“Cruella”–movie theatre review–a few words about ‘normal’   1 comment

There are only 2 reasons to see “Cruella” and they are 1) the soundtrack and 2) Emma Thompson. The former is a great mixture of previous hits and the latter is a delight in her various costumes and looks! Otherwise I would say skip it!

This is my second week of going back to ‘normal’ after 15 months and normal was going to see, in most cases, a good movie matinee in a movie theatre and then get a late lunch. For various reasons normal is not as great as it had been. Yes, I love seeing a movie on a large movie screen instead of a TV screen no matter how big!

The first 2 movies I have seen on a movie screen have been losers. In a sense streaming has spoiled me in that I could fast forward over many scenes that I didn’t like or were boring and I loved that I could subtitle all films as I have found that many times I will miss important scenes due to the sound being very low.

A perfect example of both is that last week’s movie “Port Authority” makes my videos look like  Oscar winners as not only was most of the soundtrack  too low to hear but the photography was so bad most of the movie was unwatchable. The fast forward button on the first film would have gotten a workout because “Cruella”, at 2 hours and 16 minutes, was about 45 minutes, at least, too long!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that next week “In The Heights” will take me back to the normal—a good movie–of enjoying a film on the big screen and not feeling I am missing something watching a movie on a TV screen!

  1. I haven’t been to a movie in so long I forget what it feels like.
