The Highs And Lows Of The New "Beauty And The Beast"

It's amazing, but there is just a few iffy things about it.

The Highs And Lows Of The New "Beauty And The Beast"

Many of us are huge Disney fans, and when we heard that they were making a live-action "Beauty and the Beast," we were so excited. Although for me, I was a little nervous as to how they were going to do the story. Overall, I thought the film was wonderful and only have a few changes I would have made. Here is my take on the good and bad aspects of the film.

1. Low: Belle's Costuming.

The one thing that annoyed me was how the outfits that Emma Watson wore were too modern for the time period. For one example, she did not wear a corset in the film AT ALL. That is one piece of women's clothing that was essential in that time period, and I feel that it spoiled the ballroom dance scene for me.

2. Low: The whole banquet scene before the dance is missing.

This is the scene where we see the beast all nervous and scared about how Belle would react! Why would you cut that scene Disney?!

3. High: Introduction of an LGBTQ character.

Le Fou is my spirit animal because he goes from loving the brute Gaston to the Beast's side.

4. High: The scene of the portrait of the prince.

They show an interesting difference in the portraits. In the new version, they show the prince's parents whereas in the original they don't.

5. High: The first interracial lovers in Disney!

I freaking love these two characters.

6. High: The beast is so attractive.

In all honesty, I would volunteer as tribute to be the Beast's prisoner and then fall in love with him. I mean, if he looks like Dan Stevens after I would be so happy. He just so dreamy and handsome.

He is also a dead ringer for the original Beast who when I was younger thought was really attractive... Please tell me I am not the only girl who thought a cartoon character was attractive...

7. High: The music!

The music that Alan Menken composed was just too amazing for words to describe. Every time music or a song would play, my heart would melt and I would literally turn into Christine when the Phantom would sing. Like, it's that amazing.

8. High: The casting.

The casting was so well done! Everyone who was chosen really morphed into their characters. And when it comes to the villain, you actually become really attracted to them even though you should hate them.

9. High: Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts!

Emma Thompson obviously watched and listened to Angela Lansbury who played the original Mrs. Potts. Bravo Emma!

10. High: Everyone else's costumes!

Oh my god, words cannot describe the feelings I felt when I saw the other cast members' costumes. Madame de Garderobe's were my favorite because they were so elaborate and also historically accurate!

11. High: How they kept it really spot-on to the original.

Overall, Disney did a fantastic job with Beauty and the Beast. Five stars and an A+. I can't wait to see the other live-action films to come!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
