Why the 1997 Disney Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” is the greatest movie ever made
Brandy is Cinderella
Remember Brandy? No? She was a big deal in the 90s because SHE’S WONDERFUL
She’s so sweet and wide-eyed and beautiful and strong and curious and exactly what Cinderella should be
She’s the QUEEN of back-handed insults
She also takes NO SHIT from bros
This movie is so fucking COLORFUL (and I don’t even mean the casting -we’ll get to that) - like, they just use every fucking color that is visible to the human eye and splatter them over the sets and costumes and it’s GREAT
WHITNEY HOUSTON IS THE MOTHERFUCKING FAIRY GODMOTHER
THE START AND END OF THIS MOVIE IS JUST WHITNEY HOUSTON FLOATING THROUGH THE AIR SINGING AT THE CAMERA
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s music is re-orchestrated to have this weird 90s pop/R&B twinge (so many synths) and it’s so bizarre but also really wonderful?
Just in general, the orchestrations are amazing - they clearly spent half their budget on the orchestra
They clearly didn’t spend much money on the set - I’m pretty sure they filmed the whole movie on a disused part of Disneyland but it’s perfect.
OKAY LET’S TALK ABOUT COLOR BLIND CASTING
THIS IS LITERALLY THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF COLOR BLIND CASTING - NOT ONLY DID THEY MAKE A DIVERSE CAST BUT THE CASTING LITERALLY MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE AND IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE THERE IS NO RACISM IN FAIRYTALE LAND
The King & Queen are Whoopi Goldberg and Victor Garber and they have an ASIAN SON
Like, THESE TWO PEOPLE PRODUCED THIS GODLIKE KEN DOLL OF A PERSON (it makes zero genetic sense and is my favorite thing about this movie)
Seriously, who is this guy and where do I get one?
This actor was basically never in anything else which is a fucking CRIME because he is BEAUTIFUL and a WONDERFUL SINGER
Speaking of wonderful singers, Bernadette Peters is the step-mother. That’s right, Broadway superstar, Sondheim’s muse herself, Bernadette Peters.
And for no other reason than being Bernadette Peters, she sings “Falling in Love with Love” which isn’t even from this fucking musical (though it is R&H’s) and dramatically swoons onto couches
She also has one white daughter and one black daughter and they are both terrible and perfect
What even is the wallpaper in this movie? Seriously, pay attention to the wallpaper.
And the costumes in the movie. Especially during the ball when the dresses all go swoosh!
Inexplicably, George Costanza is the prince’s servant and has a completely random and bizarre accent.
“I wish there was something between us: a continent” is the greatest rejection line ever
This movie is genuinely funny at times. All the actors are too good to get bogged down by cheesy dialogue
Ugh, that scene in the garden. I s2g, this was the most romantic thing to me when I was 8
Seriously, this prince is the dreamiest prince you’ve ever seen
Oh man, the special effects are so bad.
Whitney Houston singing and floating away into the aether is maybe my favorite film ending of all time
IN CONCLUSION: WATCH THIS FUCKING MOVIE. IT IS A FUCKING DELIGHT.
Clean/textless version of the cover for the PSVita release “Taisho
Alice ~all in one~” which ported all four games into one. I think the overall illustration does a very good job of
giving you a feel for what the game is like: inspired by multiple fairy tales but above all, mostly drawing from
“Alice in Wonderland”. Lots of choices for routes here!

literally the characters are my children
Rose: precious klutz and obsessed over anything that has to do w/ fairy tales but is still savage af without trying- plus she’s got cute shoes and face so I was sold first glance
Astoria: The over bearing mom figure of the five, the classy and over achiever but she’s still my favourite hot mess. Her hair does cool shit.
Joy: don’t underestimate this bean bc she might not be bright but she knows a thing or two about class and good taste in men (and frogs!) she’s also adorable js
Hawk: The try hard pretty boy who is constantly being bombarded by his grandma with various princesses and brides to be but we all know he wants Rose to be his choice but his grandma hates her so wow he’s just gonna play hero until then
Travis: basically Nathanael from Miraculous Ladybug, pure, shy, artsy, tries to be cool but isn’t, but his grampa wants him to be a fighter not a lover and it triggers him so much that he has FURY MAGIC
Vicky: can’t have a show w/o an antagonist and Vicky at least has brains and better comebacks than most. She’s also independent and DONT NEED NO PRINCE CHARMING #blessed
LingLing: still can’t get over her name oMG but she’s still precious and bADASS AF LIKE SHE IS SO BOLD AND CONFIDENT LIKE WHO DOESNT WANT TO BE LINGLING HONESTLY SHES A GODDESS
