Beauty and the Beast: A Creditable Live-Action Remake of a Beloved Classic [Review]

The original Beauty and the Beast, the 1991 animated version, is one of the five best animated movies of all-time; it was so good that it became the first ever animated movie to be nominated for Best Picture by the Academy Awards. With movie studios going through their vault of hit movies and remaking them, it was inevitable that Beauty and the Beast would get a live-action remake sooner or later. And thanks to the advances in creating special effects that make the unimaginable look more realistic than ever, along with Disney coming off a string of successful live-action remakes (Maleficent, Cinderella, Jungle Book), the studio fast-tracked remaking the “tale as old as time.” Even though the narrative of this Beauty and the Beast is uneven at times, the movie, as a whole, hits most of the right notes. I would say it’s difficult not to compare this live-action remake to the near-perfect animated movie; but, in reality, there’s just no way around it.

Finding Dory: Little Dory Was Hella Cute, So When She Was Sad I Just Teared Up on Reflex [Review]

How nice it is to finally see a movie that isn’t a comic book or video game.  It’s been a while.  I don’t remember Finding Nemo at all, except that I’d been impressed by it.  I’d meant to see it again for context but I didn’t, so Finding Dory has to stand on its own.  And it really did.  Finding Dory was strong on all levels, it was beautiful and touching and funny and fun.  I liked the writing, the acting and, most of all, the visuals.
