Beauty and the beast
10 January 2021 | by auuwwsSee all my reviews

A very good movie. Emma Watson embodied the character of Bell excellently, CGI in the film was good but in the faces it was not good, the servants are still enjoying in the film even though their songs are not as good as the original film, I felt that the film had lost the charm of the original film, they deleted the scene of Belle And The Best in the Snow pissed me off, the new scenes that were put in the film did not need to be prepared in one scene, their focus on the witch was not interesting, the film was too long And bored, I felt that it was a copy of the original movie with extended scenes and some new scenes. If you see beauty and the beast, I advise you to watch the anime version. All the nice things in the movie were in the original version, most of the new things were bad
