Last week I read the Beauty and the Beast book that was released to coinside with the movie release earlier this year. At first I thought do I really want to read this. Since it was adapted from the movie and I already saw the movie I thought for sure it would be useless. But I am glad I did. I found it to be a nice companion to the movie. I thought it helped pick up on some of the little things that might have been missed in the movie. Especially since this movie is different than the cartoon everyone is used to. I would recommend reading it if you haven’t seen the movie yet or even if you have. It’a an easy fast read so it really wouldn’t take much time.
I enjoyed the new Beauty and the Beast movie. It reminded me of the old musicals I grew up watching. The music was wonderful and I have fallen in love with the new song from the movie “Evermore”. It is just beautiful. Surprisingly I like the Dan Stevens version better (the one that is actaully seen in the movie) and not the Josh Groban version. In fact I am listening to it as I write this post. I like it so much I even looked for it as a ringtone but I didn’t find one.
There is only one movie coming out this year that I am truly looking forward to and we are now less than a month away from it’s release. I may be thirty three years old but I am super excited for the live action Beauty and the Beast movie! I am hoping to see it the weekend it comes out but there maybe a small glitch, we have the three kids all weekend that weekend and only the eight year old can probably see it. But I will see it as soon as possible.
