    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★½

    Beauty and the Beast turns out to be a more-than-solid adaption of the animated original. That's likely due to the fact that it's a near carbon copy of it. 


    Emma Watson was better as Belle than I anticipated (preferred her as Jane in a Disney's Tarzan adaption). Dan Stevens is great as Beast and I'm excited for what's next in his career! The supporting cast was perfect, with Josh Gad and Luke Evans stealing each scene they're in.

  • Lion

    Lion

    ★★★★

    First off, I want to say that I love watching or reading positive/inspirational true stories like this one. Lion tells the story of Saroo Breirley who was lost for twenty-five years before being reunited with his family. 
    The first half of the film is ultimately better than the second. The story of older Saroo could never hold a candle or be as intriguing as the survival of his younger self. With that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Lion and the…
