A wonderful compliment to all that preceded it, fleshing out the story and connecting plotpoints that were overlooked before.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
November 5, 2018
A virtual clone of the 1991 animated feature, with a few added scenes and songs that strengthen rather than detract.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

The first of this new live-action Disney fairytale cycle that's not even pretending that there was some other compelling reason for a remake other than to score a big box-office off of generational nostalgia
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5

If you're looking for something that is even the slightest bit different from the animated version, you'll be underwhelmed by the familiarity of the film's construction while dazzled by the stunning visual beauty.

Condon's Beauty and the Beast delivers a strong female lead, but fails to break out of its nostalgic trappings.

There seemed to be little reason to remake a film so vital to Disney's history. If the original film was a tale as old as time, this new version is a tale as old as nostalgia.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Diehard fans who have watched the classic over and over again growing up will take issue with some of the most classic shots, moments, and even dialogue from the original not making it into the film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

This remake squeaks by because it does a decent amount of justice to the original, and since the original is a masterpiece... well, your heart can't help but melt, can it?

Take your niece, your daughter your next door neighbor's daughter, heck your mom -- and relive this tale as old as time. Believe me, no one will be gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

But the film is so good, so magical, and so well-directed that a lot of those problems felt like minor nitpicks by the time its two-and-a-half-hour runtime had completed.

Enchanting affection is woven into every visually lush scene.

Disney's effort to turn their animated wonders into live action slogs continues apace with Beauty and the Beast, an ugly mess of cartoonish CGI.
May 14, 2018
Still, even though we know how the story pans out, Condon's picture is a pleasure to watch, thus proving, if you ever doubted, that a thing of Disney can be a joy forever.

Was Beauty and the Beast worth the admission price? I'm inclined to say yes. It'll take you back to how you felt the first time you watched it and put in a few new things to keep it feeling fresh.

Beauty and the Beast hits all the key notes you'd expect while fixing a few of the original's less-logical affectations that wouldn't fly so well in a modern live-action movie.

There's a lot of brave Hermione Granger in the new Belle. [Full review in Spanish]

Bill Condon keeps thing visually interesting enough that you'll still be engaged even while suppressing your urge to sing along with every word.

A lot of this movie feels like more, but not necessarily better. It just feels like extra.
