    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

    ★★★★

    Being a huge fan of the Fae world since I can remember, I loved this. The Moors had such cute clever woodland creatures. I was a little surprised at how dark this was, even moreso than the first one. I don’t feel like this is a movie for younger kids, maybe tweens & up, but definitely not little kids.

As far as Viggo is concerned, he’s just fucking brilliant & he’s long overdue for an Oscar, in my opinion. 

    Major kudos to Peter Farrelly for excellent directing & co-writing. I never would…
