I'm a sucker for fairy tales, and I think all those new takes are just awesome. I haven't managed to read a retelling yet, but with Maleficent, I at least watched one. I really hope they are going to make more of these! It was absolutely magical, with all the techniques nowadays... great! I wasn't so fond of the cast, save for Angelina Jolie and Sam Riley, but it's still something to rewatch, because the new plotline was good. It's one that shows you just how much history is written by the victors, and how much more there can be to every tale, that there is indeed another side of the coin.

    1. Right, it wasn't so long, and time just flew by while watching. And I can totally understand you'd like this more than the original story. I think if I watch it a few times more, I'll feel the same. ^^
