“Maleficent”: A Beautiful Snooze

I don’t think the meh reviews for “Maleficent,” which opens this week, will hurt its box office. There is simply too much interest in what Angelina Jolie does with the evil character from “Sleeping Beauty” to keep people away. The Hollywood Reporter offers the only positive review on metacritic, calling the flick “dazzling.” Almost all reviewers praise the visuals, but the Village Voice sums up the consensus best with the phrase “a beautiful snooze.”
