Movie Reviews

  • its classicism feels unforced and fresh. Its romance neither winks nor panders. It looks good, moves gracefully and leaves a clean and invigorating aftertaste. I almost didn't recognize the flavor: I think the name for it is joy
    by A.O. Scott [NY Times ]
  • it's fine and funny and sweet and lush and some of the songs are infectious, but I still don't completely understand why it exists - and why they couldn't do more with it
    Review rate : B- by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • it's an efficient BATB, machine-tooled for sweetness, with flashes of fun, destined to be the centrepiece of a million teen sleepovers
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • it's a lovingly crafted movie, and in many ways a good one, but before that it's an enraptured piece of old-is-new nostalgia
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • Beauty and the Beast marries visual spectacle and sumptuous design work with a better story than its original, casting a spell on old fans and newcomers alike
    3 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • Beauty and the Beast is more than just eye candy. It's a Michelin-triple-starred master class in patisserie skills that transforms the cinematic equivalent of a sugar rush into a kind of crystal meth-like narcotic high that lasts about two hours
    by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • aside from the thrill of its lavish sets and costumes, there isn't much new to offer in this "Beauty and the Beast"
    Review rate : C by Jude Dry [Indiewire ]
  • after a couple musical numbers, it occurs to you that the film you're watching is every bit as animated as the original, but it's somehow turned out less lifelike, despite its considerable technological advantage
    by Emily Yoshida [Vulture ]
