“Ever since we were kids it’s been drilled into us that our purpose is to explore the universe, you know? Outer space is where we’ll find the answers to why we’re here and where we come from. It’s like everyone’s searching for these answers 800 million miles away and the truth is the answers are right in front of us… I know why I’m here.” “Me too.”
Guys, seriously, don’t listen to the negative discourse surrounding. The majority of it (and when I say majority I mean 99.99% of it) is unfounded. It’s one of the most visually stunning movies I’ve ever seen. The clothes were pretty accurate for the time period, and the music was AMAZING. The ballroom scene was so stunning and beautiful with the set and the clothes and the music and effects that I started sobbing. Also I got some serious Feysand feels and wow did that make my crying worse. The whole thing was just amazing. There’s a song that the Beast sings called Evermore and it just reminds me so much of Rhys and I really wanted to punch Gaston because I was thinking of Tam the Tool the whole time……anyway. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR. GO WATCH IT. IT’S AMAZING. DON’T WORRY ANOUT THE DRESS, IT ACTUALLY LOOKS AMAZING ONCE SHE STARTS DANCING.
so the movie wasn’t perfect but it was magical and I really enjoyed it! I still don’t understand why they didn’t use any of the songs from the broadway show because the broadway version is so perfect but the new songs were pretty good.
-They fixed the issue with the Beast’s backstory. I won’t get into it but it was very well done
-More character development!
-Ewan McGregor as Lumiere. I was kind of worried about him since he himself said he thought he did a terrible french accent but I thought he was wonderful
-Dan Stevens as the Beast was great. He made the Beast feel more human
-The backstory with Belle’s mother. Loved it
-LeFou. I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil anything but Josh Gad did amazing in this role
-It was a visually stunning movie
-Actually hysterical at parts
The…Not so Good:
-The dress was still ugly. it looked like a cheap prom dress
-The beginning of the movie felt very much like a shot for shot remake of the cartoon but then it diverted and became its own thing
-I wasn’t really feeling Emma Watson at first. She definitely grew on me as the movie went on but I would not have been upset to see someone else in the role. Also her singing was…fine. I couldn’t tell if I liked it or not. I still think they should have gotten someone who had singing experience though
I imagine they’ll turn the villain into a protagonist, just like they did with Maleficent. We’re getting all of these live-action adaptations on Disney properties, yet they still won’t make Tron 3. In my opinion, Tron 3 seems like it would be a much better project than Cruella.
Geektyrant’s Joey Paur on Disney’s upcoming project “Cruella”, spitting truth once again.
And wow. It was AMAZING. Seriously, it’s put me in the best mood and I can’t stop grinning. Reasons why it was so great?
it is so fucking pretty like holy shit the scenery and the colours and the costumes and the magic/special effects it’s one of the most visually STUNNING movies I’ve seen in a while
HAYLEY ATWELL AS THE MUM HOWEVER BRIEFLY BEING HER USUAL FLAWLESS SELF OFFERING THE MAIN THEME OF THE MOVIE IN A BEAUTIFUL HEARTBREAKING LITTLE SPEECH
the romance is done so well, developed more so that it’s not love at first sight but it’s still very fairytale-esque and just CUTE AS HELL LIKE THEY ARE BOTH ADORABLE CUTIES WHO ARE A BIT AWKWARD BUT ALSO HELLA GORGEOUS
Cate Blanchett as the horrible stepmother with an actual moment that gives you a touch of sympathy before you go ‘nah you’re still a bitch through and through’, but a+ because “are you threatening me?” - “yes”
did I mention the costumes
is it inappropriate to mention the really obvious junk on the all the males with said costuming considering it is a children’s fairytale I feel like it is but I couldn’t help but continuously notice Richard Madden’s in particular oops I’m going to hell
but yeah the casting of the leads is fab because Lily James is just so genuine and the most lovable creature while Richard Madden is charming but also believable and almost dorky and with emotional depth with his father and stuff
the fairy godmother in Cinderella should always be a bit eccentric, as anyone familiar with the musical version might particularly agree, and Helena Bonham Carter delivers without being over the top about it, she’s quirky and stunning as per usual but with a hella outfit to top it off
the transformed animals keep a few characteristics and just look awesome
THE PRINCESSES AND BALL GOERS ARE RACIALLY DIVERSE AND GORGEOUS AND ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
and that goes for general members of the kingdom too, POC can be found throughout which is a fucking relief - isn’t realistic portrayal of half-magical half-realistic worlds great?
EVERYTHING WAS JUST WONDERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL AND 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND
I mean admittedly I couldn’t help but think how it would be even more adorable if Kit’s character had been a girl, just because it is the ultimate fairytale setting and would have been so adorable with Ella and some beautiful but dorky princess but hey Richard Madden did such a great job that I have no complaints it’s just that a raging bisexual such as myself can’t help but think about these things
