Beauty and the Beast (2017) 
Beauty and the Beast - Review
3/4 stars

"Forever can spare a minute."

The best way to describe 2017 "Beauty and the Beast" is the same thing I said about Cinderella (2015). If you seen the 1991 version then you've seen the new one already.

To be fair, I liked this movie way more than Cinderella. Just the musical numbers and the stellar voice acting was one of the highlights of the film. Sir Ian McKellen and Ewan McGregor both steal the show.

Oh and if Josh Gad isn't the worst or annoying part of your movie, then you done something right. He's was pretty damn in this. Same thing with Luke Evens as the cartoon villain which fitted nicely in this type of universe.

While I still prefer the idea of the Beast being more practical rather than CGI, but Dan Stevens still gave a solid performance as the character.

Beside the obvious set designs and noticeable autotune, it's visually stunning and had an old fairly tale vibe to it. This is the closest thing we got that almost re-captures the magic of the 1991 film.

I had a lot of fun with this live adaptation. What's not so fun is the next live adaptations lined up. Like, seriously Disney? Well it's gonna make money anyway.
