    Absolutely gorgeous and a classic spin on the beauty and the beast type fairytales. It has a great style and setting that allows for a romantic look to the past. 

    The makeup for the creature is fantastic and makes him both frightening and lovable once the relationship grows. All the acting is very good, with Sally Hawkins adding a lot of personality to a mute character. Octavia Spencer was great too, adding some light comedy with her whit.

    A surprisingly good continuation of this series, with some good humour and a modern update with a twist. 

    The acting is decent, with the rock and Kevin Hart giving better performances than usual. But Karen Gillan and Jack Black supplied most of the great comedy in the film. Jack had to portray a very stereotypical popular girl, but he gives it all he has got and adds some much needed heart. However, the villian is very under used and bland.…
