Beauty and the Beast 2017 Film Review
It’s been long since I posted something in here. It really feels new.
But for a “tale as old as time”, it’s been a fresh rehash of a classic Disney movie.
Okay, there is a few new twists in the movie; if you watched the old animated movie it’s basically the same. But it never dawned on me that this is an all-star cast; I only learned about this after the cast were basically turned back to humans. I started pointing out the cast to my girlfriend. Oh, there is Magneto, there is Obi-Wan, and so on.
Basically, the movie is almost entirely a musical, with a few more new songs inserted throughout the movie. Luke Evans is fantastic as Gaston although he looks so much mature for Emma Watson‘s Belle. Emma Watson‘s casting is splendid since she captured the essence of Belle – bookish and well-educated.
As with Disney tradition, comic relief was satisfyingly abound in the movie. Disney feels all-over. Of course, you can never miss singing along the familiar songs and be mesmerized by the visuals of the movie, although I have a small comment. When the cameras pan around it made me a little dizzy. But just slightly.
It is a family movie after all, anybody can enjoy – young and old, maybe the older even more because it brings up memories of childhood when we dream of castles, damsels, and princes alike.
If only real life were like that.
