okay, here's why it was dumb

horribly written, sloppy mess of a movie with one or two cool scenes, ruined the character, attempt for money-grubbing, tried way too hard, changed tone and direction several times

dumb

It was fairly crappy - I'm done with all the retconning of fairy tale villains to make them sympathetic.

Looked great [a bit much at times] and Angelina was pretty mesmerising, but the plot was rubbish, and the fairy godmothers were beyond irritating.

How to make the fairies less annoying: have umbridge say "You musn't tell lies" just once.

How to make the fairies less annoying: give someone a flyswatter.

They managed to annoy everyone in the movie, let alone the audience.

I actually liked them when they were human size.
But found them...scary...and more annoying when tiny somehow.

I haven't seen the movie but how did they make the most interesting characters in the original movie (well, 2nd, 3rd and 4th) irritating?

Terrible FX, the CGI characters looked as believable as Roger Rabbit. I can't understand why Angelina Jolie would be involved with this one.

I loved it
I thought it was beautiful and I adore retellings
Angelina fit the part perfectly, and every time
she realizes her wings have been cut off
I cry. Every. Time.
And due to a one year old that is addicted to this movie, I've seen it about 20 times already, lol.

It is ok just watched it for the first last night.

Angelina was great in this, but it was kind of weird.

I can't say I didn't enjoy it while watching it, but I doubt I'll ever feel compelled to watch it again.

Why did they have to change the names of the fairies? Really? I agree they were fairly awful.

I actually didn't hate it. Though, I will agree that I'm kinda sick of seeing these makeovers of Disney villains into more likable, sympathetic characters (why can't someone be evil just because?)
But I feel like in Maleficent, they actually gave her a REASON for being a total bitch to the kingdom. That was something I didn't understand as a kid when I would watch Sleeping Beauty. Why did Maleficent hate them. Why would she waste spit on people she viewed as so beneath her? Not being invited to a party didn't seem like a strong enough motive to me.

I was kinda beginning to roll my eyes at all the 'sweet gestures' Maleficent was doing. And I didn't like who the King became. It kinda disturbed me how awful the Fairies were in raising Aurora. I know why they made it that way, but even then....meh.

What I did like was the girl power and the ending. I thought that was a nice departure.

I'm real behind the times, yes, I realize, but I finally got around to watching it today - and it wasn't 100% horrible.

Angelina Jolie was really the shining star in the whole thing, however. Aurora and the fairy aunts were total ditzes, the king was way over-acted and honestly his vengeance was obnoxious (he cut off HER wings - what in hell did he think was going to happen?!)

Cinematically it was rather striking and I liked how they mixed in the Disney bits a little. It also made me feel a little bit bad for Maleficent - they made her a sympathetic character. And the crow dude added a little levity.

So like I said, not 100% horrible.
