Cruella (2021)

Cruella is a dive into the story behind the puppy snatching villain of 101 Dalmatians. The story follows Estella, Cruella’s original name, and how she came to embrace the Cruella inside. From her childhood, to finding Jasper and Horace, to her distaste of Dalmatians, Cruella offers insight into each of these areas.

JJ oozes disappointment and declares his love for sadistic villains. Mattson watched this with kids and the bias comes through. Javier gives examples of how Cruella could have been more efficient. Ian just plain didn’t like it.

    Yeah, did not really enjoy this movie, loved the pod episode, always thought Ian says “some shit” because his intro is after Mattson and Javier and “some shit” just flows so well after those two haha!

    Yeah Disney has been really slacking on villains and I definitely agree with you guys that some people just are bad and do not need an explanation as to why. I mean I don’t need Cruella to have a “reason” she likes furs, dogs have fur she’s a bad person and 2+2=4 and that is all I need. I do think all the recent clap back Disney has had from their increasingly annoying fan base contributes to watered down villains for Disney.

    Sidebar, yes please to a worst movies pod. That would be AMAZING!! As always keep up the great content!!

      Alec as always thank you for the comment. Ian’s catch phrase certainly didn’t start out that way but it most certainly has evolved into exactly as you say haha. Yeah Disney’s desire to please everyone no matter what has started to show in very unpleasant ways and Cruella definitely is an example of something great taking a hit.
