MOVIE REVIEW: Beastly with Alex Pettyfer

Who I’ve decided I have a crush on. Don’t tell my husband. Pettyfer can play any male character in any book I write in the forseeable future. If they ever become books which become movies he’ll be too old . . . #damnthatboyishot

So the movie then . . .

Synopsis: Modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I was so happy it wasn’t Cinderella again. How many Cinderella movies have we had? Um overkill, thanks for the not overkill.

Review: The Ugly factor was more like the gothic puffy face factor and um, there was definitely worse. I wish we could have gone hairy ugly instead of tattooed and scarred ugly because I hate to say it, but some chicks dig that shit. Anyway, he was mostly pretty in the whole movie is all I’m saying.

The other thing is that it’s FUNNY. Honestly, Neil Patrick Harris is a RIOT! He’s blind, is playing the Lumiere character, there’s another woman playing Mrs. Potts, and then of course Vanessa Hudgens is Belle, there’s the messed up father, and then Alex Pettyfer as the Beast. He calls himself Kyle in the movie and Hunter when he’s living with Lindy, (Belle.)

I don’t want to spoil the funny moments for you, but you’ll be laughing out loud at some of the liners in the movie, and then my friend was crying during some of the scenes, so I guess it strikes a chord with some people.

I didn’t cry, but I did laugh.

And the nice thing is that they stuck to the Beauty and the Beast storyline pretty closely, except their twist is that Gaston IS the person who becomes the Beast and well a bunch of villagers don’t come after him with pitch forks. Otherwise, he’s a pompous self lover that the witch casts a spell on, the thing about the years is in there, the roses are in there, the girl becoming the beast’s prisoner is in there, and of course the romance is there, plus him letting her go, her falling for him, etc. etc.

Overall, it was a nice change to see something different done with movies that we haven’t seen before, and I found myself enjoying this one a lot.

5 stars!

    Sounds really good :) Too bad my gfriend is away, I don&#39;t like going to the movies all by myself, and there is definitely no chance of dragging my husband with me :) <br />Thanks for sharing!
