Just Get Moving
23 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I agree with the people who describe the first part of the movie as slow paced and weak. It takes almost a third of it to just get to the actual plot. The first third involves the invitation to the party. It also doesn't really weigh in to well on the abuse of Cinderella. That said, we do have some decent special effects although the first effort at this story did them better. The clock business is fun but fills up too much space. Melies is sort of grinding to a halt here, but still worth a few minutes of our time.
