So you see, the story is not quite as you were told – Maleficent

Have you guys watch the new Maleficent movie?
What do you guys think about it?

As a huge fans of maleficent I must say that I am not satisfied at all with the movie.. Angelina Jolie has perfectly portrayed Maleficent since I guess no one in real life can truly portray her but overall Angelina Jolie did okay… I was amazed with her sound.. she sounded a little bit like maleficent back in the classic sleeping beauty stories..

I kinda wish that they would stick a little bit with the original storyline.. and even the name of the fairies…. They change the name of the fairies.. It wasn’t flora, fauna and merryweather.. It was something else and a weird on indeed… They also make King Stefan as the bad guy.. and die.. also with the queen.. she died in the middle of the film..

But the worst part about this is… They didn’t stick to the original curse!!!!!!!

in the 1959 story.. the curse was: “ Listen well, all of you! The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But… before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel…and DIE!”

But in this movie.. the curse was: “Listen well, you all! The princess will indeed grow in grace and beauty. But before the sunset on her sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel, and she will fall into a sleep like death!” and continues on.. telling them that it was only true love kiss that can break this curse

And what is this with the whole thing about prince and princess.. It’s like they are trying to copy frozen.. The prince, wasn’t the true love kiss.. But it was from maleficent..

This movie will be so much better, if only i’m not a huge fan of the original sleeping beauty

But overall.. It’s a good movie…

We should praised the special effect of this movie. Since most of the part was in CGI. Especially the humongous trees and all the little fairies. The fact that they used goat eyes to make the contact lens for Maleficent was insane. And did you see the weight of the horn! That is one heavy horn.

I would not say much about Elle Fanning’s performance as Aurora cause I found it a bit creepy. She is smiling almost all the time. I know she was supposed to be happy, caring, and loving girl. But the only part I saw that she was struggling was the part when she knew that Maleficent was actually the one who cursed her.

Do you think Disney ruined the whole idea of Sleeping Beauty?
