Cruella ★★★

Definitely one of the better Disney live-action movies, although that really doesn’t say much…

Emma was brilliant (x2), costumes were spectacular and the score/soundtrack were dope, but the script leaves a lot to be desired. Cruella isn’t a good person and whilst I’m glad they did address that, they just weren’t creative enough when it came to giving her a backstory. They used every generic trope and cliche imaginable it makes for an insanely boring script. There’s also this incredibly annoying lack of attention to detail in the film and an almost disregard for common sense, (the film is set in the 70’s but they use modern day security systems and communication devices for example.), but luckily the film has enough visual and performative flair to deter from the predictability of the plot and for what it’s worth, it’s good fun.
Excited for the sequel, that post-credit scene was insane…

“ The thing is, I was born brilliant, born bad, and a little bit mad. I'm Cruella.
