Maleficent on Blu-ray – 2014 Holiday Gift Guide


I will admit, when I heard about the movie, Maleficent, I was less than thrilled to see it. It just didn’t seem like my kind of movie. I don’t know why, but I was adamant that I was not going to see it…and I didn’t. I didn’t see it in the theater. My kids and husband did, however and they came home absolutely RAVING about the movie. Once again, I made the wrong choice when it came to seeing a movie at the theater!

First of all, doesn’t Angelina Jolie look amazing?!? As good as she looked in this movie, she gave an even better performance. Minutes into watching this movie, I could see exactly why my kids and husband raved about this movie. I can see why this movie grossed more than $700 million!

What is Maleficent About?

For those of you that don’t know what the movie is about (and apparently live under the same rock as I did)…

Explore the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain in this wickedly fun twist on the classic “Sleeping Beauty.” In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places an irrevocable curse on the king’s newborn daughter, the Princess Aurora. But as the child grows, Maleficent finds herself becoming fond of the girl. And as the conflict between the two realms intensifies, Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land. Journey beyond the fairy tale in this soaring adventure that is “visually arresting, brilliantly designed.

Maleficent makes a great holiday gift this year…maybe a stocking stuffer? At any rate, you will want to add this to your movie collection. The Blu-ray comes jammed packed with quite a bit of bonus feathers you don’t want to miss.
