Opening with large advertisement boards in the street that are with half-naked image, Beastly implies what is “good looking” and what basic rules of “beauty” of modern people nowadays.

Kyle is a rude and good-looking, worthy, insufferable cocky and self-centered teenager, which is the perfect mix for a popular bully at his high school. And audience will be easy to find out that some scenes are taken especially for Kyle’s muscles and attractive body shape at the opening and when he becomes a “beast”.

Kyle did not form his wonderful personality out of thin air. His father is distant but leaves the stench of arrogance wherever he goes, and has a similar distaste for ugly people. Yet Lindy, who is Kyle’s opponent for the Green Council, finds something to admire about his personality.When the witch Kendra taunts Kyle for his cruel ways, he fires back with his own trickery

However, everything comes crashing down when Kendra casts a spell on Kyle: he only has a year to find a girl who will say“I love you” to his unlovely face or he will be forever beastly. His immediate response is to go into hiding in a luxury condo-hideout provided by his father (Peter Krause) who, as a narcissistic broadcast journalist, shares his son’s distaste for unattractive people so can’t wait to eliminate his son from his life.

He gains courage and starts to form selfless tendencies. When the attractive yet unpopular classmate Lindy has problems of her own, he strikes a deal to take her in and protect her.

Kyle tries his best to please Lindy. One day, Kyle decided to show his real appearance to Lindy and Lindy did not feel fear or looked down upon of Kyle’s beastly look. Kyle feels very happy.

Building a greenhouse of roses for Lindy, taking Lindy to the lake house, reading a poem with Lindy in the greenhouse, those make the movie romantic and sweet.

At the minute a year is coming and Kyle is not to fear to be a beast, Lindy say “I love you” to Kyle and Kyle turns to his original look. Kyle told what happened to Lindy and no doubt that they fall in love.

Each movie has its value. And there are some audience would like the movie while others don’t.

 I like the cast of the movie.Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa are good looking, Olsen has serious sex appeal,too!No too-bad evil in this movie and the only enemy in the movie is “yourself” to Kyle: How to change inner side of himself.

I like the soundtrack of the movie, too! The soundtrack is sometimes better than the movie itself in some scenes.The time is not too long and good enough to perform the simple story.No more than 90 minutes movie time is appropriate for this simple movie, good to watch in a comfortable weekend afternoon.

How about the bad sides?

Just for my personal opinions, I think Alex’s performance can be better when he earns more experience in movies. At least, he can have more different expressions on his good looking and young face. Let audience feel what the character wants to show from heart. Lots of audience should watch his I AM NUMBER FOUR, and just make people feel he is not different in those 2 movies.

I know Vanessa from High School Musical, I like her voice and regret that there is not proper scenes for her to sing a song in this movie. Not much lines for Lindy in the movie, at least, her smiles are warm enough and lovely.The blind tutor Will is a comedy character in this movie. I feel similar feeling of “Barney” from HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: humorous.

Beastly is not an up-to-date movie, it has been released on March. Since the DVD and blu-ray will be released in one week, so here is a briefly review for you.

Samsung Galaxy S 2 Review – Light Enough!

 

Light and Bright:

The S 2 is so light, You won’t feel the S 2 weighing you down once it’s ensconced in your pockets or handbag While the Galaxy S2 will certainly fit into the tightest jeans pocket, the compromise is build quality – the body just feels cheap and uninspiring. Things don’t improve when you remove the wafer thin back to insert a sim – we’d be seriously worried about snapping it.

Controls are limited to volume on one side, power on the other, MHL port, which serves a dual purpose of charging via USB and outputting to HDMI, and a 3.5mm jack on the top, Samsung includes a range of streaming options including DLNA.

Display: 4.3 inches is not considered to be a big screen nowadays. The S 2’s display doesn’t have the highest of resolutions — 480×800-pixel panel, so it’s not as pin-sharp as the iPhone 4’s 640×960-pixel screen (if we have to compare it with iphone 4, also can be compared with the recent hot HTC android phones, too).

But this screen isn’t blurry at all — text looks very clear, and we didn’t spot any irritating fuzziness around icons. The S 2 uses Super AMOLED Plus display tech, which, despite being a meaningless string of letters, actually makes for a really impressive screen.

In direct sunlight, making out on-screen action is tricky, but this is true of every smart phone, tablet and laptop. The S 2’s brightness means it’s easier to see in sunny conditions than many rival phones, but this isn’t the mobile to finally free us from the sun’s oppressive glare.

As an added bonus, the S 2’s display floats spookily close to the top of the glass front of the phone, which lends it an extremely classy veneer. It’s something we also appreciated on the oozing-with-class Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. The viewing angle is very wide, so you’ll be able to appreciate every colour and hue even if you’re not looking at the screen dead-on.

Android

Running Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread), you get seven home screens customisable with widgets and shortcuts. Swipe down to quickly activate WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and Auto Rotation settings. Phone, Contact, Messaging and Application settings along the bottom are static when you are browsing the home screens. Like other Android phones, press down to customized with Shortcuts, Folders, Wallpaper and numerous Samsung widgets.

The iconography is still somewhat cartoonish, and we still can’t figure why Samsung decided to make the left-most home screen pane the default. Samsung’s widgets – for news, weather, calendar, bookmarks, various clocks, social networking and a task manager, among others – are also more colorful than, say, those HTC uses in Sense, but there’s a good range on offer and we prefer Samsung’s system for choosing from them.

Something we wish Samsung had left well alone was the standard Gingerbread keyboard. The replacement is frustrating in various minor ways: we had problems with it recognizing faster text-entry, particularly missing space bar taps, while the auto-prediction and auto-correction aren’t as accurate as Android’s native system.

Auto-capitalization is inconsistent – sometimes “i” doesn’t get automatically changed to “I” – as is apostrophe entry, so you end up with “im” rather than “I’m” most of the time. Swype is preinstalled, though not the default, and of course there are multiple alternative keyboards to choose from in the Android Market, so it’s certainly not a deal breaker.

Samsung’s other main change is under the “Motion” heading in the settings page, using the Galaxy S II’s accelerometer to control various functionality. You can have the phone mute incoming calls and sounds by turning it face down, or zoom in and out of webpages or images by touching two fingers to the screen and tilting the whole thing back or forward. We had mixed results with the latter, with our movements sometimes not being recognized. It’s also very linear: you can’t angle the phone as you tilt it, to shift the portion of the screen which you zoom in on.

Camera and multimedia: With its Super AMOLED Plus display and high-resolution cameras, the Galaxy S II obviously has plenty of multimedia potential. The main camera, at 8-megapixels, is a welcome step up from the 5-megapixel example in the original Galaxy S; the front-facing camera is, at 2-megapixels, at the top end for what we’ve seen studding the bezels of recent smartphones. In contrast, the iPhone 4 and HTC’s recent line-up offer mere VGA resolution. Still, it’s good enough for voice calling and the occasional vanity snap, but not really anything more thanks to the fixed-focus lens.
