Sometimes I play video games.

Kenneth Branagh's breathtaking live-action remake of Disney's unforgettable classic, Cinderella, rejuvenated all my magical memories of the 1950s animated classic! Personally, I believe Branagh's version to be a wonderful tribute to the original, bringing the classic tale alive with lavish costumes, opulent set design and gorgeous special effects.

But until I saw Oh My Disney's wonderful Cinderella mash-up video, I didn't realize just what 'shot-for-shot' similarity the two movies actually share. Once you watch it, you'll see how striking the parallels really are, uniting two films separated by 65 years of movie history!
