MOVIE REVIEW | BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (2017)

Friday, March 31, 2017


Growing up with Disney movies - princesses, animals movies - I become one of those people who believe in fairytale. Yes. You read it right. Knowing that one of my favorite childhood movies became a live action movie, played by some of my favorite actors, I'm very very excited. Fairytales do exist.

I love the original film (1991) still have the VCD, and yes, still watching it until now. For me, there's something about Beauty and the Beast that really taught me to be more than just kind. Belle is nothing like a weak girl. She is a strong, independent woman. She likes to read and has this ability to see something deeper, more than it actually looks.


As a little girl, I thought it was silly to be falling in love with some kind of horrific animal, but growing up as I am more understand and be able to pull the story together, I think there's so many great things to learn about her. She's willing to sacrifice herself for her father, she believes there's kindness inside Beast's heart. 

26 years later... Emma Watson and Dan Stevens became a part of my childhood - well, probably everyone's childhood. I am pleased to say that the casting team did great job! For me, none is better than them to portray those characters. Even Luke Evans, who at first I thought would be too mature-looking and buff to be Gaston turned out to be the best Gaston ever happened. The rest of the casts are good as well: Kevin Kline as Papa, Josh Gad as LeFou, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and the cute Nathan Mack as Chip, I love everyone in this movie.
