Thursday Movie Picks #467: A Different Perspective

Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share your movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


This week's Thursday Movie Picks is A Different Perspective (a well known story told from the perspective of a different character. An example is the recent Rosaline movie which is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet from the perspective of Rosaline, you know the girl Shakespeare mentions Romeo had been infatuated with and conveniently forgot about when he met Juliet)


Since I already used Rosaline as the example, I have to pick a different title, pity because Rosaline would have been a perfect pick, one that I enjoyed watching.

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (2002)
A TV Movie adapted from Gregory Maquire's (author of Wicked) book that tells the Cinderella story from the perspective of the ugly stepsister played by Azura Skye. I really enjoyed this, it was fun and I had always hoped to get a chance to see it again. Also stars Stockard Channing as the stepmother and Matthew Goode as the love interest.
Warm Bodies (2013)
In a post apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, Warm Bodies is a horror comedy romance from the perspective of a zombie. This was fun. Instead of the usual survivor's perspective, we get the whole zombie apocalypse experience from "R's" perspective, a zombie, and see what is a zombie's day like day-to-day.

Maleficent (2014)
The Sleeping Beauty story from the perspective of Maleficent the wicked fairy that cursed her. Did not enjoy this. Didn't like the story and I thought Angelina Jolie's celebrity persona eclipses the role...all I see is her the actress and not the character.

  1. Warm Bodies is an inspired pick for this theme! I enjoyed that and Malificent.

  2. This was a tough one for me. I think I went a different route but hope it still works. I enjoyed Malificent but I get what you mean. I'd like to see the other 2 as I heard good things about them.

  3. Your blog is my go-to. Thanks for your consistent excellence and reliability.
