This week on the show, we’re taking a look at the live action version of Beauty and the Beast. And uh, spoilers, but...we kinda hated it.
This is a hard thing to reconcile for two Millennials who grew up loving the original animated version. But alas, there was a lot we didn’t love about this movie.
We talk about the differences between the live action version and animated version at length, plus we discuss what becomes unintentionally more real by virtue of being live action. We also dig into the history of the time period, and talk about Belle’s probable social standing.
And if you think we’re not going to talk about the implications of Stockholm Syndrome and whether or not this can ever even BE a love story, then you don’t know us very well yet.
Since we’re new, now is the time to show us and the algorithms that what we’re doing means something to you. Be sure to like us on your favorite social media channels, and tell your friends to listen. We would especially appreciate any iTunes reviews you want to leave us.
