What i said before in the other poll. They're shaming romantic love in attempt to look feminist and copy the "girls can save each other" trope from Frozen. This, and this is why I'll always consider Sleeping Beauty to be far superior to the remake. Sleeping Beauty was a true fairytale, with magic. The remake was an embarrassing attempt to be more politically correct, and ends up being even more unfeminist than the original.

^I'm sorry I got to ask, why is it in almost al the polls for Maleficent you keep bringing up feminism?

^Because Maleficent keeps marketing itself as a more feminist movie, which is untrue. People keep criticizing the original for being antifeminist, which is untrue, and overpraise Maleficent for being more feminist, which is also untrue. The attacks against the original to praise the remake is what bugs me.

In the original, we have different types of females. The girly damsel, the strong fairies with agency, the strong villain. In the remake, we have a similar Aurora, but a "villain" whose entire revenge is around a man (so much for being a strong female character whose plot shouldn't be around a man) and incompetent fairies who put them at the damsel level. I fail to see how the remake is more feminist than the original. Speaking of which, Sleeping Beauty has a higher ratio of female dialogue than most other movies. True feminism, is about variety, it's about choice. It's ok to be a strong woman like the fairies. It's also ok to be girly and get help, even if that help happen to come from a man, like Aurora.
