Why? P.T. Anderson, that’s why!

5. Maleficent – Robert Stromberg
Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorite Disney toons. Angelina Jolie just looks so freakin’ beautifully evil.
Stars Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges and The Guard) and Chris O’Dowd (The IT Crowd).

Are you kidding? My favorite toy ever! I don’t know what it’s about but I’m in.
I’m scared, yet very curious, but quite scared!
