This was not a good film for many reasons. First off, Emma Watson, she is not a good singer, and throughout the full movie she's playing Hermione, not Belle. There's also the Beast and all the other furniture characters, they look awful, there was not a single time where I believed that they were actually there, and I straight up laughed when they did the reveal of the beast, he looks absolutely ridiculous, heck, the original animated version is more terrifying than the pile cgi! And also, WHY WOULD YOU REMAKE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST?!!!! The original is already a perect movie! When I think of Disney, the classic Beauty and the Beast is always the first movie that comes to mind! So I'm in the minority when I say, this movie is awful.

First, Too many are focused on Emma's previous roles than actually watching the movie. Second, the CGI was okay but deminished by the fact that it was way too much. Granted the furniture and etc was supposed to animated but could've toned it down for the beast. Third, even though it was a remake, wished they added some new ideas to make this an upgraded version instead of making an exact copy. A for effort but C+ for follow through.
It took me three times to finish this. I love the original animated one. This is inferior in every way. The actors can't sing, the dialogue is cringey, the movie looks downright ugly at times. The writers added new side plots that end up being pointless and wildly struggle around to fix things that didn't need to be fixed. Only thing that saves this from a one star is the fact that your child might like it. But just show them the original as it's better in every way.
