Re: Maleficent: Grading & Discussion SPOILERS

Wrote a full review on my blog. I thought it was awful. The action sequences were cool and Jolie commanded the screen well but other than that...sheesh.

I thought it took far too broad a scope and it never really settled. I think I would have preferred it had Maleficent taken Aurora when she said "she'll die if these fools look after her" and then we spent a lot of time with her actually raising Aurora, which would have made it far more tragic when the curse eventually hit.

As it is it was pretty shallow.

I also didn't think that, given how paranoid Stefan was portrayed as being, he would allow his daughter to be raised so far out of his control.

Those fairies as well, they annoyed me so much.
