.

Say what you will re Bill & Ted, but I feel KR was magnificent in The Matrix!

Also, I have a soft spot for Point Break.

I like the concept, but I think Lindsay Lohan would be a better fit for Mr. Reeves talent.

Ok, I'll give you Point Break, but I found Bill & Ted a lot more enjoyable than that pretentious Matrix trilogy.

An acquaintance of mine shared this article with me.  I never knew of the Vampira-Maleficent connection.

Very interesting!  Maila also has said that she did voice work for the Haunted Mansion as Madame Leota; apparently no recordings exist of her performance although she had claimed that some of the HM outtakes (heard on various bootlegs and HM Anniversary releases) were her voice!  Usually these outtakes are always attributed to, interestingly enough Elainor Audly (the actual voice of Madame Leota and the more known human form of Maleficent)........and the two actresses actually do sound alot alike!
