On the latest Cinemaholics, Will Ashton and I review Beauty and the Beast and Season 1 of Iron Fist. In doing so, our main question is whether or not critics and audiences are right to be so divided on these movies.
Later, we dig into some mini reviews for Big Little Lies, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch, and Wilson, which stars Woody Harrelson. Hope you enjoy our ranting.
YOU TELL US: Do you think Beauty and the Beast and Iron Fist deserve their mixed reviews? And what did you think of either of them?

I loved Beauty and the Beast and completely disagree with some of the harsh critics of some reviewers 😁.
I feel like when people go after the flaws (like the use of autotune) then it sticks out like a sore thumb but if you sit back and let the movie transport you, then you’ll find yourself enjoying it more and TRUE flaws become obvious 😃
I don’t know about Iron Fist, but I personally enjoyed Beauty and the Beast. It definitely deserves its divided reviews—on the one hand, it’s a bit dull and the characters are slightly off, but on the other hand, the music and effects are amazing, and what new things appear are done incredibly well.
