Cruella ★★★½

very surprised by how much i liked this. the costumes are obviously immaculate and the visuals were cool. the film itself is pretty cheesy and the VFX was laughable but i see it as part of this movie’s charm, it’s really basic but so well done.

my only issues with this is that while Emma Stone is a great Cruella, i can’t really say she gave a consistently good performance. a lot of jarring accent slips here and there. oh yeah and this is basically part of that tired trend where all the villains or crazy kooks get their own movies which doesn’t help with how this film looks. and take a read of this article. just disappointing.
