Beauty and the Beast: Love Still Conquers All

Beauty and the Beast
Starring: Emma Watson and Dan Stevens
Rated PG

Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.

I guess there are two kinds of people now those who love the new live adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” and those who hate it.

Some will tell you that this film is uninspired and lacks the charm of the original Oscar-winning animated film, adding it's not worth your time to see.

But if you're a romantic and love the fantasy of the story, I think you'll be pleased with the film and the way it was adapted including the deeper backstory.

The film does have pacing problems and the CGI work needed to be better but, all in all, the film will please most audiences.

Beauty and the Beast” will not make you forget the original animated film, quite the contrary, it will make you appreciate it much, much more.

The film gets a B and is rated PG.

I will bet you didn't know that there have been several live adaptations of "Beauty and the Beast" including one from 1946.
