    This has to be Disney's most overpraised movie ever. I've watched 4 times and i still can't manage to discover what's so great about it. I'm not saying it's bad, but it's definitely far from being Disney's greatest achievement as many claim (and don't get me started on that Best Picture nomination...)

    Disney's 30th animated feature film

    As a now 36 year old male, I have never and will never be ashamed top admit that this is by far one of my favorite Disney animated films. Maybe it's because it was released at a prime age for me to enjoy animated films, but I've probably seen this a dozen times. I think the film speaks for itself considering it's the first animated feature film to be nominated for best picture at the…

    What's one to do when working in a video store where only light M-rating or lower movies can be watched on the screens? Return to the best of Disney. I think I'll always be a bit in love with both Cogsworth and Lumiere.

    As I kid I found no enjoyment out of this movie, but I think now I can watch it and appreciate the story without feeling like a girl. Girls were so lame in the early 90s. But now I really love watching this and seeing how great the animation is, especially the big song sequences. I really love Gaston's song. The bad guy songs are always so entertaining. And of course, watching the dishes and furniture in a big musical…

    Absolute perfection, and all in under 90 minutes.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    No other adaptation of the classic French fairytale has come close to capturing the magic of Disney's effort. It's a gorgeous film that fully relishes in its medium; the majestic Gothic architecture of the castle, the hulking form of the beast, the charming anthropomorphic household servants etc. These all would look not half as fantastic in live action, but in one of the earliest uses of the CAPS system, are beautifully fluid, lively and detailed. It sets the tone for…

    The Little Mermaid may have re-launched Disney’s popularity at the box-office, but their next literary adaptation was to take them to places unheard. Beauty and the Beast is what many may argue to be THE definite Disney picture, and, to this day, their finest studio work.

    Its many virtues lie in the presentation of its narrative. There is so much elegance to be found in this traditionally executed tale, much…

    Beauty and the Beast is truly a nearly perfect animated movie. While I think there are some unnecessary scenes and the general tale quite predictable, but it's a cute tale about not judging books by their cover (both literally and figuratively) and the music is extraordinarily good, as you would expect to be with a team up like Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. I certainly notice some of the smaller problems in this movie as an adult but there's a lot of nostalgia attached to it so I still adore it.
