    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★½

    A splendid (perfectly cast) cast and stunning visuals make this live-action re-make worth the price of admission. With more backstory and depth of characterization and a few forgettable new musical numbers, there are hits and misses when it comes to new additions but overall it works and works very well indeed.

    ★★★★

    A solid origin story elevated by mind-blowing effects (you've never seen anything like this), Giacchino's excellent score, and a well-cast, talented group of actors led by a great Cumberbatch who is clearly having the time of his life playing the magical, Mister/Doctor/Sorcerer Supreme.

    Everything is awesome indeed. Refreshingly original, fun, witty, and enjoyable - with the catchiest song I've heard in years - the film's voice cast has a ball across the board (Chris Pratt is PERFECT) and so does the audience.

    Definitely my favourite movie of 2014...so far...
