the problematic -isms of fairy tales past

Just saw Maleficent…I don’t know what I was expecting, but it was different than I expected. That was a total twist on the original tale. I liked it. I also think if this is what Adam & Eddy intended to do with Once Upon a Time, then they have fallen short. Maleficent is just something that exceeds love triangle after love triangle, trumps any pixie dust fated love interest or love-sick pirate, and brilliantly portrayed exactly how and why a person could be seen as both a villain and a hero.
