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 »

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.

"Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" is a wonderful animated feature by Dreamworks. This under-rated movie was very well done with eye-catching visuals and an intriguing story. The scenes of the battle against the sea monster, and the visit to Eris' realm in Tartarus are particularly artistic. Granted, the legend of Sinbad may have been taken far from its "Arabian Nights" roots to go more towards Greek mythology. But all the mythic elements make the story a thing of wonder. Personally, I think every mythology and folklore canon in the world has some connections with each other, so who's to say that Middle Eastern folklore doesn't share any similarities with Greek mythology? Anyway, "Sinbad" truly deserves to be seen and enjoyed!
