Everything Wrong With Maleficent

Cinema Sins returns with an all new installment. Taking aim at this summer’s blockbuster, Maleficent, the web series had much to discuss.

"Disney thought they could sneak one by us, sleepwalking their way through a Tim Burton paint-by-numbers 're-imagining,'" the Cinema Sins site stated. "Disney was wrong. Sins of Maleficent!"

In Maleficent, after being betrayed and brutally attacked vengeful fairy who has been is driven to curse an infant princess, only to discover that the child may be the one person who can restore peace to their troubled land.

Starring Angelina Jolie, as the titular anti-heroine, Maleficent is a re-imagining of the 1959 Disney animated film, Sleeping Beauty, only told from the perspective of the story's villainess.

Cinema Sins in an online series that takes a look at films and points the movie’s errors and tropes both great and small.


“No movie is without sin,” the series' tagline explains.
