As the Disney juggernaut rolls on, the studio has released a live action adaptation of one of their most beloved animated films, Beauty and the Beast. And now, Another Bloody Critic invites you to be our guest and delve into the merits of this new retelling of a tale as old as time.
Disney have had mixed success with these live-action remakes of their classic catalogue, ranging from the outstanding success of last year’s The Jungle Book to the CGI mess that is the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland films. Beauty falls right in the middle of those two. Like Cinderella before it, this is a charming movie that takes almost no risks whatsoever.
