    In the animation the servants were furniture because the beast saw them as objects and not people. Its a metaphore goddamit.

    Ah, thematic subtext. The true filler of plotholes.

    the thing about belle reading books was never "omg she is so feminist she can read" it was more of "she lives in her own world, reads a lot of stories,wants adventures and doesn t care about what other people think". in the original disney movie, the people from the town say that her head is always stuck in a book and that they just don t understand how a person can care so little about her looks and the handsome hunter everyone loves. they were mostly kind to her but they just didn...

    +Fabio Moreira Cool, but the animated movie didn't have that. You're the one who's being dumb and slapping that shit all over it, just like the people who made the live-action remake. You're part of the problem you're bitching about.

    Ironic how a CGI beast still has more of an emotional range than a live-action Emma Watson.

    +Minori Ruba I didn't know she was a feminist because why would I care, she's 3rd best emma. She's just a bad actress, a one dimensional actress. A lot of plain, uninteresting Hollywood types do claim to be feminist. How true that is or what they actually understand is a different story, init.

    Bernardo Souto Not doubting her being good in other work, but those bad roles you mentioned are basically the “hole” I’m talking about. Both can be good with the right direction, but her performance in this movie gave me horrible Bella flashbacks, only this time she’s singing poorly, somehow making it worse

    Belle is already a feminist though? She has an entire song mocking Gaston for thinking she'd be happy to be his widdle wife because she's a woman? And the whole dynamic between them was a commentary on predatory men who won't take 'no' for an answer from women???? Also, when she's thrown off her horse and a literal pack of wolves start circling him, instead of bolting, she... picks up a stick and starts BEATING THE WOLVES???? GIRL.

    That segment was directly aimed at Gaston specifically not men in general. So no Belle wasnt a feminist. The only "feminist" disney movie prior to the tangled/brave/frozen era was mulan.

    Definitely crossing fingers for live-action Aladdin in which Jafar is a wishy-washy commentary on post-9/11 Islamophobia, Jasmine leads the rebellion by letting her hair down for the first time, and the Genie, voiced by Ben Kingsley, explains that his magic powers come from a curse that can only be freed through a legal technicality about wish fulfillment.

    That'd be cool. Still, I do think the hair thing may be more way more complex than westerners tend to think.

    Yes, Will Smith is still playing the Genie and Guy Ritchie is still directing. Comes out May 2019.

    Wouldn't "the servants got punished too because the sorceress is a vindictive jerk" be a simpler explanation?

    Actually the Broadway version did mention something about the servants being neglectful as the Enchantress stormed through in a fit of rage. Also according to the book The Beast Within, well...the Enchantress is named Circe. Now that name alone should explain why she was such a jerk.

  • TheRisky9

     (Mar 7, 2019)

    Right. In the cartoon she's a very typical magical being that you find in old western European fairy tales and folklore. Sometimes they were helpful. Sometimes they weren't. It's rarely explained why they do the things they do or why they have any interest in mortals at all. Why did this enchantress go dressed as a hag? I don't know. Why did the three witches predict MacBeth's fate. What interest would they have in Scottish politics? Who knows? But consistent with their nature when they are scorned, th...

    I feel like Emma made Belle so boring. In the animated version, she’s happy and full of life and excited about education and reading and stuff but in the live action version, Emma makes her seem just out of it and boring and lame and really not as excited as she should be. I adore Emma and she was a wonderful Hermione Granger but I feel like she only knows how to play one role, one sense of person. Not very entertaining. Also, with the camera equipment, I think they should’ve used a different camera be...

    On the plus side it gave birth to the brilliant Youtube video "The Beauty and Lord Voldemort."

    Emma Wattson turns the main character into Emma Wattson because she had too much creative control and no self awareness. The movie

    Emma only accepts roles that show her as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl because that’s what’s keeping up her reputation

    +issac flores I don't think so entirely, but they shouldn't have made her Belle. She did not look like her.

    You know what would have been better? If instead of the Beast being a dick about Belles interest in Romeo and Juliet, he goes “Oh, I’ve read the play myself too. I’m not a personal fan but I’d love to hear your thoughts.” And the two begin discussing the play and later on, whenever they’re reading books, They have these discussions together and respecting one another’s opinion about the books

    GuardianSoulBlade -Maybe because Hollywood thinks romance is just two people arguing with each other instead of two people who actually have interest in each other and want to spend time with one another, understand and value each other’s interests and occasionally have fights but be able to work it out and move on and continue to love each other- but you know what what do I know, I’m not a film critic
