Movie Review: Beauty and the BeastThursday, April 13, 2017
I know this is a bit late already, but this post has been in my Drafts folder for some time now. Since it's the Holy Week here (which means a two-day holiday for us!), I've got a lot of time in my hands, so might as well publish some of the posts that's been in my queue for a while now.
Tale as old as time. Disney's Beauty and the Beast is one of our favorite fairytales because it teaches us that true love surpasses physical appearances. Honestly, the story didn't have a special place in my heart. I am familiar with the story but I didn't really got attached to it. When the buzz for a live-action movie version came out, I got interested only because Emma Watson would star as Belle. I was curious how she would carry out the character.
Emma is most famous for her role in the Harry Potter movies as Hermione Granger. I've been a fan of the book and the movies. I've watched all of the films, that's why I can't help but still associate Emma with the Hermione character. Actually, this is what the review is all about.
Hermione and Belle has a lot of things in common, and the scenes in the movie reminded me much about the smart girl that Hermione is.

I enjoyed seeing Beauty and the Beast, though I don't know, I think I'll always see Hermione in Emma Watson. Maybe I just miss watching the Harry Potter films. I'd better grab the books and reread the series all over again. 😀
