I checked Netflix and they have Kenneth Branagh‘s take on Cinderella. I decided I should check it out because I saw that Cate Blanchett plays the evil stepmother. The movie stayed true to its Disney roots, I must say. It was wholesome, feel good, value-ridden and sugary over all. I was a bit iffy about the fairy Godmother though. I pictured her older and more motherly. I was having flashes of Bellaxtrix Lestranges while watching. I also did not like the blue gown she wore to the ball. I liked the gown in the cartoon better. I also wished they put her hair up. The glittery things on her hair were a nice touch.
The star of the movie has got to be these mother of all holy glass slippers. They are AWESOME! I want one for Christmas! I’d be prism-y sick! Aside from the shoes, Cate Blanchett was my favorite. Whatever role she plays, she takes it head on.
The Prince wasn’t uh,,,as charming as I want him to be. He’s alright, but he’s lacking a certain je ne sais quoi. Then again maybe I’m just biased (Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty all the way!!!)
I also wanted to take Lucifer home. Such a plumpy cat. And so bitchy!
