I usually put A Date With Reviews only but I love Beauty And The Beast too much to do it the regular way. I saw this movie, sometime last month, in a cinema.
It was beautiful. I loved every single piece of action and the story, it made me feel as though I had never really encountered Beauty And The Beast before. Like screw you, all you poorly written animes and ill-told motion pictures I’ve watched in my life!
And it was a musical! Now, y’all know I’m a huge sucker for musicals. I got my huge Gleek award to show for it.
Emma Watson is a beautiful actress. Okay, before you roll your eyes at me and say, duhh. I never watched Harry Potter, I read the books instead. That aside, she is a phenomenal actress. I’ve never seen her act before and when I finally did, it was like, where have you been all my life, Emma?
The songs were amazing. My favourite was and is obviously Beauty And The Beast. Did you know that it was sung by John Legend and Ariana Grande? I literally screamed when I found out. Now y’all know John Legend is like chocolate cake to me. Second favourite was ‘Be Our Guest’.
The acting, in general was very phenomenal. The chemistry among the actors was everything and you know what I say about chemistry. It’s very important. The Beast guy was very impressive, just the right amount of angst, romance, fairytale and to be honest, he looked way better than I imagined the Beast would look. Did you know that he had to dance on stilts? That’s crazy and very professional. The characters were truly phenomenal.
The number of times I covered my eyes or got scared though. Quite a lot but if you’ve seen my reviews of Central Intelligence, Suicide Squad, When The Bough Breaks etc, you would know I take all the awards home for ‘always scared during a movie, even if it’s not that scary’.
The set was incredible. I would give anything to just explore the set and the location. It looked breathtaking during the movie and I’m sure, it’s even more in person. The costumes were a solid A, even though, I’m not sure if I essentially liked Belle’s yellow dress but that’s aside.
Before I digress and spill all the juice in this. You need to watch Beauty And The Beast before it leaves the cinemas. No, it’s not babyish, childish, too mush or whatever. It’s essentially perfect.
And as a bonus that I know you will enjoy! Watch the song’s video – Beauty And The Beast Song by John Legend and Ariana Grande on DisneyVEVO’s YouTube.
You’ll feel all types of good giddy, it’s a guarantee!
