    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★½

    I've never seen the Disney version. I felt this was the way to go for Beauty and the Beast.

    Sadly, this film didn't do it for me. The singing of every line was just a killer.

I told myself "This is a sci-fi classic... you have to watch it. You'll probably be surprised by how good it is. You love Ridley Scott".

    I was wrong. I was bored to death. The pacing is so slow. The acting and writing are bad. The characters are not…
