    Cinderella 2015

    Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella" successfully brought out my inner-fairy tale. My inner fairy tale comes from that place where I know goodness lies, and that good things can happen, and when these good things happen you've got to hold it, embrace it with courage (and kindness). I felt this film really brought me to a place where I could engage, unlike Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods", where I felt detached the whole time.

    The amazing actors behind the roles brought me…

    ★★★½ Added

    Even though the dialogue was super cheezy, I thought this film was very entertaining. Gave me a thirst for more creative fantasy-like SciFi films. Definitely better then Guardians of the Galaxy, more intelligent, more quirks, and more originality.

    My initial thoughts of the film is that the cinematography, Michael Keaton, and Edward Norton were phenomenal. The women roles in the film, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Andrea Riseborough, Lindsay Duncan, and Amy Ryan were not as strong, like the supporting of the supporting roles (ie. Edward Norton), which was slightly disappointing, but overall I appreciated the lightness (hence bird and flying) this film carried, and how reality and fantasy blended together, using the stage as the place where the two combined. Brilliant :)

    Watching this film reminded me how brilliant Phillip Seymour Hoffman is, because I forgot he was even there, I just saw the character, Truman Capote. Which makes me sad in a way now that he's gone, but his legacy is shown through his talent and makes Capote shine. There's a lot of talent in this film with Catherine Keener, Clifton Collins and Chris Cooper, but PSH is the string that holds the story and the talent together. I feel there are going to be a lot of films made in the future that would be greater with PSH holding it together. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman!
