    I’m kind of getting an “eh?” feeling from this. It doesn’t look great, but it doesn’t look awful, either.

    This will flop. No disrespect but Camila’s voice is an acquired taste. Her vocals sound strained even in a :50 teaser.

    Camilla looks out of place and her singing is obnoxious. She’s straining to hit those high notes.

    The newest trailer just dropped, and I’m just eh about it. Idina Menzel and Billy Porter look great in their roles; I think they’ll be the saving graces of the film. As for Camila Cabello and the rest of the cast, I’m not so sure. Cinderella and the Prince look like they have no genuine chemistry at all, and with the music, it just doesn’t feel right for a story like Cinderella to have a pop score. The original Rodgers and Hammerstein songs are perfect. Why mess with perfection? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1NeHRuPpoM

    I think if you were to do a Cinderella musical set in modern day, it would make for more sense for that to have a pop/contemporary score than one with a period setting.

    Horrible and boring and a complete failure as a contemporary fairy tale. Porter is miscast and contender for Razzie.

    Except this film isn’t set in the modern day; it’s a period film, therefore the pop music is totally out of place. Only Hamilton can get away with a modern pop sound for a period setting, and that isn’t even a movie in the traditional sense of the word.

    That was the point I was trying to make. If you’re doing a movie musical that happens to be a period piece, you should have the score sound like something that would come out of that time period. Which is a major problem I have with Baz Luhrmann movies like Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby (even though the latter was not a musical). The fact that he incorporated contemporary music into period settings to me gave both of those movies a major identity crisis.

    Grant it, some nonmusical period films have included contemporary songs on their soundtracks before like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, and Django Unchained. But with those movies, the songs only played in the background and their directors at least weren’t trying to shove them down audiences throats. For some reason, I don’t seem to have a problem with stage musicals with period settings like Hamilton and Spring Awakening having more contemporary scores. I guess it’s because when you see a stage production, it’s easier to suspend your disbelief since everything you see isn’t suppose to be literal (like in the movies).

    I love Billy Porter but these screams Razzies.

    Critics are starting to chime in with their reviews. While Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t have a general consensus listed yet, Cinderella is currently sitting at 33% (based on 30 reviews so far).

    Looks like this is definitely going to be the subject of a future video from Musical Hell.

    Based on some of the reviews I’ve read, these are the common remarks I’m noticing from critics:

    Billy Porter is apparently the saving grace of the film

    The film’s modern feminist message is noble, but it focuses too much on it and the story suffers as a result

    Camila Cabello may not have been the best choice, acting wise, for the part of Cinderella

    James Corden is apparently the worst performance in the film, so if you’ve hated him in every other movie he’s done, you won’t like him here either

    The film is vastly inferior to both Disney’s 1950 animated version and the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein adaptation starring Brandy, particularly with the songs.

    Honestly, this doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ll still try to go in with an open mind when I do watch the film, but my expectations are very low.
