D-Xirable Movie Time! Beauty and the Beast!

Hello, my wonderful and amazing loves!

Today, I got to hang out with my twiny/bestie, Ja, and my Godmother, Ms. Angie. We went to AMC Ward Parkway 14 and saw the movie, Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans. Also starring Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Kline, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stanley Tucci, and Audra McDonald.

Movie Synopsis:
Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a live-action re-telling of the studio's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar (R) winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle's eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston's long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe (R) nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award (R) winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts. Directed by Oscar (R) winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, Beauty and the Beast.

The movie was wonderful to watch and see. We all enjoyed it. My bestie and I even sung along. Lol! The cast did a lovely job singing the songs and bringing these characters to life. Emma Watson was the perfect Belle and Dan Stevens made a great Beast, and they had some great moments together. We loved Celine Dion's new Beauty and the Beast ballad, "How Does A Moment Last Forever". It's so beautiful! If you are a fan of the original movie, then I would suggest you see this version as well.

Hope you enjoyed the pics and post!

Love always,

A D-Xirable Farewell! Saying Farewell to the Obamas!

Hello wonderful and amazing, loves!

I hate to see the Obama family leave the office. Former President, Barack Obama, made history as the first black (or biracial) president in history. I'm so grateful to America for voting for him, and for two terms! Barack Obama and Michelle Obama exude class, grace, and elegance and both are/were like-able people. The White House will have a new president now but the legacies that both former president, Barack Obama, and former first lady, Michelle Obama, have made will remain. I have come to love them, admire them, and respect them. 

May God Bless the Obama family!

Love always,
LaTasha B.

Movie Synopsis:

Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains and "human computers" behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

This movie is so inspiring, amazing, and powerful! I'm so inspired by these incredible, strong, and smart black women and their stories! They used their intelligence to help make history, how amazing is that! Watch this movie as three beautiful African American women rise to the top! I don't know who inspires me most because they were all brilliant and so determined. All of these women broke barriers which demands respect.

This is a must-see movie! I would definitely see it again. It really does inspire you to dream big!

I hope you enjoyed the post and the pics!
