I guess people still do write fairytales, we just call them “fantasy” or “science fiction”… which is fine. I guess fairytales are kinda for kids, except the old ones usually have a pretty morbid moral attached to it… One thing I am kinda sick of is all of the modern retellings that have been happening in the last two or three years. Can’t we write NEW fairytales? I guess there have been a couple TV shows that try to make modern fairytales… Maybe they just aren’t very good? I haven’t heard a whole lot about them.
Anyways, what’s inspired this little fairytale rant is last night me and Diana watched the movie “Ondine”, which is basically a fairytale, and I really enjoyed it! One thing about the movie caught my attention. You can pause that movie at ANY time, and you have an AMAZINGLY beautiful picture. Like, surreally beautiful! I don’t know a lot about cinematography, but I do know that they really captured the idea of modern fairytale in the way they shot that movie. It’s a very beautiful movie!
OK! Have a happy monday! WEE
