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

It's OK honey. Now you make awesome Funny or Die skits. It all works out for the best.

Full disclosure: I kind of liked Aeon Flux. It's was a silly sci-fi movie with slick visuals. Theron was good in it. The problem is that no adaptation could ever cut through the convoluted logic of the animated series unless they just cut clips of episodes together and added transition voice overs.

But it's ok. Now she does amazing films like Young Adult and that makes it all better.

Not that Charlize isn't respected. Not that Charlize doesn't have a lot of love from the world. However, she's still underrated as an actress.

In fairness, it's not like Monster was a better movie.

Aeon Flux!

My abiding memory from that film is Pete Postlethwaite's hilarious chrysalis outfit. I did like Charlize being all balletic though. Can she do a good film where she's flying around being graceful? Like Maggie Cheung in Hero or something.

And now I followed up Young Adult with a screeching, over-the-top Evil Queen.

More like, "Remembered those five years or so I followed up my Oscar with equally uninteresting performances and films, one of which I was even Oscar-nominated for?" Thank god for this resurgence. I'd gladly take a batshit crazy Evil Queen over Josie Aimes any day.

I'm not going to lie. For awhile I thought Charlize Theron was going to fade back into a non-essential actress because it felt like she was in a string of endless flops after her Oscar. Her career has been so amazing in the past couple years, however.

"Remember that time I cashed that huge check? Yeah, that was cool."

I shouldn't have watched Arrested Development before Snow White and the Huntsman.
