Movie Review: Disney's Cruella (2021) (Warning: some spoilers ahead)

After months of waiting, finally, we got the chance to watch Disney's latest live-action feature film. If you have been following me, you'd know how excited I was about Cruella. Seeing the trailer actually made me order a Disney Funko Pop Rides - Cruella.  (LOL) 

See my other Disney and Funko Pop Collection on IG:

Anyway, if you are not familiar with the movie, it is all about Estella, a young and genius girl aspiring to be a fashion designer. However, due to the ill-fated situation, she was forced into the streets where she soon meets a pair of young thieves who later on becomes her family. However, when Estella meets the fashion legend Baroness von Hellman and a series of revelations, she embraces her wicked side to become the mad, fashionable, and revenge-seeking Cruella. 

Here are the 5 things we loved about the movie:

1. The movie never had a dull moment. There was no room for guessing what's going to happen next. Instead, it was like they are dropping one bomb after the other. You don't need to worry about falling asleep. 

2.  The movie soundtrack was awesome. it featured songs from Queen, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Elton John, and a lot more. Here's one from Florence + the Machine. 

3. It celebrates loyalty and friendship. Family isn't about blood. 

4. Cruella had a major plot twist. We did not see that coming. Thus, you have to watch this! 

5. The brilliant character + perfect casting. Cruella was smart, talented, and strong. She is not your typical girl. She has a kind heart but she did not allow others to bully her. Emma Stone played the part really well. Can't help but be reminded of Joker and Harley Quinn.

Now, I know there is one thing that stops you from loving this character. Did Cruella kill the dogs? Did Cruella turn the dog's fur into a coat? Well, let me get it straight. No, Cruella did not kill the dogs. In fact, she adopted them. And that is a reason why this movie is a 10/10 for me.

Just a heads up -- even if this made by Disney, we don't really recommend it for younger kids. There are quite a number of self-dialogues that kids might not appreciate. For those who are young-at-heart, go and watch it. My husband is not a Disney fan but he definitely enjoyed this one. We can't wait for a sequel and see more exciting things from this Disney Villain.

Just like Cruella said, "I am just getting started, darling."
