Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up again with my new blog with the title of "Hollywood Movie Review - Beauty and the Beast". Friends, this blog is about a new and a Hit Hollywood Movie "Beauty and the Beast". This movie is based on fantasy film of the same name and is a production of Walt Disney Pictures.  This movie is a fairy tale in which an ordinary but a beautiful village girl meets a cursed prince and they fall in love.  In the end the cursed prince returns into his original shape and the couple starts living a happy life.  This movie has been successfully transformed into a complete adult entertainment in the form of a movie which was generally related to a children's movies earlier.  This movie was directed by Bill Condon and produced by David Hoberman.  The movie depicts the environment of earlier France when Kings and Princes ruled the country back in 18th century.

It’s a tale as old as time, with songs as old as rhyme, but how does the new re-telling of “Beauty and the Beast” stand up compared to its legendary 1991 ancestor?

According to early reviews of Disney’s latest edition, which stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the title roles, the film has a few thorns and falling petals, which detract from the overall beauty of the rose.

While critics have found some recent remakes of Disney classics, such as “Maleficent” and Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” to be worthy additions to magical world of Disney, others, like “Alice in Wonderland,” have been briskly panned. A major question for reviews of “Beauty and the Beast” to answer is, “Which camp does the film fall into?”

“Is the movie as transporting and witty a romantic fantasy as the animated original? Does it fall crucially short? Or is it in some ways better? The answer, at different points in the film, is yes to all three, but the bottom line is this: The new “Beauty and the Beast” is a touching, eminently watchable, at times slightly awkward experience that justifies its existence yet never totally convinces you it’s a movie the world was waiting for.”
