Tear-jerking yet tedious. Hilarious isn’t it, how one movie could draw tears yet still be rather monotonous at times? Beauty and the Beast did the deed for me. And no, fortunately it wasn’t in a sense that it was so monotonous, I started crying. Having been a child myself, I’ve grown to fancy the typical love-struck fairy-tale; and this was indeed one of them. As of the selected moviegoers, I opined they delivered their parts extremely well. Emma Watson was the perfect portrayal of beauty; she was fair, gritty, strong-willed and very much stood out; which is how I’ve always pictured beauty to be. The essence of the plot was of ordinary, not many details tweaked which I favor as I prefer it that way. Yet the cinematography was fantastic!
Although, there were some parts of this movie that I didn’t quite like. Firstly, the fact that it came across like a full-blown elaborated musical. The characters sang, and sang, and sang, and sang; from the moment the film started. For a brief, I did think the singing had taken more time than the actual parts that carried the plot—although this would be an exaggeration. Moreover, the screenplays between Beauty and the Beast really did swat my heart and welled up my tears. That’s the reason I refer to this is rather monotonous yet tear-jerking.
I have not much left to say about this movie. In conclusion, I thought it was great but not the best, perhaps. Some may love it and some may loathe it, it’s subjective in that sense. But I say, you give it a try!
