The new Disney movie Maleficent is out! There is lots of buzz about the movie and with good reason. We saw an adcance screening for it, and loved it! The movie is set to be told from the viewpoint of Maleficent, the one we know as the evil witch in the story “Sleeping Beauty”. Personally I love this because it really reminds us that there are two sides to every story.
The film itself is amazing: the colors the staging, the 3D aspect is phenomenal as you have fairies flying about you when you are watching the idyllic fairyland side. The makeup and special effects are impressive.
As a regular moviegoer, I was very entertained and interested in the movie. I truly enjoyed it. Something that really caught my eye is how the 3D aspects were handled. This movie is filled with action but unlike most 3D movies I have watched, there is not a constant flurry of items or characters flying constantly at your face. I did appreciate it very much. Instead most of the time, you are being pulled into the world of the movie. You get surrounded by the landscape of the Moor (fairyland); for example.
Here is the official synopsis of the movie:
Is Maleficent a good movie for children?
Is it the Sleeping Beauty story all over again?
It tells the story from a different angle. Yes, you will hear about the fairy godmother, and about prince charming, but its the classic story with a twist, from a different perspective.
I hope when you watch the movie you get to enjoy it as much as we have.
We liked it so much we are hoping for a sequel!
