Movie of the Week: Beauty and the Beast

movie_gold

People, I have seen Beauty and the Beast twice now, and I’ve loved it a lot both times. I cried. I laughed. It made me super duper happy.

We all know the story, right? I have to say that I loved how faithful they were to the original animated movie, but they made it better, because they deppened the relationships and bonds between the characters, and filled some major plot holes from the animated version.

I loved all the characters and the actors playing them. Seriously, the casting was genius! Emma Watson was a perfect Belle, and I personally loved Dan Stevens as the Beast, especially while in Beast form, because he was so expressive! But Luke Evans as Gaston was brilliant and Josh Gad as LeFou was AMAZING! I loved what they did with LeFou’s character, because they actually gave him a brain and a personality.

Like I said previously, I think they did amazing with building the connection between the characters, and that’s especially true with Belle and the Beast’s relationship. There’s more moments and more talk, and actually getting to know each other in this adaptation, and YES! It was awesome.

Just to finish it off, I’m a huge fan of the musical side of this movie, and I was singing along throughout the whole movie… eheh 😀 .

I’m giving it 5 stars, for sure, because I loved it so much!

Now to you. Have you seen Beauty and the Beast?
Have you loved it as well? What are your Thoughts about it???

Beauty and the Beast: Dan Stevens and Luke Evans cast

Yesterday was a busy day for the Beauty and the Beast movie! It appears that they found the Beast and Gaston… yeah, both of them.

Let’s start with the most important, it appears that Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) was cast as the Beast (os Prince Adam), opposite Emma Watson’s Belle. I am super excited about this! I love Dan, he has an amazing presence and he’s gorgeous… I mean, have you see those eyes?!

For a moment there the whole internet was talking about how Ryan Gosling would be the perfect Beast and all I can say is THANK GOD they did not go there. Maybe it’s just me, I never saw The Notebook, but I really don’t think he’s all that much… I’m happy with their choice here.

Meanwhile, it appears that the villain Gaston will be played by no other than the amazingly perfect Luke Evans!!! I love him, love love love him, and I’m so used to him being perfectly good that I don’t know how I’ll fell about him being the cocky Gaston, but I’m sure he’ll be perfect (he always is!).

Emma Watson will be Belle!

What a great piece of news. Anything that can shine a so deserved spotlight on the amazing Emma Watson is worth reporting.
