Thoughts on Beauty and the Beast
(Spoilers if you haven’t seen the original)
Ok so I could talk about LeFou, I could talk about the dress, but quite honestly, the reason I’m writing this right now is because while those things were there, and while some really good stuff was in this movie, there’s one thing that really stuck out to me: Emma Watson’s interaction with the CGI.
Like ok let’s forget that she was in Harry Potter since she was 12, there’s no excusing the awkwardness of that Be Our Guest scene. She literally sits there expressionless the whole time, barely interacting with the food or anything.
And when Beast gets shot? She literally stands still until he comes to a full stop. There’s more, trust me but those were glaringly obvious.
For a movie so highly acclaimed and for a movie in 2017? Extremely underwhelming. Coincidentally, I watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit within the same day…. I know that’s like peak but still… IT’S 2017. We should be PROGRESSING, not sliding back so so awfully especially on a movie that was supposed to be so good.
