Beauty and the Beast (2017)

I watched this film today with Ada.

Belle (Emma Watson) and Beast (Dan Stevens)

Overall, it was an excellent movie. In particular, the movie far exceeded my expectations as a live-action adaptation of the Disney movie.

Remark: Ada liked the film, but felt something was missing during Belle and Beast's first dance.

Attached Trailers: Transformers: The Last Knight (2017). Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017). Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017). Despicable Me 3 (2017). Wonder Woman (2017). Coco (2017). Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).

Today I did a screenshot viewing. While I skipped through the film, the process took about 70 minutes.

Gaston (Luke Evans)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 96% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Instant Comments:
2: provincial - of or concerning a province of a country or empire
2: Why does Gaston look familiar? [He, Luke Evans, was Bard in The Hobbit]
2: Ha! LeFou suggests, "Je ne sais quoi?" to which Gaston replies "I don't know what that means." Interesting because they are speaking English in a French setting. So what does it mean when LeFou uses a French expression which Gaston does not understand?

LeFou (Josh Gad)

2: Interesting, there's an opening on the other side.
1: Gaston speaks to himself in the mirror.
2: Ha. Illiterate.
2: "I've been told I'm clingy, but I really don't get it."
2: Ha. That large snowball.
2: This one section in "Something There" is written with the melody of "Belle".


2: What was the identified cause of the plague? [Yersinia pestis]
1: "You will feel slightly nauseous."
2: Ha! I was wondering how Belle would feel about the Beast's new human appearance. After all, she fell in love with his personality and appearance as the Beast. Later Belle jokingly (?) asks "How do you feel about growing a beard?"

2: I love how they show the main characters in the ending credits.
1: John Legend? [Yes]

Maurice (Kevin Kline)

2: Who was the other person in the duet? [Ariana Grande]
1: There's a Beast dance double.
