This young girl's reaction to seeing Beauty and the Beast is everything

This young girl's reaction to seeing Beauty and the Beast is everything

Breathtaking. That's one word that comes to mind when many think of the 2017 live action adaptation of Disney's classic "Beauty and the Beast". To save her father, she sacrifices herself to a beast that lives in a castle and eventually they fall in love and it is revealed that he was a prince under a curse all along. They were best buddies, and that was all you really needed to know. He and Sir Ian McKellen (Cogsworth) were the only redeeming factors of the film - I only wish the "gay moment" involved the two of them.

Furthermore, the release of this film was mired in an absurd controversy regarding the inclusion of some homosexual content in the Gaston-LeFou storyline. There were new songs added to the score that blended seamlessly into the movie and in some cases added more to the story. In the past, Belle has been seen as a smart bookworm, someone who is independent for her refusal to marry Gaston (the handsomest man in the village). The heavy use of CGI may be off-putting, but the new content combined with the familiarity present in any Disney movie will satisfy audiences who can indulge in their nostalgia while admiring the mostly beneficial revisions to the original feature film.

I wasted all of spring break with the flu so I couldn't see the movie on its opening weekend, but I certainly wasn't going to pass up the chance to see Beauty and the Beast. The film, starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and Brie Larson, tells the story of a group of explorers on a mysterious island that proves to be the frightening domain of the mighty ape.

S. Korean prosecutors to seek arrest warrant for Park
Prosecutors said in a statement they had "concluded that it is in line with the laws and principles to seek an arrest warrant". Prosecutors questioned Park for 14 hours last Tuesday after she lost her presidential immunity following her ouster.

While entertaining, there is so much wrong with Beauty and the Beast. Some very conservative communities refused to show the new film.

Belle is also much more innovative in this version. In this film, he seems to be more normal, and even takes on a different occupation, as an artist.

The live-action remake fixes some of the confusing plot holes in the animated film. One of the biggest issues I think in recreating anything, an original movie, or book are matching people's true visions, and expectations of the characters. The inclusion of the explanation of the Beast's anger, how early in the movie his anger disappears, and the development of Belle's character all show their awareness for the potential effects their movie could have on its young audience.

Samsung is Going to Sell Refurbished Galaxy Note 7 Devices…Ugh
Still, we're glad that an Android smartphone maker has finally come up with a solid rival to Microsoft's Continuum feature. On the other hand, the camera may not change much, the battery life is a concern and the S8 is likely to be pricier.

I've heard some detractors claim the movie is excessively bright and overly whimsical too "Disneyfied".

"It was sort of the flawless marriage of everything that I've wanted to do", he says. With stunning HD quality, animation, and graphics, these films have proven quite successful, especially with young adults who are happy to see their beloved childhood stories growing up with them. It's really seeing those cartoon characters come to life even more. It also helped push the Mouse across $1B at the worldwide box office during last week.

I do appreciate them not making Le Fou overly flamboyant for the sake of comedic relief and instead making him more morally sound. A film worth watching for all- previous "Beauty and the Beast" fans, or not.
