Disney's live-action adaptation juggernaut continues:

Alternatively, discuss the Disney animation. Or any other versions.

I didn't love it! I think I'm the only one, though. I didn't see the point - it was just a complete re-do of the original, without any sort of twist. I would have liked if it was a different take on the traditional story. Also I thought it was very over-the-top visually.

I love the movie. It's a family movie though same as before but it progresses as time goes by.

Tale as old as time :)

I was struck by how well the falling-in-love was presented.

I liked it quite a bit as an adaptation. I thought the love story was better developed, plus the urgency of breaking the curse was better justified. (In every version of the story, the beast form has some obvious advantages, and in the animation the castle staff were basically immortal housewares capable of carrying on with their rich social lives. In the new version, the castle was falling apart and the staff were about to be permanently snuffed out.)
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

My 8 year old son said it was the best movie he had ever seen.

QED.
