In the first movie, Maleficent cursed Aurora, not the spinning wheel spindle, and the curse ended with True Love's Kiss. Therefore, it's impossible for the spindle to be cursed in this movie. See more »
On the international trailers, against a daytime sky, we see Maleficent's castle in the 2011 Disney logo. The camera zooms in and later tilts 90° counter-clockwise. The US, Canadian and YouTube versions of the trailer still using the normal logo. Meanwhile on the actual film, As the 2011 Disney logo finishes, the camera moves in an upper right direction, panning away from the logo. See more »

The new conflict these days in movie making: good and sometimes even excellent visuals against a boring and bad script. The whole movie tastes like a stale beer: whereas the people responsible for the visuals and effects have developed high skills, most of today's writers should just quit their job and serve at dinners instead of torturing the audiences to a braindead level: uninteresting and overused storylines, cliché after cliché, one dimensional characters, boring dialogues, jokes that don't work etc. My rate is 5 but only because of the visuals and the actors, the story itself and therefore the movie is simply a boring one.
