I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.... it's the film that had me utterly excited as Disney left superheroes behind and went back to the Fairytale lands that helped build the magic kingdom in the four corners of the world.
But while Maleficent was the big budget spectacle we were waiting for it is not without its flaws. Don't think too much and enjoy one of Disney's greatest villains come to life in a live action adventure that shows us, judgments should be reserved for those who really deserve them.
