Hi, friends! What’s been going on in your life lately?
It’s been a little over a month since we talked about life lately, so I thought I’d check in and share what’s new with me. I’d love to hear from you as well!
BEAUTY & THE BEAST /
I’m not a big movie theater goer anymore—I’m pretty sure I saw every release in theaters from 2005-2007 no matter how subpar the film was—but the second I saw the trailer for Beauty and the Beast months ago, I knew I had to see it in theaters.
M and I made a date out of it on Friday night, grabbing margs and Mexican food before heading over to our local theater with reclining seats. I am so glad we saw this one on the big screen. From start to finish, I was captivated. The music was great and the castle set was amazing. My only regret is not watching the cartoon version before I saw the film—there were parts of the movie I had forgotten since it’s been so long since I’d seen the original. I also wasn’t sure what they changed as compared to the cartoon. So, if you haven’t seen it yet—definitely try to watch the 1991 version before you go!
Lastly, since much of the all-star cast is stuck as their inanimate objects most of the film, M and I had no idea Stanley Tucci was the piano—and yelled out his name rather loudly during the ending credits. Several people in the theater got a laugh out of that!
