There's a lot of brave Hermione Granger in the new Belle. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Despite the lack of surprise, there's an undeniable magic about seeing these songs sung by real humans, or in the case of "Be Our Guest," a slightly more human-looking candelabra.
February 22, 2018
A lot of this movie feels like more, but not necessarily better. It just feels like extra.
February 20, 2018
As a whole, the production doesn't hold a candelabrum to Kenneth Branagh's lovely 2015 version of Cinderella, to say nothing of the 1991 Beauty original.
February 15, 2018
Nearly every detail is lifted verbatim from the earlier picture, minus the finesse or joy. This is not a movie at all, it's an overzealous dress rehearsal.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It's a very excellent, faithful adaptation, with a couple of differences in a live-action version.
January 23, 2018
While there are a number of things to recommend within this live-action retelling of 'a tale as old as time' ... the movie, as a whole, feels strangely inert.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

This is the best live action remake of a Disney movie, if not one of the best remakes of anything ever.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Our family watched Beauty and the Beast separately . . . but we all had the same reaction: We loved it. Disney excels in creating movie worlds, and to create this one they decided against straight live-action and incorporated 1700 visual effects.

This might be a "tale as old as time" but it is the new technology that makes this better than the original

... extremely entertaining. [Full review in Spanish]
December 27, 2017
Aforementioned imperfections notwithstanding, Condon and his team have breathed new life into a "tale as old as time."
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

In time, Belle sees past the Beast's dreadful visage - a puzzling CGI-generated furry blankness that suggests bad taxidermy more than fearsome ugliness - and her love solves everything.
December 8, 2017
Unfortunately, the more "real" the movie tries to make everything appear, the harder it becomes to ignore that the necessity to their falling in love isn't particularly romantic
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
December 5, 2017
Small shortcomings aside, Beauty and the Beast is a splendid remake. Even today, its themes regarding finding love and beauty from within a person and not for social status and appearances resonate
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 1, 2017
From the "poor provincial town" to the dazzling ballroom, the movie is a larger-than-life feast for the eyes. Emma Watson's Belle is smart, progressive and"not a princess."
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
November 25, 2017
The retelling stays true to the animated classic...
November 4, 2017
Director Bill Condon's remake improves on the original in some ways while retaining the silver screen magic, spectacle and nostalgic kick necessary for fans to fall in love all over again.
Full Review | Original Score: A
November 1, 2017
What essentially works for 'Beauty and the Beast' is its relevance.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 27, 2017
Beauty & The Beast is every bit as good and joyous as its original inspiration. A must watch for sure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
