The fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty" (with different versions collected by Giambattista Basile, Charles Perrault, and the Brothers Grimm) depicts an evil fairy who gets angry after getting excluded from a gathering of mortals and fairies, and seeks revenge. A number of folklorists have suggested that the tale is a reworking of the "Apple of Eris" tale from Greek mythology, and that the uninvited fairy is based on Eris. See more »
In the beginning it clearly showed that Eris pulled a thread from the world that is round. When Sinbad reached Tartarus, the "end" of the world indicated that earth is flat. See more »
What is it?
It just ends, captain. It's the edge of the world.
Pay up. It's flat.

SPOILER ALERT: In the beginning of the film, when the DreamWorks pictures logo is shown there's an transition between the DreamWorks pictures logo and the film -- the camera zooms out through the cloud fades out the logo, and then started to moved down to the inside of Eris' mortal world.

I personally don't mind Dreamworks. They are either hit(How to Train Your Dragon, Prince of Egypt) or miss(Shark Tale, Bee Movie), but when they are good, they are good. Sinbad:Legend of the Seven Seas was surprisingly good and a thoroughly enjoyable animated film. It could have been longer though, and one or two parts could have done with more excitement. That said, the traditional animation is excellent, very colourful and vibrant, and the score is energetic and has a sense of adventure. The story mostly is engaging, with a sequence with seductive sirens standing out as well as the exciting escape from a bird of prey, and the script is smart and witty particularly the banter between Sinbad and Marina. The characters are likable and very well voiced. I am not the biggest fan of Brad Pitt, but he does a solid job as a somewhat flawed yet likable Sinbad, while Catherine Zeta-Jones is fine as the sassy Marina. Eris is quite sinister and fabulously voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer. In conclusion, a thoroughly enjoyable movie. 8/10 Bethany Cox
