Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is a great timeless fairytale that is so good told that Disney pretty much reused everything in the story for their animated film. The Beast here is magnificent realized and Jean Cocteau add some great surrealistic imagery to the film. Poetic feeling over it. The Downs: Since it is a fairy tale it ends by having the fantastic beast creation becoming a bland and boring prince that seem to lack any charisma and coolness that the Beast have. "
