Although the conventional set pieces and excessive use of SFX give it a light stench of banality, "Maleficent" is a re-imagining of a Disney classic that's not entirely necessary but isn't deserving of disapproval either.

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.

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 world …

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.
