Overall, this was a good adaptation of the animated classic that stayed true to the source material. While the film took advantage of its budget, the overproduction of the musical numbers often did more harm than good. The film depended on the relationship between Belle and the Beast’s but it wasn’t the most believable because of the lack of development and chemistry between Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.
Doctor Strange gets an A for concept and visuals, but the story is essentially a Batman Begins origin with Magic added in the mix.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a solid effort but is ultimately dragged down by its lack of narrative.
The team at Laika doesn’t go over the top with their animation but they succeed in capturing stunning set pieces that enhances their storytelling, emotionally capturing the audience.
