My Thoughts:

-    This a very cute and charming movie, but it wasn't as amazing as I thought it would be.

-    I loved the twist on Sleeping Beauty that Maleficent brought to the screen, and I was hoping for a great twist on Cinderella, but I was disappointed. This was a pretty classic Cinderella story. 

-    While charming, it was a bit corny. I was hoping this movie was for adults as well as children, but I felt it was geared more towards kids.

-    Since it was corny and nothing new, I kinda wish they had just done the Rogers and Hammerstein's version.

-    The whole movie was a feast for the eyes! The costumes, the sets, and everything was visually stunning.

-    The cast was perfect! I loved Lily James as Cinderella! She was perfect. The prince wasn't too shabby either. I love Helena Bonham Carter, but I wanted more of her! 

-    It has always bugged me that Cinderella forgets she is nobility. She isn't a servant! She is a lady! It doesn't matter what her stepmother thought. I wish she had walked up the prince and said her name was Ella and she was lady of the house.

-    Ella put up with a lot. I agree that is good to always be kind, but you shouldn't let others push you around either. 

-    The mice were cute, but again, a little corny.

-    I love how they used the song Lavender Blue. I remember that song from my childhood, and I've always loved it. They changed the lyrics a bit, but I stilled loved it. 


  1. I've heard good and bad about this movie. I think it's a Netflix movie for me. I won't be spending money to see it.

  2. I can see where you're coming from with the corny part of it. I liked it, though. But, corny stuff, in this sense, doesn't bother me usually, especially in fairy tale movies. I don't know why. But, I agree the casting was perfect!

  3. I'm still a fan of the good old-fashioned fairy tales, so I hope to see this one soon. :) The costumes look amazing from every picture I've seen.
