‘Beauty and the Beast’ is a great movie filled with emotion (Movie Review)

‘Beauty and the Beast’ is full of imagery and elements that make it a must watch movie
Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast is a romantic musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation in 1991.

Beauty and the Beast was released on Nov. 22nd, 1991 directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise. 

It’s an amazing movie for a movie night with your loved ones. It’s a cute, yet romantic movie along with great life lessons you get to see throughout; like being open to change or how real beauty is on the inside.

One of my favorite aspects of the movie is how the Beast slowly opens up to Belle and accepts her help and how everyone in the castle loves Belle and welcomes her as if she were family, including comforting her as she learns to accept how the Beast acts and grasps to love him.

The music put into the film adds to the emotion and imagery of the scenes by making you connect with the sentiments that the characters express, feeling as if you are in the movie yourself. For example, the song Beauty and the Beast” by Celine Dion and American singer Peabo Bryson was played in the scene when Belle and the Beast danced together in the ballroom creating a sweet and loving moment in the scene making you feel that warm feeling as you watch the two characters fall in love.

The cinematic elements that stood out to me were the bold colors used in the scenes when Belle and the Beast are together and all the darker colors used when there is a sense of danger coming. In the scenes with the enchanted rose, I liked how the different background colors made the flower seem more exaggerated.

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie ever. I think this is an amazing film to watch if you’re feeling the need for an emotional ride.

I would give this movie an 11/10.
