Beauty And The Beast Review

Excellent

This remake of Disney's 1991 classic is remarkably faithful, using present-day digital animation effects to give the story a photo-realistic sheen. The addition of more songs makes it feel much more like a big movie musical. And the use of real actors adds quite a lot of detail and subtext in the character interaction. But basically, this is still the same romantic fairy tale: lovely to look as it makes the audience swoon and sigh.

It's set in a French village, where Belle (Emma Watson) is looked at with suspicion by her neighbours for her empowered-female ways, reading books, expressing her opinions and running the farm where she lives with her single dad Maurice (Kevin Kline). It's no wonder that the vain soldier Gaston (Luke Evans) pursues her, since she's the only girl who isn't chasing him. Then one day Maurice and Belle have a fateful encounter with a castle hidden in a deep woods under a curse. Imprisoned by its beastly master (Dan Stevens), Belle befriends the staff, who have been transformed into household objects like a lampstand (Ewan McGregor), clock (Ian McKellen), teapot (Emma Thompson), harpsichord (Stanley Tucci) and feather duster (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). All of them conspire to help Belle fall in love with the Beast, which would break the spell.

Director Bill Condon (who made Dreamgirls and the final Twilight movies) makes the most of the live-action cast, allowing them to stir all kinds of undercurrents into their roles, which adds weight and interest to the rather predictable storyline. The film still looks largely animated thanks to an extensive use of digital backgrounds and characters, but the actors add an earthy tone that breaks the surface, bringing in some more textured emotions and sharper humour. The whole cast is excellent, with particular scene-stealing energy coming from Evans and Josh Gad (as his super-faithful sidekick LeFou), who are both funny and villainous at the same time. And Kline is also a standout for a surprisingly thoughtful performance.

Luke Evans Josh Gad

'Beauty and the Beast' stars Luke Evans and Josh Gad got a break from the regular round of generic promotional interviews when they appeared on The Matt Edmondson Show on BBC Radio 1 last week. They were asked to take part in the AlphabetiCall telephone prank - and needless to say, they both won.

Anyone can conduct a prank call, but it takes a special kind of person to do so by starting every sentence with the next consecutive letter of the alphabet, all the way to 'Z'. Luke Evans and Josh Gad, how play Gaston and Le Fou respectively in the forthcoming live action version of 'Beauty and the Beast', managed it however with a themed pair of calls appropriate to their latest film.

Bigots Are Going Out Of Their Way To Ban 'Beauty And The Beast'


Disney Bill Condon Josh Gad

The revelation that the upcoming live action version of 'Beauty and the Beast' will feature Disney's first gay character has caused predictable controversy, with one Alabama drive-in even going as far as banning screenings of the film and Russia has also been called to boycott the movie.

'Beauty and the Beast'People are really angry about 'Beauty and the Beast' news

A small drive-in in Henagar, Alabama are refusing to show the forthcoming blockbuster starring Emma Watson, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens simply because director Bill Condon recently cited that Gaston's sidekick LeFou (played by Josh Gad) was openly gay with feelings for his master. We doubt this will make a significant dint in the film's profits.

'Beauty And The Beast' The First Disney Movie To Represent The LGBT Community


Disney Josh Gad Bill Condon

In a move that will no doubt thrill LGBT people around the world, 'Beauty and the Beast' is to become the first film in Disney history to feature an 'exclusively gay moment'. With Emma Watson also bringing an emphasis on feminism to the role, it could be the company's most diverse role yet. 

Beauty and the BeastJosh Gad and Luke Evans star in 'Beauty and the Beast'

In the past, Disney was considered a prejudiced enterprise on many counts, but now they are embracing diversity by bringing same-sex romance into their upcoming live action adaptation of 1991 animation 'Beauty and the Beast'. It centres around LeFou, played by Josh Gad, and his feelings for his slick master Gaston who is portrayed by Luke Evans.

Beauty And The Beast Trailer


Take a closer look at the cast of 'Beauty and the Beast' in the final trailer for the forthcoming live-action Disney re-boot. Gaston loves himself more than Belle, Belle loves books more than boys, and Maurice loves his daughter more than anybody else. Meanwhile, the Beast hates everything and everyone equally, but that's about to change when Belle volunteers herself as his prisoner in exchange for her father's freedom. She has much pity for the Beast and wants to make the best out of a terrible situation, especially when he presents her with the library of her dreams. He's relying on her love to rescue him from the curse that binds him in his monstrous form, and to rescue his friends and servants from their furnitural guises. But together they have an important lesson to learn about love and companionship.

A Dog's Purpose Trailer


If you're lucky enough to have a dog in your life, you'll know that you don't really own them, they are part of your family and are as unique as any other being under your roof.

A Dog's Purpose is a tale that explains just what our furry friends are here for and how they make a great impact on the lives of the people who love them. Ethan's best friend was his dog Bailey, the Golden Retriever; the pair did everything together, Bailey would loyally wait for Ethan to return from school so the pair could go out and play. Ethan and Bailey went everywhere together and Bailey even played a part in finding Ethan his first girlfriend Hannah.

As Bailey grew older he eventually lost his life but that was far from the end of his story. Bailey was still on earth but reincarnated in the body of a German Shepard, the pup had a lot of new things to learn as this life was going to be far tougher than his previous life on the farm. Bailey was now called Ellie and not only is he now a she, Ellie is a police dog and works with search and rescue. Ellie is very close to her new handlers and believes that this role is the reason why she's been put on earth.

The Angry Birds Movie Review

Very Good

There's nothing particularly memorable about this frantic animated romp, which adapts the iconic phone-app game into a movie using a rather corny plot. But the film is so random that it can't help but get the audience laughing. Youngsters will be delighted by the brightly coloured wackiness, while adults will chuckle at the steady stream of grown-up visual and verbal gags, many of which are frankly surprising to find in a children's movie.

It's set on the isolated Bird Island, where the residents have never learned how to fly and believe they are the only life in the sea. In their tight-knit community, Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is an outcast because of his too-independent thinking. He's ordered to take anger management classes with groovy guru Matilda (Maya Rudolph), where his fellow students are the hyperactive Chuck (Josh Gad), the hulking Terence (Sean Penn) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). Then a pig named Leonard (Bill Hader) arrives on the island, introducing new technology like sling shots and trampolines and planning a big party. But of course he has a much more nefarious intention that only Red can see. In need of help, Red takes Chuck and Bomb in search of the mythical Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage), the only bird on the island who can fly.

There's a slightly nagging sense that Donald Trump wrote this script (it's about a guy who's ignored as he obnoxiously shouts about the dangers of letting strangers into the community, then is proved right). But the film is so utterly ridiculous that it's impossible to take this rather dodgy theme seriously. What's even more odd is how much of the humour is aimed at grown-ups, including innuendo, puns, gross-out gags and unexpected violence, most of which will go over young viewers' heads. But it's so unfocussed that the only response is to laugh in disbelief that someone thought a joke so near-the-knuckle was appropriate for a kids' movie.
