So.. As I predicted my year didn't start very well. A family member got seriously ill and that's rarely nice. I also have my own issues so it's kinda tough at times.. I've been more or less sad the past few years. I just hope things don't get any worse..
I ended up liking Beauty and the Beast but it's certainly not perfect. The musical numbers just weren't as good as in the animated version. It also felt too fast paced at times. I also had a hard time understanding the significance of some scenes or characters. I liked that there was more backstory but it felt like other things suffered at the expense. The jokes were really bad and Gaston was slightly disappointing. Not bad but I expected more. Overall the movie felt bit unfinished.. Like music was in the wrong place at times and some scenes felt pointless. The ending was my biggest problem and just raised questions.. It's a good movie that could've been better.
