1/10: Cute, but not Cinderella
Saturday, September 4, 2021

I was really looking forward to this, but what a disappointmentSo, if you are going to do Cinderella you have to stick with the basic game plan. You have a girl who is abused after father dies and the step mother takes over, and the two step sisters are mean also.The ball comes along and Cinderella gets to go because the fairy godmother uses magic to send her in a beautiful gown and in a pumpkin carriage. There is the glass slippers, and the wedding at the end.You can change stuff to a certain extent but when you cross over those boundaries then it stops being Cinderella. This movie takes too many liberties and too much creative license with the story. For example:Cinderella has a step mother that isn't cruel, she's just missed out on her dream as a pianist and it's all because of a male world. (bs)Cinderella doesn't want to...

5/10: Has its plus and minus an OK movie

Cinderella 2021 is another remake of the classic fairytale. This time its Camila Cabello who gets to put on the glass slippers. Also starring with Camila Cabello is Minnie Driver, Idina Menzel,Billy Porter, Nicolas Galtinze,and Pierce Brosnan. Ella (Cabello) dreams of being a fashion designer and selling her designs to the public. However her stepmother Vivian(Indina Menzel) wants her to marry a suitor named Thomas(who I swore was Keith Lemon)to Ella's dismay. Things turn around though as Ella meets Prince Robert (Nicolas) at the marketplace who becomes smitten with Ella.Will Ella's dreams come true and will she win the heart of the prince. Overall I found this film to be pointless. Here are my pros and cons.Pros Camila was funny in this film and I hope she stars in more films in the future.Billy Porter(who is only in it for barely 10 mins) stoked the entire film for me...

3/10: One of the Worst Cinderellas - Easy
Thursday, September 9, 2021

I rated Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella (starring Lily James, 2015) a 6 - it is entertaining and solid, but this new Cinderella makes Branagh's version look like a masterpiece. I don't talk about casting choices or changes to characters and the like but the execution of the whole affair - the tone is all wrong, the humor feels forced and generic, the whole thing feels like something made up in one day and than filmed in one or two days + post production by the special effects guys. But one thing they got right: the producers achieved to put almost every imaginable modern cliche in this movie. And last but not least, the songs are, well, lets be tender, mucho improvable. Why Pierce Brosnan got involved into this mess (the Mamma Mia movies are Oscar material compared), I don't understand. One of the worst Cinderellas I ever witnessed.Last note: sometimes I suspect, the producers believe their own fake reviews

3/10: Not recommended

Another revamp of the classic fairy tale, this time given a modern multi-ethnic HAMILTON type vibe. Pure fantasy throughout with a medieval backdrop with modernist elements at times. The whole thing is about the superficiality of appearance with the emphasis on fancy clothing and casting attractive performers in the lead roles, but of course on the other side of that you get extremely shallow characters and stilted acting. Cinderella has been given a feminist spin in that she's now a successful fashion designer in her own right, but they also prolong feminine stereotypes by doing that. How about making her a master builder? James Corden continues to be the kiss of death for everything he appears in, and the only interesting songs are covers. Not a recommended film
