As I've said elsewhere, on various platforms, Disney's Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies. Maybe because of the Ashman/Menken score, maybe because it's my favorite fairytale. So when Disney put B&B back in theatres, I merrily went off to the movie theatre with Jackie and Mediazombie.
It was in 3D. I didn't really care - I'd have gone if it were plain, old 2D - but it was good in some sections. The "Be Our Guest" sequence did have some nice 3D effects, as well as "Kill the Beast." Obvious new smoke effects stood out. I was glad that Disney didn't recut the movie to insert any new sequences. They could have - "Human Again" was originally written for the movie, taken out, used in the Broadway musical, then fully animated for the DVD release - but it was nice to watch the movie just like I did the first time.
Idea for marketing: Sing-along showtimes? We all commented that we wanted to sing all the songs.
1. The Pirates! Band of Misfits - completely dense, unfunny-looking ClayMation children's movie (and apparently changed now that some groups took offense to a leprosy joke - needless to say, the Wallace-and-Gromit crowd aren't old enough to know what leprosy is)
2. The Lorax - wan't my favorite Seuss book but nice to hear Danny DeVito again
3. Star Wars - fail
4. Brave - looks like so much fun, complete with Scots accents (and Billy Connolly!! Kevin McKidd!! Emma Thompson!!! Kelly MacDonald!!); WANT to see this
5. Finding Nemo 3D - awww, cute!
