    Maleficent continues to be the misunderstood kick-ass heroine. Maybe she'll make a mistake so they can call her a Most Evil Villain.

    What a barf-fest!

    I cant believe it's real. I cant believe how awful the first movie was, when I had hoped it would be wonderful. The disappointment I felt that day in the cinema was something else. I was ashamed I brought my friends to see it.

    Why couldn't they just remake the animated story? It worked for 101 dalmatians.
    I can sort of understand that they wanted to do something different, but it's not like it became a better story. I think most people just wanted to watch a beautiful movie, and that could have worked with the original story.

    The wicked fairy in the Sleeping Beauty story was not a very interesting villain, compared to, say, the big bad wolf or the witch from Hansel & Gretel or Cinderella's stepmother.
    She barged in, did her magic spell and that was it - sometimes she was also the old lady with the spinning wheel.
    Not only did Disney immensely improve this villain, the movie is mostly about her. There was no need to give her more story. All her scenes in the animated version are fab, why tamper with something that works? I just don't get it. They didn't even give us the dragon transformation.

    I think these kind of twists are great for Shrek movies, the bitchy fairy godmother, an oversexed Pinnochio, the evil humpty dumpty. It's super funny in those movies.
    But not in a movie about the Supreme Villainess.
