Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast Is a Charming and Modern Take on the Disney Classic

I am reviewing this movie as a stand alone movie with little comparison to the Disney animated classic most people are used to. Providing you with info of this movie and how entertaining it is rather than compare the two will give you more insight on what to expect and if this live action movie is worth watching at the movies. 

Any story translated from animation/comic/video game to live action I look for one thing: How close they are on likeness in looks and mannerisms. Anything else regarding the movie is fair game. You can change the story, how it ends and begins, back story, etc. They picked a great cast for this movie. The casting of Le Fou played by Josh Gad and Lumiere played by Ewen McGregor were spot on in my opinion.

Review: The Lego Batman Movie is Fun, Entertaining, and Extremely Nostalgic.

Let’s just say that the ads around L.A. It is hard to walk down any street in Hollywood without seeing a poster, overhead billboard, and also commercials all over TV advertising this film.
