@mark-kamibaya What’s an indie?
@ethryndal I know. The only thing protecting me now are my dragon instincts….and the fact that I’m not alone. I side with @daeus. 😀
@kate-flournoy Well, about the arcs, one reason I didn’t really see them was because they seemed to happen so fast. It didn’t seem like Cassian cared about anything then suddenly he’s nice. Jyn was really just unrelatable to me. I mean, maybe its a mix of my two Disney dislike/cliches. Dystopian rebellious girl along with Disney orphan… ?
And the theme, it didn’t really seem like anyone had very much hope. They seemed pretty confident that they would lose.June 7, 2017 at 11:29 am #34387

@dragon-snapper no no, you missed it! They weren’t hoping for themselves. They did what they did in hopes that the people who survived them could use it to make a better world. In faith, I guess.
And… I haven’t watched a ton of Disney, so I guess I didn’t have that problem. For myself, I can just say I don’t think I’ve ever related to an entire cast as completely as I did with this one.
I suppose of taste there can be no discussion. 😉June 7, 2017 at 9:50 pm #34439
@holly-nelson-gray @emily-d What’d you think and why? I’m really curious
@dragon-snapper It’s simply a film made outside of maninstream media. So, basically, a movie made without a big budget. And, because of the low budget, they’re usually dramas. Not huge action flicks. Examples of indies: Little Miss Sunshine or Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl. Most Christian films count as indies too.June 8, 2017 at 5:58 am #34443
@mark-kamibaya Yeah, it was really good! I enjoyed it. BUT I like Do You Believe better. And What If. Have you seen them? They’re amazing. (And What If is hilarious. It’s about this millionaire guy who-AND I’m going to stop right there before I spoil the plot. Long story short: it’s hilarious.) Have you seen either of those?June 8, 2017 at 10:59 pm #34483
@emily-d I’m not proud to say it, but I haven’t seen either of those. I just wanted to know if they’re worth my time. And I guess, because of your answer, they are.June 9, 2017 at 6:22 am #34484
@mark-kamibaya Yes they are totally worth it. Do You Believe is not a funny movie, but it’s still really good. But I think What If is even better. 🙂June 9, 2017 at 6:30 am #34486
@emily-d I’ll check ’em outJune 9, 2017 at 6:47 am #34487July 13, 2017 at 10:16 am #36843

*runs into room* *hunches over to catch breath*
So…I don’t think anyone has reviewed the new Beauty and the Beast movie yet. I saw it last week.
I think they did a pretty good job of fleshing out the characters. Dan Stevens as the Beast was an excellent casting choice. He was gruff and cold, but he had an underlying sadness and hurt throughout the movie.
Belle (Emma Watson) was not quite the lively bookworm we saw in the animated film. She can certainly act, but I feel like she didn’t put everything she had into the role. She has a beautiful singing voice, even if it’s not strong and powerful. Overall, she was simply good, but nowhere near excellent as Belle (and this is just my humble opinion of course).
They also did a great job with backstories. In the animated film I always wondered where exactly Belle’s mother is. You’re given some answers in the remake.
WARNING: the film is rated PG for “action violence, peril and frightening images”. However there is other questionable material. This was very disappointing to me. And it made me really sad about where our world is today. Just FYI on that.
Overall, I think the movie was very well done. The sets were magnificent and the costumes were stunning. My advice: watch it.July 14, 2017 at 7:05 am #37108
