      I don't care what you say this was an awesome remake (I've lost count of how many times I've seen it) I love the the original I know it off by heart I know the scripts to all the disney movies but I still love this and Emma watson does an awesome job and she is a good singer and he was just saying my daughter odd that's dumb why would he say his wife was.
      and the beast has been a beast for so long he has to remember how to be a prince again and be charming and she's tired because they're slowly becoming what they've been turning into which is an interesting take because they just kept running around in the original but it helped that, that was animated.
      And if you were turned into a super heavy wardrobe and piano (which the doorways aren't wide enough) coupled with the fact they're slowly loosing their human sides you'd have a hard time moving around too and you could bring up the same point with the original about why the wardrobe was upstairs she's a wardrobe who was previously human you just have to accept it.
      and the rose if you're life revolved around a magic flower you'd panic about someone touching it too and start yelling loudly and quickly and gaston clearly points out when he's asked "then why did you offer to help me if you don't believe me" "Because I want to marry you're daughter" that was his motivation in the original too gaston is just an egotistical jerk.
      and locking up belles father is still showing gaston's cruel nature, and the beasts song is awesome and heartfelt and you could point the same loophole out from the original saying the beast could have been like "Well since you're happy here and we're in love and it's a giant castle just bring your father to live here, you guys get a new home the curse is broken, you get away from the villages and gaston and for shits and giggles since I'm royal I can have the people who were mean to you executed"
      and the enchantress was a bitch in the original too because she cursed an 11 yr old (if you do the math) for being spoilt how else did you expect a child prince to behave who was all stranger danger go away you could have at least gone with candy over a rose, and punished the servants for a child's actions she's a psychopath in both stories.

      Channel Awesome I was done with the movie after the library scene. In the good one, he was so excited to give her the library, he made her close her eyes and even worried about her peaking...in this thing he’s a dick about it, and the library isn’t even impressive...and to hell with that ending, it would’ve been a little less awkward if her dad was in the room instead of the hobo enchantress. At least she knows her father

    While I agree with everything you said about this remake, I disagree with you opinion about Greatest Showman.
    It wasn't perfect, and didn't accurately follow Barnum's history, but it was still an enjoyable movie for me.

    I am in the LARGE minority, but I really would love it if Disney made a prequel to Beauty and the Beast: STARRING the Beast. I know The Enchanted Christmas showed flashback, but a whole movie/series about that would be damn awesome. And since he was basically 11 years old, it would be odd but still interesting to see. A spoiled Disney Prince, who is also a child, residing over a Kingdom. It sounds like an idea that sounds stupid on paper but the execution would be amazing. We could also see what happened to his real parents, if he has any at all.

    Personally I really like the remake even with it's flaws and the songs my favourite and my favourite song in this movie is Gaston and I like the addition of the part where the lumear and the others turn into real ananimit objects as the last rose falls

    One thing to remember: In the original, The Beast became The Beast when he was literally 11 YEARS OLD! The last petal was to fall by his 21st birthday, and Lumier referenced being cursed for 10 years. Last time he was human, he was a kid. You can actually SEE it in The Beast's childish attitudes and body language at multiple points in the movie. I've never seen anyone else actually reference this. Kind of makes the Enchantress more of a dick, doesn't it?

    Something that’ll make you hate it more?
    Beast doesn’t even get his own “I love her” line.
    Yeah.
    Towards the climax, when Cogsworth asks why the Beast let Belle go, in the original, Beast says, “Because...I love her.” It’s the first time it’s ever said aloud. It shows the audience that he is well aware of his actions, and its consequences.
    The remake gives Mrs. Potts the opportunity to tell the Beast (and everyone else) how he feels about her, robbing his character of what should be the culmination of his arc. It’s his deal, Mrs. Potts. Nobody asked you.

    I lose interest in this movie as soon as I learned that Emma Watson was playing Belle. 🙄
    Regardless, however, this remake in general feels FORCED. Especially since the original was already good and did NOT need a remake! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Anyone surprised that animation is more expressive is a fucking idiot.

    I'm sorry, but when it comes to showing emotions on a face animation will always beat live action unless an actor has one of their best performances of their career.

    Animation, once you're inside the "universe" ad it's "rules" is completely in sink.

    Live action simply doesn't have this. The emotions on the faces of actors simply don't completely match the environment in many cases.

    A person's fear isn't shown as well in a situation that calls for it because they're not actually afraid. They're perfectly fucking safe(as they should be).

    A person having his heart broken isn't as expressive because obviously the person isn't going through great emotional pain. Especially Japanese anime is amazing in showing this.

    This mixing of cartoon and live action is just awful imo because both have strengths but when one tries to do what the other is good at it just falls flat.

    LotR was amazing with it's battle scenes. Have that in animation and it's just "cute" for example because it's just not as impressive as in live action.

  • Thing 1 & Thing 2 The Media Maniacs

    My Mom enjoys this Disney Remake in fact when I was watching Disney's original Beauty And The Beast yesterday she asked why I didn't like The Remake and got INDIGNANT when I simply said I thought the original is way better. I hope she never sees The Disney Remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King out of fear she'll like them as much as the originals and get indignant when I point out that the originals are way better Although to be fair I didn't think The Lion King Disney Remake was as bad Disney's previous remakes But it wasn't good either

    I loved the original animated 1992 Beauty and the Beast growing up and it's still my favorite. When I saw the live action, I was okay with it since it had elements from both the animated classic that I love and the broadway musical. I was excited that the Beast got his own song as Belle is leaving to rescue her father.
