First things first... let's get into what was GOOD:
- It was pretty
- Gaston was hot
- The beast was hot
Good? Agreed? Now let's get into the nitty-gritty
1. Belle....was kinda a b*tch. There I said it.
The film opens....we get some backstory (um, random) and then we get into the first song. "Bonjour! Bonjour!" And all that jazz. Belle's first real scene shows her running into the town's "douche bag" Gaston (we'll get to him later) and declining his advances.... tbh.... she pretty much slams the door in his face...and FOR NO GOOD REASON. At this point we haven't seen Gaston's douche-baggery. Sure he seems a little self-centered but he's just complimenting her and giving her some damn flowers....wtf Belle. She couldn't even politely accept them? Then FLASH FORWARD to her "reprise Belle" song where she sings about what a brainless idiot Gaston is.... when he literally was just stopping by to give her advice (which actually is really sweet) and saying how he'll take care of her if she marries him.
Now- I GET IT. Belle wants freedom in the great wide somewhere.... BUT remember: at this point we haven't seen Gaston be evil, or do anything that really makes him the villain.
Wtf Belle. You calm down. Maybe if you weren't so rude and constantly annoyed....I would have had more sympathy for you, but honestly I thought Gaston was really endearing and you were just.... cold.
