I saw Maleficent

One thing I wish they'd done in Maleficent...

is not have her original name be Maleficent. It's a word with a meaning ('doing evil') and it doesn't make sense for it to be the name of this perfectly nice fairy girl. It could have been a name the humans gave her, or one she chose for herself after being betrayed, but as it is it doesn't make sense.

I also REALLY wish they'd done more with Aurora's mother. How did she feel about the curse and her daughter being taken away? What if Maleficent had tried, for Aurora's sake, to heal her after she became ill? That would have been lovely.

Still, I really enjoyed the movie overall. I found it a really intriguing take on the Wicked Fairy of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, and I'm completely shipping Maleficent/Aurora.
