The new live in action version of the movie is all set to release in March, 2017 and while I eagerly look forward to watch this movie, I had to go back and watch the 1991 film again. This film was more of gift from Disney to an entire decade of kids. From its songs to the characters and talking household objects, everything was so enticing!!
Beast’s transformation scene from Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Duration: 1h 50m

This is the same movie which was later turned into the so called ‘life-changing’ book by Rhonda Byrne. The book was a massive hit and it continued to be on the top of the non-fiction best sellers for years. But, before the book came out, a film was made on the same whose story idea was given by Byrne herself.
The Secret (2006)
This Emmy Award winning webseries changed the way I looked at YouTube. The best part of the series is that they took up the risk of portraying a 200-year-old classic which is still loved by the readers with a modern flavour. They ended up becoming super-successful in their venture.
Here is the very first episode of this amazing show called Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2013):
No. of Episodes: 100

( Clockwise) Stills from Pride and Prejudice (1995), Pride & Prejudice (2005), Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2013)
Like Jane Austen once described Elizabeth Bennet, saying, “I must confess that I think her as delightful a character as ever appeared in print”.
Well, 200 hundred years later that statement is a universal truth and Elizabeth Bennet indeed went on to become the most loved heroine of English literature.
Yet another personal favourite of mine. (may be partially because it starred RDJ! 😉 ) But, the film lost its glory in the minds of the audience as the years passed making it one of the most underrated films of 90s. This film also saw RDJ at his best (while he was still young and in his 20s) before he got into legal issues due to substance abuse.
A still from Chaplin (1992)
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Duration: 2h 18m
Genre: Drama, Crime
Director: Jonathan Demme
Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, Ted Levine, Scott Glenn
As I thought of doing a series of movie reviews from the 90s era, I couldn’t miss on this one! Thus, Edward Scissorhands, a strangely dark romance was my first choice. Quite a perfect kiddish Christmassy movie yet a classic for all ages.
