An analysis on Prince Adam

The marriage between Adam’s parents has never been a particularly happy one. His father is greedy and selfish and payed little to no attention to his wife and child. The marriage is an arranged one, not made for happiness. Adam’s mother is fierce and loves her son into oblivion. Whenever The Prince gets angry (he has a horrible temper) she nurtures her son who always gets scared when his father yells at him. To make him feel better she holds lavish dinners and balls to distract him from his father’s anger. Adam, of course, also has the servants who help The Princess in raising the boy as his friends. He considers them family. But when his mother dies from a long sickness he loses his whole life. His father, now having more control of his heir, keeps him at his side at all times, trying to make him into the son he wants. God forbid he disappoints him. When he returns from lessons or simply spending time with his father with a new bruise forming his friends bow their heads in shame and say nothing. The Prince feels betrayed by the ones who were supposed to be his protectors, his family, his only friends. His father’s words start to get to him. He’s useless, too soft to rule, too forgiving. He’ll never be enough. From this stems his distaste for other people than himself. He’s learnt the lesson the hard way. No one will ever love you but yourself. For years no one touches him but his father, and those moments are when he is terrified. Simply a brush or look makes him crawl inside his walls and hide in fear.

so Stanley

this man planned to end up dancing with the love of his life.

a dance where no one else switched but his pair and LeFou’s pair just conveniently switched AND mixed up the genders? that’s kinda sus.

and look at his face during the switch. where LeFou’s was surprised, Stanley’s was focused. focused into the eyes of the man he was with. for someone who accidentally switched partners and mixed up the genders, that’s not the face I would expect.

also the way the switch happened looked like the gender switch was completely intentional, like their dance partners were completely in on it.

tl;dr: the way the switch happened was hella sus and Stanley totally planned to make it happen bc he just loved LeFou that much.

Two days later…

There Gaston sat slumped and shoulders hunched in his chair by the fire, depressed as ever before. Lefou remained unsure whether if he was going to be able enough to get his best friend out of this lump. You were the one, the one he has been looking for all along. And just like that, you were ripped out of his life for the end of time. Gaston was going to need longer than two days to get over you. Gaston wasn’t talking either, which was defintely unlike him. And when Lefou attempted to breach conversation, Gaston snapped and took his frustration on the wall by throwing his knife in the heart of the deer on the wall.

My thoughts on BatB 2017 - Part 4: What I Loved

Part 1: The Songs | Part 2: The Ending | Part 3: The New Scenes | Part 4: What I Loved | Part 5: Things That Bothered Me

Ok, to be honest, I loved most of the movie, but here are some things I especially appreciated :).

* MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD *

Dan Stevens as the Beast
Dan Stevens is to die for in this movie. He is amazing in all his scenes - even when his face is all CGI and you can only hear his voice and see his eyes. After the backslash the CGI Beast received (some reviewers even called him “too much of a distraction”) I feared the worst but I actually think that the CGI is very well done - especially the close-ups - and his face is amazingly expressive, which (I believe) could not be achieved with prosthetics/make-up.

● Emma Watson as Belle
I actually liked Emma a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Her singing voice is sweet, though not very powerful, but as I’ve stated earlier, I really do not think that Belle (as a character) has to be an accomplished singer (unlike e.g. Ariel) and personally, I do not care whether her voice (or anyone else’s for that matter) was autotuned or not. She sounds pretty good to my untrained ears.

The prologue

“Shall I join you for a dinner this evening?” - “Sorry, not this evening.” - “Busy?” - “No…”

I really loved the Beast’s portrayal as a well-educated person who forgot the joy reading brings and finds his sense of humour. I am sure there are some things that could be problematic regarding the change of the Beast’s character, but I will leave it to other reviewers. Overall, I was very happy with the changes and I also loved that he is still that melodramatic dork we all fell in love with in the animation and in the Broadway musical. Also, I am super biased because I loved Dan Stevens’s performance so much.

LumiereXPlumette and CadenzaXGarderobe loving relationships. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off about these ships :).

● Instrumental version of “Home” from the Broadway musical plays two times during the movie: first when Belle is shown to her new room and later when Madame Garderobe helps her to dress for the ball.

Belle slipping under the elaborate gown Mme. Garderobe put on her.

Belle planning her escape and making an improvised rope.

The stakes are higher for both the Beast and the servants. Similarly to the Broadway version, the servants are slowly becoming more and more like lifeless objects as the curse progresses. And the castle crumbles a bit every time the rose loses its petal. So, if the curse is not broken, the Beast is doomed to remain in the crumbling castle and completely alone.

All the book references and book quotes. I wouldn’t mind if there were more :).

Beast throwing a giant snowball at Belle. (Also, I am pretty sure Belle got her payback for this the next winter XD)

“I set her free. I am sorry I couldn’t do the same for all of you.“
THIS. This right here is such an amazing moment that I’ve been sorely missing in the animation and the musical. The Beast acknowledging that he fucked up his servants’ lives as well and he actually apologizes for that. #character development

Gaston shooting the Beast with a gun (but actually having a crossbow prepared as a plan B as well).

Belle destroying Gaston’s arrows. And while we’re at it, her line “Where is he?!” (aka “WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY BOYFRIEND YOU ASSHOLE?!”) was SO VERY COOL.

“I am not a beast.”

Gaston actually recharging his gun (although it does take him impossibly short amount of time given the type of the gun).

The coat-stand/Chateau saving Chip’s life. I cry every time I see it.

● Mrs. Potts’s name is revealed to be Beatrice :D Much Ado About Nothing, anyone?

“How would you feel about growing a beard?” - *the Prince laughs and growls*

I’ve stated before that I am not ecstatic about this exchange as I would prefer if she asked his name or made a book reference or something but…the backslash this dialogue received is so unbelievable and so unfair. Some people interpret it as “oh no, she’s trying to change him already!” Like: hello? This is Belle we’re talking about, she would never ever mean it like that. And some fans go as far as to claim that it’s a confirmation of Belle being a furry? Are you kidding me?! I think that this conclusion tells more about the people who make it than the scene itself.

Belle is simply teasing him, testing his reaction, wanting to know if behind a different exterior he is still the man she fell in love with. Which is actually pretty sweet.

(Besides, did nobody notice Lumiere literally smouldering after he kissed Plummete? So they made the fact that there were some side-effects of the curse left in them canon.)
