I only stuck with it to see how mean Beast could get
September 20, 2018
I realized how terrible this movie was going to be about 30 sec. in, and literally only stuck with it to see how far the Beast 's d**k-headed-ness could actually go. Ultimately, believe it or not, I've seen worse movies. I actually thought Belle's acting was decent enough... Eric aka The Beast on the other hand...his acting was sooo bad. I think it got a modicum better when he started acting nicer, so I guess the guy is better at acting nice than mean? I dunno. Then I personally hate how they never show the Beast apologize to Belle's father for chewing him out the way he did. If you're going to date someone's child you need to make amends w/ the family if you wronged one of them...
And then there's Craig (Belle's friend's cousin). 😤
That guy was a f-ing creeper, point blank period.
So desperate, clingy, couldn't take "no" for an answer, and couldn't take a frickin' hint either! He barely knows Belle, has been on *one* date w/ her (that she cut short) and yet by the middle of the movie decides she's "The One" for him.
😒he just pushes and pushes, acting like Belle needs to listen to him and they aren't even friends...I can't stand characters like that. He was borderline-psychotic.
This movie even reminded me of 50 Shades of Grey (lol) in that the main character is an a-hole and abusive, but hey, he's also rich and handsome so it's all good in the end...all it took was for that "special", sweet, nice, pure girl to come along and make the jerk want to change his ways 'cuz she's, ya know, soooo special...newsflash that rarely ever works in real life. Speaking from personal experience.
All-in-all the movie had potential but it just fell flat for me in many ways...
