Beauty and the Beast (2017) Review

I believe one of the best animated movies of all time is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 1991. Even critics and the academy agree as it became the first animated movie to receive an Oscar Best Picture nomination, competing among the best such as JFK and The Silence of the Lambs.  The Silence of the Lambs was a formidable opponent and considered one of the best movies of all time. Had it competed on a year when nominees where mediocre at best (trust me we are seeing more of that lately), it would have stood a chance.

Looking Forward to Angels & Demons

The prequel to the movie “The Da Vinci Code” will soon be in theaters on May 15, 2009. Still based on Dan Brown’s famous novel, “Angels and Demons” features the first adventure of Robert Langdon in Rome as he investigates a murder that would take him to the dark history of the Vatican. Tom Hanks reprises his role as Langdon while Ewan McGregor plays the role of the Camerlengo.

Compared to Da Vinci Code, many opine that this is the better novel. Though I was not pleased with the movie version of Da Vince Code, I hope the movie version of Angels & Demons will do more justice to the novel. Here’s a sneak peak of the upcoming movie.
