Crop And Save
King Charles III (2017)
This could have been an interesting premise, but the stultifying pseudo- Shakespearean dialogue is just plain awful. At first I thought the author was taking lines from Shakespeare's plays and fitting them into the plot. Then, I realized it wasn't.
I'm a fan of Shakespeare, but this was just plain bad. I had to turn it off.
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Main characters just too creepy
As a huge fan of the original Disney animated pic, there were several issues I had with this live action remake. Namely, the Beast and Lumiere. The Beast's horns made him look like the devil, as well as nothing like the original Beast in the animated movie. Why change that? It gave me the creeps. Also, making him two-legged only, instead of sometimes four-legged like in the original movie was distracting. As for Lumiere, there was nothing charming about his face at all. That too was creepy, the kind of thing that scares you in your dreams.
Thirdly, where was the delightful song, "Only Human Again," by the original team of Ashman and Mencken, that made it to the stage production? That would have been much better than the forgettable tunes by Mencken and Rice.
And lastly, why mess with Beauty's original gorgeous yellow dress? The one Emma Watson wore was nice; it just wasn't Beauty's.
So, I would not take little children to this movie. Let them enjoy the original animated feature or the stage production. No bad dreams there.
