Best of the Disney princess fairytales. The animation is grand and colorful. The villain and climactic battle are just the coolest.

The buildup to this Disney animated film is a little slow and sometimes indistinguishable from other Disney "princess" films. The explosive conclusion, however, visually ranks up there among some of the most iconic Disney film moments.

The ultimate fairy-tale! The animation is really unique, mixing 60s stylized characters with medieval tapestry inspired backgrounds. The songs are great and do not overwhelm the story.

Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite of the classic Disney animated movies. The story is good and their is a dragon, which always appealed to me. The princess is of course not very dynamic, but you don't expect that in classic Disney.

blah

I'm torn on rating this movie. Overall, it's one of the most boring movies I've ever sat through. And it is probably the most boring Disney film I've ever seen, with the possible exception of Fantasia. However, the animation is brilliant. There was just something about it that kept me watching. It had this slightly odd and off-kilter style to it that I loved. And Maleficent is one of the great Disney villains. With that being said, I just can't get past almost falling asleep twice to this film. And I'm not even counting the two or three times prior to this that I actually did fall asleep and couldn't get through the movie. Lastly, the one fatal flaw with this story, not just the film. The curse that is put on the princess states she must prick her finger by sundown of her 16th b...

Has The Unconventional Strength Of Simplicity

Sleeping Beauty strikes me as a rather straight forward movie. There is little in this movie that will strike the viewer as unexpected. Yet, perhaps that's why Sleeping Beauty is still loved to this day, it's pure simplicity and basic story telling.

Sleeping Beauty is a tale we all know. Princess Aurora is cursed by classic Disney villain, Maleficent. The curse states that the princess will die before her 16th birthday. The three good fairies (Flora, Fauna and Merryweather) take the child as their own to protect her, though ultimately, Maleficent manages to prick Aurora's finger, killing her. Prince Phillip, of course, has to kiss her in order to awake Aurora, but that proves complicated.

Sleeping Beauty has many strengths. It's animation was impressive for it's time, and while it...
