You could probably follow the plot and characters just on the visuals, but I really recommend rewatching it anyway lol.

just watched "maleficent". you know, there might be something to the christians' "satanic scare" from the 80's.

the inversion of good and evil in the story, turning a horned, winged magical being into a heroine, while turning the originally good king stefan into some kind of evil jesus who is brought down by his hatred(instead of his love, as per the original jesus), is pretty obvious. pair that, with the fact that ALL of the males in this story are human garbage(even prince phillip, who "kisses girl in her sleep like some pervert" without actually loving her to break the spell committed out of "wrath of a scorned woman"), and the females are all justified and/or good. maleficent even protects a place called "the moors" where "supernatural beings" dwell. the portuguese meaning for "moor" implies "alien" and "non-christian".

obvious feminist tripe with clearly satanic overtones. it is a revised tale of charles perrault's "sleeping beauty", and after some looking into the people who revised it, it's quite clear why it was done this way.

suffice to say, it's always the same culprit. no surprise there.

Have seen, kinda cute, didn't think much of it. People are trying to subvert the audience expectations a lot these days.

It happens so much that it doesn't subvert expectations at all. You just sit there and wait for the "twist" that you already knew was coming.

Yeah, *spoilers*

Only thing that was great was Angelina Jolie, she should have been more evil though. Rest was bland. Except the part where her wings were chopped off - that was brutal. I still remember that scene quite vividly.

It was decent, but I never understood how/why Angelina Jolie became a top tier actor. Cherize Theron is like 10x better as a dark heroine/anti-heroine.

the whole point of the movie was for the viewer to feel sympathy for the demonic figure and a hatred of the "good guys".

The Maltese Falcon (1941). Often cited as a book which founded the hardboiled detective genre. Much better script and more interesting characters than Sherlock Holmes imho.
