    Back when I still obsessed with Disney, I wanted to love this movie. I really really do. I was excited that they decided Emma Watson as Belle. Boy, I was so wrong about that. The acting is so bad, the writing features so many potential subplots that didn't go anywhere, and the worse of all, not chemistry between Belle and Beast. There are no intense romantic moments like in the original. As a result, the dance scene looked plain and meaningless, because the movie failed to make me believe that they are actually in love. This movie, unfortunately, breaks all my obsession toward Disney, from loving it to hating it, to not caring about it anymore. When I looked back at this moment, it still kinda sad.

    This might be weird, but congrats on the only non-repetitive Audible commercial I’ve ever seen on this site. I was actually surprised when you brought it around to a sponsorship.

    Do we think that the proliferation of the "smartest man in the room" trope with the likes of House and Benedict's Sherlock has something to do with what they did to the Beast in this movie?

    Hold on, you're reading that quote from Michael Eisner critically wrong. You read: "We have no obligation to make a statement, but [instead] to make money". But what it actually says is "We have no obligation to make a statement. But [in order to] to make money, it is often important ... to make some significant statement". Your reading makes it sound like he's actively hostile to making history/statement, whereas the quote really says that he's mostly indifferent to it, but thinks that those are a good method for making money. I have no knowledge of his true feelings on the matter, but that quote says something quite different to what you read from it.

    "We can't leave things to people's imaginations, cause then they'd go make an internet about it". I'm sad that she's wearing a ring. And that I'm way older than her. And probably unacceptable.

    At least this film had one redeeming feature: it's a great comparison to show why the original worked.

    The only thing I like about this movie is the Gaston song mainly cause Gaston is my favorite villain and I just need more of that song. Everything else I basically hate

    I like that the reading part also adds “random one nice black guard” who helps Belle clean up her clothes. Like the most pointless type of diversity; very progressive.

    I've watched this whole thing several times, and it's still just so good. A few of these points remind me of the mess that Lion King 2019 was as well. Particularly the ability of traditional animation to wordlessly convey emotion and complexity. 2019 Lion King's characters convey absolutely nothing and rendered my favorite Disney film completely sterile. I'd love to know Lindsey's thoughts on that train wreck.

    If you had said you liked this completely unnecessary remake, I think that would have had to give up on the world in general. Thanks for not destroying my faith in humanity.

    Disney: Opportunity to make commentary on the working class/servants being at the mercy of one aristocrat’s fate and choices in an era of extreme class stratification? Weaving it into the story to garnish the tragedy of helplessness?..... Nah.

    The amazing thing about this movie is It doesn't go all the way with any of its proposed changes. Yes, Gaston could be a great guy Yes, belle could have more depth Yes, shit could have gone places But nope, we're keeping the original, just polishing the turd. Well, the original is still a turd.

    My favourite version of this story is the 1970s Czechoslovakian version, though the French one is also very enjoyable. I found the Disney remake rather boring with way too many songs. But an 11 years old girl I looked after when it came out was absessed with the film and watched it 5 time within a month.

    I think having Maurice locked up for taking the rose was more to undo the original’s reason which relied on the servants welcoming him in and then being surprised that doing so upsets the beast. Like, what were they thinking? Here it’s because of something Maurice directly did. Sure, it’s a kind of petty thing to lock someone up for but in a way I do find it makes more sense than the originals where the beast was punishing him more for something the servants did.

    can i also say, the whole plague thing which is heavily implied/ possibly confirmed i forget to be the black death happened in the 1300s and not the time in which the film is supposed to take place and i genuinely dont understand why they used that as the reason her mom died?????? there were millions of other ways she couldve died that are actually historically accurate but ok lets use the bubonic plague i guess
