I had so low expectations for the new Beauty and the Beast movie that I actually ended up enjoying it. This doesn’t make it good.

The problem with it is that it’s a remake of a movie that is already perfect, which makes it totally pointless. I’m not against remakes but why would you remake something that is already very good?

Spoilers below.

In the case of fairy tales, less is more. Somethings should be left implicit. The original movie could suggest a lot in one single scene, the new one seems to think that it has to explain everything. I really don’t have to know that Belle’s mother died because of the plague. Like, I really don’t have to.

All of this excessive information about the characters create the illusion that they’re more multi-dimensional than their animated counterparts, but I don’t think that this is the case. The characters aren’t especially deep in either version and they don’t have to be, but the original characters had warmth and humanity to them, everybody was more spirited in the older version.

I think this has a lot do with the older version being animated. Things like the personalities of the inanimate objects or the excessive narcissism of Gaston are really hard to get across in a live action movie.

The song Beast sang after Belle left was horrible and unnecessary and it was full of self-pity and it completely ruined what was a beautiful touching scene.

But the biggest problem of the movie is Emma Watson. She can’t sing. The only facial expression she has is “I understand your agony and I pity you”. She can’t do someone in love or someone angry. She tries but it’s kind of tragic that an animated version ended up having more personality than hers.

There are some stuff that was better in the new version. I think the tragedy of the situations of the servants in the castle was far more felt in this one; and what was effectively their death scene was the best scene in the whole movie. I think the close mindedness of the villagers was also more developed in this version, which I’ve liked. I’ve liked the new versions of Maurice and Le Fou better, though I didn’t like the backstory with Maurice. I’ve also liked how the villagers recognized their old relatives who were turned into objects, that was a nice scene.

Belle wasn’t good, Beast wasn’t good, Gaston was passable. All in all, it isn’t that good and you don’t have to see it.

toastweasel  asked:

30, 37, 57, 72, 97, 99 :)

30: What’s your favorite candle scent?

There’s a currant and lime leaf candle by Archaeology that they sell at Target, that’s my all-time fave candle scent. (My only complaint is that they don’t sell it in a diffuser or a wax melt.)

37: Do you read a lot? What’s your favorite book?

Well, you probably don’t want to hear about First Aid for the USMLE, so I’ll assume this means fiction. I read as much as my free time allows. :) I don’t have a single favorite book, though. Anything from historical nonfiction to steampunk fantasy is fair game.

57: Do you take shampoo and conditioner bottles from hotels?

Not for myself, frankly because I have yet to find a hotel shampoo/conditioner that’s worth using, let alone stealing. I will take that stuff and donate it to toiletries drives at school or work, though.

72: Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts?

Neither. Tim Hortons. (What? I live in a border state.) If you force me to choose between those two, it’s a veeeery narrow win for Starbucks, just because I like “classic” espresso beverages instead of java-caramel-mocha-coolaccino whatever. I don’t care for Starbucks brewed coffee, though, so the win goes to Dunkin there.

97: Dark, milk or white chocolate?


99: What’s your zodiac sign?

I’m not one to regret. I’m the kind of person who believes everything happens for a reason, that every single person who crosses paths with you, was meant to. But you’re giving me a hard time believing there’s something good about you. No one has ever hurt me as you have, no one has ever made me feel like I want to give up in this life. You have caused an incredible amount of pain, thinking about you makes me ache. So when someone asked me a few weeks ago “what do you regret the most?” I couldn’t help but think about the day I decided to talk to you. I couldn’t help but wish I wouldn’t have.
