Review: Beauty & The Beast (2017)

"I found much of this version charming, diverting and moving. But it's not a patch on the 1991 masterpiece" -Ian O

"I begrudge the decision of executives when it comes to casting a movie like this. They didn't need a 'star' to fill the seats. They needed someone who could elevate the material..." -Jones

Happy Birthday Chicago

The Windy City is celebrating it's 174th birthday today. Happy Day to all our Chicago readers! Party safe today if you're partying. Chicago is awesome. Not only does it have plentiful good film critic peoples, it's got good cinematic songs!


Which is it for you?
Calamity Jane, Norma Cassady, Sufjan Stevens, The Blues Brothers or the Merry Murderesses of Cook County Jail?

Greetings from Illinois. Clearly "Victor/Victoria" is the victor here, but I sort of love how shameless "Calamity Jane" is in ripping off other musicals.

I LOVE the movie musical "Chicago" but Sufjan Stevens is the one for me! Haha

"Calamity Jane" because she calls it "Chicagee" and it's Doris' favorite movie that she made.

Sufjan all the way.

Samuel -- it is a gorgeous song.
Jackie -- "Chicagee"... maybe we should bring that back?

And all that Jazz!

Sufjan...with Calamity Jane a close second. (And thank you for not including "My Kind of Town." UGH.)
