At the Movies: Beauty and the Beast

BBRedA spoiled young prince cursed to live as a beast until he falls in love and a girl falls in love with him (looking like a beast) or until he turns 21, whatever happens first.

An eccentric but lovely young woman who wishes for adventures and a place to fit in (quite sure it won't be in her quiet village). A girl who loves to read and use her imagination.

And the magic that brings them together.

That's really all you can say about Beauty and the Beast. For me, it's one of the best movies ever made - along with Up, the only animated films ever to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.

Recently they did a re-release in 3D and, of course, I went to see it. I was so surprised, there were about 100 people in the theater, and only about 10% of them were kids. The rest were people around my age - who were 5-10 years old when they first saw the movie - sitting in the theater, singing the songs and saying the lines, and re-living this magical part of our childhoods.

I'm not usually a fan of 3D, I don't like it, it tires my eyes, but I got to admit it was well done, and it had a lot of 3D scenes not jut one at the beginning and one at the end, that was nice. Other than that, as I said, one of the best movies you'll ever see, so give yourself a chance to see it in the big screen.

PlatPS. - For the credits, they played the song Tale as Old as Time, sung by Celine Dione and Peabo Bryson and I swear we were all sitting there listening to it, mesmerized because most of us had only heard it in Spanish. It's a beautiful version.

PS2- If you can, watch the documentary of the making of the movie. Comes in the DVD and it's pretty cool.---->

PS3 - If you're watching it in Latin America, they kept the original dubbing, not half-assed re-dubbing like with Sleeping Beauty (at leas in my neck of the woods).
