I didn't think it was all that great. If you want to see a movie about Beauty and the Beast go watch the Disney version. Because this isn't it.
I hate when Hollywood decides to muck up a great book. You know I bet more devoted to the book fans would go see their beloved books turned into the movie if Hollywood didn't chop it to pieces. This movie would have been better if they stuck closer to the book, character, story and dialogue wise.
although a remake of a John Wayne movie ( which according to my parents is sacrilege) this movie was FANTASTIC!!
the casting, directing, screenplay, the music...everything was a superb film and worth going to see
I remember back in the day when Disney Princess movies were AWESOME!! like Beauty and the beast, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Cinderella and so many more. This movie was advertised as a new Disney Classic, HECK NO! This movie was awful apart from the cool jazz, this movie was dark and had voodoo magic in it, something I would never let my kids see. So many said that Walt Disney would be turning in his grave because of Pirates , I highly doubt that, he is turning in his grave because of Princess and the Frog. Disney has strayed so far from the wholesomeness we all know and love when we were kids.
I think that this is one of the best out of the whole series, I was starting to get worried because I don't think David Yates has handled the series very well. The story grips you in from the very start ( something new for a HP movie)
there are some moments ( one in particular, but I do not reveal spoilers in my review) that reminded who was directing this film. I was disappointed. However, I can overlook those minor things, because this was close to the book, the closest it's been since Chris Columbus directed the series. two thumbs up
