Hello! I thought it would be fun and interesting to start talking about movies that I see. Please do not read if you haven’t seen the new live action Cinderella movie and don’t want any spoilers, as I will be mentioning some major ones
I am really happy that Disney kept the Cinderella movie true to the original. Although there were some minor things added, such as Cinderella’s mother and father being alive at the beginning, her father was a merchant, Cinderella first meets the prince in the woods, and just simple things such as that, but really, I loved it all! There was one change, however that I didn’t like and that is that they made Jaq be a girl, changing the name to Jacqueline. And they didn’t have Bruno in it either, which was a little disappointing, but it didn’t bother me too much.
My Favorite Scene:
Oh, my goodness there are so many! I love when Cinderella and Kit first meet in the woods!!! It’s just so awesome and sweet! And oh, their dance at the ball is just beautiful! And, AAAAAH! THE ENDING!!! When Kit is disguised as a guard and he hears Cinderella singing and insists that she be brought out – EEE! And when Cinderella comes down and is telling Kit everything she doesn’t have and then says, “Will you take me as I am? An honest country girl who loves you.” And then Kit replies, “Yes, but only if you take me as I am – an apprentice who is still learning his trade.” OMGOSH I DIED!!! 😀 So, yeah, all of my favorite parts include Cinderella and Kit together. I totally ship them LOL! My mom gave them the couple name, “Kitella” Love it! Oh! I also love when Kit curls up on top of his dad when he’s dying!! It’s so sweet and touching and heartbreaking!
At first when I saw the actress who would be playing Cinderella I thought she would do okay, and I thought the same for the prince. But, oh my gosh, they were PERFECT! I can’t imagine anyone else playing them! Lilly James and Richard Madden did an amazing job! And the stepsisters were great, too! Just as weird and ridiculous as they are in the animated film. The stepmother also did fantastic! When I first saw a trailer with her in it, I thought the acting was kinda cheesy, but again, I was so wrong! Cate Blanchett does a great job at acting as the stepmother- a character that you just hate because she is so cruel.
This movie was very emotional, although I didn’t shed a single tear, I did get teary. It’s shocking for me that I didn’t cry, but I realize that my emotions came out through my body. I can’t describe how I felt exactly, but it felt like my body just died (although it didn’t really LOL) and I couldn’t move. I was just too sad to cry I guess, or maybe my mood wasn’t cry-ish. Who knows? Her parent’s deaths killed me, Cinderella’s pain of being a servant killed me, her happiness with the prince made me smile, the wedding day made me smile even bigger. And when the movie ended, I just wanted to watch it all over again! I can not wait until this movie comes out on DVD! Literally, I feel like it’s taking a year for it to come out!!! *insert crying face*
I absolutely rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars! I couldn’t be more pleased with this movie!
I hope you enjoyed hearing my thoughts! Let me know if you’d like to see more of these in the future!
