    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.

      OK, Cinderella and Jungle Book are actually great remakes. This one was just........meh.

      +Jonathan Wallis Christopher Robin and Maleficent are not remakes. I enjoyed Pete's Dragon (I was surprised) and which version of the Jungle Book are you referring to? As an aside, I've enjoyed all of them (they predate Disney).

    • Jonathan Wallis
      Jonathan Wallis 21 day ago

      Channel Awesome for “Favorite” remake, it would probably be either “The Jungle Book” and “Christopher Robin” (if that even counts as a remake).
      For “Least Favorite” remake, it would definitely be “Maleficent” and “Pete’s Dragon.”

    Was anyone else bothered that both Belle and her father, apparently both Parisian natives and now living in a provincial French village, both have British accents? I know it’s actor choice, and it really shouldn’t bother me, but Lumiere outright says, “after all miss, this is France!” I know what the setting is, they put more emphasis on it in the live-action, and yet, two Brits. The cartoon got away with it. This one doesn’t.

    One thing that did disappoint me about this movie is I have always wondered who Belle's mother was. They have her in this movie, but they don't even bother to give her a name and her story is about as pointless as the damn book that the Enchantress gave the Beast. Its like why have her there just for a 5 second scene where she dies of plague? Belle can't even talk to her and have any proper closure. The scene Belle shares with Maurice in the beginning was good. It was a heartfelt moment....why couldn't they have expanded on that and given her a name?

    Would anyone else want to see Disney do a NEW movie with HAND DRAWN 2D ANIMATION? I guess because cg was so innovative everyone just moved on to cg, but some of Disney's most beloved movies are animated masterpieces. Traditional animation deserves a comeback compared to these lifeless remakes.

    I love both the original and the remake I'm a major Disney fan and I know every script off my heart Emma Watson does an amazing job as Belle and the beast while a tiny bit stiff is still awesome he acts like a beast at times while remembering how to be a prince again I have no idea how many times I've watched and rewatched both the original and the love action but they're probably pretty close in number 😊😊😊

      And he was a douchebag he openly laughs and encourages everyone else to and the only gay person in the new one was lefu the prince just wanted a bunch of hot women to gawk at and to dance with

      Well while the set up for her is a bit flawed I can over look it because she cursed an 11 yr old in the original which what did she except of a spoiled child prince with apparently no parents

    • lili ks

      what did you think about the old witch in the beginning ?
      in the original version the witch / enchantress knocked at prince's door and asked for shelter . the prince was vain and cruel, since she was old and ugly he refused to help , that's when she turned into her real self and cast the malediction on him , to teach him a lesson , the moral of the movie ( beauty that matters is inside)
      in the live action though , the enchantress BREAKS IN . from the get go , there is no proof of the prince's selfishness , i mean there are even black people and lgbt people dancing with him in his palace in the middle of the 16th century (which makes him a PRETTY COOL prince) . the enchantress basically breaks into his home and just punishes him , he is portrayed as a victim and not like a douchebag .

    Its funny, because the original mrs. potts, Angela Lansbury, was also the original Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd, (which also has a seemingly unimportant beggar woman like this movie). And this Mrs Potts, Emma Thompson, also played Mrs. Lovett in a concert version of Sweeney Todd, amd the person who plaued the beggar woman in that was, oddly enough, Audra MacDonald.

  • Patrick House

    I remember in the first few minutes of watching the film, I was so angry. The stained glass sequence of the original was minimalist, beautiful and showed rather than TOLD the story in about a minute, while this remake dragged it out and made it huge and fancy when we didn't need to be. Out of the whole film, the only thing that was finally explained was WHY the servants were cursed as well as the Beast/Prince. Oh, and why nobody remembered that there was a Prince and a castle nearby, lol. Gastons character and even his death were weak as hell. While I don't care about them making Lefou gay, I did question why(to get peoples attention, I guess???)and I was so let down by the remade songs. The amazing and animated "Gaston"was just Olaf from Frozen hopping between tables, no heart or soul.

    This show's Lumiere is actually better. In fairness to the movie, the permanence part of the curse was in the original too. And why tell Belle about it? Would putting emotional pressure on her really be effective at inducing her to love Beast?

  • Trey Blevins

    I think I would disagree with the Critic's assessment of the library scene. I'll first note that I haven't seen this remake; however, with the obviously different pacing of this movie, it's clear that they were going for a slower build up of romance between the beauty and the beast. Making the library scene start off as an off-hand gesture of friendliness from the beast to Belle, in my opinion, *is* an improvement FOR THIS MOVIE. By not making it a grand gesture from the beast, it could show how disconnected he's become from other people, not relating well to others, not being able initially to fully comprehend how magnanimous the gesture is received by Belle.
    I think they could have even gone further with it, to be honest. Maybe Belle could have first discovered it on her own, while she still thought the beast was crude and vulgar, and the beast finds her in his library. He is enraged, as (in this story) very few women, or none at all, actually read, so he would naturally assume that Belle isn't going to appreciate his beloved books. When she proves to him that she is genuinely awed by the library and his books, he relents, cautiously allowing her a small amount of freedom within his library. She would see how much he cares for his books, how important they are to him, and that could have been the start of affection between the two, bonding over literature. That could have been an incredibly moving scene.
    Overall, though, this movie looks like a terrible disaster.

    There were things I liked and disliked about this film. The design of the castle was amaaazing, the costumes were fabulous, and I liked some of the story additions. Dan Stevens was a great choice for the prince/Beast, but the decision to go with the awkward cgi was a mistake. He should've been in makeup. I didn't like the lack of expressiveness in the servants' cgi design either. Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, and Audra McDonald were all great. Everyone else in the secondary cast was only so-so. Lumiere and Cogsworth need BIG personalities. Overall, it was just another Disney live action remake that was okay but didn't really need to be made.

    I did this musical 12 years ago. I danced onstage and sang my heart out. We didn't need a million-dollar budget and famous actors to sell tickets. Granted, the performance could have been better, but there were plenty of scenes where you could tell there was genuine tension, sorrow, and love conveyed and- dare I say, FELT- in the performance.
    I avoided this movie's release when it debuted out of fear of what they may have done, which they did. This is my first time actually seeing it reviewed, actively avoiding the reviews of the movie as well. I am.... I cannot commit to words the emotions of negativity I feel.
