    Beauty and the Beast is a 2017 American musical romantic fantasy film directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and co-produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Mandeville Films. The film is based on Disney's 1991 animated film of the same name, itself an adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's eighteenth-century fairy tale.

    You have to admit
    In the original during the mob song, they only sent men out. But in this one they were inclusive and let women come.
    Gaston: come on men,let's go!
    Women: hey can we come
    During the fight like half of them die
    Gaston: okay you wonder why we don't allow women to come with us, next time we go kill an ass, we won't bring them!

    Honestly the only good part of this movie is Gaston (The song) and The Mob Song.

  • Thomas takes a toll for the dark

    You know. If I remember correctly in the Netherlands the movie was titled Belle and the trailers where more Horror like. Who thinks that would be a better film?

    Once this movie came out and I posted a comment online how much of a terrible and talentless actress Emma Watson is everybody ripped me a new one. I have never really liked her since the first Harry Potter movie, and I always thought that she has no talent. It sucks that she is practically rewarded for doing a terrible job.

    the live action Beauty and the Beast was actually wonderfully made. It was beautiful, memorable, and had adventure and villains. It even had EMMA WATSON, who played HERMIONE GRANGER. What's not to love?

    If I had a choice to make this remake better, I would probably try to make it nostalgic for the people who saw the original, make it seem more like a children's movie (the remake doesn't apply to children as much as the original), and to give the characters more personality. This should be done in every remake. If you want to remake a children's movie, keep those three steps in mind.

    The thing I hate about these bullshit remakes is that they are ruining film history. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney films and is one of my favorite films of all time. I saw bits of the remake and it was so embarrassing to watch. These remakes aren't honoring the original, they are just corporate giants wanting to recycle classics because they aren't original anymore. I waited for Nostalgia Critic to talk hella shit about this shitty remake HAHA!

    That Gaston just.... I don't like the casting choice. Granted I don't like that they remade it in the first place. But, if this was done a few years earlier they could've cast Jason Isaacs in the role, that would work, or Adrian Paul. He really looked the part, I can totally see Duncan MacLeod playing Gaston. As a whole though, this movie is just awful, everything was cringeworthy, the characters were unbearable. It's like the dog you've had for years got put down, and the new dog getting shoved down your throat just chewed up and destroyed, your best custom made Belle cosplay dress then having to settle with a dollar store Halloween costume that doesn't even fit. Oh well, at least we can take comfort in knowing that the French Revolution was right around the corner so this abomination will get beheaded soon. When it comes to Beauty And The Beast.... THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

  • Special Agent Washing Tub

    Wasn't the original Beauty and the Beast published in a magazine targeted towards Women?

  • Даша Трифонова

    Actually the reboots are made not only for money but also because every 20 or smth like that the characters stop being owned by dicney. It's complicated.

    Just a thought, but maybe the live action version of beauty and the beast was meant for TEENS AND ADULTS who, given the choice, chose to never watch the original Beauty and the Beast as kids. Hell, I never watched it as a kid. I was all about The Lion King. Then, I saw Beauty and the Beast 2017 when i was 12. I. FRIGGIN. LOVED IT. I know most of the critics of the film out there are people who grew up with the original film, but that's the thing, it wasn't meant for them. For example, the songs are more subtle and moving than the upbeat songs that were in the original film, and the cast is amazing! Casting Emma Watson as Belle was a bold move, but I feel that it was a good choice. She's a feminist icon, who adults and teens are more likely to connect with. So yeah, call me crazy, but that's my theory on not just this film, but the other live action remakes as well (except Mary Poppins returns, that's more of a sequel than a remake). And Nostalgia Critic, I know you don't really like these remakes 'cause you're one of the critics I mentioned earlier, but I think the Disney remakes are damn good, and I'll defend them and their casts until my dying breath. Send comments and death threats directly to me: Dragon Lord.

    I didnt realize these flaws because I was enchanted with how amazing the CGIs are, I am too enchanted with the real-like BnB. I like the beast looks, don't like belle tho. That thing about the enchantress is the great problem of even the original material but I guess..., old time stories have a lot of unfair gods and magical punishments.

    The biggest reason why this "movie" sucked are because Disney forgot the most important part of a cartoon, and that is it doesn't have to make sense. And that is the one of reasons why this version failed, because they decided to add a shitload of sense to it just because trolls and "fanboys" bitching moaning about "plotholes" like a castle in the forest, what ever family members of servants who might not live in the castle or the prince of the land that everyone seemed to forget about. It's based on an animated film it doesn't need to make sense just because it's live. And not adding sense to it are one of the reasons why the Philippine live tv series Dyesebel (2008 version from GMA) and the (2014 version from ABS-CBN) works because they didn't try to add sense to a tv series about a mermaid named Dyesebel falling inlove with a human named Fredo (based on the Mars Ravelo comic book from 1952).

    Wow. Disney effectively killed both my pre-watching Star Wars and post-watching Star Wars childhoods. Thank you Disney, for ruining the childhood movies I loved before Star Wars, and then ruining Star Wars for me. Seriously, how can a cartoon movie meant for kids be more emotive then a live action one? Other then the fact creators back then cared about their work and put real effort into it.
