Plot: An adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love. Runtime: 129 mins Release Date: 17 Mar 2017
I'm rating this so highly 10 stars! because I feel it is deserving of the highest praise. To see so many reviewers berating this film is quite a shock. I don't see anything controversial about the tale as old as time. In fact, I see lessons that people of all ages can learn from. Not to judge others based on their appearances is one of those lessons of note.I wish to commend the cast and crew at bringing this to screen in such a grand and epic way. The music is beyond wonderful. I love Audra McDonald's singing, and I would love to hear even more. My favorite musical number was <more>
"Be Our Guest!" That was an absolute spectacle and a dream to behold. Emma was the perfect Belle. If I were in casting, she is the actress that would have been my number 1 pick. She is the main reason why I wanted to see this film. She sings quite nicely, and I wasn't expecting that. In fact, I didn't expect this movie to be so musical. I really do not remember much from the original 1991 animated film. I know I saw it when it came out I was a young one .I was very surprised to see so many adults, especially baby boomer/retired age in the theater too. There were more adults than children! I wonder what drew them?I highly recommend this movie if you are a fan of Disney, of musicals, of the original animated film, or Emma Watson. It was an nice refreshing breath of air and break away from our current political climate.
"Beauty and the Beast" was stunning and gorgeous. Beautifully and artfully performed. Dazzlingly colorful and charming. Fresh and lighthearted. Wonderfully and magically enthralling. I laughed, I cried, I floated along with the music, I bawled and bawled as the spellbinding elegance and splendor took me to another place and time. I was 5 years old again enjoying the Wonderful World of Magic that is Disney, as if for the first time. I will gladly spend my money over and over to see that magic unfold. I willingly and happily concede Emma Watson to be Belle, for this generation of <more>
children, instead of Hermione. She has earned her place as a Disney princess and I applaud everyone who had a part in this piece of magic. Truly, Disney knows how to make us all children again.
I went into the film not expecting much. I was quickly taken in how well this movie was done. Emma Watson is superb as Belle. The music was good the effects where very good. The rest of the cast was brilliant as well. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone especially if you have teenage daughters as I do. Tale as old as time Beauty and the Beast.
Unpopular opinion: This is better than the original (by Insaneuno)
The original Beauty and the Beast was my favorite cartoon as a kid but it did have major plot holes. Why had no one else ever seen the castle or knew where it was? Didn't anyone miss the people who were cursed? All of that gets an explanation when the enchantress places her curse in the beginning. Why did Belle and her Father move to a small town? Her mother died and the father thought it as best to leave. I love the new songs and added lyrics to the originals. I like the way the cgi beast looks just the face is CGi . I think Emma Watson is a perfect Belle who is outspoken, fearless, and <more>
different. The set design is perfect for the era in France. I know a lot of people disagree but I found this remake with all its changes to be more enchanting, beautiful, and complete than the original 1991 movie. To each his own but I think everyone should see it for themselves.
This movie is pure magic. Cast, production designs, direction, acting and cinematography is on point.This live action makes you believe that fairy tales can be real. It stays true to original and builds on it. It is much more layered and sophisticated. However,i have to agree some things feel extra in this version. New songs are really good but are not better than original ones.Emma Watson proves herself to be a live action Disney princess.The transformation is complete.She is a wonderful heroine and role model for everyone.She gives this role everything she has. I have never seen her doing <more>
this great before.Her performance is absolutely perfect. This should be a career defining role for her. Her singing was good and much less auto-tuned. Acting wise, she was a solid choice. Overall, the CGI on objects was great. All voice actors have done wonderful job. Kevin Kline is such a gift to this film. He has a tiny little song which i think he nails. THE bond between belle and her father is just loving and charming. The only drawback is that the beast looks unfinished and fake at times but Dan Stevens has done a wonderful job. His song 'Evermore'' is great and very emotional. The ballroom scene is spectacular. The transformation scene is well handled . As for LeFou, it was mistake for Disney to make a big deal about him being their first ever gay character because it is barely acknowledged in the film. There are two gay moments in the movie which are barely noticeable and are just for laughs, neither one involves Gaston. This movie just acknowledges that LGBT people exist and leFou happens to be one of them. Nothing more than this. Luke Evans as Gaston has done an incredible job and he is a lot more evil in this version. Beauty and the beast is a perfect movie and maintains the charm of original animated movie. It is really sad that some people are trying to assassinate this wonderful movie. Everybody should go and see this movie.
Emma Watson Manages to be Luminous in an Already Vibrant Film (by luvthg)
I'm utterly shocked by the negative backlash that this film has been getting from critics and the public because it's truly a joy to watch. Bill Condon has done a wonderful job bringing the beloved animated flick to life with a stellar cast, exceptional musical numbers, and jaw-dropping sets and visuals the ballroom scene had me in tears . Also, Steven Chbosky and Even Spiliotopolous deserve credit as well as they were able to conceive a screenplay that kept enough familiarity with the original to give the audience some good-old nostalgia while adding enough new details and subtle <more>
elements to keep the audience invested in what's going to happen next.The cast really carry the movie as well, with Luke Evans Gaston , Dan Stevens the Beast , and Josh Gad LeFou entertaining the hell out of me--Stevens is practically playing a completely different character, and his performance creates a new and charming Beast and damn, can he sing! . Evans is absolutely perfect as Gaston, and although I don't love his singing voice for the character, he nailed every single line he was given. Now, regarding the situation with LeFou; I really don't understand why Bill Condon went ahead and made a big deal about Josh Gad's character being gay because it's barely present in the film. Beauty and the Beast is now not likely to preform as well as it could possibly have with foreign markets in addition to a bunch of local conservatives throwing temper-tantrums spamming the film with negative "reviews" for nothing; you blink and you'll miss that "exclusively gay moment". As for Gad himself, his LeFou is charming and hilarious in his own right--he's certainly an extra viewing bonus. Kevin Kline is truly a gift to the film; he does not play a small part and he has one little song that he absolutely nails. The father-daughter bond between him and Belle is truly spectacular. As for the rest cursed objects, I thought they voiced their characters fine enough, but they weren't what was driving the film. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, this is Emma Watson's movie. And boy, does she crush it as Belle. I can assume it was tough for her to watch Emma Stone take home Best Actress for La La Land, but don't worry, Emma, because you've knocked it out of the park here. Watson's Belle is strong, independent, passionate, vigilant, and every other adjective you could add to describe the perfect modern female heroine in Disney- princess form. She is also adorably awkward at times, something understandable since she's lived as an outcast in her village her whole life. The added backstory and quirks really make this character all the more three- dimensional and they incorporate into the movie beautifully. Emma really sells every one of her scenes, and her Harry Potter days have seemed to have helped her out regarding working with visual effects and acting off of nothing. I doubt the film would be half as good if they had gotten anyone else to play Belle-- just note that about 95% of the people claiming that she was wooden in the film are either biased trolls, or more likely, people who haven't even seen the film yet.As for complaints about the movie, I have very few. Personally, it took me about 10 minutes to truly get into it because it was such a strange sensation to watch my childhood be portrayed by other people, plus all of the songs felt like really weird covers of the original songs until I really warmed to the new atmosphere. Also, they would introduce fascinating details about the Beast that they never really seemed to do anything with. Lastly, the third act is somewhat a competition between the loud and over-the-top music numbers and the climatic state of the plot for your attention. Although both are extremely entertaining, at times the third act felt a little unfocused. However, I can assure you, that the ending scene were Beast transforms is spectacular, both Stevens and Watson do a terrific job expressing the same emotions created 26 years ago.All in all, this is a wonderful movie. All the critics are kind of saying the same thing: "if the original is so great, why remake it?" and "it's just a remake, nothing more". Why does this film not deserve credit for being a faithful yet fresh retelling of the tale as old as time? In fact, it even improves upon some aspects of the original, such as how Belle and Beast fall in love just wait a couple weeks and see the film and you'll understand how . I have the answer: people simply don't want to like this movie. The original is so amazing and beloved by practically the entire planet that Disney having the audacity to come and revamp so many people's childhoods for the sake of money is, for many, very offensive--even if the movie's actually really, really good.
The remake of "Beauty and the Beast" is Disney's latest in live action animation. Blending real actors with CGI, it's a story most of us know and love about Belle and the Beast. Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame plays Belle, a simple country girl who is looking for her Prince Charming. She lives an ordinary life in an ordinary town surrounded by ordinary people. Trouble is, they think SHE'S strange. Gaston, the local hunk, has decided he must make Belle his wife since she clearly isn't interested in him. Fate, however, has other plans for both of them.Although the <more>
film was very pretty to look at, it lacked depth and simply did not have the heart the animated version had. I love Emma Watson, but her singing voice was adequate at best. Kevin Kline who portrayed Belle's father looked like he would rather be anywhere but where he was. It was Luke Evans as Gaston that stole the show. He stayed true to the character of Gaston, and man could he belt out a tune! Another problem I had is Disney trying to introduce a sexually confused character, LeFou. I wish someone would try to explain to me why this was done because, quite frankly, I am sick and tired of people trying to rewrite fairy tales just to make them "politically correct." Rated PG and even with its flaws, I would still recommend it.
I was very moved by this, maybe I was in a vulnerable state ... (by osj2507)
In any case I think this was very beautiful, following the story from the animation, really is a great transformation from animation to live action picture. The acting is good, the characters well portrayed and the visuals just as beautiful as the animation.Location, seating & time: Big Bio, Herlev, Denmark - Bio 2, row 4 seat 6, 8, 10 & 12 - 18.03.2017 at 15.15
Visuals Are a Beauty, The Charm Is A Bit More Beast (by rgkarim)
It's finally here, the live action telling of a beloved story that Disney made memorable years ago. Yes, I'm talking about Beauty and The Beast my friends, and tonight I'm here to share my thoughts. Now let's get this laid down now, I'm going to look at it as its own movie and do my best to minimize the masterpiece. So please don't cast aside the review if I tread on any ground. With that said, let's get started to see if the modern retelling has what it takes to stand out in the world. Summary: You may hear others say the movie is spot on with the 1991 telling. <more>
Not entirely true, but this rendition keeps about 80% of the Tale as Old as Time to please the classic fans, while adding some tangents to give it a twist. To quote a friend, "the new spins are built around the fans from the 90s generation to entertain". It works for the most part, adding depth to the characters and giving the emotional kick older audience members will appreciate. And while sticking to the story is good start, the next magical step is how well they brought it to life in the visuals. Beauty and The Beasts charming country side and castles, are brought out in spectacular detail via breathtaking scenery shots and detail oriented settings that are worthy of recognition. Next dress our characters in wonderful costumes fitting of the landscape, with special emphasis on the traditional Belle Dress and Beast coat that remains timeless, and you again get more magic. Finally add in the animation, realistic, fluid, and somewhat mirroring the classic style most fell in love with, and you have a great combination. Of note, there are times when things get trippy, or not done quite as well, but overall solid around. All in all, Disney's abilities to blend these elements together are impressive, and this reviewer gives them their well-deserved props. In terms of casting, there is a mixed response to the cast assembled. Again, they are not the originals which I did miss , but that doesn't mean they aren't bad just the same. Emma Watson is charming, smart, and courageous all elements we have seen just without the wand , which works for the protagonist. Dan Stevens I guess does well for the few scenes he isn't covered in CGI fir, but in his monstrous form delivers his lines with surprising depth. But it is Lumiere and Cogsworth who stole the show for me. I worried, I'd be robbed of their relationship, but that wasn't the case. Ewen McGreggor and Ian McKellan stepped up the role, delivering their well- written lines that had me laughing in delight. The rest did well, but I need to move on, so let's just say for the most part, this movie's casting was well-done. Summary: The music, a staple of Beauty and The Beast that is almost as timeless as the story. This rendition has put their own spin on it, while trying to keep the backbone of the original. Most numbers work, albeit obviously auto-tuned, with their own whim, but the song Gaston was a number I did not enjoy for everything it lacked. Ironically the original tunes I found to be better composed, packed with emotion and not seeming a diluted version, but its weakness came in how they seemed randomly thrown in yes in an effort to add more emotional develop to the cast . Overall the changes aren't terrible, they just didn't have the same bite as the classics did, unless you count shock factor from either some cheesiness/trippiness . Other changes that I didn't quite like were Le Fou's changes. Le Fou is supposed to be his name sake, the fool who is comedic relief as the joke, before getting his just desserts. Josh Gadd's rendition wasn't so much a fool, as a smart alec, clingy, admirer who made slick comments and kept his idol at bay. Again, the deeper development is appreciated, but this drastic change kind of meant his name should have been changed as well, perhaps to Petit Malin? Changes aside, the acting is capable of bringing the characters to life, but there are moments where things are a little forced. Some of the Beasts Temper tantrums, a few of Belle's stoic speeches, and Gaston's attempts to be devious, all of these hit their overacted moments at times. And while this made me laugh, there were a few conventional moments that were a bit cheesy as stated by some in the movie . Most of these coincidental moments are ignorable, but one scene in particular was an anticlimactic finish at the end where something just happened to break at the right time. All of these moments alone aren't too bad, but many of the changes brought into this film brought it more into the adult/realistic and took away from the fun, whimsical nature of the movie. The design of the characters, the emotional subplots, even the music were lacking that element of childlike fun that made the movie so memorable for me. Doesn't mean it isn't still entertaining, I just really missed that element. The VERDICT:With the big shoes the original left, this telling did a decent job appealing to many. It is a well- developed remake of the story, with a wonderful cast and setting to bring it to life and capture your heart. While the music didn't quite reach the same heights, and some changes took away the energy, this film certainly has much of the magic that rose promised years ago. Go in there with a clear mind and try not to compare, and you'll be fine. I recommend this for a theater visit as if I could stop you and hope you enjoy. My scores are: Family/Fantasy/Musical: 8.5 Movie Overall: 7.0
