“Tale As Old As Time…” Disney’s “Beauty & The Beast” (@beourguest) Is EPIC!

Disney has truly found itself a new niche with these amazing live action films over the last few years.

Maleficent definitely led the way, but the company’s current live action feature, Beauty and The Beast takes the cake!

This film is nothing short of epic and does an amazing job of adapting the original animated film to a live action format!

The film is based on Belle (Emma Watson), a “funny girl,” and inventor who shares her love for art, learning, and invention with her doting father, Maurice. Belle tires of her “provincial life” in her little village where everything is the same day to day. She longs for adventure and something more than a regular life. Beautiful and intelligent, her attributes earn her the affections of the arrogant and narcissistic village “hero,” Gaston (Luke Evans). However, Belle soon gets more than what she bargained for out of life when she finds her father has been imprisoned by The Beast (Dan Stevens) and selflessly takes his place. Whereas Belle sees herself as his prisoner, she is single-handedly the last best hope The Beast and his servants have to regain their humanity.

Unlikely Heroes! X-Men: Apocalypse Brings Interesting Twist to “New Class” Trilogy!

The X-Men are back–well sort of–in the eighties! Marvel’s merry mutants have returned to close out the New Class trilogy in a rather “apocalyptic” way! The film begins with En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac), the world’s first mutant, born in Ancient Egypt. His life force is waning and requires a new body to transfer his consciousness into. The process usually leaves him rejuvenated and having acquired the powers of whatever body he has taken over. However, it is also when he is at his most vulnerable. He is betrayed by a few of followers and buried under rubble in hibernation for thousands of years. He awakens to find the world not as he expected, believing “the weak” have taken power through religion, government, laws and systems. He sets out to create a new world by destroying the old one!

X-Men: “Days of Future Past,” is Time Well Spent!

Everyone’s favorite, merry mutants returned this weekend with a bang in “X-Men: Days of Future Past!” Yes, Wolverine, Storm, Professor X, and Magneto, amongst many others reminded why being a mutant ain’t so fun. This time around the X-Men of the past and future unite to stop the eradication of mutantkind and the decimation of the Earth at the hands of The Sentinels. The Sentinels are mutant killing robots with the ability to detect the “X-Gene,” and adapt to neutralize any mutant power or ability. In the future we find millions of mutants have been massacred, including a few X-Men. Desperate to rewrite history and stop the Sentinels before they even have a chance to act, Professor X formulates a plan to send Wolverine to the past to unite he and Magneto against Mystique–whose single action will bring about the world of the future.
