Have courage. Be kind.

downloadI 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.

Disney-Cinderella-Shoes-964x644The 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!
