I have this version on DVD! In fact, I watched it a month or two ago and it was very cheesy to be honest.
Also, the song in the beginning of the movie sounds like it was sung by Lacus Clyne (from Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny).
Andrean Libman. Wonder how she feels about them misspelling her name.
Does anyone remember this one anime version of Jack and the Beanstalk where they ripped off what I think is a Carpenter’s song? I saw it once as a kid, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called. There was an evil queen and the princess was drugged a lot or something. Sorry it’s so vague 🙁
Hey here’s a fun fact about the original Cinderella. The original translation is closer to “fur slipper” than “glass slipper”. And really, a fir lined slipper makes a little more sense than trying to walk on a shoe made of glass.
It also kinda changes that whole “the prince is looking for the fur slipper that fits just right” thing just slightly now, doesn’t it?
Why is “Into the Woods” the only adaptation that included the part where the ugly sisters mutilated their own feet to fit the shoe? Or the part where crows peck out their eyes?
Really, Junko Mizuno’s Cinderalla is still the best version of the story where Cinderalla is not only topless for 80% of the comic but it’s also about the prince being a popstar zombie and her fairy godmother turns her into a zombie for a night to meet the prince. Also instead of a glass slipper she leaves her eyeball with him specifically so he can find her. So it has all the maidens gouging out their eyes to prove they were the one the Prince fell in love with. It’s a good time.
I wish I never Googled Junko Mizuno. Innocent and childlike art twisted by sexuality and gore, all coated in enough pink to scar your corneas.
It’s the best, isn’t it? ;D
Just like Puella Magi Madoka Magica
By the way, is it just me or am I the only person who hates Puella Magi Madoka Magica with a bloody passion? It’s too cruel and mean-spirited, the main protagonist Madoka Kaname is a wimpy scaredy cat, and Kyubey is an over-obsessive stalker who forces the main characters to do unnecessarily brutal stuff. Also, I hate how it has basically single-handedly overshadowed the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise, which is much, much better in my opinion (especially the first 3 seasons [Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A’s, and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS] and the movies).
There is a version where instead of the glass slipper Cinderella accidentally leaves her broken tooth. It’s called Cinderella in the Far West. Made by the same people who created Puss ‘N Boots. Although it is a little better than their previous films, but the key word here is little. Would love to see the review of it, if you’ll find it suitable. But even if you don’t, I’ll still recommend it for rifting with friends.
Hahaha, this is one that, while I wasn’t waiting for it, I’m definitely glad it got covered. Frankly, Cinderella is the absolute dumbest goddamn fairy-tale out of all of them. Seriously, as you (and thousands of others) have pointed out–NOBODY had the same size feet as Cinderella? And again, since in multiple versions new and old point out that “Cinderella” is only her cruel nick-name imposed upon her by those evil step sisters, we don’t actually know her REAL name at all. I guess it was Elizabeth, shortened to Ella, then they saw she was dirty from cinders and called her CINDER-Ella? That’s all I can figure if you want to really stretch it…
And the fact that this is such a shittily made version of it–even though it’s closer to the original story than the Disney one (though I’d have loved it if they’d included the mutilation they did in the book, like slicing off their toes and ankles just to fit into the glass shoes)–that it makes it all the funnier to see you cover it. The fact that EVEN THE MOVIE knows the shoe plan is completely idiotic is absolutely hilarious X’D
And what in the hell is with THAT ending for the evil step-sister? Hahaha, that’s so ridiculous. I like your version of the ending much better.
Awesome t-shirt, Phelous. BTW, the Angry Video Game Nerd called, and he want’s his Game.com back.
Disney’s Cinderella from 1950,which also opened with the opening of a book, was the very first Disney movie I remember watching at a young age. No joke.
3:04- “Well, that’s just prime.” Oh, and Happy 20th Anniversary to Beast Wars.
7:22- According to the 2015 movie, Cinderella’s real name is Ella.
15:40- And I thought you were gonna show Beauty going “GASP.”
Thank you for bringing back the “You stick!” clip from Killdozer.
18:42- “All the single ladies, all the single ladies! All the single ladies, all the single ladies! All the single ladies, all the single ladies! All the single ladies! Now put your hands up!”
I remember a few Cinderella stories where the father was present. In one, he married a woman of wealth who died. I think Cinderella was the oldest child from his wife’s previous marriage & not his, so he used her as a house maid. If I’m not mistaken, this was the opera version. In another version, the father considered his dead wife’s child to be a burden & gave them to his new wife’s kids as a servant, & both he & the widow were broke & remarrying for money. He got a job as a merchant to make more money & was always away from home.
That Tommy Westphall joke. XD
I guess the Prince just doesn’t dig chicks with tubular perms & bangin’ bangles.
I get such a kick out of your editing. You’re right up there with LittleKuriboh in Abridgment Lulz.
The shitty violin music. XD
Loved that grim ending you tacked on. ::giggles::
BTW, looking forward to Defenders of the Realm & the return of Halloweenie latter this year ^.^
Yep, that sounds like the Rossini opera, which is really a lot of fun. It actually corrects a lot of the issues that Phelous had with this version as well. She and the prince meet before the ball (when he is disguised as a servant) and he likes her because she is the only one who is kind to him. There’s no magic, and instead, the court philosopher, Alodoro, gives her a dress and clothes to wear. The step sisters actually do recognize her, although they keep insisting that it can’t be her because it just wouldn’t make sense. The prince actually knows where to look for her, although the step father tries to pretend that she is dead, and rather than a glass slipper, there is a matching pair of bracelets.
Yeah, that sounds like the Rossini opera. It actually corrects a lot of problems that Phelous had with this version. First, the prince and Cinderella meet and start to fall in love before the ball. Through most of the opera, the prince has switched places with his valet, and Cinderella is the only person who is nice to him. The sisters keep fawning over the valet (disguised as the prince). There’s no magic, and it is actually the court philosopher, Alodoro, who gives Cinderella a dress for the ball (although in at least one production I saw, they made him an angel). The prince knows where to look for Cinderella and has no trouble recognizing her, but her step father tries to pretend that she’s dead, and there’s a pair of matching bracelets instead of a glass slipper.
Oh, and Cinderella has a name in that version, as well, Angelina.
It’s the BEST version. Apparently too good for an animated adaptation, most likely overlooked BECAUSE it cut out all the magic.
Cinderella Invents Halloween is my new favorite “Phelous fucks with the animation” moment.
What the heck is with these movies and thier soundtracks
I remember seeing footage of this film in the Goodtimes intro.
2:14 that was amazing!!
5:10 works in on so many levels
Oh PULEEEEEEZE sing Single Ladies again; PULEEEEEEZE!!!!
Thank you for now making me compleatly unable to look at Cinderella the same way; I’ve barley noticed any of these problems. Gosh!! Also, loved it when you called out the dad 🙂 Great review (love the shirt, by the way)
Oh, by the way, found that Ice Queen film I mentioned in comments section for Alice in Wonderland and others: yeah it’s a short but I still think it would be great. And that sleepy narrator? Yeah….found out that was Sigourney Weaver…oops…
My favorite character is Cinderella’s father! I think he did a really good job!!!
Phelous, can you start saying “I’ve got a shotgun” and “they’re the best” again?
By the way, I posted this to a video of Lupa’s, but you should check it out too:
Oops, forgot to mention: great work as always. Keep it up!
Maybe the shoe was magically rigged to only fit Cinderella’s foot?
Then again, the prince would have no way of knowing that, so I guess his plan still doesn’t make any sense.
Silly Phelan, his name isn’t Humperdink, it’s Christopher Rupert Windermere Vladimir Carl Alexander Francois Reginald Lancelot Herman Gregory James.
