    My Life as a Zucchini

    ★★★★

    Despite having so many dark themes throughout, this still remains an incredibly sweet film. It's so important for people to know they're loved and checking in on someone or reminding them that you care for them does wonders. When Simon moved his marker from a thunderstorm to a sunny day, wow, that got me good.

    They like to get the landmarks.

    This is one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen. You would think with the budget they had, they would hire better actors because, wow, this was painful to watch when almost every single line was cringe-worthy. The visuals were stunning, but there was just so much going on, everything felt so muddled. The connection to the first movie and all the references to it were awesome though, just not enough to salvage the film as a whole.

    I can't remember the last time I have been so engrossed and completely mesmerized by a film as I was with this one. Words can't even start to articulate how breathtaking this was as an experience and as a film in its entirety.

    Cinderella

    ★★★★

    Blanchett was seriously so well cast, she portrayed the evil step-mother perfectly, with both transparent grace and pure terror. Despite knowing exactly what happens, having watched the original, I still found this film to be incredibly magical, even if it was so very cheesy at points. Cinderella was so sweet and kind and wonderful, I just wish it wasn't considered normal that just because someone is kind that they should endure abuse. But I did love the emotional vulnerableness the prince showed and the added diversity throughout the film. Overall, I enjoyed this take on a Disney classic, even more so than the original.
