Beauty and the Beast review and rant

So I just got out of Beauty and the Beast. So here my opinion seeing as my family’s reaction is to say “you need to let other people have opinions to.” as they ignore me.

I liked:

The opening scene. In fact it’s one of my favorites. The costumes are divine and the choreography is excellent.

The fight scene. OMG I couldn’t breath during the fight scene, every time I thought I stopped laughing I started again.

That one guy smiling when Madame Garderobe dressed him up. Little things make me happy okay. Leave my nb child alone.

Madame Garderobe. All time fave. She and her husband are adorable and my fave ship in this movie. Audra McDonald should have been cast as Belle. Yes I’m salty but that’s for the next part.

Agatha/the Enchantress. I enjoyed how she kept appearing throughout the film.

Gaston. Gaston is at the bottom of my list of villains  (who I rank by song). But Luke Evans and the ensemble managed to make Gaston’s songs my favorite out of the movie.

Lefou. I will fight people for Lefou. He is my son now. The part in the ending where he gets to dance with another boy made my heart swell.

The jewelry they paired with the yellow dress was so pretty and I’ll take two ear cuffs please.

The Potts. I love how they showed the spell made Mr. Potts forget, but even then it was still farmilar

The spell. Yes 8/10 on the world building. The edits to the spell were👌👌👌

The cast. There are so many talented people and such diverse ages and skin colors and ugh I want that ensemble to show up at my funeral and sing me to eternal rest okay that ensemble needs an award.

Things that make me salty:

Emma Watson. This is gonna take a while. Look Emma I love you okay, you are a great Hermione but as Belle well you were missing a certain je ne sais quoi.

Namely stays. And to anyone who tries to tell me that stays or corsets are antifemist, all I can say is: Do you (expect women to) wear bras every day? Because what Emma Watson was doing was basically running around braless.

Honey every other woman on that set was wearing period accurate clothing right down to the underpinnings and the fact that you had a defined bust instead of a smooth front was very obvious. You stood out and not in a good way.

The yellow dress. *insert long line of expletives* GLITTER GLUE?! AND TEAR OFF SKIRT?? GO SIT IN A CORNER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’VE DONE!!!!

 *deep breath*

The yellow dress isn’t all bad. It moves beautifully and the color is gorgeous.


I could see the zipper in almost every shot. The neckline didn’t lie right. What fabric did they use for the bodice? (Seriously this looks like the monstrosity The Play Moms tried to force me into back in 5th grade.) The glitter glue was as obvious as the lack of stays; (I don’t even give a shit about the panniers that almost every other woman was wearing; just are you kidding me with the stays.) Especially next to the gorgeous embroidery on pretty much ever other costume. The tiers are the completely wrong era and the the silhouette is ridiculously modern.

And then she rode off in her formal attire. And RIPPED THE SKIRT OFF!!!! I’m sorry but as someone who is personally handstitching an authentic 18th century outfit FUCK YOU DO YOU KNOW THAT’S MONTHS OF WORK??!!!! AND WORTH ABOUT AS MUCH AS BELLE’S ENTIRE HOUSE???!! Belle would have known that. Clothing was handmade and a lot more expensive so formal wear wouldn’t have been worn on a ride through the forest!

you have a movie where every one is gorgeously costumed in fairly accurate garb and then your heroine looks like you bought all her costumes at a Halloween Express. Emma Watsons singing. She’s not bad. But next to everyone one else she’s obviously an amateur  (also her technique made me want to scream. Your mouth needs to be rounded not flattened). Seriously I could have done better. In case you couldn’t tell I wouldn’t have cast Emma as Belle. Nope. Audra is my Belle it is mycanon. That Lumiere and Cogsworth weren’t a couple. Cursed!Mrs.Potts and Chip are gonna give me nightmares just saying. Why was everyone speaking with a British accent? They’re French? In France? Speaking French? Like they didn’t even have her be born in England and move to France nope evidently England conquered France when we weren’t looking and everyone in France now speaks with a British accent. In the end it was an enjoyable movie. I would watch it again. But I’m SO tempted to start doing historical costume out of spite.

hello. I was reading your fic with exr where a person cough up flowers if their love is unrequited, and this quote "Sometimes they were carnations. Red like him" made me remember somtg: In portugal, we had what you call the "carnation revolution" in 1974. It is considered the most peaceful revolution. What began as a military revolution led by the army, quickly became a mass movement of civil unrest - part 1

part 2 - a revolt by idealistic young army officers quickly turned into a popular uprising when the troops were joined by jubilant crowds, They took less than 24 hours to bring down Europe’s longest-lived dictatorship and signal the end of the last colonial empire in Africa. It became known as the Carnation rev bc a flower vend. distributed carnations between the people and soldiers, almost no shot was fired, EVERYONE had a carnation in their gun or clothes,  "It was a coup like no other,“ recalled Swiss journalist Werner Herzog, who reported on the revolution."The atmosphere was more like a party,” “It was the most original revolution of the 20th century,” veteran Socialist politician Jose Magalhaes told a parliamentary gathering. I JUST… Enjolras would’ve loved this. Sorry for the spam :) i just found it very symbolic that you chose that flower when it means so much for the freedom of my country. YES, WE GOT OUR FREEDOM LIKE THAT!! OK NOW i’m thinking about this revolution and Grantaire being the one distributing carnations ahaha :D

Ohhh my God this is actually amazing. For one thing, I’m the biggest slut for hearing true revolution stories, nothing ever gets me more excited. It makes my boyfriend roll his eyes because the moment I hear the word ‘Revolution’ It’s like my neck snaps backwards to attention and the kill bill sirens begin to play!

Secondly, I’m huge on history. Especially- you guessed it- history that involves revolution. But managing to successfully protest without violence is such a rare treat and it warms my little pacifist heart!

This is an incredible read, thank you so much for sharing. 

And for the AU- imagine street merchant Grantaire falling in love with the idealistic soldier, the Hanahaki begins and to solve his overabundance of flowers he begins to sell them on the street. When he begins coughing up too many carnations to sell, he starts giving them away- at the exact same time Enjolras’ revolt is starting.

Enjolras falls in love with Grantaire during the uprising (the carnations becoming a talking point for the both of them- Enjolras is just so perplexed, how on earth does he seem to have more every day when he gives out so many? Where on earth are they coming from?) The flowers stop the same time the revolution does- due to overwhelming success, Enjolras can now focus upon other things. Like how the flower vendor has suddenly stopped selling flowers, is smiling so much brighter, and is selling paintings of the uprising on the street.

Today is 4/25

4 plus 2 plus 5 is 11

there are 3 numbers, 11 / 3 is 3.6

remove the decimal and you get 36

36 days forward into the year is May 31

May 31 is also known as 5/31

5 plus 31 is 36

36 / 3 is 12

there are 12 months in a year

There are 3 complete season on the Julian calendar (cause new year is halfway between winter)

12 / 3 is 4

There are 7 days in a week

4 x 7 is 28

There are 52 weeks in a year

52 / 28 is 1.8

round that up and you get 2

add one for the extra day in a leap year and you get 3

A triangle has 3 sides

Time and the calendars were created by the Illuminati confirmed

Asgsibdyjkv have you seen all those "emma stone made history by being the first woman to win best actress while wearing givenchy since 1954" articles????? There have been loads about viola and mahershala breaking legit walls and making history but emma stone is apparently history making for wearing a damn dress 😂😂😂

oh my god the reach

The thing I like about art history is that

everyone keeps going on about how there’s shitposts everywhere on this site when we’re forgetting that some guy literally submitted a urinal to a museum for a gallery, painted a fake signature, and actually got it displayed there that’s currently worth millions of dollars like if that isn’t the pinnacle of all forms of shitposting then I suggest you take your memes elsewhere and rethink your life choices
