  • Slipped around all my roadblocks and penetrated directly into my strongest childhood memories, in which animation looked more real than live-action features. Full Review

  • The movie that restored animation's, and in particular Disney's, fortunes, watching it again on the big screen only reminded me what an endearing and enduring classic Beauty is. And I still had a tear in my at the end. Full Review

  • With its strong characters and lively storytelling, animated or not, this deserves its place alongside the cinema greats. Full Review

  • There's enough wit and ingenuity in Roger Allers's story and Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's songs to give the CGI whizzkids a run for their money. Full Review

  • It is a surprise, in a time of sequels and retreads, that the film is so fresh and altogether triumphant in its own right. Full Review
