Tale as old as time….. Beauty and the Beast.
I can still hear that song in my head from the original film back when I was small, I must have seen it over and over 100’s of times. So when I was asked to review the Beauty and the Beast: Book of the Film I couldn’t say no at all. I could reminice over my childhood memories while getting stuck into it. Just to let you know I haven’t seen the new film yet, but can’t wait to do so!
I have always been a fan of movie tie-ins, but normally see the film before I read the book, this time I’m doing it the other way around.
Belle dreams of adventures like the ones she reads about in her books – until she becomes the prisoner of a fearsome Beast in a mysterious, enchanted castle. But life in the castle isn’t as terrible as Belle imagines, and soon she realizes there is more to the Beast than first meets the eye.
Experience this tale as old as time about adventure and love, about looking past first appearances, about the inner Beauty and Beast in all of us. Disney Beauty and the Beast Book of the Film is based on the live-action film starring Emma Watson.
It’s the start of a brand new year so why not try watching something new? Something you have never even contemplated watching before. Something you might have previously thought, no that’s not for me.
A New Year, A New You
My challenge for A New Year, New You is to sit down and watch some musicals! Yes singing and dancing and films full of happiness!
The usual films I love to watch are horrors, thrillers, the dark and serious side to movies. Musicals are a complete world away from those genres.
The list of musicals I’m going to sing and dance my way through are:
- Rock of Ages
- Singin’ In The Rain
- Jersey Boys
- Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
- High Society
Oh yes it’s that time of year again – Halloween! It comes a close second to my favourite time of year, Christmas. The best thing about Halloween is the dark Autumn evenings that have arrived, making it perfect for cuddling up on the sofa with lots of scary movies.
I have always been a huge horror fan since I was about 13. I used to read Stephen King books in English reading time at school. My favourite Halloween reading book as always been The Shining by Stephen King. I do have to say that the movie starring Jack Nicholson is right there at the top to watch this Halloween for that scare!
I’m an old school horror fan. Some of the new ones out just don’t have the scare factor like the original Nightmare on Elm Street and The Exorcist.
