Our review:

We really enjoyed this movie! It was interesting to see the Sleeping Beauty tale through the eyes of Maleficent. Angelina Jolie did a great job playing Maleficent. I loved the crow that she would turn into a man and then back into a crow. She kept turning him into different animals, depending on what she needs at that moment. It was sad to see how hurt and angry Maleficent got after loosing her wings.

Aurora played by Elle Fanning, saves the day in the end when she finds Maleficent's wings trapped in a glass case. She breaks the case so Maleficent can get her wings back just when she was about to be killed. The final battle at the end was awesome! I found myself rooting for Maleficent who is suppose to be the evil person in the film. It was fun watching Aurora grow up too with the three fairies trying to raise her and they don't have a clue how to raise kids. 

The Blu-ray special features are really good too. I liked watching Aurora: becoming a beauty. Elle Fanning talks about her roll in the movie. She has such a fun personality. The other feature I liked is: building an epic battle. There are also deleted scenes, Maleficent revealed and much more!
