Thoughts During Movies: Cinderella

wpid-cinderella-poster.jpg

I just got out of seeing Cinderella in IMAX, and boy do I have some thoughts. Time for another “Thoughts During Movies” segment. For those unaware, I tend to have a lot of random tidbits I think about during Disney films, and instead of a regular review, I give you my stream of consciousness to show you how the movie was for me. If that didn’t make any sense…just read below and you’ll get the gist.

  • My dad coming home would be enough…an origami butterfly is just a waste of paper.
  • Lavender Blue?! I only know the Burl Ives version (especially when sung by Ashley Brown! #OnTheRecord), but this is just charming!
  • Hayley Atwell and Lily James look amazingly alike. Are we sure they aren’t related?
  • Oscar for the Costume and Hair/Make-Up. Now. I don’t have any right to hand those out, but here ya go. Exquisite.
  • This makes me, once again, angry that when a Disney film has a “regal” quality, they only make special merchandise and amazing themed clothing for women. I would like a line of Prince, or hell, Cinderella, inspired clothes and shoes and WHATEVER! I would spend hundreds of dollars…COME ON DISNEY! Rant over.

Thoughts During Movies: The Hundred Foot Journey Edition

Distributed by Touchstone, The Hundred Foot Journey was released in theaters this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve done this, but I had a lot of thoughts during this film, so I had to let you into my brain during the film. It’s not a typical review, but I think it gets the idea across.

Stream of consciousness and possible major spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk.

  • Loving the score so far, fusion of French and Indian musical themes. Does that thought make me “musically inclined”?
  • Wow. That’s a super depressing way to start a film.
  • Okay, this first 15 minutes is incredibly slow, and if I have to hear “Papa” one more time, I’m going to explode. I may also explode on the person sitting behind me, rubbing their foot against my chair.
  • Helen Mirren has arrived, and she is a female dog. Can’t not love her, though, which I sense will be a problem for me accepting this movie.
