I went to go and see this the day after it came out, which very nearly didn’t happen. We went to watch it in Lincoln and we got in Lincoln with 30 minutes to spare and in that time we had to take a diversion, then we got stopped by the train track lights, where we had to wait for 3 trains, YES 3! I’ve never had to wait for 3 trains in a row! After that we got stuck by every red light possible and then, when we went to get a parking ticket, the machine was broke, so we had to find another one. Was it worth it? Keep reading to find out!
Beauty And The Beast is a live action retelling of the beautiful animated classic. As well as staying true to the original music with favourites such as, Tale As Old As Time and Be Our guest, but also putting a modern twist on things and adding a few new ones, which are just as catchy. Beauty And The Beast tells the beautiful adventure of Belle, a bright, stunning and independent young woman, who finds herself take prisoner by a beast in his castle. Belle learns to look beyond the Beasts hideous front, and soon realises the kind heart and soul, of the true prince within, whilst making many enchanted friends in the castle, along the way.
I loved loved loved this! The best film I’ve seen in a long time, and my boyfriend liked it too, which is saying something if a man liked it. Everyone just seemed so real! The detailing is incredible, from the way Belle’s statement yellow dress falls along the floor, to the detailing of Cogsworth. The actors were well chosen, and perfect for each character, I think we will see a lot more of the less well known ones, in the future. It is visually remarkable and I couldn’t of pictured it any better, a bit scary in places for little ones, as there were a few tears in the cinema, but I love the darkness they are adding to these remakes. I love how they didn’t try to change it too much, just update it a little.
I honestly don’t have a bad word to say about this film, it met all my expectations and more! All the way through I felt like bursting into song and there’s no doubt it takes me back to my childhood, when I would watch it on video constantly. Coming from a girl who’s favourite Disney princess is Belle, I would definitely recommend this, and would pay to go and see it again. It’s a must watch, and I will be purchasing this on DVD!
My Film Rating: 10/10
