    2002 IMAX restoration.

    I watched this a lot as a kid, so the whole thing came hurtling back in pieces, and mostly via atmosphere – the bad vibes of the forest, the shadowy bruise-coloured statues, the enormous hallways, etc. It was enjoyable to revisit.

    The gentle integration of computer animated elements intrigues me – of course, there’s the sweeping ballroom camera moves, but the more effective stuff is a little more subtle; chandeliers, the multi-tiered cake and forks in ‘Be…

    My thoughts: This movie is magnificent. In a rare case for a Disney film, every character works and works well -- even all the cute sidekick characters. The animation is gorgeous, the music memorable and brilliant, and the story beautifully told. It's quite a feat.

    What's funny about this film is that I didn't like it when it first came out. I was at a point in my Disney animated film viewing where I was hyper-critical and overly analytical, finding…

    Lovely animation - that prologue! that ballroom dance!

    Pitch perfect musical numbers. I never fail to be delighted by the Busby Berkeley inspired "Be Our Guest", with its chorus line forks kicking their tines and its baritone beer steins. Or the parodic anthem to Gaston's douchiness, which has some of the funniest lyrics in all the Disney musical pantheon ("I use antlers in all of my deeecoraating").

    Romantic and sweet, goofy yet mature, classy and timeless - Beauty and the Beast is basically perfect. Outside of a few of their 1940s masterworks, I count this as Disney's finest achievement.

    Princess League Film #6


    I say, be my guest when it comes to a Disney film like ''Beauty and the Beast.'' Along with Gaston (one of the Vainest villains in the Disney library, want prof... I just made a list of Disney Villains), good songs, comedic moments here and there especially from the clock and the candle, and a scene in a ballroom that'll BLOW...YOUR...MIND!

    (7/10)- Decent

    Alright Princess League, you're going on pause again, but not for a long while, but until the Blu-ray release of ''Aladdin'' that is.

    The original animated version is better than the "extended" version with this stupid song thrown in for an extra scene. This rating doesn't reflect on the new song FYI.

    This is my favorite Disney cartoon, and watching it always brings about memories from the first time that I saw it when I was 10 years old. I like the characters and the songs more than the other Disney films! It is always a great time machine back to childhood!

    I've seen this movie more times than I can count or remember and it never gets old. I've memorized all the songs which I'm sure sure I should be bragging about. But it's fun to watch the extended version when they include Human Again. I will never get tired of this movie.

    What can be said about 'Beauty and the Beast' that hasn't already been said? This is pretty much 'perfection' as far as Disney films are concerned. It was the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture. It's just one of Disney's absolute best films. It has one of the company's best Disney princesses in Belle and a great romantic story line involving her and the Beast in which they have to get along before falling in love. It…
