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.
