Great Job Angelina Jolie! Maleficent was outstanding. Incredibly imaginative re-telling of Sleeping Beauty. I highly recommend.
Skip Vampire Academy, unless you’re really hard-pressed for entertainment. It wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever seen but it was weak in so many ways. There were some interesting new ideas on vampire mythology but overall the whole package was not well executed. Once again, a book series that’s probably pretty good (although I’ve never read it) doesn’t translate well to the screen.
Maleficent benevolently protects her home — the forest kingdom over which she presides — and all the creatures that dwell there, but a harsh betrayal turns Maleficent’s pure heart stone cold. Driven by relentless revenge and a fierce passion to protect her land from invaders, the now vindictive and ruthless Maleficent places an irrevocable curse on the human king’s newborn baby, Aurora.
