Look at the way Madame Jolie stares at Elle like! And them frikkin hands >.< Ahhh I am so dead!
So, I have watched this movie twice and it is everything I expected and more! More because LOL what Prince?! That Dude was in the movie for like, 5 min or less and the first time he showed up we were already in the last 30 min of the movie LOL! Ah but wasn’t the best part, the best was that his kiss was the most useless thing in the whole world! Even wishes pre-Madokami were more useful to Mahou Shoujo than this Dude! Indeed, his role had one direction and that was to simply BE there because Disney Princessess have to have Princes (Elsa is a Queen yo!).
So, his kiss did not awaken Aurora, he did jack shit to nothing, and I was even worried when I read about the internet reactions before watching the movie when they mentioned that he was there in the end so I was worried. But there was absolutely nothing to worry about! Indeed he was there but that was it, he was just there! He just showed up like he was one of the many redundant forest creatures present and his screen time lasted like, a minute or something! Forget what you heard guys, Prince Dick is the least thing to worry about in this movie, if he even is one.
As for the other Dude, Maleficent’s companion, there is even less worry there! Even a girl and her pet animal have more love between them than these two. Obviously the Chengeling Dude might like Maleficent just like that dog loves the girl but does maleficent shower the dog with bones and play with it? Nooooope! So no, he is even less of a worry.
The meat of everything, so to speak, was where we all wanted it to be and all my expectations I was glad to find, were not let down! I swear I felt my chest constricting several times and tried real hard not to cry like a little girl at the dawww moments between Maleficent and Aurora, especially the younger Aurora. And even when she grew up there was so much tension when they were close doing something as simple as talking that…Maybe it was just me!
And that Maleficent blowing kisses on Aurora (casting sleeping spells on Aurora) whenever she got uncomfortable KYAAAAN. Also for some reason, that one time when Aurora asks Maleficent about her wings, I totally chocked on my soda when she asked in a very low voice – “Were they…big?” And her eyes fell just a bit downwards Maleficent’s! yeah, I am going to hell for sure, aren’t I!? That was the real reason I actually went the second time – to confirm that stupid a thing LOL!
And can we all just take a moment to think of that crowning scene towards the end?! Why did Maleficent have to do it?! Why did she do it in the forest with no human soul in sight – humans that Aurora was supposed to be leading? What was this, some kind of secret marriage symbolism?! I swear to you, seeing it makes it even more like a wedding ceremony with the romanticism to the way Maleficent gently placed the golden crown on top of Aurora’s head and the way Aurora bowed her head then beamed up at Maleficent afterwards was just…FFFFFFFFFFFFFF
And of course as if the Directors were thinking, Uh-Oh we are crossing the line, it was this time they decide to drop Prince Dick into the frame. I am sure it did the trick because I felt like I had just tasted a bad part of a potato. Brought my built up happiness down from 11 to 10 I can tell you that.
But then I remembered! You are nothing Prince Dick! Even if you were to be married in the future for the sake of birthing heirs, you will never be Aurora’s true love HA-HA! Your kiss failed to awaken her from the curse! And we had seen Maleficent try many times to un-do the curse before Aurora reached 16 via magic and she has the strongest magic around but she had failed! The only way to go was indeed only True Love’s kiss! The kiss that Dick delivered but totally failed! yeah, I will rub that in until the world stops spinning, or I do (ZOD™)!
And so, thinking that there was no chance for Aurora, Maleficent who had come to care for the girl since she was just a baby, couldn’t hold in her emotions any longer. So she poured her heart out to the sleeping Princess as tears flowed from her magical eyes and apologised for something that she might never get the chance to be forgiven for. When she’s done, she leans forward, kisses the sleeping Aurora on her crown (We don’t use foreheads here yo!) then turns to leave, totally heart-broken and probably ready for death!
But then something magical happened! Aurora opened her eyes and called out to Maleficent. I think I lost a major body part due to it totally melting out of existence at this part!
But something struck me. the way Aurora opened her eyes, was she sleeping but could understand what was going on around her? Like maybe she could have known and heard what Maleficent had said and done (Dick too) because the way she called after Maleficent like that after opening her eyes without any sort of disorientation was just…Ooooh think of the possibilities!
And even better, yes, as if Maleficent waking the legendary Sleeping Beauty with her kiss of True Love wasn’t enough, the two decide to elope together! Seriously, there is no other way to think of it. And the way the King was so desperate to keep them apart, and kill Maleficent, Ahhhh so much symbolism!
But as they are about to escape, Maleficent gets trapped under a net of Iron and fairies are weak against it. She was almost about to be done it but then Aurora saved her by freeing her wings from where they had been locked up. They few back to their Master and then you knew all was right with the world! maleficent with wings makes dragons look like water horses compared to sharks!
This movie was really great for me. I can’t wait for the Blurays to watch it over and over again. I still can’t believe the amount of time it spent on Maleficent and Aurora. I mean the movie was supposed to be about her but I wasn’t expecting them to go through with it. I was expecting lots of Castle time with Aurora but NOPE! Looks like Disney found some balls since 2010. I am now stupidly looking forward to more adaptations. And here I thought Alice and Snow white were the limit, they go and release Frozen, then this!
Great times we live in, huh?
So the world ends with Maleficent getting herself a Queen (Cause she is the King yo!) via marriage by royalty and thus getting their Kingdoms joined (in marriage!) and since she has her own companion to keep her company when Aurora is not around due to work, maleficent figured she could let Prince Dick be Queen Aurora’s own companion because you know, they have to keep up appearances. The world ain’t ready to see Maleficent and Aurora swaggering around town sharing ice cream and holding hands.
I love this movie!
BTW, was it just me or was Prince Dick wearing the equivalent of Ice Dick’s clothes from Frozen? Might be wrong though…
Anyway, the bottom line still stays – I totally loved this movie!
On forward for a few more pics of the two lovely ladies…
