Braddock - The Man James J. Like most kids, Jimmy enjoyed playing marbles, baseball and hanging around the old swimming hole on the edge of the Hudson River or under the Hackensack River Bridge while he dreamt of someday becoming a fireman or a train engineer. From around the year toJim Braddock worked a series of jobs: A messenger boy for Western Union, a printer's devil, a teamster and an errand boy in a silk mill.
A beautiful retelling of a timeless story for the new generation! JordanCarrington 26 February Overview: The story of Cinderella can be traced back to early Egypt, China, France, Germany and many other countries from around the world. It was actually the first Disney film that I ever saw as a child.
I can still remember being captivated by the story and singing along with the songs. It was as though a spell had been cast upon me, but the magic never wore off at midnight. There were no words to describe the level of excitement I had when I first found out that Disney was developing a live-action film of the timeless story.
While Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent were unnecessary dark and edgy re- imaginings of their animated predecessors, Cinderella is retold respectfully and refreshingly for the new generation.
Cate not only brought a lot of depth to her character, but you could tell she was enjoying the role as the malicious stepmother. Weasley actually zapped Bellatrix Lestrange into a parallel universe. I personally believe that Disney made the right decision to hire Kenneth Branagh to direct the film and Chris Weitz to write the screenplay.
As I was watching the film on the big screen tonight, I could tell that they both approached the story with deep understanding and, most importantly, respect.
It was perfectly timed and it drew you into the fairy tale world. I genuinely hope Sandy will be nominated for an Oscar next year for those stunning costumes. Sets and Special Effects: The film itself is a visual marvel -- especially for the fairy tale genre.
I was truly swept away by the lavish sets that were designed by Dante Ferretti. The special effects were equally breathtaking, with the dress transformation and the carriage-to-pumpkin scenes being two of my favourite visual highlights. My only disappointment was the running time of the theatrical cut.
I personally believe that it should have been 10 minutes or 15 minutes longer to flesh out the story more. Hopefully Disney will release an extended cut, or include those deleted scenes on the home media release. You hear me, Disney?! Despite my issue with the running time, I genuinely believe that Disney did something right with their latest live-action film.
While the previous live-action films were all about style, they lacked substance and, unfortunately, heart. Cinderella, however, has style, substance and, most importantly, heart.
