Beauty and the Fucking Beast

So my wife and I caught a Thursday night showing for Beauty and the Beast.  We went in there kind of dreading it.  We saw the place was almost sold out on AMC’s reserved seating.  And there were lots of kids, even an infant.  We feared there would be a lot of talking and crying throughout the movie.

Then the trailers started.

First up, The Circle.  Not a surprise, its also got Emma Watson.  Although its a bit creepy.

Then the new Fast and the Furious.  I thought in the back of my mind, huh, that’s a bit grown up but its basically a cartoon whatever.

Then War for the Planet of the Apes.  I can’t wait for this movie.

Then the Red Band trailer for Life….in front of Beauty and the Beast.  I’m not going to describe it but it has a lot of people screaming FUCK in it.

Then CHIPS which is Michael Pena and Dax Shepard making dick jokes.  That was when the trailers abruptly stopped and someone from the AMC theater came out to apologize extremely briefly before the movie started.

Anything I could say about Beauty and the Beast is not going to hold up to this.  Watching these trailers in a room full of kids and their parents just felt amazing.  I’m not sure its healthful to feel this kind of sick glee but yeah.  Wow.  I usually want to talk about whatever movie we saw on the way home.  Not on this trip, nope.

About the movie, it was Beauty and the Beast.  I liked the animated movie, I like the play, I liked this.  But The Event is what I’m going to be telling people about in five years.
