My Thoughts

I give Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Blu-ray a B.

Maleficent, she is the Mistress of Evil, but this was not the case in this film.  She is, after all, a mother.  This film took you through a magical journey full of color and adventure.  Though I am not much of a fan of Disney movies with their storybook fairytale endings, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil took you to a different world.

There are many things I liked about this film and unfortunately, I have yet to see the first film. Angelina Jolie was incredible as Maleficent. Her look, costume, and acting were beautifully done. Yes, you automatically think she is up to no good but in this film she was not.  You actually felt compassion for her.  She was just a mother caring for her child.

Michelle Pfeiffer (Queen Ingrith) was incredible.  I think an evil villainous queen suits her.  I hated that she was trying to kill the cute little creatures of the Moors.  I even wanted to go through the TV screen and fight her!

I also really enjoyed the opening scene with the Queen of the Moors (Elle Fanning) and all the creatures gathering to see her. It was beautiful seeing everything come to life.

Catch Maleficent: Mistress of Evil on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital Code January 14th!
