Good acting, Good CG and special effects, just don't like rewriting a classic.

Everything went well except from how it ended. It felt like the action scenes on the later part and the crowning of princess were not as extravagant as it supposed to end. The very least they could have done was to make the ending really heartwarming.

a pretty mundane sleeping beauty story. with lots of cgi some of which doesn't look good. average suguary nonsence i dont see this as a cinema movie or one to attract everybody. its very much like your tv fairytale movie. not keen on the casting sleeping beuty is more like a spoilt brat. angelina jolie is ok but has little to back her up. the whole movie looks cg1 riiden and fake and just doesn't have a good look the fairies are awful big heads cg1 sillyness. most of all its boring.nothing really happens of any interest. its over with a whimper as it begins. tv movie for kids even then not much to keep them focused. poor

I believed in fairy tales again during 97 minutes

“Before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she will fall into a sleep like death!”

The very first feature film I've seen (as far as I can remember) was the original Walt Disney film "Snow White and the seven dwarfs" when I was about 6 years. It was in such a tiny village cinema in the pre-smartphone era. You could actually enjoy a movie without the feeling that you were in some kind of nightclub with all these luminescent screens. That movie made quite an impact on me. Maybe that's where my love for the medium of film was created. Later in life, I read lots of books. Especially the fantasy genre appealed to me. A fantasy world as Terry Pratchett, Feist, Terry Goodkind and Tolkien (of course) described it. When reading a book about a mythological and magical worl...

A Tame Maleficent, a Wicked Jolie

With all the reboots and "re-imagining" of characters and stories (Batman to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and much, much more) it's wasn't a question of if Disney was going to dip into this well, but when. While so many heroes are given a "gritty" side these days, in this case one of the Disney's most recognizable villains is given a more favorable makeover. Sleeping Beauty was never my favorite Disney movie - but Maleficent (and that dragon) were by and far the best parts of the animated classic. However, this story isn't a retelling of that tale, but rather the story taken from the point-of-view of the main villain - who maybe isn't so bad after all.

We are introduced to two kingdoms - the human kingdom, where greed and power rule and the harmonious forest kingdom...

'Maleficent' Casts a Spell of Boredom

I had no desire to see this film. To me, this looked like Disney cashing in on one of their familiar brands. And that's exactly what it is, a soulless money throwing exercise. To be fair, the money is up on the screen. But all the creativity, movie-making craft, and entertainment are left behind. The visuals, pretty as they may be, are CGI overload! Nothing real to latch onto here besides the human actors. Those actors are given zero to work with, due to the poor writing. This isn't a live-action retelling of the famed animated Disney classic 'Sleeping Beauty'. This is an entire overhaul of that story. Nothing is the same besides the setting, character names, and some relationships. Okay, a brand new story. I could go along with the idea. NOT in this case. The new story is t...
