Your carriage awaits you.....
On 3/13/2015 I was cordially invited to attend the royal
ball and meet Prince Charming; ok I didn’t get to meet him although I really
want one now after the movie. On opening day I went to see the timeless classic
Cinderella movie turned into a live action film by Disney.
If you have not seen Cinderella in it glory at the theaters yet I hope that you soon will. It was really fun to watch a movie that I watched as a child come alive on the big screen.Throughout the movie I was running the original in my head as the one on the
screen in front of me unfolded as I thought it was the same but it was not the
same same and I think for me that is what made it a really great movie.
The parents of both Cinderella and Prince Charming played
more of a role in this movie. It was nice to see the background of the parents
and how Cinderella came about being left alone with the wicked stepmother.
(Spoiler Alert) The beginning will tug at your heart strings. This movie did have some really sad moments and more then the original but Prince Charming who had more of a role in this
movie as well, which I was not disappointed made up for it with the parts
in the film that were such how sweet kind of moments some almost cheesy but that is what made it really fun
to watch and sometimes comical.
Introducing new actors into the world of films, this was
nice that the majority of the characters were fairly new to the scene of the
movies that we have seen on the big screen lately, and could possibly help launch
the careers of these fresh faced actors/actresses. I was not to familiar with
any of their previous works on film if any but I think that was another aspect
that was enjoyable was I had no idea what to expect of these actors; rather
than the established ones where they have their trademark roles. I also noticed
that Hayley Atwell who plays Agent Carter in the Marvel Universe was in it as
Cinderella’s mother and Stellan
Skarsgård who plays the Grand Duke in Cinderella plays Erik Selvig in Thor.
Nicely done Marvel and Disney nicely done. While writing this post I had to
google who Richard Madden was the fellow who played Prince Charming, because
for some reason I thought he looked familiar, and low and behold he is on Game
of Thrones, I have only seen on episode of the show and am very slow to binge
on it at the moment.
The dress, the
iconic blue dress that Cinderella’s Fairy god Mother transforms her into was
gorgeous! I don’t always use that word but when I do it is for the dress in
this movie. After seeing how Disney went about the dress and the beauty of it I
cannot wait to see what they come up with for the dress in the Beauty and the
Beast live action film. The colors, the transformation in the movie, the
dancing in the dress the hair do, made the ball scenes and dancing with the
Prince one of my favorite parts of the movie.
For me it was
refreshing to watch a simple, fun, happily ever after kind of movie, no violence,
action, drama, or what has been hitting theatres lately. Don’t get me wrong I
am a big fan of action movies, superhero movies, some kick butt moments, but it
was nice to see a fairy tale that stayed a fairy tale one with a happy ending! This movie for
me was fun to watch, I made an attempt to Cosplay my movie going outfit a
little, with sparkly silver shoes, earrings that said dream, blue top and of
course my tiara.
Have you seen
Cinderella yet? What did you think?
