Movies You Should Love is like film school without the tuition. Loren and Scott take on classic and current films and break them down, explaining what makes them tick and why people love them today. In our weekly (well, usually weekly) film discussion, we pick apart, analyze, critique, mock, and dig into both classic films, mediocre movies, and modern masterpieces.
Be our guest to listen to our take on not one, not two, but three Beauty and the Beast films! We’re covering Beauty and the Beast (1991, Disney Animated), La belle et la bête (2014, French), and Beauty and the Beast (2017, Disney Live Action). Does Disney magic strike twice, and can the French reclaim their fairy tale?
