Cruella ★★★½


Fuck it, this movie rocks. Emma Stone is incredible, the costumes are amazing, it looks great and the soundtrack's cool, if a bit excessive at times (why am I not surprised they played "Sympathy for the Devil"?). A lot better than it had any right to be.

Did I mention how good Emma Stone is in this movie? MY GOD SHE IS SO FUCKING GOOD!

The Joker comparisons were not unjustified (they play "Smile" for fuck sake), but hey, who doesn't love a good spiritual successor?

It's not perfect; it's too long, some plot points are beyond ridiculous and did we really need to know that Cruella got her name from a car?, but some times a movie just hits all the right spots.

I hope this teaches Disney to be more bold with their live-action remakes. I won't get my hopes up.
