Beastly Movie Review

I wanted to watch a movie but theaters only had movies that are for kids.  I’ve really grown past that stage.  There were only 2 movies that I could choose from: Beastly & Arthur.  I felt that Arthur was just too much of a comedy that we ended up choosing to watch Beastly.

I had low expectations but boy, was I so happy after watching it.  If you love romantic movies, then you should watch Beastly.  I had tears in my eyes on certain parts of the movie.  I guess I easily get touched especially with scenes full of love & care.  Anyhow, in spite of the fairy tail-ish story, Beastly was so much more!

Aside from the good looking actors in the movie, there were valuable lessons to take home too!  Lessons like:

  • Love is not just about material things.  This applies to all kinds of relationships (romantic, family, etc).
  • Beauty is only skin deep.
  • Kindness & love warms the heart.
  • Love is never ugly (as what’s written on the movie poster).

Anyway, so what is Beastly all about?  Beastly is a modern version of Beauty & Beast.  Kyle Kingston (played by Alex Pettyfer) is arrogant, mean & vain.  He wins the student party president out of being wealthy, popular & good-looking.  He seemed to have gotten those traits from his father.

During the after party of Kyle’s victory, Kyle humiliates & bullies Kendra (played by Mary-Kate Olsen) who is actually a witch in disguise.  Embarassed & angry, Kendra transforms Kyle into an ugly man.  She informs Kyle that he has only one year to find someone who loves him or he stays that way forever.

I love how the story unfolded from this point of the story.  I don’t wanna spoil everything to you so I suggest you go catch Beastly in your favorite theaters while it’s still showing.  Beastly was a nice movie to watch!  I liked it a lot.  I went out of the theater feeling very good.  It was a humbling experience too!

My Rating for Beastly: 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    YES! Hindi ako nag-iisa. A lot of critics dissed the movie, but I was so so so feeling lighthearted after watching this. I didn’t know what to expect when I entered the movie house (didn’t even see the trailier, just the poster), but I’m so happy I tried it out. :) This is my latest blog entry as well. Haha!
