Cruella (2021)

Summary: Although she is a strong independent wahman, young femcel Estella is struggling to make a name for herself in the catty cutthroat world of woman's fashion and she eventually turns to a life of crime.

Review: Albeit a well-acted, visually-impressive live-action cash-grab, Cruella gets some thing right. Specifically when it isn't trying to stay connected to the classic Cruella de Vil character from 101 Dalmatians. If it was just a movie about a Estella trying to find success in the fashion world it would be much better. However, as an origin story for Cruella de Vil (especially one that wants the audience to sympathize for the villain) it fails pretty spectacularly. The writing is disastrous in some places and key plot moments feel like abject emotional manipulation. Imagine trying to gaslight a 90's kid into liking Cruella de Vil. Disney is wild. That be said, if you go into the movie with no prior knowledge of who Cruella is and you also happen to care about woman's fashion, you might have a good time.

Overall I rate Cruella (2021): 4 Supreme Clay Bricks out of 10 (More than enough to wreck her car)
